Bug #130


Sudden loss of channel activity (unable to recieve messages)

Added by L CD over 15 years ago. Updated about 15 years ago.

Estimated time:
Operative System:
Windows Vista


I've had this problem at least twice. On Windows XP and more recent, on Vista.

Sometimes the channel activity completely dies. No error logs or anything. I can still send messages (others can read them too), I can't however read their messages. It's a very strange problem indeed and the only solution I've found is reinstalling the program.

  • Can't see other peoples messages
  • This includes private chats
  • No MOTD (channel bar) is visible


  • "Quit" messages are working (when user disconnects)
  • Connection to QNet is established
  • Channel user list is visible
  • Everything else generally works fine

My system for bug tracking
(unfortunately it's all I can provide right now
if there are any error logs to look for please tell me)

Windows Vista (w. jan updates), (bug exists on XP as well)
ATI Radeon (Catalyst) 9.1
Comodo Personal Firewall
Intel Matrix Storage (RAID5)
Realtek Audio Drivers

Hardware; C2D E6400, 2 GB RAM, GFX ATI 2900XT (if that matters)

========= UPDATE ===========

It's a bug!

CAUSE: Some parameters in user ignore list 'ignore.ini' blocks all incoming messages.

SOLUTION: Remove all entries from the list.

Developers: There's something wrong with the syntax in ignore.ini that for some reason blocks all incoming messages. I think "AdiIRC.exe" reads it wrong for some reason. Try it out youself (create a ignore.ini file with this [my] content)

Hope this helps. This is all I can provide. Good luck fixing the bug!

You are totally right about that, its fixed, but the syntax in your ignore file is wrong, it should be:



etc and not just the nick.

Ps. Excellent debugging work and bug report!
