    I am actively developing a fundamentally simple IRC script which allows people to moderate a server from the comfort of their own channel (with tcprcon, when it is finished.) Currently it has basic API calls to check up on players and servers and navigation around IRC.

    This is primarily inspired by the script used on Frosty Trunk for calling admins or more players to the server. It's designed for designated server channels for use by mods & users alike.

    Development is at https://github.com/tmewett/kirb and official page and downloads are at http://www.mewett.co/kirb. New features are always being added, as a rule I never submit commits with runtime errors to the master branch so it should be stable, but don't always do extensive bug testing (if you want one that works, visit the downloads page)

    Do not use bots on official #kag channels!

    I'd like to mention - DO NOT USE any bots on official KAG IRC channels. Thank you. I'll be writing IRC rules (or I'll see someone to write them) and placing them on a forums soonish.

    Ah, thanks for posting that Furai. Will edit the OP.

    Im not too IRC friendly, can you explain why not?


    Also, this is pretty cool. i know some other games have something like this (it might be just like this, i dont know becuase i dont use IRC for anything than to ask someone on it a quick question) and i hope this will work with the upcoming KAG 1.0

    It will be one big spam heaven if you have multiple bots on a channel.

    Every channel has a different purpose, if you want a channel for your server you can easily make one. #kag not a channel to have some kind of server bot in as it's not the channel's purpose.

    I'm hoping after this update that tcprcon will be finalised and working on Windows, then you could moderate a server straight from IRC

    Yes but it's more about windows that it's not possible.
    Just get linux on Oracle VM or something.

    I know how to work around it, but it should be possible :)
