I have my own palace but i dont know how to make doors that open close or lock please help

SLaG <>

Have you looked at the sample script provided with the server, the one that looks essentially like the "Mansion" palace? The bedrooms all have such doors.

If you know the prop ID #s, just use SETPROPS:

[3565822 23878701 237698923] setprops

etc. Of course, finding out the propIDs is another matter....

HI wonder if u can tell me why I get a message in my log and so do my guests its says Warning Bogus INIT?? something like that Also my friend just opened her pserver and no one can download her rooms whats with this she has them in the right place Thanks Ladycups

Louise Forte <>
Yonkers, NY USA

The message is provoked by the fact that you have cyborg scripting turned off at the front gate room of your palace site... but not in the other rooms. It means that all the cyborg initializations that occur when a new user logs-in to a new site don't occur, and the cyborg is incapable of functioning properly after that. See this page for more info on that particular topic.

I clicked the build cyborg.ipt button and I saved it as Cyborg.ipt and everything and when I clicked save this is what it said: Cannot move cyborg(1): Cannot find the specified file. Make sure you specify the correct path and fliename.

Stephanie <>

Your browser is trying to make extra copies of an existing file. Move or rename the pre-existing cyborg file.

Oh, crap. Help! I filled out one of your ipt forms and downloaded it to my palace folder and now my server doesn't work. My palace server says " Winsock Error: 10049 - Can't assign requested address @ 568" I haven't messed with ipt b4 and I would really like some help... I wanted to work on my palace... dangit! help!

Do you still get the same error when the cyborg.ipt is removed?
Mon, 26 Oct 98 at 16:35:03

i was wondering, is there a way to find out how to access the available scripts in a room? for example : honey off turns off the honey script, lights off turns off lights in a room with a lamp is there a code that will list all on/off; open/close codes available? please email. - Celina

Celina <>

No, no such code. The scripts actually define those commands, they're not "built-in" to the scripts. Each room can have lots of scripts, scattered among multiple room spots. The only really reliable way to look at them is to be given wiz privs at the site in question.

Howdy there Dr. X, I seem to be having a bit of trouble with the Netspeak translator script from the BotBot. For the life of me I can get it to run. I understand that its a Beta script. *smiles* I'm not sure if can't understand why the array of translations is beneath the bulk of the code. Parsing strings isn't one of my strong points and hoped to get a few clues from this script. Unfortunately I'm not doing very well figuring out this script. Mind explaining the script here in the book for everyone? Or perhaps putting up a version that works a bit better? *grin* And I'm quite sure I've installed everything properly.

Fenris <>

It's really just a simple pile of text matching. If the matches don't always work, it's because... they don't always work! As you've said, it's a beta. I'll take a look.

shields will not work scan works sometimes then give up and how do u get zap4 the ultra lagging zap

josh moser <>
hudson, quebec canada

shields works on "shields up" for some reason (I was not the original author). It says so in the instructions :)

scan has a timeout, which was added deliberately to reduce lag.

Ok so i got my cyborg scripts and all and i put it in my palace folder. I shut down palace and then restarted.

This is an ongoing problem fr people who use scripts that depend upon named props. You must have props with thsoe names in your bag, or the script(s) will fail.

Hmmm. I'll look into it -- I think most users will find that "help" is now a valid command.

Hi again. I just visited the page and got an idea from the ICQ question I asked: Why not make something that will force the ICQ program to come up when an ICQ number is mentioned, like the mailgrab or URLgrab scripts for example. Just an idea...BTW, you may want to mention when you get ALL of the original scripts debugged (from that server change)...Not the new scripts though, we all know those are still messed up. See ya. Ragnarok c==X<>====>

Ragnarok <>

If ICQ can be launched from a URL, that would be easy to do. There is a small ICQ "msg" command in the BetaTest group. It requires you to know the ICQ # of the person you're contacting, of course.
Wed, 30 Sep 98 at 22:21:17

OK.... MY In my Cyborg.ipt file when i put some things in do i have to leave a like a line between every one because every time i have put some thing in it wont work like "Allscray" It wont work and um..."Spot Light". but i just wanna know maybe if u can get me a file that has some of that stuff that "will" work without using BOTBOT and just give it to me cuz i am and have been having bad trouble with my Cyborg file. I guess ill get an answer from u BYE BYE

"Allscray" is a room script, not a cyborg script...

Are scripts on? Did you log off and log in? Is it named "cyborg.ipt" or "cyborg.ipt.txt"?
Thu, 24 Sep 98 at 21:53:11

I just downloaded a BotBot premade cyborg. Yet when i try to use any of the scripts they wont work. I have made sure that scripts are on and draw was on in the room. I looked for the chatstring to make it work but when i use it it just says that word. What should i do?

