Since XelaG doesn't seem like he's going to release his bot server, I'll make a request here. I want to run bots remotely alongside world servers. Now while Linux bot servers may not be possible at this time, Win9x/NT ones should be. It would be nice to be able to control the bots through a GUI (like Faber's Preston's would be good) but have the actual bot run with the world server. Ideally the bots should be integrated INTO the world server and/or AW itself but the bot server will have to suffice for now. Any takers?

I agree 100% with you, Eep. I currently host five worlds and four bots on one Win 98 machine over a DSL connection. It would be much easier using a "bot server" then having three Preston's and one Xelagbot running...

Hello,

For your information AWJavaBots
http://www.insead.fr/CALT/Project/AWJavaBots/
runs on a servlet and can be programmed in javascript using a web browser.
However, this (open source) application will require spending sometime doing some javaprogramming
if you want to do something serious.

You can try the technology at:

Java? Can we say S-L-O-W? Bots don't need to be any slower than they already are, and I've had enough experience with Java to know that it's the epitome of slowness. Just say NO to Java. I want a bot server that runs on an ADEQUATE programming language like C or even C++. Anyway, I'm not a programmer, hence why I'm asking about bot servers here.

Hello eep,


No java is not as slow as it used to be. In particular with jdk 1.3.

Actually, I believe that an application written in java will be faster than an
application writen in an interpreted language.
If I remember, there is at least one AW bot applications that has created its interpreted language,
and the performance is really not a problem. (the network is a much more limiting factor ).
Perhaps, on of the problem with java now is more that it requires some installation
such as a servlet server (such as JServe).


I mentioned AWJavaBots for your information.
Right now you do not need to be a programmer to run this bot.
(except eventually a little bit of javascript).
You just have a few forms in html.
Nothing to install in the case of http://caltnt.insead.fr/servlets/awbot.javascript.servlet.AWJava
(of course it will not do a lot, but it will continue to work whisle you are not connected).

AWJavaBots is just a demonstrator, a test if you want, and the objective is just to make people
aware of what is possible to do. That's all.
