Oops, I just realised that was only one question. Oh well. BTW, your palace does not work. All the links from here go to "finchnest.com:9876" which never seems to work. From The Great Crursaelequai

I have a number of questions. Is there a way to execute a script if the user says a word anywhere in a sentence, even if there is stuff before or after the word? BTW, Great Site, but the varying names for each page can get a little annoying. From The Great Crursaelequai.

You all told me it's a browser problem when I can't d/l the scripts. I've done it before, but it won't work now. And some of my friends have the same problem and they said it's your fault.. Did you change something or other cause I d/l'ed a script thing once but I can't now and I didn't change anything with my browser. I know I'm getting redundant here but I only got 2 hours sleep.
Jennifer <WarriorBard12@hotmail.com>

If it's DLing the file instead of showing you the file, then it's because your Win95 (98) registry thinks that files of type .ipt have a predetermined application to be associated with. Probably WordPad, but maybe Internet Phone Tool (IPT - get it?). It *is* a browser problem.

Sun, 30 Aug 98 at 12:56:43
BotBot has created my cyborg file just fine. But when i paste it into my old cyborg.ipt file(deleting the old text),it's all smooshed. If someone can help fix my file please e-mail me (SouthPk64@aol.com)Thanks.
Phil <SouthPk64@aol.com>

GMT is also known as GMT in every civilized country, even the ones without a significant military. I think I'll stick by that. Thanks for the anecdote, though. How did it get such a screwy nickname?

Hello. Ok i'm a palace owner and sometimes i have wizes or god who thin it is fun to ban me (prick's) any way i know i could take mself out of the ban list thrugh my script but also i'm also a god at my friend's palace he is on vacation it is runing but his outhere god baned me from his server and i was wondering if there is any way to get back into his server with out the god unbaning me? ok and my next question is as a palace owner how dose my palace servere keep baned and killed people from coming in my palace is it a scripted or somekinda file or somthin thanks please help
XBot59 <talk64@gte.net>
Portland, OR USA
The banlist is written into the mansion.script file (some versions of the server give it a different name). This file is simple text, and careful reading will show you what to edit. EDIT THE MANSION SCRIPT ONLY WHEN THE SERVER IS SHUT DOWN.

Thanks 4 the help, u can't c me

The "client" is your local copy of "The Palace." The "server" is the actual site software. Most people only have the client. If you had both, you'd probably be a pretty advanced and technically-astute user.

Could you update the botbot, i am beginning iptscrae, but haven't got the hang of it(Don't think i will for a while).

Why not?(you know what i mean!(this is on the board)
Mike <bigboy.lv.rmci.net>
Henderson, NV USA
(This was in response to a previous msg.)

It's simple, really. I don't give out other people's wizard and god passwords to anyone not explicitly specified by the owners of those passwords -- certainly not to some indignant and nearly-anonymous passerby. Nor do I trade passwords, which would be a pretty worthless sort of quid pro quo considering how easy it is for those passwords to become invalid. A password represents trust. That's what passwords are about. They are secrets, and I protect the secrets entrusted to me by my friends just as much as I protect my own secrets. In other words, I b down with my own, holmes. Forget it.


Sat, 22 Aug 98 at 14:45:44
Can you e-mail me all of the wiz passwords and the server name?Thanks. Bye the way you Thing that makes the cyborg.ipt it is cool.(Just incase you think i being a suck up i am not i really like that thing)

I saved it in the correct folder with the palace client in the c drive...yet when i try to use it it doesn't work! WHY?! This makes no sense...please try to help me figure out my problem!!!
Dan <esotericboy@hotmail.com>

Often under Win95 or Win98, the file can get saved as text -- and IE will automatically and quietly append an additional ".txt" to the filename. In such a case, check the filename in DOS. If it's "cyborg.ipt.txt" use the DOS RENAME command to change it to "cyborg.ipt"

Thu, 20 Aug 98 at 00:14:59
i need you to email me the script because it has an error on it when i try and build one. i like to use the zaps and zoops but cant cause of the script. i need someone either email me it or give it to me via palace. please help me through this.

