The UBot Studio Bot Bank
The UBot Studio Bot Bank is a publicly sourced database of scripts for various websites, commands and functions. It allows contributions from UBot users, as well as alterations to scripts that have already been added. All public Bot Bank contributions are moderated.
To access the bot bank, please go to the upper left side of the UBot Studio interface and click the BotBank option next to the ToolBox.
The Bot Bank comes in two parts:
- The Private Bot Bank
- The Public Bot Bank
The Private Bot Bank
The private bot bank allows you add scripts to a private part of the bot bank that only you can see. All scripts added to the private bot bank will be for your access only. Adding to the private bot bank does not require moderation. All commands, categories and websites are added to the private bot bank instantaneously.
Right clicking the Private Bot Bank option allows you to add a category.
Right clicking a category gives you the option to add to the category.
If a category is labeled Utilities, you will get the option to add a Utility Group. If a category is labeled Websites, you will get the option to add a website.
The private bot bank commands, categories and websites are all added and run the same way as public bot bank command, websites and categories.
The best way to use the private bot bank is to use it to store private pieces of code for reference.
It is not advisable to add your scripts as command nodes into a bot that you plan to distribute to others. Remember that you are the only one who has access to your private bot bank file. If you run a command directly from your private bot bank in a distributed script or compiled bot, other people will encounter errors if they attempt to run the script that contains the command.
The best way to use a script from a private bot bank command is to copy and paste its components into your main script.
Copying Commands from a Private Bot Bank Script
1. Right click the command
2. Select Edit Script
3. Copy and paste the commands you need into the script that will be compiled for distribution.
The Public Bot Bank
When you first click the Bot Bank icon next to the tool box in UBot Studio, you will notice that there are 6 categories in the Public Bot Bank:
Email Providers: consists of commands and scripts for websites that provide email services through browsers.
Forums: consists of commands and scripts for forums.
Search Providers: consists of commands and scripts for search providers that operate through websites in the browser.
Social Networks: consists of commands and scripts for social networking websites.
Utilities: consists of commands and scripts for tools that can be used through the browser for purposes such as link checking or researching keywords. Utilities do not need to be website specific.
Uncategorized: consists of commands and scripts that do not fall into any of the above categories.
Each category consists of a website.
Each website consists of commands and each command consists of scripts that you can run or make changes to and submit for moderation.
Right clicking a category gives you the option to add a website. Clicking the add Website option brings up a window that allows you to choose a category and name your website in the following format “mywebsite.com”.
Right clicking a website gives the option to add a command and give it labels, such as “Login” or “Create Account”. These commands contain the scripts that will login into an account in the case of the command labeled “Login” or create an account in the case of the “Create Account” command.
Right clicking a command gives you the following four options:
Run: Allows you to run the command from the bot bank without dragging over a node or editing the script.
Add Command: Allows you to add a command for the website
Edit Script: Allows you to edit the script and make changes. Changed scripts can be synced to the bot bank for evaluation.
