However, go to http://forum.darwinbots.com/index.php/topic,6285.msg1389000.html#msg1389000 Unzip in the main Darwinbots folder, not any of the subfolders and create the subfolder IM, with 2 folders inside that- inbound and outbound. It is rather large, though. So far, do not put spaces in your IM username.

Getting "[Errno 10060] A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond"

Does this mean the server is down?

Peter is currently not running IM as he finished development on it. We did not have any serious stress test. Still, I am going to start a server up early next month if I can get it to work.

It's also connecting to a different ip(that isn't mine). If necessarily I could also compile it to .exe so anyone has the possibility to run a IM server.

Thanks, that sounds cool. It's been SO long since we've had a good internet multisim, and I miss it!

Sounds like an interesting idea. I think one internet mode server at a time is quite enough for now though, considering the number of active users.

First time posting but I've been following, and fiddling with, Darwinbot's for a few years now. Would be interested in seeing a server go up.

Went looking for a good a-life simulator after watching Richard Dawkins 'The Blind Watchmaker', as he fiddles with a few amazing ones dating back over 20 years now. First assumption was that there must be dozens of amazing a-life simulators out, and there are a few interesting ones, but to me Darwinbot's was definitely one of the more interesting ones.

Looking forward to an internet mode guys!
When is it alive?

Of all the life sims I've found, Darwinbots has been my favorite by far. Keep up the good work, guys

[bump]

Got distracted with the fact that my tablet decided to turn the touch screen off permanently. That is, Nokia did not realize that the only way to wake the screen in windows8.1 is by using the touch screen. Good job guys!

So far I have tried two different Linux hacks to get IM working with no luck. May end up switching providers.

Found two bugs while running leagues
1.) Some meta data tags can break the simulator if you know what you are doing (F1), I have seen this before but was too lazy to fix.
2.) Got div/0 in F2 mode for some reason, I wonder if it is related to my weather mod.

All other leagues completed but yet to post results because ns if weather works correctly.

There's always this option.

I know, what I do not know is will it be 'always on' also, I am still grinding on it (or should I say Koding) when I am not working on other stuff.

Going to log in and give it another go tomorrow, unless of course I check on my experiments tomorrow morning and find a fresh error. I got some tweaks from my Python buddy I got to try.

That is awfully funky, apparently Python uses the indentation itself to signal an end to a block of code.

Hey Peter,

New error that requires your attention:

Quote
an integer is required
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "client.py", line 147, in <module>
File "socket.pyc", line 224, in meth
TypeError: an integer is required

The command line I am sending to it is
Code: [Select]
-in "D:\in" -out "D:\out" -pid  2820 -name "Newbie 8907" -port "????" -server "??.??.??.??"
I can pm you port and ip if you want.

At first I thought it was the "pid" so I put it back in, can I take the pid out completely as we are not using it?

attached is my mod of the server side, not much changed on it except I added a debug line to print to my terminal.

btw Peter, this off the setup bundle with version 2.47.02
