I was gone for a few weeks on vacation and when I returned I updated my mIRC.

Before this everything worked fine, but yesterday whenever I try to connect the bot it'll ping me 5 times with the Windows error, then send the message 'tmi.twitch.tv- improperly formatted auth'.

I looked around, but didn't find an answer and I already updated my oauth token.

Username and everything is still as before and for the Twitch server the following data is there:
Address: irc.chat.twitch.tv (already tried that one without .chat and with it)
Ports: 6667
Group: tmi
Method: None
Password: [The token]

Any help is greatly appreciated! smile

I don't use twitch, but I believe this thread deals with your problem:
