Exactly which symbols are you trying to see that you cannot see now? Which font are you using in your editor and channel/query windows?

It might have something to do with the font you're using in your mIRC Editor.
  1. Go into your popup editor (Alt-P)
  2. On the menu bar
    File
    Font...
  3. Select the font and attributes you wish to use while editing mIRC scripts.
  4. Click the OK button to save your changes and return to the editor.
I prefer FixedSys 9 because everything lines up nicely, but that might not be a good choice for you if you cannot see some of the symbols that FixedSys doesn't show except as little black boxes.

mIRC doesn't come with coloured popups in the default settings. You either have to make them yourself or use a script.


Never compare yourself to others - they're more screwed up than you think.

it's simply the font you are using.

change it to something, i reccomend verdana. my favorite non-fixed font. if you must have a fixed font (often the case with me...) then i suggest either lucida console, or fixedsys.

good luck wink

btw... certain characters are seen for colors in mirc, and are automatically purged in order to provide for colors. if you happen to be using any of these "special" characters, they may totally disappear because of it.

If you take a heart from Character Map on Lucida console and paste it into mIRC then it won't show up (even if you are using the lucida console font). It will show up in the edit box, but when you press enter it will show "[07:25:37] <Collective> ?" in the channel, and when you press up to get the previous line typed it has replaced the heart with a beautiful "?". It seems to just be the way mIRC works, unfortunately.
