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.

The Armabot

There's a bot there that gives some additional features. For a list of stuff, type:

  1. list

Then, for example for the Weather module, do:

  1. 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.

/query armabot

  1. register

The bot will walk you through the rest.

After you've registered, you can leave a note for another registered user like this:

  1. 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:

  1. notes

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!
