Smegzor Posted March 1, 2020 Share Posted March 1, 2020 (edited) [Edit] These days I am most active in my Botmanhosting Discord group. I do still post here but not nearly as often as over there. Here is an invite .. https://discord.gg/MUaHTjJ Hi guys, This is a repost kinda. Due to an accident with a zombie stripper and a pole my original official support thread got deleted. I wasn't the only victim and I have to rebuild this thing from scratch. Oh well it'll be fun to re-write everything. Yep.. fun. I am the creator of the Botman Server Manager. This thread is where I will answer your questions and update you with news, and links to guides etc. As time permits I may make some video guides. I've been meaning to get onto that forever xD I started the bot in late 2014 and have been working on it almost daily ever since. It is written in Lua, currently has over 69,000 lines, well over 1,000 commands, almost all the features of other server managers and many more. You will probably use less than 50 commands most of the time and they are all documented on my website and accessible in-game and on IRC. It runs on top of a program called Mudlet which is designed to be a MUD client (Multi-user D&D). Mudlet is a telnet client with Lua scripting support. It requires a desktop so you can't run it on Bluefang etc, but you can run it anywhere with a reliable internet connection and a desktop OS and connect it remotely to your server. Mudlet runs on Windows, Linux and OSX but the bot uses a database and Lua on Windows is not able to connect to any database servers. If someone can help me solve that, get in touch. Currently to run the bot you need a Linux desktop environment. Right now the bot is commanded via in-game chat, from IRC and there is a fancy web panel available. IRC is great because you can monitor and admin from anywhere and all you need is a smartphone or better. The bot supports coloured names and commands can be hidden from public chat. It can also run along side other server managers and can be told to use something other than / for commands or even no symbol. It will automatically detect CBSM and remap commands to ! unless told not to or commands are already using something else. I have no plans to stop supporting the bot, and improving and adding to it. It is a very mature project that runs well and is very responsive. If you have problems with it you only need to contact me and you can post in here. Bot development and support takes a lot of my free time. Aside from providing a hosted bot service, I do not sell my bot, it is 100% free but I do accept donations. If you would like to support my efforts you can do so via a donate button on my website. It helps to keep me motivated through all the boring parts of coding. Here are some links for you.. botman.nz The bot will always support the latest version of the game and I keep archives of older versions for anyone who wants to revisit old game bugs xD The bot's source code is online on bitbucket. I have other links in my download page on the botman website. The latest sources can be obtained here. I generally keep bitbucket up to date though it can get a little dated if I am busy or have a lot of changes in progress. If self-hosting isn't for you there is a bot rental service run by myself and Highope at botmanhosting.com. Our prices are cheap and get even cheaper if you rent more bots. There is also an active Discord server and you get free access to our web panel at mybotpanel.com You can check out a demo of the panel using the login demo@demo and the password demo123 . When logging in make sure to change User Type to Bot Setup Dashboard. If you want to check out the bot without spending a dime you can use the promo code 7daystobotman at checkout when you sign up for your first month free. You are always welcome to message me directly on Discord if you have any questions or need my help with bot stuff. On Discord I am smegzor#9806 There is also a botman mod that adds extra features and can also be used via console commands without the bot. To make sure you have the latest version you should visit my download page rather than using the link above as it will become out of date with new game updates if I forget to edit this post in the future.
