ok so done a couple test ones
a small %loop going up to 2,000, where the visual counter freezes after about 500, takes "5,000 ticks", and mIRC runs at full 25% cpu
running the command on a millisecond /timer -m, takes about 30,000 ticks, and takes about 4% cpu
on a /timer -h, take about 10,000 ticks, and takes about 12% cpu
so tbh, using a /timer -h seems to be a good option here, only takes twice as long as a %loop , and gives a fully up to date counter
I mean actually /filter is the "functional" solution, but /timer -h also works
