All games created by Blizzard have an own forum inside.

Bot setup

New postby Darktiger138 on Fri Jun 01, 2012 6:16 am

You are using GHost++? That's for advanced users who prefer the command line interface. GHostOne is the GUI version. It is better for you.

Yes, I did use GHost++ but only AFTER figuring out everything with GHostOne and wanting more.

Edit: But what do I know... Last time I ran a hostbot was in 2011.

3ice, I really need your help with this god dam mofo, no-one else knows what is wrong with it, I've port forwarded a million times now, installed loop back adapters, read hundreds of tutorials, spent hours searching for answers, tried different bots, taken down my firewall, allowed the bot through firewall, nothing, works.

I'm here to help.

This thread however, is a month old. Any changes since then?

If you googled the issue and clicked the first link, I'm certain you already changed custom_war3version to the correct numbers. (Just making sure you did.)

No, you haven't.

So. Tell us the up-to-date details of your problem.

Confirm that the error message is still the same, post your config and logs, removing passwords and cd keys, you know, the usual steps when asking for support.

And we'll fix it in no time.

It's the exact same problem that I was having before, bot run, but when I pub a game it's un-joinable with the message "The game you attempted to join could not be found".

### whether to allow GProxy++ reliable reconnects or not
### you should ensure that bot_synclimit is set to a reasonable value if you choose to allow GProxy++ reliable reconnects

### if you set this to 10 or more GHost++ will only wait for up to 10 minutes

I'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong with the bot though, I think there's a problem with my ports, although I followed 20 different tutorials that told me to do the exact same thing, I've also had 3 other people take me through it step by step, but it's always been the exact same method, cmd, ipconfig, enter ip into browser, enter admin and password, go to port forwarding, open ports 6112-6119.

I don't think this will fix the problem, but it's worth a try: Your config appears to be outdated. When updating my bot I always overwrite my config with the latest version and then change the settings to suit my needs. I know it's easier to leave the config as it is, but it helps to have the most up-to-date information in the comments:
Code: Select all
###  patch 1.23:  war3version 23, buildnumber 6058
###  patch 1.24:  war3version 24, buildnumber 6059
###  patch 1.24b: war3version 24, buildnumber 6059
###  patch 1.25:  war3version 25, buildnumber 6059
###  patch 1.26:  war3version 26, buildnumber 6059


Make sure you have the latest version of Warcraft at C:\Program Files (x86)\Warcraft III\

Other than that, I have no idea. My bot works fine and we have the exact same configuration.

I do have the most updated version of Warcraft 3 and what do I do with this

### patch 1.23: war3version 23, buildnumber 6058
### patch 1.24: war3version 24, buildnumber 6059
### patch 1.24b: war3version 24, buildnumber 6059
### patch 1.25: war3version 25, buildnumber 6059
### patch 1.26: war3version 26, buildnumber 6059

Is there a possibility that I cannot host at all?
