the book I got mine (Borland C++ 4.01) in (which don't seem to run the SDK
sample proggie *humph*) was $34.95, I think... was packaged more like
software, in a software store, but inside was a book about C, and included
on the CD-ROM was PDF's of another book on C++... Never got around to
reading too much of either... but I can do 'hello world' and probably
something a bit more complicated (like writing a little calculator proggie
maybe) without too much trouble.

Help? :)

Sep 10, 1998, 7:50pm
Just FYI, I tried running the sample program with Borland C++ 4.01 (I know
precious little C - the basic stuff - slowly learning more) and it seems
it's having problems either finding the stuff in aw.h or in aw.dll - pops up
13 error messages saying stuff about the aw_xyz_abc calls... Does the
compiler have to be able to write 100% Windows 95 programs? cos this one
only goes as far as Win32 proggies... And yes, all the files from the SDK as
well as the .cpp file I have the sample proggie code in are in the same
directory (dumped them into F:\Active Worlds\sdk, if it matters).

oops just for clarity's sake, just checked and it's actually 4.02 :)

Bots get boring...

Feb 9, 1999, 11:37pm
Outlook Express: Tools | Options | Send, click Settings next to whichever
option you're using to post newsgroup messages... it only allows between 30
and 132 though, Eep - you'll have to put up with 76 from me for now :)

(yes, Netscrape sucks, and Microslop (as you call it) isn't much better)

Weather algorithm.

Feb 9, 1999, 11:39pm
probably the best way to do something like this would be with a special
account with a name such as "Weather" which all the clouds would be created
under... the account could then have ED and that way it could create clouds
everywhere. It would delete them and move them and all too of course :)

use your citizen number and your PRIVILEGE PASSWORD, like it says

what about an IRC channel ?

Oct 5, 1998, 7:30pm
in short, a text-based chat room. Basically like a location in AW but
without the 3D objects and fancy music/sound. However, IRC does let you
send files, private messages (like telegrams), etc., as well as seeing
everyone who is in that chat room at the time.

SDK update

Oct 13, 1998, 9:46pm
He doesn't have to, Jw. And more non-bot-like application ideas WOULD be
nice :) For example, how about a PROGRAM that creates weather conditions
at a world's GZ based on RL conditions (got off the Web) for a city...
it would build rain.rwx, snow.rwx, clouds.rwx, sun.rwx, etc. at the
world's GZ...

Sample2 (Delphi)

Oct 14, 1998, 8:15pm
this is Sample 2 from the SDK docs (http://www.activeworlds.com/sdk)
translated into Delphi though - I think :) So Sample 2 should already be
in C code in the docs :)

Time sequencing...

Oct 14, 1998, 10:21pm
code VRT into the bot himself is probably the solution... I don't think
Roland has put a way for SDK bots to find out the VRT time in...

SDK apps tied to other programs ?

Oct 15, 1998, 7:41pm
Some (crappy) dictation software from MS allows you to use voice
recognition (if you can call it that) to input text into ANY Windows
application that has a text entry area. This includes AW (although when
I tried to speak a telegram, it came out like "Ah pink you knee" for "I
think you need"). Something similar would probably work from a Win32
console SDK app.

Bot logging...

Oct 22, 1998, 8:24pm
My shaky knowledge of C says it doesn't... in the example below, I *think* a is
accessible everywhere, b only in the main() function, and c, xx, and yy (the latter
two parameters) from within the xyz() function. Therefore, logfile should be
accessible everywhere.

int a;

int xyz(int xx, int yy);

main ()
int b;
// code

int xyz (int xx, int yy)
float c;
// code

Bot logging...

Oct 22, 1998, 9:43pm
*ahem* both Walter and me said exactly what you said just in code terms - both Walter's
"FILE *logfile;" and my "int a;" examples are declared before main, outside of a function,
and thus are globally acessible variables. I know this and I haven't even got to the
'variable scope' part of my C book yet (although I think I did read it once, just haven't
done the examples etc. there)

AWBOT & TC 3.0

Oct 30, 1998, 8:15pm
FYI, [Borland's] Turbo C++ 3.0 is a DOS, not Win32, compiler (although it can do
32-bit apps I believe), so I'm not sure if you could write an SDK app using it.

Bot Business

Nov 15, 1998, 8:06pm
SeedBot asks for a citizen number and privilege password to use to build the
seed object with. That's probably the best way to do it - make it
customizable based on input, INI file settings, etc.

Bot Business

Nov 15, 1998, 11:35pm
I didn't make it, but it's available for free download and the program
(which I downloaded) asks you for citizen number, privilege passwords,
coordinates, description, and object name and builds it.

HamBots are not allowed to speak within the restricted [building] radius, so
I would imagine the same applies to SDK bots.

yes, Roland changed it in 2.1 world servers to avoid abuse. I'd imagine this
change is pernament.

That could be a side effect of the changes Roland made, if it's true... i.e.
a bug :)

Normal / Large / Huge - no clue if it's like that or if Roland assigned them
numbers or something.


G / PG / R / X - again, no clue if there's numbers assigned.


unsigned int I believe - 0 - 65535 or so
