**********BEWARE**********, JoostinOnline now has powers
As you may know, if you have used that terribad client that pops up when you click you button-you wish you had something better. You may know of other programs, or you may not but all you know is you want to stop using that terrible button. This guide will tell you how to set up mIRC to connect to it, and to auto say a few commands on your connect. Please note mIRC is not free, you have to pay 20$ or you can use the free trial. The free trial expires in 30 days, and all that happens is that it slows down a bit. Two free clients that exist are Chatzilla, a firefox plugin that i may write a guide about later, and Trillian. Chatzilla is set up around the same steps, in this guide i give you almost all the information you will need to wing it if you wish to set up Chatzilla. If you wish to inquire about Trillian, talk to Joostin. This is also for thoose of you that do not believe you cannot connect to the IRC without using the webchat button. I will also go over creating a vHost below and registering.
Step One: Getting the Client.
Head on over to http://www.mirc.com/ but please note, this guide is written with the latest version (at the time) and I am registered. You may click continue at start-up and proceed, i do believe there is no difference in the set-up process.
Step Two: Enter your username
We are using irc.rizon.net, so theres a slim chance your username could be taken. Alright, after you register or click continue with the demo, a screen like this will show up. Of course, in the username spot you put your forum name so we know who you are. In the alternative, put an underscore incase your "ghost" is on and your not, so you can come on and talk and see when your ghost leaves. Both name and email are optional. Where it says server, under the email, it should be blank/ say something crazy. After you finish filling in the spot located by the red box, click where the yellow box is. We will be back to this later page later.
Step Three: Select the server
*Sever subject to change, i will try to fix this guide as soon as we recieve information of the new server* Thank you Bad_Ad84 for informing us of this.
Looking at this, find the find the Rizon folder pointed out by the red box ( if you cant find it, you can alternativly press "add" and type in "irc.rizon.net" for the server). Then click the button with the funny yellow box to select it. It will go back to the screen in step two, click on the button with the blue.
Step Four: Autoperform
For this step, i made you a nice animated picture. The picture is going to loop, so start when you see that page that first shows up when you click options. Press where the red boxes are, and after red press the blue. The giant red box means type what you see there.(where it says password, pick a password you would like to use, this will auto confirm it is your nick after you register, which we will go into details later. If you don't wish to register, then you can skip that line.) Be sure to select "perform on connection" or Nickserv will bug you when you register. the /j #hacksden is to join the channel automatically when you logon, no need to type it in everytime you login. ( i am sorry the animation is a bit fast, on the perform page it should say
Once again, i am sorry)
/msg nickserv identify yourpassword
Step Five: Actually Connecting
IF you have done everything alright, go back to the first button on the options tab to where you typed in your username. Click on the connect button, and Viola! were not done yet.
Step Six: Registering your Nick
Now, you should register your nick so that other poeple cannot use it. Registering also makes it so you can use a vHost, which will be the next step although that step will be optional. To register type
BE SURE YOU SUBSTITUTE THE YOUR EMAIL AND YOUR PASSWORD WITH THE REAL THING AND WITH VALID DATA! OR YOU WILL BE IN A BARREL OF FAIL! ALSO BE SURE TO USE THE SAME PASSWORD YOU PICKED ABOVE! Now, you will recieve an email from nickserv on the email you selected, with a confirmation code. When you get confirmation code , type in
/msg nickserv register YOURPASSWORD YOUREMAIL
once again, substitute CONFIRMATIONCODE with the one you recieve in your email, or nickserv will be yelling at you. Once all that's done, Nickserv will require you to identify everytime you login. If you set it up right, mIRC will auto identify for you, making there be no mess.
/msg nickserv confirm CONFIRMATIONCODE
Step Seven: Setting up a Vhost
What is a vHost you may ask? Simple, it will turn your IP adress after your name from a mess to a funny remakr if you wish. For example, mine was a 26 digit mess of numbers and letters. Now, mine is convienetly links.r.us. So, after my name it will say .
Let's get down to setting up a vHost with the rules. Heck, why don't i just give you the Rizon link on how to do it, double posting what it says will be a waste of my time IMO. Take a read here follow the rules while you make yours, and be sure you type it in correctly. After you type that in, you will get a Memo stating wheter or not your vHost was approved, it should take around an hour for you to get the message. After that, it will automatically be on and you won't ever have to worry about changing the perfom on the begining.
mIRC has a few options that i did not go over, but i do beleive you can click on the other options and press on little boxes for what you want changed. mIRC has an option to autojoin channels when you are kicked, that is the biggest thing i would recomend you pick because of
THIS IS NOT THE PLACE TO ASK FOR mIRC FOR FREE OR FOR HELP ON INSTALLING IT. THE BEST PLACE TO ASK FOR HELP ON INSTALLING IT WOULD BE mirc.com . IF YOU CANNOT CONNECT TO irc.rizon.net AND YOU GET BANNED WHEN YOU ATTEMPT TO, DO NOT ASK HERE, THEiR FORUM WILL BE THE BEST PLACE. ALL HACKSDEN CONTROLS IS #hacksden , RIZON CONTROLS EVERYTHING ELSE! WE (hacksden) IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANYTHING THAT mIRC DOES TO YOUR COMPUTER, OR THE PR0N LINKS THAT YOU MAY GET IF YOU JOIN ANY OTHER CHANNEL THAN #hacksden . I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY RICKROLLS THAT I LINK YOU THAT YOU MAY CLICK ON OR WHEN I FEEL LIKE ITS PERFECT TO QUOTE A FEW LINES OF THE SONG.
