Question

Ok, this is a real simple question, and I'm sure the answer is painfully obvious.

I can't seem to join any irc channels. Not just #planetunreal, but *anything*. Could I be connecting to the wrong server? I've tried various default channels, as well as the /join command. Whenever I type, I get a "### not in channel!" message.

Thoughts?

Ummmm.... not to insult you, but have you connected first? You are on irc.gameslink.net, right?

Just hit the little "connect" button, gameslink is the default connection.

Hey Smallberries. I posted a similar thread in troubleshooting. I am waiting for an answer. If I find anything out, I will let you know. [img]/~unreal/ubb/html/smile.gif[/img]

After you have connected (if using the UT chat) your see a box with a drop down with channels such as #utmods etc you can either high light one of those and join it or highlight it/ backspace/ type in #planetunreal (dont forget the #)
if already on a server type /join #planetunreal this can be typed in a room or not.

the command to join any channel is /join

hope this makes sense and helps

Got a reply from Rooster on my problem. He said the apostrophe in my name is giving IRC indigestion. Maybe the period in your name does the same thing. ???

it is very picky about names, I used to have a 0 in my name but I had to switch to O instead. Also I can never connect to a channel unless I have a default channel it joins automatcially upon connect. Though this is within UT I dunno if you guys are using MIRC.

Yep, my friend has the same problem

He was using 'FW for clan tag, and he couldn't get in any channels, on get private message

the prob was the '

Watchout when using unusual character. You must change it in player setup, not only do /nick in IRC.

I do know ` to work (same key than the console on english keyb, but you you don't press shift)

Thumbs up

That would appear to be the problem (thanks again for the email, Rooster). And thanks for all the other replies, folks. Always nice to get a quick answer.

Whew, glad I'm not the only person who experienced this. [img]/~unreal/ubb/html/smile.gif[/img]

IRC doesn't like it when you have numbers starting out your nick as well.

I'll give you one guess how I found that out

heh
