Can't flashing text be both dark and bright colored?l

Yes,,,

~a~k Dark Red on a Green Background.
~a~K Flashing Dark Red on a Green Background.
~A~K Flashing Bright Red on a Green Background.

I though about doing ~AK but then you would ALWAYS have to specify the background color even when it is almost always black.

...ohhh thought of a few booleans that might be helpful to have:

SECTOR.BLACKHOLE[sector] (zero warps out)
No need for this ons, just do:

if SECTOR.WARPCOUNT = 0

SECTOR.DEADEND[sector] (one way both in and out--the same sector both ways.)
You could do:
if SECTOR.WARPCOUNT = 1 and SECTOR.BACKDOORCOUNT = 0

I will add this one though, since it simplifies a common function.

Yea, cool. I was just thinking it would be nice to perhaps take a boolean approach to some of that.


Say, am I missing any TWXProxy versions? I need these to add for selections for the Db.

'v1.1',
'v2.0',
'v2.11',
'v2.03',
'v2.04',
'v2.05',
'v2.06',
'v2.06.05a',
'v3'

Oh also, last night I had a thought for either a new global var, maybe as a 'setVar b' or as a new field to the main setup menu to add the name of your bot so that scripts can have access to it at all times.

setVar b [botname]

or

Bot Name: (placed under the password field or wherever.)

Yeah, there are a lot more versions, there are really only two you care about:

2.05.74 The last version released by EP...
2.06.xx My release. Which originally focused on stability... Now I am adding few new features before I move my focus to v3.00.xx in c#, which does not really exist yet.

Currently TWX does not know your Bot Name, but it is stored by your bot:

Mombot 3.1045:
LoadVar $BOT_NAME

Mombot 4p:
LoadVar $BOT~BOT_NAME

Zedbot:
LoadVar $Z_BOTNAME

I will add a system var for this.TWX does know which bot you are running, because of switchbot, so it should be easy to create a BOTNAME system var. Additional bot support is planned for v3.00.xx (c#), but that is about as far as I plan on going in Pascal.

I'm missing the point on this one. Why would TWX ever need to know your bot name. It is not even aware you are running a bot. TWX scripts that are "botable" by definition know your bot name, though.

Not when it first starts up, you have to enter it manually.

Furthermore, this will make it easier to write universlal functions to call upon the bot names of others or to broadcast your own bot's name--externally to the bot script itself. For example, I have a function in my botKit that does a rollcall, which has all bots check in with you, is really handy to know which bots are currently active, are listening, and to get the bot names of your corpies when you forgot someone's bot name.

Yes, but different Bots store the name differently. I can provide a system var that will work reguardless of what bot is running.

SwitchBot is now part of TWX. It is essentially a command that a bot can use to terminate itself and load another bot. In TWX 3.0 (c#) I plan on adding a lot of functionality like this to TWX for bots to use.

Questions, are these commands? Does not look like they could be used in coding and I cannot track down where I might have got them from, so thinking they are typos...

greater, greater=, less, less=

They are technically commands:

Code:
Purpose: Compares two values to see if the first is greater than or equal to the second.

Syntax: isGreaterEquil var {value1} {value2}

var: A variable to hold the result of the comparison.


...but they are intended for internal use. You would use them in a conditional statement:

Code:
If $A >= $B
echo "Yes"
else
echo "No"
end


This actually compiles to something like:
Code:
isGreaterEquil $TempVar1 $A $B
Branch $TempVar1 :TempLabel1
Echo "Yes"
goto :TempLabel2
:TempLabel1
Echo "No"
:TempLabel2


Branch is the only "Real" conditional statement TWX understands.
