Download and install mIRC, after, there are a few things that need to be specifically configured in order to properly go about downloading Anime without problems.Web Page:http://www.mirc.com/get.html
Open mIRC, click Tools on top and select Options.
- Once the option menu is up, you will notice 7 categories. They are Connect, IRC, Sounds, Mouse, DCC, Display and Other. Only 2 of them are important for this.
Double click Connect and you’ll now be asked to type in your name, e-mail, a nickname and an alternative nickname.
Note:If you feel you are willing enough to put your real information then do so but many for security reasons, don’t. Putting down your actual e-mail may result in receiving spam. mIRC has really grown in popularity and so be creative with your nickname because it may or may not be taken already.
After having double clicked Connect, you were presented with 5 sub-categories.They are Server, Options, Local Info, Identd and Firewall.
Default settings for Servers, Options, and Firewall are just fine but you can choose to go through them after this tutorial.It’s recommended that you refer to the Help Section for an explanation on each sub-category.
To move on, go to Identd and check where it says “Enable Identd server?. Why enable Identd? Many IRC servers require Identd in order to identify who you are and what operating system you’re running. Under User ID, you’ll type in the nickname you used in step 3; all other settings should be left on their default values.
Look back at the regular categories again and double click DCC.In this section, you’ll see “On Send Request? and “On Chat Request?. The settings for this section are more of a personal preference. For those that wish to request a download and let it download on it’s own you’ll change “On Send Request? to Auto-get file, “If file exists? to Resume. For those that wish to request a download and wait on it, you’ll select “Show get dialog?. It’s recommended that you leave the “On Chat Request? on Show chat dialog because IRC is filled with many spammer and this may cause your IRC client to be filled with extra windows filled with spamming messages from those uses.
Note:Leaving Auto-get file on can be very risky depending on what room you’re in. Certain rooms may have users that’ll attempt to send other users viruses but most room Admins will usually kick those users out.
Now select the sub-category “Folders�?
and under Type select default.
- Once you’ve selected default, click on edit and under “Into this folder�? change it to the location where you want your downloads to go.
Click on Ignore now under Folders and make sure you select Disabled under Method.
On the bottom, uncheck “Turn ignore back on in.?
- If you feel this is going to end up having bots sent you all sorts of things then try this. Switch the method to “Accept only? and add the following extensions: *.avi, *.mkv, *.mp4, and *.ogm.
Commonly known extensions for subbed Anime video files.
Note:This is done in order to avoid having mIRC decline an anime download request because of its extension.
Now go to Fserve and check everything except “Perform DNS lookup.? You’re now done configuring your mIRC client. It’s time to get to downloading!
