Browser-based:http://webchat.quakenet.org/ (channel = gb_gaming_hub)
Or you can download mIRC and connect through it. Much better that the browser one!
mIRC:Here's a neat tutorial created by Swoxx who also created and is maintaining the chatroom!
Method 2 - (Proper IRC clientStep 1: Go to http://www.mirc.com/ and download the software. (Note: there are several other applications for running IRC available, such as Trillian. I’ll be using the classic mIRC client for this tutorial but the steps should hold true for most clients)
Step 2: Install the application
Step 3: Enter a username and an alternative username*. Then press OK.
*This is for when you’re connected on multiple devices at the same time or when you crash/disconnect and your previous connection has yet to terminate (such as your nick is still showing in the channel when you reconnect)
Step 4: type the following into the chatbox: “/server irc.quakenet.org -j #GB_Gaming_Hub” (without quotations) This will directly connect you to the correct network and dump you into our channel.
This is what it should look like by now if you’re using the standard version of mIRC for Windows, and you should be ready to to find some duders to play with.
Step 5: (OPTIONAL) If you want to be sure to retain your username you can register with the network.
To do this, connect to quakenet as shown in step 4 (irc.quakenet.org) then type “/msg Q Hello <email> <emailagain>”. Since this step is optional I wont go into detail.
“/msg Q showcommands” is enough to get help, should you need more help, feel free to PM me.
