Default Cool Alice Hacks! - 03-14-2011, 07:06 PM

Alice is a fun program to use, but the only thing more fun than using Alice is hacking it. Alice contains many easy-to-change source files, and doing so is fun. This thread was created with one purpose: for those of you on the Alice Community Forums that have managed to change Alice a bit to share what you did, and how you did it. Please post any tips and tricks on this thread. I would like to request that each post regarding a hack that is made on this thread contain the following things.:
1.) A general description of the hack.
2.) What the hack does.
3.) How to perform the hack.

Like all other threads on the Alice Community Forums, this thread will eventually die. When that happens, I want to keep these discussions going, so I have created a social group for all Alice Hackers that wish to discuss how to make a great Alice even greater. The name of the Social Group is Alice Hackers, and can be recognized by the attached logo.

The main goal of this thread is to take our current knowledge of Alice and hacking it, bring it all together, and create a whole new improved Alice under a different name (sort of like Mama). Perhaps one of the biggest contributors to this thread will be Arty-FishL because he appears to be an expert with this kind of stuff.

The Alice Community is, honesty, a kinda slow place, and we don't always respond to threads the day they are posted. I had to wait for a long time before people would reply to my game posts.


Thank you for taking the time to read this signature. This signature loves you.

How long did you have to wait?

I found one of my threads that spent 15 days without anyone replying except me.

Yeah. I kind of know the feeling, my Alice Contest thread took some time before anyone noticed it too.

Anyway: Back to business! Do you have a cool hack you can share with the Alice Community, or know of a few hacks?

Sadly, no. I figured out how to enable Jython scripting and show frames per second, but that's it. Also, I once tried hacking Alice to show a picture on startup, and it broke.

That is a hack in my opinion! Please explain how you do it!

Showing fps and enabling scripting is simple, just find C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\.alice2. In there there should be a file called "AlicePreferences.xml". Rightclick on it and select Edit. Look around in the file until you find "enableScripting". A little after that it should say "false", change that to "true". Do the same for "showFPS".

I should tell you, scripting is useless unless you know Jython, and I know very little Jython.

Zone is also master of hacks. The fps thing can be done from the preferences window I think. Ive got lots of stuff that I could tell, but little time to tell it right now.
