|I just wanted to drop a line and say many thanks Xide. You have created a wonderful helper here, and I am very sorry to hear that you are going. I hope that you will change your mind about leaving us. If nothing else, I would hope that you continue to contribute to TWX Proxy as time permits, your knowledge and insight are invaluable. Have some people stepped forward and talked to you about continuing to keep the TWX Proxy project alive? Once again, thanks Xide :)|

|I to wish to say thanks and good luck in future endeavors. And just to say (as the HOF voting implies) you have really changed the game.|

|Thanks guys. I really appreciate everything this community has given me. I havnt heard much of a response from individuals wanting to pick up the source, but I guess we can just wait and see what happens.|

|I have found TWX Proxy to be the most usefull TW helper I have ever used. Way back somewhere around 1.08/1.09 I even bought a reg code for it and helped Xide with a FAQ tacken from common question posted on the forum. |
I have downloaded the source, and while delphi is not my favourite language, i can generaly read and follow it... Who knows, maybe i'll convert it something else??? VB, or maybe C++ maybe??? ;-)
I did notice that in the notes (from source zip) that you used Delphi 5... Did you ever try Delphi 6??? or too many problems with version conflicts??? And would i need enterprise edition or would personal edition compile it just fine?
I know that i haven't been around the TW scene myself for about two years, and haven't even touched writing scripts since TWXProxyV2 came out, but with the release of the source, who knows what tricks might be hidden away in the code somewhere for a good programmer/script writer to find??? ;-)
Well, thats my 2 cents worth, and sorry to hear your no longer going to be developing this anymore...

Since Xide may not post any responce, I thought that I would answer your questions.
I'm glad that you can follow the source, even if you do not understand all of it. As for porting it, It would be best to port it to C++. Although some people over on the EIS forums would like to see it ported to C#. (Why bother using a Micro$ucks programming language. When it is totally platform specific.)
As for the D5 to D6/7/8/2005/etc, there is an issue with using D7, or newer. Although I can not say if the problem exists with D6. But, I have fixed this issue and have the source available for anyone to use. Although I do have D7 Enterprise, I do not think there would be a problem with using personal. As long as all of the required librarys are present at build time.
I have setup a TWX Proxy project group on SourceForge. You can get the original source code, with fix for compiler issues in D7+. Or you can get my current TWX Proxy build source. That has a fix for a bug that has been plaqing me since 1.06b. And a few other minor/cosmetic fixes.
You can reach the project's summary page at:
I have also setup a external support forums for the project group. You can reach it at:
One last thing, if you would like to become a developer of the project group, even if it is as a very part-time developer. Just contact me by email or ICQ. If you contact me by ICQ, please state this user name. As I may not recognize you.

|Sorry for the belated post, I haven't been around TW in like...well long time. Bout time 2.0 was released. |
Sorry to see ya go Xide, but I can understand the decision. We all need to move on at some point. Sorry I couldnt continue helping the community and such after 2.0 was released but I had my newborn daughter to worry about. Nz and I could only crank out DotU scripts so fast ;P
Tis shame no mention of us..but whatcha gonna do. Good luck on your future endeavors Xide.
