TMC Mud List Rankings
 
TMC Top 20 Mud List Rankings Razz

http://www.mudconnect.com/top20.html

A script to display, record, and tally TMC Top 20 MUD List Rankings.

Updated Sept 04 2006

Commands:

tmc

downloads TMC Top 20 Mud List Rankings and displays rankings within Zmud

records rankings (if not already recorded) to a text file in the Zmud.exe directory

tmc <m>

displays the mth rankings recorded

where m = 1 to Number of Rankings Recorded

tmc <m> <n>

displays the difference in votes between the mth rankings record and the nth rankings record

where m <= n
where m = 1 to Number of Rankings Recorded
where n = 1 to Number of Rankings Recorded

tmcz

displays the most recent rankings recorded

tmcxz

displays the difference in votes between the two most recent rankings records
(calculate how all the top 20 muds voted the day before)

tmcaz

displays the difference in votes between the least and the most recent rankings records
(calculate how all the top 20 muds voted for the week)

tmclist

displays a list of when the TMC server generated each rankings


Here is an example of the output from the tmc alias:

>tmc

This script uses a VBScript .vbs file in the Zmud.exe directory.

This script uses wscript.exe, that should be in the %windir%\system32 directory, to run the .vbs file.

If VBScript is not an available scripting language on your computer, then you can download Microsoft Windows Script 5.6 here:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/downloads/list/webdev.asp

You have to check "Allow VBScript" in preferences/script parser within Zmud.

Record of Rankings Last Generated



This script will very likely break if someone changes the design of the top20.html page.

The tmc alias without an argument breaks if you are lagging really bad.

If you already used the tmc alias without an argument and wish to see the rankings again then there is no need to re-download the rankings from the mudconnect server, just type the tmcz alias to display the most recent rankings.

The MUD Connector generates its rankings twice a day at midnight and noon (CST I believe) so there is no need to re-download the top20.html page within those time periods.

If you wish to reset all rankings, then delete the tmc.zmud.txt file in the Zmud.exe directory.

I glanced at the html on topmudsites, the script is doable.

How does topmudsites calculate the rankings?

Would I need to store the 'in' and 'out' count, or just the 'in' count?

Just the 'in' count for the rankings. The 'out' count is just for interest.

Import Scripts:

1. save zscript code to a file
2. save vbscript code to the file "topmud.zmud.vbs" in the Zmud.exe directory
3. open zMUD and type: #menu {Settings|Import|Script}
4. open zscript code file

PS-

I updated the tmc zscript code so if a mud name contains a comma (for example: Achaea, Dreams of Divine Lands) then the script won't break.

The tmc and topmud scripts are separate, so there is no problem installing both Twisted Evil

I just tried installing the TMC Mud List Rankings script and it doesn't work for me.

Initially I was getting an error in Windows Script Host "Permission denied" in the vbscript file at line 62: the line with objFile.CreateTextFile in. I noticed it was creating the text file, but it was empty. After trying it a few times and googling the error but not changing anything, it suddenly started working in so far as no error is now generated and a line is written into the file.

This is the content of the file:
#var tmc_rankings {1. BatMUD (7456)|2. MUME - Multi Users In Middle Earth (7387)|3. Dark and Shattered Lands (6589)|4. Federation II (5945)|5. SlothMUD III (5781)|6. Medievia (5155)|7. ZombieMUD (4794)|8. Shadows of Isildur (4299)|9. Armageddon (3679)|10. Mozart MUD (3279)|11. Duris: Land of BloodLust (3148)|12. LegendMUD (2698)|13. Legends of Karinth (2565)|14. Dreams (2556)|15. Evarayn (2539)|16. Abandoned Realms (2418)|17. Carrion Fields (2237)|18. Genesis (2219)|19. Wheel of Time (1919)|20. Aardwolf (1886)|Rankings Last Generated: Thu Nov 23 12:00:08 2006}

It is all on one line. I assume from the code that this should be on several lines, but I don't know how to fix it.

I have also changed all file manipulation zmud commands to use a variable, e.g. #FILE @tmc_file_num tmc.zmud.txt, since I keep FILE 1 open all the time.
Of course, that doesn't solve my problem, but I can share my changes if wanted.

Anyway, %filesize( @tmc_file_num) returns 1, since it is all on one line. This means that the aliases give errors of the form "Note: Record Empty or Input Error" and "Note: Record Empty".

Anyone know if any of those top 20 are mappable by standard zmud mapper configs?(I.E.- Are any of them mappable without complex scripts and constant editing)
Thankya

This is not the right forum for that kind of discussion - this is the "Finished MUD Scripts" forum.

I believe the permission denied error is caused because tmc.zmud.txt is already assigned to another file.

If I type:

#file 3 tmc.zmud.txt;tmc

then I will get the permission denied error.

I would need to type:

#close 3;tmc

for it to work.

You would also get the same error if tmc.zmud.txt has a read-only file attribute.

Also, if tmc.zmud.txt is open with another application (like an editor) when you run the 'tmc' alias, then this may cause a permission denied error.

Nope, it should be on one line and the "Test Input" in the top post should be on four lines.

