I think you should add either a Nudge or Buzz feature to Mirc so when people say your nick your screen shakes or nudges. You add we wait.

I smell abuse here wink And if you are on many channels, then your screen would "Buzz" all the time, you have the feture highlight, you can add a sound to that too, and atlest i think thats enough smile


if ($me != tired) { return } | else { echo -a Get a pot of coffee now $+($me,.) }

Agreed. Such a feature wouldn't be good for any IRC client, imo. On an IM client, you have a LOT fewer people chatting, so it works okay for those who care about such a thing. On IRC, there are a LOT of people chatting, so it just doesn't make sense.

I would of thought something scriptable could be done, not sure about the shaking of mIRC though.
Already you can make your mIRC produce a sound when your nickname is mentioned, that's good enough in my book. I personally don't want to see mIRC going down the IM route.

Code:
on *:TEXT:$($me):*:nudge $target -1
alias nudge {
  ;1=target, 2=count, 3=x, 4=y, 5=ticks, 6=msec

  if ($2 < 0) {
    var %x = $iif($window($1).x < 0,0,$v1)
    var %y = $iif($window($1).y < 0,0,$v1)
    .timer -m 1 1 nudge $1 0 %x %y $ticks 750 
    return 
  }
  if ((!$window($1)) || ($3 == $null)) return
  var %x = $3, %y = $4, %o = 4
  if ($calc($ticks - $5) > $6) { window $1 %x %y | return }
  elseif ($2 == 0) { inc %x %o | inc %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 1) { dec %x %o | inc %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 2) { inc %x %o | dec %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 3) { dec %x %o | dec %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 4) { dec %x %o | inc %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 5) { inc %x %o | dec %y %o }
  $+(.timer.nudge.,$1) -m 1 30 nudge $1 $calc(($2 + 1) % 6) $3 $4 $5 $6
  window -ar $1
  window $1 %x %y
}


Simply call the /nudge alias from a command/event as shown in the sample onTEXT event above, and as explained below.

/nudge <target> -1
* <target> is an existing window
* The '-1' forces the nudge 'vibration' to start. Don't substitute other values for this parameter.

Nice, I like that alot. Just a couple of suggestions though.

1. My window was maximized, the window shook but didn't return to maximized again. It's not a problem as I never use maximized but some might.

2. if $isfile(C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger\nudge.wma) splay ...

Nicely done though, it's pretty neat. smile

As long as it's off by default I'm all for it. It's a good way of getting your attention when your nick is spoken so if some people want that, then I don't see any reason not to include it.

we inplemented that in our webchat ,
but they can only be buzz'd when they are set away smile ( can be disabled ) ( it works with /notice $nick buzz )

maybe mirc could have it like that aswell

Only if away (can be disabled) would be good, and /ctcp $nick nudge or /notice $nick nudge would be good, CTCP being the better IMO. Kinda like /ctcp $nick page

Buzz, Nudge .. whatever, it's all the same bs.

Still though, totally scriptable (as proven above) and shouldn't be added as a built-in feature IMO.

A Script to shake the window like genius_at_work made above, but the window(s) should be returned to its previous state and position.

Yeah I was just thinking of CTCP actually. I don't think I can see this being implemented, but I guess I wouldn't mind seeing it. It seems quite a few feature suggestions make mIRC act like an IM client. A few years ago smilies & webcam/audio support now nudges.

Really, this would be a good feature for a pager script, options being to log message, play sound, echo to active window, shake active window etc.

Here is are two versions of updated scripts.

Note that in both versions, the command to initiate a nudge has been changed to:

/nudge <target>

The -1 was unnecessary, so I removed it.

