Frodbot (in General)

Frod May 15 2005 7:20 PM EDT

As some of you might remember, CB1 has a feature called "Lumpbot". Lumpbot is a pseudo-player that hangs around in chat. You can PM her with commands like "whatis exec" or "whatis mcm" to get stats and forge times for items, "admins" or "chatops" to find out if any are on, etc.

Lumpbot was written and maintained by Lump, who doesn't appear to be on CB2. To fill the gap, I've written Frodbot.

He's incomplete (weapons only, armor underway), and he'll only be on when I'm around to keep an eye on him for now. But feel free to try him out, chatmail me with comments or suggestions.

Oh, and by the way: he's allergic to carp.

Nice work, Frod. He's not much for conversation though. ;)

Thank you soo much Ford...this rocks!

=> Frodbot hello
<Frodbot> Here I am, brain the size of a planet and they ask me to hello.

deifeln May 15 2005 7:25 PM EDT

<Frodbot> I don't know what a 'carp' is. Sounds awful.

Blarg May 15 2005 7:26 PM EDT

you need to add funny things about admins like lump did ;). Otherwise great.

Thanks Frod! I might finally have a reason to go into chat!

=> Frodbot whatis Jonathan
<Frodbot> I don't know what a 'jonathan' is. Sounds awful.

Might need some adjustments, but so far Frodbot's looking great!
He's the rebel of CB2! ;p

<Frodbot> I don't understand 'hi'. Try 'help' for a list of commands.
=> Frodbot help
<Frodbot> I understand the following commands: help, whatis <itemname>.

if you want the lists of some helpful commands then you can email me and i will send them, some could be out dated but i'm sure they could still help.

Quite cool but will be nice if it has more to say. :p Good job!

Frod May 16 2005 11:23 AM EDT

Armor added. Tats and spells still to come.

It would be really nifty if it could calculate average battle rewards. Just noticed a mistake in that post though, 1.667 should be 1.167.

Frod May 16 2005 4:22 PM EDT

Avoid: done.

PM with 'abr <cash1> <cash2>'.

Synco May 16 2005 6:29 PM EDT

so everyone knows, wanna add the avg cash rewards to the list of command when ppl type "Help"?

This thing is awesome.
