1This is the changelog for the Idle RPG bot by jotun, jotun@idlerpg.net,
2http://idlerpg.net. Entries are written backwards. That is, items at the bottom
3of the file were added first, and each subsequent addition is placed on a line
4before it. Don't ask me why I do it that way: I do not know.

6Thanks for your interest in the Idle RPG! Feel free to contact me with ideas and
7comments, or post them in the forum on the website for public view.

36--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
37  v3.1.2: released 6/6/04
38--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
39  - applied a user-submitted patch to fix a sprintf() bug (anonymous @ forum)
40  - quest() now calls writequestfile() when it completes

42
43
44--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
45  v3.1.1: released 6/3/04
46--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
47  - fixed 2 typos having to deal with die() messages when reading the config
48    file (meij, et al)
49  - quest() now calls writequestfile() when it completes so that it is

51  - loaddb() now calls backup() before it starts so you always have an
52    up-to-date backup if your bot mangles your db
53  - readconfig() now strips out \r and \n (meij, kylemson, et al)
54
55
56--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
57  v3.1.0: released 6/2/04
58--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
59  - added a config file so you don't have to re-setup configuration options
60    everytime you upgrade. added a function readconfig() to read this file or
61    die() if it cannot be found
62  - SIGHUP will now call readconfig()
63  - added a DELADMIN command to remove admin status from a username. format:
64        /msg bot DELADMIN <account>
65    owner account cannot be DELADMINed. DELADMIN may be limited to owner account
66    depending on configuration (TGS)
67  - added an 'owner' account option. owner cannot be DELADMINed, among other
68    things
69  - added an 'owneraddonly' option. if set, only owner account can MKADMIN
70  - added an 'ownerdelonly' option. if set, only owner account can DELADMIN
71  - renamed disablepeval to ownerpevalonly. if set, only owner account can PEVAL
72  - added missing command line options for %opts options
73  - fq() will limit itself to either 1 message or <= 768 bytes output per call,
74    regardless of $freemessages
75  - added an option to turn off the sending of the list of users automatically
76    logged back in on a bot restart, even if the list < 1 k
77  - added an option to limit the penalty a single event can incur, 'limitpen'.
78    set to 0 to disable the feature, otherwise is taken to be an integral number
79    of seconds
80  - Win32 no longer tries to turn terminal echo on/off via "stty"
81  - tarball now unpacks files to their own directory instead of .
82  - removed unused $v, $debug variables
83  - auto-login would not voice users that it logged in even if voiceonlogin was
84    set, fixed (wogi, et al)
85  - fixed a comment having to do with auto login
86  - $rpreport should not have been adjusted by $curtime, but by
87    $opts{self_clock} to keep it reliable. this may have caused some loss of
88    data as the bot neglected to properly backup its database. so sorry! should
89    now be fixed (many)
90  - item godsend was removing 10% of item's value instead of adding it. another
91    copy/paste error. sorry! (Jim Dew)
92  - fixed a bug that resulted in users that caused quests to fail not being
93    penalized, as they were set as 'offline' before the bot had a chance to
94    penalize them (Jim Dew)
95  - added options to define the size of your IRPG grid, 'mapx' and 'mapy' (Rick)
96  - team battle now shows roll/sum like other battles (anonymous @ forum)
97  - added REHASH command to call readconfig()
98  - added an option to define the number of modes per line to use when voicing
99    users after an auto login. this variable may be overriden by the server's
100    directive (Rick)
101
102
103--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
104  v3.0.2: released 5/30/04
105--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
106  - calls evilness() and goodness() should have been checking against the number
107    of online evil users and good users respectively, not the total number of
108    online users (SickMind)
109  - changed max length of auto-login text to 1k before bot will refuse to send
110  - fixed a problem with the bot penalizing the kicker instead of the kickee
111    when someone was kicked (Preston, anonymous, Soc @ idlerpg.net forum)
112
113
114--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
115  v3.0.1: released 5/29/04
116--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
117  - forgot to add some sort of mechanism for setting up admins for new bots.
