    Hello tempers

    Some of you may not be aware but GBAtemp has its own official IRC chat server and official channel #gbatemp.net

    Lately activity there has been sparse, and we would love to see more people come on to talk and take part on the chat! Coming onto IRC is far easier than you think, GBAtemp has its own inbuilt Java client that lets you connect directly to the official channel with zero configuration needed!

    Feeling more adventurous and want to use a dedicated client to connect, but don't know how to configure it? Then use Antoligy's fine irc guide, which guides you through the set up process step by step, as well as providing a n00b friendly tutorial to common IRC terms and etiquette.

    So if you want to talk to the likes of Costello, Vulpes Abnocto, FAST6191, Minox_IX and other fine staff and members live please feel free to join us!

    EDIT: For those using the java irc client please remember that your browser and firewall will try and block the connection, when you see this screen:
    [​IMG]

    Select "no"

    And when prompted by your firewall:
    [​IMG]

    Select "Unblock"

    It took me a really long time, well, 10 minutes, to figure out how to have two servers with two separate chats open before on mIRC. I guess I'll have to figure it out again.

    When it asks do you want to block (recommended) you click no.


    I'm on but how do I go on a channel?

    put #gbatemp.net on wherever you join a channel. I haven't used the web-based one, so I don't really know where it is. sorry.

    Use the command "/join #gbatemp.net" without the "" in your status box.

    I asked Costello to check out the error the Java client is having.

    I cant see you on the inbound or outbound connections on the server, more than likely you didn't select to unblock the connection as others have said above.

    You can also use mibbit (http://chat.mibbit.com)

    Just select GBAtemp from the dropdown, enter a nick and channel (like #GBAtemp.net, with preceding #) and press Connect.

    You can create a mibbit account to make it auto-connect.

    /server -m
    (or enable "open in new window" on the connect screen)
