copy/paste of the question I've asked on irc/google and other forums, all failed to get the right awnser sadly.
"I want to change the roll-back buffer size for dcc transfers(usually only gets), its a feature that prevents files going corrupt when the transfer is stopped half-way. And a higher value is neccesary when transferring larger files because they take longer so the likelyhood of a interuption is bigger etc etc. anyway: ITs supposed to be a command you could enter in ALT-R + restart of mirc, but so far I didnt find the right command and where to put it exactley Thanks in advance"
::small disclaimer sort of thing::
I've come to learn that the default mIRC (recent versions, v6.16 for example) buffer memory size that buffers dcc transfers is 8KB in size.
Because I use mIRC's dcc feature to quickly send home-made videos to my friends in other continents I've ran into the following problem:
When Their download speed is limited, the transfers take longer. And in this time the chances of their connection getting resetted is bigger. And normally this isnt such a problem if it wasn't for the following:
The roll-back memory buffer for dcc transfers is only 8KB in size. I know for sure(ive came across it years ago through searching on google) that it was possible to change the default size of the roll-back buffer memory by adding a code + new-size in "Remote" (the ALT-R window).
Now that I've actually encountered problems because of this too small-a-default size, when I resume sending my vids. So now I really want to change it. I know it is possible but it seems NOONE knows how anymore
Before I continue I would like to point out that:
Yes, i have used the search on this forum, in fact ive searched on every forum I could find related to mIRC
Yes, i've also asked on numerous mIRC supporting channels on irc
ALL TURNED ME DOWN, NOONE KNEW
so my hopes are set on you guys(maniac?
Again thanks in advance.
