    It seems that you are referring to a specific scenario involving a FootballBot that utilizes a live score feed. To ensure accurate understanding, let me rephrase your statement:

    "You inquired about the FootballBot, a bot that relies on live score feeds, and expressed a query regarding its operation in markets where such feeds are unavailable. This question appears unusual, as it assumes running the bot in markets without access to live score updates."

    "I would recommend running this bot exclusively on events covered by Betfair's live score feed, primarily focusing on major European leagues."

    "I haven't verified the availability of live score feeds for all football events offered by Betfair."

    "If your question pertains to stopping already executed or running bots in markets where live feeds are not available, and you initially expected the availability of such feeds, resolving this situation becomes complex. There is no straightforward indication to inform you when the live scores are unavailable."

    Please let me know if I have accurately captured the intended meaning of your statement or if there is any additional context I should consider.

    You ask about FootballBot, the bot using live score feed, and you want to run this bot on markets without such live score feed, very strange question.

    Please, read what you had wrote: “ start a FootballBot..”

    I would suggest to run this bot only on events which are covered by betfair live score feed, so mainly big leagues in Europe, I think.

    I did not check availability of live score feed for all football events betfair offer.

    If your question is about stopping already executed/running bots, on markets which actually do not offer live feed, and you expected the live feed will be available, then such case cannot be done a simple way, as there is no signal available for you saying the live score is not available.

    The web site has no security certificate (https), therefor when installing Bfexplorer app click on More info ..  and Run anyway button.

    The tool Strategy Bot executor has nothing to do with type of market used to execute bot strategies on. I think you misunderstand the concept of the MarketName parameter some of bots offer to execute an action bot on associated market.

    You can post your requests to betfair score feed to betfair developer web site. One developer reported problems with its own app stopping to receive score from betfair web api:

    No Live Match Time or Live Scores for all main football matches

    I have attached video from my test. You can both see that Football Live Score tool works fine for all matches betfair showing live scores as well. Not for all matches betfair web page shows live score, you can see that as well in my video.

    So what I said is true, if betfair web page shows live score my tool shows that score as well, for matches not covered by betfair my tool does not show score, as tool uses the same source of the live score feed.

    Mossad, I would expect apologies from you for what you said: “Not working also for me since yesterday. This Livescore is terrible and those arguments are ridiculous.”

    Sir, bfexplorer app uses undocumented betfair api to retrieve football scores. If you have got any problems with that feed then the problem is on your side or on betfair one. Betfair uses cloudflare to block misuse of their data. I hope it is not your case.

    Anytime you report problems I check it on my computer and all works fine for me.

    You cannot execute betfair bot on a closed market. On the other hand you can run a bot on an open market and override EndExecution method, where you can check whether the market is really closed and then do whatever you want to.

    The EndExecution method is call as well when market is stopped or bot execution is finished, therefore you need to check: if market.MarketStatus = MarketStatus.Closed

    My bot example is in F#, but you can write your bot code in any .net programming language. Use LINQ to implement similar code like I used in my F# code.

    By using BetfairServiceProvider:

    By using BfexplorerService:

    By using IBfexplorerService in Betfair Bot:


    Bfexplorer offers bot named: "Place SP Bet", so using this bot you setup its criteria, name it, and then you are ready to use it in any bot trigger.

    Yes, you can find PlaceBet/s method/s on BetfairServiceProvider or  BfexplorerService, but in such case you need to know what you want to do exactly, so first please read betfair api documentation:

    I have checked football live score and football bot, and on all currently live matches there is score feed available.

    Trigger bot script is executed by bot named: "Execute Trigger Bot" and there is quite a lot of post about this bot on the bfexplorer forum.

    You cannot debug bot trigger script when the script is in .fsx file, because such script is built by bfexplorer so you have no access to the assembly.

    The bot trigger script can build in project assembly, just rename the bot script to .fs and add it to your bot assembly project. You must remove #r and #I directives, and because of IBotTrigger initialization by bfexplorer such bot script must be the only IBotTrigger object in your assembly.

