TCRF has an active chatroom. Access the chat via your browser by clicking here. There is also a Japanese version of the chat at #tcrf-jp, and a Legend of Zelda series unused content/hacking discussion channel named #zelda that can be accessed via browser by clicking here.

If no one replies to your messages right away, wait around for a few minutes. The chatroom has varying levels of activity, but there's almost always someone around who's willing to talk and answer questions.

Connecting Via IRC

If you want to connect to the chatroom using IRC, you will need to download an IRC client. This is a program that can connect to the Internet Relay Chat network. Here are some suggestions:

When you have downloaded and installed an IRC client, click on the Chat (IRC) link on the left sidebar. You should be connected to the TCRF chatroom automatically. You can also join manually by using the information below.

Server Name: irc.badnik.zone
Server Port: 6667 (6697 SSL)
Server Password:
Room Name: #tcrf


The chat room is for casual conversations and sometimes talk about researching specific games. There are only a few simple rules to follow:

  1. Don't be a dick! Treat others with respect.
  2. No racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, rape/sexual harassment jokes, etc.
  3. No spamming. If you need to show a lot of text, use Pastie or a similar service.
  4. Avoid discussing political topics. It's okay to be off-topic, but political discussion on the internet often becomes unpleasant, and we'd like to keep the channel a happy place.
  5. No NSFW content without warning.

Breaking these rules will result in you being warned. Repeated or severe rule-breaking will get you ejected from the channel.

If you have any problems with the channel moderation, please contact Xkeeper.

Bots must be admin-approved. Currently approved bots:

  • TempTina
  • Rakka
  • DocScratch

Handling Disputes

If you have problems with another user, don't contact them directly. Instead, send a private message to a chat admin. Always be polite, and avoid escalating the situation.

Getting Banned

If you break the rules, have a nasty attitude, or otherwise make yourself unwelcome in the channel, you may find yourself facing a ban. Remember, our chatroom is privately run, and it's a privilege to be here, not a right. A ban on the IRC channel may not extend to the wiki, in which case you will still be free to edit TCRF, as long as you follow the wiki rules.

Temporary Bans

Sometimes, bans are temporary. That means that they will expire after a set time, and you will be able to participate in the chat again. Think of the ban as a warning, try to understand what you did wrong, and change your behavior, or you may not be so lucky next time.

Permanent Bans

If your ban is permanent, that means you've done something very wrong, or you've been warned in the past but haven't changed your behavior. It's unlikely that a permanent ban will be overturned, but you can try waiting a few months and request a second chance if you can prove that you understand what you did wrong and that you will not make the same mistakes again.

Ban Evasion

Circumventing bans is prohibited. If you attempt to get around a ban, you will never be welcome to participate at TCRF again. Don't do this.
