Hey if anyone here uses IRC, you can come chat/idle/matchmake in #SNKPlaymore
. Most people use mIRC
. In the channel you'll find players of all skill levels to talk strats or set up matches on GGPO/2DF. Come join!
If you don't use IRC, here is how to join the channel with mIRC:
1. When you first use mIRC, a window will pop up and you can put your nickname, plus other stuff like real name/email, you can put whatever you want and click OK at the bottom (not 'Connect').
2. You'll have a big empty chat box in front of you. Click on the line at the bottom to type, then type /server irc.easynews.com
and press Enter. You can also use irc.efnet.org
, which will get you a random EFnet server, but I find a lot of them are not reliable, but the easynews one is good so I recommend that one.
3. After you're connected to EFnet, there will be a favorites box that pops up. You can just close it for now, and check the box to have it not pop up again. In the same chat box as before, type /join #snkplaymore
. You should now be in the channel.
4. (optional) If you want to join the channel automatically after connecting to EFnet, bring up the favorites menu again (it's the little heart icon at the top, by default it's the 3rd one on the newest mIRC). Click Add, type the channel name in the top box (include the #), then at the bottom under Networks click add, then find EFnet on that list and click OK. If you want the channel to be automatically joined, just check the Join on 'connect' check box and you will join automatically when you connect to EFnet.
If you don't want to use mIRC (which I recommend, because it takes up very little resources and is less annoying than always having your web browser open), you can use Mibbit
, which is a web-based IRC client. To join with Mibbit, just go to http://www.mibbit.com/chat/
. Next to 'IRC:', select 'EFNET [webirc]' in the drop-down menu. Type your nick next to 'Nick:' and '#snkplaymore' next to 'Channel:' and click 'Go'.
"The challenge is, how can we create a mechanic where it makes your mistakes not matter and turns the game into a clown show? All these solutions are great but they don't take into account what X-Factor is supposed to do, which is turn the game into a joke."- O. Seth Killian
