I've looked around the forums for a while and I don't see an answer to my question, so here goes...

My company uses a private IRC server. I've been using Snak on Mac OS X but I want to move to mIRC on XP (SP2) so I can leave the Mac turned off (and keep my office under 80 degrees).

I'm looking for a feature in mIRC that exists on Snak. I could create an "action" on Snak that would watch the conversation and would play a sound any time someone typed my name followed by a colon. (e.g. "Ericc:"). I want to ignore the discussion most of the time and chime in when someone wants my attention. How do I do this with mIRC 6.16?

Thanks

Welcome to mIRC :tongue:

You're probably looking for the Highlight options, ALT+O > IRC > Highlight. The options there are fairly self explanatory, click the 'No Sound' button to make mIRC Beep, and click it again to choose a custom sound.

Hope that helps smile

Regards,
