Zippy Talk

Postby mutation » 19 Nov 2015, 03:07

I have been using zippy that comes with winboard for quite some time now to use Sjeng on FICS. Everything is working well, but when I try to use the zippy talk feature, only the first 3 lines are taken from the zippy.lines file and the remaining are just ignored. How should I fix this? I use ^ as the null character between two sayings. Could this be the reason?

From the zippy.readme :
-zippyLines filename
Name of the file Zippy looks in for sayings when -zt is set.
Default: yow.lines. File format: There must be a single ^
character or null character (control-@, ASCII code \000) after
each saying.

In the winboard directory, I created a file called "yow.lines".
Inside, here is a sample :

This is a sample zippy.lines file for xboard/WinBoard 4.0.4 or later.
Text before the first caret, like this text, is a comment.
Hello Mr Bean !
Any similarity between you and human is purely coincidental

For windows, I still use the original winboard 4.2.7 from Tim Mann.
