[xChat] Highlight away


So here is another script I wrote to help me in someway. It’s an xChat script that will send a message with the current away message to anyone who highlights you while you are away. Easy and it works. Expect updates :)

Code and more details: http://9v.lt/projects/python/highlightaway.py

    hi i’m using HexChat Alpha(http://nekomimi.pl/hexchat-nightlies/) & this is not working for me

    * added a timer and a counter so that spamming does not occur when someone is trolling with you and highlights you a lot. Different nickname can highlight you all the time, but individual nickname can highlight you once every 60 seconds. The list gets cleared every 60 seconds.


    also if i choose False, script not working

    sendNotice = True # if true – sends a notice; if false – sends a public message

    Thank you :) pls fix these

    Thank you for the report. I will look into this very soon. Stay in touch :)
    It is probably mostly related to incompatibility, because this script was made for xChat.

    hmmm there is no actual difference between xchat & hexchat. http://www.hexchat.org/addons/scripting
    hexchat is free version of xchat.
    however i’m waiting for bug fix update :)

    Would be nice if you could connect to irc.evilzone.org, #evilzone channel and find me there to talk.
    I am usually there during the day.

    Actually never mind. I don’t know what breaks for you, it seems to kinda work.
    Unfortunately I don’t have the time or the willpower to dabble into my codes that I last seen a year ago. Sorry.
    Maybe I will fix it some time…

    In the mean time, describe what doesn’t work for you.
