This guide will give you an overview on how to work with the new Bot manager command line system to interact with and administer the running bots.

Bot Manager Commands

The Bot Manager allows a user to command the bots, whether in separate processes or in separate threads. It allows the user/administrator to interact with the bots via the console window using text commands.

  • start <index in configuration>: Start the bot that is at the index specified in settings.json. Index is a zero based value.
  • stop <index in configuration>: Stop the bot that is at the index specified in settings.json. Index is a zero based value.
  • show bots: Dump the bot configuration to the console
  • help: Shows available commands
  • auth : use to enter in a Steam Guard authentication string. The command is in the format auth X=Y where X = zero-based index of the configured bot and Y = the steamguard code.

The UseSeparateProcesses option from settings.json controls whether the bots will will remain part of the same process but use separate threads or have separate processes per bot. The bot manager commands will work either way.
