Bots get boring...

Feb 6, 1999, 4:11am
Actually in AWGames, we already have a bot that does it. You can even set
boundaries so you get only the objects you want. :)

BallBot

Nov 7, 1998, 2:49pm
So far it just respondes to all gestures. Today we're gonna change all the
gesture1's on the avs to kick and have the bot only accept those. And it
will also only let people kick it if they're within 1 meter of it. :)

RC Version

Nov 9, 1998, 12:00am
Hi,
You're using a differnt version of the dll than the header and lib files.
My advice would be to download the SDK from the SDK webpage and just
recompile using that, then use the aw.dll file you downloaded :)

Problem with AW_EVENT_EJECT ?

Nov 29, 1998, 7:20pm
Hi,
Trying to program an eject handler into my bot, i discovered
AW_EVENT_EJECT seems to be missing... I get the error
'AW_EVENT_EJECT' : undeclared identifier when I try to compile, and I
can't find AW_EVENT_EJECT in the header file... Any ideas?

Need help to build a AW Universe

Because SDK bots require 2.1 universes which aren't released yet. There's
only two 2.1 universes, one being AW.

Actually I think it would be better if he provided a link to the page with the bot instead of
uploading the bot to his site (especially snce he did not ask us before uploading our bots to
his site).

Totally confused about object query

Hi,
First of all, rc is an integer. You should not confuse people by comparing
it to 'true' or 'false' since those are for booleans. In if statements, C/C++
considers something 0 or NULL as false and anything else as true. == is the
comparison operator and = is the assignment operator. What

if (rc = aw_query (0, 0, sequence))

really means is this:

rc = aw_query (0, 0, sequence);
if (rc != 0) {...}.

However, it is a lot easier to put all in one line. Also, for integers in C,
it was still if (!rc) which would be true if rc was 0. ~ is the bitwise not
operator, you shouldn't confuse this with the logical not operator (!).

That would work, however you could not tell which error occurred. You could
just tell than an error occurred.

Passing a Variable to a url

Aug 10, 2001, 5:51pm
Hi,
Don't forget that when using CString in an variable argument list, you
have to explicitly cast it to LPCTSTR. For example:
targetURL.Format("www.somehost.somedomain/somepage.asp?somevariable=%s",
(LPCTSTR) urlParm);

Passing a Variable to a url

Aug 10, 2001, 6:59pm
Hi,
I checked the docs to be sure, and they say:

CString::Format
When you pass a character string as an optional argument, you must cast it
explicitly as LPCTSTR.


CString::operator LPCTSTR
// If the prototype of a function is known to the compiler,
// the LPCTSTR cast operator may be invoked implicitly
lstrcpy(sz, strSports);

// If the prototype isn't known, or is a va_arg prototype,
// you must invoke the cast operator explicitly. For example,
// the va_arg part of a call to sprintf() needs the cast:

sprintf(sz, "I think that %s!\n", (LPCTSTR) strSports);

bingobot and awgames bots

May 4, 2001, 6:21pm
Sure he does ;) The reason that we haven't released the BallBot used in
AWGames is because it is difficult to set up the boundaries and goals with
the current
implementation. However, I believe HamFon's publicly released BallBot does
support this.
