Latest version and details always available at:

Requires Adium 1.4 ( and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard or later

Xblaze is a plugin for Adium that allows you access to Xfire to chat to your friends and see what games they're playing.

  • Completely rewritten from the ground up
  • No more XfireLib
    • Xblaze now uses the foundation that MacFire was built on (Thanks Archon!)
  • Chat to your friends
  • Login to Multiple Accounts
  • Manage your friends
  • Set custom status messages
  • Set a custom nickname
  • See what games your friends are playing
  • Allow friends to see what games you're playing
  • Track game stats
  • Tightly integrated with Adium
  • Search for other Xfire users
  • Typing notifications
  • Server info (Game IP and Port if available)


  • Made it work again...

  • Updated to support the latest changes in the Xfire protocol.
  • Fixes the issue where friends would appear offline, when they are actually online.

  • Fixed an issue that would cause friends that were both a friend and a clan member to fall out of the Xfire group when a new friend was added.

  • Fixed a bug where friends of friends would be moved to the Offline group, instead of being removed from the contacts list when they stopped playing a game. The result was that the offline group became littered with 'offline' FoF's
  • Offline clan members are now shown in the offline group, they were previously missing from the contact list entirely, meaning only online clan members could be seen.

  • Merged in many fixes that were made as part of developing Xblaze for iPhone. Most notable fixes:
    • Clan support
    • Fixed many crashes related to friends going offline, being removed or removing you
    • Load icons as and when they're needed instead of all together at the launch of the app (this makes Xblaze's memory footprint much smaller, and the app a little faster)
    • Updated the games list and and icons to match the latest Xfire release. Many new games and their icons supported
    • Many other small big fixes and crash preventions

  • I'm sure that by doing this I've created a whole new set of bugs, so if you do happen to notice any, give me a shout and I'll see what I can do

  • Fixed a bug that prevented Xblaze from connecting when Adium starts if you check the "Connect when Adium opens" option.
  • Fixed an issue where Friends of Friends were randomly bring shown in the contact list. Current solution is to not show any friends of friends at all. A friends of friends solution will be worked out in a later release

  • Contact list has been optimised - should build and update much faster than previously.
  • Server info is now shown if available in the tooltip for contacts.

  • Xblaze will now show typing notifications when your friends are typing, and send typing notifications to your friends when you are typing.
  • Plugged a few minor memory leaks

  • Completely rewritten from the ground up
  • No more XfireLib
    • Xblaze now uses the foundation that MacFire was built on (Thanks Archon!)
  • No regression
    • Xblaze supports all the features that it did in previous versions
  • Multiple Accounts
  • Tightly integrated with Adium
  • Search for other Xfire users

LOVE it! Good job dude.

Works pretty well. Can you make it so it displays their nickname rather than their log in name on the contact list?

Xblaze "hangs" the Adium process quite a while when logging in. This is very irritating, because it also prevents the other protocols to log on until it's done (20-30 seconds).

The version number of the downloaded file still says "1.1.2".

This plugin isn't showing up for me at all, I installed and it tells me it's successful but doesn't show any way to add my account?

Did you restart Adium after installing?
Xfire should show up as a service option when adding a new account to Adium, provided that the plugin is installed, Adium has been restarted and the plugin is not disabled for any reason.

I'm having the same issue, Xfire isn't showing up as a service. I confirmed it's installed and restarted a few times. I even tried reinstalling Adium but it still won't show up.

# by jasarien on 03/18/11 at 10:55:26

What version of Adium are you using?

I'm also having problems with this plugin now. I'm using the most current version of Adium and I've tried both manually installing Xblaze and just installing it from the site. I restart Adium every time and Xfire never shows up in my list of services. Xblaze was one of the main reason I even use Adium so I hope there is some help for this problem soon!
