From a bit that I read most chat bots allow you vb scripting.
Which is something pretty simple :-D
The true challenge will be to get a chat bot working fine on linux so that I can develop on it!
With vb scripting I could do many of the stuff that we want!
For example: include ladder, anti-hack information ingame
instead of people going \stats [nickname]
the do: \m infobot stats [nickname]
and you get the bot to give you the ladder information for the user! (Simple and clean no need to access the pvpng server)
Also you do \m infobot status and you get a short version of the status page ingame just drop the 2 middle columns!
With a bit of more clever programming it should be possible to do \m infobot gamestatus
That returns the status page only for the game that the user is inside!
It probably requires a \con | grep [user] to find the current game and then filter the results. But it should be doable.
This might not work always (like when 2 games share the name) but would be better than nothing
About the Icons:
I believe we could even automate the merge of the two icons!
So we would have to make only 3 axes and then automatically merge them to the flags!
Similarly we could do for all clans...
I'm not an expert with icons though, but I'm sure some googling will give us enough insight on the matter!
I like the Personal Icons idea too but that would increase the work load on admins!
While the other ideas are easier to automate...@iL
, The chatbot idea come to me because of the hosting bot and trying to find a way to incorporate the ladder without you giving me access to the server.
did a great chat bot that we can play games with war2 cheats!!! Back in kali we used to play such games and were super fun!!!
As u2 seem to be the most experience chat bot users I would appreciate any guidance for the topic.
probably I will only need her to extend this page: http://ladder.war2.ru/player.php?player=u8t3io3p
to include the ELO statistics of the players
Then with vb I can mine it without any permissions :-D
I won't even need a db access or admin rights to do all that!
ps: the icon chat bot requires admin rights in order to set the icon.
