    You can't download IRC, but you CAN download an IRC client, such as mIRC.

    You probably downloaded mIRC which is an IRC client. Think of mIRC as the middle man, it contacts the server via the client.

    Have you actually joined chat rooms or just connected to the server?

    Try joining the GBAtemp IRC server/channel. There's usually someone chatting on there.

    I had that problem with mIRC too. Use the guide BoxShot posted and you'll be fine.

    Could you post a screenshot of your setup? (this being: the server, host:Port, channel, etc)
