This Wednesday, February 7th at 4pm PST/7pm EST we will be hosting a developer chat to answer questions about Galactic Civilizations II: Dark Avatar, due for release this month.
Even though this is not directly Sins of a Solar Empire related, this is your chance to chat a little bit and get a good look at the folks at Stardock behind the publishing side of Sins of a Solar Empire. Yarlen and Frogboy will be present and we might have some time to field a few Sins questions during the chat.
If you'd like to join us, there are three ways to attend, so pick whichever is easiest for you:
- Log on with Stardock Central [Download]
If you have a Stardock.Net account, one of the easiest ways to attend the chat is by using the IRC application built into Stardock Central. Just fire up SDC and click on the "Chat" link on the left-hand side of the screen. Click "Connect" and once you're connected type "/join #galciv" (without the quotes) and you're there!
- Connect Using Your Favorite IRC Client
For those of you already versed in the arcane arts of Internet Relay Chat, you can join us by connecting to irc.stardock.com and then joining #galciv.
- Chat Via Your Web Browser
Your third and final option is to head on over to this webpage:
Click on the IRC tab in the upper left corner, choose a nickname then type "irc.stardock.com:6667" (again, no quotes) into the HOST:port space and then login. Once connected, select #GalCiv on the left menu and in a few moments you'll be ready to chat!
We highly recommend either using Stardock Central or a separate IRC Client (such as mIRC for Windows) as they'll allow you to also participate in the chat by submitting questions.
This chat will be driven largely by questions submitted you, the gamer. We'll have a second room setup called #chatquestions where you can ask whatever you want regarding Galactic Civilizations II: Dark Avatar. This room will be monitored by Yarlen and myself (Zoomba) and we'll pick the best questions asked and post them in #GalCiv for the developers to answer.
We look forward to you joining us this Wednesday in #GalCiv!
NOTE: THERE WILL BE A SURPRISE ANNOUNCEMENT AT THE DEVCHAT!
If you can't make it to the
developer chat but still want a shot at having your questions asked,
you can sign on to our IRC chat and join #chatquestions early. Just
ask your question in the channel and I'll log it, and add it to the
potential list for the dev chat Wednesday night!
