  • Fixed while loops bug, weren\'t working properly in custom menus.
  • Added $scriptline, returns current script line number.
  • Fixed bug with Order dialog in Editor when ordering scripts.
  • Improved support for DLLs via /dll and $dll().
      You can now keep a DLL loaded by including a LoadDll() routine in your DLL, which mIRC calls the first time you load the DLL:

      void __declspec(dllexport) __stdcall (*LoadDll)(LOADINFO*);

      typedef struct {
      DWORD mVersion;
      HWND mHwnd;
      BOOL mKeep;
      } LOADINFO;

      mVersion contains the mIRC version number in the low and high words.

      mHwnd contains the window handle to the main mIRC window.

      mKeep is set to TRUE by default, indicating that mIRC will keep the DLL loaded after the call. You can set mKeep to FALSE to make mIRC unload the DLL after the call (which is how previous mIRCs worked).

      You can unload a loaded DLL by using:

      /dll -u

      $dll(N/filename) returns the list of loaded DLLs.

      You can also define an UnloadDll() routine in your DLL which mIRC will call when unloading the DLL to allow it to clean up.

      mIRC will automatically unload a DLL if it is not used for ten minutes, or when mIRC exits, UnloadDll() will also be called in these situations:
        int __declspec(dllexport) __stdcall (*UnloadDll)(int mTimeout);

        The mTimeout value can be:

        0 UnloadDll() is being called due to a DLL being unloaded when mIRC exits, or unloaded with /dll -u.

        1 UnloadDll() is being called due to a DLL not being used for ten minutes. The UnloadDll() routine can return 0 to keep the DLL loaded, or 1 to allow it to be unloaded.

  • mIRC will now properly parse server messages that aren\'t prefixed with a server address, and will use the server address prefix in numeric 001 for such non-prefixed messages.
  • Fixed bug in flood protection feature.
  • Nick changes now update nick in query window titlebars.
  • Added $server().pass property for server password.
  • Added /echo -n switch, prevents /echo from hiliting switchbar icon.
  • Fixed handling of throttle error message on undernet servers.
  • Added Advanced dialog to connect/options dialog, allows turning on/off of random local ports, and specifying bind address.
  • Find dialog now allows you to search for BURK codes.
  • On keydown/keyup now capture all key events in custom windows.
  • Cancel away on keypress option now works for /me messages.
  • Fixed bug in $did().seltext, it now also returns $crlf between each line.
  • Added /filter -b key, strips BURK codes when matching text.
  • Added $onpoly(n1,n2,x,y,x,y,...), checks if two polygons are overlapped, returns $true/$false. n1 is the number of points for the first polygon, n2 is for the second polygon.
  • Added $bvar(&var,N).word,nword,long,nlong, returns values in host and network byte order.
  • Fixed bug in $isalias() not recognizing local -l aliases when called from the local script.
  • /splay now supports .mp3 files, also added on MP3END event, $inmp3, and $mp3dir (folder can be specified in Sound requests dialog).

    Added $mp3(filename) identifier, with properties: album, title, artist, year, comment, genre, track, length, version, bitrate, variable, sample, mode, copyright, private, crc.

    The /splay command has also been extended to:

    /splay -wmpq [filename | stop | pause | resume | seek | skip] [pos]

    Where w = wave, m = midi, p = mp3, and q = queue for playing.

    If you specify [pos] value when playing an mp3, mIRC will play from that position, eg. /splay ipanema.mp3 1000

    You can seek to a position in an mp3 while it\'s being played with eg. /splay seek 1000

    You can skip the currently playing sound with /splay [-wmp] skip

    Extended $inwave, $inmidi, and $inmp3, with properties .fname, .pos, .length, eg. $inmp3.pos

    You can use the /vol -wmpvuN [volume] command to set the volume on your system for waves, midis, mp3s (same as waves), or -v which sets the master volume, range 0 to 65000. The -uN switch sets the mute, where N = 1 is on, N = 2 is off.

