Here's a quick and dirty guide on how to run your bots 24/7 using Google Compute Engine (GCE). Google Cloud is giving free trial worth $300 credits to be used within 60 days. Part 0: Some prerequisites: Google account. Valid credit card. (USD$1 will be charged for validation purposes.) Part 1: Here are the registration steps: Go to https://cloud.google.com/compute/ Click on the "Free Trial" blue button. Login using your google account. Fill in the form and give your credit card info. Once you are done, you can start to create a 'project'. Part 2: Here are the steps to create a new VM: In your project, select 'Compute'->'Compute engine'->'VM instances' section in the left pane. Click on the blue 'New Instance' to create a new VM. In the 'create a new instance' section, fill in and select the following: a. Name - put in any name you desire. b. Zone - select default - 'us-central1-c' (Note: other zones cost more credits!) c. Machine type - select n1-highcpu-2 (2 vcpus, 1.8 GB memory) (Note: this is sufficient to run the bot smoothly. Other options are overkill and also cost more credits!) d. Image - select 'windows-server2012-r2-dc-v20150331' e. Username - any name you desire (do not use the same machine name as in step a! Failure to do so will not allow you to login to your server.) f. Password - Click on 'create or reset Windows password' button in the console.Use the password to login to your Windows 2012 machine and then change to the password you desire. g. External IP - select default - 'Ephemeral' h. Click on 'create' once you are ready. Part 3: Here are the steps to login and setup your VM: Click on your new VM to view the profile page. Click on 'Download the RDP' file to help you connect. Save the file into your PC desktop. Check the status of your VM creation via the Serial Console -> View output. Scroll all the way down to view this message. Please be patient as it may it up to 5-10mins for VM creation to complete: You can now start a RDP session into your VM using the downloaded file. Once you are remotely in your new 'Windows server 2012 R2', do the following steps: a. Go to the Server Manager window, select Local Server on the left menu and then disable the following: Windows Firewall Windows Update IE Enhanced Security Configuration b. Go to the Power Options to select Turn off Display to Never. You are now ready to transfer Bluestacks/AutoIt/MyBot files into the server. I use Teamviewer FTP function to do this transfer. ***Important - Install the latest version of Bluestacks available here: https://gamebot.org/forums/thread-2686.html Part 4: Final steps for running the bot without interruptions when logging out of RDP: For some strange reason, when you log-out of RDP, the bot stops running. A workaround to prevent this is to have a 'RDP over RDP' session. You can create an additional user ID in your server to do this. It should be something like this: Detailed steps: From your own desktop, login to your server via RDP using original 'user1' credentials. In the remote server logging in as 'user1' - install and run your bot. In the remote server logging in as 'user1' - create a new user - 'user2'. Disconnect your RDP session logging in as 'user1'. From your own desktop, re-connect your RDP session to your remote server - but this time login using 'user2'. Once you are in your remote server logging in as 'user2', you should see an 'empty' desktop without any bot running. 7. In the remote server logging in as 'user2', create a new RDP profile with Computer - 127.0.0.1 and User name: user In the remote server logging in as 'user2', you should see your bot running in the RDP session[user1] within your RDP session[user2]. From now on, on your own desktop, just use the RDP profile you have created in step 5 to check your bot. The steps above is for running a single bot in a single VM. What if you are running 'multiple' bots in 'multiple' VMs? Part 5: Monitoring your bot: On your PC/laptop: Use default RDC. On your Android/IOS devices: Download Microsoft 'RD Client' app. Part 6: How long can my bot run with free $300 credits? You can use the pricing calculator (https://cloud.google.com/products/calculator/) to estimate how long can your $300 credit last. If you have 2 or more VMs running 24/7, your $300 will not last a full 60 days. Below is a sample calculation for running 2 VM instances type n1-highcpu-2: Estimated cost is ~$200/month. With $300 free credits, 2VMs running 24/7 can last ~45days.
What is VPS? A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual machine sold as a service by an Internet hosting service. A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system, and customers have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS - Wikipedia Where do I get a VPS? There are free or 'free trial' VPS and there are paid VPS listed below. Free or 'free trial' VPS do not last long and performance may degrade over time due to abusive usage and overcrowding. Paid VPS lasts as long as you need based on a number of credits you purchase or the term of your lease i.e. monthly, quarterly, etc. Paid VPS performance is generally more stable, however, that will also depend on how the VPS is managed by the provider. Why do I need a VPS? The most common reason is you want to run your bot 24/7. You want to run multiple bots on multiple CoC accounts. You do not have a powerful PC to run virtualization i.e. VMWare or Hyper-V. Other reasons like you do not want to short-lived your laptop running 24/7, you want to avoid paying a hefty electricity bill, you cannot stand the humming sound of your PC running all night. More reasons in the Top 18 list below. How do I use a VPS? There are How-to guides written on how you can set up a VPS on some of the providers listed below. These how-to guides can be a bit too technical and if you do not feel comfortable setting up a VPS on your own, I suggest that you go for the 'Clash of Clans Bot ready' VPS listed below.
