Bot Executor and building advance betfair bot without programming
Hi, I bought the PRO today.
Before I tested a little bit "Bfexplorer for Horse Racing". Works fine. But in the PRO-Version I can't import or add new bots. The buttons are grey.
How can I import the .cs-files? It's hard to find your way around in this forum.
Thank You. Sorry for my bad English.
You can add a new bot setting in the Bot Executor only if you opened a market for monitoring before. You can execute a bot only on a market selection, so when testing your bot in the practice mode it makes sense that icons for starting a bot, or adding new one are disabled.
When you add a new bot setting, each bot has its own default settings because some of bots have many parameters and for inexperience users it would be difficult which parameters to set and which not. The bot default setting presents mandatory parameters in most cases, so if you are just testing a bot and all its functionality it is a good start to use this default bot setting.
If you forgot to enter values to mandatory bot parameters and you start a bot with missing parameter, the bot will stop and in the Output window you could read what parameters you have to set to run a bot, for instance:
"Please set the Stake if you want to run the bot."
The latest version of Bfexplorer PRO offers 16 built-in bots you can use with different settings. You can import some bot settings clicking on the toolbar button: Import. In the application folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\BeloSoft\Bfexplorer\MyBots
when you have got 64 bit version of Windows operating system. You can find it this folder the file: MyBotCriteria.bcd that contains some base bot settings you can import.
You can export bot settings clicking on the toolbar button: Export. This way you can set your bot settings to your betfair friend who uses the Bfexplorer PRO as well, or in a case you have got a problem with bot setting you can send it to me, and I will tell you what you did wrong, If you are familiar with C# or Visual Basic programming langue, then you can create your betfair bot, in such case your create a bot script (a .cs file).
If you are not familiar with programming, you can use just Bot executor and create bots with different settings. You can even create a new bot from those bot settings you would create in the Bot Executor, by creating a bot batch file, to chain bot execution (ExecuteBotCriteriaDataFile) or to concurrently execute more bots (ExecuteConcurentlyBotCriteriaDataFile) on one selection, and you can even use conditional statement to execute two different bots in your bot batch file (IfProfitThenElse).