I have a problem. 2 question really? Do you make new scripts off and on. I was thinking of a script. Maybe you can have a blue wiggle line like zzap. But it is blue. And then when it comes little blue lines come out of it from the out side. Example: ( ------------------- ( ) I call it Izap or Icezap. Another thing is that I am kinda scared on making a homemade script..

I followed (I thought) your directions for installing allscray on my server: It seems to work pretty much as described (although it took me a while to realize that not only do I have to be made a wizard, I have to make the extra step of opening my client preferences and closing them so as to make the asterisk that's already there ACTIVE) except that the primary reason I wanted to install it was to move users (and the Wizard) into a password protected room without TELLING the users the password. The following typed in to the text input box does not seem to work to do it ("password" here being the password): ;allscray "password" say The result is my avatar displays the word "password" in a text balloon. Obviously, not what's needed. What is the correct syntax to cause both the wizard and any users in the room to enter the password protected room? Also, is there a way to be selective about it? That is, can a wizard include only certain users, but not others, or is allscray an all or nothing proposition? Your emailed response will be most gratefully received! Thanks.

When i used palace and scripts here before, they all worked great. I have not used them since dec, so I am redoing the scripts, d/l all new, as a few of the old were not working. one that worked befoe no longer works, dose not matter if i were 30 or 50. the radom color for the ballons, is not working. and ghe brbfly also does not have any color to it. now if i have a 'face' it changes ramdomly, but nothing else dose. any idea what I am doing wrong and how to fix it ?

Hello Dr. X. I have a question and a script request. The problem is, other than that Login String problem (the first alterable thing on the page), which still exists, and causes a problem when you use the @ sign...is the "reflect" script...there is a BIG flaw in it if you try to use that verb in a room that allows scripts. If you even TRY to say reflect, you lose ALL the text that was said with "reflect" and it will say "reflect on"...even disabling hasn't helped...just kept giving me "reflect on". As for the suggestion, remember setface? You mentioned about voiding the warranty, which makes the script a bit useless. Why not make THAT customizeable? It will not only help, but voiding the warranty will no longer exist for that part of the script, unless someone alters THAT...but it solves most of the problems for that script. Ragnarok c==X<>====>

The Wizardless Pin Script I AM PISSED OFF! I am attempting to write a script entailing this: User clicks on tempting area and is sent to Nav Area in bottom corner of screen. Dons "chains" prop and thinks he has been pinned. Message tells him to say please let him go. He says it and is supposed to doff the prop and move somewhere, but he just doffs the prop. Also, every time someone says something they move to that given spot. The first spot works fine: it says the dialogue and sends the user to the nav area with the chains on. He can't move. Here is what i have written for the nav area (the door id is 3) ON OUTCHAT { OCHAT GLOBAL CHATSTR OCHAT = 90 3 SETALARM } ON ALARM { -100 1 MOVE 3 INSPOT IFELSE OCHAT "the magic word" SUBSTR IF [ "Chains" ] DOFFPROP } WHAT IS WRONG??? I DONT UNDERSTAND!!! Thank you Dr X!

Well. I haven't used BotBot in ages as I am a avid Scripter but I needed a few simple things that I didn't want to make when BotBot already suplied them for the changing. Well ok so I come here and I pick what I need very little but some. I tell it to make it and it begins to DL and then it doesn't saying that some path was incorrect. Now what the heck is that all about? Why doesn't it just desplay the Scripts and let me copy them into my Cyborg like it used to? This isn't a NetScape only thing is it? Personally I say IE is best but DON'T buy 4 it is a waste of money and space.

Hi again. I have found a possible glitch that is causing the SIGNON bug for me and various other users. It seems that putting the @ sign as the first character (which is usually always there, followed by numbers) will cause the cyborg generator to load the default line instead. I tested this by making test scripts with and without the @ sign. With it, it gives the default (the problem), but without, it gives you what you typed. I suggest to you, X, to check the generator for any possible problems, because maybe it had something to do with that directory moving thing you mentioned or anything related to that.

You can't properly initialize a BotBot cyborg by just hitting "reload scripts" becuase of a subtle bug in the way palace is made. "Reload scripts" might reload the script, but it doesn't re-run the "signon" portion of the script -- which is where BotBot borgs do all their initialization. The correct method is to follow the instructions and log off from whatever palace you're visiting and log on again.

