3
4 Whats new, first read the following documents:
5
6 INSTALL
7 README
8 BOTNET
9 UPDATES1.4
10 tcl-commands
11
12 All of these documents combined will fill you in on the latest changes to
13 eggdrop in version 1.4.xx -- This series is alot like the 1.3.xx series, so
14 this file may not be needed for you.
15
16 Alot of things have changed in this version so at a minimum read the
17 UPDATES1.4 and BOTNET text files. UPDATES shows whats been added and fixed
18 along the way. BOTNET gives a comprehensive step by step guide on linking
19 bots and the new bot flags.
20
21 CAUTION:
22
23 1. Before you start the bot for the first time BACKUP your
24 userfile if this is an upgrade from a previous version.
25
26 2. DON'T USE YOUR OLD CONFIG FILE.. MAKE A NEW ONE.........
27
28 SHARING
29
30 Sharing has changed a little. You will notice that a resync
31 buffer is kept for share bots when they disconnect. This allows
32 for them not to have to send the entire userfile again when they
33 reconnect. This is a much more effient approach to syncing the
34 user files.
35
36 BOTFLAGS
37
38 Bot flags have changed. It is recommended that you read the
39 BOTNET document to learn more about linking bots. Major changes
40 in how you configure a passive and aggressive bot.
41
42 USERFLAGS
43
44 User flags have changed. You still have the basic flags but
45 others have been added. Some changes to this are that if someone
46 has a global +n they will automatically be given all the global
47 flags available. You will also notice there are no more capital
48 letters; each flag has its own unique letter. An example is the B
49 flag, in previous versions, it stood for a botnet master. The new
50 flag is t. For more information on these changes, see the .help
51 whois for a list of all flags. 1.3.24 introduces a new flag for
52 +stopnethack procedure flexibility: +w.
53
54 LANGUAGES
55
56 Almost everthing the bot says now is in language file. This
57 should allow the bot to be more versatile for other people that
58 do not speak english. As soon as we start getting the
59 translations in there will be a directory on ftp.eggheads.org
60 that will contain ready to use language files. Look for it real
61 soon.
62
63 COMMANDS
64
65 .voice and .devoice commands where added in dcc chat. This will
66 voice a user on a channel if the bot is oped. Likewise for the
67 .devoice command.
68 .email is now support in userinfo1.0.tcl so if you want emails to
69 work, use this :)
