This is my favorite prop generator script, it uses
pictures to show the current props and buttons.
NOTE: I did not create these pics, I forget who
did, if you know, drop me a line and I will accredit them here.
The Pics needed :
The easiest way to install the Prop Generator is to
download the Prop Generator
with Refresher Room Script. This script goes directly into
your pserver.dat (pserver.pat) and allows you to `duplicate new
generator rooms from there. Just shut down your server and open
you pat/dat file in a text editor, scroll down to the bottom and
paste in the whole room script just after the last ENDROOM
and before the last END. If you dont want to use the Refresher
bot you dont need to, but having installed in all the rooms will
save you alot of work if you ever decide to use it later.
NOTE: ALWAYS keep a backup of any important file,
Alternativley, you can create the prop generator online,
without editing your pat/dat file. This should probobally only
be used by people who dont have access to shutdown/restart to
thier remote pserver etc... Create doors in roughly these positions.
The "10's place" number spot needs to be
ID 5, and the "1's place" spot needs to be ID 6, no
other spot IDs matter. The Reset Counter door usuall holds the
Remote pic, and the number spots hold thier respective pics. If
your not comfortable doing this online, direct editing of the
pat/dat filke is recommended.
Get the cyborg script "pid"
to give you the propid's for prop generators.
The Refresher Bot
The Refresher Bot script is used to backup and restore
all your prop rooms automatically.
Sometimes your PServer's propfile will corrupt, or
you changed servers but didnt want to copy a 30 MB prop file,
or your prop room props just get purged, well when that happens
and all your prop rooms go blank your in trouble. Thats when your
glad you had the props backed up. For those of you who dont know
how Palace props work... When you wear a prop, you send the prop's
specific ID number to the server, the server looks in its prop
file and sees if it has seen this prop before. If it hasnt, then
it asks your palace client to send the prop to it. If the server
has seen the prop, or when it recieves it , it then sends the
ID to all the clients in the room, and thier client performs a
similiar check on thier own prop file, and if not found, request
it from the server. Scripts can manipulate props by thier ID numbers,
wich is what the prop generator does, sets your props to a specific
set of prop IDs. The problem happens when the server forgets some
props, by means above, and tries to show them to users who havent
seen them either. The user doesnt get any props, but its ok, because
you had a backup! Didnt you? = )
*NOTE* The Refresher Bot will NOT work with any prop
generator oher than the above, it CAN be edited to work, but would
require knowledge of iptscrae
To backup your props in a file, run the refresher bot,
then duplicate your palace.prp file, renaming the duplicate something
like "Prop Backup -10/99", then when needing to "reshow"
the props to the server, just rename the "Prop Backup 10/99"
file to palace.prp and run the bot again. (For a leaner, meaner
backup, purge your propfile before running the refresher bot the
first time thru.)
