I figure I'd call the topic that since my problem is probably insignifigant, and everybody can post their problems in here.

Anyway, here's my problem. I installed ChatZilla, and don't know how to connect to our site's chat. I read the chat page and couldn't find how to connect. Can anyone let me know how to do it?

I can't do it either. I just gave up rather than actually looking for a solution. I'm a quitter.

i get this error sometimes.....

java.net.ConnectException : Connection refused: connect


I googled it and it says its most likely because no one is listening on the selected port.
Sheep
Should be port 6667

When you get the server box, do "/server irc.freenode.net" then when its connected do "/join #igrandtheftauto" couldnt be easier smile.gif

Thank you so much, Sheep. It worked. TOO easy.

You mean like IRC applet (well, when it works properly and isn't blocked by a firewall or anything)?

No, I mean not having to download java to access a 5 person chat room.

Using the link I can't connect. Using mIRC I can connect to the server, but I can't join the channel. Any solutions? I'm a regular IRC user, so I don't think it's because I'm retarded. Although it is a possibility.

shouldn't java do that automatically :-/
Sheep
Should but apparently its not, or something is going wrong along the way... i'll ask Psy to check the config
Massacre
It finally worked for me last night (and of course, no one was on), but I don't know what I did differently, if anything.
Sheep
Seems to be set up correctly, we think it could be something to do with dodgy characters in your nick, or spaces, so if you cant get on, try doing "/nick anamethathasnospacesorspecialcharacters" and then "/join #igrandtheftauto" IRC doesnt like spaces you see...
Dragon Warrior
I'm on mirc and when I try to connect to irc.freenode.net the list command shows NO channels.

Also, the live chat widget is fucking up so fuck that.

Nevermind, I connected and lol there's 5 people in there.
Darth Sexy
Putting an underscore into my name has allowed me to use the java app. Shame no one is online.
TreeFitty
Used to be people.... unsure.gif
Qdeathstar
i'm always there..

iGTAbot
DiO
Ain't working for me. It was earlier when My name was DiO. I tried the "/nick changemyfuckingnamecauseofthedash" but I just get "[17:37] Error : Not connected "
Sheep
Try doing "/server irc.freenode.net" if it says not connected, but before that do "/nick somethingwithoutspaces"
Heartless
I can't connect. Should I be alarmed? Should I not panic?

Massacre
I get that sometimes. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and when it actually does work, no one's on...
Heartless
god dammit.
GLC
Ehhh...I usually enter the chat when I log on, stick around for about 10 mins doing ".quote" and ".gtafact" because no one is there, then get bored and leave.
DuffMan
I accidentally set my client to not connect to the chat so I haven't been on for the last few days without realising. I'm in other channels as well though so if you try and talk I probably won't see for a good while anyway.

Massacre
I third that. GLC and Duff were on today, but they don't like me...
Darth Sexy
No one is ever there when I am.
Heartless
Same. I'm on right now. Come play with me.
HB~Sauce
I downloaded X-Chat, which network do I connect to and how do I go from here?
Sheep
/server irc.freenode.net then do /join #igrandtheftauto
HB~Sauce
Okay, I can connect to freenode as a network and then irc.freenode.net on the second screen, but then it attempts to connect to chat.freenode.net (212.117.163.190) port 6667... then says "Connection failed. Error: An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket"

?
The Awesome One
I downloaded Java. Is there anything else I need? Cause I try it and it dont work.