A quick check of the BotBot logs show that you, alone, have repeatedly asked the bot for exactly such a nearly-empty file... even as many other users were simultaneously running BotBot without any such problem. I've got to suspect your browser. - *X

Hi again. I have found a loophole to get around that script problem I mentioned earlier. By IE 4.0 SP1, that SP is Service Pack (trying to make it easier to download updates). Anyway, this is the loophole, and it should be able to work on IE v.4.0 and up (anything less will not come in contact with this problem, I HAVE HAD v.3.0 and there were no problems). When you make your script, and it DOES come up with the HTML, like the Doc said, it IS created. It does not exist in your cache folder (Temp. Internet Files or whatever it is called on your computer), so you have to save it (.txt works best). Then, open Notepad. You notice everything is there. You try to save it, and all you get is cyborg.txt.ipt (the .ipt is the true extension; the .txt, well, you know that Windows allows periods in filenames, but that sometimes causes trouble with extensions). This is what I got, and found the loophole around. Anyway, copy the info from that "fake" cyborg (Select All, Copy), and then open the "true" file (your actual cyborg.ipt) and Select all there, and delete it (DO NOT CUT OR YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR COPIED INFO). Then Paste. You now have the true one filled with the data you want. Just save it, it will correctly overwrite the file. When you get the script loaded, you will have all of your options that you selected. That's the loophole. BTW, X, your Login field at the beginning of the script-creating page cannot be changed. I put data in that field and it gave me the default instead (everything else remained, though, just the Login field lost all new info). The finger script's data is also incorrect. Please fix these errors after you have read this message. Ragnarok c==X====>
Ragnarok <WolfeDen3@americanteleport.com>
USA
A quick check here shows that the finger script works fine. Could you be more specific, or provide an example?

A simpler workaround would probably be to avoid having the browser do anything special for .txt or .ipt files, because they're just plain text. Similarly, if you've already opened the file in Notepad or any other text editor, why go through all these shenanigans with deleting and pasting? "Save As..." is always a convenient alternative.

It still sounds to me like your browser is wonked upside its head. *X



Hello. Now that the problem with the guestbook that kept me from saying this important message is gone, I can say it. The BotBot page works fine, with just one major problem. It makes it, it shows the HTML layout (as always), BUT, IT DOESN'T EXIST when I look for it. I even tried the Find option (Windows 95, IE 4.01 SP1) and I come up empty-handed. Do you have any idea what is causing this? Ragnarok c==X====>
Ragnarok <WolfeDen3@americanteleport.com>
USA
If the browser shows it, then the data is being correctly calculated and sent to you. But your browser "save" configuration sounds whacked... which sadly is beyond my control.

a problem was reported that your server is not able to handle JAVA scripts and will be shut bown and disconected the next time an attemt is made to browse an item using a JAVA script. this a warning for further reference so all that the user (you) can host is HTML scripts.

I don't know how to put the allscray into my cyborg so I can dress and undress people. The web page that you sent me via email will not come up in my browser. What can I do now to get it into my cyborg file?

Allscray is a ROOM script, not a cyborg script.

How do you get the Dress up script to work. It says that you can dress other people and you can dress yourself with there prop but I can not get it to work.
Jason <jacotton@up.net>
Calumet, Mi USA
They must also be using the dressup script -- that is, they must also have it pre-installed in their own cyborg.ipt file(s). Yes, I would consider this a "downside" to the dressup script. Using the zombie mode "dz" script in tandem with allscray is usually a better bet.

No matter what I try; the BotBot will NOT download. I tries a new Palace file... A diffrent Cyborg name... Downloading it into a blank directory... Your guess is as good (better) than mine :) I guess I'll add some of your scripts untill it gets fixed.

If you can see the scripts, then the botbot is indeed downloading.... you just need to tellyour browser to save the resultant page to disk as "cyborg.ipt"

Hey X, Could you tell me the door script that makes it so whenever you click a door another image shows
Alex <persson@concentric.net>

Add numbered pics to the room, and have the door (which is a spot) change its spot state to be the same values. The different images will appear. Look at the default mansionscript for examples.

