How to XDCC:

Haruhichan edition.

So you must have noticed the awesome XDCC feature over on the main site. Now you’re wondering how what it is? XDCC (Xabi DCC or eXtended DCC) is a computer file sharing method which uses the Internet Relay Chat (IRC) network as a host service. You can read more about it here

First you will need an IRC client, mIRC works fine. We will be using as the server.

Now lets config the client (ALT + O to open options):

Once you’ve done this, lets try it out! Now go to any anime page on Haruhichan. Pick an anime you want to download via XDCC. I will use Acchi Kocchi as an example.

see the XDCC search button? choose which episode you want and click it. I want episode 5 by commie, so I click the XDCC Search button for that episode.

A window like this should appear, now click any of the releases to grab the code.

The ‘/msg Aho-da xdcc send #2347’ should be highlighted when you click a release, copy it and paste it into your client and hit enter (You can type it anywhere, status window, pm box or any channel) We are using mIRC as an example here.

Once pasted into your client, you should get a message like this. Click accept.

Now you can finally enjoy and abuse the new feature!
