Operation

Dialogs

The dialog, or menu, is accessed by selecting Logos from the commands menu at the top of your mIRC window.

There are 3 tabs on the dialog, Info, Bibles and Skin. Here is a little detail on each:

Info

This is just some basic info on Logos. The links and e-mail address are clickable, but this section isn't really that exciting. Please do read it though ;-)

Bibles

This section allows you to install Bibles once you have downloaded a Bible .zip file, it also gives you some basic information on the Bibles you have installed.

The installation section talks through how to install a new Bible.

In this section you can also deactivate an installed Bible, if you select a Bible from the Bible list and uncheck the checkbox labeled "active" then when you click the OK button that Bible will no longer function until you go back to the dialog and recheck the "active" checkbox again.

If you deactivate all of the Bibles or click OK when you have no Bibles installed a warning will appear in the active window in mIRC (or the status window if none are active)

In a future version I will make the "Uninstall Bible" button work, and it will remove all of the files for that Bible from your computer, with due warning of course :-)

Skin

This rather handy tool allows you to change the appearence of Logos fairly simply. There are five colours that can be changed to any of the 16 different colours mIRC supports.

To change the colour scheme you simply change the numbers in the drop down menus, the number corresponds to the colour chart on the right. It really is simple!

Clicking the "Preview" button will pop up a preview window with 3 lines, showing you what the colour scheme looks like.

Clicking the "Reset" button will return the colours to what they were when you opened up the dialog box.

Clicking the "Default" button will return the colours to their default values.

Clicking the "OK" button commits any changes you have made to the colour scheme, but you can always return to the default scheme easily, so don't worry if you set it to a horrid colour scheme by mistake.

A word about the OK and Cancel buttons:
They apply to all of the tabs on the dialog box, so if you change something on the Bibles tab and click the OK button on the Info tab, the changes will be saved. This is important to remember if you changed the colour scheme at all, because you could easily click on the OK button on a different tab and it would save the new colour scheme without you realising.

Commands
Command Description
!bibles (also !version or !versions) This command lists the installed Bibles to any user in a private message window.
!version book chapter:verse This is the basic verse request. The version is the abbreviation for the Bible version, the book can either be the full or abbreviated book name, and the chapter:verse is just that. e.g.

!kjv john 3:16
!bbe rev 22:1
!version book chapter:verse-verse This command is exactly as above, but for multiple verses, the script will produce up to five verses at once (requests for more than five are cut off after five verses are displayed) e.g.

!nasb gen 1:1-5
!version find phrase This will search the whole Bible for the exact phrase, and will tell you how many results there were and give you the first 50 verses found. There is a cut-off of 1000 results, more than that and the search will stop. e.g.

!nkjv find Jesus
!version find area phrase This is the same as above but searches a specific area of the Bible, either the new or old testaments, or a single book. The testaments are selected with OT (old testament) and NT (new testament), and the books are selected by the book name or standard abbreviation. e.g.

!niv find OT babylon
!kjv find NT jesus
!nasb find Matthew miracle
!nkjv find gen word

Because of the individual book searches unfortunately you cannot search the entire Bible text for any book names or abbreviations, i.e.

!kjv find ezra

this will produce 0 results. You can get around this issue however by searching an individual testament for the book name, i.e.

!kjv find OT ezra
!kjv find NT ezra