118    whoops. bot will now prompt for an owner's account details if it cannot find
119    $opts{dbfile} (Secret, anonymous @ idlerpg.net forum)
120  - fixed a typo in the ChangeLog ;)
121  - Vayanla noted that there was STILL a time discrepancy for very large games
122    (or very slow computers). many thanks to him for his help! this is now
123    fixed
124
125--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
126  v3.0: released 5/29/04
127--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
128  - fixed a bug causing RESTART not to work unless the bot's filename happened
129    to be the same as its nickname
130  - item modifiers as well as time modifiers are now stored in the modifiers
131    file. changed name of tlog sub to clog (time -> character)
132  - changed database write to every minute instead of every $opts{self_clock}.
133    to lower the chance of lost stats, the bot calls writedb() if you request a
134    DIE, JUMP, or RESTART. this should cut down on much of the cpu usage
135  - added a function writedb() which writes out the bot's db from memory so it
136    can be done outside of rpcheck()
137  - the team battle code would choose 6 random users to participate in a team
138    battle, but would not then randomize these users as far as teams go. that
139    is, if a username generally appeared at the end of a keys(%rps) list, and
140    made it into the list of 6 random users, that user would always defend
141    instead of attacking, as he would be at the end of the list. the list of 6
142    users is now shuffled using a Fisher-Yates shuffle, code from The Perl
143    Cookbook (by O'Reilly. a really great read!) (Peter Beentje)
144  - added a "user alignment" feature. users may align with good, neutral, or
145    evil. 'good' users have a 10% boost to their item sum for battles, and a
146    1/12 chance each day that they, along with a 'good' friend, will have the
147    light of their god shine upon them, accelerating them 5-12% toward their
148    next level. 'evil' users have a 10% detriment to their item sum for battles
149    (ever forsaken in their time of most need...), but have a 1/8 chance each
150    day that they will either a) attempt to steal an item from a 'good' user
151    (whom they cannot help but hate) or b) be forsaken (for 1-5% of their TTL)
152    by their evil god. after all, we all know that crime doesn't pay. also,
153    'good' users have only a 1/50 chance of landing a critical strike when
154    battling, while 'evil' users (who always fight dirty) have a 1/20 chance.
155    neutral users haven't had anything changed, and all users start off as
156    neutral. to change your alignment:
157        /msg bot ALIGN <good|neutral|evil>
158    I haven't run the numbers to see which alignment it is better to follow, so
159    the stats for this feature may change in the future (FishyTowel @
160    idlerpg.net forum)
161  - added new item, Juliet's Glorious Ring of Sparkliness, item level 50-74,
162    required user level 25+, chance 1/40, tag 'h'
163  - rather than error when PEVAL produces > 15 lines of output, PEVAL will now
164    queue its text if lines of output created >= 4 or size of text > 1k
165  - LOGIN command now responds via notice rather than privmsg
166  - added "named items," meaning that unique items have a letter appended to
167    them, saying which unique item they are. Mattt's Omniscience Grand Crown is
168    "a," Res0's Protectorate Plate Mail is "b," Dwyn's Storm Magic Amulet is
169    "c," Jotun's Fury Colossal Sword is "d," Drdink's Cane of Blind Rage is "e,"
170    Mrquick's Magical Boots of Swiftness is "f," and Jeff's Cluehammer of Doom
171    is "g"
172  - changed split() on incoming data to split on /\s/ instead of / /; users
173    could otherwise register usernames or classes containing tabs, which would
174    cause the bot to die when reading the (tab-delimited) database (chris young)
175  - changed the SIGHUP handler from '0' to 'sub { };'. should eliminate the
176    "Signal handler '0' not defined" warning (too many to list)
177  - added an item calamity and an item godsend. if you are calamitized, you have
178    a 10% chance of one of your amulet, charm, weapon, tunic, set of leggings,
179    or shield losing 10% of its item value. if you are godsent, you have a 10%
180    chance that one of the above items will gain 10% of its item value (carl
181    wyles @ idlerpg.net forum)
182  - %botnick% in $opts{botopcmd} will be evaluated to the bot's current nickname
183    to avoid opping another, more evil user when the bot's nickname is in use
184  - added an option to give non-admin users limited access to the INFO command.
