Hi,

Question - is there a way to set random topics in a channel (taken from a .txt file) - eg. every 5 or 6 hours or daily etc.?
With Mirc 6.03.

Thx.
Gwion

Yes, use a /timer that $read's a random line from the file and then does a /topic at the given interval.

Hi,

Um, no idea how to do that .. I only know how to make it with the quit message (no timer though).

Work with timers

/timer1 0 1800 /topic #YourChan $read(txt.txt)

Change #YourChan To Your Channel name
and change txt.txt to your text file with the topics

Actually, SnakeRulez, that wouldn't work because the first time the command is performed, the $read identifier would be evaluated once and the same topic would be set each time.
This can be prevented by using $!identifier, to have it re-evaluated each time the timer is activated.
Code:
timer1 0 1800 topic #YourChan $!read(txt.txt)

well Jagfire, snakerulez was right also, cuz he put only ONE / in the command so if u type it from the EDITBOX the identifier won't evaluted immideatly but it will 're-evaluted' when the timer triggered

I didn't assume he'd use that in the editbox. Could be used in the editbox or remotes, so who knows.
