I'm currently using MUSCHclient to connect to an IRC channel, and now I'm trying to get color to work. Any suggestions on how to get the client to recognize the colors, or convert IRC to ANSI?

Well, I'd say (as I often do lately): filter packets in OnPluginPacketReceive, replacing IRC codes with their ANSI equivalents. I don't know anything about the specifics of IRC though, do you have any links to the specification or something of that kind?

How about taking a look at packet-debug. It'll let you know what you need to match on.

However, the second google link comes up with this:
http://www.visualirc.net/tech-attrs.php

Which seems like what you're looking for.

Yeah, but I honestly don't know how to script it.
The most advanced stuff I've ever worked on are triggers, and the most advanced script I've ever done I can't even remember how I did, and it was just a counter.

Scripting it isn't much of a problem, but I am too lazy to go find an IRC server, connect to it and log some output. So turn on Packet Debug (under File menu, I think) and log for awhile, then post it back here. That way we can see what the codes look like and compare them with the specs (which don't make much sense without concrete examples).

Then you have to un-maximize your main world (since it doesn't come to front) and you'll see it. Just copy/paste (or save to a file, or whatnot).

Check if this works. It's supposed to go into a text file named "IRC2ANSI.xml" saved in your default Plugins folder, and then needs to be installed through File->Plugins

Oh and the script didn't work. It turned all the text black and bled. I'm not sure if it's even possible to convert them efficiently, if at all, considering the variations. I think you'd have to know IRC and Mushclient scripting inside and out to actually be able to do it.

What's the address and port of the server you are using? And the whole procedure of connecting to it? I'll check what the problem is with it.

This version works, although not perfectly. The main problem is that IRC defines 16 default colours, while ANSI only has 8, so it looks awkward sometimes. Originally I tried making up for the missing 8 colours using bold, but that looks even uglier. I'll try to do it with MXP if I have time later.

Why uglier? Because Nick incorrectly set it to use 'bold' as both a color and font attribute? If so, just turn off the setting for that. Imho, its not the behaviour it should be producing anyway and it *is* ugly.
