I have noticed recently on Moongamer servers, that whenever someone mentions Xfire, half the players always say 'what the hell is xfire?'. So i thort i would write a topic with an explanation :D

Xfire

Xfire is a basically another version of the chat applications like MSN messenger and AIM (Aol Instant Messenger). However Xfire is specifically designed for gaming chat, which is what makes it so useful for moonies, as you can contact all your friends, no what moon server they are on. ;) They dont even have to be on a game. As long as they are logged into xfire you can still contact them, and then you can chat while you play, rather than all this 'alt + tab' nonsense. All you have to do is find your friend's usernames and then you can add them and your away. While in game, the messages appear as a pop up in the bottom right corner of the screen.

After you have installed Xfire (following the very easier install steps) you can then load up the control panel. Which will three main tabs, friends, servers and files.

The Friends tab shows you your friends list (Duh! lol).

The Server tab shows you your recently visited servers, favourite servers (which you can manually add) and then the server search option.

The Files tab shows you an overview of file transfers. The other real postive of xfire is that it lets you send files to one another, and even resumes from where you left off, if there was an error and it gets cancelled half way through. It also allows downloads game patches automatically for you, which is very handy :D

Few of the good points about xfire

1. Allows you to see what game your friends are playing, what server they are playing.
2. You can then right click friend names and and use the 'join game' option to follow them to the server
3. You can use the same method to follow them into teamspeak
4. You use the insert + x button togther to reply to chat messages while in game. This can then be altered in the xfire 'options'
5. Can add all the moon servers to your favourites! :bthumb:


Here is the link to the website for the download, with a screen shot of the xfire console on the homepage.

Add me: whytwokay

I quite like the program, sometimes I use it more than AIM, mainly because it will track my gameplay and allow the ingame chat, it helps a lot.

Yer its made contacting people so much easier. How many times have to u logged onto a server to speak to some one and then they leave just as you get in! <_<

I recommend Xfire to every1! Plus it doesn't really cause any ingame lag either if that is something people are worried about. I still die just as many times as i did before i installed it lol.
