hey i just reinstalled mIRC and ever since i reinstalled it, it won't let me connect to servers. I could connect to servers before, but now i can't connect to any. This is what it says when i try to connect.

* Connecting to east.gamesnet.net (6667)
-
-east.gamesnet.net- *** Looking up your hostname
-
-east.gamesnet.net- *** Checking Ident
-
-east.gamesnet.net- *** Found your hostname
-
Ping? Pong!
-
Your username is invalid.
Connect with your real username, in lowercase.
If your mail address were foo@bar.com, your username would be foo.
-
Closing Link: x_sTyLeZ_x by Slim.NY.US.GamesNET.net (USER: Bad username)
-
* Disconnected

I have tried to change my username also. I've tried many things. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!! frown

did you put the correct email addy in, all lower case, without any numbers? Is the user name whatever is before the @ ?You would do better to be asking on gamesnets forum, as this isnt a mIRC prob, its network specific, web page

ok then what ur saying is ur email addy is filled out like this x_stylze_x@email.com

because if its not like that then u will get a badusername promtp on alot of networks that want them both to match ...... so it isnt not a mirc problem it is infact possibly a user error ..... or its got somethign to do with a script uve installed ... 2 things turn the debug on and try to connect and make sure it is infact sending the email password u filled in ... or if ur ident doesnt match then change that also ... because on some ircd they will allow the use of ident to be used as ur username ..... so fix them couple issues and come back and let us know if that has helped any

okay it's /debug on right? i did that and tried to connect. it still doesn't work. i matched my identd also. i also matched everythin to my email and tried that. still doesn't work. the same message keeps poping up. that one i had at first. do you have AIM or MSN so i can talk to you directly? it might be a little easier. anyways it still doesn't work =\

did you look thru the debug log as suggested?

if the other servers you tried were all on gamesnet network, then they would prolly all reply the same way... just to be sure, you meant servers on other networks give you the same thing?

i wonder if perhaps they arent likeing the x_ at the begining and _x at the end

have u tried another nickname and email addy that matches it???
like try changing ur nik to say Stylze with an email addy of stylze@email.com

try that and then type /debug @debug ..... that turns on the debug window ... and then please post me anything pertaining to why u couldnt connect if infact u cant ...... im thinking possible yes parabrat is correct they dont like ur nickname and username ..... so try something different ..... it isnt the end of the world if u cant use that one particualr nick

glad you got it working... to help others who ask, was it the x_ things or that the nick and the part before the @ didnt match? We've had a few ppl posting with the same prob, so thanks in advance for your answer smile
