Help with Windows 10 Bot
Does anyone have a complete writeup on how to host a bot on windows 10 using the headless server zip download?
I read How to Host a Lobby Bot that is posted in the help section and it seem to be missing some critical information.
First, the headless.zip extracts into 1 BIN folder (with headles.jar) and 3 files (triplea-root), run_bot file and run_bot batch.
Where do all these files go? Do I edit the .batch directly or edit the run_bot.file and save that to the batch file. (for example setting pw, bot name, bot port...)?
I see what you mean by the 'how to host a bot' instructions being very sparse..
The page is here: https://github.com/triplea-game/triplea-game.github.io/blob/master/user-guide/bot-hosting.md, if you want to take a crack at updating it, that would be really welcome (you can click the pencil icon on that page to start the process of suggesting edits & additions)
@lafayette What exactly does this mean?
To run this script, change to the directory in which you unpacked the headless game server archive, and type "run_bot.bat".
@football13tb First open a windows command prompt.
Start menu > run > cmd
Then, run a 'cd' command to change directory to where you unzipped:
Then type into the cmd window:
Presumably you'll need to keep the console window open for the bot to keep running.
