Gravity for Bots?

Dec 15, 1999, 9:22pm
You see, in the AW browser, there are set rules for the walking of avatars.
You can only go so fast, and you stop when you hit an object (unless you use
shift). These do not apply to bots.

Well if it is very important (this may slow your bots down significantly tho)
and if you write these bots yourself (this should work in script bots too, like
Xelagots and Hambots) you could somehow detect all the objects within, say, one
meter of your bot, then (depending on ur programming language/scripting bot)
write some way of detecting the objects around the bot so when it moves it
won't go thru anything but moves around it, although this would almost require
an artificial intelligence. Also this would be used for stairs, if it were a
stair object it could know this ahead of time, but you would have to know the
world very well, like if in AW you would program your bot so when it hits a
stair04m from the front it goes slantways.

And to slow your bot down (because they go at some hyperdrive speed) you could
make it so when it moves somewhere it doesnt go straight there, but it goes in
increments, like insead of saying "move from 0n 0w to 10n 0w" and it going
straight there at super speed, it could parse that into somethingn like "move
from 0n0w to 1n 0w" then "wait a half a second" then "move from 1n 0w to 2n 0w"
and so on.

Hmm this is a good idea I wil have to try it myself...

Learning C++

What kind of C++ do u have?

I got Visual C++ 6, and later I got a book called "Visual C++ 6 In =
Record Time." That was a great book.

Of course, there is always the more general "Teach yourself C++ in 21 =
days" or "24 hours" or whatever, but that is C++, and none of the IDE's.

Try a search ok Amazon.com for your IDE, like if u have Borland C++ 2, =
search for that.

Hope this helps :-)

SDK 3.0 and Borland C++Builder 5

Apr 6, 2000, 9:24pm
Hello :-) The only reason I am crossposting is that this kinda concerns
both broups.

I use Borland C++Builder 5 Standard, and just today d/l'ed AWSDK 3.0 BETA.
I wrote a simple test program that does nothing but initialize the API then
exits. Everything compiles fine, but when it tries to link, I get:

(Linker Error) 'C:\PROGRAM FILES\BORLAND\CBUILDER5\LIB\AW.LIB' contains
invalid OMF record, type 0x21 (possibly COFF)

1. What does THAT mean?

2. How do I fix it?

SDK 3.0 and Borland C++Builder 5

Apr 6, 2000, 10:17pm
I got to thinking that I oughta test it to see if it is a 3.0 bug or an
overall SDK bug.

I downloaded the old 2.2 SDK, recompiled it, and I get the same message,
therefore it is the SDK overall. Are there any aw SDKs avilable to us
Borland programmers?

new bot? good idea? or not?

Nov 18, 2000, 1:10pm
Like Twist said, its more the AW browser that needs the plugins, and besides, if most people knew
how to use the SDK which would let their program plug into your bot, they would be more likely to
write their own bots, and the Xelagot and HamBot users probably would rather stick to scripting.

Bad idea in my opinion.

Nov 19, 2000, 1:51pm
Well I can understand if its for your personal purposes -- thats actually a neat idea. "Download
this large platform, and then use my building blocks to build upon it!" The ever popular (and
better than Rational) Together (www.togethersoft.com) is built off of this idea -- and I do believe
there is an open SDK for it.

So, you could make your own platformbot with the building blocks to save yourself time and if anyone
else wants to add on to it as well give them the SDK.

A while back I tried VB and hated it. There was no power and EVERYTHING was limited. Except the UI
designer thingie was incredibly cool!!! Tried Visual C++. It had all the power but a weak UI
designer. That really turned me off from it.

Then, I found Borland C++Builder. It has all the power of C++ AND a VERY STRONG (maybe even better)
UI thing than VB. Try it -- you can get the trial at www.borland.com.

What I am saying is that yes, using C++ you CAN make a UI in 5 minutes (noteI didn't say seconds --
in VB you cant do it in 5 seconds)

Plus VB just overall suxks (and thats my proferssional fact)

"Hearing" radius

Nov 5, 2000, 11:51pm
Hello!

