The CONFIGURATOR and Z-INSTALLER are here !!

More fixes.. more commands.. more features..
and this time the newbies are gonna love it ! ;-)

New feature highlights are:

    * The Configurator - Config file editing from within Z-Bot.
    * Z-Install - Installs Your choice of TWX Proxy 2.04 or 2.05 (for Win7+), Putty Telnet Client, Z-Bot and the ZedPack, with shortcuts.
    * The Macro Command Looper - Run macros and commands automatically, many times.
    * Much more...

You can download Z-Installer from Z-Installer

This download includes the latest ZedPack and Z-Bot 2.12, TWXProxy2.04, TWXProxy for Win7, Putty Telnet Terminal, all contained within the Installer.
All elements of the install are optional.
Z-Installer will also optionally configure putty for Tradewars using a reg file to edit the registry (supplied for your perusal).

EDIT:
Here are some script updates (from early 2014).
Replace the installed scripts with those contained in this zip file after installation).
Z-stuff

Z-Bot had a bad habit of regularly getting lost on a disconnection.
I have revamped the routine that handles disconnection.
The updated Z-bot.cts is available now on my teamspeak server.

I will be continuing to release beta versions of the Z-Bot and ZedPack scripts (between releases) on my TeamSpeak server in the filebrowser section of the TradeWars channel as fixes and improvements become available.
These updates are usually frequent, and its just easier for me to stick them there until I am ready to do a proper release.

I have a forum area for Z-Bot on my website where error reports and suggestions can be made. Also downloads are available for my scripts and other tradewars related scripts and files.

Just another thought.
Yesterday I had a young fella express interest in playing Tradewars.
He had never seen the game before, let alone played it. His interest was based on being in channel as we were talking about it.
So I said I would help him.

I directed him to download the new Z-Installer. After the download, it took us about 5 mins and he was at the command prompt with Putty, TWX, and the Z-Bot all purring away in the background.. a few minutes later I had him pair-trading.

The experience was easy and painless, and he has expressed interest in continuing to learn.

A new player, with absolutely no software for Tradewars, and no idea on how to get set up for a game, let alone play it.
This is the exact scenario the Z-Installer was designed for, and it works.

I have released an update to fix a couple of problems.

Version 2.12 is available for download in the downloads area (link in first post)



I have also made the registry configuration for putty an optional part of the installation. (default is to configure it if putty is installed).

It still uses the reg file (supplied for your perusal) to do the registry edit.

Which version of TWX 2.05 are you bundling? I'd prefer it be the one that I shared with you, even though the documentation isn't finalized.

Its not that one.. its the one I use (as I know it works).
I became worried after I received it from you that the compiles may not be compatible with previous versions.. I was in the thick of it with programming the bot so I didn't get around to testing it. I should have spoken to you about it..
I'll check it out asap.. with a view to putting it in the next release..
you can catch me voice on teamspeak if you are geared up for it..

There were a couple of problems with the Installer. I have had to update again.
2.14 is available for download.

Z-Installer was not overwriting target files. So that a bot update looked good but did nothing.

Z-Installer was attempting to configure putty when the checkbox was unticked.



small changes to the bot and z-login.

ok as far as I am aware there are no more problems with the Z-Bot as of 2.14. (wishful thinking, sure...)

If you are having any problems with the Z-Bot or it's support scripts please let me know asap... otherwise i'll have to find something to break ;)

for those who cannot run the installer (Linux users etc) here is a link to download the latest ZedPack.

http://archysportal.com/files/ZedPack215.zip

The latest installer includes the same files as in this zip.

if you have 2.14, the changes are NOT significant enough to warrant a download.

here is a trigger dump I had when i did a shift-C to cap

i had nobody in the sector to cap and the the script kind of waited for a trigger. i had to keep pressing keys, displaying info and what not to get it to trigger to say no targets.

some compatibility issues have been brought to light when using Z-Bot with Mombot corpies and using the switchbot command. These issues are being worked through and the updates are currently appearing on my teamspeak server for those who need them before the next release.
Bear in mind that these are betas and that I am good at breaking things..

Updated files can be recognised by date comparison to what you have, and they usually start with z- and end with .cts.. Z-Bot.cts and Z-Figmon.cts are up at the moment.. more may appear.. or these may get replaced with later updates..

Archy,

A couple things as I play around with TW after... say, 20 years...

I installed your pkg without a hitch, and after I understood how all of it sync'd together I was logged into TWGS game B... then I got all cocky...

I was wondering how I do port pair trading (mainstay of TW). I saw a lot of fancy scripts for doing stuff I am no where near getting back into yet, but nothing about port trading. On a side note, do you have a newbie guide to using the script to do the basics?

Second, for some reason, the login script keeps unloading after doing its thing and shift-k no longer works.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Bre

Anyone know if there is source (.ts) available anywhere? Don't see it on Archy's, would love to be able to poke around and make some minor tweaks for special situations.
