We are going to upgraded to a p50-15 soon, but currently don't have the
funds. We need as many people to donate as possible, and there will be a
special hall in the RPG dedicated to the people who donated to SpiraRPG.
They will also get their own line of equipment too.

Hurry guys! We need the money ASAP!

Let me get my PayPal account open so I might send this complete stranger who
is begging for money and offering
next to nothing worth anything, in return some money!


Really, there has to be a better solution that this very lame and desperate

Perhaps you should raise the funds to open an adequate world, provide
something for someone to experience and allow them
to decide if they'd like to donate and aide in your world, rather than
blindly giving you money for something that may very well
be nothing they are interested in?

You also do not mention anything about this RPG to entice anyone.
What genre will it be?
Any screenshots of the existing world you are currently building in?
Will there be extra fees to play?
How established are you as a programmer for the bots that will be running
your RPG?
What ISP and types of servers will be hosting your world so that those who
donate can be certain that it will remain up when
they want to use it?

Just a friendly (and a bit sarcastic, I admit) reply.

DS Dark Scorpion is a newbie.. He's completely lame. He can't program >_<
Thanks for disappointing me when you tried to make my bot.. You will never
be able to open a RPG because you can't model, can't build, and are
unsuccessful at making bots.

I am not intending to hurt you or anyone else, I'm just stating the obvious

Hey buddy, I just wanted to let you know that you can't ask someone to
do a bot for free, and hope for it to be good. I sold 4 in the last 2
months, and I AM a programmer, and who's the newbie? Theworld: Cit #
314090. Your just pissed because I refused to program a bot for you
after you asked me to, and then said "Nevermind, Goshenta is programming
one for me. But I'd like for you both to program one, and I'll pick the
better one." And I of course said, "No."

Matt: Go get hit by a bus you fat ass.

I have to agree though, you are lame. You had the nerve to ask for
donations in a silly manner by cross posting to every fricken newsgroup.
Post some of your source code, lets see what Strike has to say

Interesting enough, I got a gram today from this guy... It's not so much
that I really care myself, it's just to show you all that if you decide to
donate, what kind of person your money is going to. I really doubt anyone
will donate, but just in case, it's a waste of your time and money.

The swearing was not my doing, so if your going to bug anyone about it, bug
this guy..

ALright, bitch: here it is: You can't do shit you fat ass mother fucker. How
am I unsuccessful at making bots? Ive sold 4 in the last two months. How am
I a newbie? I am Theworld, cit # 314090. Your the n00b bitch. I lost the
internet, thats why I've been gone, and hell no, I was never making your bot
because you got Goshenta's no programming ass to do it first.

Go get hit by a bus.

-Your worst nightmare, and arch nemesis, Ceph.

all i have to say is maybe once you have something people might want to
donate, because you already have put in the work required to do what you

If you have sold four copies of one of your bots why do you want donations?

Why not tell people what your bot can do, show them a world its currently
running in and see if you can't sell a few more copies. Just an Ideal.

If Left(LCase(chatmessage), 8) = "/givegp " Then
stuffee = Mid(chatmessage, 9)
Dude = Left(stuffee, InStr(stuffee, ",") - 1)
a = PlayerID(Dude)
If a = -1 Then Exit Sub
numbadude = Mid(chatmessage, InStr(stuffee, ",") + 1)
Ply(a).wealth = Ply(a).wealth + Val(numbadude)
AwConsole "blue", False, False, Ply(a).session, "You were given " &
numbadude & " gold by " & avatarname & "."
End If

There's some.

> If Left(LCase(chatmessage), 8) = "/givegp " Then

Mistake #1, you always lcase the entire line into another
variable then use it for comparisons if you intend to
do a lot of lcase compares

> stuffee = Mid(chatmessage, 9)

What the hell is that variable name?

> Dude = Left(stuffee, InStr(stuffee, ",") - 1)

Again, variable name.

> a = PlayerID(Dude)

Let me guess, array instead of a managed collection.
again, A is a useless variable name.

> If a = -1 Then Exit Sub

Proper coders would express this as:
If (a = -1) then exit sub
To conform to inrceased clarity.

> numbadude = Mid(chatmessage, InStr(stuffee, ",") + 1)

Twice you used instr(stufee, ",") why is it not in its own variable

> Ply(a).wealth = Ply(a).wealth + Val(numbadude)

Integer + Double = BOOM, but let me guess; on error resume next?

> AwConsole "blue", False, False, Ply(a).session, "You were given " &
> numbadude & " gold by " & avatarname & "."

> End If

In my opinion its poor, all your string functions are returning variants
instead of string types, you are forcing the program to execute the same
thing more times than it needs to, theres no particular OO concepts I can

I havent done VB for ages, but lets see..

dim chat_msg$, lcmsg$, sargs$()
dim avatar as AwAvatar

set avatar = avatars.GetBySession(gaw_int(AW_CHAT_SESSION));

' check that an avatar is found and not ghosted
if (ClassIsNull(avatar)) then
exit sub
end if

lcmsg$ = lcase$(chat_msg$)
sargs$() = split(lcmsg$, " ", 2)

' check for this case
if (ubound(sargs$()) < 2) then
exit sub
end if

if (sargs$(0) = "/givep") then
dim toks$()
toks$() = split(sargs$(1), ", ")

If (UBound(toks$()) < 2) then
call avatar.ConsoleMsg("You must say who you wish to give to and how
much", vbRed, CMF_ITALIC)
exit sub
dim to_add as double
to_add = val(toks$(1))

if (to_add < 0) then
call avatar.ConsoleMsg("Cant give negative points", vbRed,
exit sub
end if

and so on
End If

end if
