mIRC vs VU Chat
17:51:43 May 31st 07 - Sir Drunken:

Which one is the preferred option for the people here?

Please be constuctive and back up your choices.

17:53:51 May 31st 07 - Ms. Natalia:

ICR because VU chat is totally boring

17:55:13 May 31st 07 - Mr. Dingleberry Dave:


mIRC basically has everything the VU chat has, and more. It also isn't buggy, unlike the chat.

18:57:52 May 31st 07 - Ms. Emogirl:

what's IRC?

19:09:30 May 31st 07 - Dark Lord Osiris:

IRC is the only clear winner here

19:13:27 May 31st 07 - Mr. Supercalifragilistic:

IRC (internet relay chat) is the clear winner, hands down.

19:16:54 May 31st 07 - Sir Fizban:

IRC is where all the cool people hang out. :-)

In all seriousness, if you want to find a vet, they won't be in VU chat, they're in IRC and it's also more fun than sitting in the dead room of VU cha.

19:19:23 May 31st 07 - Sir Drunken:

Some "better" team, kds from many online games use it.

20:01:52 May 31st 07 - Lord Oya:

i concure with what everyone else has said

20:57:34 May 31st 07 - Mr. Iwasfrozen:

no way mirc is bad for people who don't want to down load

it runined the game planetarion and i'll be dammed if i let it ruin this one

20:59:56 May 31st 07 - Lord Argyle:

well...if it stands between irc and vu chat I say irc, because most of my kd people hang on irc, and thats sort of necesary for communication to work. However I almost never log on to irc unless I get told to do so.

21:00:10 May 31st 07 - Dark Lord Osiris:

you cant do anything about it? IRC is the reason this game is what it is. without it it would still have a small memberbase. IRC vastly improves kingdom organisation and creates strong bonds of friendship. I cant see anything thier that will ruin the game

21:15:14 May 31st 07 - Mr. Iwasfrozen:

whats wrong with in-game chat?

21:27:58 May 31st 07 - Mr. Brannigans Law:

the reason i stopped using irc was because my computer didnt like running t and VU at the same time...also in all the kingdoms ive been in, nobody has been there.

that is why i prefer to use in-game chat

22:02:59 May 31st 07 - Dark Lord Osiris:

the problem with the ingame chat is that basically its a load of rubbish

22:03:17 May 31st 07 - Mr. Dingleberry Dave:

You don't necessarily have to use or download mIRC itself to hang out on the server.

A better question would be: utonet server or the VU chat.

The utonet server is what most of us use, and the program to get there mIRC. However there are other ways to talk on utonet without having to download mIRC itself, such as java applets.

In any case, in terms of functionality, mIRC beats the VU chat hands down. Hence why in 99% of all cases, those who if given the choice of mIRC or the VU chat, pick mIRC, whereas those who are unable to use miRC/havent used it before, use VU chat.

And Mr.Iwasfrozen, your point is stupid. You'll be damned if you'll let mIRC ruin this game? We have used mIRC with this game ever since the game was created, which means it has been around for years in VU with no problems. mIRC doesn't ruin games, if anything games profit off them as it adds a whole new dimension to communication.

22:06:18 May 31st 07 - Mr. Brannigans Law:

ive used irc before plenty of times, but nobody i knew were on there

22:08:43 May 31st 07 - Dark Lord Osiris:

get to know new people :)

22:20:29 May 31st 07 - Mr. Brannigans Law:

i tried that...most people in irc dont talk...i talked to a few ppl, but then i never talked to them again cos i dont see em

22:54:41 May 31st 07 - VU Admin:

What about if I make the VU chat use IRC commands so that it can be connected to via (your holy) mIRC client?

The advantage with the VU chat is however that it has a javascript and html based client so that you can use any browser to connect to it (no downloads).

22:57:40 May 31st 07 - Mr. Supercalifragilistic:

People do talk, but not on a drop of a coin. Join, wait and it will pick up. Besides most of the chatting is done in private channels or in PM and less in #vu main chat, though it does happen.

EDIT: VU had a java applet and I dont know why you removed it, it only hindered new players that wanted to join IRC, nobody that uses mirc was ever bothered.

22:58:52 May 31st 07 - Mr. Dingleberry Dave:

You don't need to download mIRC to connect to utonet though. mIRC is the client, the real question should be as I said, vs the VU chat.

People can still connect to utonet through java applets similiar to the VU chat, such as the one at, or the java applet at, but in terms of functionality, mIRC is the better option given that it is much broader and much more can be done with it.

I mean, just having a public chat and a kingdom channel can only go so far. But for those who want more, mIRC/utonet is better imo.

