    okay I downloaded mirc i have connected to irc.galaxy.org I've gone to #smr-movies Realm and all that, I don't know what an fserver is and while I am in smr I ask people what do I do to download dream catcher they tell me go to smr info when I type this nothing happened and I downloaded smrpatch thing and when I unzip it the command tells me something that doesn't make any sense I just wanna do this! and one forum made it sound easy and it's not.please someone give me exact directions cause I think people leave out some things that I need to know to do this

    Im assuming you're trying to download files, the best way to find what you need is o go to an outside website on which you can search for files in the same way you would on kazaa. I use www.packetnews.com. After finding what you need, look up the user name (it'll be on the same page and should be very easy to find) and the packet number and you have to use and XDCC get command to retrieve the file. an example is /msg *user name* xdcc send #*packet number*

    I seen another discussion on afterdawn where someone had given another person directions to download movies off mirc and from these directions I've been trying but it is so confusing another person I spoke with in the smr chat had given me directios to go to smr-info, and I type that in while in mirc nothing happeneds and then I found this site for smr but there are no directions for me to download the movies off mirc or anything like that..the directions on how to search on mirc were alright but no one said once your in smr chat then what

    i have used mirc for about a month, and am slowly learning.
    once in the smr room, enter
    !list
    this will list all the ops sharing files
    alternativly, enter
    @find dream catcher
    this will list all users sharing the dream catcher file
    you will then will have to link up to collect the file. some users use odd names with non standard names. to copy the name, highlight them with the cursor. (copy command is not needed) you can then paste it to a command line.
    there are 2 ways of linking to get a file. one is mentioned by liquid. the other, which is easier is as follows (assumes phlox is the user who has the file)
    /ctcp phlox!files
    once in the files, click on the item displayed, such as a directory called 'movies'
    by default the command line will show 'cd movies' select enter.
    navigate through anyother directory, until the file is displayed. click on the file. on the command line a get... command is displayed. select enter to confirm it.
    you are then either sent the file straight away, or placed in queue. the window link will close after 30 seconds, but your queued item (if sucessfull) will be downloaded shortly.
    unfortunatly, it is all about trial and error.
    somethings work in one room, and are banned in another.
    i downloaded both parts of dream catcher from saltek a week or so back.

    you gotta be real careful going in a channel and just typing !list. i've seen people banned and even klined for that. the best thing to do in any channel is to type !rules before you do anything else, then you'll get a list of rules that the channel allows or does not allow, this can also be seen in the channel header sometimes. I've been using IRC for about 8 years now, seen alot of weird stuff, slot of wonderful stuff too. if you need help, PM me.

    How do I change servers?-For example I read a post that said they used irc.galaxy.org-Well I tried to put that in under File,Options, Local Info, and then in the Local Host box, but this does not work. Because then when I try to enter a channel such as #smr-movies Realm (i think that is correct, if not tell me the righit channel name please) and when i get into that channel there isn't anyone in it so i am thinking i am not in the rght server or something-please help me, thank you very much whoever replies

    to change servers you simply need to enter this command - /server irc.whateverserveryouwant.net (of course you'll need the server name)

    please dont mention what you are getting, as it could be viewed as discussing piracy. try packetnews.com - all kinds of servers listed, and the channels on those servers, and the packs being offered in those channels.

    to change servers, i do a manual disconnect by clicking over the 'file' and cancel connection button. i then select 'open' then either select my next destination and use the connect buton, or create a new entry before connecting via the connect button. i do not put the new room name in, but list them before entry.
    ______________________________________________

    try the following irc's that i use
    irc.eu.irchighway.net
    irc.ircgalaxynet - note the 'irc' is part of the name, and you are connecting to an irc type device, so you have to put it in twice.
    irc.saltek.net <general films>
    irc.cyber2k.net <mainly sci-fi>
    irc.criten.net <mainly films>
    irc.efnet.net <mainly sci-fi>
    irc.galaxynet.org <films>
    irc.torrent.net <bit torrent dominated sites>
    ______________________________________________

    i connect to the main irc site, then enter
    /list
    for a list of sites, select the one i am interested in and then left click the mouse, and select join to enter my desired location.
    _______________________________________________

    obviously, do not connect to any illegal sites, which infringe copyright material....

    i also highly recommend using the exursion script for IRC. it has a nice multi network feature that allows connections to multiple networks, plus it has an anti-spam feature, and nice war toys (if you're into that kinda thing, please do not ask me about the war stuff, as i will not respond. dont mess with it till you been in IRC for a year or to, or you're liable to get owned). excursion is available at www.excursion.cjb.net

    ok if it was an xdcc bot you need to look in the channel aound the packs that you are seeing, look for the add for that bot, it will say something like this -
    2 packs**0 of 5 slots open, Queue:4/20 Record 678.4KB/s
    To request file type:"/msg xx|00043 xdcc send #x" -- you want to replace that #x with the pack # you want like #2 or #1. there are other bots that use the ctcp syntax, therefore the command would be /ctcp xx|00043 xdcc send #1 --- most of the time when the bots lists in the channel, the syntax for requesting a file from that bot will be at the top of his list. and the ctcp bots usually have there syntax and queue info at the bottom of their list. it takes a while and it's kinda overwhelming at first, but you'll get it.
