Suggestion about Bot check (in General)

Can an addition be made in the bot-check such that it be followed with an audio indicator in order to bring to attention of the player? It has happened to me a number of times that I was surfing so other page and was penalized for failing to take the test in time.

The Veri script had one. You could look at modifying that.

Not quite sure why I signed off there. A few too many emails, I think.

Yeah, I did that a few times. Fight, fight, fight, switch tabs, read some news, and come back to an expired bot-check.
It's even worse at work where I'll squeeze in a few fights at a time while I'm waiting for something to finish and as soon as it does I'm busy with that.
You'll just have to pay more attention like I do now :)

I do that periodically as well, since I keep Chat open in a separate window.

I may be wrong, but isn't the whole idea of the Bot Check that you have to pay attention? Otherwise could you not be running a bot and be alerted whenever a check comes up, pass it, then hand back to the bot to carry on?

i don't think a bot is required at all now that we can hold down the enter key and fight repeatedly. a stack of dimes on the enter key might just do the trick and with a sound notification it would be perfect!

What I would want is for just one check to get marked a failure if those 2 minutes are up. Restart the timer at two minutes, with a fail when the player does something.

Okay the bot check is essential but seems excessive. Imagine a ding every time you get one. No thanks.

I remember Veri's script having a really annoying sound that alerted you of botchecks. I always turned off my sound the first time I got one.

Can botcheck be added to the spellcheck? Serially.
