For the dialog that is shown above, fill it out as the following (be sure to replace it with your actual information):

Full Name: nicknameEmail Address: nickname@Nickname: nicknameAlternative: alt-nickname

Once completed, hit "OK".


To connect to SwiftIRC, type the following in the open window:

/server irc.swiftirc.net -j #PureWarfare

Useful Commands

/join #channel/part #channel message/msg nick message/notice nick message/mode #channel modes/kick # nick reason/hop

/helpop chmodes (this will give a list of settable channel modes)


To change the theme or colors, go to File > Colors, or press alt+k. The following dialog will pop up:


To change the font, go to File > Fonts. The following dialog will pop up:


To add or edit scripts, go to Tools > Scripts Editor, or press alt+r. The following dialog will pop up, and scripts are to be put in the white space. Once finished, press "OK" or go to File > Save As, and enter the filename to save it as. Also, make sure you are under the "remote" tab when adding scripts.

Include the auto-identify command

There is no "command" for that. Here's a script that is for auto identify and auto join of channels:


on *:START: {server irc.swiftirc.net}on *:CONNECT: {if ($me == NICKGOESHERE) && ($network == SwiftIRC) {.timer 1 1 ns id PASSGOESHERE.timer 1 3 join #Chan1,#Chan2,#Chan3,#Etc}}
