What is, precisely, the nature of the help you require?
What part of the program are you having trouble with?

If it's a game, wouldn't it be actually more interesting to play it? It's not like you have to play games, do you? They wouldn't be games otherwise.

But anyway, you still haven't told me what you're having trouble with? I understand what your goal is, I just don't understand what you are stuck on.

are you trying to make a bot? isn't that cheating?

Making a bot isn't a simple task. It requires you knowing a lot about the game you are writing a bot for. It requires you being able to read data from the game (not a simple task! Screen scraping might work -- look it up) and to send back commands to the game (somewhat easier - SendKey or something like that should work). Of course, in the middle, you need to be able to program somewhat intelligent decision-taking routines.

I hate to say this but, if you don't have any programming experience (this is the For Beginners forum you are posting in), this is way beyond your reach. If you don't have any idea of where to start or what is involved in making a bot, you're in way over your head.

As for us helping you create it, if you do have specific questions about specific problems encountered during the creation process, do ask us. But we won't be able to just "help you create it", by which you seem to mean "do the work for me".

If i was willing to pay someone to help or even do it for me. would anyone help me?


Possibly, but I can tell you in advance it probably won't be cheap. And this forum isn't really the right place to ask. We can help you learn to program, though.

I know it won't be cheap. But i am willing to see how much and maybe learn to program. That would probably be a lot cheaper. Do you know where i could go to find someone to ask to do it for me?

Whether you're capable of writing it or not, I don't recommend doing it for World of Warcraft. Last I heard they were extremely strict on this and were prosecuting anyone caught using a bot. Surely having a level 60 WoW character isn't worth legal prosecution? [smile]

Ya i'm not sure what game exactly, those were just a couple i thought of. I would just like to get help or get a program to use, so i can use it on a game.

You can try the Help Wanted forum (though you'll probably just get flamed), or a site like rentacoder.com - of course, they don't accept bids for programs that violate TOS of other services ...

What about a programmer here one of the members. Do you know of any that could help me or point me to someone that could?

You're trying to make what we all like to call an "autoer." First off, you have no idea what you're doing. So how about you get an idea, and find the appropriate place to do that. Here at GameDev, we don't do that.

why would anyone here want to make a program for you that undermines the hard work of other programmers like ourselves?