This seems the best place to ask this question -- does anyone know what the "hearing radius" is for
AW? (In other words, how far away do you have to be from a person not to hear em anymore?) Also is
it a circle or a square in the way its measured?

Thanks a load :-)

Thanks -- and thank God and Roland too that they are square cuz if they were round I would have to
fit a square into a circle -- and to think people complain about converting polygons to triangles
LOL! anyway thank you very much :-)

AW SDK C# port

Dec 2, 2000, 9:38pm
<READ THIS FIRST>Okay after reading this over I just want to make it clear that there is nothing
personal against Andon -- he is just one of the unfortunately millions of programmers who will be
lead astray by this revolutionary new idea which Microsoft has completely stolen from Sun
Microsystems. Also, the first part of this is basically telling exactly what was stolen from whom.
If you don't want to take the time to read the whole thing, Please scroll down to the bottom and
read my note to C++ programmers thinking about upgrading to C#. Thank you. We now return you to
your regularly scheduled rant post...

Damn, I was afraid it would happen. Microsoft can finally legally become a monopoly with this
fucking stupid "subscription software" idea of theirs. Well anyway -- thanks for the opportunity to
give everyone the REAL facts in C#!! Here it goes..........................

| + The closest thing to 100% OOP (Object Oriented Programming) I have ever
| seen... It goes so far into Object Orientation that it actually gets rid of
| Global Objects and Macros!

Hmm... Apparantly you have never seen Java. Ever since Java 1.0, there are no global objects or
methods or anything and Macros... the entire preprocessor is eliminated.

| + New file format (.cs)... This file format is like a combination Header /
| Implementation file. You define and actually implement the entire class
| within this file rather than having to use a header and then using #include
| in your implementation file.

*ahem* again... see Java... Microsoft is such a wannabe. I wouldn't be suprised to see exact
duplicates of Java's source in C#'s.


| + Memory Garbage Collector... Appropriately named, this feature takes RAD
| (Rapid Application Development) to new levels by completely automating all
| memory allocation, etc... This sounds like the greatest thing since sliced
| bread until you realize the way this is done for the most part is by getting
| rid of pointers!!! Use of pointers will flag your code as "Unsafe" to the C#
| compiler and it will completely disable the Garbage Collector allowing you
| to completely screw up your stack and heap (just as easily as you could in C
| and C++).

You are kidding me, right??? Come on Microsoft... why not think up something ORIGINAL?????

Hmm alrighty... well ok so as far as I can tell the whole damn programmign language is a ripoff of
Java, amongst other things! Lets take a look at this one:

| + New variations of some of the old loop keywords, such as ForEach <--- I
| have yet to find a use for that one, but that's not to say it's useless.

Oh foreach is BEAUTIFUL!!! Basically, lets give an example. You give foreach an array, and it
loops through each cell until the end and you can manipulate stuff with this information. Yes this
is so useful -- when I write PERL SCRIPTS I use it all the time.

| + C# can be used to write programs for ANY Microsoft OS other than DOS.

Sorry, I just had to pick this one out. What an origional idea, making a programming language where
you can write software on all <b><i><u><blink><hey look here>MICROSOFT</blink></u></i></b> operating
systems. That is so nice of them to provide this convenience!! Hey heres a good idea: How about
make it work on ALL operating systems? Yeah! What an incredible thought! It could work on all
your OS'es too, but ALSO on things like Linux, Mac, Solaris,........ Microsoft: drive through,
champ!

