Hi, I need to find out the bot's own session number (in conjunction with
building), if possible. I'm somehow persuaded there is a way, but I can't
for the life of my remember or find it.

Thanks in advance for any help :-))

Notice a peculiarity of this attribute: Not only does it give you the
session number of the bot, it also changes to an error code when the
bot gets a universe disconnect.

ActiveWorlds SDK does not have a general disconnection event. It has
a world disconnect event, and an undocumented change of the session
number to an error code whenever the universe gets disconnected from
the bot.

Unfortunately, legitimate session numbers can also coincide with error
codes,. I mentioned this peculiarity to Roland Vilett, but never got a
satisfying answer.

In practice, I noticed that since the almost first 500 numbers which
could correspond to error codes are seldom used as legitimate session
numbers in the session number recycling process, I have been able to
use this undocumented oddity to help establish disconnections. There
are 5 such 'reason' codes which appear as session numbers I use as a
trigger:
27 = no such world
429 = unable to connect
439 = no connection
471 = connection lost
489 = world not running (i.e. admin closed world)

I had a few times a low sessionnumber show up, i decided to leave it in
anyway as the counter climbs fast the ostrich algorythm is a good
workaround here ;)

These are the only error codes that would be returned by aw_session:

RC_NOT_INITIALIZED
RC_NO_INSTANCE
RC_NO_CONNECTION

Will,

it would be better if the question were addressed properly: a universe
disconnect needs an event handler. It does not have it, and session
numbers are at present the only way to detect them with the SDK. This
is NOT the function of a session number.
