GO2 Bot - Changelog

Change Log

Build 101.1.2: 12/14/2014

  • Setting "Stop opening boxes at" to 0 will disable the resource check while opening boxes for people having trouble with it.
  • Some people have had issues with resource detection. Added some changes to improve this, as well as additional debug info.
  • Tweaked a few things in the new fleet selection which may help some people having issues.

Build 101.1.1: 11/22/2014

  • Fixed an issue with champions not starting.

Build 101.1.0: 11/22/2014

  • Preliminary ground work on humaroids and truce breaking. Humaroid farming is NOT in this version, however you'll see some interface elements related to it. Humaroids are planned for 102.1.0. If you'd like to use that feature before 102.1.0, you can switch to the beta update stream to test the beta as it's developed.
  • Fixed a login issue with the events tab. You may have to use the "Clear Cookies" button in the troubleshooting tab to apply the fix.
  • Redesigned fleet selection
    • Can now create as many groups of fleets as you want
    • Can assign each fleet group separately to each individual instance, constellations, trial, restricted, etc.
    • Can assign multiple fleet groups to a single instance, so that if some of the fleets aren't available for some reason, it can use the second "backup" fleet group to run it instead.
  • Added an instance rotation queue. Click in the "Instance:" box in Options->Instance to view the new options. The bot will run each in order, and when it reaches the end, will loop back to the start.
  • Added "break truce" options. Need to select a "safe planet" (either by coordinates or by ID. ID has priority if entered.) and assign a fleet group to "Break Truce" in the fleets panel.
  • Now makes sure that the truce applies (checks for the truce icon at the top) before saving the time of the next truce.
  • Now checks for the 13 hour cooldown from a normal truce before attempting to do any truce related activities.
  • Added an option for whether to automatically use normal truce cards separately from Advanced Truce cards.
  • Fixed some issues with league times for some servers. Seems like some servers change for daylight savings time, although most don't. Should better handle DST for most servers. Please let me know if it doesn't seem to detect DST properly.
  • Some people reported issues opening the supply window when starting league. Fixed.
  • Will now detect the "Fatal Error: line 90" that's been popping up, and refreshes to try to clear it.
  • Added a method to prevent the "Slow script" javascript warning while logging into facebook that's been cropping up recently on Windows XP.
  • Changed some warning messages from dialog boxes to notifications in the welcome screen.
  • Added an option to stop running constellations after a specified number of runs. The number will count down, and "Run Constellations" will uncheck when it reaches 0. If "Run Constellations" is checked while the number is already 0, there won't be a countdown, and it will run them forever.
  • Will now always move up to space base, even if it doesn't need to run any instances, since space base uses less CPU than ground base.
  • Updater can now locate the install directory even if you rename GO2Bot.exe and delete everything else.
  • Improved "minimize" functionality. Should do a better job of staying minimized most of the time.
  • Tweaked how the bot pulls it's self to the front again. Hopefully will be more reliable.
  • File verification now ignores language images for other language servers.
  • File verification can now properly detect if you have renamed the exe.
  • When "Priority Preset" is set to "High" or "Highest", the bot will no longer set it's system priority to lowest.
  • Removed Italy server from the Server Location dropdown, since it doesn't seem to exist anymore.
  • Removed MiniClip server from the Server Location dropdown, since it doesn't seem to exist anymore.

