Multiple Users/auths
« on: March 19, 2005, 09:20:22 PM »
I downloaded IceChat because I thought that I would be able to connect to gamesurge twice, using 2 different nicknames and 2 different auth commands.

However, I not only haven't been able to figure out how to do that automatically, Ice Chat doesn't seem to save my profile/information all the time, and I can't create a new profile.

In other words, I need help!

You would not need to run seperate profiles for this.

You would add 2 seperate items to your Favorite Server List, and connect them both. Each item in the server list has its own seperate settings for nicks, autoperform, etc. There is no need to run IceChat twice.

That' s what I tried to do, but it authed to the first account, rather than the second account.
I'll try again and post if I still have problems.

Just make sure you edit each one seperately. You will not have any problems then.

I did that, and it worked. But I'm now getting this error message:

[14:19] NuclearFallout.WA.US.GameSurge.net 468 [SS]Naila :Your username is invalid.
[14:19] NuclearFallout.WA.US.GameSurge.net 468 [SS]Naila :Connect with your real username, in lowercase.
[14:19] NuclearFallout.WA.US.GameSurge.net 468 [SS]Naila :If your mail address were foo@bar.com, your username would be foo.
[14:19] *** Error: Closing Link: [SS]Naila by NuclearFallout.WA.US.GameSurge.net (USER: Bad username)
[14:19] * Connection closed from irc.gamesurge.net

Any suggestions?

My other account is connecting fine, and the options are the same, except for the nickname and auth

Username is your Ident. And ident should not contain a space, or some other invalid characters. Just use letters and/or numbers.
