Well, I think a start would be reading through the help file in mIRC - type /help in any window of mIRC. It's not easy, otherwise all of us would've been wonderful scripters.

Then, after that you will have a better knowledge of how stuff works and you can ask the forte scripters how to do what when.

If you also start by listing some things that you want in it, it will help. I know you mentioned a couple of things before... popups and background and protection, but more specifics would help. For example, what do you want from the popups? What kinds of things have you seen on popups that you would like to have? It's better if we can do specific things than to just throw together a lot of stuff that you may never use.

Well, here is a start for you... the popups. I don't have time right now to try and do more, but maybe someone else can.

Those flirting, insults, etc. ones are very easy to set up. I'll give you a couple examples and you can just repeat those to create as many as you want.

menu channel,nicklist {
  Special Messages
  .Quotes:say $read(messages\quotes.txt)
  .$iif($1,Insult):say $1 $+ , $read(messages\insults.txt)
  .$iif($1,Flirt):say $1 $+ , $read(messages\flirts.txt)

What that will do is to make a menu item on the channel popup and nicklist popup called Special Messages. If you go to that item, you will see more items. The first one will appear for both channel and nicklist popups because it doesn't need to say a person's nick. It will just randomly read a quote from the file called quotes.txt that is in the messages folder. The next 2 will only appear from the nicklist. The $iif part checks to make sure there is a $1 (a nick is selected) and if there is, it will appear (this means it only appears on the nicklist popup). Those will then say the nick followed by a comma and then a random message from the appropriate text file.

Each text file should have one line per message and the messages should be shorter than about 400 characters. You can repeat this same thing for all types of messages you want to use. Use the format of the quotes line for things that you don't want to include the person's nick and use the format of the insult/flirt line if you do want to include the person's nick.

As a note, you can do special things with it as well. The obvious one would be to add color to it... just put color codes in there:
.$iif($1,Flirt):say 04 $+ $1 $+ , $read(messages\flirts.txt)

Also, if you want the nick to appear somewhere in the middle of a message, you can do this:
.$iif($1,Flirt):say $replace($read(messages\flirts.txt),#nick#,$1)

Then, in the text file, wherever you want the nick to appear, put #nick# -- for example:

Hey, #nick#! You're cute.


Anyhow, that is basically all you need for the popup stuff. They won't be too hard to set up... it just takes time to type all the lines in those files.

That will get you started.

Press Alt-R, then go to File > New. Paste it in there. These will work with whatever script(s) you're running now, but if you're making something new instead of using scripts already made, you may just want to start from a clean mIRC install and add these to that.

Hehe. Once you get started doing this, you'll start to pick it up. smile

Using a clean install of mIRC, open it up and press Alt-R. Then, if the displayed remote script isn't blank, go to File > New. *If it is a clean install and you haven't done any other scripts yet, it will be blank already and you won't need to do a new file.*

Then, paste in what I showed you. You can use the two options I gave (colors and having the nick shown within messages) if you want to.

Assuming you don't change anything, you will need to make a folder in mIRC's folder called Messages. Inside that folder, you'll create a text file called quotes.txt and put different quotes/sayings in it... one per line. You'll also create a text file called insults.txt and one called flirts.txt and will put insults and flirts in those files. Then, when you connect to a network and join a channel, you can use the right click menu to display those items. Try right clicking in a channel and choose quotes. Then, try right clicking on a nick and choose flirts or insults.

When done, you may want to go to File > Save As and save it with a filename that makes sense to you so you can easily find the right script from the View menu... if it's just called script1.mrc, then you won't know what is in it.