Build 100.1.0: 10/7/2014

  • Added an option to stop opening boxes when your resources reach a customizable amount (default 895 million).
  • Added a selector for what resource types to use when harvesting resource satellites. Options are:
    • Harvest he3 - This was previously the only option. Puts 24 hour he3 rocks.
    • Harvest metal - This will place 24 hour metal rocks in your resource satellites.
    • Automatically Balance - This option will check whether you have more he3 or metal, and put either he3 or metal, depending what you have less of.
  • Added file verification to make sure your install is valid. Checks on bot startup and during updates.
  • Will now use a normal truce if there's no Adv. Truce card in your inventory if you have automatic truce enabled.
  • Bots will now wait for each other when entering he3 for trials/constellations and when placing resource satellites. No more fighting for mouse control.
  • Added event wheel to the events tab.
  • Fixed links in event tab, to prevent them from opening new windows.
  • Tweaked how the bot pulls it's self to the front when it needs to enter new stones into your resource satellites, or enter custom he3. Hopefully will be more reliable.
  • Now detects if it's unable to retrieve instance rewards from mail, and restarts the bot to fix.
  • Now detects if it opens a sale mail by accident, and will not retrieve the sale payment.
  • Tweaked dialog descriptions for changing your settings password, to make it a bit more obvious what to enter.
  • French language has been updated with new community contributed entries, thanks to Alec.
  • Improved the translation interface, allowing easier community involvement in translations. Contact the admin on the forums if you'd like to help translate.
  • "Open Boxes" button now remembers if the bot was stopped when you pushed it, and stops again after it's done.
  • Removed Japan server, since it was merged with the Philippines server and no longer exists.
  • Tweaked ArmorGames login for Windows XP.
  • Added a delay during ArmorGames login to hopefully help some people with authentication issues.
  • Some people on Windows XP had issues with the ArmorGames login. This should be improved or fixed.
  • Fixed a rare corner case issue where the bot would incorrectly detect the game as loaded, even if it hadn't.

Build 99.1.2: 8/3/2014

  • There was still one more place I had missed which could clear out the registration field in some rare cases. This has been fixed, so the bot should never lose the registration code again.
  • Tweaked ArmorGames refresh to better detect when it couldn't load in to let it get a new URL.
  • ArmorGames now displays the username in the titlebar if you have it entered to make it easier to tell the accounts apart.
  • Renamed the old ArmorGames "Find URL" button to "Don't use", to indicate that it should no longer be needed. This button will be removed in a future version once I've verified that the new login method is working reliably for everyone.

Build 99.1.1: 7/29/2014

  • ArmorGames changed their page again. Fixed.
  • Added user/pass fields for ArmorGames for auto-login, since the URL method was becoming unreliable.

Build 99.1.0: 7/20/2014

  • ArmorGames find URL should work again following their website update.
  • Bot will no longer "forget" your registration code if it can't be validated for some reason (ie. database error)

Build 98.1.1: 5/18/2014

  • Fixed an issue where the warehouse would never be harvested while I.G.L. was selected to run.
  • Updates now have a file verification, ensuring that the zip file downloaded successfully.

Build 98.1.0: 5/17/2014

  • Added Aries constellations.
  • Added welcome tab, which will contain information on subscription status, bot notifications/alerts, and official communications.
  • Added an option to control whether or not to harvest from the resource warehouse.
  • Added an option to stop running trials after a specified trial number.
  • Updated trial partial fills to reflect the change from 50 to 10 trials.
  • Champions should now enter finals even if you have "use MP" off (since it only requires a champion pass, not MP).
  • Fixed an issue which could have caused some dialog messages to display in English, regardless of the language selected.

Build 97.1.0: 3/9/2014

  • Added preliminary IGL support for German, Italian, and French language servers.
  • IGL now detects the "not enough MP" message properly.
  • Fixed an issue with restricted runs since the number of free runs per day was increased.
  • League issues some people have reported may have been improved.
  • Updated required flash version, since people reported that they needed to update flash in order for the bot to load with a recent game update.

Build 96.1.0: 2/6/2014

  • Added an option to wait for a specified number of seconds after each instance ends for people who have lag issues.
  • Improved debug logging for better troubleshooting.
  • Improved performance a bit.

Build 95.1.3: 12/11/2013

  • Bug fix introduced a new bug with yet more people for league. Final fix.

Build 95.1.2: 12/6/2013

  • Image set rewrite flaw prevented league from working for some people. This should fix.

Build 95.1.1: 12/1/2013

  • Rewrote how the bot determines which image sets to load to more reliably load the right images.
  • Windows 8.1 now supports league, however it may not work 100% on some servers. Please post on forum if you have issues.

Build 95.1.0: 11/28/2013

  • Added Scorpio constellation.
  • English language servers will now retrieve constellation rewards from mail.
  • Windows 8.1 now partially supported. League is not yet available in Windows 8.1, but most other features should work. Post bugs on the forum.
  • Fixed a bug where trying to do friend speedups where they're not supported would cause the bot to get stuck.
  • May have fixed an issue with IGL getting stuck on the "Purchase more runs with MP" dialog. Need feedback.

Build 94.1.0: 9/1/2013

  • My server host changed my server IP address on me and forwarded traffic from the old site. Part of the security in the code authentication makes sure that it's not being redirected, which messed up registration code checks. Sorry about this, this patch will correct for the new host configuration.
  • Japan server changed constellation types. Should now run constellations there properly again.
  • Europe server changed constellation types. Should now run constellations there properly again.

Build 93.1.0: 8/7/2013

  • Fixed an issue with League on the Russian server in Windows XP.
  • Now periodically checks your registration code while the nag screen is up, and if it's valid, will close the nag screen. This is to combat a report of occasional nag screens on unstable internet connections with a valid key.
  • No longer needs to be able to actually harvest the warehouse to continue. Being able to see the warehouse is enough.
  • Added 5 new servers: Arabic, Thailand, Taiwan, ArmorGames, Miniclip
  • No longer shows options which aren't supported on the current server.
  • Added I.G.L. as a subscriber perk! Currently only works on English language servers.
  • Added 2 new languages - Greek and Romanian.
  • Updated max champion fleets to the new amount of 8.
  • Fixed changelog.
  • Fixed some issues on the Japan server related to the image set detection change.
  • Fixed an issue where the bot was opening itself multiple times while trying to harvest unsuccessfully in some cases.

Build 92.1.0: 7/11/2013

  • Nag time count down changed from 20 seconds to 3 seconds, but added a captcha image. You can thank the people trying to bypass the nag window.
  • Fixed instance/league runs on Turkey server, following a game update which changed some of the text.
  • Added 3 new interface languages and updated french, japanese and turkish with user contributed corrections. Thanks go out to MedusaTR, kn2110, and david02 for these language corrections!
  • Fixed league for Windows XP on English language servers.
  • Improved resource satellite harvesting slightly. More improvements to come.
  • Fixed reset buttons for league and trial statistics
  • Some internal cleanup, ensuring all objects are disposed of properly. May help some rare crash/stopping issues.
  • Possible fix for the bot stopping on it's own for some people.
  • Added debug messages everywhere that the bot stops. If it stops for you on it's own, please post your debug.log file on the forums.
  • Changed the detection for what image set to use to possibly help some people having issues (mostly on Windows XP).

  • Website now has a google translate widget. Bot website/changelog tab will attempt to use this to translate to the interface language you have selected.
  • Complete revamp of the image system, separating all images by operating system. Should improve speed significantly.
  • Added a "Troubleshooting" tab, which includes one click solutions to many common issues.
  • Added Japan server.
  • Will now only use items/boxes in normal inventory (ignores items in corps warehouse).
  • Now waits longer to get items before deleting mail.
  • Fixed a crash bug that occasionally occured when using "Send mail while under attack".
  • Now detects if your Flash Player install for IE is outdated, and prompts to update.
  • Fixed a bug with detecting he3 for statistics.
  • Removed custom server settings, since there was no need to change these for normal users. Less confusion now. If you actually used the custom server settings, please post why and how, so I can look into adding more user friendly options to accomodate.
  • Lots (and I mean lots) of tweaks/bug fixes. I forget most of them, quite truthfully.

Build 90.1.0: 5/8/2013

  • Fixed a bug causing the bot to still try to use champion fleets for restricted/league during champion times.
  • Some people reported that the flash object would sometimes expand beyond the edge of the window when resizable mode is off. Fixed.
  • Tweaked automatic reset sequence to hopefully make it more reliable, as a couple people reported that it wasn't working sometimes.

