Internet Relay Chat, talk to fellow forumiers live

Recommended Posts

We want YOU!The frick is IRC?
IRC, or Internet Relay Chat, is a chat system that enables 2 people or more to chat in realtime. Often this is a terrible idea but it turns out GTANet has an IRC network set up anyway, just for you!

 

IRC can be used in the form of one person talking to another person in private or more commonly in the form of channels.

 

Each of these channels have their own rules and regulations, I'll list the most awesome ones in this post

So why this topic?
Basically, IRC has quietened down somewhat of late, because you weren't cool enough to know it exists. Until now. I'll make it as easy as possible for you to join in because we care about what you have to say!

 

Awesome! How do I join in?!
To join in with this, you first need some way to connect to the IRC server. The very most easiest way to connect is through your web browser. There are other ways to connect, in the form of standalone clients.

 

If you already know what an IRC is, you can plug the following details into your client

Server: irc.gtanet.com

Port: 6667

Channel: #gta

What channels you got then?
For the following, click on the works that have a # on the front to actually go and visit the channel in question.

If you wish to be in more than one of these places at the same time I must emphasise don't click more than one (else things get really confusing, and you may get banned by accident) scroll down a tad to the command list below

#gta This is the Gen Chat of IRC channels, most likely where you want to go
#gta4 This would be the current gaming related channel, as you may have guessed it's mostly relating to GTAIV
#ITDept For more info, check out its topic in PC Chat
#ilikerobot Talk to eggbot without anyone getting annoyed. Rather spammy appearance to the new user...
/list Once on IRC, lists all of the channels (see below)
The smart folks in the audience may have guessed there's only one thing that changes with each of these links, feel free to turn your channel into a mibbit widget with a bit of a tweak, plug it in this topic if you must (but please be descriptive about your channel)
How do I operate this IRC-mo-tron?

 

The basic commands you may need are the following, keep the forward slash at the start else it makes you look a mite silly!

 

Things that are inside the greater than and less than signs are things you need to fill in (don't include the <> themselves!) e.g. If I used /nick <nickname> I'd type /nick eggburt which would change my nickname to eggburt

/nick <nick> This changes your nickname to <nick>
/join <channel> Use this to join <channel>, to be in more than one place
/part <channel> This is for when you decide <channel> is lame, and want to get out of it
/query <nick> Use this to start a private chat to <nick>
/list This command will give you a listing of all (most at least, some are hidden) the channels on the network

It also shows you the current topic if they have one, which usually describes the content of the channel

A little note here, if you wish for some reason you would like to run your own channel, you can /join one that doesn't already exist, making you the guy in charge!

 

Running your own channel goes a little beyond the scope of this document though!

You've still not sold it to me, give me awesome quotes
Fine, if you're still not up for it, I'll slap in a few quotes from people talking to eggbot. eggbot is an odd fellow (who is a robot) that people talk to when there's nothing else going on. He's rather foul mouthed and should not be used to fully determine the greatness of IRC

<Alf> wow.gif you f*cking scumbag eggbot

<eggbot> I'm a cultured scumbag.

 

<&eggburt> eggbot stop shouting too

<@eggbot> What if they all shouting too.

<&eggburt> well if they all shout eggbot you can join in but I wouldn't start it

<@eggbot> I FIGURED SO BE FUNNY HOW DO YOIZZLE TAKE A SHIZZLE SHOIZZLE THAT AT PEOPLE?

<&eggburt> OI

<@eggbot> OI VEY!

 

<Alf> ha eggbot my lad, you're learning

<+eggbot> Haha, haha, ha, aha, ha, ha f*cking ha.

 

<eggburt> eggbot oddly got smart after the noob rush of gtanet wow.gif

<eggbot> Oddly enough I was active in your bedroom!

 

* @Guybrush highfives eggbot

* @eggbot highfives eggburt

<@Guybrush> >:|

<@eggbot> That's like me saying I ditched you, bitch >:|

 

 

Final notes
I will point out that if you decide to spam up the place, or generally act in a way that would get you banned here, you will be banned from the IRC channel and possibly the network in general. You can be tracked back to your forum username. Don't be a jerk.

Also bear in mind channel has its own rules. Aside from GTANet official channels (e.g. #gta) the channel rules are determined by the people in control of the channel. If they wish, they can ban you for any reason. Please don't ask here to be unbanned from unofficial channels, it wont help.

 

Any worthy channels that appear or get pointed out (on GTANet..) will be added to the above list. See you there!

And here I was, thinking the GTAF/GTANET IRC was full of a cliquey bunch who disliked outsiders; like the clubhouse for the forum oldskool. I actually don't know why I got that impression at all as you're al cool on here. I also dont know why im only now questioning it, must've been something from my early days that just stuck.

 

The IRC never really crosses my mind, you got my attention. Might drop in soon.

Also, I almost shat when I noticed there was a convo in #gta.

Quick google search says the name is disallowed for whatever reason. Stupid name, 1st character is disallowed etc.

 

If you're using 08venturas, probably bc that first character is 0. Try just Venturas.

It often takes on the appearance of RPing GTA4 in a public IRC channel. monocle.gif

Hardly a meltdown, more like people trying to take the piss out of me and me getting my points across. I also dont think 'hilarity' is a good word to use especially when you get called a thick scouse c*nt by somebody who joined the chat literally 10 secconds earlier.

 

But yeah i wont be going back there so enjoy your elitist circle jerk guys!
