Ok, if you have found your way onto IRC, when you arrange a game with someone, you click on the tcp/ip one, put your name in, join or create (which ever your planning on doing), and if you are joining, click on by host's ip, and put the hosts ip in, if your hosting, you will have to give the people who are playing you ip.

IRC is a program, its used for chat on the internet (Internet Relay Chat).

You need to download this file:
outpostuniverse.net/irc.htm
Unzip it anywhere, create a shortcut to it then Run it.

Once connected and joined the OP IRC Channel (Channels r like Rooms) you can talk to whoevea is there at the time.

The importiant thing to rember is to allways have IRC runing when u are online. This is so people can c ur online and contact u via PMing you. The OP IRC Script (that file) is set up to Beep when u get a PM. This is so when you are geting on with something on ur computer and u get a PM u will no that u have a PM. It means u dont have 2 look at IRC every few mins 2 c if some1 is chating 2 u.

bascily, irc connects you to a chat room where OP people can meet.

If you have any problems just post em.