Build 89.1.0: 4/10/2013

  • Now accepting Bitcoins as a payment type, through Mt. Gox!
  • Should no longer automatically refresh while opening boxes/spinning unless something goes wrong.
  • Provided a fallback for detecting the flash window.
  • Added a check to make sure the automation thread is running if it's supposed to be.
  • Fixed a couple of things on the Russian server.
  • During champion times, it now checks to see if fleets are shared between champions and other instance types. Won't run other types if you're sharing fleets between them.
    Eg. If you have the same fleet selected to go into both Champion and League, then it won't try to run league during Champion periods (since the fleet may be unavailable).
  • Preliminary work done on Champion feature. Not yet tested.
  • Added 3 new servers!
    • Indonesia
    • Portugal
    • Vietnam
  • Fixed an issue where it wasn't able to move to normal instances after doing any other areas in some servers.
  • Window now can expand beyond the screen resolution, which should allow the bot to work on small resolutions, both normal and resizable mode!
  • Fixed a size bug on the Kongregate servers

Build 88.1.1: 4/3/2013

  • Added a beta stream selection to updates, for beta testing prior to an official release.
  • Added auto-update options.
  • Fixed auto-truce.
  • Now ensures that the window is visible on one of the active screens when the bot starts.
  • Added "fake" minimize (just moves the window off screen when minimized. Buggy still sometimes.)
  • Added an option to resize the window, including maximizing and full screen which allows typing!
    • After resizing, refresh to fix the game menu position.
    • Friend speedup function isn't possible while the resize feature is enabled.
    • Won't work for people with small screens, since GO2 seems to have a minimum size for the menu positions.
    • Subscriber perk
  • Added hotkeys to control some features:
    • Start/stop: Ctrl+Space or Esc
    • Refresh: Ctrl+R
    • Fullscreen: Ctrl+Enter or Alt+Enter
    • Exit Fullscreen: Esc or Ctrl+Enter or Alt+Enter
    • These buttons have tooltips saying what their hotkeys are, in case you forget.
    • I welcome suggestions for other hotkeys on the forums

Build 87: 3/17/2013

  • English images should only be loaded in English language servers now. This should speed up the bot on non-English language servers.

Build 84: 2/18/2013

  • Fixed res sats for conflicting territory.
  • Fixed an issue with fleet scan for some people running Vista.

Build 83: 1/11/2013

  • Fixed an issue with lucky wheel on the Kongregate server.
  • Now displays a warning if the desktop DPI is different than required.
  • A recent IGG patch broke res sat rocks - this has been fixed.

Build 82: 12/18/2012

  • Further reduced CPU usage during downtime.
  • Shouldn't restart as often when opening boxes/doing speedups if you've been fast farming instances.
  • When "Auto-Open boxes" is checked, if opening lots of boxes is interrupted by an instance finishing, it should be better about starting a new instance before checking mail/opening boxes again.
  • Using the "Open Boxes" button shouldn't be interrupted as easily by lag or instance ending anymore.
  • New "Stocking" version of EZRewards now supported.

Build 81a: 12/16/2012

  • Fixed server timezone setting for a few servers.
  • Restored some of the extra custom server settings. If the defaults don't work for you, please report on the forum so I can correct them for other people.
  • Removed India server, since it no longer exists.

Build 81: 12/16/2012

  • Emergency patch to fix a constant refresh bug with Europe - English server.

  • Fixed the graphical "jittering" glitch on Windows 8
  • Added support for the Kongregate server (in the server dropdown)
  • Removed some options which were probably never used, and just confused people.
  • Should now continue properly after maintenances are over. Previously you had to restart the bot after a maintenance.
  • The Refresh button now immediately refreshes again, even if the bot is already part way through a refresh. Useful if it gets stuck and you don't want to wait for it's 3 minute auto-refresh.
  • "Open Boxes" button now changes to a "Stop Opening" button when clicked, allowing you to stop before using all boxes.
  • Added an option to either Auto-Accept or Auto-Reject friend requests. Keeps friend request window from interfering with instance runs. Set to Auto-Reject by default.

Build 76: 11/2/2012

  • Fixed a bug with priorities which caused some of the settings to be ignored for some people.
  • Added a couple of extra priority presets.
  • Fixed a bug which was causing the nag window to pop up every hour if not dismissed.
  • Several info messages related to registration codes will now only show once per bot session, rather than each time the code is checked.

