How to join the IRC channel
(I presume you are using Mozilla Firefox, because this works on it, I don't know about other browsers)

1. You need an IRC client.
1a.To get an IRC Firefox plug-in called Chatzilla, click this link. http://www.hacksrus.com/~ginda/chatzill ... 0.9.77.xpi
Install it, and restart Firefox(or any other browser that lets you use Chatzilla).
1b. You could also download mIRC, if you don't have any browser that would let you use ChatZilla. http://www.mirc.co.uk/get.html
2. Click this link: irc://irc.maxgaming.net/determinance


Or you could just launch your irc client, type /server irc.maxgaming.net, and when it is connected, /join #determinance.

If you're new to irc, change nick by typing /nick <the nick you want to use>. Also, you can use some other commands with /, for example "/away Playing Determinance" or /back. (by typing /away playing determinance, other people will se you're away, and by typing "/whois <your nick>" they can see that message you have wrote after /away command.)
Heck, you can use /help and /commands to see them.

Also, you might want to register your nick to prevent other people from using it. (You could also ask NickServ for help.)
To register, type(in determinances channel or in the server tab) "/msg NickServ REGISTER <password> <e-mail>". Then follow NickServs instructions.
(it takes some time to receive the e-mail)

Have fun chatting!
(anything that is inside < and > symbols means variables which Icannot know)

By the way, if you click CHAT in Determinances main menu, yo uwill join the irc channel.

Do we have to use irc.maxgaming.net, it's just I can't really use it that much, as I'm usually on GameSurge. Why not just use GameSurge?

It has plenty of users and the Srvx system it uses is far superior to nickserv and so on.

Plus it means me, kenthebear and everybody can get on it again.

Mikeh man, there are about 8 guys who use maxgaming regularly. Set me up the dt channel on gamesurge and I'll run both, and tell me the address.
