AWSDKOCX: Multiple Asynchronous Object Changes

Nov 12, 2000, 6:10am
seems like an odd problem why dont you post your code in cell_object and the
code you use to do the change?

AWSDKOCX: Multiple Asynchronous Object Changes

Nov 12, 2000, 6:55pm
i would contact mrgrimm i dont use the callbacks often because they dont relly
work well for me for example if i use the login callback the bot gets a "no
connection" error

new bot? good idea? or not?

Nov 18, 2000, 6:29am
ok im working on a new bot its a "plugin bot"
the bot will just be a standalone app
then you download extra apps that have idfferent features on them like
plugins
i will also probably make an sdk so other people can ake plugins for my
bots
good idea?
bad idea?

new bot? good idea? or not?

Nov 18, 2000, 9:06pm
ok... 2 noos the reasons... well its an easier way for me to add festures nad it means the peoledont
have to download the WHOLE bot over and over whenever there is a new feature..

[View Quote] > Like Twist said, its more the AW browser that needs the plugins, and besides, if most people knew

its not limited once you use api c++ makes it easier to do the stuff you have to make twice as many

bot telegrams?

Nov 20, 2000, 12:38am
why dont bots send telegrams? i know that could be
abused but what if you could have an option to
ignore people permanantly that would make you not
hear them talk or get thier telegrams?

bot telegrams?

Nov 20, 2000, 11:03pm
ok so what about 3.2? then you could only accept tgrams from people on your CT?
that way it would be harder for a bot to abuse telegrams... what if bot could
only telegram its owner?

vbsdk problem

Dec 22, 2000, 1:25am
i use the vb sdk
for some reason the bot is querying the wrong
place and is going from cell to cell incorrectly.
anyone else have this problem?

it doesnt query the cell the bots in and it will
query a cell randomly within an
