Grepolis bot – Alternatives

Since the last Grepolis update (2.96) the bot has stopped working completely. As those who continue playing Grepolis are possible looking for alternatives I’ll list a few here.

ALTERNATIVES
Name Status Pricing Features Note
GFBot (botsoft) Stable (Monthly) Subscription Click here Offers farming feature for free.
Offers additional 2 week free premium subscription for new users
GrepolisBot by Brandon Beta Free Farming
Building queue
Unit queue
For feedback and questions use GitHub

The GFBot is an older project that is being developed by Botsoft since a few years. It offers many features, however you can only use the farming feature for free. The other features require a (Monthly) Subscription. Using the download link in this post you get an additional 2 weeks to try the paid features for free. You can read the message of the BotSoft.org team here.

The GrepolisBot is still in early development but is free and already has important features such as farming and building/unit queues. It is open source and available on GitHub. GitHub can also be used to report any bugs or request new features.

Grepolis 2 bot – Development has ended

Notice

The development of the Grepolis 2 bot has ended. It has been a fun project but it is time to move on. The source code is now available on GitHub so other developers can continue my work.

Final release

The final release will remain available on this site and you can also find it on GitHub. The Grepolis developers are still testing the https (ssl) implementation, if they decide to add that I’ll release one more version so that the bot supports https.

Open source

The source code is available on GitHub. Feel free to fork my project to continue with your own version. If you have any questions about the source code, need some extra comments, or got compile errors, let me know.

Grepolis 2 bot – The future

Back in 2010 this all started as a small project for fun, the game was still at version 1 at that time (link). The only feature the bot had back then was a building queue. When the bot become more popular I decided to make one for Grepolis 2 as well, which was released in 2011.

Old building queue gui

Starting from the Grepolis 2 release many new features were added, resulting in a nice list of features, automating all the boring/time consuming tasks for us 🙂

It has been a very fun project to work on but it is almost time to move on. I’ll have finished my university later this year (+/- 3 months) and after that I’ll no longer work on the bot.
However, I do have some good news. I’m currently cleaning up the source code and adding additional comments to make everything understandable. As soon as this is process is finished I’ll put the source code on GitHub, it is a wonderful site for open source projects and it allows other developers to easily create their own version of the bot. I recommend all developers to create an account and have a look at the source code when it is available.

The https (ssl) update was originally planned at the end of March but for some reason they decided to postpone it. If the Grepolis developers release the https update after I have published everything on GitHub I’ll still fix it, you don’t have to worry about that 😉 However, after that I hope other developers continue the development.

ps. Because the strong decrease in donations and because it is hard  to keep track of this after stopping the development I’ll enable the “donator only” – features for everyone before moving the source code to GitHub.

Grepolis https (ssl) update

Last month (patchnotes 2.81) Grepolis mentioned they were moving to ssl at the end of March. Starting with a grace period, where https is still optional, and later forcing everyone to use https.

Currently the grace period has only started on the beta server, all regular servers still use http.

After doing some tests with https on the beta server everything is working fine, we have nothing to worry about when it is implemented on the regular servers.

Grepolis 2.83 warning

This is a warning for the 2.83 update that is coming this week, either the 24th or 25th depending on your server.

With this new update it is very easy to detect this bot and I recommend to stop using it for now.

Oops, false alarm guys. Was too late yesterday and I mixed up the request and response headers. As long as the changes are only applied to the response header then there is no problem at all :).

If the Grepolis developers decide to add version information to the request headers as well I’ll warn you again.

So, there is NO new bot detection added at this time.

//Update 2
My server should be updated to 2.83 today, and I’ll then do some final tests to check if any changes are necessarily. I’ll let you know tonight if Grepolis 2 Bot v2.81.0.2 still works or not.

//Update 3
Just finished testing and everything works fine. You can keep using v2.81.0.2 with this version.
