A small problem... (acutally 2 or 3)

Jan 8, 1999, 12:50am
Ok I have "aw.h" included in my teleport dialog for my bot but when it
calls the aw_state_change(); it returns no errors but doesn't make the
bot move and the exit button acts like its the login button if you need
any code please contact me...

SDK Question...

Jan 12, 1999, 1:21am
Does the SDK have file transfer support?

SDK Question...

Jan 12, 1999, 9:16pm
Lets say a person requests a file from the bot, the bot gets hte persons
session number and ask for authorization to send the file and if the
user accepts the bot will than send the file from a preset directory on
it's server...

SDK Question...

Well 2.1 has file transfer

and yes the server is the computer the bot is hosted on...

What I was saying it will request your fielt rasnfer session # than get that
number and send the file to you through aw...

SDK Question...

Jan 13, 1999, 11:03pm
See what I was thinking say you develope a game but don't want people to
have to download a extra SDK for it they could request it from the bot
or something... but you never know... I like the idea of the bot being
able to recieve files making for a good FTP client within aw :)

SDK Question...

Jan 14, 1999, 11:49pm
It'd be nice if you could set a a group of citizens numbers hwo could access the file
server than you send a file to the bot and if your # matches you get the ok it recives
the file and lets say you wanna have some kind of coding system that tells the bot
which directory to upload on the object server you would put a symbol at the start
like

at = avatars
_ = objects
! = textures
# = sounds
% = sequnces

exp.

at bytetheav.zip
!green.jpg
!greenm.zip

and so on :)

Bots vs 'usual' Avatars

Feb 15, 1999, 4:38pm
It is close to imposible for Roland to put collision detection into the
SDK its self because he will have to allow the SDK to retrieve object
paths which could be used by hackers or object stealers to get the
address to a worlds object server, and plus there is cases when you do
not need collision detect, but others you do...

Bots vs 'usual' Avatars

Feb 15, 1999, 8:16pm
Well I tried using the SDK's AW_WORLD_OBJECT_SERVER and it returned anm
empty stirng until I put it in a world I had caretaker in... Roland did
this to protect people, and no you can not see the server in AW either,
you could back in 1.2 and lower...

MFC and aw_wait()?

Feb 15, 1999, 10:20pm
Ok I've been working on a program, and when ever I call aw_wait(); the
program locks up for the amount of time I entered in the aw_wait, anyone
know how I might fix this?

MFC and aw_wait()?

Feb 15, 1999, 11:55pm
What do you mean?

I have to call it for 10000 ms...

MFC and aw_wait()?

Feb 16, 1999, 4:06pm
I need the 10 second wait because it changes an object ever 10
seconds...

MFC and aw_wait()?

Feb 16, 1999, 5:27pm
Yes but aw_wait(); locks up a MFC program... so I have to use SetTimer()
and in the WM_TIMER I have aw_wait(0);

WARNING: IMPORTANT

Apr 1, 2002, 4:36pm
It isn't a hoax.

As the owner of Axis, the passwords posted yesterday (now removed I
believe), had Axis in the list.. the password was indeed correct. The
password is outdated now of course, as the password is a month old. I have
since closed the world and I am changeing things. Eventually I hope to have
a better and more secure way of protecting my objects outside the
activeworlds browser.

Python SDK?

Dec 18, 2003, 3:05am
If you're making this on Windows, you can use the so called "VB SDK" to work
with it. The thing here is that the VB SDK is really COM and can be used by
ANY language that supports COM. :)

[View Quote]

PHP SDK

Mar 18, 2004, 6:24pm
Well, the one AWI used to make their 3d Homepage system was actually what
most would call the "VB SDK" (http://www.grimmsoft.com/aw/sdk/ get the
AwSdk2). You load it through PHP's COM interface. You'll need windows to
run the AW SDK in PHP using the COM interface. Since the SDK is designed
only for windows, even if there was an actual AW SDK extension for PHP, it'd
be Windows only.

PHP SDK

Mar 19, 2004, 6:56pm
Problem with the COM is that you have to define all the variable names such
as AW_BUILD and AW_AVATAR_X... :(

A wish or two

May 29, 1998, 8:43pm
Ok well I got some feature ideas

#1 a flaoting tab window when you have tabs shut off kinda like ICQ

#2 having the choice of having the avatar actions in a pulldown menu or
on the bar like usual

#3 a little seperator bar command in the avatars.dat so you can seperate
your avs by type

A wish or two

May 31, 1998, 2:55am
Heres another idea
why not have another tyab called avatars which has the list of the avs
you click on the av ot use it double click it to view it in a seperate
render window so you can see what it looks like and puts a stoop to the
question what do I look like?
[View Quote]

A wish or two

May 31, 1998, 4:05pm
Thats what I said Dthknight put the avs list in the tabs than yuo click
the av to use it doule click for a windoiw that pops up that allows you
to view it form all sides
[View Quote]

A wish or two

May 31, 1998, 5:16pm
Yes a pop-up would would work too we could have a preview under that
menu
[View Quote]

One Wish

Jun 5, 1998, 1:30am
Roland can you make VRML scaling work on avs too?

Idea

Jun 6, 1998, 12:25am
why not have a allow tourist option in the worlds option? if it is off
tourists can't get into your world! :)

Idea

Jun 6, 1998, 1:38pm
Yes very very very true
We can sratch the idea and a ban list which can be very useful incase
theres someone who keep causing trouble in your world and ejection
doesn't work to keep them out