185    when enabled, non-admin users can use the INFO command to learn to which
186    server the bot is connected and the nicknames of online admins (mike @
187    idlerpg.net forum)
188  - added an option to disallow the registration of usernames and classes
189    containing "non-printable" characters. it's a good idea to leave this option
190    on, as I have had problems in the past with using binary hash keys (TGS)
191  - whenever a non-admin players walks over an admin player on the map, he/she
192    has a 1% chance to bow ;) (mike stewart)
193  - changed sending of WHO and $opts{botopcmd} from numeric 001 to receipt of
194    bot's JOIN
195  - added an option to disable the PEVAL command for users that want to have
196    less than trustworthy admins ;^) (TGS)
197  - Run noted that (undernet?) servers allow you a certain number of "free"
198    messages before output should be limited to 1 message / 2 seconds. fq() now
199    sends as many of these "free" messages as it can, rather than sending only
200    one message per call (Run)
201  - removed some odd sts("MODE $opts{botchan}"); -- not sure why i put that in
202  - added rudimentary netsplit detection, which a) gives no penalty and b) logs
203    users in upon return. will pick up quit messages that match
204    /^\S+\.\S+ \S+\.\S+$/. if your network (or server) does not prefix quit
205    messages with "Quit: " (or some other string), or otherwise disallows faked
206    netsplit quit messages, then users can cheat this at their whim. added
207    option to turn netsplit detection on or off. added option of how long to
208    wait before automatically logging split users out and forgetting they ever
209    existed. added sub checksplits() which will iterate over the list of split
210    nick!user@hosts, remove those which have expired ($opts{splitwait}), and log
211    the user out. would love input on this feature, as i expect bugs
212  - HELP command for non-admins is now less helpful. generates one line of text
213    containing URL for help
214  - attempting to PUSH a user more than their TTL now sets their TTL to 0 as
215    well as generating a notice to the admin. successful PUSH now only
216    chanmsg()s instead of chanmsg()ing and privmsg()ing the admin
217  - $arg[3] changed to lowercased, leading-:-stripped $arg[3] in privmsg block
218  - cleaned up more code. changed (most) elses elsifs where appropriate. cleaned
219    up some logic. dropped all uses of next(). attempted to add () to function
220    calls wherever it was missing
221  - private messages and notices to the bot no longer penalize you (mrChewie)
222  - changed ha() to find access by username instead of nickname
223  - added a finduser() sub to return a logged-in username matching a given
224    nickname.
225  - changed case of $arg[1] after PONG rather than lc()ing it for every
226    comparison (mrChewie)
227  - at least 15% of all online players must be level 45+ for the hourly battle
228    of a level 45+ player to occur (anonymous @ idlerpg.net forum)
229  - fixed a serious bug with the bot not tracking changes to its nick (ie, by
230    NickServ or PEVAL) -- this caused all messages sent to the bot to be
231    penalized (TGS)
232  - added $opts{casematters}, which, when set, will not allow the registration
233    of usernames that already exist in a different case (MeBeHere)
234  - changed db backup, top players report to every 10 hours
235  - added $opts{modsfile}, which is where Time Modifier texts are appended.
