SDK 3.0 and Borland C++Builder 5

Apr 7, 2000, 3:11pm
I use Borland C++ 5.0 (not builder :o) ) and had this problem with the
..lib file downloaded there too, cause it's a VC++ .lib file (if I remember
well) which is in a different format from borland's... I downloaded another
..lib file, made for Borland, somewhere in a link the SDK forum... but it
was the 2.2 version... Besides I'd like to know how to rebuild it
yourself...
since someone has had to have done it for the 2.2 ver (thanks very much
by the way, that saved me a lot of time !) there must be a way to do so
from the standard files you download ... but I really don't know how :o(

Could anyone teach me?

Apr 13, 2001, 9:01pm
You're not going to learn anything if you don't invest into it...
If you don't buy books, you'll probably get nowhere
I started programming in Borland C++ when I was 13, I just bought at least 5 books and read them... I wouldn't have learnt the
language if I hadn't... books are the best way to go, along with a lot of practice... There are probably other ways, but you won't
learn as fast...

First Bot, help please

Oct 17, 2001, 4:05pm
As far as i know, you can't pass as an argument to a function, a method that comes from a class. it has to be a straight C-style
function that's not embedded in a class.
if you have to have it in a class, you could use the function just as a wrapper to your class method if the class is global, like in

void event_avatar_add()
{
Avatars.Add();
}

Another Non-SDK Related VB Question

Nov 4, 2001, 1:53pm
I don't know VB at all, but I've looked up the API calls you need on MSDN
First you need to do an EnumWindows -> http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q183/0/09.ASP
The EnumWindows function should be OK as I guess the window you want is a top-level window, else you should use EnumChildWindows...
So in the EnumWinProc function in their example, you don't need to go farther than ' see the Windows Class and Title for
each top level Window , and you can just compare your window title with WinTitle. if it's the right one, you can use the
SetFocus function (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/winui/keybinpt_8yb7.asp) on its window handle,
then use the SendInput function (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/winui/keybinpt_7id0.asp) to send
the Enter Key, then return False for the enumeration to stop.

Not saying that MSVC++ sucks, but saying that it's superior to any other windows compiler is a bit too much :P

RD, I don't believe you're right about the initial impact of a bot & all...
For example, jey said in this thread that there had already been a slot bot released sometime ago but it's long forgotten now...
Besides, if the bot really had such impact and everyone used it, it would mean it was still pretty cool, and makaveli would be proud
of having his bot used by all, so I don't see why he would want to try and avoid that...

Apr 19, 2001, 7:18pm
Sorry, but I have to strongly disagree on this. I am sure they've never even thought about letting the users choose the background
they see in a world on an individual basis, simply because it's not the concept of activeworlds, and would ruin the ambiance of a
lot of worlds, and NOT for profit or something.
I had never thought about changing the background that I see in a world while others would see another one. The concept of
Activeworlds is to allow people who use the browser and pay a small fee or no fee, to visit worlds made and designed by those who
paid a higher fee, the worldbuilders. So being able to change your own background seems totally out of question to me, and is
definitely NOT something that should be allowed in the browser. It's a feature I would NOT like to see, even for free, as it would
limit the ability for worldbuilders to create an immersive and realistic world.

I'm sure they never thought someone would consider buying a world just to see another background image in his browser. Why do you
want so badly to change your background image? (no offense, just a question... because I don't really understand why you seem to
make this matter so important and are even willling to pay for it)

The "NOT for profit or something" was referring to the fact that I'm sure they're not preventing people from choosing their own
background just for the profit of making it a paying feature. (I just found this sentence confusing when rereading it, so I
clarified this here :o) )

Fox Mc Cloud

Wouldn't it be cool if...

Apr 20, 2001, 3:46am
Now I understand your point. I think the problem comes from the fact that AlphaWorld is sooooooo much bigger than all (or most ? I
don't think there are other worlds that big but not sure) the other worlds, and as such has a lot of different themes depending on
the area you're visiting... So the background can't fit each one of those themes... It's another matter for the other worlds : most
have a clearly definite theme and their background is chosen accordingly, so there would be no reason to change it... if it's not
well chosen, that's up to the world owner to fix it.

But I still think your idea of changing it just for your browser by changing a "background" field in the options would not be the
way to go... if what you want is to have the right background according to the area you're visitng in Alphaworld, then I guess a
cool new feature would be to have something like a new "background" action, which would change your own background when triggered...
or to find a way to be able to define different backgrounds depending on what area you're visiting.
The difference with your vision is that you are finding the background of a certain place not to fit correctly the scenery of
whoever built it... and you want to fix that yourself. But it should not be your job to do it : it's up to the world owner to design
his world accordingly, or would be up to the builder of a certain place in AW... if it was possible to change the background like I
described earlier.

By the way, the "background" field you saw in the world options cannot be changed by everyone, because when it's changed the
background changes for everyone in the world, and you wouldn't want everyone to be able to change your bakcground :)

Apr 20, 2001, 3:53am
Just something else to add : I don't think you would even be pleased wiith the feature you'd get when purchasing a world : paying
the 80$ fee does NOT let you change your background wherever you are. It lets you change your background in your own world, and
that's all. As I understand it, you wanted to be able to change it in AlphaWorld... (if it's not AW then you could ask the world
owner to change it..). you will NEVER be allowed to do that, and your problem seems to be more of a feature that does not exist in
the ActiveWorlds software than a fee problem.
Of course, you can ask for new features, nothing wrong with that, but I don't think your discussion about the prices is right,
because the feature is not developped in the software (unless by using a local path, which would do the job, although a lot too
complex, but this feature was clearly not developped for that goal)
