I recall once coming across a certain IRC message that broke my theme. It had something to do with SOUND if I remember properly, and generated some text that looked about like this:
* nick <sound>
I'm not sure if this has been dropped in later versions, but on examining the contents of mirc.exe, I spotted something in a group of ctcp-related strings like so:
<other stuff> <a few nuls> SOUND <a few nuls> * %s %s <a few nuls> <more stuff>
This looks exactly like what I am trying to remember.
The problem is, a CTCP sound does not generate this message (I've tested on mirc 5.91 and 6.16, with or without filenames, to channels). Instead you just see [nick SOUND].
Can anyone recall what circumstances exactly this message was generated under?
