DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE ZIP FROM GITHUB!
This bot requires you use git to download the bot. Downloading the zip will not work! It doesn't work because the bot uses git submodules, which are not included with the zip download.
There are several things you must do in order to get SteamBot working:
- Download the source using Git.
- Compile the source code.
- Configure the bot (username, password, etc.).
- Optionally, customize the bot by changing the source code.
Getting the Source
AGAIN: DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE ZIP FROM GITHUB!
Retrieving the source code should be done by following the installation guide on the wiki. The install guide covers the instructions needed to obtain the source code as well as the instructions for compiling the code.
Configuring the Bot
Next you need to actually edit the bot to make it do what you want. You can edit the files
AdminUserHandler.cs or you can create your very own
UserHandler. See the configuration guide on the wiki. This guide covers configuring a basic bot as well as creating a custom user handler.
While running the bots you may find it necessary to do some basic operations like shutting down and restarting a bot. The console will take some commands to allow you to do some this. See the usage guide for more information.
