(Be it hilight/highlight or a beep). I have a small channel that I need to know all the info of. I couldn't get to work, but maybe it should. I could do "/hilight -mask every_single_nick" but that's not efficient enough (nor the Right Way).


Figured out a shaky solution. Have:

/set beep_msg_level ALL

/set bell_beeps ON

be enabled, but do /ignore -except #foo ALL

It prevents nick hilight sounds from other channels but it will work for me.

from: How can I ignore all JOINS, PARTS from all but a few channels?

on *:ACTION:*:# { beep } and on *:TEXT:*:# { beep } solves the issue? – Lorenzo Von Matterhorn Apr 3 '13 at 22:08
As its own Perl script? I'm not too familiar with Perl, but I guess I could learn. – m3hr Apr 3 '13 at 22:10
its IRC script actually, dunno if it applies to your case – Lorenzo Von Matterhorn Apr 3 '13 at 22:11
I'm interested in irssi; would that be relevant? – m3hr Apr 3 '13 at 22:11
if it has some sort of way to call a standart IRC script, yes it would. – Lorenzo Von Matterhorn Apr 3 '13 at 22:14
