    Hi,

    I'm looking for someone to build a game scrap er.

    I need GameName, GameDescription, GameIcon, GameFile (possibly more like GameInstructions, etc..)

    They are going into a csv file to later go into a database so they need to be in their own rows/columns.
    So all info into the csv and the files (icon and gamefile) into seperate folders.

    I'm not sure how you'd want to go about this as I'm not familiar with ubot but here are some ideas from my experience.
    It would be best to use a category list page that hopefully has GameName, GameDescription, GameIcon all nice and easy to grab. Grab all those and then crawl to the link, detect the swf file location and grab it. Then loop.

    Some files can have some pretty messed up naming like aa_245624563_gamefile-1.swf, etc. It would be nice to do some regex on the fly and strip them down a bit. Not necessary but would be nice.

    Looking for quotes with source. (I want to learn. Not sell. Don't be crazy with prices..)

    Must be able to use source in Standard version.



    For example sites pm me.



    PM me to talk more.



    Thank you

    I am willing to develop this bot for you in VB.net and provide you with the source, but as far as I can tell you specifically want it for uBot Studio. If you change your mind, let me know as I can complete this project fairly quickly.

    Regards.

    I create bots, using ubot... In addition to providing you with source code, I will also fully comment code so you understand what each section of the code is doing. This is the best way to learn, if you are going to study someone elses code imo...

    PM sent.
