  1. How To Download MyBot.run Clash of Clans Farming Bot Thank you for asking how to download MyBot.run!! Current official bot release and download links can always be found in Official Releases forum section. Having problems? If you have issues and the GitHub links in current release thread do not work for you, then you may have a local network or PC issue that needs to be fixed? 1) Have you used another CoC bot before finding MyBot.run? Oops. No problem! Some copy cat bots that steal MBR code, and offer it for sale will perform a HOSTS file HIJACK. This will block your PC from reaching GitHub (and sometimes MBR forums). Your favorite search engine can show you how to check and edit your HOSTS file for your Windows OS version, here is one example site. While very rare, some older web browsers can also be hijacked to block websites. To fix this you need to clear your entire browser history (only works after other CoC bot is removed from system). 2) Do you have internet filter or firewall at your location? Since GitHub is public site, and there can be any kind of software available for download (including hacking tools); Some countries and corporations will block GitHub. If you are trying to reach GitHub behind one of these firewalls, then either need to use VPN, or some other internet location to bypass the blocking filters. 3) Is download blocked by Anti-Virus (AV) program? The bot is not a virus. It is made with a scripting language named AutoIt, which is sometimes used by people to create malware. This causes antivirus programs to mark ALL AutoIt programs as viruses, even if they don't harm your system. The AutoIt code of the bot is freely available; you can look through it and compile it yourself if you are worried. Need more information? Read this from people who make AutoIt language used to create MBR: https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/AutoIt_and_Malware If the bot is detected by your antivirus software: create new folder to store MBR download zip file, add the folder to your antivirus exception list/whitelist and download/extract the bot to that same folder. 4) Are files missing from your download? When visiting GitHub site to download MyBot.run and not using the .zip download links in our release thread, beware that you may not be downloading the proper branch of repository. Our master branch is only used to store version files to notify users for new releases. A zip file with latest release can always be found on releases page of GitHub. Another missing file issue can be your Anti-virus software removing files from zip file, or deleting them when extracted. Read #3 for more information regarding AV problems. General Information: MyBot.run uses GitHub software sharing site for all software releases with community. Our GitHub repository top level is here > https://github.com/MyBotRun/MyBot On this site, you find newest and all past releases by development team. Our repository even has a Wiki with installation, licensing, and History of MyBot.run. The Github repository is primarily used as our download library and is not open for public editing. All problems/issues/bug reports are only supported via this web forum. Thanks for supporting your community!
  2. How to share bot settings with community using Strategy Files: MyBot.run has a special feature to enable easy sharing of Bot Attack settings with community! It is called Strategy sharing feature and is found on Attack Plan >> Strategies tab: With this feature you can easily share your attack settings to others, without need to capture many images of bot tabs, store on image sharing site, and post them in a thread! What is Strategy and how is it stored? : The strategy files are simple text files, saved in same ".ini" format as used in profile configuration files. These files can be edited with notepad, and then cut and paste directly into forum posts without need to used a file storage service (like Mega, or FileShare). Instead you can use "spoiler" inside your post to hide and store your long Strategy file. Here is what Strategy feature looks like in GUI, First you have the Load Strategy tab: Here you will find all the strategy files currently saved with your bot folder in the Strategies folder. Bot will load all Strategy files found when it starts. At any time you can copy new strategies files to this folder, and then use open strategy folder button to load them. When a Strategy file is selected you will see the Notes that are saved with file. There is also a "Load Configuration" button. When a new Strategy is loaded, it will replace your existing ATTACK settings. [You might want to save your current settings first?] Next you have the Save Strategy Tab: To save a new strategy file is really simple: 1-Give your strategy file a name. Bot will automatically created unique time stamped name if you do not edit this field. 2- Review the bot created notes, and add your own comments if needed. 3- Push the "Save Configuration" button, and your attack settings file will be saved in the Strategy folder. There are many ways to use Strategies. 1- Use them store your favorite attack settings, such as one for each push CSV, or farming method, you might use. When done pushing, you can load your old saved Strategy to get back to farming. 2- Use them to share your attack settings in the forums. 3- Use them to transfer your attack settings between bot versions. (copying profile folders between version is not recommended, can/will cause problems) Using Strategy feature is really simple, and will hopefully make it easier for your to share your attack settings with others! If you find a bug with this feature, please report it properly in current bug reporting forum. Thanks for supporting your community!
