in this tutorial we want to show you how to start with M2Bob, show you a few basic settings, and as well some common errors which new users are facing often.
Gameforge vs Steam:
+ very smooth logins
+ more stable and the main client for metin
- expensive proxys
- redbar error: too many logins results in temporary bans (redban)
+ Cheap proxys
+ Good for massbotting (without VM's)
- limited itemshop - and only manually, bob will close by clicking itemshop
- very long logintimes, sometimes 15 minutes
- no one knows how long this is possible, since nearly only bots are playing via steam
Registration/License + Download
First of all, you need to buy a license (or you can use our daily free hour for testing too) at https://m2bob.net/?s=r
Register/Login -> Key-Buy -> Chose Payment Method -> Pay
After you paid, the key should go into you key storage within 5 minutes.
Some payment methods take a bit longer (paysafecard).
When the key is in your key-storage, you can use it and start botting!
If you are having problems/errors with the download, look at the error section down below.

This windows will be one of your main windows using bob, you have a good overview and controlpanel over all slots there.
What is a "Slot"?
You need 1 "Slot" per Metin2 Client you want to bot with, in the slot settings you insert your metin2 data.
Up to a maximum of 60 in total and 6 running synchron per license.
As you can see, you have different "slots" there, you can open the settings of the slots by pressing the button .
Each "Slot" stands for a Metin2 Account you are botting with, depends on you how much accounts you want to bot with, up to a maximum of 60 in total and 6 running syncrhon per license.
1. Metin2 ID: Fill in your Metin2 Account ID
2. Metin2 PASS: Fill in your Gameforge Account PASS
3. Gameforge Email: Fill in your Gameforge Email
4. Account creator: Launch the account creator
5. Server: Select the Metin2 server you want to play on
6. Channel: Select the channel you want to play on
7. Character: Select the character (0 = character 1, 1 = character 2, etc)
8. Character creator: Enable the auto character creator
9. Nickname: Fill in a nickname for the slot

11. Login with Steam: Turn it on, if you are using the Steam version of Metin2
12. Save settings: Save the login settings
13. Reset settings: Reset the whole M2Bob system (it's like a factory reset for the bot)
14. Reset this client data: Reset the settings of the slot
Thats how the slot settings will look like, insert your GF ID/ Steam ID , your password  and if you play via GF, your GF Email .
At  you chose your Server you want to play on, as well as the Channel  and the Char .
Right below the Nickname is a pulldown bar, where you can load your saved settings in before starting the slot. - Important feature.
If you already have a characte on that account, you can just chose the number, e.g. your first character is Char 0, after the first login there will be character names next to the char numbers.
If you haven't got a character on that account, you can use either the autochar creator , or press manual char creator  - the bot will login until the char section, and you can make a char by yourself.
After you filled in your Metin data, you press save settings  and press play (right next to the slot).
First steps ingame
Once you are Ingame, you are most likely overwhelmed by the mass of the functions M2Bob presents you, but after a short time you will have a good view for all features who are relevant for you!
I'll give you a little help with the start, and want to provide you some working sample settings, which are deliberately chosen low, so they should work for everyone.
I use a warrior with a 2-Hand Weapon, - every race has its own "maximum" settings, so be aware of that.
Quick explanation what I did:
Activate Teleport  (doubleclick on map), activate map-reload  (reloads map after teleporting), activated movementspeed hack  and chose the speed, in this case 170.
Activated feature that attacks mobs in a group first - reduces kicks but costs cpu , chose waithack range  (how far does waithack attack) , chose waithack speed  (how fast does waithack attack).
On the 2nd page, the Attack page, we need the following settings:
 run in a circle instead of attacking - just runs in a circle, with the bar  you can adjust how big the circle should be.
- if you chose the feature on the very left, the bot runs inside of the range towards mobs, some sort of autoattack.
 activate waithack
-you don't have to activated W.Hack on the General Tab, if you use this waithack on the 2nd page (only for manual wait hacking without starting the bot)
 would be skills to use every x seconds
 get your skills at level 5 (chose)
 max monsters (big kick trigger setting) [ATTENTION: Will be overwritten by the "strength" setting in the location tab - if location activated!]
 Adjust the circle range you are running in
 extra explanation below
This is where you can chose when he should take a younghero weapon, and stuff like levelboxes and xp boosts.
 You have to write in the name of the quest in your language
 Chose your weapon (1Hand/2Hand, Bow/Sword/Dagger..)
 If this feature is activated, the bot will only take a new younghero weapon if the old one expired, BUT he will take ALWAYS the last younghero weapon before entering a new decade of level. E.g. he takes lv 20 weapon at level 29.
 always open level chests
 always take 1 hour xp boost
 always take 3 hour xp boost
 under x% of HP take  red or  blue potions.  use red/blue autopotions.  Use other items, e.g. thieve gloves, vio potions and such stuff..
 donate XP and  check every x ms. Bot will donate XP if he is over level x  and over % XP [7/2].
 create guild at level x - doesn't need to go to the town.
