[Solved] Problem with IRC

by ScorchedFalcon » Post

I'm having trouble setting up the IRC mod, I wanted to test it on singleplayer like I do with all the mods I download; Yet I keep getting an error saying I need to add the mod to something called "secure.trusted_mod" in some settings. So I looked into it and found that I was supposed to change something in minetest.conf, but I can't find this "setting" anywhere. I honestly have no idea what I'm supposed to do, or if it's just not working because I'm trying to run it on single player, but any help is appreciated.

Create the setting and add the mod as needed.

I have two minetest conf files, and I tried writing this down in both of them, nothing happened. To be more specific I wrote down: type: string secure.trusted_mods = irc, so if there's some mistake here I have no idea what it is.

Why do you have two files? Where are those located?

Actually I don't know the mod, but is the mod name correct?

Technically it's irc-master, but I assume you know that the "master" part has to be removed.

I have minetest.conf and minetest.conf.example. They're located in the main folder, where everything else is. Bin, Textures, Mods etc...

minetest.conf is the file you need to edit.
minetest.conf.example is a file of all the possible settings (with a basic description) you can use in your minetest.conf

Is there a pound sign # in front of the entry you made in minetest.conf?

Code: Select all

# secure.trusted_mods = irc
If so delete it. Just a thought.

I removed the # but it did nothing. Thanks for the suggestion though.

So I've been looking into old IRC topics and I've found that supposedly IRC doesn't work for windows, which of course is the type of computer I'm trying to run this on. If so, is there any alternitive to making an IRC channel?

Turns out all I needed to do was add the command to minetest.conf while I had minetest shut down. Thanks to Krock and enpuland for helping me fix this.