  3. Dec Update: Bluestacks versions below v3.0 have known compatibility issues with latest Windows 10 and Windows Server 2017 OS updates. 2017 Windows 10 OS "creators" update that is finally being rolled out to most PC worldwide. This update force enables HyperV emulation, and this is not compatible with Bluestacks v1 or v2. Compatibility information is available on Microsoft or Bluestacks support web sites. If you disable the new HyperV setting in control panel (and prevent latest virtual desktop features from working), BS v2.5 can be used on some Windows 10 PC. If you can not disable HyperV emulation, then you need to use BS v3+ on Windows 10 2017. It is possible to force BS versions prior to V2.5 to run with 2017 Windows 10 creators update, but it requires several permanent changes to system registry and other system setting changes (not recommended for typical PC user or PC being used for more than farming). Windows 7/8 users can continue to versions 0.10.7 unrooted, v2.2 and v2.5 described below. For all versions, SC game update sometimes require Google Play Store, Google Play Games, or Google Play Services updates to work properly.. Make sure you have latest versions in Play Store! Here are some notes on various Bluestacks versions for reference: -- BS v0.9.X - Not recommended Used by many community members. No reason to upgrade unless you have issues with Google Play Games and "Gamer ID". Has many reported problems with Google Play games and Google Play services auto app updates. These require you to remove/reinstall CoC app and Google Account with every major update. Since the October 2016 game update, this version now has issues randomly crashing game and returns to main BS home screen. -- BS v0.10.X - Recommended Windows 7/8 only >>> BS v0.10.7.5601 non-rooted Most older rooted BS versions crash since Oct 2016 update, but original version can be downloaded from FileHippo and is running fine for most community http://filehippo.com/download_bluestacks_app_player/64518/ Non-rooted version does require manual removal of free download games advertising. Just Disable 'App Sync' & 'My Bluestacks' Apps (Disable Option Is in AppInfo) To Remove Bluestacks Ads" or follow the instructions here > http://druss.co/2015/06/how-to-remove-bluestacks-ads-sponsored-apps-popup/ While BS is spamming older version BS users with messages to upgrade, and even forcing automatic updates to latest version; v0.10.7 is best emulator for running a single emulator on your PC. Fastest, lowest resources, and is heavily used by community with great success. Has had some minor issues with Google Play service updates not being applied properly and Google Play Games "Gamer ID" failing to operate. Unless you understand process for fixing app version compatibility issues, most problems with this version are solved with simple removal & installation, install latest Google Play Games, and the install latest CoC. 2019-Feb Update: Clash of Clans might not install or update from Play Store with error "CPU ABI incompatible" or so. In that case just install the latest arm-v7a version from apkmirror.com: https://www.apkmirror.com/wp-content/themes/APKMirror/download.php?id=599517 -- BS v2.0.X - Not recommended for new installations >>> BS v2.0.2 rooted ALL versions of BS prior to latest v2.2 are being spammed with upgrade notices. Most stable version found by MBR community is v2.0.2. The rooted version available in our forums was created by a Russian user and has some minor language/keyboard settings that are easily to change, and it works well. Most of Google Play games updates experienced with v0.1.X are gone with this version. Requires more system resources and users of old Core Duo CPU report minor lag issues. A portion of community have reported that this rooted version has same CoC app crash as all v0.XX versions. -- BS v2.1X - Not Recommended for new installations ALL versions of BS prior to latest v2.2 are being spammed with upgrade notices. Most stable version with spam free download found by MBR community is v2.1.7. Some Win 10 users report lag issues with all 2.0.X versions is lower using v.2.1.X. I recommend you download spam free native BS installer for v2.1.7.5658 linked from XDA site: http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki/BlueStacks_App_Player Look in table of BS versions for v2.1.7.5658 and it has a download link. Then use the instructions in this thread using BS Easy to create your own de-bloated & rooted BS: https://mybot.run/forums/index.php?