Possible bug - bots clashing?

Possible bug - bots clashing?

Postby Cale Vinson » Sat May 01, 2010 5:21 am

At the moment, I have a very crude bot that just echos back what it hears, as per the wiki example.

It was working fine.

But today when I logged it into IamTown I received the following error messages (some hand-edits to remove any identifying information):

What had changed from the last time I did this is that there was an apparently-unattended Suzette bot running in IamTown.

I then ran my bot in another bot-enabled city, and received no error-messages, so my guess is that my bot and Suzette may have been interacting somehow. More precisely, I know they were interacting (Suzette responded to the "Iam" startup message), but the interaction seems to have "gone rogue" as it were.

I saw this in the log this morning. It looks like some information was missing pertaining interactions, but I couldn't tell from which side. I'm also surprised the bots tried to interact spontaneously. I'll have to take a little time to figure this out.
