Hi!

I'm using Bass's seen script, and my bot no longer has access to a channel where it gathered about 10,000 records. The new channel manager doesn't want any eggdrop bots, etc. My bot was removed amicably.

Would it be possible to modify the seen script to allow input from a mIRC client in that and other channels? I love being able to use seen this way, and of course, my data is becoming stale quickly.

I could see mIRC being able to format the join/part data correctly and pass it to the bot for inclusion and updates, etc.

Is this something anyone would want to take on?

Thanks in advance!

As I understand you, you want to be able to continue to have Bseen work for just you - the bot owner.

I'm thinking that your proposed method could be complicated. Let's see if somebody else comments otherwise.

In the meantime, just thinking about how to achieve your goal :

Have you ever played with these settings in eggdrop.conf ? :
Code:


# There are also several variables to help make your bot less noticeable.
# They are: ctcp-version, ctcp-finger, and ctcp-userinfo. You can use set to set
# them to values you'd like.


That's copy and paste, right out of an older eggdrop.conf.

So, in use, you might have something like this:
Code:

set ctcp-version "mIRC v6.31 Khaled Mardam-Bey"
set ctcp-userinfo "mIRC v6.31 Khaled Mardam-Bey"
set ctcp-finger "mIRC v6.31 Khaled Mardam-Bey"


And presto! Smile
If/when anyone does a version request or whatever on your bot's nick, it responds and tells them that is it mIRC.
You could have it tell them that it is irssi, hexchat, or foofoo. Wink
Up to you.

Now your bot looks like just any old nick, sitting in the channel, never saying anything.
Be *sure* that it never says anything!

Examine the config of Bseen. If I recall, you can configure it such that it doesn't speak on certain channels. Perhaps it can be config'd to only work via /msg to the bot ... I can't remember... would have to check.
Then, you could make it so that it only responds to you.

All just thinking out loud, about a possible solution for you.....

Heya willyw - that would work in some channels, but I'm on good terms with the channel owner, and manager, and don't want to sneak a bot into there.

Thanks for the info about the ctcp values - that's actually very helpful for more general reasons.
