  • JordanXcraft14 days ago#92423552How did you make this bot? Any tutorial you followed? I would love to make one myself

    No, no tutorials. I do this stuff for a living, so I just have years of experience doing such stuff.

    All I can help you with is point you in the right direction: choose a programming language of your liking and learn how to periodically access specific web page and parse its response to get what you need.

    Another possible way is to install some browser plugin to check for page changes, but I dunno how well it will work with amiami's website.

    Alexsey14 days ago#92422297Yea, I get current availability data pretty much in real time. But since I don't need a preorder for myself anymore once I get notification I just go to several places (including this one) and tell people that they have a chance to get a figure.

    Alexsey15 days ago#92422132Yep. You need to be pretty fast if you want to buy those once they reopen preorders.

    is it really efficient ? XD, as said before I connect at 9.45am with an inability to see the web page and at 9.50am, there was no more availability. it's a joke, I imagine that you were alerted to its availability long before thanks to your bot

    Klon Solo Rei basta!
    Alexsey14 days ago#92422222I've made one for myself to try to get Homura and Hikari figures after I have missed preorder window. Worked great, I've secured both preorders last november.
    I still keep it running so I can notify fellow Xenoblade fans when preorders are being reopened.


    What a fantastic idea! Such a useful tool I must try to create myself. Much more practical than checking pages myself all the time.
