    Don't double-post. I don't use mirc so I can't help you but give the others a little time to give you an answer to your question. It's only been half an hour since you asked for help.

    In order to get onto the #gbatemp channel, yes, it must be efnet.

    If you are talking about the direct connection to users to get the roms, that's to prevent people from tying up their server so other people can use it too. So you need to get what you want quickly.

    I'm afraid I don't know what you're talking about in your first post; maybe someone can answer it. I hope that clears up some stuff.

    When in doubt, check the faq.

    OK, just to make sure:
    1)Make sure it is EFnet.
    2)Make sure you're typing in #GBATemp. You say #GBATemp1, and I'm not sure if that was a typo or not.

    Again, when in doubt, check the faq.

    Does that help?

    And all your settings are right? Hmm.... I think you might need to wait until the major IRC people get on. Sorry I can't help out anymore.

    Hmm, could it be a timeout problem? i.e. You've been idle too long and mIRC logs out?

    I think that's because there's too many people using the GBAtemp channel at the time. This happens quite often, you just need to be more patient and a little lucky until you finally get there. Well, that what I think as I never use it myself. [​IMG]

    30 seconds of idle time is the limit you can stay in the fserver.
    but they are enough to queue the files you need. when you queued a file o files, you don't need to stay in the fserver chat anymorem so you can exit it (but stay in the channel!) then wait for the files

    When I downloaded Mirc it was a shareware version and it said after 30 days I have to pay to use it. What did u do after your 30 days? isnt there another place to get mirc thats not for 30 days?

    On temporary hiatus.
    Just reinstall it, if that's the problem.

    And I got a full, working, non-demo version from mirc.com, of all places...

    Umm.... I dunno.... I did that too, but I haven't gotten any warning or anything. [​IMG] Have you?

    EDIT: Actually, now that I think about it, I might have gotten the full version too.