Build 75: 10/30/2012

  • Spain server is completed and should be fully functional.
  • Tweaked image search for opening the commander windows.
  • Added several options to control how the bot releases CPU control (affects bot run speed, and performance of other applications)
  • Added an option to change how long the bot "pauses" after a refresh and after moving up to the space base. This can help some cases where moving too fast will cause things not to load in.

Build 74a: 10/19/2012

  • Fixed a small issue where it wouldn't update the new "Constellation Server Type" menu after changing servers. Just a display bug - closing/opening the bot would refresh.
  • Defaults the "Constellation Server Type" to what it should be based on the server you have selected.

Build 74: 10/19/2012

  • Added Libra Constellation!
  • Fixed constellations.
  • If it's trying to truce every minute, make sure the "Truce Expires In" option is set to the remaining time on your truce. Once set, it should maintain this value automatically when it uses truce cards. If you use a card manually, you'll need to change this timer as well.
  • Now checks monitor color depth on startup, and displays a warning if not in 32 bit.
  • Commander recruit should be better at dismissing commons when you have max commanders.
  • Now remembers recruit time between program close/open.
  • If it couldn't recruit a commander, it will try again in 5 minutes.
  • Added an option to turn on/off commander recruiting.
  • Fixed some issues with Auto-Truce, and added a timer, to allow it to work when not running instances
  • If it isn't able to truce for some reason when the timer is up, it will try again once per minute until able to.
  • Auto-Truce is now a donator perk.
  • Further image search optimizations when only searching for a single image (majority of searches).
  • Fixed an issue which would cause the fleet selection to sometimes go to pages it didn't need to go to.
  • Made image search more strict for opening mail to prevent it from accidentally opening the wrong messages.
  • Constellation/Trial he3 entry now enters in order from top to bottom.
  • Preliminary support for Spain server (Windows 7 only, no League). Not all features will function correctly. Will be finished for next update.

Build 73: 10/11/2012

  • Added an option to auto-use Adv. Truce cards.
  • Improved Constellation selection reliability.
  • Subscription system now active.
  • Tweaked sleep time for image search during downtime.
  • Now saves cookies for the go2bot.com website between sessions as well, so it can save your forum login if you use the website tab.
  • Cookies are now saved in the database instead of in separate files.
  • Improved cookie saving to be more reliable between sessions.
  • May have gotten Login Approvals working...

Build 71: 9/25/2012

  • Fixed a corrupted image in the Germany directory, which was causing an error on startup.
  • Added extra error handling to prevent future errors due to corrupted images.
  • Now checks for updates before loading the main window, so that it can still update even if something breaks further on.

Build 68-70: 9/24/2012

  • Fixed an issue where the config wouldn't save/load properly if you're using a colon in one of the option fields.
  • Added a server time zone selector, so that league will run right on servers in different timezones.
  • Improved image editor. Now allows you to select what image you're cropping, and saves it with the right name in the right directory based on what Image Set you're using.
  • Added images for the following servers:
    • Germany (credit goes to Panther81)
    • France
    • Italy
    • Russia
  • Added the following servers to the dropdown list (including default timezone for league and address):
    • Europe
    • France
    • Turkey
    • Italy
    • India
    • Germany
    • Philippines
    • Russia
  • Added Sagitarius constellation

  • Increased variance and lengthened timing on mail opening.
  • Added a couple more servers to the server dropdown.
  • Added a "Custom" option to server dropdown, and a URL field for custom servers. This URL needs to go to the HD version in order to work.
  • Changed label on custom server to be more relevant
  • Removed ads, since they were just causing problems, and not actually generating income.
  • Only loads website/events tab when you switch over to the tab (rather than at bot startup). May save a bit of bandwidth/processing time for some people.
  • Fixed a hang issue when out of passports/const passes while trying to run restricted/const.
  • No longer runs instances when out of he3.
  • Now resumes instance if one is running when it tries to start league.

