I was interested to find out, that iO has an IRC channel on Gamesurge, so I decided to make a post here.
The channel (once again) is on the Gamesurge server, and the channel is #iOGaming. I identify myself as [iO.PubTF2]Syntak so people know that I am in iO, and I am from the public TF2 server.
There are two ways you can connect to our IRC chat room:
Download mIRC @ http://www.download.com/mIRC/3000-21...dlPid=10764664
Once you get it up and running, you will click File -> Select Server -> Gamesurge and click connect
Once you are connected to gamesurge, you can type /nick (desired name) to rename yourself, and then type /join #iOGaming to get into the channel.
The second way is to go to www.gamesurge.net/chat and use the java applet to connect, then follow the same steps after connected to get into the channel.
Things you should know:
When you connect to IRC, your IP address is public. To hide your IP address, Type: //mode $me +x and it will hide your IP address. To have this automatically done, add it into your preform.
mIRC looks pretty ugly, and lacks a lot of features, so I use something named "no name script" You can get it at http://www.nnscript.com/ make sure to follow the installation instructions!
