User guide

Connect to MSN using IRCDS

Some IRC servers can be used as gateways to connect to instant messaging systems like MSN.

Once IRCDS loads enter the below details in settings (spanner icon).

  • Nickname: (any name will do but best to use the first part of your MSN email address. For example with [email protected] you would enter fred667)
  • Server: im.uk.bitlbee.org
  • Autoconnect: Yes

Tap Save To Card to finish. Finally, press your DS's Start button to connect IRCDS.

Once the screen says Now talking in @bitlbee. Type the following, this just needs to be done once.

  • register password (change password to a unique password for bitlbee)
  • account add msn [email protected] msnpassword (change [email protected] to your MSN email address and msnpassword to your MSN password)
  • account on (this enables your MSN account)

MSN is now live on screen. To connect the next time type:

  • identify password (where password is the bitlbee password you selected above)

You can click the Face icon to view your contacts.

Custom Skins

You can find a sample skin in ircds.ini. Use HTML color codes to change it, for example:

bottom_bg = #FF50B0

Controls

Start- (Re)connect

Select - Disconnect

B - Part from a channel

L/R - Give back your previous message

X/Y - Change backlight

D-Pad - Scroll the upper screen

Start+Select (at logo screen) - Disables FAT support

Compatibility

Should be compatible with every cart which have DLDI driver.

Known issues

Reset to menu does not work: Selecting Reset to menu may cause your card to freeze, just use the power button as normal.

ircds_v03b.ini auto-creates incomplete: if you do not copy the file ircds_v03b.ini to your card's root, the app will auto-create it but without the skin section.
