/background won't except URLs

/background won't except URLs - 15/11/05 01:54 AM

This is extremely frustrating. I got the latest version of mIRC. I've been able to use URL-based pics for my background in the status window, but only when I go through the options dialog for the window. What I want is to be able to do the same thing with /background, but mIRC keeps trying to go through the mirc directory instead of through my browser. Any ideas?

Why not just download the background?

I'm looking to make this instant and temporary. When I use the URL, the pic is stored in my temp directory and that's exactly what I need it to do. I've made it so that it uses the site as a sort of fileserver...all the pics are numbered and it was easy to script to accomodate for that. But now the problem is something small--when using /background, mIRC defaults to the mIRC directory instead of accepting the URL. I'm hoping there's some way around it, but It's starting to seem pointless.
