PostSubject: Huntsville By Night IRC   Thu Oct 03, 2013 1:30 pm

We've set up an IRC chat room for use in our domain.  At the moment, it will be used primarily for running downtime scenes.  It has a dice roller built in, a channel for OOC and one for IC, and has a few other features that make it work well for using with our game.  I'm posted below the instructions for using it.

There are 3 primary ways to access the IRC chat:

1) Web Chat

The first and easiest is to just go to www.darkmyst.org and click CHAT NOW, or go to http://www.darkmyst.org/?page=webchat

From here you will see Webchat log in.

Type in a username.  This can be the character name you will be using for the downtime i.e. Chetan or Revvy.  Below you will choose what channel to join.  We have 2 primary channels:
#HBN-OOC
#HBN-IC

After typing in #HBN-OOC or #HBN-IC it will open up a browser based UI that you can chat in.

2) mIRC

You can also use an installed IRC client to access it such as mIRC.  You will install this on a PC or MAC.  This has many more features and while a bit more complicated for initial set up, it has a lot of advantages over the web browser.  
You will go to www.mirc.com to download the client.

There is a great set of instructions here: http://www.darkmyst.org/?page=faq-connecting

3) Smart Phone Client

A third option is to use an app for a smart phone.  I have an android phone and I use AndChat.  Their website can be found at: http://www.andchat.net/
You can download it from the Google Play store by just searching for "andchat"

They have some great tutorials, but a quick way to do it is to open the app, and click the plus at the top right for add server.

You will see


You will type in the following settings:

Name: Huntsville By Night
Address: irc.darkmyst.org
Port:
SSL [Uncheck the Box]
---------------------
Nick 1: [Your Nickname]
Username: [Pick a primary username]
Real Name:
Autojoin: #HBN-OOC, #HBN-IC
Autorun: [You can leave this blank for basic use]
Password: [You can leave this blank for basic use]
Encoding:
Logs: [Check Yes]

Then click save at the top right and you are good to go.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Please use this resource.  I think it will be a great asset for the venue and can be a lot of fun if we use it.

If you have any questions, just PM or post in this thread.

Carl and I are registered on the IRC network for this. I am totally down for some IRC Roleplaying. Smile Is it GWB Sanctioned, or just soft RP?

Glad to hear you guys signed up.

It isn't a sanctioned IRC channel as of yet, so we can't run official games through it. However, if an ST is present, hard RP can be done.

FYI - Mirc is only a 30 day trial... It costs $20 to register.
