Title: My Alias does not work
Post by: StevieP on March 03, 2010, 07:00:00 AM
I had IceChat 7 working perfectly until I had to reformat my hdd.  I uninstalled the old burn before I formatted my hdd.  Now I have re-installed it on the freshly formatted drive with a fresh version of Windows 7 (same OSS as before the reformatting).  The DCC used to work just fine and so did the alias.  I have written and stored the alias file exactly as the instructions on the IceChat7 page direct.  It will NOT work.  Anybody have any suggestions?

Why not post your alias here?  Then we can help you a lot easier.

Certainly!  Here are the 2 samples with which I have been experimenting:

/rp/say Stevie loves to role play teen roles with other teen characters or older ones.

/j/join $1

When I enter the command I get back Stevie:command unknown
Thanks!

try putting a space between /rp and /say. and between /j and /join

Thanks.  That works.  I have been using IRC for about 15 years.  Even experienced nerds can DUH now and then  :evil:
