Hi,

Welllll, I must say I'm a little disappointed in the lack of reaction to
Magsbot. I've only gotten feedback from a few people. I'd really
appreciate any comments, either positive or negative, about it.

What do you want in a bot? It can probably be done with Magsbot, and
I'll try to write the scripts (buttons or behavior table) for it, if so.
Or add it to the basic bot, if not. :)

Get Magsbot at http://www.pipeline.com/~magine

* Now includes example user-defined buttons for Follow avatar, Record
and Playback avatar movements, Bookmarks, Log objects by click and and
Rebuild from log, Recite text file thru chat; and behavior table with
daily greeting and visitor log, respond to questions, play midis, ask
trivia questions, much more. Magsbot has it's own extensive "Bot Basic"
control language, and you can change behavior while the program is
running without having to reload a script.

I over looked magsbot and it has an impressive array of features for an
....uggg.. bot. I do not like bots.. but it seems you've opened up a few new
things to do.... However i said there's an "impressive array" .. it's more
like.. "everything and more array" . Which can be good, but if i remeber
your logo is "If you want a bot but your not a progrmmer use this" .... I
think it would be overwhelming for a first time user. Just my opninion

You're right, using the program to its full capabilities does require a bit of
programming.

However, you can still do many things with MB without any real programming
required, and to make these more understandable I've just added a "Quick and
Easy Instructions" file that explains how to use the basic "programmability"
features such as response to chat, recording and playing back avatar movements,
surveying and building, etc. without having to understand the whole thing.

I'll be finishing the built-in help and adding it to the program soon also.

The magsbot is the answer to all those people who ask, "where can I get a
cheap, full-featured compiler so I can write my own bot programs?" Better:
the magsbot is free! Yet it provides the support that we expect from major
programming languages, such as built-in lists, file access, timers, DLL
connectivity, even user-programmable buttons. Plus the magsbot makes the
major bot functions (chat, avatar-awareness, surveying, building) available
in the same scriptlike programming language. The latest version makes it
easier for non-programmers to begin programming by studying explicit
bot-programming examples. So users can invent all sorts of new bots--if they
have the imagination to think of any--just by programming a magsbot.
