To get mine to work I didn't do anything fancy just did the below.

mIRC Options
Display
Tray

changed the ICON path and palced checks in apropriate boxes

Place icon in tray when minimized and anamate icon when there is activity.

Hope this helps.

Mine works and thats all I did.

well, was that a default ico? i have made a custom icon for my irc client.

im sure there is more to it then just pointing to a icon file that is just that.

I think what he is getting at and I have wondered myself is, does mirc animate the icon by manipulating it or does the icon have some info inside the .ico file that tells mirc to use animated images.
I could be wrong about what ijk meant, but at least I might get an answer for my own curiosity wink

thats exactly what i mean. i have used several programs to look at icons inside the exe and the ico file in the original mirc.exe and i see none that look like the animated one (green r lights up i beleive)

i have set the new client for animated on activity, but nothing happens, so my guess there is some kind of hidden icon somewhere, i unno :-/

It might just be color cycling, like the windows splash screen (at least the 98 one) That was just a bitmap with a cycle colors flag set. Maybe icons have the same thing? (i dont know)

You could try programs like Jasc Paint Shop Pro (ones that have gif animation creating modules). Should work for ICO files, I would imaging... though, I've never bothered with making an animated ICO.

Just looked this thread again and started to think again....

One way would be if you play with $appstate and /tray -i iconfile

So it could be something like this maybe....

Code:
ON *:TEXT:*:#: {
if ($appstate == tray) {
tray -i trayico_chantext.ico
}
}

on *:TEXT:*:?: {
if ($appstate == tray) {
tray -i2 trayicons.ico
}
}

on 1:DISCONNECT: {
if ($appstate == tray) {
tray -i5 trayicons.dll
}
}



and so on...

If you are bored enough you could make a LONG script and use custom tray icon for every single event... grin
