Timestamping can be modified in the options. Control codes used there were stripped each time mirc restarts, as mirc stores that data in inis (mirc.ini in that case).

But, you can let your script re-format timestamps on start:
on *:start: { .timestamp -f 05[14HH05:14nn05:14ss05] }

This goes to remotes.
Simply combine items of time-and-date (H, ss, tt, zzz etc) with control codes. There is no need for "$+"-ing the line. And dont forget to set colour numbers as duble-digits. smile
