There are a couple of ways to get to our chatroom #lexxtalk on irc.fef.net.  If you don’t want to use the java chat portal that we have and you are using a windows based computer you can use a program called mirc.  You can download this program at http://www.mirc.com and install it.  Once it’s installed, then go through the following steps to get yourself set up with a nick and the chatroom server.  Here are some pictures and instructions on how to get yourself set up and ready to chat!  When you open the mirc program it may ask you to continue, just click on continue and follow the next steps.  Mirc gives you a free 30 day trial, but as long as you keep clicking on continue, you can use mirc forever for free.

 

After you install mirc, you want to find the mirc options box, and the best way to find it is to click on file then select server, and the mirc options box will pop up (or you may find it under file and options).  When it does, click on the connect category to set up your nickname:

 



 

Under full name you can put anything you want, as also in the email field.   In the nickname field put your normal chat nickname and in the alternative and alternate nickname.  After you have filled in those fields look back to the left column, you’re still in the mirc options box, click on Servers and the screen will appear like this:

 





 

Under IRC network is a drop down arrow, click on that and look for the server called FefNet, when you find it, click on that and your mirc options will look like the picture above.  Now you’re ready to chat.  Just click on connect to server and it will connect you to the chat server.  Once you are on the chat server type /join #lexxtalk (the slash key must be in front of the word join) and hit enter and you’ll be in the chat room!  Now that you've set up the  chat program, the information for the chatserver and your nickname will be in for the next time you use the program.  Next time you open it, just always click on continue, and connect to the server and type /join #lexxtalk to join the room there after.  
 

If you have a Mac computer, you can still use the java chat program, there is also an irc program called ircle at http://www.ircle.com/  I am not familiar with this program, so you’d have to follow the site’s help guide.  Another program called Xchat will work both for windows and Mac based computers available at http://www.xchat.org/  right on the site they have a quick start guide that is very simple and takes you through the steps on how to set up your nick, the irc server and how to join the channel.  The Fefnet server is already pre-built into Xchat’s list of servers.  After you connect to the server Xchat will have a pop up box and you click on join this channel and type in the box #lexxtalk and click on OK and it will bring you right into the room.  I believe that Xchat gives you a free 30 day trial, but if you uninstall it after 30 days and redownload it,  you should be able to keep on using it.

aww, did you try the java portal on the right, the chat button? if you saw an @ in front of names, you were in a chat room, and we were all talking.

You don't need to d/l it, just hit the chat room button and it takes you to the chat room, we'll also have a log up later of the chat.

In a day or so we'll have the transcript up of the chat and you can read it there..so you won't feel left out and if you want you can experiment later with the chat portals and see if you can find your way in..Angel has a thread about it somewhere around here that maybe can help you..

Hope to chat with you soon..

LOL, Ketana, the help for chat programs is in this thread if you read up... :c030a::s010a:  The chat transcript is up.  I would suggest using Mirc, and following the pictured instructions up above to get to a chatroom.  Mirc is much more stable and a great program.

Lexxcast was only for the celeb chat. Lexxtalk is the normal channel we use for chats.

OK, I see this threads been going for a while, so I may be a bit late, but can anyone help me?

 

I've been using Irc for some time now, but still can't seem to get into the lexx room.

Is it still there or am I just doing something wrong?

Bearing in mind, Ive been mIrc for a long time, can someone post up step by step instructions for me?

Or just let e know if its still there? Cheerz

Please look at the very first post of this thread on page one, it has the instructions on how to load up mirc, plus the server name and name of the chatroom and how to get there.

Yeah, I see that but Im not sure how to do it without losing the page I use most often, It took me long enough to find that!

would I be able to change the server and room, and set it to log me into both automatically?

I'm currently logged into the java client, and maybe will be for a while, if anyone can help me with any questions, could they please log in and help me, Thanx!

If you're currently logged into the chatroom via the java chat client, there's a guy in there named peace marauder and he can help you, he's usually around...and I can email him asking him to pop into the room to help ya out.

what are you trying to do exactly?  What "page" are you talking about?  If you can define what you want to accomplish I or somebody can tell you how to do it.  If you want mirc to automatically log on to a server and open the lexxtalk window, that can be done.  Also you prob can open several rooms or chat windows, provided they are all on the same server.  If you trying to get mirc to log on to two servers at once i dont think it will do that.  YOu can however open two separate mirc applications and join  separate server if you want "both" but i dont understand what you are trying to do.  And i dont understand what you mean by "losing the page" what page?

Just rephrase what you want and somebody here can give step by step procedures, for someone who has used mirc before like you say.:)  I gather though you have success now, so if you need fine tuning beyond that, ask away!

DOH!  actually you can join all the servers you want, i just learned something...LOL
