Is there some software I need to DL to get to the chat? I click on the "I want to talk the Bros" link and it wants to save or open a .php file. It won't open because my PC doesn't know what program to open it with.
I searched for a program but haven't found what it takes.
Thanks JD, but that is the major problem.....I don't see irc.rcgroups.com listed ANYWHERE to choose as a server.......all I have listed is the usual EFnet servers and crap........... Can't find anywhere to enter the address of the rc groups server either...... oh well......
Billy if you want I can donate a free PHP webased chat client for you and host it. This way you don't have to use RCGroups chat client and it will be proprietary for ProBros only, just 1 room. Guarantee it will work everytime too! Or we can just have it at the OMP chat room if you would like too. We could have an emergency chat nite tomorrow nite due to the problems.
I'm not Billy, but I live in Nashville if that counts... LOL
We NEED a new meeting place for the chats, that is for sure. Most of the guys, including myself, have a bear of a time with mIRC, and a nice easy web based chat room would be great. I finally got on IRC, but I either missed everyone, or they didn't show up.
I would be happy with a new chatroom, but let's see what the masses want.
Yeah I missed you guys evidently........It had been ages since I had used IRC, and by the time I got it all sorted out, it was late.
mIRC does work decently, and I used it for years, but it would be FAR easier for all of the Bros if we had a nice "point-and-click" site to gather for the chats. We usually have 15 things going on at once, and the added complications of setting up, and using IRC puts my old brain into thermal meltdown... LOL
I like my chatrooms like my women.......quick, and easy !!
My favorite part is when you register you do not have to get an email back and it will automatically input your username automatically into the login after you register. Can't get any easier then that!
Dudes RCgroups upgraded their forums software while doing so it sorta broke the chat client a lil. It will be a lil till they get around to fixing it as the forums come first. But now there will be a chat client running ON the probro site direct for all the probro members to use that will connect to the IRC server so those who use MIRC can chat also.
The OMP chat is webbased and not an irc server so those who use irc clients like MIRC can not connect to it (Quite lame) and untill BillyHell states otherwise the official chat is still on the rcgroups server.
So as soon as Billyhell changes the code for the live chat we will have working chat on an irc server again.
While I agree that Mirc/Irc is the way to go, many ProBros are not versed in IRC chat. A web-based chat is what many of them use to log on (and is what gave so many of them a hard time getting logged on, but I digress...) and is obviously good enough for most. I would like to see a true IRC set up with a web-based option for those who are not Mirc versed, sure. But I think it was dang nice of Team OMP to set something up on such short notice to get the bros through until the bugs can be worked out. FWIW, I connected just fine on the irc.rcgroups server using Mirc, but the guys who have been using the RCGroups client were just lost.
