What's contained in your /onstart alias?

just a bunch of statistical "echo -s" lines

alias onstart {
echo -s mIRC Co. Ltd. mIRC v $+ $version ( $+ $bytes($file($mircexe).size,m3d).suf $+ ) on Microsoft Windows $os ( $+ $duration($uptime(system)) $+ )
echo -s Portable: $portable
echo -s Started %started times since %since
echo -a Current Nick: $me
echo -s Today is $asctime(dddd mmmm doo yyyy)
echo -s Current time is: $asctime(h:n:st)
echo -s Total Online Timer: $duration($online)
}

Do you have other onSTART events in that script file, or elsewhere in your mIRC scripts?

Question - when you copied the code in, I noticed there was no space at the begining of the code line. Are there any spaces at the begining? (I doubt it would really matter, but if there's no spaces, you could have a bracket mismatch error somewhere)

Code:
on *:start:{
onstart
}


If everythign holds true, there should be 2 spaces at the begining of the line:

Code:
on *:start:{
  onstart
}


I'm just checking all bases. I KNOW you said if you TYPE it, it fires. My next question is this, if you moved the code like this:

Code:
on *:start: {
  echo -s mIRC Co. Ltd. mIRC v $+ $version ( $+ $bytes($file($mircexe).size,m3d).suf $+ ) on Microsoft Windows $os ( $+ $duration($uptime(system)) $+ )
  echo -s Portable: $portable
  echo -s Started %started times since %since
  echo -a Current Nick: $me
  echo -s Today is $asctime(dddd mmmm doo yyyy)
  echo -s Current time is: $asctime(h:n:st)
  echo -s Total Online Timer: $duration($online)
}



Does it fire off?


Those who fail history are doomed to repeat it

in the script editor there are 2 spaces, yes and i did a bracket check, nothing caused any errors and the 'new' on start event didn't fire either. some reason is causing that on start event not to fire at all

Try to run your alias in a timer something like :
Code:
on *:start:.timer -h 1 0 onstart

I tried it and it worked fine.
Try and paste the script into a new file and see if that works are type /remote on and retry.
