mIRC Guide / Walkthrough
This mIRC Guide will guide you into downloading, installing and using mIRC to chat in channels on servers.
Let’s Get Started:
The first thing you want to do is go and download mIRC. I suggest going to their website and downloading the newest version. Once you have downloaded the file, run the setup program.
Just click next to get to the next screen
Now that you installed mIRC, this Guide will continue with getting it up and running.
Open mIRC by using the desktop icon or a start menu icon.
Simply close the About mIRC box, and now you’re ready to use mIRC!
After closing the About box, a new box will popup, the Options Box.
Now that we got mIRC installed, and running, it is now time to configure it!
You will see this screen:
You’ll also need to fill in these fields:
The [a] at the end of my nick allows time for my current nick to get disconnected
Now, you want to go to the IdentD tap and you will be faced with a screen like this:
Usually, this will already be filled out for you, but just in case you want to check it.
Click OK to close this menu.
Now, I’ll explain the buttons:
Right now, there are only three buttons that you need to know about:
Connecting to the Server:
ServerType in the chat bar, in the Status window: /server irc.SolidIRC.com
This will connect you to our server. You type /join #Magic-League after you saw a whole lot of text going by and you will be in the League Room!
Changing NickAt any time, if you choose to change your nick (for a mini perhaps), use this format /nick Name
For me it’s /nick [0SagaBegins
You are now ready to start playing Magic through mIRC! But..for those of you who want to know more…please continue to read this guide!
Other Useful Info:
You may want to know how to private message somebody and SLAP them!
The colors in mIRC annoy me. Do they annoy you also? If so, then you may want to go ahead and change those colors to something that you prefer!
Have you noticed that a lot of people have their own quit message? Don’t you want your own too? Well, now you can!
Registering Your Nick
On the SolidIRC server, you have the ability to register your nickname so nobody else can use it. To register your nickname, type: /msg NickServ REGISTER password e-mail. Keep the password to yourself and make sure the e-mail address is valid (you’ll have to pick up a verification code in your e-mail after registering). Once you enter in the verification code from your e-mail, the nick is fully registered. You can now ghost other users on your nick by typing /msg NickServ GHOST your_nick password.
To set up your mIRC to auto-identify, bring up your mIRC options window. Click on the perform button and enter in: /msg NickServ IDENTIFY your_password. Make sure that you are on the correct nick while joining and that the “Enable perform on connect” box is checked. You can also add in the join channel commands on separate lines to auto-join channels upon connecting to the server.
