I don't know if you decided to remove the help button, the one with the little red ring, 'that keeps you a float!'

or if it just got bugged out ... in this new version.

Probably because some people removed mirc.hlp in their script.

Personally I type /help <topic>

I find it easier just because you go to the help to find a topic anyways, so it will open it right to the topic. Also i'm not an anti-mouse person, But I prfer using keyboard when I can, and avoid moving the mouse too much >:D

i moved the help file to a subdirectory:
$mircdirhelp files\mirc.hlp
do you know how i could make a /help alias like the original?

This works for me on XP:
Code:
alias help {
  run winhlp32 -k $+ $1- $mircdirhelp files\mirc.hlp
}


Edit: Doesn't seem to work with multiple parameters, ill try to fix..

Simple solution, do like all the cool kids do and downgrade to 6.03.

It doesn't seem to close winhlp32 if you type /help a and then click Cancel (in fact for me it creates two winhlp32 processes and doesn't close either). Perhaps best not to use it smirk

Why not just press F1 (while mirc is active), when windows complains it can't find the file and asks if you want to find it yourself, browse to it. From there, /help /whatever should work normally.

Edit: You might need to get rid of any /help alias before you do it.
