Thought I'd stick up a thread to help those who may use other clients to enter the RSI RomantiCorp chat channel rather than the web based feature.

 

The following is for Mozilla Thunderbird:

 

You will need the following information which can be found, once logged into the RSI website, under:

  • MY RSI > SETTINGS > OVERVIEW .

 

Scroll down the screen until you see:

The Chat XMPP info token is your password to the server.  do not give this out. 

 

Selecting the [?] will take you to the "how to setup your xmpp Client" page.

From here you will see the required information to setup the Thunderbird client.

 

The MOZILLA bit:

From the menu bar up top select:

  • Tools > At the bottom of the list select "Account Actions" > then select "Add Chat Account..."

This will open a window like above.  Select XMPP.

You will be prompted with a couple of windows for Username & Password:

 

  • The username is handle@robertsspaceindustires.com (You must swap out handle for the one you chose for the website. NOT your website login)
  • The password is the Chat token you have in XMPP Token under settings.  If you renew this token you will need to change it in the client as well.

Advanced options the only thing required is the Server which is found under [+] XMPP Options and the address is xmpp.robertsspaceindustries.com

 

Hopefully you should now be connected and have a tab with 'Chat' within the mozilla thunderbird client.  If not select from the client Go > Chat (Control + Shift + I).

 

Although the screen will be blank as you currently have no channels joined.  The two main channels for RSI are general & backers.  However you probably want to get into the Romanticorp chat room.  The same method applies for all when setting up a channel to join.

 

Select Join Chat in the client and the following window should appear:

post-695-0-00590300-1390435913.jpg

  • Room: watr
  • Server: channels.robertsspaceindustries.com
  • Nick: Handle (use your game handle not the website login)
  • Password: [Leave Blank]

Hit the auto-join this Chat Room and you should appear in the chat channel with all your fellow Romantics wesHeart .

If you want you will need to follow the join chat for 'general' and 'backers' channels if you so desire.

 

Hope you find this useful and saves a little hassle if you plan on using Thunderbird and not technical minded.