/topic/15318-tools-auto-root-any-bluestacks-remove-ads-08103096-to-2185663/ This process is not hard. But, There is no shame in admitting that creation of your own rooted version of BlueStacks is too complicated for you to accomplish. You can use any recommended version. Update: The newer v2.2+ versions of BS2 fix internal bugs with app compatibility, and bot has been taught how to better control them. -- BS v2.2.X+ - Most releases up through v2.5.XX have been tested to work better on Win7/8 systems - may not work for every hardware configuration. All version of BS after v2.1.8 included 2 different virtualization engines in program. They have legacy mode for older PC, and new virtualization engine that is using Oracle Virtual box technology used by some of newer emulators. New virtualization engine allows BS to have multiple apps open in separate tabs (in halt state when hidden - not useful for bot), and quickly switch between them. Development team has been in constant update mode trying to deal with v2.2+ BS and fact that is installs/behaves differently based on users hardware configuration. Many users of i3/i5 CPU prior to Gen 4 hardware are having issues with new virtualization support, and get errors such as BS is stuck trying to start up. One of our long time top contributors has posted rooted v2.2.27.6431 & rooted v2.4.43.6254 in this forum. So if your PC is less than 2-3 years old; one of these versions may work well for you. Note: It appears the newest versions of BS are now setting a default Android DPI of 240 in registry. The bot image detection is trained with standard DPI setting of 160 used on older versions. You need to check registry and edit/remove this new setting as discussed here. -- BS v2.5.X+ - Supported on Windows 7/8/10, Recommend v2.5.43 All recent versions of BS 2.5.x should work. A copy of BS v2.5.43.8001 rooted can be found here: https://mybot.run/forums/index.php?/topic/23339-rooted-bluestacks-25438001/ MBR v6 had some issues controlling latest BS2 versions. Since V7 release these have been resolved and BS2.5 works well with bot. The v2.5.43 has fixed most of the installation issues on older PC where wrong virtualization mode was selected, and run well on older or resource limited PC. All above BlueStacks Versions: Will need to apply registry fix to stop BS phoning home and forcing auto update without your approval. https://mybot.run/forums/index.php?/topic/19107-tool-remove-bluestacks-shared-folders-stop-spam-in-taskbar/ Just remember to run BS and add your Google ID after installation AND before applying the reg file to make sure BS initializes correctly first. If you modify the registry values before BS is fully installed, it will get stuck forever at blue loading screen and you must reinstall. -- BS v3.X+ - Supported (actually based on BS v2.10.X) BS v3.X version seems to be based on BS v2.10.X and does work. Though, DPI must be validated and manually set in Windows Registry to 160. See HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\BlueStacks\Guests\Android\BootParameters and find the DPI=xxx value and change xxx to 160. Full reboot with HD-Quit.exe required! Also, the Launcher is missing - so just install Nova Launcher using "ADB install" on the downloaded APK and all is good. Existing manual ads removal doesn't seem to work - for me this one did: 1. Launch adb shell using HD-Adb.exe or adb.exe 2. Within shell call /system/xbin/bstk/su 3. Then call pm block com.uncube.account Having Problem choosing which version? Read this thread: What is best emulator? Best Luck.
  4. Bluestacks (v0.9.XX to v2.18 tested) has 2 bad behaviors that most users desire to change. 1) Bluestacks is constantly sending web requests to Bluestacks servers checking for updates and also sending time and app usage data home. Recently, many users of older versions of Bluestacks are receiving tray messages that V2 is available or even messages that versions prior to BS 2.0 are no longer supported and will be disabled. :This behavior can be prevented by changing IP address of BS servers to local host 127.0.0.1, so BS can longer phone home. 2) By default, Bluestacks always adds shared folder links inside registry to enable apps inside BS to access several of your shared folders. These folders include "My Documents", "Pictures", "Public Pictures", and Public Documents". If your BS is rooted than you are exposing these shared folders to any app running in BS. This represents a potential method for SC to find bot users, and ban them. : We can stop this behavior by removing path location to shared files so they are not available inside BS. The attached registry editor file corrects both these bad behaviors. >>> BlueStacks Registry Security Fix update06032106.reg Mirror link Here Mirror link2 Here Simply download, and from an account with administrator access, double click to run file, then reboot PC to have it active. It will permanently fix the BS bad behavior unless you reinstall or update BS. If you are paranoid and want to see exactly what file is changing, right click on file and select edit. Hope this helps! PS - have tested on a couple Win7 PC, should work for most other OS, but I can provide any support if it does not work on your PC. You can easily open file with edit to see keys edited, and find those same keys your BS installation. [Update June 3, 2016] Several users that already have been infected with forced update message from BS servers, suggested an addition to reg file to remove problem. File has been updated to remove information on update. Best Luck!