Hello Dr.x I'm sure you've seen me here a few times(-; I have a palace script question to ask you.What I am trying to accomplish is a room script that will stop the cyborg "clean"script.Of coarse I still want to be able to clean the room but I want it limited to only certain people who can.Another question I have is..I wrote a timer script as a room script and as a cyborg script,the problem is that it's 90 seconds long and I cant seem to be able to figure out a simple way to stop it.Any advise would on these questions would be very much appreciated. Two other things that may interest you,I found a typo in the brbfly that doesnt allow the first brb to fly.The alarmexec is spelled alaramexec.Minor details(-; The other is the abyss script I've wondered why when you use that script you say the command outload,the second line is missing "" it just has CHATSTR.Again minor details.On a lighter note I wrote a zap script that puts a flashy X over the target...if your interested in it let me know. Thanx a billion, Mr.vamp

Mr.vamp <>

Thanks! bugs fixed... ("abyss" works that way to match the behavior of the original script....)

The only way to get a class of persons recognized is to turn scripting off in the room and make those persons wizards. Another way might be to cue "clean" off of characters in their user names, but anyone could just put those chars in their name and have The Power to Clean.

Actually, Dr. X, I know that disabling help will take it out of the script that is made...but can't the Custom Help script be written in such a way that it will still provide help nevertheless (An alternative would be making a page that lists ALL the commands and how they work...this will REALLY help with the "giveall" and "randulate" scripts)? Thank you for helping. One last thing: Out of sheer curiosity, I'm wondering if it's possible to make a link on a page that will open up an ICQ option (Add User, ICQ user, etc.). Ragnarok c==X<>====>

Ragnarok <>
Kittanning, PA USA

Another solution is in the works -- a browser window can appear providing help. Clunky if your browser has to boot when you type "??", but lean on the iptscrae side.

As for ICQ, that's a general http question... have you considered asking Mirabilis?

i have a few questions.

  1. On the BotBot page it says
    Welcome Back, Mike...
    Time for a tuneup?
    Custom Help (Still in beta!)?
    is that for me???????
    Yup, it's just a little web script reminder. Don't worry, no one sees it but you....
  2. I know if i edit the cyborg i get from BotBot it voids my warranty but when i try to put a diffrent script in the cyborg it doesn't work why is this i put it in the right place like under outchat or inchat and my cyborg is not overloaded so what could it be?
    No offense, but often people THINK they have put stuff in the right place, or loaded it properly, etc. Those misunderstandings are known as "bugs" and as we all know bugs are a fact of life -- affecting everyone from the most casual user to software giants like Adobe & Microsoft. Without more information about how you started, what you're doing, etc, I couldn't begin to guess what's wrong. Did the cyborg work properly BEFORE you edited it?
  3. CAN YOU PLEASE PUT SOME MORE SCRIPTS IN BOT BOT? here are some pages you can get the scripts from. and

Mike <>
X you know what it is, and here too USA
Thanks for the links but I've seen them before. Sadly, a lot of scripts out there on the net are Bug City -- I've already written here on the House about how sad it is that a lot of scripts provided on websites don't work, only work for particular users, require props that aren't provided, etc. Which also means that in answer to your question #2, you may just have gotten junk code -- and no matter how adroitly you insert it, it will fail.

"Dressing Room" is a ROOM script, and won't do much as part of your cyborg.ipt. To create dressing room, you need to be a wizard or god (on your own server, typically).

Hello again. I have two suggestions for scripts: One, the "reflect" script has a small bug in it...If you say ANYTHING with the word "reflect" (no quotes, of course ;) ), it will NOT say whatever you were going to say and it will say in place of where the people number usually is, "reflect on"...even trying "reflect off" and other things has not helped...I suggest trying to fix the script so that it only activates if the word is said alone, and that it can be turned OFF.
Number 2, your custom help does nothing for those of us who have disabled it (although it DOES save space)...I suggest that, regardless of how we set the options, that the script STILL gives help...this would REALLY help here. Thank you Dr. Xenu for reading this message, and possibly fixing any problems on the page.
Ragnarok c==X<>====>

Ragnarok <>
Kittanning, PA USA

Thanks for the bug report. As for the HELP function, the reason not having help in the file makes the bot smaller is simply that the help info is often (usually!) bigger than the chunk of code it describes. Take that info out, the bot is smaller -- but the info just isn't there any more. Ever wonder why Microsoft Office 98 takes 70MB (or whatever) to install, when Word Vers 3 used to fit on a single floppy? It ain't in the new functions for MS Word, folks. It's all in the little hopping animated help system.

Actually, I don't pass out my chatterbots for the same reason I don't give out my personal cyborg -- they're always experiments and in some sort of state of disrepair. I don't want to have to support stuff that I *know* is broken anyway, so instead I provide the house o bots as a way to help you breed your own.

I tried it on my own server and it allows user scripts, so I don't know what the problem is. Is the file too big? Please help me out.

Sean Barrett <>

Considering that (according to the botbot log) your own browser's cookie buffer was out of memory (usually caused by a looong list of botbot features), I'd have to make "bot too big" my first guess, yeah. - *X