    You can use $vol(wave|midi|mp3|master) to get the current volume, and $vol().mute returns the mute setting.
  • Changed behaviour of on HOTLINK event, /halt in one script will no longer affect the event in a following script.
  • $os should now recognize ME.
  • Added test button to agent lexicon dialog.
  • Can now use N = 0 in $did(name,id,N) to access the edit control in a combobox, and N = 0 in /did to modify it.
  • Fixed /did -g not handling quote-enclosed filenames.
  • Fixed /play -b requiring delay value, now uses default if none specified.
  • The B and C parameters in $width(text,font,size,B,C) are now optional.
  • Added $wrap(text, font, size, width, [word,] N), returns Nth line wrapped to width. If optional word parameter is 1, text is wrapped at whole words (default).
  • Improved handling of \\\\network paths. mIRC can now also be run from a network path and will correctly use that path as root for ini files, folders, etc.
  • Channel central now enables Op settings for IRCops.
  • Identifiers called in popup menu titles can now use $1- to refer to the selected listbox item.

  • Editor now defaults to last used folder when displaying the load file dialog.
  • The D parameter in $round(N,D) is now optional.
  • Added identifiers to encode/decode %vars or &binvars:

    $encode(%var | &binvar, mubt, N)
    $decode(%var | &binvar, mubt, N)

    The last two parameters are optional.

    The second parameter consists of switches, where m = mime, u = uucode (default), b = &binvar, and t = text (default).

    The final encoded line is made up of 60-character chunks.
    You can specify N if you want mIRC to return the Nth chunk.
    N = 0 returns the total number of chunks in the line.

    If encoding/decoding a &binvar, the identifiers return the actual number of characters written to the &binvar.

    Encoding uses 33% more storage space.

  • /query now displays address in titlebar if user is in IAL. The Message window now also displays the address in the titlebar for the last received message.
  • Selecting a server in the connect dialog now makes it the default server even if you press the OK button in another section of the options dialog.
  • Fixed $mouse.x/y/dx/dy returning invalid values in some cases.
  • Can now close Editor dialog while script initialization warning dialog is displayed.
  • The $banlist() identifier has been changed to $ibl(). Also the $chan().banlist property is now $chan().ibl. The old formats are still supported.

    The IBL (internal banlist) is now updated every time it sees a ban. You can fill it completely with /mode #channel +b.

  • mIRC no longer sends a default quit message if you haven\'t specified one.
  • /dcc send and /fserve now handle LFNs better.
  • Added /queryrn changes nick of an open query.
  • Added /var -s switch to show local variable being set.
  • Added /anick command, allows you to change your alternate nick, even while connected. Also added $mnick and $anick, return your main and alternate nicknames.
  • Added right-click popup menu for url hotlinks.
  • Added $window().hwnd and $dialog().hwnd property.
  • Added $window().icon, returns on or off depending on whether a window icon is visible. Note that $window().state no longer replies with hidden.
  • Custom windows can now be logged, logging item in system menu.
  • $ulist(*,N) now returns all matches in user list including just nickname entries.
  • $fline() now allows you to search for BURK codes.
  • Fixed resizing channel nicklist bug when channel is placed on the desktop.
  • Added include network switch in logging dialog, includes name of network in log filename.
  • The popup menu in the Channels List window now allows you to join channels/etc. while retrieving the channels list.
  • /log now allows you to log a file to any directory.
  • Fixed auto-tile causing a maximized window to de-maximize when resizing the main mIRC window. Auto-tile should also work better now when a minimized window is restored.
  • Fixed lexicon not being applied to all agent messages.
  • No such nick/channel message is now shown in query windows.
  • Background pictures in custom dialogs now behave better when mixed with other controls.
  • Fixed bug with $ctrlenter when text was pasted into editbox, also added $inpaste.
  • Fixed infinite while loop bug.
  • Fixed click events on icons in custom dialog events, is now more precise.
  • Development notes: mIRC 32bit in future may not work under win32s win3.1. This will allow me to support new technologies in the 32bit. mIRC 16bit may continue to be developed, with bugfixes, where possible.
  • Fixed $findfile() bug, if full path wasn\'t being specified may not have worked. 115.Added /set -n switch, treats following values as plain text instead of a calculation.
  • Added $nick().pnick property, returns .@%+nick format.
  • Added $remote, returns ctcp/event/raw on/off status or\'d together, ie. 1 | 2 | 4, eg. if ($remote & 1) ctcp is on.
  • Fixed resource leak in DCC Send/Get windows display.
  • New channel central dialog, made display of banlist info clearer, and now shows related auto-unban info. Also added Edit button, allows editing of an address.
  • Added /timer -h switch, creates a multimedia timer. Only works in 32bit mIRC. Also added $timer().mmt property.

