I noticed this tonight when Daylight Savings kicked in at 2am (jumped from 1:59am to 3:00am).

mIRC (6.12) doesn't seem to want to believe the time that Windows is telling it.
For instance, the time is currently 5:22am according to the Windows clock, however if I type a message in mIRC, it shows up as 4:22am. I can change this by changing the Windows clock.
However, changing the Windows clock to a time prior to DST kicking in results in a 'correct' timestamp being shown, but if I change the time to (say) 2:23am, mIRC will display a 1:23am timestamp. If I change the Windows time to 1:23, then mIRC will display a 1:23am timestamp.

confused

Something weird is happening here - I haven't tried restarting yet though.

Forgot to mention I'm running Windows XP Pro (no SP1), not that I think it makes much difference

daylight savings time started 3 weeks ago for me on the 5th october, at 2am, and all changed perfectly, but today, sunday 26th I wake to find mirc says it is one hour earlier than all other clocks in my house and computer say........... this is going to make my time stamping very inconvenient in my logs ... I am one unhappy camper!!!!!

Reported here as well, AEST. Currently 3:27pm, timestamp reports 2:27pm. Someone in #mIRC said "It'll fix itself", but it hasn't yet.


You won't like it when I get angry.

AEST here, winXP adjusted the clock as expected but timestamp is the same. Seems like a pretty simple bug to me.

Got the same problem here...
Have rebooted PC, checked time in BIOS to make sure it's correct, reloaded mIRC and still it's 1hr behind the windows clock.

I HAVE to ask... what POSSIBLE reason would mIRC need it's own region information or any other way of interpretting the time other than by simply using the windows system clock?!!

As far as I can see it's TOTALLY REDUNDANT... Not to mention damn annoying!

Well as a temporary fix, you can turn off the "Automatically adjust clock for daylight savings changes" in the Date/Time properties in the Control Panel and manually adjust your time ... Until there's a proper fix for it at least.

This obviouisly won't work if you run any sort of software that updates your time from a server.

Same in Sweden.
At 2am last night my mIRC clock was changed to 1am.
In Sweden, and most of the rest of Europe, daylight savings starts at 3am, not 2am as mIRC thinks.
