Forum Upgrades

The forum has been upgraded to PHPBB 3.1.5; the latest version. Everything should be functional again. I hope you won't mind the theme change.

Today's outage

Posted 2015-05-10 03:17:01

If you had noticed that the site was unavailable today, you're probably wondering why. No worries, we're not going anywhere. There was just some miscommunication with a domain transfer, and then a number of technical difficulties that resulted in the site being inaccessible.

Sorry about that. Everything should be functional again.

Repository updates

Posted 2015-03-17 17:04:02

Google Code has announced it is shutting down. As such, we will be moving over to GitHub for versioning.
While the Google Code repo will still be available for the time being, it will no longer be receiving updates. If you wish to continue staying up to date, you'll have to switch over with us.

What does this mean for you? It means get your ass on the new repo, duh! RoM bot will still be available via SVN, but now also available over Git or zip packages.

To update your checkout URL, follow these instructions:
1) Delete the .svn folder inside the 'rom' directory
2) Go back a directory and press F5 to reload (this will force TortoiseSVN to check)
3) Right-click the 'rom' directory and choose SVN Checkout
4) For the URL of repository, Enter this: https://github.com/elverion/rom-bot/trunk
5) Remove the '\rom-bot' from the end of the Checkout directory, and now click OK
6) When prompted about the folder not being empty, select 'Yes'.
7) Right-click the 'rom' folder again, and choose TortoiseSVN->Revert; select all files and click OK.

And that's it! You're all up to speed.

Alternatively, you can copy your profiles and settings to somewhere safe, delete the 'rom' folder, and checkout with the new URL. Copy your profiles and settings back in place and you should be ready to go.

MicroMacro 1.91 32-bit and 64-bit binaries now available.

Posted 2015-01-21 19:43:05

There's been a whole lot of changes to the up-and-coming MicroMacro 2. Most notably, we have now updated to Lua 5.3 and now with 64-bit support! You can find the packages on the download page.

Since most of you are still using MM1 for RoMBot, you are not required to perform any updates--in fact, you shouldn't. MicroMacro 2 is still in development and not many scripts are available yet.

.htaccess updated & anti-spam measures

Posted 2014-12-27 06:18:35

Due to the sudden influx of spam, the old list of site bans has been reinstated to help mitigate their access. If a spammer is pestering you, do not be afraid to report them. It will be dealt with very quickly once we know there is a problem.

Additionally, there's been some .htaccess fixes for the redirection problems some of you have been having. You should now be able to access all site features without having to add the index.php to the URL.
