As far as I know tick history isn't available in MT4, I wrote something for MT5 but it's still let's call it "early stages".

You need to change the timeframe of the base chart a few (dozen) times so it can reinitialize after all the errors and it may or may not work.

It also write too much too often to disk and I don't know how to fix it, any help is appreciated.
