For some time I've been running my world server from my own pc as well
as the bots, but as I keep getting disconnected have found someone to
host my world for me. The question I have, however, is this: Is there a
way to run Xelagot from the server which will be hosted by someone else,
or will the bot/s have to be run off of my own pc? If it can be run from
the server, how? Thanks again.

Hi anpetu,

The freeware Xelagot program could be run from an NT server, but due to the
overhead it has, that is not very practical. There are two other
experimental versions of the xelagot, which run more than 3 bots (only
limited by the available memory and the SDK), but they are not at present
available for general use. One has a 'reduced' user interface showing login,
logout and error messages (no chat, no presence lists etc): the Av99bot; it
allows multiple instances of the program to run. The other runs as an NT
service totally in the background: the SrvcXlgBot; only one instance of this
program can be installed on a computer. I am not planning to make these
versions available for the time being, the main reason being they are meant
to run unattended, and I need a 100% garantee that they work flawlessly. I
run my own bots on my PC, so they are not always online.