(more) questions about the Secret Tea Room, Is the key a prop? Is the key in your palace? Is the key something that will be noticed?

If the key is a prop,is the key part the name or id number or something about the apperance? Do you have to be wearing the prop for the computer to recognize it? Can you be wearing other props too?

Depending on your prefered method, you can author from within the palace client or by editing the textfile directly (as long as the server's not running). See here.

whenever I sign on, or wiz up, or reload scripts, or anything of the sort, the program prints in my log: "Script Error" I've looked over my cyborg, nearly cleaned it out, didn't find any problems with it, so I'm wondering if you can give me a diagnosis.

Anonymous <anonymous@whitehouse.gov>

Well Mr A, once you've hacked directly on the client, who knows what other trouble you've wreaked? Maybe you've offset all internal string resourvces by one byte and trashed the parser.

Heeelllppp!!! I am TRYING (underlined twice!) to teach myself Iptscrae. I am very familiar with the type of language this MAY be based after. (I think it is a cross between C++ and Visual Basic -- then again maybe not?) Some of the commands and language look familiar. HOWEVER, I need to know of some way of obtaining the "built-in" standard commands of this 2+ year old language; as well as a book or other literature on how to manipulate this language to do other things instead of having BotBot do it for me. In a nut shell is there a book or other reading material that starts at the beginning and goes through all the advanced commands? I have created scripts using BotBot, but I like doing things the hard (learning) way! :) Any info would be appreciated! Thankyou. :) Arctic C. Wolfe
Arctic C. Wolfe <arcticcwolfe@cyberzone.net>
Bristol, CT USA
Did you look at our own house o bots? Other than that, I don't know of any.

As recounted here and elsewhere, Iptscrae is syntactically related to FORTH and Postscript. C++? Surely you jest... iptscrae wouldn't know an object method from an integer. VB is also much more robust (never thought I'd catch myself using that adjective about VB) and unrelated to Iptscrae, except I suppose that you could consider iptscrae as a client-side script mechansim similar to VBScript (which we all know should just quietly disappear anyway).

My first response was to say "you can't." But I don't think that's entirely correct. You'd have to use wizard-style paging, however, and have access to the logs. And use an external link to a web browser. And be good at CGI programming.

But i just went to get a new version to get more stuff and it says it can not move the file or specifi the correcy file name.

Let me get this straight. You want to steal stuff and you're too cheap to do it well? Well, try drawing a flat-colored region behind them, or moving to a flat-colored room, or... asking them for the prop.

Hello. I seem to be having trouble with the "giveall" script. I type in the command and propname EXACTLY AS STATED ON THE BOTBOT PAGE(giveall <propname>), and all it does is say "giveall <propname>" in a talk balloon. However, I try the same trick with the same prop (it's name has not changed) using "give" and it works perfectly. I think you might want to check the BotBot script. BTW, other than finding a way to get the "give" series of scripts to only give the props and not say a talk balloon, could it also be possible to give just certain users props as well?

The script lets you specify the prop names, and the BotBot lets you set a default prop name.

You may have been killed by that server for flooding if you were going through a lot of props (it's happened to me, anyway). You may then have coincidentally crashed. Replacing the prop file will usually solve such problems....

(magus) infront of their names, and when I requested she explain why, she said she was to busy. I think that if I am going to be forced to hide my being in a HELPING group, I deserve a reason.

Hello X, I wonder if you can help me on this one. I have seen this problem before on the palace Newsgroups but no one was able to give a solution. So I dare ye! I want to give a prop to visitors in my personal palace. The prop is Unique and the name as well. So when I want to give this prop with a roomscript it won't appear on the visitor because the visitor never saw the prop before.Once I have shown the prop to them the roomscript IS able to give it to them. I tried hiding the props in a secret room so that the server MUST know what it looks like but alas. What do YOU think the problem is?? BTW. I run a personalserver on a PC vers. 3.0.

Simple. Use the prop ID, not the prop name. That's how p-spots work.

Hi! Great site you have here. It's the best Palace page I've seen. But I was wondering, where can I get the CGI script for the Botbot? I've been looking everywhere for a similar CGI script, because I help out with a non-profit webpage making service, and an edited version of that would be perfect for a make-you-own-webpage.
Thanks very much.

