In this post I am going to explain how to install mIRC in FreeBSD with Gnome, using WINE.

okay, first things first – If you havent got WINE we need to get that..

Applications > Accessories > terminal

pkg_add -r wine

Wait until it has downloaded all the file (will bring up a prompt when it is done)

Please DONT close the terminal, if you already have then open it up again..

Then go to http://www.mirc.com/ and download the exe file.

Once you have got it, go to the directory where it saved in your terminal (with the “cd” command eg. cd /usr/home/niall/downloads )

then type “wine <mIRCname>” replacing <mIRCname> with the name of the .exe file Including .exe at the end!

Okay, now it should bring up a set up file, set it up like you would in windows and you will find that the mIRC icon will appear on your desktop.

The only bug i have in this is sometimes if you are in multiple channels the names on the right hand side dont change.. Sorry about this >.>

Anyway. Happy Chatting!!

Okay, so the past two days – as well as enjoying Windows 7 I have been working with MollieD staff and Admins to make MollieD run more smoothly and we have added some more commands.. but while these have been helping with this, I have been making a Website for MollieD..

You can find MollieD’s website at http://mollied.iniall95.co.uk ( Or by clicking MollieD in the navbar on this site ) and the website will provide things like a bot request form, bot cmds list, bot Terms of Service, bot staff list etc.

Soon there will also be a staff section for MollieD staff and admins – So staff must look for that =)

Thanks,

Okay.. in this blog post I will be showing you some basic IRC commands for use in the Wyldryde IRC server, I do not provide support for any of this but I am sharing this to help people.. If you get stuck on it, please connect and join #help

ALL THINGS IN {THESE BRACKETS} ARE DYNAMIC THINGS THAT YOU HAVE TO CHANGE DEPENDING ON THE COMMAND.. FOR EXAMPLE “{channel name}” WILL BE REPLACED (WITHOUT THE BRACKETS) WITH THE CHANNEL NAME ( EG. #NIALL ) AND SO ON…

Change a Mode: /mode {channel name/nick} {mode command}

Join a Channel: /join {channel name}

Change your Nick: /nick {nickname here}

Register your Nick: /ns register {password} {email}

Identify yourself (Log In): /ns identify {password}

Group Multiple nicknames to one nick: /ns group {main nick} {password for main nick}

Register a Channel/Chat room: /cs register {channel name} {chanserv password} {channel description}

Identify to ChanServ: /cs identify {channel name} {chanserv password}

Assign a services bot to your channel: /bs assign {channel name} {bot name}

Assign a channel Welcome message: /cs set {channel name} entrymsg {chosen Welcome message}

Okay, In this next bit I am going to talking about Fantasy Commands.. these can only be used if you have a Wyldryde Services bot.. (Shown above how to assign one)

Add an “aop” (Operator): !aop add {nick}
Add an “sop” (Senior Operator): !sop add {nick}
Add an “hop” (Half Operator): !hop add {nick}
Add an “vop” (Voice Operator): !vop add {nick}

To list the “aop”s “sop”s “hop”s and “vops” use the same ! command line but do it like this:

!{aop/sop/hop/vop} list

And the bot should display a list to you (of that specified group)

Now I am going to talk about the “!topic” command, simple as it seems “!topic” changes the topic but it is the fastest way to do it (Unless your client allows you to do it there and then)

Lets take an example. Say I wanted to change the topic to “Hi Guys”.. I could either write “!topic Hi Guys” or I could use a ChanServ command ( /cs topic {channel name} Hi Guys ).. to be honest I would rather do the “!topic” Command

That in all is an advantage of having a Wyldryde services bot.. but remember, every fantasy command has a Chanserv alternative so you dont NEED a Wyldryde services bot, although it is Advised..

Well, at the moment that is all I can think of to share with you, If you need any help with the commands you can always join my chat room at http://www.iniall95.co.uk/chatroom.php and I am happy to help =).. otherwise ask in #help by going to that page and using the Join command with the channel name “#help”
