Of course my bot is not about trains, but this is the best analogy I came up with.

One thing I have noticed by accident (didn't delete some tabs when copy/pasting) is that the site lets you hang seeks off gotos, which might help keep things clean? There's no natural way to get to the seek hanging off a goto, but it's got an ID and so you can goto it. Still doubling the amount of seeks required, but same thing happens with lack of or statements (no way to do if (mem-x) is "yes" or (mem-y) is "no" in one seek, for example). Main issues with the gotos is that you can't have a goto pointing to another goto (therefore need text for whilst travelling) and that it roughly doubles/trebles seek count? Thinking, starting from station A or C and going to B (tabs denote hangin off previous entry on prior tab amount, as per working offline):

+blue train [0,0]
goto X
<tab> +blue [0,0] ID:X <?PF forget "A" from "inStation" ?>
<tab> text for travelling to station B
<tab><tab> +xnomatch [0,0]
<tab><tab> goto Y
+red train [0,0]
goto Z
<tab> +red [0,0] ID:Y <?PF forget "C" from "inStation" ?>
<tab> text for travelling to station B
<tab><tab> +xnomatch [0,0]
<tab><tab> goto Y
+arrive at B [0,0] ID:Y <?PF rem "B" as "inStation" ?>
text for arrival at B

Actually, if it's a location you're in, there's only one of those at a time, so you'd use rem "B" as only "inStation", but if you want multiple items in that memory (such as tracking multiple people in one memory), it's hoops to jump through. Much like copying the first line of seek chains if there's a goto option, to prevent breakage, using lots of if (mem-x) is not "Y" to get around lack of or, or duplicating responses to again get around lack of or.

There's certainly lacking features that you have to work around, unfortunately, sometimes by lengthening things.

You can have a go-to place pointing to another go-to, but can't have the second go-to pointing to a third. I think this was a fairly recent change because I don't feel like it used to be this way, but a noticed it working a few months.

Really, Emily? That's excellent to hear. Probably to get around the kind of issues I had. So it can be done without the extra step. I am 100% certain old behaviour was 'too many goto error if any responses - even those that won't fire due to AIScript - have a goto'.

Here's a question, does anyone have a syntax highlighter for Forge text files? I've been making my own with mixed success, but if one is already out there that would be great.


NEW 1 month ago #839

Pretty sure that's how it works now. I don't know when it changed. Early this year, I think.


NEW 1 month ago #840

Not me, Zeig.I'd be interested in one for notepad++ or similar!


NEW 1 month ago #841

Anyone have any idea what caused the site downtime over the last week or so?


NEW 1 month ago #842

i cannot chat with any of the chatbots can you?


NEW 1 month ago #843

I was able to start a few chats this morning but they were dropped quickly. I don't seem to be able to get back to them at the moment.


NEW 1 month ago #844

I would like to know too.


NEW 1 month ago #845

So, the website is fully functional finally?


NEW 1 month ago #846

Looks to be back, Palacinkyman. Not unheard of for the server to be wobbly after an outage, but going passably so far.


NEW 1 month ago #847

Nothing new?


NEW 1 month ago #848

I noticed that the bots were deactivated for a few days. I know this really cool bot that has much more advanced knowledge. To chat with it you guys can visit its website and click on the button at the bottom the screen as you've entered the website: https://alexandrabot.com
