Unread post TWX + 3 days = Crying Buddha
I have been trying to try and use scripts for 3 days to no avail. I dont think im even getting TWX to load correctly. The instructions also seem to vague, maybe it is just me since allot of people are currently using the program.
ok,

Ive downloaded the file and unzipped it to my desktop.
Then it says load up your favorite Telenet, which i use "Putty" (I also downloaded TERATeRM and SWATH and nothing) to play on telnet://ice9-tw.com:2002. Does that mean just open it? or try and log onto the server?

Creating a database i think ive done at least a few dozen times. I try changing ports and such, sometimes ill get an error and sometimes it closes fine. Is it saving the info? I click the data base and i drop down "Buddha" which it saved and it gives a port 23 error and closes on me.

"The best approach to take is to pretend there is a game server at the address 127.0.0.1 on port 23". That i can do with my telenet.. But nothing comes up with the proxy. this is where i am most confused.

And lastly i have no idea how to connect to everything together using my telenet to server using a proxy. Help is much appreciated. Step by step would be wonderful. No code experience except from basic, like 15 years ago.. Thanx again.

You will connect to TWX from ZOC/Swath/Telnet or other helper using IP 127.0.0.1 Port 23 (default, can be changed)
The below is the settings for connecting to Ice9. The info in red is the stuff you change for your game. If you have everything set correcting and you get the screen that says your connected either right-click on TWX icon and select "connect" or in the helper just hit $c and it should log you in. If this is not working let me know and maybe we can connect in a game or ICQ to work through this.

Thanx. and i typed everything shown with my Username and the password i use. and i still get the "Unable to bind a listening socket on port 23" and if i go into the second tab (program) and change the port and click ok, it closes the window, it seems without problem. and i open the ice game and even tried using $ and nothing. And i right Click over twxproxy.exe, and i get the normal "Open", "Run as Admin", and such.

ok , this use to be on a sticky at the top of this thread , but got removed because someone thought it no longer was needed.

First of all .. NEVER put twx proxy in the desktop , that only leads to major problems later in debugging script problems.

Here is the Swath-N-Twx Docs.txt info you requested.

I have been cleaning up troubles from a handful of players ..
seems someone is teaching how to install twx proxy
(the blind leading the blind).
To properly install software , let its installer choose the path or it must go into the Root directory structure :
C:/ directory style , not on the desktop , the desktop is for short cuts.
That leads to bigger problems.

I suggest C:/DownLoads for anything you download
and C:/UnZipped for anything you unzip.
So TWX would probably end up in C:/UnZipped/TWX_Proxy

Post Setting up Swath & TWX
I use Swath and TWX , so this is my setups.
This will make the transaction that much easier for Swath users.

Start both TWX & Swath , now every game you play you will need
to make a database .. one in Swath and one for Twx.
Use identical names (eg. VidsB : server name and game letter)

Swath will store This info normally in My Documents directory.
Twx will store it in twx/data.

Ok , Now lets setup ..

In Swath .. Each new game I have to set these (they default to other settings)

in Game Options :
Game ID --- make sure it is not set (not needed if using Twx always)
Hostname/IP Actual game Server address
Port Actual game Server port
Username or Password Leave blank
Sectors: (game max sectors)

Auto Login: NO <-- this is important
Run init script UN-CHECK <-- also important

Game Proxy settings <--- the MAIN change
Hostname/IP localhost and Port 6060 (for twx listening port)


So Twx scripts don't conflict with Swath
In Game Options / Miscellaneous
turn Haggle Setting OFF
Under Preferences / General
turn TransWarp when ready OFF (uncheck)

Ok , done here ..

Lets SetUp TWX now ...

Right click the icon in tool bar .. setup/program tab
first listening port is defaulted to 23
change this to = 6060 (needs to be different for each swath/twx combo pair , can be 6060,6061,6062 etc.)
Then check only these settings on this page :
Broadcast ...
Cache ....
Then go to server Tab
Add to make DataBase
Fill in name of game (database to match swath one)
server address (real one)
port (real server port)
sectors
check Use login script
for now leave as is (later get 12_login from the Vids script pack)
Login Name
Password
Game letter
OK
OK

Now Back to Swath :

Press ON the LiteBulb & Parse incoming text and Game Proxy Mode.
Now CONNECT on Swath ( Making sure you see [Registered to #XXX] [Proxy] <-- This is now visible)
You are Not Online Yet!

Now lets go Online :
Double click green ball (TWX in Tool Bar) and connect for real.

Once in game
Check your CN Settings .. type CN and check options
1 - ON , 2 - off , 3 - off , 4 - anything other then 0 , 5 - on
6 - Yes , 7 - No , 9 - SPACE , A - Compact , B - No , C - Off

or Run _vid_startup found in the Vids script pack

Then its a matter of making macro's and ready your system for launching scripts.
In Swath Preferences / Scripts / Page 2
make sure TWX Proxy settings Script directory is pointing to your TWX scripts.
and at Top of Swath , the Tab marked Scripts / Script Tools / Reload All Scripts.

Thats about it.

Thank you for your help @ Toyman.

And thank you also Vid Kid.. Your Guide to "TWx for slow and stupid Buddha's" was deliciously awesome. Everything seems to be working well. And even set the CN's. Thanx again!

Buddha :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

I set an age limit for stickies, regardless of how useful or who posts them. Please don't take jabs at me, in a passive-aggressive manner. Rather confront me openly or privately, and I'll explain my actions in kind, or perhaps see things your way and change my perspective.

Regarding stickies: I disclose to you that I hate scanning past the stickies at the top of this forum to read the new or updated threads. At one time there were about 5 stickies, and while none of them had any new posts, they remained at the top of this date-sorted forum. I set an expiration of 1 year for the really important ones (yours among them), or 6 months for the somewhat important ones. For threads like this one, where a pervious post/thread/sticky answer the question posed, reply with the appropriate link. No need to throw mud at the moderator in the process.
