- First of all u need Java installed on your host system.
- Then you download aochatproxy from https://code.google.com/p/budabot2/downloads/list
- After that extract the archive
- Edit the containing chatbot.properties file like this:
(This would be for the live server)
Note that if you are one of the few orgs that have more than 2K members, you will need two proxy bots in addition to the master bot (for a total of 3 bots in the AO Chat Proxy config).
bot1 is the master bot like Snakebite mentioned. If you are running Budabot as an org bot, this would be your org bot info.
bot2 will be the proxy bot, its only job is to care about friends. It does not need to be in the org and in fact it's better if it is not. You may need to roll a new char if you do not have one you can use. Faction and level do not matter.
You will now need to edit the Budabot config. Note that even tho you are setting up multiple bots with AO Chat Proxy, you will only set up one Budabot (the master bot).
Find this line in your config file (./conf/config.php):
$vars['use_proxy'] = 0;
Change to this:
$vars['use_proxy'] = 1;
Then save the file and close. I would suggest making a backup of you config file before making this changes just in case.
Now start the AO Chat Proxy. If everthing works it should give a message that says "Waiting for master bot on port 9993..." or similar.
Once you see that message, start Budabot. You can verify that it's using the AO Chat Proxy by looking at the AO Chat Proxy console logs. There will be a messages indicating that it has received a connection. You can also look in the Budabot startup logs for this message: "Connecting to AO Server...(127.0.0.1:9993)".
That should be it
