/about Command Partially Broken
« on: April 25, 2016, 11:24:52 PM »
I recently used the /about command in chat,but $uptime & $icechat didn't show,it just displayed them on the screen as is w/o the strings visible.Only the OS macro worked.Is this a known issue?Is it only not working for me?I imported Ice Chat 7 settings into Ice Chat 9--could this be it,maybe this command isn't available for IC9?Cause I know how the Trivia Commands got in there (from IC7.)If it helps,I'm using Windows 8.1 Pro.

The about alias for ice9 is like this:

/about //say Operating System  [4 $os $osbits $ossp ]  - Uptime [4 $uptime ]  - $icechat

The aliases imported from icechat 7 sometimes did not import properly, and didnt use // for commands with $identifiers.
They always need // in front of the command, in order for them to parse the $identifiers.

Uptime & icechat don't work.They only show up as variable names.Needs to be fixed!Perhaps they don't work on Win 8.1.  :-(

Change it to this, see if it makes any difference.

/about //say Operating System  [$os Build No. $osbuild]  - Uptime [$uptime]  - $icechat

Nope sorry,uptime & icechat persist to just display on screen w/o any function.

Very strange, because $icechat should always parse.
I have tested on Windows 8, 8.1 , 7 and Windows 10, and they all work, using IceChat 9.10

I get this error in Server Window--I had imported all my Ice7 config so it left a litter of Trivia commands in IceChat 9 Editor.Anyway here it is: :-P Hope it helps--maybe it's my .NET Framework I have installed--Those are crazy to keep abreast of.It's OK,missing data has not caused me to give up before!Ice Chat 9 is just so cool!Take it easy man.

Ok, then I have a feeling its the $uptime thats the problem.
Try changing it to $uptime2 , see if it helps.

Nope,still the same.How about we try to sort it out llater?I use Ice9 all the time,these commands are intended for power users.It's no biggie,I used !decide two already in the channel--very cool!
**No wait $uptime2 works in //echo wow!I get "[28 04 16 12:58 AM]6 hrs 27 mins 11 secs"

Ok, then I would replace the /about alias with the one I had above, and use $uptime2 in it.

/about //say Operating System  [$os Build No. $osbuild]  - Uptime [$uptime2]  - $icechat

Theoretically, that should work then.
If not, you should get an error in the Console again.

I will test out the Ice7 one, but since its all imported from ice7, there simple could be problems with the other aliases, not necessarily the /about one. And that could cause the problem.

Nope still doesn't work.H'mm strange...I could've sworn the /v worked,but now nothing.Good idea,should test in on Ice7.
**Omg on Ice7 it works,well almost--the OS wasn't displayed (errored out) but the rest worked fine!Perhaps this was designed to work only /w Ice7,& somehow got imported! I typed "/about //say Operating System  [\%C4 $os Build No. $osbuild \%C]  - Uptime [\%C4 $uptime \%C]  - $icechat & received: "[28 04 16 01:43 AM] ->> You are not connected to a server ( /say Operating System [ Unknown OperatingSystem Build No. 9200 ] - Uptime [ 34 minutes 37 seconds ] - IceChat 7.8 20141213 - Download at http://www.icechat.net )"