  • New updater should make sure things update right!
  • Added a load screen to give people something to look at on slower computers (virtual machines).
  • Now has most required DLLs embedded.
  • Sped up Res Sat click speed when putting new rocks in.
  • Tweaked commander recruiting slightly. Previously would occasionally try to recruit too early and miss the timing window.
  • Added an option to change how many instances to run before refreshing. Defaults to 15.
  • Added an option to specify a time delay before refreshing if a disconnect is detected. (Oh, and now detects disconnects and refreshes)
  • Slightly increased the time it waits for the fleet selection window to come up before refreshing. Should help in higher lag situations for some people.
  • Now uses Corsair Gold while opening boxes.
  • Added some extra images for some of the bottom menus. Hopefully will help a couple people having problems.

Build 57: 7/23/2012

  • Emergency fix for a bug that slipped in related to nag window.

Build 56: 7/23/2012

  • Added Philippine server. No language images have been cropped yet. Will not work until someone crops them.
  • Tweaked timings slightly to hopefully help a server desync issue following a refresh.
  • Tweaked nag dialog.

Build 55: 7/17/2012

  • Added Leo constellations
  • Putting "0" for the "He3 to use in Constellations" field will just fully fill fleets now, to avoid taking over mouse control.

Build 54: 7/15/2012

  • Changed login method back to the old way (faster/more reliable) now that IGG has fixed the issues.
  • Will now refresh every 10th instance run if you are able to run 10 within the normal 2 hour refresh time. This should keep lag down for speed runners.
  • Tweaked end of instance detection slightly, so it should re-enter a new instance instead of checking mail more often.

Build 53: 7/11/2012

  • Improved maintenance detection.
  • Improved ability to enter space station to harvest sats - previously sometimes had trouble clicking the button in the menu.
  • Improved fleet supply relilability.
  • Should no longer attempt to dismiss common commanders multiple times in a row when at max comms (this was actually in for a couple builds, but forgot to put it in changelog).

Build 52: 7/10/2012

  • Changed login method temporarily to avoid IGG/facebook issues.

Build 51: 7/6/2012

  • Added an option to turn off the auto-ResSat harvests, and an option to disable using he3 boosts before harvesting.
  • Added an option to go to the German version of the game. No images have been cropped for this version however, so until someone crops the appropriate images and submits them to me, this will be fairly useless =P

Build 50: 6/30/2012

  • New website (and auto-update location)! Update your bookmarks: http://www.go2bot.com
  • Added Pisces constellation instances.

Build 49: 6/15/2012

  • Fixed an issue where the bot would get hung up when trying to "use multiple" items when there is only 1 in the stack.
  • May have improved the reliability of opening the menu to access the Wheel when using the "Spin" option and after harvesting.

Build 48: 5/28/2012

  • Added Italy and India to the server lists. No images have been added for these servers, so the bot probably won't work without significant image cropping. If anyone crops images for these servers, please post the image pack on the forum and I'll add it to the next release :)
  • Now properly switches to "Change Log" tab after an update.

Build 47: 5/25/2012

  • Fixed layout issues and control bar disappearing when window is resized.
  • Fleet area has scrollbars now if there are lots of fleets.

Build 46: 5/19/2012

  • Donation system moving to a subscription base soon! Existing donators will be given generous extra time based on how much they donated, so donate soon to take advantage!
  • Can now enter multiple instances into options, and have the bot run each in order. To do this, separate the instance numbers by commas or spaces. Example: 1,2,3,4,5 to make it run instances 1 through 5.
  • Opening bag should be a bit more reliable following latest IGG patch.

Build 45: 5/8/2012

  • Wheel spins again now. Humaroid patch broke it.
  • Tweaked some league/restricted stuff to hopefully make it more reliable for some people.
  • Bug fixes related to saving cookies between sessions.

Build 44: 4/3/2012

  • Fixed an issue which would prevent constellation instances from re-checking after running out of passes. Previously, the whole bot would need to be closed and restarted if you obtained new passes. Now checks again after each refresh.

Build 43: 4/3/2012

  • Should now properly use badges/honor on XP.
  • Changelog should once again show up after an update, rather than before.
  • Now properly detects when you run out of constellation passes.

