I realized that nowhere on the site is the IRC chat room advertised since the upgrade to phpBB3. So I decided to make a global announcement about the IRC chat room.

We have a quite active chat room that usually has several people actively having a conversation and around 20 people in the room at a time. Please join if you are bored or need help with anything.

More information is here.

I hate to say it, but it's hardly a help channel anymore. Usually if anyone comes in for help no one is willing to do anything. The topics discussed there are far from Dreamcast-related.

Well, I didn't necessarily mean help with Dreamcast-related stuff. I don't ever see anyone come in for Dreamcast help anyway. But if someone did, I wouldn't hesitate to help them.

Never actually visited the IRC channel, though I'm sure it'd be a blast.

It's pretty boring that channel.

IRC Chat
Please join us in our IRC chat room channel!

Address: irc.foreverchat.net

Channel: #dcemulation

If you are new to IRC chat, please read below for more information.

Introduction
The purpose of the following is to document ways to connect to the IRC channel--the chat room--using several popular clients.

IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat. IRC allows you to chat almost instantly with people all over the world. IRC uses networks, servers, and channels to get you to where you want to go. Our network consists of only one server, and it is located at irc.foreverchat.net. Other popular networks include efnet, freenode, and dalnet. Upon joining a network, you can join a channel by typing the command "/join #channel", without quotes and replacing #channel with your desired channel.

Connecting to DCEmulation IRC
To connect to our channel under any IRC client, type the following:

/server irc.foreverchat.net:6667

Wait until messages stop scrolling by in your client, then type

/join #dcemulation

It's that simple. After joining the channel, feel free to ask us for help in using IRC. To keep other people from registering your desired nickname, type the following:

/msg nickserv register password email

replacing password with your desired password and email with an email address where you can be contacted. When you connect, you will need to enter

/msg nickserv identify password

This proves that you are the owner of the nickname, and this is how you gain ops or voice in channels automatically. If someone else is using your desired nickname, or if you got disconnected and your nickname is still in the channel, you can type

/msg nickserv ghost nickname password

and that name will be disconnected.

Popular IRC Clients
IRC is a very old protocol, and therefore there are many clients you can use. Some clients are really good... and some are very bad. Rather than show you how to use each individually, we have provided links to tutorials made by other people on using these clients.

mIRC

mIRC is the most popular Windows IRC client. It can be obtained from mirc.com.

IRCBeginner.com has a pretty good tutorial showing how to connect this popular client to the Undernet IRC network. The only difference is in the Servers box you will need to click the add button, and put in irc.foreverchat.net:6667.

XChat

X-Chat is probably the second most popular IRC client out there, and it is widely used on Linux, *BSD, Unix, and Mac OS X systems. X-Chat is open source, so there are many versions of this client. The official build can be found at XChat.org. A very good unofficial Windows build can be found at Silverex.org. A universal binary of X-Chat Aqua for Mac OS X can be found at its sourceforge.net page.

XChat.org has a document that shows the basic functionality of the client.

Dreamcast PlanetWeb

Do you use your Dreamcast for internet access? If so, the PlanetWeb browser has an IRC client built-in! All you have to do is type pwchat://irc.foreverchat.net:6667/#dcemulation into the address bar.

Web Chat

Don't want to install anything? Are you on a public computer or are you at work or school? You can use the IRC @ Work website to get to the chat room. Put in your own Nickname and use irc.dcemulation.org as the Server and #dcemu as the Channel.

Other Guides and Closing Thoughts
If we don't have what you are looking for in this document, don't worry! IRCHelp.org has tons of guides that can help you which are probably much more complete than this one. This guide is in no way complete, nor will it ever be.

We hope that you have found this guide useful!

Thanks.

NOTICE THAT THE IRC SERVER HAS CHANGED. The old domains will connect to the new server, but you will need to reregister your nicks. Be sure to use a real email address to register, because it will email you with a passcode.

Bizzle takes xanax and robitussin and watches scrubs while he chats. this is what he does all day. That and talk about mac accessories. Zero makes up even more stupid drug stories to try and top bizzle but retires immediately to masturbate to pictures of his super hot sister (which can be found here: http://jb.dcemulation.org/irc/i~LuV~mY~ ... s~My~LiFe/ ). APE will then ramble about his shitty lifeless existence which consists of complaining about his mom, growing mushrooms from gerbil poop in a jar, and boisterous tales of "the time he drank everclear."

Aside from that, the channel is about %5 Dreamcast related support, 25% warez, ROMs, Copyrighted Music, SegaGen, illegal :ISOs, pirated movies, leaked emulator betas, cracks/keygens/serials, or any other form of pirated media, 25% arguments, 10% making fun of seans 'mid-core gamer review' blog, 15% telling elmer to fuck off, and 20% of me complaining about all of it.

IRC is internet boot camp. Only the few bravest, proudest, most elite assholes can come chat with us while still retaining the smallest bit of sanity.

Do you have what it takes? Join us today.
