Question on Ult3.0.1 and IRC Services
« on: May 20, 2005, 05:51:56 pm »
I know that 3.0 is loosely based on the Bahamut protocol, but I've also read in the forums that there's no support between Ultimate 3.* and IRC Services.

Has that changed and I just haven't found the post?

TIA!

If you mean the original ircservices package by Andrew Church, I don't think it supports Ultimate's protocol. You can't use bahamut because Ultimate is no longer directly compatible with bahamut's protocol, because of added channel/user modes and some other modifications.

If you're looking for a services package that works similar to this, I suggest you have a look at anope (www.anope.org), which was indirectly based on ircservices and has full support for ultimate 3.x.

Thanks for the reply.  I've looked at anope; the only issue I have is that they don't seem to have any conversion program between Andrew's IRC Services 5.* and their latest version of Anope.

I'd *hate* to have to rebuild my database from scratch!

Again, thanks for the reply!

Epona (www.epona.org) services has a convertor for ircservices databases.

Code: [Select]
If you are switching from another services package that is listed there,
enter its associated number to be able to convert your old databases using
the given parameter on the command line the first time you launch Epona.
If no conversion is needed, type no.
    1) ircservices 4.4.x (using -is44)

(asked when configuring the source)

The databases converted by epona should work in anope aswell.

Tried that, and it didn't work when I ran the epona2anope converter.

Thanks for the help, tho.