Build 42: 3/29/2012

  • Constellation instances are here!
  • Now checks for updates every reload.
  • Donation "nag" screen should no longer get "lost" underneith the main window.

  • Improved the error messages which appear when duplicate fleet names are found while sending ships into instances.

Build 40: 3/24/2012

  • Build 39 apparently broke bot for vista. This should fix.

Build 39: 3/24/2012

  • Added a fleet selector! Now you can use any names you want for your fleets. How to use:
    1. Name your fleets anything, as long as they each have a different name. Cannot use the same name multiple times.
    2. Click the "Scan Fleets" button at the top, or in the "Fleets" tab.
    3. On "Fleets" tab, select a fleet in the "All Fleets" list on the left, and click "Add to Instance" (or just double click the fleet).
    4. Click on "Restricted" tab, and repeat the last step to add restricted fleets. Repeat for League, Trials and Constellations.
    5. Use the "Move Up" and "Move Down" buttons (or use the arrow keys) to select the click order for the fleets.
  • Improved the overall speed of the image search functions. Should be less impact on CPU performance.
  • Disable buttons during refresh to prevent mistakes.
  • Fixed an issue that would rarely cause the bot to crash.
  • Changed the non-donator "nag" screen to ensure it doesn't appear more than once every 6 hours.'
  • Constellations coming next version... watch for them!

Build 38: 3/19/2012

  • Todays maintenance broke instances on Win7. Emergency bot patch to fix.

Build 37: 3/19/2012

  • Detects when out of Vouchers while using the auto-spin function.

Build 33: 3/7/2012

  • Added a "Spin" function, to automatically use vouchers or MP to spin the wheel.
  • Added a check for maintenance, with a 5 minute refresh once detected.

Build 32: 3/5/2012

  • Fixed a bug with refreshes going to FB page.

Build 31: 3/4/2012

  • Fixed i18 and i22 instance runs.
  • Added "Image Sets", which allow you to create a "custom" set of images to use for image recognition (other languages or fonts), without interfering with the base image set. Do not modify/add/remove images from the "base" folder - these will be overwritten by updates. Create a new folder for your custom images.
  • Added an option to play on the Turkish version, however no images have been cropped yet, so until there are images for it, it will not function.

Build 30: 3/2/2012

  • Now auto-updates!
  • First load now default to options tab until a facebook email/password are entered.
  • Changing the login info now prompts to restart the bot.

  • Taskbar icon now updates to show a play/stop image to quickly see if the bot is running or not.
  • Fixed a bug which would cause errors to appear if you were on the stats pages when an instance finished.

Build 27: 2/28/2012

  • Removed reference to ADOX assembly, to prevent errors some people were having related to it.
  • Changed control bar along the top to auto-hide/appear on mouseover. This will help save space for smaller screen resolutions.
  • Will now continue to run the bot while on the options/statistics pages. Previously, it was unable to do anything while viewing these tabs.

Build 26: 2/23/2012

  • Fixed a bug that prevented the bot from loading in Windows XP. Not sure how long this has been here - XP used to work fine. So much for .net framework being cross platform =P
  • Cropped images for the default font set in a clean install of Windows XP.
  • Changing the Facebook login info in options will now delete cookies properly, so that it logs in with the new account.

Build 25: 2/20/2012

  • DELETE your old images folder and use the one in this zip instead (or even better - just copy your old settings.dat into the new folder). I cut down on the number of images to improve speed.
  • LOTS of changes this version, although most are behind the scenes.
  • Tons of random bug fixes... I don't remember them all, and can't be bothered to write them all in. Will put in some of the larger ones.
  • Bugfix: No longer relies on the window border being standard size. Custom windows themes should be fine now.

  • Hitting "Stop Speedups" while speedups are running now actually stops them.

Build 24: 2/4/2012

  • This version will reset stats on first load, due to changes in trial stats.
  • Changed the selector for partial filling in trials to a listbox instead of a dropdown, to select specific trials.
  • Fixed a bug with lucky wheel that would occasionally cause it to get stuck.
  • Fixed a bug related to redrawing the game view after switching tabs.

Build 23: 1/21/2012
