Updated FAQ in the first post with how to change colours, set up pings/text highlighting/away nicks, how to auto-identify, and how to add a emoticon in IceChat.

*looks pointedly at Adri*

If you add the awesome face, make sure you a) make the border the same shade of pink as the other emoticons and b) post whatever code you use to add it (:awe: or whatever), so that we all know what to add it as - everyone has to have the same smiley codes to be able to see them.

Edit: also size should be 19x19

uuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhh

Why does the background have to be pink? And how do I do that?

I have another question. If someone, say, adds the monster emote, do I still have to do it? If so, I don't get why they have to be the same code. Because let's say you have the monster emote, and I type , well it wouldn't show up for me right? So I don't get why it would have to be the same.

I don't care, I just don't get why

Because if it's different for you then when you type and others have :cmon: then they wouldn't see it.

And then when they type their code you wouldn't see it.

That shade of pink is what the IRC interprets as 'transparent'. You can do it in pretty well any image editor - MSPaint, gimp, photoshop, whatever. You could make the background another colour, ofc - it's just if you want transparency then you gotta use the pink.

I have another question. If someone, say, adds the monster emote, do I still have to do it? If so, I don't get why they have to be the same code. Because let's say you have the monster emote, and I type , well it wouldn't show up for me right? So I don't get why it would have to be the same.

I don't care, I just don't get why
It needs to be the same if you a) want other people to see your emote and b) you want to be able to see everyone else's emote. If the codes are different - say you set yours to be :thanks:, and I set mine as - then when you do your :thanks: emote, to you it will appear as a , but I'll just see ":thanks:".

On the other hand, if we both have it set up as , then we'll both see the . So every person who wants that smiley has to set it up that way.

Does that make sense?

Edit: tenny beat me to it

I understand the general concept. I get how I just don't understand why. I guess I don't get, if one person adds it, why everyone has to add it, if they all have to be the same code anyway. Like on MSN, everyone has different ones, but people can still see them.

Forget it, forget it. I don't actually need to know, I was just curious, lol. I'll play around tonight, but I'm sure someone will probably beat me to it XD

The difference is that MSN transmits its emoticons as actual images, while IRC only transmits them as text. That text has to be translated into a smiley by your computer, using it's icons.ini dictionary. If you don't have the 'translation' set up for your computer, then you don't see the smiley, just the plaintext.

sorry guys, silly question and all forgive me. Do I have to Download IRC? or is this on a website?? I never used IRC for chats, heard of it, but never bothered to use.

Download Icechat here Reginald.

You should be able to use the lovely Kat's FAQs to work out the rest.

I'm totally going to ninja it, flame lots of people and/or minorities, then run away giggling like a little girl.
