It could create problems though m0e... e.g you oculd be standing on a

optional tag on a command (e.g. "create move 10 0 5 allsee=on"), I
don't really think enough people would use it.

Telgram Sound

Oct 3, 2002, 9:15pm
Yep this is a really simple wish hehe

A telegram sound. It could be a wav file you choose in the options
(obviously it could also be turned off in options as some people would
find it annoying)

I get a sound from my IM program when someone IMs me, so why not
telegrams in AW?

A similar idea would be a join request sound.

These woudl be useful when working in other windows :¬) I hate when
I'm concentrating on another window and don't notice a join request,
even when I can see the chat history in the AW window.

So you're basically talking about browser skins? That's a great idea!

Be careful not to upgrade all your old versions... hope someone still has
them somewhere or you won't be able to make a retro skin...

Perhaps this hiding could be easy to ativate/deactivate... what I mean
is, there could be an on/off button that can be used to temporarily
hide/show yourself. Every time you open close AW, that button could
change back to what is set in the options, hidden/not hidden.

Browser Within Activeworlds Ability

Apr 23, 2003, 8:53pm
I think she is talking about HTML support on a 3D object :¬)

They did it in WorldsPlayer but its code is different from AW and I don't

Proposal: AW2

Apr 22, 2003, 3:30pm
They can add support for new technology without rewriting the browser...

by the way, it's not likely that I'm ever going to upgrade my comp,
except perhaps the graphics card. There are probably a lot of users on
AW who aren't planning to upgrade either.

One of the main reasons I like AW is that it works great on my old slow
computer. It works with old versions of Windows (if you were planning to
make AW use only the latest DirectX, and Microsoft, as they most likely
will, suddenly decides to make all future versions of DirectX available
to only XP users, you've got a real problem) and it doesn't need anything
really special to run.

Would it be a sound business decision? I haven't seen many users
complaining about AW not using the latest hardware. I certainly haven't
seen anyone LEAVING AW over it. But requiring that you upgrade your
computer to stay in AW... I think you would lose a considerable
percentage of AW citizens.

Set commands so they can be done in sequence

Nov 28, 2003, 6:33pm
e.g. "activate sequence move 10 0 0 time=5,teleport a!!ct"

This would only teleport once the move command has finished.

This would work well with Codewarrior's FX command. Like, maybe, a
teleport with a pic inside, when you walked into it there would be a
zoon in effect and the teleport would happen only after that was finished.


This would also be good with a wait command. Simply wait 5 or something.
