Whenever you make an update, can you check the manifest.xml? Is the checksum for any of the files changing? Are any of the versions changing? If the checksum is changing, is it different every time you update?
Made a copy of the manifest.xml and updated the bot as it asked. Compared the 2 files, no change. Copied that one also, closed the bot, started it up and updated as it asked, compared all 3 files and there is no chance, all 3 are identical.
Required that you re-download manually, since the bot doesn't download the updater first if there was a change made to it. Hopefully this fixes the problem with the manifest not being changed properly.Code:[11.06.2010] v0.9.5 ----- * NewerthBot now downloads NewerthUpdater before updating if any changes were made to it. * LibBot now returns an UpdateType enum rather than a boolean. * NewerthUpdater now actually works with the new checksum method. Doh! #2
How do i find out my User id?
<user flags="z" userid="202236" >Keshoon</user>
and what are all the flags? and definition of flags?
Edit: Also, Right side of Screen freezes i guess?
settings under tools still does not work... But i think you mentioned that in a previous post
Kinda a bit of a newb here, i have ran stealth bot, and Nbbot, if anyone remembers that on bnet.

Getting the User ID will be done automatically, as will writing inside the newerthbot.xml. Definition of flags will be documented on the Wiki on the GoogleCode page sooooon. There are more important things to get done first. So in other words, adding admins will be done either under the Settings window when its done, or in the channel using the !admin command.
Could you explain what you mean by the "right side of the screen" freezing? When does it happen, and does the bot crash because of it? What exactly is the "right side of the screen"?
Of course.. where the users are...It wont show when someone joins or leave, unless i minimize it, and bring it back up.
It showed me what was behind the users, like my background in 16b color.
I changed it to 32b color, and now it's a nice Grey screen.
But the screen is still kinda frozen... hasnt crashed because of it....
Ima let it run for a day or 2... and see what happens.
So there is no way i can get my user id?
Cause i do !say whats up.. and it says you need the S flag to use that command.
It takes up a lot of resources as well, after running trivia for a while... then crashes.
Edit: well i guess it don't technically freeze.. when a user joins it shows it, but if i click other channels, i have to minimize it and bring it back up.
I Ran it on my other pc, winXP, home.
And it looked way better. I ran trivia, and if no one answered the Questions, it would lock it up here and there, making it impossible to do anything.
I got errors, but wasnt able to open then to look at them. had to alt ctrl del it, to get rid of it on xp.
Sorry to keep editing, posting etc..:but also.. When trivia is on, it gets stuck if no one answers.. Slith_r, and it will sit there, and get slower... and slower and lock up the pc..

You said you were in 64-bit Windows 7, right? I'm not too sure if it has anything to do with it, but I'm leaning towards that it has to do with you being 64-bit. I don't have any computers that run an OS on 64-bit, so it's difficult for me to figure out the cause and solution. If ANYONE has knowledge of how to resolve this issue with 64-bit users, I'd appreciate it if you could drop me a PM regarding it.
You can get your user ID manually by using the XML API by S2Games. You can do so by browsing to http://xml.heroesofnewerth.com/xml_requester.php?f=nick2id&opt=nick&nick=Enkious (If your in-game name is actually Enkious). It'll display your user ID on the page.
But now that you've mentioned it... I totally realized I already put flags on most of the commands, so you can't even use them without placing your name in the newerthbot.xml. I'll try to get the next version up as soon as I can. But I want to make sure the plug-in settings makes it in at the same time.
Regarding the memory usage issue, I'll look up more on using Dispose and IDisposable. I didn't really use it much and I don't really know a lot about it, so I want to make sure I'm using it correctly if I want to try to fix that issue. You'll see it maybe in a few versions depending on how much time I spend reading up about it.
Very nice, the updates will help.
Currently the only thing I see that I can think needs fixing, is when someone in your channel joins a game, their icon changes, but if you switch tabs to friends or clan and then go back to the channel tab their icons are reverted back to their default ones so it doesn't show them as in a game.
I think it just takes up resources, when people don't answer the questions.. can u make it to where, if no one answers the question, it just gives the answer, and continues on to the next question?

[13:08] EnkTrivia: Question #1 of 33: [WHS] I'm ready to die... but you're killing me!
[13:09] EnkTrivia: Hint: M-----
[13:09] EnkTrivia: Hint: Ma----
[13:10] EnkTrivia: Hint: Ma--a-
[13:10] EnkTrivia: Hint: Mad-a-
[13:11] EnkTrivia: Hint: Madma-
Then it lags out...
After the End there... another 30 seconds go by..
you should just make it go...
[13:11] EnkTrivia: The Answer was "Madman" Next Question!
Maybe a !trivia off command as well...
!joinclan don't work.
I don't know if you have implemented that in or not..
Also maybe a !trivia Catagories
it would then say...
[13:11] EnkTrivia: THS (things heroes say) 33. SAH (stuff about hon) 69 etc...
Also, i added more Questions, and made it up to about 102...
But as the bot keeps going threw questions, it slows down my computer, and i have to End the process on it.
It runs fine for a little while... but slows WAAAAY down.
Any news on any updates? like an ETA? or anything? id like to give my members some insite....
Sorry, i don't mean to push you or anything, just wondering.. i know this is your first, and you make it out of fun..
Im sure you will be outstanding, sooner then later. Thanks!
more to add... here is a trivia bot that works for Battle.net.. I don't know if this will help you at all....
This is another one.
I would scan it aswell before opening.
But thats just me.

It's been awhile since I've given a current status of the development. I've been rather busy and distracted by other matters that sort of made me think I was better off pausing development for about a week. But I'm free the majority of this weekend so I've decided to give a quick update on what I WAS able to get done and what I plan to get done this weekend. Here I go!
Settings and plug-in settings: pain in the arse. I wanted to get the simplest way of making settings for plug-ins, but it's going to get complex. I'll be making a specialized class inheriting an interface for each type of advanced setting (Trees, combo boxes, categorizing, etc.). The basic settings (integer, string, boolean, etc.) was rather simple to put in so it'll easily make it in the next update. I understand people want the settings to make admins and flags ASAP so I'll be keeping advanced settings for another update. Things that need to be done regarding this area: general settings, layout construction and saving/remembering settings.
Memory usage: no research done whatsoever. I do know, however, that the memory gets vacuumed when it's looping on the last letter of trivia hints. So it'll be as simple as stopping the timer completely to fix that. I'll still need to research code that commonly uses up a lot of memory and figure out how to use Dispose to fix that. Expect the trivia hint fix next update, expect the other memory usage issues to be fixed after the advanced settings.
Documentation: most satisfied with out of the 3. It's going good, documenting the library isn't as bad as I thought. Documenting everything else onto a wiki, however, is. I can probably blame my perfectionism for that. Not much of a big priority since it doesn't seem like I'm getting much participation for the community regarding plug-ins (which I oh so hoped for at least a bit!), expect to BEGIN finishing in 2 weeks, expect it to be FINISHED in 3 weeks to a month and expect an official release (installer and all that junk) after that!
Keep up the good feedback on the errors, issues and suggestions! I don't think it's gotten more than a week without a good suggestion or a good bug report!
