When I double click a nic in a channel I get this error msg: Error recursive call (line 339, alias1.mrc).
When I try to initiate a query from the console from a contact on notify, i get this msg: Error recursive call (line 585, alias1.mrc)

Please let me know how to fix this!

This has to do with a change made in 7.33.

You will have to prefix the commands within those aliases with '!'. For example, /msg would become /!msg inside a 'msg' alias, and /query would become /!query inside a 'query' alias. This essentially forces mIRC to check for a built-in command by that name, and if none is found I believe it sends the command directly to the server.

Your code will likely need to be changed to resemble something like this:
Code:
alias query {
  ;The '!' command prefix was not previously required inside an alias of the same name
  !query $1-
}


I hope that helps.

Someone should create a stick post with "Error recursive call" as the topic and the body be a summery as to why this change was made / how to fix the scripts.

Why don't they just fix it? Me going in there and messing with things isn't the best idea lol.. not to mention there are probably other commands not working.

i meant for MIRC to fix it and put it out. I'm not very comfortable going into the script and making changes.

What you are experiencing is depreciated functionality. The scripting engine has changed to remove a possible exploit. What is causing the error IS a fix for a long standing bug.