  5. Random Thoughts on Randomization of MyBot.run functions to reduce risk of latest SC "Fair Play" initiative: 1) Big Data is everywhere. SuperCell is using Amazon to host all games (except in China). Amazon is one of largest "Big Data" companies in world. Hence, must assume that SC has access to big data, and massive tool set to create/track player game style signatures. Only question(s) without answer is how much money is SC willing to spend to track actions of farming bots, and ban users. And what are "signatures" or key behavior that are considered Bot like that is used to to find bot users? Other games have had bot problems in past, and tools like Botwatch for Runscape are examples of what game developers can do to stop use of bots if they invest time/money to stop it. 2) "Fair Play" initiative is going to give more risk using a Bot than it has in past. We are entering into a new phase of Bot use for CoC! Users are likely to be banned for using MBR in higher numbers than past. I have worked with big data, and human behavioral statistics in real life. Honestly, there are several pieces of data available that identifies every user of farming bot running inside an emulator. I will not list them but with these data points, I could make a list of bases to use for a detailed check of suspicious activity. That is exactly how easy it is to find bots! So do not ever think you are safe! If you are not willing to be punished for using a farm bot, then DO NOT USE IT! 2) Individual humans are NOT random. Each person has a game playing style, that defines their thought process and actions inside game. Gamers tend to have consistent reactions to game events, and only a BOT will be completely random all time! MBR does not need total randomization, but needs individualized "personal signature" randomization to be more human like. Creating code that allows personalized game styles is as complex as creating humans! 3) Only an entire population of game users is "pseudo" random. "pseudo" meaning the entire population will be constrained by game elements and will behave similar with similar game features. Hence, portions of game playing actions will be bot like or repeatable person to person even without using a bot. Challenge faced now is to learn which actions are constrained and being ignored (or not collected) for Big Data analysis used to find farm bot users. 4) Randomization of robot game play requires careful understanding of game and process used by people to play game. Cannot randomize code based on what is convenient for programming. Need to randomize events based on differences in human responses to game events. This is an area where need to collect data on different game playing styles to enable creation of personalized "random" game play so not all bot users look like same "bot" person playing game. MBR already has numerous settings to enable random variability, but users may not be thinking about creating random play style or using existing features to create play style similar to how they play game normally. More education may be required to help users understand how to set up MBR to match their game play style. There are many areas of existing bot code that could provide more randomization. One of popular examples last couple days: Waiting for creation of troops or What to do while waiting for troops to train? Here are some possible options: - Do nothing and let CoC time out? - hit screen every couple of minutes to keep alive and avoid "anyone there?" msg? - Make use of 5 minute grace timer, and log out or allow time out COC for less than 5 minutes? - Make use shield/guard, and log out or allow time out if protected till troops ready? - Open chat window and wait for donations ? - Maybe notify user for manual CHAT/donate time with clan? - open army overview and check creation status? - Close CoC and open another SC app? - all of above? Hmm: How long to wait for troop creation? - Exact time required to create army? - Wait till guard and/or shield expires? - Wait random time? I.E. random time normally controlled by real life So now that we have all these possible actions: How to choose which action, when to use each action, and how often to use? Randomization to create human like behavior is very complex and this is ONLY ONE FUNCTION! The purpose of this post is simple. Many users are making all kinds of wacky posts in forums trying make MBR more random and reduce ban risk. Hopefully this post shows that unless you consider ALL factors surrounding an action in game, your cool new idea may actually make bot action more predictable and easier to detect! Challenge moving forward is how to create new code that makes bot actions randomly adjustable, and allows for users to customize behavior to mimic his/her style. This kind of complex code is NOT created in a few hours and added to MBR quickly. This kind of randomness requires a complete rewrite of how bot works in some places! To make this work even more difficult, Randomizing some of the above variables is not really possible using AutoIt scripting language due single thread limitations. I encourage entire community to think about what human like game playing really means, and hundreds of game processes where Bot detection could be added if SC devotes time and money to track bot like behaviors. This new initiative is going to make bot life interesting in coming months. If you have code skills to help community create true human like code, then I look forward to seeing your MOD code posted. If you are creating code make functions wacky random, then might as well stop as it will not help. Thanks for reading my insanely long post & Bot ON! PS - This post is MY opinion, and may not represent opinion of entire development team. Do not blame entire team for my bleak view for complexities of future bot life. BOTTOMLINE: If you are not willing to be punished for using a farm bot, then DO NOT USE IT!
