Monopoly Autobot V7.6

Posted in Uncategorized on October 17, 2009 by 1stpl4ce

EDIT (by bestcheater): If you haven’t already entered the Street Giveaway Competition below then do so! Competition will end quite soon.

Now available, Autobot Version 7.6

7.6 EXE ZIP
2F9BD0748E014D67D3C26076BBD1DDBE
7.6 EXE
FBC3B31B1EA07977B59CDA79D0F8821B

New Features 7.6: Street scanner now pimps out async io like it should . It gets 32 or so completed queries a second now. Its a lot faster. It can go even faster, but now the server gets mad at me and shuts me down and I have “forcibly closed down by the host” errors. If you get that, you need to make it go slower. This version doesn’t make it go slower as a config for the user yet. Look for 7.6.1 in the near future.

New Features 7.5: Street Scanner now uses asynch io. Its supposed to be better than the approach I used. it doesn’t seem much faster for me tho. Let me know how it goes. Also, the parse thing now takes google map coordinates as well as wireshark copies. So you can use googlemaps and get the coords for your box.

Bug fixed: that stadium in the build bot is fixed, I think.

Not bug fixed: still can’t get logged in as or select opponents with spaces in names even with all the easy to implement suggestions I’ve been given. 😦

7.0 Notes

In street searcher, you can now search on a particular username to find roads in the list that are owned by a particular person. Pretty handy for recovering from a BANNING…. it puts the streets it finds in the MARK list. I’ve had to write them down manually, but its a small price to pay for getting back those sweet streets.

Note: I have had some threading trouble with the damn thread unsafe data grid control so if it crashes when you click the grid when the scanner is running, know that I am aware of the issue and have thought ALOT about different approaches to solving it, and haven’t come up with a good solution yet. If one of you geniuses out there knows what I can do to to prevent this race condition, please ridicule me in public, then help out a noob (me)! Also note the code in this version is not my best idea at this point. I thought of a better way of managing the individual thread street lists (each have its own list instead of locking on a single list) which might improve performance. I haven’t written that yet and its Friday and I wanted this out there for the weekend.

Also, improvements to build bot include the addition of “pause” functionality for getting dozers, bonus cards, and hazards. Just type the word “pause” in the combobox associated with the event you want to pause on, and the bot will pause and let you manually deal with either through the buttons on the bottom of the buildbot form or in the browser. I also added exception handling to those bottom buttons so a bad response from the server wont cause unhanded exception errors.

There’s probably more in there, but I forget now.

Happy BOT’ing.

Oh and my comment on HASBRO’s OPEN LETTER
Seriously Hasbro, I could understand the NOOBISHNESS of this game if you weren’t a major game publisher. But you are a big company with big, well respected brands who’s histories stretch back almost a century. You shouldn’t risk public goodwill on half baked promo’s like this. And furthermore, the main problems with this game wouldn’t have required much more attention to detail or money to prevent. But your apology is accepted, provisionally. Please continue to improve the game, fix bugs, and address the issues that remain. Of particular problem now is the lack of decent streets to buy. Banned accounts have hundreds (individually) and thousands (collectively) of the best streets in the world locked up, and the 1-week auto-accept of offers seems broken, as well as the two-week auto sell back. These need to implemented and/or fixed ASAP.

Now with 503 delays, a offer maker, and some bug fixes:
Autobot V6

Version 6 ZIP MD5
75BC0C86306890343D4A3F7C22F21F1F
Version 6 EXE MD5
9F87074C176F2720F0E58F0419DE5A11

Enjoy.

Note: there was a version 5, and 1 person downloaded it. It had an experimental bot for rejecting orders in it, which I had intended to remove but I forgot cuz Im watching football too. It doesn’t work anymore anyways, with the fix on the server.

UPDATE: I always thought it was really unfair that Mr Monopoly sold off some of his streets a while back. I mean why play favorites? So I took care of one his nepotistic sales: Wall Street.

Wall Street

Enjoy your new street, proman.

The battle continues! Even though they can ban every new account I make, they cannot stop me working Mr Monopoly’s offers over.

Autobot as Alternate Client

Hi everyone. Just wanted to let you know about something I discovered today.

accepting trades

Using the autobot, you can play with a jailed account. Thats right.

Ok here is the deal… they jail you and take all your money right?

No big.. just wait a day and login. You get your defacto 1 million, believe it or not.

Then u can use the autobot to buy and build on streets. Checkout Firstplace’s account. Hes got a street and i bought it and built it using the autobot.

Edit: Since the publication of this blog post, they have re-confiscated my street. It had a trade pending on it, so I accepted that trade. But I still have money!

EDIT/CLARIFICATION: This post is written by Firstplace. Bestcheater does not use/advise the use of an autobot. Use at your own pleasure.

I have gotten to a point where I want to share this with people. Its got bugs, its hard to figure out, and it generally sucks rotten eggs, so don’t bitch at me if you don’t like it. But it works for me. Use at your own risk.

Note: It requires you to log in, and requires you to enter your password, and saves out your hash to an xml file where ever you put it so you’ll need to have write privs in the directory you put it. Because it asks for a password, you are WELL ADVISED to verify the application is authentic, as a hacker could try to create a version that emails him your password. I used to taunt you here, but I got banned. Lol.

New Version 3 fixed login bug with mixed upper/lowercase usernames.

Hats off to LIFEISAHIGHWAY

Posted in Uncategorized on September 26, 2009 by 1stpl4ce

Oh my… just finished an epic battle that began yesterday around the server reset with LIFEISAHIGHWAY.   Let me tell you, he is one formidable foe.  I was successful, however, in ensuring my rent was paid 🙂 !!!
RENT PAID
It was clear by about 11pm last night that LIFEISAHIGHWAY was using a script to build and doze with. I had no such tools at my disposal. Luckily I am skilled in the arcane arts of software development, and fired up my compiler and wireshark. By 230AM, I had something doing the basics pretty well, although not nearly as automated as they eventually became.
Here is a look of some the code.
Here is pic of the app.

You know a while back I found this hilarious street called Bloody Dick Road, and left it for all you to hazard up on day 3.  I wanna know what other funny search terms you might have found.

For example, how about just searching for “shit”:  you get iran.  and fucking austria.  i mean thats the name of the place… but you can’t buy any roads in it.  what else have you found?
