You will find information on Setup and Installation of Windrop, Using TCL Scripts, and of course using BogusTrivia or another of my scripts.
Below are explanations to several common questions a user new to Windrop may ask.

What is Windrop

Windrop is x86 Windows version of the Eggdrop IRC bot. There is very little difference between Eggdrop and Windrop. Windrop has many uses, such as running as a trivia bot, providing automated help, or silly scripts like storing user quotes, channel greetings, or obnoxious insults, Even with today's high speed connections it is not recommended as a protection solution for your IRC Channel. Windrop has all the abilities of Eggdrop, however it is limited by the stability of your computer and internet connection.

Can Windrop Run on My Computer

Windrop was designed to run on the Windows platform. Windrop can be installed on most versions of Windows. Windows XP will require Cygwin 1.3.5. or above. Users of Windrop will need to be familiar with the command prompt. See the FAQ pages for complete information on installation and use of the Windrop bot.

What is Cygwin

Cygwin is a Linux-like environment for Windows. It consists of two parts:
A DLL (cygwin1.dll) which acts as a Linux API emulation layer providing substantial Linux API functionality.
A collection of tools which provide Linux look and feel.
The Cygwin DLL currently works with all recent, commercially released x86 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Windows, with the exception of Windows CE.

Can I use TCL Scripts with Windrop

Windrop can run most TCL scripts available. All of my scripts are written to run on both platforms. If you encounter a problem running any of my scripts on the Windrop platform please submit a bug report asap.

Why Use Windrop

Windrop runs in the background on your x86 machine. It uses little system resources and can provide your IRC Channel an additional bot. Used as a server it is limited only by your machines hard drive space.
Windrop is a good solution for users not willing or able to obtain a shell provider but still wish to use my scripts.
