Grepolis Bot Guide

This is a short guide to get the bot working. First be sure you have the latest version. See the release notes for all the changes. If you are interested in the source code you can download that here.

The purpose of this bot is to give you an unlimited building queue. Besides that it is possible to attack the farmers on your island to get more resources. If you have any tips, bugs or questions you can use the comments or visit the support forums at elitepvpers.

Current functionality:

  • Unlimited building queue.
  • Unlimited army queue.
  • Three modus for attacking farmers. Attack, Support and Recruit.
  • Works for all languages.
  • Automatic reconnect on disconnect.


Quick start guide:

  • Exit the Grepolis website if you have it open.
  • Start the bot. Make sure files are in the same directory or subdirectory as the bot. See picture below.
  • Click View->Settings to configure your bot. (At least your Name, PW and Server info.)
  • Click Actions->Login. Wait till the statusbar shows “|| Ready”.
  • Click View->Army. Enter the number of units you want to use in battle.
  • (Repeat previous step for all your towns).
  • Click Actions->Start
  • Click on the “Build” buttons to add a building to the queue.
  • Go to View->”Army queue” to set the barrack and harbour queue.

    pfffffffffffffff. Can’t connect with ………… Check the settings

      • Uthar on April 30, 2012 at 23:24

      I think you are already using the 2.0 bot?
      That is located here:

      What settings are you using for your Main Server and Server?

    • big on May 15, 2012 at 23:00

    Great hob for this gane. Working well. Really….it’s a “must have for a greolis gamer. Thank’s for your job znd up date.

      • Anonymous on June 16, 2012 at 13:02

      from where did u get this bot

        • Uthar on June 19, 2012 at 11:59

        This was for the old version of Grepolis and will no longer work. You need to use this one:

    • Flo on May 17, 2012 at 06:58

    Great program!

    I got one question tho, did any1 else experienced a slower performance of grepolis bot after installing some windows updates, maybe .net framework updates as well? I’m asking cos after I reinstalled my windows 7 on the computer it worked absolutely great, nice fps when moving on map, fast opening the cities, etc. but after 1-2 days (updates were on auto so they installed themselves) it started running slow again, just like before the windows reinstall.

    Uthar, can you give me some advice of what should I tweek in order to run as before ?

    Btw, donator status is TOTALLY WORTH IT!

      • Uthar on May 17, 2012 at 15:09

      Good to know you like the extra features 🙂

      I suppose you already used Enable_IE9.reg?
      Besides that you could clean your internet cache and restart the bot.

      Windows updates shouldn’t decrease the performance of the bot. So you can just keep installing those updates.

        • Flo on May 21, 2012 at 21:44

        I’ve used the .reg and cleared the cache. It does run smoother now. If you got any extra tips to optimize the bot performance in the future, keep us posted.

        Thanks Uthar!

    • Magí on May 21, 2012 at 17:33

    how can i find my main server and my server for the bot, i’m from spain but i don’t know that information

      • Uthar on May 21, 2012 at 22:47

      You are looking at the wrong guide, here is the correct one:

      It also explains how to find your main server and server.
      It should look like this:
      Main server: es.grepolis.com
      Server: es10.grepolis.com

      Just make sure you change 10 in the correct number.

    • Arvydas on May 25, 2012 at 12:02

    I was banned by using BOT just one night. Permanently banned.

      • Rambo on May 29, 2012 at 16:57

      Never use the bot @ night!

      I believe they (Grepolis developers) are using a log for every player.

      Just don’t use the bot to long! (safe zone = 5hours)

    • Anonymous on July 2, 2012 at 07:49

    Could you make a script or something so you get swordsman from farmers instead of resources?

      • Uthar on July 2, 2012 at 11:17

      I don’t have plans for that at the moment.

    • Mareo on July 30, 2012 at 22:24

    How do I build buildings with Bot 2 v2.2.0.6????

      • Uthar on July 31, 2012 at 10:05

      This is the wrong guide, you need to read this one:

    • grepolis.. on August 2, 2012 at 16:10

    Hello i cant add army or resource.. i cant add anything with bot!!
    i have connect with my cities and i can see my cities with bot.. but i cant take nothing .. it is not work to me!

      • Uthar on August 2, 2012 at 23:24

      This is the wrong guide/bot, use this one:

      For the unit/building queue to work you have to wait until both the “next update” and “queue” timer have reached zero.

