Don't know if it's been brought up before, but is a forum chat box a possibility? Such a thing would really help with on-the-spot multiplayer games.

Don't know whether phpBB 3 supports that.

We can use the channel #descent on irc.descentforum.net for communication.
For those who don't have an IRC client setup, they can quickly and easily login chat at: http://embed.mibbit.com/?server=irc.descentforum.net&channel=%23descent

Just a recommendation. Actually a lot of Descenters reside there, so we might as well get more people in, for those who have D2X-XL installed.

EDIT: For that matter, is there an actual D2X-XL IRC channel? I saw none spoken of in the stickies of Multiplayer Date Planner sub-forum. Anyway, it's the only option I see for quick live communication pre-game. Any-one have other suggestions?

Ranger's mumble server? They have a guest lobby. What do you think Sirius, Hawkins?

It could also work, with the additional requirement for users to install Mumble. I suggested IRC at first because it is readily available/accessible. If participants have/can/want to install mumble, then why the heck not?

Any setup instructions for the IRC channel?

Like I said you can quick-access via: http://embed.mibbit.com/?server=irc.des ... %23descent
Hit the link, enter a nickname and you are good to go. If you want to setup your IRC through a client it's different in every client sorta (I use pidgin for example), so if you tell me which client you use for chatting in general...

Of course you can also go :google: :) Other than that, the server is irc.descentforum.net and channel #descent, as already stated.

There is, though I'm the only one who has been in it for... probably years. #d2x-xl on irc.gamesurge.net.
Rangers guest lobby on Mumble is open to anyone, so if you wish to use it for the purpose, that's OK.

Edit: Actually the channel doesn't look registered any more. Might have been because I was away for a couple weeks recently...

Right, I'm just thinking LimeChat will take a little setup. Or there's a web filter around here that's not letting me access, since descentforum.net is blocked when I try to browse. I'll have to try on a different network and see what's up.

@Sirius: Well maybe we can reinstate it. With the opportunity of this game session karx is organising, we can populate it for this kind of events. Or maybe Do_Checkor can add it on the descentforum.net server this time, together with the other descent channels. I am missing details though.

@Red_5: :shock: This is probably something on your end... (trivial I know :P)

The giant multiplayer game. We're supposed to find 16 players and try a capture the flag game.