236    also, tlog() now debug()s and chanmsg()s an error message if it cannot open
237    the file (MeBeHere)
238  - HOG was only 5-74%, corrected to 5-75% of TTL
239  - added an option $opts{self_clock} which is rather like the old $alrmint var,
240    except this probably works without exploding if you change it. calamities,
241    godsends, etc. should take this number into account when calculating odds
242  - added a server list rather than static server. bot should try each server in
243    the server list twice before giving up (meij)
244  - added a PID filename option, to which the bot will write its PID (meij)
245  - added a few more cattle-themed calamities (anonymous @ idlerpg.net forum)
246  - added a trailing '!' to godsend() text instead of the drab old '.'
247  - added some new quests/calamities/godsends contributed by users. edited some
248    old calamities/quests/godsends. please feel free to post your ideas for more
249    to http://idlerpg.net/forum.php! (anonymous, Afbc0m, anjira, jv, mrChewie,
250    W8TVI, et al)
251  - attempted to scale occurences of HOGs, godsends, calamities, and team
252    battles. HOGs should occur about 1/user/20 days, calamities 1/user/8 days,
253    godsends 1/user/4 days, team battles 1/user/4 days. does this by calculating
254    the odds of a HOG as rand(20*86400/clock) < NUMBER_ONLINE_PLAYERS, odds of
255    calamities as rand(8*86400/clock) < NUMBER_ONLINE_PLAYERS, etc. this appears
256    to work great with at least 10 clients (tested up to 300), but doesn't seem
257    to work as well below that. would appreciate input
258  - debug information is now written to a file instead of STDOUT. bot now
259    daemonizes even though it is in debug mode. added sub debug() which takes an
260    argument of text to write to the debug file (yeoj)
261  - added new item, Jeff's Cluehammer of Doom, item level 300-350, required user
262    level 52+, chance 1/40
263  - bot will try to regain primary nickname if he sees it come open through a
264    /nick or /quit
265  - DELOLD command will removed non-logged-in accounts that have not been logged
266    into in more than N days. format is:
267        /msg bot DELOLD <N days>
268    DELOLD is a p0, admin command (DinTn)
269  - added option to enable a STATUS command. this p0 command gives information
270    on a user, such as level, class, time to level, item sum, etc. useful for
271    those IRPGs that lack a website. format is:
272        /msg bot STATUS [username]
273    if username argument is not passed, returns information on the user issuing
274    command. must be logged in to use STATUS (TGS)
275  - possibly added option to choose which local address/hostname and local port
276    to bind to. let me know if this does/doesn't work (DARKutz, Brad)
277  - added security note to head of file
278  - will not send auto-login user list if text > 2048 bytes
279  - added $opts{botmodes} which will set the bot's usermode to given string on
280    connect
281  - removed reset of last login time on auto-login; last login should be when
282    user last logged in, not when the bot logged them back in
283  - levels after level 60 have a next time to level of (time to level @ 60) +
284    (1 day) * (level - 60). levels below 60 have not changed. the exponential
285    code was getting a little too heavy by itself (TGS)
286  - RELOADDB would log all players out; fixed
287  - sts() & fq() check state of socket before attempting write. if cannot write,
288    outgoing queue is cleared
289  - added new item, Mrquick's Magical Boots of Swiftness, item level 250-300,
290    required user level 48+, chance 1/40
291  - debug messages are now timestamped. added a few extra debug messages, mostly
292    for fun
293  - top player report no longer occurs immediately after startup, but every 6
294    hours from then on
295  - added option to disallow registration of usernames/character classes
296    containing ctrl codes (Skill0)
297  - changed auto-login code from list to hash. would take several minutes to
298    synch to a channel with hundreds of users. now takes < 1s (Vayanla et al)
299  - removed the hard-coded "#G7" from the top players list.. whoops :^) that's
300    been there for some time now, can't believe no one ever noticed (HaRRo)