A note to you C++ programmers who want to move to C#, please read this before you spend too much
money on something you can get for ABSOLUTELY 100% PERFECTLY IN EVERY WAY FREE. You probably want
to upgrade to C# because it is the "next step up" from C++. However, as with EVERY software product
that is EVER released (even I am not perfect) the first few versions are loaded down with bugs. We
will probably have to wait upwards of 5 years for Microsoft to work the kinks out of C# (and
inherantly YOUR software). C# is basically Java for Microsoft OSes. Why not get the real thing?
Why not go to http://java.sun.com/products and get Java? "But I don't have time to learn an
entirely new language," you say. Java's syntax is based on C++. That much is the same, and syntax
is 50% of learning a language. Also, think about this. In C#, everything is an object. There is
no more preprocessor. So forth and so on. You don't think you won't spend a good month or two
learning C# (thats about the time I spend learning the basics of Java -- and I had NEVER used C++
before.)? I guarantee you that you will. If you want more details on Java or its relation to C#
please feel free to E-Mail me at ticklejw at jtsoft.net. It might save you millions.

And beforw you ask, no, Sun is not paying me to type this (although if I sent it to them it mighe
get me a contract on a commercial ;-). Myself (Jeffrey W. Tickle) as well as JTSoft.net are not in
anyway associated with Sun Microsystems (besides the fact that we love their programming language),
and this is all based on my own research and experience.

Have a nice day and happy holidays :-)

More AW Newsgroups !

Dec 18, 2000, 12:21am
SaintlyMic EmailPlease try to refrain from posting messages that are 36KB in the future --
especially messages that COULD contain simple text (like this). If you want to promote your
website, you can do it subtly... check my signature for an example. Trust me, that ... thing ...
will make people probably actually steer clear from your site. Just suggestions :-)

Also, knowing AWCOM you can forget about havin your own newsgroup ;-) However, if anyone here DOES
know how to start a public usenet group I would like to know :-)

More AW Newsgroups !

Dec 18, 2000, 10:20pm
Hello...

| Thank you for your advise, John.
| My purpose was not to advertise.
| I'm new to posting News Messages.
| That's why I asked what I asked.

I'm cool with that :-)


| As I asked on my first posting . . .
| Where are the AW News Group Rules ?

Well, I don't know if there are any rules like for the groups as a whole,
but in the "Community" newsgroup, near the top, there is a message posted by
"Activeworlds.com, Inc." with the subject of "Community Charter." I guess
this has the closest thing there is to AW Newsgroup rules :-/

| | p.s. - I'm a fast learner, as you can see. : > )

:-)

| p.p.s. - God HAS created many steves . . .
| but, not after the fashion of Eve, LOL !

How true! :-)

I recommend Borland C++Builder. It is very visual (Ironically more so than
Microsoft's Visual C++ which is a little cheaper but in no way better
value), in several ways like VB and loads of fun to use, and easy to learn.
Took me about 3 months to get it down pat, and I already knew some C but
thats fairly easy too :-) I recommend Sams Teach Yourself Borland
C++Builder in 21 days fo learning.

new bot? good idea? or not?

Nov 18, 2000, 1:10pm
Like Twist said, its more the AW browser that needs the plugins, and besides, if most people knew
how to use the SDK which would let their program plug into your bot, they would be more likely to
write their own bots, and the Xelagot and HamBot users probably would rather stick to scripting.

Bad idea in my opinion.

Nov 19, 2000, 1:51pm
Well I can understand if its for your personal purposes -- thats actually a neat idea. "Download
this large platform, and then use my building blocks to build upon it!" The ever popular (and
better than Rational) Together (www.togethersoft.com) is built off of this idea -- and I do believe
there is an open SDK for it.

So, you could make your own platformbot with the building blocks to save yourself time and if anyone
else wants to add on to it as well give them the SDK.

A while back I tried VB and hated it. There was no power and EVERYTHING was limited. Except the UI
designer thingie was incredibly cool!!! Tried Visual C++. It had all the power but a weak UI
designer. That really turned me off from it.

Then, I found Borland C++Builder. It has all the power of C++ AND a VERY STRONG (maybe even better)
UI thing than VB. Try it -- you can get the trial at www.borland.com.

What I am saying is that yes, using C++ you CAN make a UI in 5 minutes (noteI didn't say seconds --
in VB you cant do it in 5 seconds)

Plus VB just overall suxks (and thats my proferssional fact)
