TECHNICAL STUFF FOR CHAT HELP

If you're having a problem getting the chat room to work properly, please check the following list.  If you follow this step by step, this will resolve 98% of chat issues.

First and foremost, you MUST click "Yes" or "Always" on the security warning.  This is for your own protection, and verifies the authenticity of the applet we're using.

Second, you must allow pop ups.  There is only ONE pop up on Fractured... the chat room.

Third, if you're behind a firewall or a router, you'll need to open Port 113 or do port forwarding to your local machine.  People on firewalls and routers will notice that it takes up to two minutes to connect to the chat server.  If you open up that port or do port forwarding, that time drops down to no more than 15 seconds.  Check the instruction manual for your firewall or router for information on Opening Ports or Port Forwarding.

Fourth, We make use of some JavaScripting on our chat room.  You need to make sure that JavaScript is enabled for our web site.  ALSO, if you're on a Macintosh, the left hand buttons and smilies will not work for you.  Thank/Blame Apple for not keeping up to PC standards for Java Scripting.

If you're still having problems, try closing ALL web browsers and clearing your temporary internet files.  Reboot/Restart your computer and then try accessing chat again.

If you get "_ _> _ _>" or "--> -->" instead of the chat room, you need to download and install Java.
If you want the Microsoft Java Virtual Machine, click here and install this.
If you want SUN's Java Machine, please visit this link.  Click on DOWNLOAD NOW and install it, standard default configurations.

If you're savvy enough with IRC and would rather connect with your own IRC client, please join us at the following servers then go into #TheBeach (Members, contact Douglas for our private chat room name, please).  Pick which ever server you want, it doesn't make any difference where you connect from, to be honest.

Irc.villageirc.net (will put you onto a random server)
Loopy.villageirc.net (New Jersey Server)
Darkness.villageirc.net (Germany Server)
Dementia.villageirc.net (Oklahoma Server - DOWN FOR RIGHT NOW)