Code:
on *:TEXT:$($me):*:nudge $target

;/nudge 'shakes' the target window when target is minimized, maximized or normal
alias nudge {
  var %nsound = sounds/nudge.wav
  ;-----------------------------------------------------
  ;1=target, 2=count, 3=x, 4=y, 5=ticks, 6=msec, 7=state, 8=astate, 9-=active
  if ($2 == $null) {
    var %x = $iif($window($1).x < 0,0,$v1)
    var %y = $iif($window($1).y < 0,0,$v1)
    var %s = $window($1).state
    if (max isin %s) %s = -x
    elseif (nor isin %s) %s = -r
    else %s = -
    var %a = $window($active).state
    if (max isin %a) %a = -ax
    elseif (min isin %a) %a = -an
    elseif (nor isin %a) %a = -ar
    else %a = -
    .timer -m 1 1 nudge $1 0 %x %y $ticks 750 %s %a $active
    if ($exists(%nsound)) splay $qt(%nsound)
    return 
  }
  if ((!$window($1)) || ($7 == $null)) return
  var %x = $3, %y = $4, %o = 4
  if ($calc($ticks - $5) > $6) { 
    window $1 %x %y 
    if (($9- != $1) && ($9- != $null)) window $8 $qt($9-)
    if ($7) window $7 $1
    return
  }
  elseif ($2 == 0) { inc %x %o | inc %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 1) { dec %x %o | inc %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 2) { inc %x %o | dec %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 3) { dec %x %o | dec %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 4) { dec %x %o | inc %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 5) { inc %x %o | dec %y %o }
  $+(.timer.nudge.,$1) -m 1 30 nudge $1 $calc(($2 + 1) % 6) $3-
  window -ar $1
  window $1 %x %y
}


This version will shake the target window regardless of the target or active windows' states. The active window is restored to its previous state after shaking is complete.

--------------------------------------------

Code:
on *:TEXT:$($me):*:nudge $target

;/nudge 'shakes' the target window when target is minimized or normal only
alias nudge {
  var %nsound = sounds/nudge.wav
  ;-----------------------------------------------------
  ;1=target, 2=count, 3=x, 4=y, 5=ticks, 6=msec, 7=state, 8=astate, 9-=active
  if ($2 == $null) {
    var %x = $iif($window($1).x < 0,0,$v1)
    var %y = $iif($window($1).y < 0,0,$v1)
    var %a = $window($active).state
    if (max isin %a) return
    elseif (min isin %a) %a = -an
    elseif (nor isin %a) %a = -ar
    else %a = -
    var %s = $window($1).state
    if (max isin %s) return
    if (nor isin %s) %s = -r
    else %s = -
    .timer -m 1 1 nudge $1 0 %x %y $ticks 750 %s %a $active
    if ($exists(%nsound)) splay $qt(%nsound)
    return 
  }
  if ((!$window($1)) || ($7 == $null)) return
  var %x = $3, %y = $4, %o = 4
  if ($calc($ticks - $5) > $6) { 
    window $1 %x %y 
    if (($9- != $1) && ($9- != $null)) window $8 $qt($9-)
    if ($7) window $7 $1
    return
  }
  elseif ($2 == 0) { inc %x %o | inc %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 1) { dec %x %o | inc %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 2) { inc %x %o | dec %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 3) { dec %x %o | dec %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 4) { dec %x %o | inc %y %o }
  elseif ($2 == 5) { inc %x %o | dec %y %o }
  $+(.timer.nudge.,$1) -m 1 30 nudge $1 $calc(($2 + 1) % 6) $3-
  window -ar $1
  window $1 %x %y
}


This version shakes the target window only when neither the target nor active windows are maximized. This version is meant to shake when the user has their windows tiled/cascaded/unmaximized. If the active or target window (all windows) are maximized, the /nudge alias exits without shaking. Personally, this is the version I would use if I were to use this script myself.

You're right because when the window is maximized, it's more annoying than useful

If you go to mircscripts.org you will need to sign up until it's been reviewed as it's in the filequeue, but a friend of mine has created a small dll that shakes the whole of mIRC exactly how it does it on windows messenger.
It's pretty good actually, worth checking out smile
