When I connect to some channels, it has this error:

Target change too fast. Please wait 40 seconds.

The seconds vary

Anyone know how to fix this?

From Undernet's #Class:

<Class> "4. -Target change too fast- This message means that you are either sending too many messages to many different people, trying to join too many channels in a short period of time, or using the old /onotice command. Use the /notice @#channel command (discussed earlier in Session C)instead of /onotice. (F11)"

That said, either join fewer channels automatically, or else put a delay on your channel joining.

Example:

Code:
on *:connect: {
  if ($server == yourserver) {
    set %i 1
    .timerjoin $lines(MyChannels.txt) 2 join $read(MyChannels.txt,%i)
    .timerjoincnt $lines(MyChannels.txt) 2 inc %i
  }
}


If you turn off mIRC's join channels on connect/reconnect option, this should work for you. Place all your channels into a text file called MyChannels.txt in your mIRC folder (one channel per line with # signs). It will join one channel every 2 seconds after connecting.

Make sure you replace "yourserver" with your server. If you don't know the correct name for it, use "//echo -a $server" while you are connected to it.

Do I create a MyChannels.txt in my mirc/channels folder or mirc folder?

I'm a real nub at mIRC and I was just wondering what script part of mIRC do you put that code in? I'm assuming "Remote" but I just want to make sure.

Secondly, I have NoNameScript installed on my mIRC and because NNS fills my remote (and most other scripting windows) with script where should I put this script? Near the front? The end?

Thanks in advance.

Woah, just noticed the dates, I googled about the target change too fast issue and didn't look at them until now blush. My bad I don't know if necromancy is bad at this forum, but I apologize.

And thanks again smile.

I'm only doubleposting to get your attention, sorry if double posting is against the rules.

Anyway, I put it in and it's not working. I changed
Code:
if ($server == yourserver) {

to

Code:
if ($network == GameSurge) {

because I don't join a static server; however, it didn't work before this change. After altering that line it joins the first channel in my list, but stops after that :\.

Sorry to pester you so much wink.

Ok, try this one instead:

Code:
on *:connect: {
  if ($network == GameSurge) {
    set %GameSurge.cnt 1
    .timerGameSurge $lines(MyChannels.txt) 2 JoinChannel
  }
}
alias JoinChannel {
  join $read(MyChannels.txt,%GameSurge.cnt)
  inc %GameSurge.cnt
}


Put your channels in MyChannels.txt in this format:

#channel1
#channel2
#channel3
