Yeah I did but it didn't exactly give me a complete answer except going "hey look at all the nifty little useless functions that I can do without really explaining what I do." Kinda thing. Figured I'd get a better answer from someone else.

It's just voice chat software. I think it has text chat as well, but you can use any of the 5000 IM or IRC networks for that.

Ok not trying to be a dick or anything but since no one seems to have enough follow through to go a freaking wikipedia page I suppose I will just have to post it here

Xfire is an Instant-Messenger designed for games, as they can be used within a fullscreen game. They have screenshot, video, and broadcasting capabilities. Microphone ability is supported as well. It's the IM for PC Games.

Was it that hard to say that to Baron, guys? XD

Anyhow, I'd get it if you play any other supported PC games for xfire. Not every game is supported, and PSO PC is not one of the supported games.

BB is but you have to mod xfire since disabling Game guard stops xfire to recognize it.

Thank you Wing, though I already read up on it on ze wikipedia, so Mu don't get your panties in a bunch but it is useful for other players who don't know. However, I'm not much of a PC-Gamer now-a-days as I was when I was 12-13 while playing Star wars: Dark forces (still have it lol) and g-nome, postal bla bla bla. back when online gaming on PC wasn't very active. Now-a-days I mostly just play PSO-PC or maybe a little bit of old school starcraft and diablo 2. Aside from that, it's usually all console and the only use my computer and internet comes down too is porn and facebook and whatever random crap happens to strike my fancy. So as I said before, I don't think xfire would really be applicable at this moment, unless maybe I got a head set which wont happen anytime soon.

Maybe you didn't know, but PSO has a nifty chat system of its own. It's called typing and then pressing enter. Cool It also has screen shot abilities. Try pressing the print screen key. Razz

HOOOOOOLY God...

Someone who actually has played G-NOME has arrived on the internet? XD

I've never met anyone who even knew what that game was. That Mech game was the shit back in those days. My favorite mechs were probably those of the Darken. The Sentry Hawk was just bad ass looking xD. Their Tactical Defense Hawk was pretty uber, too. The Merc Spider Hawk with the Gauss Cannon was another one of my favorites.

Dominion was an OK game, but I still preferred the FPS Mech original, G-NOME. Too bad the A.I. was a bit stupid in those games... Then again, back in those days, A.I. was pretty retarded. (Running into a wall and not going around FTL.)

Aw, man... Now I feel like playing again after all of these long years. I may have to dig into my closet later and find the disc, lol.

@Ives: I'm not going to log on PSO every single time I want to talk to someone who plays the game, lol.
Although this forum is pretty helpful, on both the game and here, it's a bit harder to catch people right away. =/
I've used Xfire for years as well, so I suppose it's grown on me. I always have it on when I'm on the computer.

Yes I have to agree, while pso is nice for chatting with people who are actually on, Xfire is nice to be able organize games on the fly, mics aren't terribly expensive (wired 360 controller + console mic works well enough for me) as opposed to posting on psopalace or schtserv and hoping that someone else gets the message and gets on before you log off that day Mad I say that because it happened quite a bit before I started using something like Xfire, but yeah anyway thats your shameless plug xD

The only reason I posted all those links like that was simply because there were 4 posts straight without giving an answer as to what it really was, I figured that as opposed to me typing a big description of what it was on here, there were hundreds of direct links to what it was lol, plus at 3AM i don't have much of an tendency of typing more than I have to xD

Lol yeah it's been so long since I've played it I don't remember the names you're talking about. All I know is that once I got ejected from one mech, I ran around in the crappy pixelated first person mode and avoided being stepped on or blown to pieces (which was kinda inevitable). I mostly miss playing X-Wing rogue squadron though...That was a pretty fun flight fighter...I also have Marathon 2 one of Bungies first games...That's a weird FPS

Well, Xfire is essentially the same thing as AIM/YIM/MSN/ICQ/etc, and since more people use those, Xfire's not that useful for people who already use the main IM networks.
