Sensation nostalgic? You can get Intention up and working proper now, many thanks to a reverse engineered server.
Intention Pheonix is an unauthorized third get together server that aged college Intention clients can basically connect to. The advertisements and stock tickers won’t get the job done, so this isn’t a wholly reliable experience, but the messaging does—if you can obtain any individual to communicate to.
This isn’t straight forward to established up. You’ll have to put in an aged variation of Intention—anything up to five.9 is supported. Version 4.seven worked for us. Then you’ll have to build an account on the Intention Pheonix webpage. Subsequent, in Intention, you’ll alter the network options, pointing to

This getting a brand name new server your aged buddy list will not transfer over, so in buy to communicate to any individual you’ll require to convince others to established up this archaic computer software, configure the network options, then incorporate you.
