    The: Help My Bot Wont Work Thread

    This just a little guide help people out who are having issues with an addon/bot/wow.

    Please feel free to add any little tricks youve learned to make your botting experience run a little smoother.

    Ive seens hundred of post that clutter up bots threads that are basically asking the same 5 questions, or posting the same 5 problems. Its hard to remember seeing somthing, only to come back to 10 more pages of reading, trying to find the pages your looking for.

    Ive been botting for a short time in WoW, and had done it for years in EQ, and have worked out many of my problems with those simple steps. Everyone assumes its the software, when in many cases its the user/users PC.

    So im writing this little guide to make your bots/WoW run a little better.
    _________________________________________________________________


    FIrst things first.

    1: Make sure you dont have an outdated bot/addons. This is a major problem. Patches change things, that render the bots/addons useless in some cases.
    A. A program called WoWMatrix will update all your addons for you.

    2: Make sure you read the instructions for the indivitual bot.
    A. Too many people just download it, and never bother to read notes.

    3: Dig throught the pages of posts regading your bot/addon.
    A. NO clutter! Chances are the problem has happened before. Read about it.

    4: In many cases .Net framework or something else is needed for the bot/addon to work before it will do what you want it to.
    A. This kinda stuff is in the posts.

    _________________________________________________________________
    OS & Files

    Im not gonna go into the specifics on how to make WoW/Your OS run better, this has been done before. Ill keep this part basic.

    1. Defragment your HDD. (I wouldnt use windows defregmenter)
    2. Update your drivers/bios/Windows.
    3. Download CCleaner and run it.
    4. Clean your registry
    5. Air duster the inside of your case.
    A. This is just good practice.
    6. Run AV/Antispyware/addware software.
    A.This is a major factor here.
    _________________________________________________________________
    My Process

    1.Turn on a turned off computer.
    A. Aside from wasting tons of power, this is better for your PC.

    2. Make sure all of your autostart programs are not running.
    A. Like I said I only keep my AV open.

    3. Open up wowmatrix which will scan your addons for newer versions. Once that is done, start warcraft, and log in.

    4. In your chat bar type /ACP to open your addon control panel addon.

    5. Disable everything that isnt going to be used. I only keep lootfilter, ACP, and WIM running when I do most of my botting.
    A. You may find you need other addons to make your bot run how you want it to. This is okay, but remember that addons, are like beer, everyone has their favorites, and theres a good chance that the bot devoloper wasnt using the same addons as you. This could be the root of your problem. It was mine.

    6. Open your video settings, and turn them all the way down.
    A. There will be some addons, that will need you to turn certian settings up, but in general, even on good machines, low settings will help you out. (Sarth3d stands out in my mind)

    7. Im not sure if this actually helps or not, but I always play in windowed mode, maximised to the full screen.
    A. Just makes alt-tabbing alittle less memory intensive. Im alt tabbing alot these days, so this is probably just preference.
    _________________________________________________________________

    Did all this and its still not working?
    Now is the time to start posting logs, and trying to figure out whats going on.


    Happy Botting.

    So let's all just break the rules and start posting guides for EVERYTHING here even if it's the "WoW Guides Gold making guides, leveling guides and skill gaining guides for World of Warcraft."-section.
    No, this is NOT falling under any of those categories thus making the WoW-General section a more suitable section.
    And so what if people don't read that section?
    Rules are rules, simple as that.

    You are right about the rules. I apologise for that. However, could you not have reworded that a little better. I didnt mean for this post to cause issues. I guess I saw the guides for improving gameplay in here and that that it best suited that.

    Kinda reminds me of the MQ2 message boards. Flame first ask questions later.

    I didnt know the general forums existed.. I only read about 3-4 of the sections. I did however write this, and well I havent been botting long like i said, and havent been running hacks long enough discover any great exploits/bots/whatnot, and this is something that I can contribute while still new. That leecher thing bothers me aftyerall.

    Well i hope someone gets some use outta it.
