IRC to game chat does not work when a supybot command character is not set
Supybot has support for disabling command characters entirely and just mentioning the bot's nick when you want to control it:
(luaduck) config help reply.whenAddressedBy.chars (RSrv1) Determines what prefix characters the bot will reply to. A prefix character is a single character that the bot will use to determine what messages are addressed to it; *when there are no prefix characters set, it just uses its nick*. Each character in this string is interpreted individually; you can have multiple prefix chars simultaneously, and if any one of them is used as a prefix the bot will assume it is being addressed. (Current value: )
The standard Soap commands work absolutely fine in this mode - I can do RSrv1: apconnect and similar absolutely fine - but no chat from IRC is forwarded to the server. As soon as I enable a command character, forwarding starts working again. Any ideas?