    Since multimedia timers are a scarce resource, and cpu intensive, mIRC allocates one multimedia timer and uses it for all of your -h timers. In order to keep cpu usage down to a minimum, the delay of this timer is dynamically changed as /timers are created or destroyed so as to use the lowest common denominator delay.

    The moment you don\'t have any -h timers running, mIRC frees the multimedia timer. If mIRC is unable to allocate a multimedia timer, it uses the normal /timer -m millisecond timer.
  • Made changes to mouse leave event, should work better when used for drag events.
  • Channel nicklist and IAL routines now use hashtable lookups to speed processing.
  • mIRC now displays the files changed dialog if you try to exit mIRC while the editor dialog is open.
  • Fixed /window command not handling floating point values for x y w h paramters.
  • mIRC can now be run as a service under 95/98 by specifying -service on the shortcut command line.
  • Custom window menu/mouse events now process the script which created the /window before looking through other scripts.
  • Fixed bug in $dbuw and $dbuh not returning the correct values.
  • Added hash table support for scripting. A hash table can be created/destroyed/modified using:
      /hmake - create a new hash table size N
      /hfree - destroy an existing hash table

      /hadd - add an item
      /hdel - delete an item

    You can use -s with all commands to show output, and -w with /hfree and /hdel to make them treat the name or item as a wildcard to free all matching items.

    A hash table can store an unlimited number of items regardless of the N size you choose, however the bigger N is the faster it will work, depending on the number of items stored.

      /hload - load table from a file
      /hsave - save table to a file

    By default, these load/save plain text to a text file, with item and data on separate lines ($cr and $lf characters are stripped from text before saving). You can use -b to load/save binary files. You can also use -n to make them load/saves files as data only, with no items.

    /hsave also supports -o to overwite an existing file, and -a to append to an existing file.

    To reference the contents of a hash table, you can use:

      $hget(name/N) - returns name of a hash table if it exists, or returns the name of the Nth hash table. .size property returns the size of table

      $hget(name/N,item) - returns the data associated with an item

    You can also reference the table as an index from 0 to N using $hget(name/N,N).item which returns the Nth item name in the table. If N is zero, returns the total number of items in the table. This method is provided as a convenience, it is not an efficient way to use the hash table.

    Note: the hash table is case-insensitive.

  • Changed $ial(mask,N) to make N optional (defaults to 1), and mask can now be just a nickname.
  • Can now use $did().seltext on a listbox/combobox to return the text of the first selected item.
  • Fixed $isdir() bug.
  • Added Save and Log As item to system menu, allows saving buffer and starting a log in one selection.
  • Fixed hotlink bug on ircx servers with .nick owner prefix.
  • mIRC no longer splits logs at midnight for chats, it only does this for channel logs now.
  • All matching mouse events in custom window menus are triggered now, previously mIRC was only triggering the first matching event and ignoring all remaining scripts.
  • Fixed dcc chat bug, initiating a dcc chat from behind a firewall wasn\'t working properly.
  • Fixed notify list focus bug.
  • mIRC now uses the start in folder in a shortcut icon as the root folder. Can override with -r command line switch.
  • Added $notify().addr property, works on watch-enabled ircds.
  • Fixed dcc send/get/chat time-out gpf bug.
