HOW TO ADD ADMINS
Edit your ircadmins.ini (It will be created in /addons/amxmodx/configs after the first time you run the plugin. If you don't see it, make sure the plugin is properly installed and then restart or change map on the server, then check again.)
Make sure to put it in this format:
"username" "password" "flags" "unique id"
*Flags should be the same as users.ini or your amxbans admins config
*Unique ID is an arbitrary number (it can be anything you want), just make sure that no two admins have the same ID.
IMPORTANT: If your bot does not connect to the network, and you are sure you have all the settings right (Should work as long as you have the default cvars in amxx.cfg or Server.cfg), it means that your host is blocking the ports. This is common among gameserver providers now (More likely on the datacenter's end).
