How do you make it stop though? I set up Trivia without scoring and went into to play on my own. The bot gives the question and after a predetermined amount of time a hint and then finally the answer. Well If I, the only player guess correctly it whispers to me that I got it right, but continues with the last two steps. Time consuming... so I exited chat (by closing the window X) and went into Controls to enable scoring. Refreshed the forum and opened chat. The bot told me the game was in progress and to wait for the next word. It then presented a hint and the answer. lol So this time I used Exit and Close but the same thing happened when I went back in, it was still in the middle of the first game. I even just tried it again now and it's still running the same game. /quit did not work either.
WELL! These bot options are only available in Zeta!
No biggy, just pop into a ***Zeta view of your forum, go to Controls, Chat and the bots and games option is there. After you set the bot you want just refresh the forum and bada bing, bada boom - you have a bot, in your chatroom and you are still Classic (hig 5's self)
I don't know if anyone chatting with Java will see the games.
*** Zeta view of your forum is just adding /zeta after the webtag in your forum address.
Looks like the bot keeps previous players on tap even after they leave?
Yes you could jump back in and add to your score - I just did
We need a command to end the game, I think maybe it currently would end if the room were empty. Oh I can test that lol
If I remove the bot and replace it the game starts over.
I removed the bot, reloaded the forum and entered Chat. No bot. Then closed Chat, reinstalled the bot, reloaded forum and re-entered chat. It started the scoring over.

They're persistent bots - they never stop!
If you want to hold a conversation instead of playing the game, you can always gag the bot. :)

but the scoring is continuing from previous players
It will continue as long as the bot is in the room. If it exits, scoring will start over.
Oh.. also, if you want to talk instead of whispering to the bot, just tab twice before you type.
