problem with remembering window sizes,sounds,colors
« on: May 25, 2011, 11:20:19 AM »
hi,
I'm quite confused about this happening to the beta version sometimes:
-it does not remember window sizes
-set sounds
-some colors I've changed.

It seems to me when I did not use it for x days, it resets itself.

Would be nice if someone would have a look at this specific thing.Thank you.

Not had a problem like this at all.

Which build are you running?

Why are asking in the IceChat 2009 section then, when you are using 7.70?

And in the "Wishlist" section on top of that...

Which version of windows are you running?

I moved the topic to its proper place, you are using IceChat 7, not IceChat 2009.

So does it save any of the settings at all, did it, and now it is broken? We will need more information to help with your problem.

When I use it regularly, it saves all of my settings.And it is not broken.
To me it seems like pure random, when it doesn't save several settings.
Sometimes the colors are reset when I didn't use it for a week or ten days.Sometimes it doesn't reset the colors when I don't use it for the same amount of days.
I mean, it is really weird how it acts.

When the amount of x days (sry,idk how many days exactly) is over,it resets everything like window sizes,colors,sound notification,text highlighting,etc.
Then it looks like it is before the first use but the profiles work fine.

Like I said: it seems to be pure random.Also it seems to count the days I use it as admin and the days I start it with a normal leftclick seperately.Because the amount "x" appears to be different...one reset is for instance after 11 days,the next reset is after 7 days (also an example).

What else do you need?I think it's a bug, but I have no idea why it behaves this weird.I know when I get back to my laptop in 6 weeks, I'll have to adjust everything new but the profiles.Ok,six weeks (or 11 weeks I didn't use the program on the laptop, like it is now) is far over this specific amount of days it normally "needs" to reset some or all settings.Like I said:when I use it every day it's all good.This all just happens when I take a break.

So are you using IceChat with profiles settings enabled?

That could very well be the problem. Does this happen if you disable profiles?

I've never tried disabling profiles, but I'll try.Thanks much for now.

Erm...how come profiles can/could cause such behaviour?

I have heard a few people complain about them , nothing like yours mind you, yours sounds like the computer is just messing up.

Give it a try w/o profiles in any case.

It gets stranger and stranger:when I disable profiles all my settings are gone tho I once used it without profiles.
Even my main server is not listed.

I have to restore everything from what I remember, only window size is restored by the program.

When you disable profiles it goes back to the original settings, before you had profile settings turned on.

That is perfectly normal, as they are seperate settings.

ok,I've tried it now w/o profiles for a while and oh wonder:it works perfectly fine.

just one thing bugging me:"ignore all Dcc chat requests" is not working.and this is something I desperately need since I'm admin and chat op.

if you want I could open a new topic for that since I can't find it with the search function anywhere here.just tell me please.thanks for your helpful advice :]
