Add a Friend
The xfire:add_friend command automates the process of adding a friend. Usually you want to put up a link to add yourself as a friend for other people to use. Xfire usernames are always 25 characters or less.
Join a Game
The xfire:join command lets you instantly join a game server from a web site. You need to know the game name and the game server's IP address and port.
Join a Chat Room
The xfire:chat command lets you join a chat room from a website or link. You need to know the group chat room's room name.
Add Game Server to Favorites
The xfire:add_server command lets you add a game server to the favorites list from a web site. You need to know the game name and the game server's IP address and port.
Setting Text Status
The xfire:status command changes your Xfire status to the specified text. If you specify no text at all, your Xfire status is cleared. The Xfire status is limited to 100 characters.
Set Game Stats
Use the xfire:game_stats command to have extra details about the game you're playing show up in the InfoView panel.
What are Xfire URLs?
Xfire installs itself as a handler for the xfire: URL protocol in Windows. This means that all links that start with xfire: will be handled by the Xfire program. This allows you to create links on web sites for people to add you as a friend, to join a game server, or to set your own Xfire text status.
We also have commands to start downloading a file, add a channel, and remove a channel for integrating the files pages with the Xfire file download system. Since they're not very useful outside of the Xfire web site, they'll remain undocumented for now. :)
