ok ive been trying to search google and trying to piece something together to do what im wanting but its not working. what im looking for is in a specific channel if a specific person enters i want an action to be done.

so like:
if (User) joins #(channel) /me (action)

this cant be even close but this is what im thinking of sort of.
on 1!:JOIN:#(channel):{
if $nick == User
/me (action)
}

Code:
on *:join:#channel:{
  if $nick == User {
    describe $chan action
  }
}


Use describe and the channel to script an action. /me isn't designed for scripts.

Code:
on 1!:JOIN:#(channel):{
if $nick == User { /me (action) }
}


The '/me (action)' needs to go on the 'if $nick == (User)' line else the '/me (action) will always happen, even if $nick is not (User).

ok i copied AWEStuns first and filled in the channel and nick and action and it didnt work. then i copied RusselBs one and it gave a weird reult so i modded it a tad and ended up with close to AWEStuns solution but for some reason AWEStuns didnt work right at first. so i have both versions and if someone can please explain why the first one doesnt work but the second one does then that would be great.

DOESNT WORK:
on 1!:JOIN:#(channel):{
if $nick == User { /me (action) }
}

WORKS:
on *:join:#(channel):{
if $nick == User { /me (action) }
}

i had made a test channel to test it and put my nick in as $nick and the channel name as #(channel).

looking back at my first post and what i have working now i cant believe how close i was to having something that would have worked considering i know nothing of mirc scripting other than copying code snippets laugh


EDIT:
weird thing. in tests it worked but when the person joined the channel i had it set up for it didnt trigger.

RusselB had it right, try his.

Code:

on !*:JOIN:#(channel): {
  if ($nick == User) {
    describe $chan (action)
  }
}

Do you have another JOIN event in the same script file? If so it could be the cause.

You missed the closing bracket (after User)

Put a ^ in front of the *

Code:
on ^*:JOIN:#JohnDoeChannel: {
  if ($nick == JohnDoe {
    describe $chan Waves Hi
  }
}

i tried that using my nick and it didnt work.
also id like the action to be the same result as /me not the channel doing the action.

I misread. That's how the /describe command works, it will be you performing the action on the specified channel (target). I have no idea why it won't work for you, did you make sure your remotes aren't disabled? Try typing Type /remote on

AWEstun: The ^ prefix is for halting the default text.

Code:

on *:JOIN:#JohnDoeChannel: {
  if ($nick == JohnDoe {
    describe $chan Waves Hi
  }
}

As Horstl said about 4 posts up, there's a closing parenthesis missing in that /if condition that's breaking it.

yes remotes are on.

it still doesnt work.
would changing $chan after describe to $nick instead make it "JohnDoe Waves Hi" instead of "JohnDoeChannel Waves Hi" ?

@starbucks mafia, where exactly would it be? what would be the complete working code then, im confused where exactly itd go.

If you're on #JohnDoeChannel, type /describe #JohnDoeChannel finally realizes how this command works.

so theres no way to have the wave be from me it has to be "the channel" instead.

what im looking for is this:

Lisa has joined the channel.
*John Waves Hi to Lisa

so everytime she joins it would trigger and say i wave.


could you do something like this instead maybe:
on *:JOIN:#JohnDoeChannel: {
if ($nick == JohnDoe) {
if ($nick2 == Lisa) {
describe $nick Waves Hi to $nick2
}
}
}

with somehow specifying that $nick is whatever my nick is ($me)

The describe command in RoCk's post will be from you. The $chan in that line is the destination (it will be sent to the channel so that everyone on there can see you waving) - all desribes/messages/etc that you send will always implicitly be from you.

Nope, this isn't restricted in that a way.

You may have
a) some other "on *:JOIN:#JohnDoeChannel: {" event loaded, using a /halt command
or
b) another on *:JOIN:#JohnDoeChannel: {" event loaded in the same scriptfile

To greet that specific nick, extend the "describe $chan <your described text here>" command, e.g.:
describe $chan waves Hi to $nick $+ !

You may also have forgotten to change the channel name(s) in there. It does happen, so might be good to just double check. smile
