The script was originally made in the mid 1990’s, but the current one called technique was in 1999. It has a built in updater, news, and most menus are dynamic according to your status. This is a utility script so it’s purpose originally was to just add to the default mIRC features and speed some things up. In 2021 I got real bored and downloaded my own script, I found that 60%+ of it still worked perfectly but due to some small changes in mIRC Scripting language some things needed updated.
Many old features were removed due to needing more extensive work, really just wanted something simple to work on. I have since found that I really enjoy updating small parts of this every so often and will put new updates out still in 2023. I expect to enhance the script more in the future.
A note about an upcoming update!
Planning on rewriting most of this script to make use of some newer mIRC features, upgrade many ‘mixed’ styles of scripting I did in this version. I decided not to update the current version with the new dialogs since it means I’ll need to go back and rewrite some of the old features, it’s actually easier to start from scratch using my old stuff as inspiration. The old version 5.2 still in use will have a few more updates to show this change and to add new version update options.
v5.3 will be very familiar but will condense features now into easier to use dialogs, upgrade many old features all in a new format, and there might be other minor or major changes. This old version will be removed and new system put in it’s place, but the old version may still be available for awhile in the updater option since part of the newer system has a rollback/backup feature.
Lots of things in the current 5.2+ version have been updated, but still use a 20+ year old format here and there. This is more of a system update, but I think it also makes the script easier to use and surely some new things will be added in new places.