Thanks for the kind words...
The source to the BotBot is not available, sorry.
I actually doubt very much that it would do what you desire a ground-up rewrite to adapt the BotBot to write web pages would probably be more difficult that to just write what you want from scratch.

Dr.X QSTN: Is it possible to have a guest or member banned/killed by a roomscript on a personal palace?
Before killing people you'd like to give them the option to behave or leave. But to have this conversation in a full room isn't always fun for other guests since not all wizards are good with words. I designed a room where faulmouthed guests can be transpported to where they are confronted with the house rules. They are muted and the only thing they can do is to PAGE the wizards and apologize, Leave through the door (if opened by a wizard), or they can just leave. So in the ON LEAVE command I have put the KILLUSER command. But it doesn't work, only when MMEMBERS and CYBORGS CAN KILL is on. But I don't want a holocaust in my palace. Can you help me out on this one? Mel.

Mel <Personalmailbox@hotmail.com>

KILLUSER is really for wizard use (as you've discovered) the only other useable application I've seen is in some Palace-based games. Instead, why don't you give them a NETGOTO command that sends them to someplace distasteful or better-equipped to deal with twits?
I think you're trying to get the software to do what software is rotten at making social value judgements. And asking someone who's already a demonstrated snert to make such a judgement about themselves is... well, ill-advised.

just to add some more informations, there is what i've tried:
ON ENTER {
{ 124 gotoroom } NBRROOMUSERS 6 == IF }
But in that script , it is just the user that enter in the 6th position who goes in the room 124, so i would like that everybody in the room goes in the room 124 when they are 6 in the gate. Thanks again.

Richard <miller.r@videotron.ca>

The problem is that you've mistakenly thought that the room script runs on the server it doesn't! It runs on each of the individual users' machines, 6 (or however many) independant parallel copies.
Instead, trigger such a script on something that's genuinely shared by all the people in the room typically INCHAT:
ON INCHAT {
    {
	{ 124 GOTOROOM } 240 ALARMEXEC
    } NBRROOMUSERS 6 == IF
}
The use of ALARMEXEC is to minimize the effects of lag.

Hi Dr. X, need your help, i'm working on a script but i have something wrong, and it doesn't work, maybe i don't understand quite well the commands, what i want to do is the following event, when the users are more than 6 peoples at the gate , they all move in another room , keeping the gate free to admit other users, and to be sure that the palace will be able to admit his full capacity. I've seen it one time on another palace , and it was working well. I've tried this with the IF command but anyway i know i got it wrong, it never worked.thank you for your help. Richard

I put in the new file (made by the botbot thing) and i go to a room in the palace menu at the top and an error pops up saying: You have preformed an ilegal operation.(then tells why in computer marks)Whats wrong i can send my file if you want.
And second when you want a script to work what do you type? ex. `blodie or ~blodie ect.

I just tested "ap" and it worked perfectly. If you had provided concrete information instead of sarcasm, I might have been able to solve your problem.
Basic "ap" use:
  • Point where you want balloons to come from, and type ap or ;ap
  • Subsequent balloons will appear in the chosen location unless preceded by "@" or "="
  • To turn it off, type ;ap 0 0
  • There are plenty of other options which I leave for you to find in the docs, and a few (like the aforementioned "=" escape character) that you'll find in folklore or the code.

    No, it seems that there's some sort of routing or other DNS "burp" that has a hard time reconciling a mixture of calls to "www.botzilla.com" (or "www.finchnest.com") with numeric lookups that return "botzilla.com"... so I've swapped out all the links and replaced them with numeric entries, which bypass DNS.
    Try http://207.92.254.222/cgi-bin/botbot.pl instead.

    Also, I was having a problem with the spot layering...does this thing make it so if there's like one spot that covers the entire room, and another inside that spot...that the person could still click the spot inside it? I was trying this with out any success...It kept clicking the larger spot, even though I used the Move to Back, Move to Front etc...Any ideas?

    will generate "4" but watch yourself! This is not C, or even BASIC. Multi-dimensional array use in iptscrae is at BEST a slow process.
    I'm not much of a fan of layered spots, and never use them. Not because they're flaky in implementation (they may or may not be), but simply because I like my interfaces to be less fuzzy. Sorry.

