Hi Mac Users !!
This is information that I got from our clan mamber =[E|M]=Kaleu on how to get online with a Mac to communicate through xfire. I'm not real farmiliar with the Mac so I'll post his email to me and you folks are welcome to use it. He talks to me daily on Xfire and is an avid very advanced Mac user. Hope this information is useful and if anyone has questions for =[E|M]=Kaleu Janus I will gladly supply contact information for him directly.
My question to him was , Is it possible to communicate through a Mac with Xfire users?
That's right, but it is a little complicated.
they need the free instant messaging application Adium. They can download it here: http://adiumx.com/ ..
After they have installed the messanger they can install the plug-in xblaze for Adium. The plug-in is here available: http://xblaze.co.uk/category/releases/ .
The plug-in only supports chatting. When they are playing a game they can't use the xblaze. xblaze doesn't support file-transfer and joining on a server, so when they want to join, they have to get to know the ip-address of the server.
The developer from xfire are saying that the will deveolp an xfire for mac when the xfire for windows is finished. In my opinion they never will develope a client for mac.
At the moment a german guy deveolpes a client which supports:
- add / erase buddies
- show away-status
- show game and the server on which the buddies playing
- if you have installed the game, it can be started directly and it will join to your buddie
- showing the icon of the game
- the game you're playing will be showed to the friends
- it will fnd out the ip-address of the server you are playing (that's buggy at the moment)
- you can set the ip-address yourself, 'cause the automatically way doesn't always works correct)
- showing infomrations of the game-server in which a buddie is playing (players, map,...)
- it supports growl