301  - added option to voice users on login/register. if you +m your channel, this
302    will cut down on spam, but won't allow non-logged-in or devoiced/deopped
303    clients to talk (pingh, wishes, aphade, et al)
304  - added a penalize() sub to make penalties a little cleaner
305  - added %quest hash to keep up with active quest info
306  - added option to write active quest info to file; this makes it readable by
307    outside programs
308  - can now specify multiple words for the advertisement ban, or turn feature
309    off entirely
310  - removed all alarm() code, should now run on any system supporting select(2)
311    (including, but not limited to, Win32). should also fix a nasty, terrible
312    time drift bug; with the amount of processing done in rpcheck(), the next
313    alarm() would come later than expected, awarding the user with idling less
314    than he had actually idled. it's a small amount, but adds up to about 205
315    seconds difference in the clocks after ~9.25 hours (in my tests; will differ
316    from machine to machine). MANY thanks to this bug's reporter, Ville
317    Luolajan-Mikkola
318  - added CLEARQ command, will clear all items in outgoing message queue
319  - INFO shows outgoing queue status, registrations this period, and total users
320  - cleaned up options section a little bit, made a few other code clean-ups
321  - created this file, ChangeLog.txt. the bot's code was getting too long
322  - registrations are now limited to 1 / sec. this should keep floodbots from
323    registering hundreds of accounts
324  - removed ALERT command
325  - removed $opts{admin} array, there is now a field in the db to mark this.
326    there is also a MKADMIN command to set an account as having admin access.
327    syntax is:
328        /msg bot MKADMIN <username>
329    there is no way to remove an account's administrator privileges, save from
330    editing the database by hand (well, there is PEVAL). so, don't assign this
331    lightly. admins have full access to the account under which you run the bot
332  - die() call if could not write irpg.db is now a chanmsg() instead
333  - added an outgoing message queue. all messages are now output at 1 message /
334    second, unless a non-zero $skipq flag is passed to sts(). privmsg(),
335    notice(), and chanmsg() calls pass their $force flag as a $skipq flag.
336    PONGs pass a $skipq of 1 (LexCyber)
337  - fixed a rather huge bug that someone on slashnet noticed. registering
338    \001PING\001 (or any other ctcp) would send that CTCP to the channel, then
339    penalize any who responded. usernames may no longer include a \001
340  - godsends, calamities, and quests were all moved to one file,
341    $opts{eventsfile}. quests are prefixed with a Q1 or Q2, depending on their
342    type; calamities with a C; and godsends with a G. quests are also prefixed
343    by their required coordinates if the quest type is 2
344  - fixed a typo in the Dwyn's Storm text
345  - changed code indentation to four spaces. reworked a lot of code to fit <= 80
346    columns
347  - changed QUEST command and quest() output to be a little more grammar-
348    friendly
349  - item stealing! if you are level >= 20, and you win a battle against a
350    player, you have a slightly less than 2% chance of stealing an item from
351    them. the 2% comes from a) you have a 1/25 chance to attempt to steal an
352    item and b) you have a 50% chance that your item (type is random) is lower
353    than theirs. the reason it's 'slightly less than' 2% is because you cannot
354    both Critical Strike a user and steal an item, so it's (2 - (1/35))%. you
355    cannot steal an item of lower level than your current item (Afbc0m)
356  - fixed duration() to show 1 day without trailing 's'
357  - re-added report of TTL after battle and after critical strike
358  - quest() function now chanmsg()s an error if it cannot open the
359    $opts{eventsfile} file
360  - INFO command now uses privmsg() force flag
361  - added grid! thanks to Joakim @ orkut for this great idea. within the irpg
362    world are all of the players on a 500x500 "grid" or map. every second, your
363    character has an equal chance to step left, right, or neither, and an equal
364    chance to step up, down, or neither. if your character encounters another
