IRC has always been a common platform for the QW scene, so it's nice to have QW related functionality integrated into this platform. As an early christmas present to mIRC users I have merged a couple of my scripts into one and released it publically.This screenshot
displays an appreciation of what this script does. Further details in the full article.
ServeMe Message Catcher
The message catcher takes those .qw and .spam messages and puts them into dedicated windows instead of displaying them in the channels. You may post messages by typing them directly in the catcher windows, and if you get annoyed by certain users' messages you can put specific nicks in the ignore list.
If you already got a message catcher script that you prefer using, you can just disable this one in the menu which is reached by right-clicking in a channel etc
QW Launcher makes qw:// links clickable to launch your QW client and join the server. It has now been extended with a server monitor that opens when you right-click a qw:// link. The server monitor queries the QW server and instantly displays match status and player lists.

.Download & install instructions
Download the script here
To install it, put the script in your default mIRC scripts folder, example: %APPDATA%\mIRC\scripts
Then type /load -rs scripts\qwtools.mrc
and click yes when asked to run initialization commands. You will then be asked to select the file path to the QW client executable, that is needed to connect to servers without registered qw:// protocol and also to connect as a spectator.
Since my previous QW Launcher for mIRC
is included here aswell, the old QW Launcher script is automatically removed when installing this script.If you can't be arsed to find your mIRC folder, just put the script anywhere and then in mIRC open the script editor (alt+R), make sure you have the Remote tab selected, then select Load... in the File menu to browse to the script.Change logUpdate v1.11 / 2012-12-20
