Thread: mirc downloading question

  1. #1
    I recntly tried MIRC to try and download stuff. I remembered there was a an easy guide on here for mirc and followed it.

    problem, on ircspy, say for example, userxxx [e.g. userxxx on #tvworld] has the file, there are 1 of 2 slots available and no queues. i click on tha packet number that opens mirc, i join the channel etc, and then i paste the commend in mirc.

    but nothing happens. i look on the right, to see if userxxx is on the member list, and he isnt. but in ircspy, i've already ticked do not display offline bots

    does this mean i gotta wait until he comes online? i set my dcc options to auto download, but as i'e never done this before, i dont nkow if it'll work.

    am i confusing myself???....in that userxxx is not really a member, but is a bot.....so it dont matter if userxxx is on the list in mirc?

    what is a bot?

    please help me, i'm somewhat confused.
    ta


    p.s. what are all these beeps i'm hearing when on mirc????

    yes, user x IS a an xdcc bot.

    And though you tell ircspy NOT to show offline bots sometimes the update rate isn't so fast and the tracker is not aware that a bot has gone offline. Nothing to worry about, you can hang around in that channel a few and see if the bot returns, or you can try another server/channel where the file was available from.
    Be sure to look at how long ago irc was updated with the information by a particular source. Also, because of delayed updates, slot availability will not be accurate. You can only verify that for yourself, once you get there.

    another reason for not getting the file, is that sometimes, a different bot will take over, and be carying many of the same files, so, you can always read what's being offered in that channel and by whom.

    My mind works like lightning. One brilliant flash, and it's gone.

    thanks for your reply. I need to get familiar with the layout of mirc, all the different colors flashing at me and this and that is mind boggling!

    may i ask, how can i check what's being offered in a channel and by whom??? is there a different command or button i should click on?


    thanks

    first hint when you join a channel read the topic at the TOP....A few seconds of reading will prevent a kick...In the network window of mirc (not the channel window) type "/list" this will give you a listing of the channels on this network..you can double click on the channel you want to join...(another method is to type"/join #......."....is the channel name.Many large specialty channels(hmmmm you know what i mean) have a chat channel join them and ask questions...

    bot is short for a robot

    to change sound settings go to options> sounds and play a bit with the options

    I would assume you mean autoXDCC from IRCspy?