    • vik on August 3, 2012 at 06:08

    ive been banned couple times from farming every 5 mins you guys should switch to 20m and update 5min just a heads up thanx uthar good job bro

    • Knuefi on September 9, 2012 at 12:01

    Hey, my farming option isn’t working properly. Everytime I try to let the bot farm in a loot interval of 5 minutes, the bot needs approximately 7 minutes to get the goods. Is that done on purpose or do i have to change my settings? I’ve tried to set my refresh timer on 1,2,5 and 6 minutes but somehow, the bot skips the point when it should be able to farm

      • Uthar on September 10, 2012 at 10:09

      Wrong topic, this one is for a old version of Grepolis. Next time use http://bots.uthar.nl/155/grepolis-2-bot-guide

      But to answer your question. No, your settings are correct. It’s just that the server has a delay of 30-60 seconds. Because of this the server tells the bot the farmers aren’t ready yet and thus you have to wait until your next Refresh timer is ready.

    • joao on September 11, 2012 at 02:11


    i´’m a big fan of your job since i played grepolis 1.0 PT version but i stopped to plaing and now i’m back with the grepolis 2.0 BR version in the world19 and downloaded the latest version of the bot but when the browser of the software logs in my account and show the worlds that i have, but it gets back to the login page and then says “Can’t connect, check your settings”.

    I would like very much if you told me what to do to fix it

    thank you for your time

      • Uthar on September 11, 2012 at 10:12

      Welcome back then 🙂

      But it’s the wrong topic though, this one is for the 1.0 version of Grepolis. Next time use http://bots.uthar.nl/155/grepolis-2-bot-guide or post in the topic of your current version.

      Could you post the Main server and server you’re using? And also the debug.txt file.

      • Uthar on September 18, 2012 at 19:41

      The bot is free and you can download it here:
      You need to download the one called “Grepolis 2 Bot v2.3.0.1”

      The guide (tutorial) for this bot can be found here:
      You can find a download link there to download the .NET Framework.

    • Greivid on October 5, 2012 at 17:14

    Hi there,

    thanks for work in this project, but I have a question, is it work in spanish server???
    I ask for it because the farm doesn’t work for me S: .

      • Uthar on October 5, 2012 at 17:30

      Are you using the correct bot? Because you’re posting in the wrong topic. Here’s the correct one:

      The bot works for all languages, also on the Spanish server.

    • Optimus on November 29, 2012 at 01:33

    Hello my dear Uthar

    No doubt your bot is excellent, but I believe it has a little something that can be improved, is to add a button to update the page Bowser?

    Thus greatly facilitate use when on-line.

    Tomorrow is update, if it goes, launches a new version with this update button.


      • Uthar on November 29, 2012 at 11:12

      You can use the F5 button for that.

    • dessembrae on January 6, 2013 at 03:01

    it logs in and works fine, but the browser tab seems to get stuck on the loading page, farming and build and troops queing still works, but i can’t see anything lol

      • Uthar on January 6, 2013 at 15:53

      You’re posting at the wrong place, use this one the next time:

      First close the bot. Then make sure you have installed the latest version of IE. Run the “Enable_IE9.reg” file. And clear your internet cache. That should solve it.

    • marcondes on January 11, 2013 at 01:58

    I’ve a problem…

    i format my notebook and now, bot don’t work…

    “Can not conect check your settings…”

    what i need do to work ?

      • Uthar on January 12, 2013 at 15:46

      You’re posting at the wrong place, use this one the next time:

      I assume you already checked your username, password and server multiple times?
      If you are sure those are correct could you tell me what you see in the browser tab AFTER you get the message “Can not conect check your settings…”

    • ilo11 on April 30, 2013 at 10:52

    I’ve got a question: at the tab “Queue”, downstairs left, between “Building Target” and the button “Save” there is a picture of civil guard and option to choose numbers.
    How it works? What number shall I make and what will be the consequences?
    Thanks for reply.

      • Uthar on April 30, 2013 at 11:29

      Those numbers represent minutes. With this setting you can choose when you want to active the militia. 160 will for example mean that you active the militia 160 minutes before the attack arrives.

