This is just a bug fix release. No new features.

• Initial connect fails when launching Mombot after a manual disconnect.
• Same database is loaded on second launch.
• Multiple instances of the the same script conflicts.
• Sometimes a script will leave TWXP in Deaf Mode.
• Mombot crashes when trying to view the stats screen.
• Memory leak associated with new TrayIcon.
• Logon script runs even if unchecked in the config.
• Sector index out of bounds, on several commands.
• Logging permanently disabled on write error.

That is all the bugs I am aware of. If you find any new ones, Please report them here:
https://github.com/MicroBlaster/TWXProxy/issues

This is not a full release, you need 2.05.73 from here:

Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible.
Instead… only try to realize there is no spoon.

Hi there.

Just wondering why there's a DLL in the Zip file:
Code:
TWXP.DLL
TWXP.EXE


..am I missing something?

The Library (DLL) is just a collection of icons. You can use any icon file, dll, exe as the icon source. By default it will pull up twxp.dll though.

Hi Micro,

This version has worked well for myself and the corpy I know who also uses it.

The only time I had a crash or something odd was the following:

I run TWX on my VM, I telnet from home to the VM and the VM telnets to the server.

I had a brown out (When power goes off briefly) and my modem reset.

I came back, couldn't connect to my vm, so logged in and TWX proxy had shut.

So I don't know if having a external connection cancel like that cause some issue. Taking note I disconnect/reconnect 10 times a day using SWATH.. so it can't be that simple.

So I don't know what to make of it and I'd probably ignore it for now :)

Perhaps when I have time I'll pull the plug on the modem however i don't see how that's different to pressing disconnect in SWATH.

Thanks,

Hamish

I also had an idea:

Imagine if a person ran a website that scraped all the game details from all the TWGS's.

Then imagine if TWX could download this info in a XML file and have a "quick launch create database" option.. i.e. I want to join SK's server, Game B, and it imports port number, address, warps etc.

And THEN imagine the person who did the programming on TWX happen to also be the person who maintained such a website?? wow what a coincidence and a match made in heaven :)

If we could somehow have a server list in TW proxy and a quick way to join, it might promote a few more people to at least look into other games... or perhaps I'm the only one THIS LAZY? :)

It is actually quite different. If you press disconnect is swath it performs a clean disconnect. In other words, it tells the server it is going to disconnect and the server flushes buffers, etc... If you pull the plug, or otherwise loose connectivity you get a dirty disconnect, and there is lots of trash in the buffers and other problems...

That really would be a coincidence if some guy than ran the website you described also worked on TWX Proxy, but unfortunately he only does bug fixes on TWX Proxy. Maybe he could write a launcher for the website that could launch TWX Proxy and/or Swath... A full directory is part of FirstMate if I ever have time to work on it.

Your right, it is very different, because I lost internet again and it killed my bot (Again).

So the VM to Server connection was ok, but the Home computer to VM is what died. I'm connecting from the external connection IP.

Once I disconnect TWX threw an error which I didn't record and died. I'll do it again soon no doubt and take a screenshot.
