Internet mode "fix" using file synchronisation software
« on: February 10, 2012, 08:54:30 AM »
Yesterday Numsgil and I worked out a way to use file syncing software for IM. It seems to be working okay-ish. Definitely better than nothing. :)

Instructions:

  • Download and install Allway Sync
  • Download This File
  • In Allway Sync, go to File>Import>Import profile (all jobs) settings and load the file you just downloaded. Replace the word "Billy" with your Windows username in each file path which contains the word "Billy."
  • Start by disabling automatic synchronisation on all jobs. Then enable it, one job at a time, starting from the left, with one minute between each enablisation. So, enable it on the first job, wait one minute, enable it on the second job, wait one minute, etc.. You will have to do this every time you open Allway Sync.
  • Start a simulation in DB.
  • Click on the internet mode button and close the DOS window which pops up.

That's it! Your simulation is now connected to internet mode. :D

Please don't use this for a while, I'm trying to work something out.

I have modified the instructions and updated the settings file in the first post. It should now be ready for use.

I'll see if I can get a sim going this weekend to kickstart things

Updated settings file and instructions again. Yeah, they're more complicated, but it fixes a problem I've been having with bots building up in the outbound folder.

You might post the settings file you're using.  (Or I'll post something if I work on this at all tonight).  Not bots or anything, just the settings you're using.  Would make it easier for people to jump in, since tuning a long term simulation is a pain.

I can never get simulations stable.

Yay, I just got a predator prey cycle working without using population caps! :D

How do i do that? Because, it just says Automatic synchronisation is on...


Also I am getting an inbound error and/or no inbound robots

Is https://docs.live.net/DarwinbotsIM up?
