Chat bot - TheGodFather

Time Machine

Time Machine displays predefined messages in chat at intervals. Settings: Admin CP » Machines » Time Machine. A list of messages is called a sequence. Sequences are executed simultaneously, can be combined, postponed, excluded in case the chat is reloaded within a period of time and formatted as regular messages or fancy announcements. Users receive different messages based on group, room, sequence already seen etc. The visual look of the sequence items is controlled using a template that contains HTML, CSS, JavaScript, {TIME} and {TEXT}. {TIME} and {TEXT} are dynamically replaced with the current time of the user and the sequence item itself.


Bling Machine

Bling Machine (BlaB! AX/WS Pro v21.05+) displays in chat fullscreen content with sound - fullscreen animations, announcements, fullscreen or part-screen advertisements. You can build your own blings from scratch or start with the provided templates. Certain chatters can trigger the blings directly from chat (group permission T is required) or it can be combined with Aunt Hedwig or TheGodFather.