        • ilo11 on April 30, 2013 at 12:17

        thank you

    • Grepolis speler on May 25, 2013 at 07:22


    Is het moeilijk om een bot in C++ te schrijven?
    Welk programma (buiten visual studio) is hiervoor best te gebruiken?

    Ik vraag dit omdat, indien dit niet te moeilijk is wat kan proberen voor Linux Mint.

      • Uthar on May 25, 2013 at 13:40

      Als je al enige ervaring hebt met C++ is dit wel te doen. Maar je kan het jezelf eigenlijk zo makkelijk/moeilijk maken als je wilt.
      Ik zou het gewoon proberen en kijken hoever je komt. Houd het in het begin iig eenvoudig, je kan de bot later altijd nog uitbreiden.

      • Uthar on May 25, 2013 at 13:45

      De editor is meer een persoonlijke keuze, er is niet echt een “beste”. Maar zie http://www.codeblocks.org/home als voorbeeld. Als je deze wilt gaan gebruiken raad ik aan de laatste nightly te gebruiken:

    • MRMR on May 30, 2013 at 22:04

    only work for grepolis in english version or others too?

      • Uthar on May 30, 2013 at 22:30

      Works for all languages.

    • Bot51 on June 11, 2013 at 16:23

    Hi Utar, Thanks for creating this bot. It’s great! Nice Job!

    I have a question, once they caught you using the bot once, how likely is it they will keep an eye on your account in the future? Thanks.

      • Uthar on June 12, 2013 at 12:21

      It would be logical to assume that they watch you for some time but that is just a guess.

    • TBM on June 24, 2013 at 07:06

    This F5 bot is excellent. Obviously it is called the “F5” bot because of the need to hit F5 like every freaking minute or post. It would be nice to fix this rather than just stating over and over “THIS IS A KNOWN BUG, HIT F5” lol.

      • Uthar on June 24, 2013 at 20:35

      Thanks for the creative name, but I’ll keep the current one 😉
      If I knew how to improve the browser it would have been fixed a long time ago.

    • personne ;) on July 7, 2013 at 21:50

    ce bot peut il être detecter par grepolis ? ou innogame ?

    this bot can be detected by grepolis or innogame ?

      • Uthar on July 8, 2013 at 00:44

      Yes there is always a risk that they detect you. You can lower this by following the tips under “Detection status” (At the top right side of this page)

    • Nomi Sunrider on August 16, 2013 at 14:27

    Hi Uthar, I love your bot and I really appreciate your efforts!

    I like your bot so much that I am willing to help you make the best out of it.
    So let me give you some constructive advice:

    The main problem is that your bot acts logically while most players don’t. I don’t. Every time the bots does something, it checks EVERYTHING in the game. I never do that and I doubt others do it. Add an option to turn off all checks. Then players can still activate those they need and the bots checks a lot less, making it less suspicious.

    I only use the bot for farming and building so I don’t need any agora stuff or dock stuff or barack stuff. So leave away any unnecessary checks.

    Second, make the bot acts more impulsively. I often open random windows just to close them a second later. Let your bot do the same. This is very human and very un-bot-like.

      • Uthar on August 17, 2013 at 00:43

      Thanks for the feedback but wrong topic. This is the old bot from a few years ago, here’s the current one:

      Disabling some parts of the bot is something I plan to do (and is requested multiple times) but the bot is not developed with that in mind. A lot of features depend on multiple server requests, so disabling one thing effects a lot. I will look at this but I can’t guarantee to what extend I implement this.

      Last year the developers of Grepolis added a limit to the amount of request you could make in a specific time interval (Although I can’t verify if it is still active). There for I’m not going to add extra random requests but the current requests are already randomized in a human-like order to make it less detectable.

        • Nomi Sunrider on August 17, 2013 at 08:44

        I do not understand. I am using the GrepolisBot2_v2.40.0.1

        Is that the wrong one?

          • Uthar on August 17, 2013 at 11:30

          No you are using the correct version but you posted your message in the wrong place. If you scroll to the top of this page and read it you’ll notice this is an other bot.

    • Mavent on September 13, 2013 at 15:26

    Hey man, the bot seems to be broken. The browser window is showing only a few graphics, and no commands can be issued from it. For me at least, and I’ve tried on three computers.

      • Uthar on September 13, 2013 at 15:36

      Wrong guide, use this one: http://bots.uthar.nl/155/grepolis-2-bot-guide