    Is there a script that would send someone to a certain room, pin them there, and page the wizard at the same time, if a user swore or used obsene props?
    Elisabeth
    USA
    Executive Summary: No.

    Technical Detail: Scripts can do some things, but not everything.

    1. Send to Any Room: Yes.
    2. Pin Them: Only for wizards.
    3. Page the Wizards: Yes.
    4. Detect Swearing: Not well, since people can play games with spelling. And what about international users? TPI's mansion once had a problem with such a script attempt when it was realized that many Japanese verb forms end in "-shite" and "-shita" (think about it). This is really a part of one of the Great Unsolved Problems of computer science getting computers to understand human language(s).
    5. Detect Obscene Props: Not really. How can the script judge prop content? All the script might be able to check would be the prop ID #'s.

    Adam Jenkins <ajenk@succeed.net>

    Thanks for the heads-up, found it a bug in Palace itself!

    Tech Explanation:
    It seems that the regular expression "^\.(.*)" (match all strings beginning with a period) matches everything when run through the Palace's version of "grep." This is wrong, but fortunately there's a workaround which I've already applied to the BotBot. The characters "\." are replaced with "[.]" and it now works perfectly.


    Tue, 11 Nov 97 at 00:06:44
    Hey X, I have a suggestion why the non-http compliant message thing might be happening. it is because at the end of your page address when you try to access the botbot thing it says botbot.pl so it makes the browser think it ain't html. Do yout hink you can make the end of the address botbot.html that should fix everything and the browsers will think it is html
    Gary Cuomo <gary_cuomo@hotmail.com>
    kihei, Hi USA
    Sounds reasoned, but that's not it. Most perl-based CGI scripts end in .pl. The real reason appears to be some bad pointers somewhere that confuse www.botzilla.com with botzilla.com. You want the www version.

    (Quote from here about diapers deleted... *X)

    You said that this situation is one of the only times it is apropriate to pin (situation irelevant). My point is (gasp:-), when dealing with younger users the `pin command is a good way to show them that you are serious and can AND will deal with the problem. BTW: I should be the one to mark your Typos!: LOOK AT MY LAST POST :P
    Adam Wolf <<n/a>@<n/a>.com >

    It depends on the traffic, to be sure my point was that some people seem to enjoy being pinned and consider the chains a badge of snert honor. There are other ways to startle neophyte snerts: like whispering them their own IP address or using allscray.

    I suspect you got bitten by the subtle bug in "hi2all" (now repaired) an unterminated string would cause memory overruns within the client-side iptscrae interpreter which meant buss error on Macintoshes and GPF's on Windows machines. BotBot is now fixed to avoid this error though in this X's opinion, something as simple as an unclosed set of quote marks should NOT be able to crash the OS (reading this, TPI?).

    Dr. X, somthing is really wrong with the automated scriptwriter. Or something must be really wrong with my browsers. When I visited the BotBot for a script everything was fine. When I closed my browser and again asked for the BotBot page some time later. (The page where you can choose the scripts). The page went blank and said "Your browser sent a non-HTTP compliant message." I thought it was a new problem for the Netscape Communicator so I opened 3.0. No problems then. But when I tried the page again after I logged on later that day, (with 3.0) the same message appeared. Can you only visit this page once? What's wrong?

    Hey X! I just found out the cause of my script problems: Your BotBot page is GPFing again! I can verify this since, when I tried your BotBot script VERY recently, it GPFed and destroyed my prop file when I exited Palace. I deleted both, downloaded backups from Palace, readded the props (very time-consuming), fixed up the limited script they had, and tried it again. I closed Palace. No GPF or corrupted prop file. You might want to see if there is a problem. Ragnarok c==X====>
    Ragnarok <WolfeDen3@americanteleport.com>
    Kittanning, PA USA
    First, the page isn't GPF'ing, your computer is...
    So it can't be GPF'ing "again." :)
    Upon examination I discovered that Ragnarok's cyborg greeting string (that is, the string provided by the user on the HTML form) contained a few illegal string characters. The BotBot has been revised so that they can't cause any more havoc. If just that was causing a GPF, however.... I'd call it a Palace Client bug.

