View Full Version : The transistion to irc.

The hype has been growing amongst the jk1 community. A lot of us have moved from the zone to the magic world of IRC ( http://www.mirc.com )

For about a month we have been creating a clan which basically has selected the top names from jk1 and assembled a team for jk2.

Such names as

Alchemist
Nighthawk
Genetix
Mat
Fuzzy
Dexcro
Monk3y
Pyrot3chnic

and several others to be added after launch.

This clan should pose to be excellent competition for the jedi knight ii community as well as the ladders/tournaments and such.

Only a small fraction of the JK community resides on IRC. With the release of jkii coming soon, and its similarities to other games such as quake iii, we should aim to change this. Scheduling such things as matches and/or scrims are way too difficult on the zone, IRC makes it so much easier for both parties. The quake 3 gaming community (which I and many others in this clan have been a part of) uses IRC as its main means of communication. Such clans as IRN, DSBR, and of course Deviant have made the transition to IRC. Talk to one of them about its use or hit us with any questions you may have. Trust me, its worth the change and will help to make this community as strong as the Q3, CS and UT communities have proven to be.

Thanks for your time,

Too bad you have to pay for MIRC after a 30 day period i believe...unless you have a hack you'd like to share for us. Forums work just as well.

http://www.mirc.com/register.html

it says "mIRC can be registered easily online, by fax or by postal mail. Please see below to find out how. If you haven't used mIRC yet, please download it and try it out first. mIRC can be used legally for up to 30 days before it needs to be registered."

I hasn't been 30days for me yet but still...

If i could be on 3 (is it possible? I'm kinda a IRC newb)

DgD (my T2 clan)
enterthegame #jediknight
gamesnet #jediknight

i'll be switching between the 2

with the new irc you can be on 2 at once...


go to connect, make sure you click OPEN NEW SERVER WINDOW and connect to the 2nd server from within the first.


Kill two birds with once stone that way :)

this post should be reversed, its a transition of fps players(who use irc) into Jedi Outcast

since jk1 didn't have dedicated servers it didn't become very popular. the peer to peer didn't allow it

JO will be different, no need to advertise, this game is going to blow up :)

of course there is, there are thousands of people who have no idea what irc is. The zone is their main means of game communication.....the problem is whether or not they use this board lol.

you managed to copy and paste chat from a channel of a clan. Your point being that we goof around and have fun with our friends?



I am glad your "usetehforce" cronies have nothing better to do than to sit and observe us and learn from us on how to conduct a channel. Wow I feel like this is Jedi Knight all over again and you are begging me for lessons.

I have not played JK for a year (and not intensily since it died in 99). Over spring break I came back to check over some old message boards and to my surprise I found several new clans like JNO, JK, FH, FES, and several other clans boasting good sizable clans, good webpages, several unified mature members, and the right mentality. I have a feeling...

As far as clans? clans are lame, always have been always will be.

bartolo the only good jcs squad was in place before you were ever a twinkle in eye of jcs. your squad is full of newbies. you are a newbie. you sucked at the game and lived off the rep of the old jcs. thats just as sad as legacy claiming to be honorable.

maybe a little civility is the key here... cool off guys, well, at least take the clan wars to the clan boards...

anyway, i will be reletivly new to IRC myself, as i havent used it much in the past... but from the sounds of it its better/easier to use than the zone's chat feature?

Let me know who's charging for mIRC. I'll go into business with him selling swamp land in Florida.

dev-logan *cough* I mean g3netix. We are here to contribute to the JK2 community and help it become a more exciting and fun place for everybody. I suggest you and your clan try to achieve a similar goal. This is a good time to come together as a community and make friends NOT throw around personal insults.

That chat transcript reminds me of the main Nar Shaddaa chat room on the zone. A bunch of fools sitting around acting like 12-year-olds whose idea of fun it is to insult and degrade others(not to mention each other) and to think(in an extremely vocal way) that they are better than everyone else. I won't play in a place like that if I can help it. Hopefully, since Jedi Outcast will be a new center of zone activity for a while, the sysops will be taking out the trash more regularly than with the old Jedi Knight rooms.

#Nar is the largest JK channel for "elite" guys and "flaming racism" and I assure you #Nar will have the same JK players in it five years from now.

These channels support the JK2 community:

#usetheforce
#jediknight

These channels are the JK2 community:

#JediKnight
#UseTheForce
#ProvingGrounds
#JK][
#clan-Lotd
#clan-ge

And JK clans who are making a peaceful transition into the JK2 community. :) We are very apreciative to all your help and support.

#Nar has been trying to transpose "eliteness" from the JK community onto the JK2 community. We are here to abolish any such idea that the JK community has any rights to the JK2 community. The JK clan alliance: DSbr, DH, IRN, and JaG have been attempting to transpose themselves as the REAL jk2 community. Keep trying, It will never happen. The JK2 community does not stand for the spirit of...

and neither do we.

and many more JK2 chat rooms, leagues, tournaments, and clans that comprise the mIRC JK2 community would like to welcome anybody to come and visit our channels and to support your JK2 community on mIRC. I want to thank the staff of JediKnightii.net for letting us advertise on their site - We apreciate your help and we would like to serve the JK2 community in any way we can to help make it a more exciting, dynamic, and fun experience for everybody.

In the words of "Charlie" a high roller in your channel

bartolo, like i said there was 1 good version of jcs. the rest are wannabes that is a makeup of people that werent any good that are living off the success of what i consider a different clan with the same name. if your new version of the old clan jcs doesnt like me i could care less because i highly doubt our clan will see yours in any competition, and if we do big deal because i will state again for those that have never seen me type this out... "i do not care about people i dont know or like, i dont pretend to be nice to people that i dont like or cant stand just for the fact that its the internet, i didnt do it in jk i dont do it in q3 and i wont do it in jk2 or any other games i play its just stupid and gay to be like you idiots"

#nar, #deviant will be two of the biggest channels. Legacy is what you call a leftover scumbag from JK1. He was never accepted by the elites because he was a fagit. He wants to be an elite, he's just jealous and you will all see that in a matter of time. Just like everyone else has before.

After seeing the effectiveness of irc within in the q3 community which i come from i thought it to be a good place to start to see whether jk2 multiplayer could take over the time i spend online as q3 once did. First signs were good, community seemed eager in most chans i went into (those listed) to help people with technical problems etc. With the prospect of adsl just over the horizon i was thinkin that my q3 days were coming to an end and with it a new start in jk2.

Anyway i connected to the network earlier and after around an hour id been pmed by a few ops asking if i was pming people in the chan (which i wasnt) and then kick banned from two chans (again listed on this thread) after being accused of being a WD/dsbr. I had no idea of what either meant although have been informed WD = warez distributor. This is something im not so im left with dsbr, not been able to work this one out yet. What i have done whilst connected to the network is try to get a feel for how the jk2 irc community differs from q3 and to help people whenever i could do. If id acted in a manner the ops didnt see fit i can understand but the response was to accuse me of something i dont even understand and then not explain it fully. Another side point is that its fairly obvious some of those in the channels are using warez versions of the game yet have no hassle from the ops.

For jk2 to enjoy the success it deserves the community has got to be a lot more welcoming and look to explain stuff to those new to it. Again if jk2 is to do well irc is almost essential in my eyes, with ops acting in such a manner things dont look that bright. This is not to say all jk2 irc chans have been like this, others ive idled in have given me hope that with some time things will sort themselves out.

Id hoped my first post would be more positive but im sat here frustrated and unsure of exactly what ive done wrong.

If someone could explain why ive been banned id be v.grateful
