PostSubject: GHost++ Hosting bot   Wed Feb 04, 2009 6:03 am

Have you ever joined one of those games with the cool hosting bot that talks to you but isn't actually a player in the game, and tells you things like how fast you loaded the map? Well here it is: GHost++ hosting bot

I use a modified version of GHost++ with "new features, new commands, remote control" and a GUI. It's called GHost One and it's located here.

You don't need 2 cd-keys to use the bot and play if you set it up properly... sort-of.

You can't log onto Battle.net while your bot is hosting, but you can join it's games by going to the Local Area Network screen. However, you can log onto other realms at the same time that your bot is hosting, so if you want to play on USWest you can leave the bot hosting on USEast, and vice-versa.

I think it's a nifty little tool so I thought I'd let you guys know about it. This could probably be used to auto-host MM&M when you aren't (or are) playing, spreading it quickly. The bot is also able to auto-host multiple games at once (ie: after one starts it hosts another).


I've also seen another bot which is apparently used for TDA games. It seems to have many names including orochi-, orochibot, TDAbot, and wuffle bot. Anyways I tried searching all over google but I couldn't find any info about it, even though I've seen a few hosts using it for random non-dota maps. One of the features of this bot is that if you don't have the map when you join a game, you end up joining an empty lobby with no other players, and then when you finish downloading you move to the actual game where the people are, unless the game is full in which case it adds you to a queue until someone else leaves or the game starts. It has some other cool looking features but like I said I couldn't find it anywhere. If anybody knows about it please let me know. GHost might be able to do this stuff too though, I'll see tomorrow.


Anyways... good night! Sleep

SinisteRing: I've set up a poll in this thread. Please read the fourth post to get information on what it's about.

I just got IP banned today for trying to use another CD-Key I found online for a Stealbot. XD The good thing is that I'm going on vacations for 6 days in like 15 hours so it's not like I would of been online anyways.

But anyways, back on the subject, I'm pretty sure SinisteRing is trying to set up a Ghost++ hosting bot to host Metal & Magic, but without possitive results till now.

Ghost++ is pro. I've played games with it some. It may very well change how Bnet is played. People can set it up so you can join any game you want at nearly any time without waiting on some idiot host who will be obnoxious and power-mong over you.


So yeah, me-likey Ghost++.

I can set it to host either MM&M and Metal & Magic currently. I'm not sure about the overall quality of my bot (ping, delay, etc.), however I know that it hosts games and works for that purpose. I'll be willing to leave it in the channel for people to use and I'll just set up some admins to control when games are hosted and such.

I'll add a poll to this thread about that.

That sounds awesome if you don't mind. How about having it alternate which map it hosts? Or, you could let whoever has admin power over it give a command to switch what it's hosting from a small library of choices.

By the way I found what seems to be a modified version of GHost++ with "new features, new commands, remote control" and a GUI. It's called GHost One and it's located here.

I still haven't actually had a chance to try either of these bots yet, just letting you guys know about them.

The bot isn't working anymore, unfortunately. People are unable to join the games.

I got my bot working (using Ghost One) and everything seems to work fine except that the config it generates for MM&M doesn't work. It instantly ends the game as soon as it starts. I tried it with other maps and it worked fine, so apparently there's something wrong with the auto-generated cfg for MM&M. Face Palm

It does work for Metal and Magic however, and everything else I've tried so far.

I really wish you could get it working for MM&M, getting someone to host it is like pulling teeth.

That's because it's such a long game primarily. But anyway, I used it for Metal & Magic and it was great. I appreciate the bot. Alot of other people are playing Metal&Magic because of the bot too.

Apparently I hosted over 70 games of Metal and Magic last night Shocked (I thought I only set it to run 5 lol), with 8 people per game. At the moment I've got 5 games running and one in the lobby. Looks like lots of people are loading too (about 3-5 per game) so I guess they like it enough to re-join.

More info about the bot: You can't log onto battle.net while your bot is hosting, but you can join it's games by going to the Local Area Network screen. However, you can log onto other realms at the same time that your bot is hosting, so if you want to play on USWest you can leave the bot hosting on USEast, and vice-versa.

OK got MM&M working now, apparently it only bugs when I host it alone, but if other people join it works fine. Strange bug but I should be able to auto-host MM&M now.