    Wed, 08 Oct 97 at 08:50:34
    My question is that I heard there was some kind of program that would allow you to make props easily by just dragging it to the prop bag or something and then it would automatically cut and arrange your prop. I heard this program or this ability is only availible for a PC. Well now I have a PC, and I'd really like to learn how to use it. Thanx, conor

    Sketchy answers to sketchy questions:
     { [prop1array] } { [prop2array] } 2 RANDOM 1 == IFELSE SETPROPS

    "mySound" SOUND

    ON ENTER { "words" LOCALMSG }

    How's that?

    Could somebody tell me how to change the place of the kill button in the 'go to room' window with ResEdit? Or to take it away? I'm always confusing it with the 'go' button, and have killed innocent people because of that =( . Thanks!!!

    That's a browser bug. You'll see that the text is being saved on disk, but he browser opens up a window to look at the "leftover" data. Anyway. Since it's all on disk, not in the wondow, you get... a blank window.

    It usually means that you're running from behind an internet firewall, and the firewall is stripping part of your message. Talk to your ISP.

    I was readin through your SPT section and was reading about noone eavesdropping on whispering. You're not doling out the whole truth here. Maybe this god was just shitting with me but he said anything anyone says appears in the logs for that aplace site. they may not be able to eavesdrop while you whisper right there but what you whisper appears in the logs. Not that someone would have time to go throught them. Also only a god has access to the logs.

    I just got the cyborg.ipt file, and now whenever I go into the Palace and try to say something, it says that it's perfored an illegal function and closes the palace. I can't figure out how to fix the problem, but it can't be a coincidence that as soon as I got the file, the problem started. Please help me ASAP. Thx

    It's unlikelyt that bot code could cause this error... but sometimes the "blondie" script will cause problems if you don't have the right props.

    Use the bulkhi2 command (aka "bhi"). It lets you specify a greeting, so the greeting can just as easily be a farewell. Just say:

    I logged on today and found out that after trying to use the botbot it was slowing down dramaticly. I spent about twenty minutes at it the gave up. It MIGHT be the server but I doubt it, not only has it never been that slow before, but I'm hooked up with cable so it should be faster, shouldn't it? Please help!

    That only happens to botbot users, who are sent to a special tea room. If you press a different destination at the gate, it won't happen....

    I dont know that anyone cares about this issue, but i believe that Palace, Inc. should care. Recently a friend and i discovered that a member could be marked in such a way that the mark would only appear to certain other members. This might seem as "only so much fun" to many, but i believe that this ability can distroy the entire palace concept and appeal for eveyone. At the moment most, if any, are concerned about this, but when it is discovered that one can be secretly marked, then they have little choice but to fall into the worry of it. So far all i have heard from wizards about it is "so what...hehe, you would have to be a wiz to do it." Do the Palace directors know so little of why people come to visit the palaces. If it can not be done (which i have already witnessed, that it can), how are you going to convince the general population, unless your planning on serious internet censoring. Good luck, fellas, trouble is around the corner.

    Hello. I have a new script idea, and a question about one of the scripts. RecentHi: A script that works like "bulkhi" but only says hi to the person who most recently entered.
    I'd love to, but iptscrae isn't informed wheen users come and go. To make such a script would require a continuous event loop: a timer to click off a test for "anyone new? anyone gone?" every few seconds. It's possible, but has many annoying drawbacks, including occasionally crashing your machine when you run out of memory because GREPSTR has a memory leak in some versions (seems to, anyway) :/
    AP: This script caused trouble with the Palace. Whenever I have a MIDI in the script, and I try to use AP, the Palace usually gives me an error message and closes (I think that would be a basic GPF). How can the problem be fixed?
    Ragnarok <wolfeden3@americanteleport.com>
    Kittanning, PA USA
    It fails from MIDI combined with AP's use of "@"? And you get a GPF? Sounds like an MS-Win error, but really this is the first I've heard of it. I have heard about mystery crashes when using MIDI under Wintel, but only rumors.
