All you need to know about installing it
This tutorial was originally posted on The UGL Forums by UGL-dod|Dave (now retired).

mIRC Guide by UGL-dod|Dave for mIRC 6.14



Download and install mIRC


1) Go to http://www.mirc.com/get.html and pick a location to download from
2) Download the file, run the .exe
3) Click Next button
4) Click the Yes button
5) Choose your install directory and make sure all three boxes are checked
6) Click Install

Connecting to a server and joining channels


1) Launch mIRC
2) Fill out your Full name, E-mail, Nickname and alternative nickname.
Note: Nickname is what is shown when you talk, and alternative nickname is what is used when your first nickname is in use already
3) Connect to the server by using the /server command, so you would connect to GameSurge by using
/server irc.gamesurge.net
this is the server that UGL conducts all our business on
4) When a new window pops up click the 'Pop up favorites on connect' box so that it is not checked
5) Click ok
6) Join a channel by using
/j #channelname or /join #chan1,#chan2,#chan3 for multiple channels

Authenticating with AuthServ


1) After you have joined a channel, you must first create an AuthServ account before you can register your channel as required by UGL.
2) To do this go to Gamesurge's create an account page and fill out the required information. Follow their instructions and check your email.
3) You are now authenticated with AuthServ. If you disconnect from GameSurge though, you must re-auth.
4) To do this type "/AuthServ auth account password" with no quotation marks in the status window.
Note: You must use the same account and password as you use when you signed up
5) You must authenticate every time that you join GameSurge if you want access to your channel, but there is a much easier way which i will talk about next.

Using the perform option in mIRC


This is used to automatically run commands when you connect to a server
1) Click View > Options > Expand Connect > Options > Click Perform
2) Make sure the check box 'Enable perform on Connect' is enabled
3) Click the add button
4) Scroll down to GameSurge (its in alphabetical order)
5) Highlight it and click ok
6) Now you can type what ever commands you want to use when you join GameSurge
Example: I want to join #daveisaniceguy when ever I join GameSurge and I want to auth to account Dave with pass Dave09823 I would use a perform line something like this:
/AuthServ auth Dave Dave09823
/join #daveisaniceguy

Registering a channel with GameSurge


Once you have a few of your clan members in your channel, (Note: Your channel can be called anything
you like as long as it doesn't have cuss words in it, and it is not taken. Using the /join command
to join a channel that hasn't been created yet will simply create it. ) you can go ahead and register
your channel with GameSurge. All you need to do is join #registration (/join #registration) and tell
them the name of the channel that you want to register.

Note: When you start mIRC, you have to type /server irc.gamesurge.net or /s gamesurge

And that is the jist of it. For more help on this subject you can
1) Type /help subjecthere and that will give you a lot of help on mIRC commands
2) Ask for help in #help
3) Ask me (UGL-dod|Dave)
4) Ask in #script
(use this option last though, because some of the people can be fairly rough to new IRC users )

Some Natural Selection IRC channels on GameSurge.net are: #naturalselection, #nsserver, and #findnsscrim.

    If you are already a mozilla browser may I reccomend Chatzilla, a standard plugin for IRC chatting, generally intuitive features and the same functionality (virtually) as mIRC.

    And if your not a mozilla browser user, get firefox tounge.gif

    As the title states, "Mirc Stuff For New Users". Why tarnish it with mozilla or firefox references?

    Make an effort to stay on topic rather then pimp your faves. tounge.gif

    There's also #NSGuides and #NSLearn to help you learn the game.
    Once you're past those stages, you can pug (pickup game) at #NSPickup or look for a clan in #findnsclan or #NsRecruit.

    These are the moments when I ask myself whether I type with invisible pixels...

    Try this: once you've installed it go to Dominant Species website and after getting on the main page, select "Contact DS" from the upper left menu. Once there click on Join #Clan|DS| on IRC GameSurge.net! and see if it takes you to our channel.

    If GameSurge's round-robin address irc.gamesurge.net is down (generally being DoSed), try connecting to an individual GameSurge server:

    http://gamesurge.net/servers/

    I personally prefer the irc.nuclearfallout.net server. smile-fix.gif
