Advanced tips and tricks
DWAINE for Dummies is pretty basic and there's a lot of weird shit you can do with the terminals and mainframe beyond what it explains (it also seems to be pretty out of date).
I'd like to make a better tutorial/guide for using it here.
Super user access
Run this somewhere. Requires
/mnt/term to exist.
echo registered=A|nassignment=A|naccess=34 ^ /mnt/term/loginpacket su file_send
Telescience for people who love typing
su access to access the file. The first thing you should (probably) do is copy
teleman out of the
/sys/srv folder into one you make yourself. Then run these wherever you copied it:
echo #!|nteleman coords $arg0 $arg1 $arg2|nteleman scan ^ scan echo #!|nteleman coords $arg0 $arg1 $arg2|nteleman receive ^ recv echo #!|nteleman coords $arg0 $arg1 $arg2|nteleman send ^ send echo #!|nteleman coords $arg0 $arg1 $arg2|nteleman portal ^ portal echo #!|nteleman relay $arg0 $arg1 $arg2 $arg3 $arg4 $arg5 ^ relay
These will combine the "set coordinates" and "do a thing" commands into one, simplifying things a great deal. The copy of
teleman also means you won't need su to access it again.
As an AI or Cyborg, terminal windows will stay with you and update, making it much more effective to use than trying to use the telescience computer itself, since the interface for that doesn't update if you aren't near it (and people can modify the numbers you input). As a human, if you can make a copy of this, you can use it anywhere a wireless computer can reach the mainframe! (Or if you're REALLY into it, PDA messages...)
Right now there's some bug that causes this to result in a stack overflow after enough uses (and some other weird bugs) so you have to occasionally reset the terminal and reconnect.
Artifact research for people who hate typing
This will make a copy of the artlab utilities in the event some dummy breaks the tape drive or it goes offline or whatever, and provide a list of very handy shortcuts to make everything much easier.
mkdir /artlab cp /mnt/artlab/gptio /artlab cd /artlab echo #!|ngptio activate $arg0 ^ a echo #!|ngptio deactivate $arg0 ^ d echo #!|ngptio sense $arg0|ngptio read $arg0 ^ r echo #!|ngptio info $arg0 ^ i echo #!|ngptio poke heater temptarget 200 ^ cold echo #!|ngptio poke heater temptarget 400 ^ hot echo #!|ngptio poke impactpad stand 1 ^ raise echo #!|ngptio poke impactpad stand 0 ^ lower echo #!|ngptio poke xray radstrength $arg0 ^ radstrength
Now just use
a heater to start something up,
d heater to turn it off,
r xray to automatically sense shit and print it out.
Hell, get creative and do this didn't seem to work, have to try again later
a x_ray ^ /mnt/lp-whatever/butt to automatically print out info! wow
Bonus: You don't need to type the underscores in device names.
impactpad works for
xray works for
Oops the mainframe died, now what
When the mainframe is restored (e.g. from a temporary power outage/APC tomfoolery),
gptio will helpfully forget all of the device names -- they'll all show up as
UNKNOWN, so you can't refer to them by name.
To get their names back, use
gptio info address, which will update its name and allow you to use it as a shortcut again.
If someone REALLY fucked it up and removed the memory core (only doable when it's unpowered), you'll have to get a replacement from Hemera or maybe the Lava Moon. Good luck!
The goddamn RD deleted prman
There's a backup ThinkTape in the RD's office you can insert into the databank. It contains a copy of everything in
/mnt/control, and when inserted into the RD's databank will show up at
/mnt/rd. Be sure to let your local RD know that he is very mean.
Scanning paper and other junk
Put piece of paper or other doodad onto a scanner. Go to your local DWAINE terminal and look for
cat /mnt/sc-location/document to take a look at it (or copy it or whatever). Note that half-broken HTML and other garbage comes along for the ride. Welp!
