@ this point i would like to take the time to apologize.. it seems i placed a %n where a %m should have been.. once corrected everything is fine .. version 7.63 even fixed the random crashes.. i am sorry to have wasted your time on something trivial. frown

but so you can see what i was refering to:

alias StartChat {
  hadd -m startup.pause pause 1
  var %m = 1
  while ($fline($hget(Sports.bot.settings,Sports.Chan),$hget(Sports.bot.settings,Player.Prefix),%m,1).text) {
    var %stmp = $v1
    if (!$chat(%stmp)) .timer 1 %m /dcc chat %stmp 
    inc %m
  hfree -w startup.pause*
