bot server

Jun 5, 2000, 5:22pm
I agree 100% with you, Eep. I currently host five worlds and four bots on one Win 98 machine over a DSL connection. It would be much easier using a "bot server" then having three Preston's and one Xelagbot running...

-Builderz

[View Quote] > Since XelaG doesn't seem like he's going to release his bot server, I'll make a request here. I want to run bots remotely alongside world servers. Now while Linux bot servers may not be possible at this time, Win9x/NT ones should be. It would be nice to be able to control the bots through a GUI (like Faber's Preston's would be good) but have the actual bot run with the world server. Ideally the bots should be integrated INTO the world server and/or AW itself but the bot server will have to suffice for now. Any takers?

Bot Hosting

Jul 16, 2000, 11:43am
I will be offering commercial bot/world hosting in the next few weeks. I'm currently discussing a deal with JKMT to be their official
bot hoster. =) About how much RAM you would need to host bots...it depends on which bots you are going to host, if they use any scripts
or have automated tasks, and the complexity of those scripts/tasks. Prestons, Xelagbots, Magsbots, Hambots, custom bots, etc. all take
up different amounts of RAM. In my experience, the bare MINIMUM amount of RAM you would need to host a decent amount of bots would be
96MB (but 128MB is recommended). The more, the better. Also, try not to buy Generic type of RAM. Get good quality memory from a well
known source. You could have 1GB of RAM in your hosting machine, but will it be stable enough to run 24/7, or will it keep crashing all
of the time?

On the pricing issue, I would think that $3-$5 per month per bot is the BASIC rate you should charge. Of course, it would depend on what
type of bot you would be hosting. A simple bot that greets people when they enter a world would be much less expensive then a full blown
paintball bot. Another thing to point out...will you configure the bot for the user, or will they send/transfer it to you
pre-configured? What type of connection do you have? 28.8k? 33.6k? 56k? Cable? Satellite? DSL? T1? Higher of lower? You could probably
get by on a 56k modem, if you stayed connected to the net almost 24/7 (and used a "keep alive" tool to ping your ISP). I know of one
person that hosts about three worlds over a 56k modem and (ironically) doesn't have too much lag

Another thing to point out...if you yourself can not host bots, then look into telnet and/or shell accounts. They are relatively
inexpensive for the amount of space you can get. I have yet to come across any good, free shell accounts, though. I believe Realm-Corp
(http://www.realm-corp.net/) uses a Linux shell account to host all of their bots/worlds.

Finally, if you plan to be connected to the 'Net for an extended amount of time (or 24/7), make sure you have all of the latest security
patches for the OS you wish to use. I would also highly suggest that you run a firewall on the hosting machine (if you don't have one
already). Visit the world Russ (which I also host ;o) for some good "Anti-Hacking" tools. As you can see, there are certainly a lot of
things to think about before getting into hosting. =)

TrekkerX, I regret that you feel Stuff-X is "evil" and that you get the
impression that we seem to think we are better than others. Let me just
say I have never once said "Stuff-X is better than AWC, ImaTowns,
Synergy Corp., and [insert another popular AW hosting provider here] put
together" or tried to personally slander another hosting company. How
exactly is Stuff-X "acting better" than "everyone else?" Could you
please give me specific reasons or actions to back up your opinion? I
don't wish to start a flame war with you, I would just like an honest
answer to my question.

I believe that you may be confusing Lanezeri's attitude with the
attitude of Stuff-X. I admit Lanezeri is a very outspoken person, but I
have no control over what he chooses to post in these newgroups nor what
the content of those postings are. The sole reason I hired him was to
create bots for Stuff-X and he currently has the title of "Lead Bot
Programmer." I look over each and every line of the coding of the bots
that he creates and make any modifications to it that I see fit (that is
why no bots are publicly available yet). I didn't hire him to get into
fights in the newsgroups and I am not responsible for his words or
actions.

Unfortunately, if Lanezeri posted a rude or offensive comment in these
newsgroups and he has "Stuff-X" somewhere in his signature, some may
think that it gives a negative tone or feel towards the Stuff-X company
as a whole. Let me just mention that *I* am listed as the "Public
Relations" person on the Stuff-X staff page (located at
http://www.stuffx.com/aw/staff.html) and Lanezeri is *not* (nor any
other Stuff-X staff member). What he or any other staff members of
Stuff-X may say in a posting, in Active Worlds, in e-mail, etc. may not
reflect the opinions of Stuff-X as a company and Stuff-X may not agree
with those comments. For an official Stuff-X response or stance on an
issue, you should ask/contact *me* and *me* only.