#var tmc_rankings {1. MUME - Multi Users In Middle Earth (5139)|...}
#var tmc_rankings {1. BatMUD (5178)|...}
#var tmc_rankings {1. MUME - Multi Users In Middle Earth (5203)|...}
#var tmc_rankings {1. BatMUD (5234)|...}

tmc 1 2
tmcxz

If you only have one record, then you will see message: "Note: Record Empty or Input Error"

tmc 1 1
tmcaz

If you only have one record, then the output would be like:

TMC Top 20 Mud List Rankings

1. BatMUD (0)
2. MUME - Multi Users In Middle Earth (0)
3. Dark and Shattered Lands (0)
4. Federation II (0)
5. SlothMUD III (0)
6. Medievia (0)
7. ZombieMUD (0)
8. Shadows of Isildur (0)
9. Armageddon (0)
10. Mozart MUD (0)
11. Duris: Land of BloodLust (0)
12. LegendMUD (0)

Arrow Here is the "Zscript Code" using file #5 instead of file #1

I hope that works. I don't understand using a variable @tmc_file_num for the file number.

Ah, I see. I misunderstood the parameters to the tmc alias.

Regarding the Permission Denied error, you are probably right.

Now that I have two sets of data, my modified code is giving:

Quote:
tmc 1 2

TMC Top 20 Mud List Rankings

1. %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))
2. %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))
3. %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))
4. %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))
5. %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))
6. %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))
7. %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))
8. %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))
9. %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))

15. %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))
16. %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))
17. %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))
18. %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))

20. %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))

What is strange is that it appears to be this part:
Code:
#LOOPDB @tmc_db_vote_1 {#SHOW {%ansi( 2)%db( @tmc_db_rank, %key). %key( %eval( %db( @tmc_db_vote_2, %key)-%val))}}

that is not displaying right. However If I execute this code from the command line I get the correct output. Here is my modified code at the moment (with some variables restored to their defaults for brevity - they are actually all populated fine). You'll see what I mean about using @tmc_file_num... It seems to work fine with a variable. Except that I've just tried your zScript code using file #5 and it works fine for me... *ponder*

Code:
#CLASS {Vote_Scripts_TMC}
#ALIAS tmclist {
  #FILE @tmc_file_num tmc.zmud.txt
  #SHOW {}
  #IF (%filesize( @tmc_file_num) = 0) {#SHOW {Note: Record Empty}} {
    #SHOW {%ansi( 6)TMC Top 20 Mud List Rankings}
    #SHOW {}
    #LOOP 1,%filesize( @tmc_file_num) {#SHOW {%ansi( 2)%i. %subregex( %read( @tmc_file_num, %i), ".* Generated: (.*)~}", "%%%1")}}
    #SHOW {}
    #SHOW {%ansi( 6)Record of Rankings Last Generated}
    }
  #CLOSE @tmc_file_num
  }
#ALIAS tmc {
  #IF (%1 = %null) {#LAUNCH {wscript.exe tmc.zmud.vbs}} {
    #FILE @tmc_file_num tmc.zmud.txt
    #SHOW {}

      #IF ((%filesize( @tmc_file_num) < %1) or (%1 < 1)) {#SHOW {Note: Record Empty}} {
        #SHOW {%ansi( 6)TMC Top 20 Mud List Rankings}
        #SHOW {}
        #READ @tmc_file_num %1
        #LOOP 1,20 {#SHOW {%ansi( 2)%item( @tmc_rankings, %i)}}
        #SHOW {}
        #SHOW {%ansi( 6)%char( 91)%1%char( 93) %item( @tmc_rankings, 21)}
        }
      } {

change "%key( %eval" to "%key (%eval" in your modified code, that fixed it here

Hmmm... can anyone make a script to vote for your favorite MUD from zMUD? I'm looking mainly for Topmudsites, but TMC could be coded too for others. Just a thought.

You can use the #url command to open the voting page, but you can't do more than that unless your browser lets you follow links on displayed pages via COM. There's certainly no way to do it silently from within zMUD.

Ugh. That sucks. I have a PERL script (from a friend of mine) that will do the voting for me, but when the only thing I like to have open is zMUD... Oh well. :)

Well, if you were using CMUD you could install ActivePerl and use Perl from within an alias or trigger.

Yeah. I have CMUD. Just gonna hold off installing it (and using my license) until I get a new computer. My old one decided to blow up on me. I'll have to see if I can figure out how to do that. I think I tried before, and wasn't successful.

You can get ActivePerl for free here. CMUD should automatically recognise that it's installed and add Perl to the drop-down Language menu for any setting. Then you can use CMUD to run your Perl script.

I fixed this problem for Charneus I forgot to post it here. They moved a page. I will do a search and post the changes here.

Ok so what changes need to be made to the vbs to account for the changes at topmudsites?
Code:
objHTTP.Open "GET", "http://www.topmudsites.com/index.shtml", "FALSE"
to
objHTTP.Open "GET", "http://www.topmudsites.com/", "FALSE"
and
intY = instr(strHTML, "Next Update:")
to
intY = instr(strHTML, "</body>")
Of course if topmudsites decides to change things again then the script will once again need to be changed.

It is quite possible, actually. I made such a script myself while working on a completely different goal.
I never released it because the script makes it too possible to easily violate the TMS voting rules, and nobody likes cheaters.

How? I was under the impression that TMS logs your IP to give you a certain number of votes per time period. How does that break the rules?

It could be installed on other people's machines and would run silently and automatically in the background without anyone knowing since it technically doesn't require zMUD at all. I'm not opposed to the script itself, just wary of it being used for ill.
What's your opinion?
