I have recently started teaching myself Java and I tend to learn best with an actual project to work on, having been a streamer in the past a chat bot/client seemed a logical idea (it’s something I know and also know the limitations I’ve found in other bots).
I got the bot connected and sending and receiving messages. Everything seems to work fine when the bot is responding to messages from other users(Posts messages to a simple text box), but there are no events fired when messages are posted from the bot account (using the bots chat box within Twitch. My assumption would be that this is because the IRC server isn’t seeing a need to send a response to the same account that sent the message, is this the case or is there something else I’m missing ?(highly likely given how new I am to this)
If the server is not sending the responses, what would be the correct way to go about posting messages from the bot in the text box within the client (using both the client itself to input messages and also the twitch chat window). So far all this has been achieved using the PircBotX library.
Thank you in advance for any help you guys can give, and if I have missed any information or posted this in the wrong place, please let me know.
