Not sure if this is the right section for my question, apologies if its not.

My question is: Can I find where mIRC saves my preferred color schemes in mIRC? Like in a file in the mIRC folder? I want to save it somewhere and keep it if one day my windows screws up, just to have that file with my choice of colors, because I cant remember what colors I used for Action Text/Nick Text/Part Text/Whois text etc etc. I dont use original color schemes that mIRC offers, I select my own colors, and Im used to these particular colors, and ... you get the idea. Help.

All you need is a backup of your mirc.ini.
But you can specifically find what you want in [colors] and [palettes] sections.


Nothing...

mIRC stores all program settings in mirc.ini. Backup that file. If you don't have a [colors] or [palettes] section, then the color was coming from a script, not your program settings.

That's the wrong mirc.ini file. You're probably looking in the defaults\ folder.

Type //run $mircini

So I just copy what's in that file and create a new notepad file and paste it there and save it as mirc.ini? But where should I put it when something happens? What folder is it placed in?

You can place it directly in your mIRC install folder if you want. If you want it in the same place it is now, just type //echo -a $mircini and place it in that same folder.

It's in your mIRC directory as we told you to check.

Note that your mIRC directory is NOT C:\Program Files\mIRC. That is your installation directory. Your settings are generally placed in your AppData folder, unless you set it to manually place it somewhere else.

You can get your mIRC directory by typing //echo -a $mircdir

Note also that you *can* set your mIRC ini to be loaded from outside your mIRC directory-- you probably did not do this though, so you should assume the ini file resides in your mIRC directory.
