The Message Bot


#1542

The bot keeps showing 0 minutes as time online, is the issue on my end?


#1543

Bib should chime in here first. I believe I suggested that individual timer request a long time ago and I think he might have planned to implement it in the new version of the bot.

Found this on Discord: - Updated Countdown for version 7, /timer and /done are now per-person as requested. (The Message Bot)
LOL, and that was almost a year ago! I wanna use the “new” bot!!!


#1544

Yea… “new” bot… Christmas break… just one more week… It will happen ._.

This is in analytics? If I remember correctly (it’s been like a year since I looked at that code), it will show 0 minutes for players who joined for the first time after the bot was loaded until the bot is reloaded since analytics pulls everything from the logs.


#1545

Again, apologies if someone else has requested this before:

Dice rolls. Is it possible to have a feature where a player can type ‘dice roll 1’ Or ‘dice roll 2’ , Etc. and have the bot respond to the player with a random dice roll amount?

So, to clarify ‘dice roll 1’ would mean randomly rolling 1 die, ‘dice roll 2’ would mean rolling 2 dice, etc.

The bot would respond with ‘(player name) #’. The player name would be necessary to avoid confusion, since more than one player could be rolling dice at the same time.


#1546

Just a 6-sided die? or should you be able to roll larger dice? like a d20 or a d77?


#1547

It should have a random command. Not dice, just random.

Like a random integer from 1 to n


#1548

How about both? Doing /dice (/die sounds a little… grim) would give 1-6, or you could do /randomnum 1 100 (or whatever numbers).


#1549

Hm. I was just thinking 6 sided… I don’t know that very many people would use a d20 for this would they? I was thinking of functionality specifically for some mini games I’m doing. (selfish me)


#1550

Neat idea! I think I’d go for something like this:

/roll => Rolls a 6 sided die once, shows results
/roll 2 => Rolls a 6 sided die twice, shows results
/roll 5d3 => Rolls a 3 sided die 5 times, shows results

Shouldn’t be too difficult…


#1551

Aaand… it wasn’t :smiley:

The dice extension has now been added to the 6.x bot, and will be present in the 7.x bot for release.


#1552

Yay!! Thanks, Bib. That just changed everything for me. :smiley: :thumbsup:


#1553

Yeah, Analytics. It has shown me 0 for every player ever since I started using the new bot. Reloading it doesn’t change anything.


#1554

This smells like a bug, I’ll look into it. Thanks!
