XDCC Tutorial

This is a little FAQ about how to download using XDCC.

Since many people need help to download using it, because some torrents are "dead"(no seeders, or seeders become rare), its better to they learn how to use it.

First of all. You must download mIRC. mIRC is an internet relay chat program. Its where you can directly contact the staff, and other users. Also you can idle and talk there =)

Download mIRC from here

After downloading, install it. When you finish installing, it will ask you some details. I think i don't need to use screenshots, since they're basic details. I'll just write what is each one, and you will know.

The 1st time you run mIRC, you have to setup somethings in order to connect.

Name -> Your name, or whatever you want =)


E-mail address -> Your e-mail, or anything that looks like an email


Nickname: The nickname you gonna use over the network you connect. Note that this field is important, and you must pay some attention. I'll discuss quickly about it later.

Alternative: An alternative nickname, if the nick you choose on "Nickname" is already being used.

Well. If when you connect, you receive a message "NickServ- This nickname is registered and protected. If it is your nick, type /msg NickServ IDENTIFY password.", please just change your nickname. It means the nickname you choose, is already registered for someone on the network, and you must choose other nickname. Or you can stay like an Guestxxxx (where x's are numbers) if you want =)

Back to the business. According to the screenshot, under the tab "Connect" (where you configured your nickname, name and email), you gonna select the Rizon's server. The rizon's server its where #br-raws channel is. On this list, just select rizon from server's list, and then click on select.

Now lets setup your client to receive the files. In this same screen, scroll down and select the tab "DCC". In this tab, you gonna setup things for mIRC working with files. The screenshot shows a recommended setup for beginners.

WARNING: IF THIS IS THE 1ST TIME YOU USE MIRC, PLEASE DON'T PUT AUTO-ACCEPT. ANY NETWORK IS FULL OF PERSONS WHO TRIES TO SPAM AND SEND VIRUSES. USE THE OPTION TO ASK IF YOU WANT THE FILE.

Now, if you want you can go and leech as hell. But I did not explain how to use #br-raws' bot. Even if you find out, you gonna have a problem. Your client will deny some filetypes. This is what we gonna solve now.

Now, still on DCC tab click on the option "Ignore". In the menu "Method", select "Disabled". Also, uncheck the box "Turn ignore back in x minutes"(Where x, its the number of minutes you gonna select from the menu). It will allow you to receive any filetype. Its better, because sometimes mIRC gets crazy and starts to refuse most filetypes.

Well, this is what you need to get started. Now lets move!
Click on ok. Now, in the top-left, near "File", there's an icon of a little thunder. If you click there, you gonna connect to the server.
So, click there. Lets connect to Rizon. After you connect, a pop-up menu with some channels to join (famous channels in many servers), will be showed to you. just close it. After you connect, type:
/join #br-raws
Also, pay attention if your nick is registered or not. =)

After joining #br-raws channel, you gonna see this screen:

Click to see the image.


Now you're in the #br-raws channel. If you decide to stop using this tuto and ask help to someone, just ask, there will be people to help you. I won't explain reasons for you do things, i'll tell you the basics to download just it.
Type:
/msg BRR|Nishi xdcc send 1
This command, makes the XDCC bot send you a txt with the list of all his files. The file, will be saved in your mIRC local folder \Downloads
Please, run the file using WordPad for better viewing.

You gonna notice a text like this:
#number $x filename.xxx

#number == The number of the pack you gonna request. The most important to notice.
$x == How many times the file have been requested.

Now, to request the file, just type:
/msg BRR|Nishi xdcc send #number, where #number is the number of the pack you want to receive. Also, you can click in the option "Packs" of this site, and check pack list from there.
Example:
I want the pack 4. So i'll type:
/msg BRR|Nishi xdcc send 4

That's all. You gonna be able to use most XDCC bots now. Some accept commands like /msg BOT xdcc list, find out about it =)
This is what you need to xdcc from br-raws.
