Battle Efforts Insane-Bot Script



(Document Contents)

Insane-Bot is a very customizable version of a buff bot for Asheron's Call. The bot script is loaded and run with the use of Decal within the game. Below is some highly customized starter scripts to help you get your bot running with some great routines.

Banes While You Wear the Armor

If you have trouble using the NEW bane commands to bane your armor while you wear them, and you can run Decal, then try the Insane-Bot Client. It provides for simpler commands, automatically detects the items you are wearing, and requests the banes for those items that can be buffed.

Da All Mighty Bot Scripts

There are now two versions of the script available. The scripts also include an ALL NEW customized version of 'insane-report.pl' (written for Insane-Bot 1.3c, or 1.3.0.5) which should produce bot usage reports that are a bit easier to read. Have a look at my bot report covering 9 months (300k file) of bot usage.

Generic BotCofig (2004-03-17)

The 'Generic' script simpler version of the full bot script with definitions for a single bot character. None of the character settings have been predefined in this script and it will not work until you provide the necessary values. Notes are included in the script for making necessary changes and help you to set up and use it for a single bot.

DO NOT JUST PLUG YOUR BOT NAME IN THIS XML ! ! !

This is the Generic BotConfig.xml used by the ASH Clan of
Harvestgain, 'Ancestral Soldiers of Honor' allegiance buff bots.
  <http://oregonstate.edu/AC/bot-status.php>
There are many features used here that are not contained in the default
BotConfig.xml, SimpleConfig.xml, or ComplexBot.xml

The two sections you MUST edit for this script to work with your bot are
<Characters> and <Replacements>. Replace any occurrence of #...# with
details about your bot! Use a text find for any # symbols and replace the
pound symbol pairs and all text between them with your information.
(Example: You should change #CharacterFullName# to the name of the
character that will run the bot program.)

If you wish to modify some of these features, it is best if you go slowly.
Add some, test, add more, test, then test some more. If you have
questions, you may read the documentation on <http://ac.insanity-inc.org/>
or visit the forums at <http://forums.insanity-inc.org/>

Multiple BotConfig (2004-03-17)

The 'Multiple' script is same script as the 'Generic' but has multiple, pre-defined, bots with the ASH allegiance values already configured.

DO NOT JUST PLUG YOUR BOT NAME IN THIS XML ! ! !

This is the 'CUSTOM' Multiple BotConfig.xml used by the ASH Clan of
Harvestgain, 'Ancestral Soldiers of Honor' allegiance buff bots.
  <http://oregonstate.edu/AC/bot-status.php>
There are many features used here that are not contained in the default
BotConfig.xml, SimpleConfig.xml, or ComplexBot.xml

If you are setting up a script to work for a single bot, we suggest that
you try the Generic BotConfig.xml, also found at the above site. It is a
simplified version of this script with all the same functionality.

If you wish to use some of these features, it is best if you go slowly.
Add some, test, add more, test, then test some more. If you have
questions, you may read the documentation on <http://ac.insanity-inc.org/>
or visit the forums at <http://forums.insanity-inc.org/>

Includes Complete Definitions for:
    Adi, Adieu, Aron Motson, Gooliath, Runesmith, Soulwalker
Bot ID should be first name or nickname only, no punctuations or spaces.

Modification Notes
  • (2004-09-20)
    updated the patchnotes with information through September 2004.
  • (2004-08-10)
    updated the patchnotes with information through July 2004.
  • (2004-02-26)
    added expanded fellowship functionality per Barnon's request. The bot will now provide level 7 buffs to anyone fellowed with the bot, but banes will not be available to non-allegiance players. Regular level 6 buffs without banes for low-level allegiance members, and level 7 buffs with banes for hight-level allegaince members still work as before.
  • (2004-02-23)
    two versions of the script are now available: Generic BotConfig - a simpler, single bot, configuration; and Multiple BotConfig - the complete, multiple bot, configuration. Patchnote information is also up to date in this version.
  • (2004-02-17)
    Doh! I cannot believe the bot has never supported allegiance buffs for melee Staff users! It has been added. Also added the ability to customize where you will cast your portals. The ability to define your default orientation, which way you face by default, was added some time back.
  • (2004-02-12)
    reworked some menus 'again' by adding more redundancies (such as archer, bow, fullarcher, fullbow, archerbuffs, bowbuffs to all to the same thing for allegiance members). Because of all the buff bots doing the same thing with different commands it is getting to be a challenge to accommodate all the possible commands. :)
  • (2004-01-20)
    added remove as a redundant command to cancel, fixed mage buff to buff wands instead of weapons, made [buff] commands to work the same as full[buff] commands for allegiance members (such as sword and fullsword doing the same command).
  • (2004-01-06)
    reworked some menus and adjusted some functions to help prevent the stuck-bot syndrome.
  • (2003-12-27)
    updated with patch notes for November and December, upgraded to support new features of version 1.3b, or 1.3.0.5 (cancel buffs, bane worn articles).
  • (2003-10-03)
    added the ability to forward an message to our IRC channel, fixed a bug in bow buffs, added October patch info.
  • (2003-09-03)
    simplified and improved menus for readability, added September patch info.
  • (2003-08-26)
    updated 'patchnotes' to include current patch information, corrected some minor bugs in emote and help text.
  • (2003-08-15)
    corrected bug in 'dance' routine that would stall bot,
    updated rescue squad list.
  • (2003-08-05)
    expanded the 'patchnotes' to include a menu and information for consecutive patches,
    fixed small bug in 'banelugian' command,
    adjusted instructions for use of the 'chain' command.
  • (2003-08-04)
    corrected level 7 buffs,
    fixed self buffwand bug to include an Item Magic self buff.

(Script changes are explained as modifications are made.)
