YVD USER MANUAL (READ ME!)
CREATE YOUR SERVER NICKNAME to be able to duel others online using the SERVER
Basically when you click the CHAT Button something like this shows up
Connecting to irc.scrollrack.com port 6667
Connected to irc.scrollrack.com
*** Looking up your hostname...
*** Checking ident...
*** Couldn't resolve your hostname; using your IP address instead
*** No ident response; username prefixed with ~
*** 432 * a Erroneous Nickname: Change your nick using /nick newnickhere to continue connecting.
Now You must type your desired nickname like this
next there's about 1 minute waiting period for the server to somehow confirm you're nickname,
after that that's when you type
/ns register YOURPASSWORD YOUREMAIL
make sure it's a valid email
so say you want KOBE as your password and BRYANT@Lakers.com is your email, you type
/ns register KOBE BRYANT@Lakers.com
A confirmation email with a code will be sent to your email, enter that code in the YVD area where you type you're nickname,
Your registered Nickname is already stored on their SERVER, type
/msg NickServ IDENTIFY password,
then click show chat rooms button, a window will pop up then double-click on #yvd,
and a chat area will open up for you to conduct duel request.
also the next time you visit, just type your nickname(/nick NICKNAME), and enter again
/msg NickServ IDENTIFY password,
then you're good to go,
6 Easy steps and you're dueling other people around the world after this.
Look for an Opponent using your Browser:
This link directs you to the xerocreative chat page, where you can request to find duels on the chat client, you still need your server nickname for this,
Use only if you can't connect using your Chat Button in YVD
Duel requests usually go something like this:
"Duel Anyone? / Server / Advance"
If you're using a few OCG cards, It is IMPORTANT to indicate it in your duel request since most players online are TCG players, so for OCG duels, type something like,
Duel anyone? / server / advance / Im Using a few OCG Cards / Pm me if that's okay
Duel anyone? / server / advance / Looking for OCG Players,
That's it Folks!
