Description HeX_Vulture 2014-05-11 23:49:01 CDT
Internet Relay Chat in Odalaunch. Benefits for this include live tech support and a means of finding players without idling in a server for a long time. It can link to #odamex on quakenet.

As of r5110, the launcher includes a button to connect any irc client installed on the system using the irc:// protocol to #odaplayers on quakenet

The launcher will detect the situation of the user not having an irc client installed and will show a message dialog asking if they want to get one (HexChat currently)

Perhaps we should consider a link to Discord instead? IRC is a ghost town and the majority of the community have transitioned to Discord.

I definitely second this.

Besides, we're also including DiscordRPC into Odamex itself, so that people could join them on the go.

With Discord in play, yea this ship has sailed. Marking wontfix.
