mIRC Installing Guide

Postby IPv7 » Mon Jan 05, 2009 2:40 am

Welcome to the mIRC guide.

How To Download And Use mIRC:

1. First download mIRC at http://www.mirc.com/get.html

2. Then complete the setup, run it etc.

Now click this icon:

Image

This box will come up:

Image

Fullname:

Your full name is, eg: Test is Test@127.0.0.1 * 1337
Which is "1337"

Email Address:

Put your email address in this box.

NickName:

Your IRC name you want.

Alternative:

This means a second choice if your nick is already in use.

Connecting To A Server:

On mIRC type:

Code: Select all

/server SERVER:6667

eg:

Code: Select all

/server irc.swiftirc.net:6667

To connect to a server in a diffrent window use -m first eg:

Code: Select all

/server -m irc.swiftirc.net:6667

That would open a new window and connect to a server.

Connecting, and joining a channel:

Code: Select all

/server -m SERVER:PORT -j #Channel1,#Channel2

If you just want to connect the server and join one channel just do eg:

Code: Select all

/server -m irc.swiftirc.net:6667 -j #Irchelp


Ignoring:

Code: Select all

/ignore NickName

eg:

Code: Select all

/ignore Steve|


Removing And Ignore:

To remove an ignore you would use:

Code: Select all

/ignore -r NickName

Example:

Code: Select all

/ignore -r Steve|

To clear your ignore list fully use:

Code: Select all

/ignore -r


These are the messages you should get if they work, eg:

Code: Select all

* Added Steve|!*@* to ignore list
* Removed Steve|!*@* from ignore list
* Ignore list cleared


AutoJoin On Invite:

To make it when people invite you, and you autojoin use:

Code: Select all

/ajinvite on/off

You should get:

Code: Select all

* Auto-join on invite is on
* Auto-join on invite is off


AutoJoin

This is to autojoin on connect to swiftirc

Click:
Image

Then click servers:
and add swiftirc like bellow, you need to click add when your in servers tab, im sure your not that dumb.

Image

Then click options:
Image

Then click Perform, in the dropdown box choose other networks and then click "Add" find and select "SwiftIRC"
Then when you see SwiftIRC is the main part of the dropdown box "Meaning you can see it without having to drop it down" its up the top.
To auto what ever look at the photo:

These very basics may be good for new users to read if they want to use mIRC... altho it would be easier if they'd just use something easier with less options like SwiftKit and even that's too difficult for some.


If I was to rate this it'd be a 3 out of 5... but I'm not gonna rate it! :o

Barrage_,

1) Your sig? your top 10 most likely to fail if you ask most people on the network.
2) New people who connect to swift are on SwiftSwitch making this utterly useless.
3) Toby is right, other then you as you can not ever seem to remember basic mIRC commands this guide is useless.
(Tim) Awong, the helpops are scaring me.
