As you already know xfire is down and won't come back so far. (One minute of silence please) Now the good message: JFF has a good alternative; the JFF Addon. Orginally the addon was just a tool for JFF Members, but now, since xfire is down, we decided to make a public chat-room out of it. Thunder and Iedu have been working/coding on it for a couple of weeks and the result is awesome. If you are interested in using it as your xfire replacement, here is a little manual on how to download and enter it: How to Enter it: Step 1: Download the JFF addon.exe For Mac/Linux: Addon client For Windows: Addon client Step 2: Set a Password Click here and set the password you like. Step 3: Run the .exe or .jar. Just do a doubleclick on it and wait until it opens. Step 4: Type in your User data. You just need to type in your Forum name and your Password you already created in Step 2. Lastly you have to enter the name of your device. I suggest just entering "PC" or "Laptop". Now you are ready to use your JFF Addon, have fun! Some Information about the Addon and how to use it: To add new friends, just click on the "Add Friend" button, the last tab on the Menu. Now you have the Option to add a certain Person and you can add every JFF member, if they accept your friend request of course. Maybe you have noticed the little gear in the bottom right corner. When you click on it you'll see many options to click on. But most of it is for members only, so don't worry, all you can do is set who is allowed to see if you are online and select a database folder, in which everything will be saved. Online Status: Database Folder: Now feel free to ask Questions below or send me a Private message. You can also make a group chat if you like: You just need to press "Actions" in the upper left corner of the Chat window, then "Invite Others", the last option.
