    Got idea but is this possible?

    Hmm an idea just came to my head.

    i have got a fighting game for mIRC and i just realized it kinda uses the same stuff as C++. like Variables, Functions etc...

    Would it be possible to use a mIRC code but convert it to C++ langauge, and code the mIRC server chat room into the C++ version of it so it will work like it did in mIRC apart from people will not be able to read the code.

    just an idea, not sure how possible it would be but oh well.

    Hugo.

    Better idea. Forget mIRC and code it in C++

    Lock up sockets and network programming. And once you get that it is fairly easy.
    Woop?

    Most IRC bots (and all of the good ones) are coded in some higher level programming language compared to IRC scripts. Back in the day I wrote an RPG bot (in IRC scripting) that was about 10 times longer than it would be if it was programmed in C++. This is not only due to the fact that I was simply a worse programmer at the time but also because IRC scripts require some workarounds in order to do more advanced programming. As prog-bman said, look into socket programming. You can also go onto the chatroom in his sig and ask him nicely to turn on his IRC bot written in C++.

    lol. cheers guys.

    i just wondered because someone i know made a huge online wrestling game in mIRC that people actualy buy stuff for it. like more wrestlers, moves etc... and it works awsome. but hes got it into 1 .EXE file and i wondered if he re wrote it in C++, like converted the code, or if he has a program that can make a whole mIRC folder into 1 working .exe file.

    i was half way thru a fighting game in mirc but gave up so i was just wondering lol

    I couldn't say whether he wrote it in C++, but I'd feel safe saying it's not mIRC scripts.

    but i know its mirc scripts.

    he wrote it in mirc originaly, and then all of a sudden theres the exact same game but in C++ but using the same server and everything;

    one min hes saying he doesnt know C++ and then all of a sudden he has a EXE of mirc program.

    strange.

    Well it's not entirely impossible that there exists a freeware program that converts IRC syntax to C++ syntax. It would work no different than a compiler converting C++ to assembly code. I haven't seen it, though. Did you try to google it?

    It's also possible that he simply had someone do the conversion for him.

    mIRC Script - it makes intercal look good!
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