365    player, you have a 1/(# of online players) chance to battle. also, some
366    quests require all characters to reach some point on the map. quest
367    penalties and awards have not changed
368  - added REMOVEME command for users. if you are logged in,
369       /msg bot REMOVEME
370    will delete your account. this is a p0 command :^)
371  - added NEWPASS command for users. if you are logged in,
372       /msg bot NEWPASS <new password>
373    will set a new password. this is a p0 command
374
375

377  v2.4.1: unreleased
378--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
379
380  - PEVAL will now error and refuse to send output > 15 lines. this is to avoid
381    my own errors
382
383
384--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
385  v2.4+fixes: released 2/20/04
386--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
387
388  - items are set to 0 on account creation; they were previous undefined
389  - bug with QUEST command fixed; would say no active quest even when a quest
390    was active
391
392
393--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
394  v2.4: released 10/13/03
395--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
396
397  - updated privmsg() function to avoid annoying substr()/uninitialized value
398    warnings
399  - few small bugs in battling bot fixed. a win against bot awards you with 20%
400    of your TTL removed. a loss to bot adds 10% of your TTL to your clock
401  - bot's item sum is now the highest item sum of all users + 1 (mumkin)
402  - fixed RESTART command to clear alarm() before trying to exec()
403  - WHOAMI displays class, TTL (Minhiriath)
404  - CALC command removed
405  - added notice() function which mirrors the operation of privmsg()
406  - SILENT command allows admin to switch bot between 4 modes of silence. in
407    mode 0, bot sends all privmsgs. in mode 1, only chanmsg() is disabled. in
408    mode 2, only privmsg()/notice() to non-channels is disabled. in mode 3,
409    privmsgs/notices to users and channels are disabled. silent mode is also
410    configurable as $opts{'silentmode'}, so you can setup a bot in any channel
411    without it interrupting the channel with its privmsgs (???)
412  - third parameter added to privmsg()/notice(); force flag ignores $silentmode
413  - hard-coded check for OKish URLs to bot's 'http:'-style banning now
414    configurable (sean)
415  - JUMP command no longer penalizes if required argument is left blank
416  - BACKUP admin command tells bot to copy $opts{'dbfile'} to
417    .dbbackup/$opts{'dbfile'}TIMESTAMP; added backup() function to handle this
418  - RELOADDB command allows admin to force bot to reload player database file,
419    rewriting all memory. RELOADDB can only be used while in pause mode
420  - PAUSE command allows admin to place bot into pause mode. in pause mode, bot
421    will update player stats, but will not write database. combined with
422    RELOADDB, very effective for updating all players stats through external
423    script without taking bot offline. new accounts cannot be registered
424    while in pause mode
425  - QUEST command (p0) tells the active quest, its participants, and its time
426    left to completion
427  - ban message for 'http:'-type bans now makes unban-time more clear
428  - things have been sped up a bit. random battles for users level 45+ now occur
429    every hour. random chance for HOG, Godsends, Calamities, and Team Battles
430    were increased by a factor of 5
431  - time between quests upped to 12 hours. level requirement for quests upped to
432    40+. in addition, must have been online for at least 10 hours to be selected
433    for quests. number of persons on quest lowered to 4. quest penalty is now a
434    p15 instead of 2% of your TTL. this makes more sense, as users who were very
435    close to leveling were penalized almost nothing (inkblot et al)
436  - fixed spelling of 'caffeinated' (sean)
437  - botchan variable now shows how to join channel with key (Dan)
438
439
440--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
441  v2.3.1: released 9/20/03
442--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
443
444  - fixed bug with item finding; bad logic sometimes resulted in user not
445    finding any item (thanks mumkin!)
