Background: For anyone who doesn't know, psybnc is a bouncer, which (among other features) allows a user to connect (and stay connected) to multiple IRC servers with a single process. You set up a primary server to which it will connect, and you give secondary servers a "prefix," like ab. So, when I'm connected to two servers, I see the channels from my primary server like normal, and the channels from my secondary server appear as #ab'#channel in the channel bar.

Problem: On secondary networks, for some reason the nicklist hierarchy is out of order. Users with a ~ or & status appear at the bottom of the nick list. If I connect to one of these servers directly, or even through psybnc as a primary network, the nick list is correct. It's only when these channels are on one of my secondary networks that the nick list is out of order.

I have done my best to eliminate psybnc as a problem. Another user connected to the bouncer, also using mIRC, doesn't have this problem. A couple of folks from psybnc's support forum can't duplicate it, either. I've got to assume it's some setting on my end, that I can't correct.

I'm currently using the latest mIRC, 6.35, but this has been going on for a little while, through at least one previous version. I'm not using any pre-made script, just a few remotes and aliases of my own. I don't know of anything in them that would cause this, but I'm open to the suggestion that I've missed something.

Any ideas?

First step is to eliminate the possibility of your "problem" being due to your scripts. Typing /remote off then connecting like you normally would should handle that. Note: If one or more of your scripts handles something like identifying to psybnc and/or any of the networks, you'll have to handle that manually.

I did /remote off, then reconnected, with no change. This behavior also occurs with a fresh install of mIRC (no scripts) connecting to the same bouncer.

you should to talk with the people who made the BNC then I guess since the problem seems to be there perhaps.

or maybe the server does not have the ~& in the right order in the 005


If it ain't broken, don't fix it!

I have been using a bnc before (psybnc), if the bnc running the latest version it shouldn't be any problems.


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