Lane, when I said the sole reason I hired you was to create bots for
Stuff-X, I meant that in a professional sense. That is what you do (or
did, if you wish to resign) at Stuff-X. I did not mean that to come out
as an insult towards you, Lane. I know that you have helped create Web
pages and have done other things in the past for Stuff-X, and I very
much appreciate that, but I have never asked you to do those things (I
interpreted you as doing those things voluntarily). I consider you to be
the best staff member Stuff-X has/had. I just do not agree with
everything you say here in the newsgroups. Personally, I consider you to
be a good friend of mine. We have known each other for a very long time
and have been through a lot together.

I only purchased two bots of yours, Lane. The Bank Bot and the Tag Bot.
The other bots you have made I have not yet purchased, but was planning
to purchase from you in the future. I own a copy of the source code to
the bots, Lane, but you still own the original copyright to that source
code. I was planning on looking at the source code of the bots and
making tiny modifications (change a line of text here, an option here,
etc). That is what I meant by editing the bots. Your username and/or
real name would appear in the About section of all bots and you would be
listed on the Stuff-X staff page (as you are now). I also told you that
I was considering to pay you a certain percentage of commission on the
bots that I wished to sell commercially on the Stuff-X Web site. I did
not say when this would happen, since I myself don't know when I will
get a chance to look at the source code.

You say: "Well since I was only hired to make bots.. I don't want to
work for Stuff-X." Well then, why did you take up the job in the first
place? If you would like to resign from Stuff-X, so be it. However, in
future communication, I politely request that you speak to me in private
regarding this matter, and not post here in the newsgroups just yet.

I'm not quite sure. I never actually had the need to use this feature of

to help you get started. I'm sure it wouldn't take too much work to make
your own custom script to do what you want, though. Yes, I agree it IS
easier to set this up in Preston than in the Xelagot.

Yea, I used to host about seven or eight of the things for JKMT when
they were still around. I, too, have no idea what happened to JKMT. Sado
was the original programmer of a program called the BotTool, and the
DeerBot was a script or add-on to the BotTool. I believe it was
programmed in C or C++ and the scripts were made in JavaScript. Sado's
website is located at http://bottool.8m.com/.

Multiple Avatars Using One Bot Session?

Feb 23, 2001, 7:47pm
Has anyone figured out a way to create and control multiple avatars (in
Visual Basic or C++) that count as only ONE bot against your bot limit?
This could be used to create and control a flock of birds or a group of
deer or other animals. Sado's DeerBot could do this, but each
animal/avatar had to be logged in separately, going against your bot
limit. I am also aware of ImaBot's BirdBot (located at
http://www.imabot.com/birdbot.htm), but I am looking for a bot with more
control.

Well, our P-10, P-20, & P-30 prices with five simultaneous users is
cheaper than what ImaTowns charges per month. ;o) Many of our worlds
also cost a lot less than what Activeworlds.com, Inc. charges per year.
Also, if you can afford to buy a P-100 with twenty simultaneous users
for $1150.00 USD, then you can afford to pay $432.00 USD yearly to have
it hosted. =P

Seriously though, I know some of the prices seem high. I'll take a good
look at them and will probably lower most of them soon.

XeonBot Build 4 Released

Jul 8, 2003, 6:13pm
The bot has a nice, uncluttered interface. It reminds me of the Preston.
However, I suggest you put the bot's commands somewhere on your site
instead of posting them here in the NGs. Also, how is your RPG bot
coming along? That looks interesting, too.

Now, as I look at XeonBot's features, I really don't see anything new or
overly exciting that other bots can't already do. I know you got some
insults from others here in the NG, Richard, and I hope this doesn't
insult you, but I have to ask: why did you make the XeonBot in the first
place? As a learning experience (that's a great reason)? To try and
become popular overnight with some AW citizens (bad reason)? To help
others and give an alternative to those that had problems with other
bots (another good reason)?

virus alert (cross-posted to all groups)

Feb 20, 2004, 3:23pm
Are you sure it is really coming from AWI and not someone else's
computer? The other recent e-mail worms spoofed the "from" address of
the e-mails they sent out.

For example, let's say that I did not have the worm and all of my
anti-virus signatures were up to date. However, one of my friends had
*my* address in *their* address book and *they* get infected with the worm.

Now, that worm looks through my friend's address book and sees that *my*
address is there. So the worm decides to use it and sends out mail using
*my* (not their) address as the sender. Even though my system is totally
nice and secure, uneducated people will think *I'm* the one sending the
worm, when in reality it is from another computer that is just forging
the sender's address.

Look at the e-mail you supposedly got from AW and post the headers here.
We can then tell if it really did some from them or not.
