Hi,
I would like to solve this problem:
The MOTD ascii is not displayed correctly on mirc.
Could someone help me? Thanks.

Ex.: MindForge

• _______ _____ __ _ _____ _______ _____ _______ _______ _______
• / / / / / \ / / \ /_____ / / /_____/ / ____ /_____
• / / / __/__ / \_/ /_____/ / /_____/ / \_ /_____/ /______

There's two things that can affect it: your font selection and custom raw script that echoes it (and removes consecutive spaces).

Try:
Code:
/font -s -9 fixedsys

Changes status window font to Fixedsys size 9.

If the font change didn't work, that probably means you have a script that replaces the normal display of MOTD with your scripted one. To see if this is the case:

1. disable all scripts with: /remote off
2. reconnect to that server, and see if the display is correct while using font FixedSys.
3. re-enable your scripts before you forget: /remote on.

If the display works, you probably have a script which traps the 'raw' event numeric 372. Without knowing what your script handler looks like, it's hard to know how to fix it. The extra spaces are already removed by the time $1- sees the text, so you must use $parms to access the 'true' string. This shows a little of how you would fix, using $parms inside the event, instead of %a.

//var %a a $+ $str($chr(32),5) $+ b | echo -a consecutive spaces. without: %a with: $replace(%a,$chr(32),$chr(160))

The problem could on the server end.


What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?

Disabling the remote works.
However the script I use is this: http://gamersirc.net/category/news-eng/

I couldn't find the event in the 470kb script file (yikes), so either it's somewhere in another script used by that program, or it's in a different script you're running. The raw event is most likely a line containing "raw *" or "raw 372". Does pasting this into the status window this show any line like that?

Code:

//var %i $script(0) | while (%i) { var %f $qt($script(%i)) | !filter -fs %f *raw * | if ($filtered) !echo 4 -s above lines in %f | dec %i }

This is what comes out putting that command:

Code:

add } in line 11 and hit CTRL+h

Edit: Also it seems all is broken, you must notice that when you open an bracket you must close it also using { and }

e.g:

Code:
alias test {
  echo -a Hello!
}

Ah, this is another huge script hiding in another folder. The offending line is:

raw 372:*:set -nu1 %::text $3- | _doraw $1-

This should have the script process the MOTD line only if it does NOT contain double-spaces. Place this line on the line ABOVE the existing raw 372 line:
Code:
raw 372:*:if (!$regex(%a,\s\s)) { set -nu1 %::text $3- | _doraw $1- }

If it still suppresses the consecutive spaces, then there may be another script doing that with a "raw *" event handler.

edit: to be clear, the script filename is

Kte-Dyn.mrc

And this file should be edited from the Alt+R remotes editor.

ok, try putting this in the script above that line with raw 372 in it.

Code:
raw 372:*:{
  if (!$regex(%a,\s\s)) {
    echo 3 -s MOTD: $replace($parms,$chr(32),$chr(160))
    ; set -nu1 %::text $3- | _doraw $1-
  }
  else {
    echo 4 -s MOTD: $replace($parms,$chr(32),$chr(160))
  }
haltdef
}


This should replace your existing scripted display of MOTD. It should display it in red or green, depending on whether or not the line contains multiple consecutive spaces in it. Let me know if there's any red or green lines displaying the MOTD.

Comes out in green but the ascii motd works only with fixedsys.

Code:
MOTD: DaturaStramonium` -  _______ _____ __    _ _____   _______  _____  _______ _______ _______
MOTD: DaturaStramonium` -  /  /  /   /   / \   / /    \  /_____  /     / /_____/ /  ____ /_____
MOTD: DaturaStramonium` - /  /  / __/__ /   \_/ /_____/ /       /_____/ /    \_ /_____/ /______
MOTD: DaturaStramonium` - -

Fixedsys has the problem of being available in only 1 size. Here's a list of all fixed pitch fonts on your system. If you have Consolas, you might also try that one.

Code:
//var %i 1 | while (%i < $font(0)) { if ($font(%i).pitch == fixed) echo -a %i $font(%i) | inc %i }


You can remove the 3 and 4 to make it stop coloring in green/red.

Ok, now it works,
Is it possible to remove "MOTD: Nickname -" which appears before the ascii code?

P.s.: In theory should be displayed like this with the time:
Code:
[17:50] ::: -    _______ _____ __    _ _____   _______  _____  _______ _______ _______
[17:50] ::: -    /  /  /   /   / \   / /    \  /_____  /     / /_____/ /  ____ /_____
[17:50] ::: -   /  /  / __/__ /   \_/ /_____/ /       /_____/ /    \_ /_____/ /______
[17:50] ::: - -