446
447
448--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
449  v2.3: released 8/29/03
450--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
451
452  - Jotun's Fury max level dropped back to 174
453  - added the Drdink's Cane of Blind Rage with item level 175-200
454  - all time modifiers (battles, HoG, etc) are now written to modifiers.txt
455  - function tlog() logs a string to modifiers.txt and returns the string
456  - changed WHOAMI to not use $_
457  - fixed another bug where changing your nick would prevent you from being a
458    candidate for auto-login
459  - LOGOUT command added as a p20
460  - you may now only be logged in under one character at a time. this will help
461    protect the bot from being flooded when a single user signs on under 10
462    accounts, then is penalized and warned 10 times. attempts to login under two
463    names are not penalized
464  - fixed a bug where all of your accounts were automatically logged on so long
465    as they shared the same host as you, regardless of whether they were online
466    before (on bot restart)
467  - there is a 1/20,000 chance of a calamity occuring every 5 seconds. the
468    calamity() function chooses a random user, then smites them with bad luck.
469    the penalty for a calamity is a random 5-12% of next TTL. users are only
470    chosen from the pool of online players
471  - there is a 1/10,000 chance of a godsend occuring every 5 seconds. the
472    godsend() function chooses a random user, then betters their luck. the
473    award for a godsend is a random 5-12% of next TTL. users are only chosen
474    from the pool of online players
475  - there are now 'quests' -- six level 30+ users are chosen to go on a quest
476    at a time. if all six users make it to the quest's end, all questers are
477    awarded by removing 25% of their TTL (ie, their TTL at quest's end). to
478    complete a quest, no user can be penalized until the quest's end. quests
479    last a random time between 12 and 24 hours. if the quest is not completed,
480    ALL online users are penalized 2% of their time as punishment. users are
481    only chosen from the pool of online players (original idea from Nerje; quest
482    ideas from Tristan, brt)
483  - quests are read from file 'quests.txt' every time quest() is called. this
484    allows you to add or remove quests while the bot is still running. quests
485    are not picked in order, but chosen at random from the file
486  - fixed bug in PUSH, allowing to push into negative TTL
487  - db times changed to ctime format in lieu of scalar localtime() (now
488    sortable)
489  - added db fields for total time idled; total times penalized for privmsg,
490    nick change, part, kick, LOGOUT, quest, and quit; and time account created
491  - REGISTER no longer penalizes if you are already logged in and the command
492    fails
493  - fixed 'http:' checking to only look at message text, not entire string
494  - messages passed through privmsg() are split into 450-byte chunks and then
495    passed to their target
496  - bans put into place by the 'http:' method are now removed after 1 hour to
497    prevent filling the banlist. bans are stored in @bans, which will hold at
498    most 12 bans to prevent the bot from flooding on unban. after 12, bans are
499    still set, but not stored
500  - 'license' in header slightly changed
501  - battle results now include item sums and the random number rolled for each
502    player. format is [roll/sum]
503  - bot will try to regain his nickname every 30 mins if it is in use at
504    sign-on. added vars $primnick and $opts{'botghostcmd'}. $primnick is set
505    to $opts{'botnick'} (which may change) on load, and $opts{'botghostcmd'}
506    is a nickserv ghost command string
507  - the bot's nick ($opts{'botnick'} and $primnick) cannot be registered as
508    character names
509  - bot is now a fightable player. his item sum is random 250-650. (someone;
510    mail me if this was your idea). chances of fighting him are equal to
511    fighting any other player
512  - bot now daemonizes when starting (jwbozzy)
513  - fixed duration code to use the correct secs/day (drdink/inkblot)
514  - added a penalty to Team Battle. players will now receive or lose 20% of the
515    lowest team member's TTL (drdink)
516  - changed battling to award tie to challenger, not challengee. random number
517    is also, now, an integer, not a float
518  - every 3.5 hours, a level 45+, online player will battle; this will make it
519    easier for high-level users to level
520  - added function itemsum() to return item sum for supplied username
521  - battle results written to battles.txt are now timestamped (Juliet)

526--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
527
528  * The changes in this version are based almost completely on a patch sent to
529    me by Ed Schmollinger, schmolli@IRC. Many thanks to him for his help! Here
530    are his changes:
531  - SECURITY: added subroutine mksalt to generate random salt for passwds

533    bot's channel and to a specified user, respectively

558    battle (Asterax)
