When you close the application we will no longer be able to access your PC. You can download it here http://www.teamviewer.com/download/ - ### How many clients can I run with phBot? - phBot itself has no limit. - ### I constantly get stuck in my script and I have re-recorded it multiple times. What can I do? - Use a 250 millisecond delay or higher and avoid the Statue of Justice's yourself. - ### My pick pet gets disabled in game when using the bot. - The bot **must** disable the pick pet otherwise the client will try to pick up items that are not in the pick filter. The bot will manage the pick pet instead of the client. This is supposed to happen. - ### My bot does not resurrect dead players. - Make sure you have the res skill in your primary buff list or secondary buff list. - ### My bot does not pick gold. - There are three gold values in the pick filter. Small, medium, and large all need to be set to pick in order for it to pick gold. - ### The client gets stuck at the loading screen when going back to the client. - The bot requires 1 return scroll for it to work properly. If it does not teleport within 1 minute then you probably do not have any return scrolls. - ### How can I copy my pick filter so I can use it with another character? - Go to your config folder and find Server_CharacterName.db3 (obviously Server will be your server and CharacterName will be your character name) and copy/paste it into the same folder. Rename it to your other characters name. Change 'Server' if you need to. - ### How do I make the bot turn in job cave quests? 1. Record a script that goes from your training area to the job cave NPC. 2. Save it. 3. Go to the loop tab and click the 'Set walk path for job cave' button. 4. Select the script you just saved. 5. Now take all of the quests from the job cave NPC that you want phBot to turn in. 6. Go back to your training spot and start the bot. - ### After the server merge phBot does not load my config. - Go to your config folder and rename any config that has the old server name in it and change it to the new server name. - ### Silkroad gives me a BSObj error message. - Close phBot and run Silkroad.exe. Let the game update. - ### How do I buy the free potions that are now in iSRO and SilkroadR? - phBot will automatically buy them if your level is < 70. This also occurs on cSRO SilkroadR. - ### Silkroad automatically goes clientless. - Your client crashed. phBot does not kill the client unless you press the 'Go Clientless' button. - ### Does a dynamic IP have any affect on the number of PC's that are allowed to be used with phBot? - The maximum number of PCs that are allowed is **3**. It's based off of a hardware id and not IP addresses. - ### I can't login to the bot. - Make sure your username and password do not contain any special characters such as * or - or _ or + etc. - ### Do I need to wait for my bot time to expire before I can repurchase? - No. You can repurchase whenever you want. - ### My items disappear when phBot puts them into storage. - Teleport or relog. - ### My username or password isn't being sent correctly while using the command line. - Put the username or password in quotes. - ### What is clientless? - Clientless means without client. Which means Silkroad does not need to be running while you are using phBot. The bot manages everything. - ### What information do you store on your servers? - The only information we store in our database is your ProjectHax login information (obviously), payment transaction id's / expiry dates, and a HWID to prevent more than 3 computers from sharing the same account. No Silkroad information is sent from phBot to us. Not even character names. - ### When do hardware ID's reset? - Every day at ~00:00 UTC. - ### I keep getting attacked by hunters/thieves while I'm botting. What can I do? - Go to the job quest NPC and get the 'safe trade' quest. Hunters/thieves that are 5 levels above you will not be able to attack you. - ### Does phBot work with any private servers? - Yes. vSRO 1.188/1.192/1.274, thSRO, Black Rogue, and cSRO SilkroadR. - ### phBot doesn't store items in guild storage. - Your town script must walk to the guild storage NPC and have 'DoGuildStorage' after you reach the NPC. - ### When is the free trial period? Tuesday morning (after the inspection) starting at: 5:00 -> 17:00 UTC 12:00AM -> 12:00PM EST - ### How can I use berserk in the script? - Add `cast,berserk` to the script. - ### How can I see how much time I have left? - [https://projecthax.com/payments.php](https://projecthax.com/payments.php) - ### I can't login to Silkroad using the command line. - Certain special characters need to be escaped as well as put in quotes. ``` % -> %% \ -> \\ " -> \" ``` - ### I get a "world server traffic" error message. 1. You connect to the gateway server (login server). The game server you try to login to is completely full. 2. The gateway server sees that there is a slot open. 3. You connect to the agent server (game world), but by the time you connect someone else has taken your slot giving you the "world server traffic" error. or Your password has a captial/lowercase letter in it when it should be the opposite and the game world server can't handle it giving you the same error message. - ### Do I need separate folders for each character? - No. - ### Why does the login delay sometimes change from 8s to 20s? - The server determines the delay between login packets. If the server is packed the login delay will be higher. - ### phBot opens but does not load. - Look for a phBot.ini.lock file and delete it.
