### Error: When bots complain
This message doesn't have a body, but is a direct response to a message that the sending party recieved that it didn't like.
Error messages are in direct response to a message that the sending party recieved that it didn't like. The body is optional, but if specified, should contain the following:
| Byte 1 | Byte 2 | Byte 3 | Byte 4 |
| uint Error Code |
| char* Error Message |
- `uint` Error Code - The code attached to the error message. Error codes are a positive integer. Numbers 1-10000 are reserved for the server. See the error code section at the end of this document.
- `char*` Error Message - Additional human-readable details about the error in question that has occurred. May be empty, especially if the server is complaining to the client, as the client probably won't have anything to do with it unless it's being debugged.
### HandshakeRequest: Beginning a handshake

Note that a status message isn't actually contained in this protocol. This is becaue it is rather awkward to respond to network messages in the middle of a movement, so it will always be something along the lines of 'idle'.
## Error Codes
It's highly likely that an error will occur sooner or later. In the PixelHub protocol, all errors have their own number, where no number is ever thrown in the same place in the code base twice, allowing for errors to be reliably traced back ot their source without a usable stack trace. The following caregories of error have been assigned:
- 0 - A general error. Please try not to use this if at all possible.
- 1-10,000 - Server errors.
- 10,001-20,000 - PixelBot errors.
