mIRC version 6.16
WindowsXP SP2
1GB Ram
p4 3.6 etc etc
Norton Antivirus Disabled
No Proxy
Firewall on/off (tried both)
2MB (230kb/s) ADSL
using NNscript
using xdcc Klipper

---------
Tried:-
Fast Display on/off
Removing All logging
Removing timestamping
Hiding all Events
Reducing buffer to minimum
Any many other options i forgot

When in more than about 5-6 channels (avg 2000+ users) with heavy text scrolling mIRC freezes to the point where I need to kill it via Task Manager.

I know this issue has been posted b4... just wondered if a resolution was on the immediate horizon.

To simulate the problem ..join the top 6 or so channels (by user) on for example RiZoN network and leave for 15-30 mins.

You will usually find this is caused by the extreme amount of users, and the impact that has both on your processor, and internet connection, which both are not concerned with mIRC.

A resolution would be simply not join channels that big, its hard to believe that 5 channels have 2000 users in it, whats that, 400 each.

If they arent chatting channels, which i suspect since your running an Xdcc script and the large number of users.. In which case, the slowdown would be caused by the warez applications posting triggers/whatnot, in which case, simply don't join them.

Also, see here.

Ok thanks for your reply smile

If a P4 3.6 with 1GB ram cant handle text scrolling, I guess Armageddon is closer than I thought crazy

Guess I gotta find out how to cancel my registration with mIRC and find a irc client that can handle the ever increasing number of users in chat rooms. confused

best wishes and thx for your time

You do not 'cancel' your registration to mIRC, you register it with a one off payment, if you choose not to use it after that, thats your choice, however..

You will find that mIRC is one of the best, if not the best IRC client out there, and as i mentioned this is caused by the number of users, and the amount of data sent to/from you from the server that is slowing you down.

The same principal happens when someones 'floods' you or a channel, it is not a lack of ability in mIRC but just the general amount of data involved.

But good luck finding a decent client.

Just a couple of notes...
mIRC is the best IRC client for windows, if not becouse of his look then it's couse you can write your own scripts and change the way mIRC looks and things that it does...
One more thing, I have tried many irc clients for linux, and I had no problems with a large number of users. So I think it has nothing to do with processor, but it's posible that your connection (if you have a small one) is the problem.

I believe NNScript uses a lot of dlls which can slow down your mirc especially if you are in large channels and I suspect your xdccklipper also slows it down...

I would suggest using either a plain mirc with xdccklipper or nnscipt without xdccklipper... see if that makes any difference.

Nope I went back to an older version 6.14 and even back to a 5 version and I'm still freezing. I'm going to uninstall and use my Slave drive to see if that helps. I'm running out of ideas.

You are obviously just trying to serve warez, so stop being a scene lackey and find software that was taylored for that. Also, if you are only using that connection to serve xdcc, then you should be ignoring everything on it except ctcp anyway in order to conserve resources. You are apparently not too experienced, so until you are, suck it up or "cancel the registration" which you most certainly used a keygenerator to obtain.

Okay, you're going based souly off people being in warez channels. What about those of us that aren't in warez channels? What about those of us watch mIRC slowly eat up ram until it's over 100megs, and it's frozen, and I'm forced to restart it. Warez channels aren't the problem here, it's just mIRC.

I have a 3.2gighz (one w/ hyperthreading on, and one without)
both with a gig of ram
both with 250gigs (7200rpm)
both with geforce fx 5950 (256meg cards)
... there's no reason either of my computers should do this, but both of them do, and it's extremly annoying.
