Here is a post for the IRC channel from DarthPaul’s previous thread:
ACCESSING MIRC - thanks to Illwill
Ok, here is the info to get setup on IRC so we can make this much more streamlined. It will explain how to get mIRC, how to get connected to Quakenet, and how to join our channel. Please be sure the read the directions thoroughly if you are unfamiliar with irc. For those with experience, just make sure to use your PSN or SRK name and goto Quakenet and channel #StreetFighter4:
click on Download mIRC
Click on Download mIRC again
Either Run or Save the file that pops up
Choose the install directory for mIRC (default is fine for most)
Let mIRC install
In mIRC a dialogue box should auto pop with some stuff for you to fill in:
Full Name: obvious
Email Address: obvious (you don’t get spam (that I’ve ever seen) from mIRC)
Nickname: Use either your SRK u/n or your PSN
Alternative: If you have different SRK and PSN names, use the one that you didn’t use in the previous prompt
Invisible Mode: If you turn on invisible mode, people will not be able to see you on IRC unless they already know your nickname, or if you join a channel or talk to them privately. I recommend keeping it checked so no weirdos randomly try and give you tehsex0rs.
Click on the ‘servers’ category on the left
Navigate to ‘QuakeNet’ and dbl click on it
Dbl click on ‘random US server’
Click on 'Connect’
Under ‘enter a channel name and click join:’ type #StreetFighter4 and press enter
NOTE: you can clik on the ‘Add’ button and enter the appropriate information to make #StreetFighter4 one of your favorites.
mIRC is really helpful because you can immediately chat about your match and point anything you need to. It also will allow you to choose through a list of players on mIRC in case if your XBL friend’s list is full. Other players are constantly in the channel so you can even ask match-up specific questions and get an answer immediately. I strongly encourage all of you to download and use IRC.
P.S. We really need more XBL users to connect because so far PS3 is reigning supreme. C’mon XBLers!
