    Gamesnet recently became Gamesurge and this has caused some problems with the ingame IRC client and the applet on the main site. Basically, you'll have great problems connecting to the official IRC channel from form either one of them.

    So, for all you frustrated people out there who would like to use the ingame IRC client, here's the fix : Go to your Unreal Tournament\System-folder. Locate the file called Infiltration.ini and open it in Wordpad or similar. Somewhere between the middle and the bottom of that huge text document you'll find a few lines that looks like this :

    [INF_Menu.INF_MenuIRCSystemWin]
    NickName=Almost.
    FullName=INFPlayer
    OldPlayerName=Almost
    IRCServerHistory[0]=irc.gamesnet.net
    IRCServerHistory[1]=
    IRCServerHistory[2]=
    IRCServerHistory[3]=
    IRCServerHistory[4]=
    IRCServerHistory[5]=
    IRCServerHistory[6]=
    IRCServerHistory[7]=
    IRCServerHistory[8]=
    IRCServerHistory[9]=
    IRCChannelHistory[0]=#Infiltration
    IRCChannelHistory[1]=
    IRCChannelHistory[2]=
    ...and so on.

    What you need to do is add the new IRC server, irc.gamesurge.net. It should look like this :

    [INF_Menu.INF_MenuIRCSystemWin]
    NickName=Almost.
    FullName=INFPlayer
    OldPlayerName=Almost
    IRCServerHistory[0]=irc.gamesnet.net
    IRCServerHistory[1]=irc.gamesurge.net
    IRCServerHistory[2]=
    IRCServerHistory[3]=
    IRCServerHistory[4]=
    IRCServerHistory[5]=
    IRCServerHistory[6]=
    IRCServerHistory[7]=
    IRCServerHistory[8]=
    IRCServerHistory[9]=
    IRCChannelHistory[0]=#Infiltration
    IRCChannelHistory[1]=
    IRCChannelHistory[2]=

    ...but with your nicks, of course ;)

    And that's it! Next time you open the ingame IRC client you'll find the new server there and you'll be able to connect to the IRC channel. Yes, I know. 99,9 percent of the people here knows how to do this. This post is to help those who don't.

    And of course, there's the IRC applet on the Infiltration main site. It's pretty messed up. Until our webmaster finds a way to fix this problem I guess the ingame client or an "independant" client is the way to go.

    On behalf of the INF dev team I would like to apologize for any inconvenience this issue might have caused. Unfortunately, a change like this is beyond anyones control. All we can do is change with it :)

    For the record, the official IRC channel is still #infiltration. See you there.

    Eh, no it's not stickied Keg :p. Don't bother, though, I'll put it in the common problems thread in troubleshooting. Thanks for the heads-up, Almost :).
