We have an irc channel on freenode that gets some traffic. There's a fair amount of development talk there, but there's plenty more to be had.
Joining the IRC Channel
Pick your favorite irc client and connect to freenode. You can connect to irc.freenode.net, then join #armagetron using the command "/join armagetron"
Once there, you'll find plenty to talk about, I'm sure.
There's a bot there that gives some additional features. For a list of stuff, type:
Then, for example for the Weather module, do:
- list Weather
This combination will register you as a user of the bot and give you access to more features, such as notes left to other users.
The bot will walk you through the rest.
After you've registered, you can leave a note for another registered user like this:
- tell Lucifer_arma You're a prick
When the other user checks his notes, he'll see it. Of course, to check your notes, you just do:
You can also get RSS feeds, math calculations and conversions, coin-flipping, and other neat things. It's intended that we'll provide a module to query servers and see who's playing where, but that's not yet implemented.
So have fun with it!
