I am trying to write a script that will play a random line from a text file, but I'm not certain how to do it. I found a little help and tried what they suggested, but I think I didn't do it right, because the script isn't working.

When someone types "!verse" in the channel, I want the script to reply with a random verse from a text file called verses.txt.

The text file is located on my computer at: C:\Program Files\mIRC2\verses.txt

The script I have tried to use, which doesn't work looks like this:

on *:text:!verse:#: {
$read $mirc2dir\verses.txt
}


If anyone could help me out on how to make this work, I would really appreciate it. Thank you!!

This script will work.
You need to put the name of the channel
That you want the script to work in.
So if you type # for the channel
the script will work in every channel.

on *:text:!verse:#:{
$read c:\program files\mirc\verse.txt
}

whats up with you people, obviously not knowing the exact way of how to script it, but nevertheless replying without stating any doubt, if yours might be not quite correct?

You are seriouly confusing people with that....
