Captcha Service – 9kw.eu
This is a short tutorial explaining the captcha service 9kw.eu. 9kw is a credit based captcha service, this means that you need credits to solve your captcha’s.
To earn credits you can solve the captcha’s of other users. You can do this on their website or you can use the android app found here. Solving captcha’s on the website gives you +7 credits and the android app gives you +8 credits.
Each time someone solves your captcha it will cost you 10 credits.
To use 9kw with the Grepolis bot you first need to create an account by clicking on the following link: http://www.9kw.eu/register_en_2709.html. New accounts get 30 credits to start with.
After that you’ll receive an email with your new password. When you’re logged in on the website you can create an API key. Your credits are linked to this key and you’ll need this key for the bot.
Follow the next couple of steps to create a key:
Click on “API Key”, see screenshot.
Click on “API”, see screenshot.
Copy the generated API key and paste it in the Grepolis bot settings tab.
The setting “Self Solve” allows you to solve your own captchas when you are away from your computer. For this to work you also need to enable the “Self Solve” option at 9kw.eu and you need to download the app at 9kw.eu.
With the setting “Priority (1-10)” you can give your captcha request extra priority. Increasing the priority cost minimal +1 extra credits, with a maximum of +10 depending on your priority setting.
The “Min. Workers” and “Max. Queue” settings are used to delay the bot. The delay can be specified with “Extra Delay (sec)”. “Min. Workers” is the number of workers that must be available to solve the captcha. “Max. Queue” are the maximum number of captchas that are allowed in the queue.
If your useragent contains MSIE 7.0, like in the screenshot below. You first need to run the “Enable_IE9.reg” file. Otherwise the bot will not be able to detect the captcha message.
Now you’re done! The bot will automatic solve every captcha as long as you have enough credits.
