I already set the DCC chat timeout at "1sec" a few hours ago but I dont know if it will work.Maybe I'll see in 5 hours when there's more traffic in those rooms.

That is not how you disable DCC Chats.

There is an option "Ignore All DCC Chat Requests", check that box.

I just tried it myself, and it works perfectly fine.

I'm very sorry to tell you: I wouldnt have written down this problem if this box wasnt checked.

I also unchecked and checked again,closed chat and restarted PC.But it doesnt work at all.I'm kind of lost now.When I'm not at the PC I cannot close those DCC windows immediately.

I do a last restart of the PC and the chat and it will hopefully work now.

Thanks for your support :] ,I'll let you know if it works.

Excuse me for double posting,I coudn't find any editing/modifying function.
After all I've tried the DCC chat requests still come through.

Only thing that comes spontaneously to my mind is:may be there is an update available?Must be a bug, when you say it works for you perfectly fine.

Or maybe you have an idea for a short script?I've never been scripting before so I have no idea how to start such thing.So far I've only changed the slaps and added some.

I obviously might need some help because the people who are with me in the chat mostly use mIRC (v.7.19 or lower).They cannot help me at all,they say scripting in mIRC is different to Ice Chat's scripting.At least they told me that from what I could explain and took screenshots from.
ooffff.What can I do now?

I do not have the problem with IceChat 7.70, which is the same version you are using. But I am testing it with another version of IceChat sending the chat request. NO problems.


BUT, perhaps that is not the issue at hand. You say that you are on chat most with people that use mirc.
I do not use mirc, nor do I test with it. Perhaps mirc has changed how it sends dcc chat requests as of late.

But I can tell you, this is not a problem if an IceChat client sends a chat request to another IceChat client.

Ok, I have just downloaded mirc 7.19 and send a dcc chat request (/dcc chat Snerf) to my IceChat 7.70 client, and in the Console it says it sees the DCC Chat request, and that it ignored it.

So it does work perfectly fine from my end.

Try opening up the "Debug" window , open it from the Main Menu, and watch the raw text come through, and paste it here. Maybe these people are sending you a dcc chat request in some different manner.

Yes,with Ice chat it works I assume.I get no more messages from this one Ice user we have.

But still there are some PChat/irssi users.For Pchat it doesnt work.If it works for Irssi I cant tell because she is on vacation.

I forgot about all those using Chatzilla(FireFox addon).

Now I just made "the big test" since I have mIRC and Chatzilla installed in case Ice chat freezes.This happens not often,but when it ran all night it's buggy with the color- and the emoticon-picker sometimes.Anyway I can handle this easily by opening another client.Sorry,I totally forgot about that.I've been using Ice for a long time now.

BIG TEST
I tried to DCC chat with "myself" from mIRC.
I tried the same from mIRC.

Debug window
chat request from chatzilla gives me the following message:

1=:Veve!~Veve@f0********.adsl.*****dsl.** PRIVMSG Veve- :hi Veve-

chat request from mirc window says "waiting for acknowledgement"
and debug message is the following:
~Veve@f0********.adsl.*****dsl.de NOTICE veve- :DCC Chat (78.55.106.202)
1=:Veve|away!~Veve@f0********.adsl.*****dsl.** PRIVMSG veve- :DCC CHAT chat 1312254666 1024

console says:
[12:41] ->> DCC Chat Request fromVeve|away!~Veve@f0********.adsl.*****dsl.**
[12:41] ->> Veve|away wants a DCC Chat on port 1024
[12:41] ->> DCC Chat Ignored from Veve|away

Nicknames during test:
mIRC = Veve|away
chatzilla = Veve
Ice = Veve-

So Chatzilla is the real problem for me.

And I've looked it upt he last hour when we had much traffic:unfortunately around 80% of our members are using Chatzilla.
I once found it quite handy,but we you shut the browser down or it freezes,you have a big problem.

*Smiles*,it quite interesting what you can read in the debug window.

Ok, there is a problem here from what you said.

Code: [Select]
1=:Veve!~Veve@f0********.adsl.*****dsl.** PRIVMSG Veve- :hi Veve-

This is not a DCC Chat request, this is simply a private message/query. They are not the same.

Code: [Select]
[12:41] ->> DCC Chat Request fromVeve|away!~Veve@f0********.adsl.*****dsl.**
[12:41] ->> Veve|away wants a DCC Chat on port 1024
[12:41] ->> DCC Chat Ignored from Veve|away

This proves it is ignoring the DCC Chat, because it says so.

So I have a hunch you are confused. The 1st one above is just a private message to you that said "hi Veve-" , it is not a DCC Chat Request. This is called a Query, do you want to block these as well?

OH! I thought this was the same.Good to learn something new :]

Yes,definitely I'd love to have it like this:when someone wants to talk to me via PM, I would have to "say yes" or "no" before the query starts.
I have no idea if this is possible.
When I have to block them for all I can tell ppl if they want to PM me,I'd have to start it instead of them.No problem at all.
After all I love the idea of confirming such a request, it would be more than awesome.

Btw:the old window problem occurred again yesterday.I did not change anything, so I don't know why this happened.It worked perfectly fine all the time.
But yesterday my Ice client was a bit buggy.
After using some of the Ice-emoticons with the picker and colors (also with the picker) it froze several times so I had to kill the process via the task manager and start it again.

In order to have a box pop to ask if you want to allow or disallow a Query, a script would need to be written for that.

To block them all, under the Main IceChat options, select 'Disable all queries'

Thank you.

Queries are disabled.

And both:disabled DCC chat requests and query requests work perfectly fine and get ignored.I tested both with chatzilla just a few minutes ago.When I get a DCC chat request, a window pops up and asks me if I want DCC with that specific person. :]

Anyway, I think I don't quite understand the difference between DCC chat and queries.The only thing I know now is:a query is a "PM".

Would you be so nice to explain the difference to me?

Maybe it is enough when I only block queries.

A DCC Chat is a direct connection between 2 people, you are not messaging through the server, which is what a query/PM is.

Oh,that explains a lot I've been wondering of.

Thanks a lot! :]

It all seems to work now how I want it to.

Maybe I try to get into scripting, but not today or tomorrow.I saw a lot of scripts here on the site.I have a slight feeling I might need it sooner or later tho Ice is quite handy.

A few more questions:when I have a script,

-do I have to load it every time I start Ice?
-where do I save it?
-can for instance 3 or 5 scripts be run?