22:59:11 May 31st 07 - Dark Lord Osiris:

the #vu chat is a chan full of the most annoying people known to man :P idle in the public kd chans of various kds and you will find talking

23:01:07 May 31st 07 - Mr. Supercalifragilistic:

If for some reason java applets arent your thing or simply not working you can use a CGI:IRC at

23:04:24 May 31st 07 - Dark Lord Osiris:

you could always put that link back on the front page

23:49:20 May 31st 07 - Mr. Brannigans Law:

yeah, do that

02:19:29 Jun 1st 07 - Mr. Haywood Jablowme:

vu vets - IRC
vu *beep*s - VU chat

02:27:00 Jun 1st 07 - Mr. Breadlord:

pls let us not forget the freee *beep* passes pls


eidit: censured a word that dint auomaticly get censured odd u guys should add it :D

02:32:50 Jun 1st 07 - Mr. Dakarius:

I would love to use VU chat, because that's where the majority of my kd goes, the only problm is it refuses to work properly on my computer (probably because of my sukie internet).
As it is I like mIRC, it has more options, I can get on it, and more vets are there. Now if only I can get my kd on it I will be set.
Better than both is msn messenger, the only problem is not everyone has it. GET MSN!

06:28:55 Jun 1st 07 - Mr. Supercalifragilistic:

MSN better than IRC? Hahaha

06:41:47 Jun 1st 07 - Mr. Hemmer:

It's not easy to get a whole kingdom use IRC- Music is a pretty new kd, 90% of us uses mIRC!
Just get my simple guide to install mIRC from somewhere.. =P

13:04:28 Jun 1st 07 - Mr. Fireforge:

Vu chat sux, not only do you have to share everything you say with absolutely everybody on the chat (not good when you want to speak semi-privately) but you also have to put up with the severe childishness of alot of fools. last time i looked at the general Vu chat there was some fool focused on dissing anybody who spoke, which can be pretty funny to read but very counter productive if you have something to say.

13:18:29 Jun 1st 07 - Mr. Haywood Jablowme:

umm, fireforge, there is a kd chat in vu chat :P

13:26:52 Jun 1st 07 - Mr. Fireforge:

yeah i know. i was refering mostly to the general chat. but to be honest in the three kingdoms ive been in ive only ever seen someone talk in kingdom chat once so it doesnt count in my opinion

15:02:19 Jun 1st 07 - Mr. Iwasfrozen:

ok i apologies

17:53:26 Jun 1st 07 - Dark Lord Osiris:

the higher quality kingdoms use IRC that should give some hint right :)

19:33:34 Jun 1st 07 - Lord Senturu:

Mr. Haywood Jablowme


5/31/2007 7:19:29 PMvu vets - IRC
vu *beep*s - VU chat

09:03:38 Jun 2nd 07 - Lord Weirdgrivi The Diplomat:

Yes Cobra, imo MSN or Y! Messengers are a lot better than mIRC which is better than VU Chat :)

10:52:10 Jun 2nd 07 - Mr. Elsin:


11:03:36 Jun 2nd 07 - Dreadlord Valarion:

mIRC. Been using it since I started playing Utopia 98 or something. Its easy to use, easy to modify...whats there not to like?:)

08:44:01 Jun 3rd 07 - Duke Azaruc:

@ everyone: you don't need to download anything :) =)

and irc works way easier imo :)

09:41:43 Jun 3rd 07 - Mr. Haywood Jablowme:

if you are using firefox, download the chatzilla add on.  it lets you access irc in firefox :P  But you have to type the server since there is no utonet in the listed server.  type this  "/server"

23:27:41 Jul 1st 07 - Sir Razios:

bump ;P more poeple for mIrC

16:24:43 Jul 2nd 07 - Mr. Iwasfrozen IV:

Azarc. that didn't work for me (TT_TT)

18:31:38 Jul 2nd 07 - Mr. Nieander:

mIRC does NOT EXIST!!!
it's a segment of your imagination!!!!

Only IRC exists, and that is the true solution to everything!

and dammit,
here you have your donthavetodownloadircclient:

and the chat is at the top of the page...

19:53:39 Jul 2nd 07 - Mr. Iwasfrozen IV:

it's still not working.


21:09:27 Jul 2nd 07 - Mr. MY God Farts:

that is missing some features and it sh1t compared to mIRC or even vIRC

btw theres more than just #vu for this game most vet kingdoms have their own chat rooms too that anyone can join but theres also private kingdom chats and personal one on one chats too

so everyone it is definatly worth download it trust me
