wrapping your name in <>’s in xchat

March 4, 2005

Alot of people have been switching to XChat for their IRC Client needs lately. One of the biggest complaints of the new xchat user has is the lack of < > characters around their name.

I have managed to figure out how to restore this functionality, and i guess i’ll let everyone know how they can do this.

1) In xchat, click “Settings” from the top menu bar, then go through the “Advanced” menu and click the option labeled “Text Events”

2) Scroll down slightly so you can see the event labeled “Channel Message”. Click this option.

3) In the text box for this option, replace whatever exists there with: “%C18%B%B$4<$1>%O%C18%O$t$2” . After you do that, hit the enter key, and then click “Save”

4) After that, scroll down until you see an event labeled “Private Message”. Select it, and enter this value: “%C28*%C29$3<$1>%C28*$t%O$2”, hit the enter key, and click “save” again

5) Scroll back down until you see an event labeled “Your Message”, Select it, and enter this value: “%C31%B%B$4<$1>%O$t%C30$2”, after that, hit your enter key, click “Save”, and close the “text events” dialog.

After you update the events, the new look won’t be applied to text which had already been returned in a channel window. But, all comments made after you save the text events will include <>’s around the person’s name.

By the way, you can find a non-shareware windows xchat version at Silverex.info .