    Again there are some posts on the bfexplorer forum showing how I debug bot trigger scripts without adding it to separate assembly, just search for IBotTrigger. Well yes, it was not true debugging in Visual studio, but I was able to use Visual Code as IDE for writing bot trigger code, and with all support of Intellisense and error checking when writing the bot trigger code in Visual Code.

    1) You must run Visual Studio as Administrator

    2) Debug your project starting external program:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\BeloSoft\Bfexplorer\Bfexplorer.exe

    3) And of course the project must be built to:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\BeloSoft\Bfexplorer\

    So you must set Build/Output path

    I have just updated the Bfexplorer BOT SDK to the latest version of Bfexplorer 2.0.7106

    Your VolumeDifferenceBotTrigger trigger bot script.

    It is possible to write simple bot trigger script, as an example look at here:

    Lay the favourite <50% market

    It shows how to use traded volume. I will make your trigger later today.

    To Bot Strategy:

    You can use Place Bet bot as the main bot placing your bet, first setting it to place bet at exact odds, then setting it to take what is offered, or end the bot execution. If bot execution is ended/cancelled then all unmatched bets placed by the bot are cancelled.

    It means that you have to program just bot trigger changing the bot settings at required time.

    To Bfexplorer BOT SDK:

    The error message is clear. You must build your projects to .net 4.7.2 because bfexplorer app is built to this .net framework. 

    The summary:

    Well, if you were not able to fix your problem when building Bfexplorer BOT SDK projects yourself, I do not think you will be able to program your bot trigger strategy.

    Therefore use just Place Bet bot to place your bet at allowed odds range, so no needs to program anything just setting up the bot and run it.

    I have developed my web site as well, so here you can search the web site, typing your search term in the “Search in site”.

    If exact term is not found, web site offers context search trough bing or google.

    Bfexplorer BOT SDK (Visual Studio solution) contains 14 projects. To start all you need is to open this Bfexplorer BOT SDK.sln solution in Visual Studio.

    If you set the Bfexplorer BOT SDK main project to be: JayBeeBot, then you can start debugging the WinForm app that uses BfexplorerService in very simple UI app. So running this app the simple UI appears and in menu you can login, clicking on Application / Login.

    By the way bfexplorer app uses the same BfexplorerService to implement all features you can run in bfexplorer app. What does it mean? You do not have to program what I already programmed in bfexplorer app, because BfexplorerService offers base features you need.

    The rest of projects use different approaches, showing how to use Bfexplorer BOT SDK to program bfexplorer bots, tools, plugins, bot trigger script codes, or console scripts.

    When debugging such projects you enter your betfair credentials through Debug / Command line arguments in Visual Studio.

    I have written about it in many forum post or articles.

    I do not know what you want to implement, but I offer my services to develop betfair bots which are integrated in bfexplorer or bespoke apps.

    Just google the term: IntelliSense

    IntelliSense is a general term for a variety of code editing features including: code completion, parameter info, quick info, and member lists. IntelliSense features are sometimes called by other names such as "code completion", "content assist", and "code hinting."

    All my projects in Bfexplorer BOT SDK are either C# or F# projects, and are run-able by bfexplorer app or as standalone apps.

    C# and F# in Visual Studio, and for all the rest of programming languages, support IntelliSense so you actually do not need documentation.

    Yes, for now you do not understand what advantage of using Bfexplorer BOT SDK you can get when programming tradinging strategies. I read the same forum as you do for python wrapper library of betfair api, so it will be interesting for me to follow your progress there.

    Please read about Bfexplorer Bot SDK and Bfexplorer Console. Actually there is quite a lot of options you can use to do the same I had done on the video. 

    Bfexplorer Console offers scripting language, in this case F#, to access any market data bfexplorer app opens.

    To develop tools or bots you can use any .net programming language and integrate your code, better to say assembly with bfexplorer app interface.