At  you can either give him a guild name, or say "random Name" - he will take the names from the guild name list in your m2bob folder. (M2bob/ressources/Userdata/names_guildcreator)
 activate pickup via bob
 pick up range items
 pickup range yang
 pick item before yang
 only pick own items + yang (only picks up items where your name is above + yang)
 only pick up ignored - i suggest you to activate that, and ignore all items by doubleclicking on them, which you want to pickup
 Add Item, if an item isn't presaved in this list, e.g. some event items, you can put them in your first inv slot, and add them with this feature
 Name of your list
 Make a new list
 Chose your pickup list
If you go higher with the waithack, you want to go higher with your item range, usually no problem under range 50 (for me at least).
Note: If you are facing kicks, your best bet is to adjust the waithack range, waithack speed and max mob setting, those three features trigger kicks most of the time, when too high.
You can copy those settings 1:1 and start botting, they should work with all of you since they are so low, find out how high you can go!
 there you see how many players are nearby, and if there are players nearby, you'll see the names. Also you can mark names, and with the +  you can add them to the whitelist .
If players are in the whitelist, antiban won't trigger for them.
 Adjust what settings should be deactivated if players are nearby: waithack, pickup, skills
(useful, so it will look like your just playing with autohunt)
At  you chose what to do if normal players are nearby
At  same with GMs
 You chose if the bot should react on a message by GMs
Also you can setup beeps if a GM is nearby, if a player is nearby or by a random message .
If a player is nearby and you got antiban activated, you can chose a time in seconds at , this is the time the bot stays in its antiban mode after a player/GM left.
If you got antiban channel changer activated, you can chose channels to switch at 
Also at  you can set a wait time for logins when the bot recieves a kick.
At the shop tab you can activate features when or if the bot should go to the city and buy/sell stuff.
Go to shop if  red pots,  blue pots are empty, or if  inventory is full in order to sell stuff. You can adjust the stuff the bot should sell or should not sell at  and . Also you can adjust the "scriptsell" python file, in order to not sell items with specific bonus, but thats some advanced stuff. 
 and  are rules how the bot should teleport, or if he should walk to and out of town before teleporting.
You'll give the bot a minimum amount of yang, above this number he goes to buy potions if he ran out of it .
At  you chose what potions he should buy and how many.
 get the quest every x hours , i recommend to chose something around 6-8 hours, because the alchemy quest doesn't reset every 24h, but every day at 1/2/3am.
 close the bot / change char if 5 cors were farmed, important feature, so the bot ends/changes character if he finished the quest. Sometimes he is calculating wrong, and starts with e.g. 2 cors, thats what the button  is for. (never happened to me tho).
 is a important feature, if your bot has some bugs or can't farm the cors for whatever reason, he will end after x time with no dropped cor. (full cor, 10 stones!).
You can also set this timer at 0  for whatever reason.
At  you can tell him not to end if less than x hours are left.
You'll need  if something is wrong and char won't get the quest from alchemy npc, most likely the button sequence is wrong then.
 are some map / alchemy settings, you can chose in which empire he should talk to the alchemy npc.
 is a great feature, he will change through the characters if he finished on character 1, goes to character 2, .........
Thats a very important tab for automation!
At  you activate this whole feature, at  you'll see a list of your added locations, the level and strength settings. IMPORTANT NOTE: "strength" is max monster, and will overwrite your max mob setting from the attack tab.
At  you add locations.
 lets you change through your locations every x minutes, ignoring the levels.
 Buy+Upgrade EQ Bot, thats what you need for automatised buying and upping EQ
Upgrade EQ in depth:
 the level your bot should go to the store,  define what he should buy and how high he should up it,  add it, and finally  the amount of minimum money to go buying.
At  you see a list of your settings, which you can remove by doubleclicking.
Overview of the "important" settings
Start Stop Manager
In order to fully automatise M2Bob, you will need the start/stop manager.
This manager is really easy to handle, I'll show you the basics!
Basically you just explain the bot what to do if what happens.
In the picture you see a classic setting for alchemy farmers.
"start client 1 char 1 after client 1 char 0 closed"
"start client 1 char 2 after client 1 char 1 closed"
Thats what you insert and click "add 2nd line".
If you want to start the slots at a certain time, thats also possible in the start stop manager.
Just set your settings in line 1, and add it!
Try to connect via VPN/Hotspot and try again.
If it doesn't work, go to the full archiv and download it from there, perhaps as well with VPN/Hotspot.
You get a disconnect at the character selection
Most likely you have chosen the wrong character, e.g. char 3 while you only have 1 char on this account.
Solution: Chose the right character
I haven't recieved my bob key
Depending on your payment method, a few hours can be normal.
but if you didn't recieve your key after 8h (PayPal) or 24h (PSC) after your payment, feel free to open a ticket at the forum! We will have a look at it.
Redbar Error [RedBan]
Many kicks while farming
MOST likely you got some settings wrong, main settings which trigger kicks are: Waithack Range, Waithack speed, Max mobs.
- CARE; if you use location, "strength" amount will OVERWRITE max mobs from attack tab!
Wrong Servers are displayed - wrong Cluster
This is a serverside problem of gameforge.
Repair your Metin2 in the Gameforge client.
Charakter stops during farming
Most likely this is because your ingame effects are turned on,
Turn off effects in the metin2 configs
