Who made Visual IRC?

Visual IRC 2 is actually the third product in the MeGALiTH's Visual IRC line:

  • Visual IRC (16-bit) - Released in 1995, written by MeGALiTH. This program had many built-in features, but it was also scriptable with VPL (ViRC Programming Language), the predecessor to ViRCScript and Versus.
  • Visual IRC '96 (a.k.a. Visual IRC '97, Visual IRC '98) - Released in 1996, written by MeGALiTH. This was the first 32-bit version of ViRC. Many of the features that were built into 16-bit ViRC were handled by the default script in ViRC '96. ViRC '98 contained some code contributed by Mr2001, particularly enhancements to the ViRCScript engine.
  • Visual IRC 2 - Released in 2001, written by Mr2001 (just a coincidence!). This version's Versus scripting language is based on ViRCScript, but internally it has been almost totally rewritten. (In fact, ViRC 2 only shares a few hundred lines of code with ViRC '98.)
