Does anyone know if there is currently a program that will run mIRC scripts, but does it in the background. The issue is that mIRC takes far too many system resources for my computer to have it on all the time, but I still would like to run a trivia bot. Perhaps a Windows service that would be able to do this or something?

First, if mIRC gobbles resources like you say, something is seriously wrong with your system. Your best approach is to fix this problem rather than ignore it. I am running 3 copies of mIRC 24/7, and occasionally a 4th (yeah lame, even though mIRC does multiserver stuff now I still prefer one mIRC for each network I am on, plus a bot on its own copy), and I have never experienced problems with the use of resources that were directly related to mIRC. I have done so on windows98, 2k Pro and XP Home.

That said, you either run mIRC or you don't. If you want to run a mIRC script, you have to run mIRC.

There are alternatives of course, such as windrop or eggdrop. Dunno much about windrop, eggdrop requires you to rent a shell account (or run it off a unix/linux box of your own), but mIRC scripts will work on neither, you need a TCL script for those bots.

what about opening the mIRC help file, clicking 'Other Features' and then 'Command Line'? It says mIRC can be ran as a service on windows 95/98. I have not tried this though since I don't use either.

I've never understood this feature. If I try to run mIRC as a service (Win98), it just opens up as it normally does with no difference. Shouldn't it run in the background or do I misunderstand what a "service" is?
