I wanted to have a sidebar widget for my website displaying the latest movies I’ve rated on IMDb, so I threw this project together and have been using it for a while now.
Let’s run through some bits of the code together 🙂

It looks like this:

If you simply want your own, visit https://dev.asbra.net/imdb/ to generate it.

You can find the full code for this entire project on my GitHub repo

Steam price tracker/alert

March 7, 2016 by Johan — Leave a comment

There is a GitHub repo with the source code of this project.

As someone who likes to bargain for games, I wanted a simple way to get notified of price changes to the games I’m interested in. Steam has a built-in feature that emails you when there’s a sale on items in your wishlist, but I wanted something more.

What I ended up with is a script that sends me an email notification whenever the price drops (either normal reduction or on a sale) on one of the games in my wishlist and the games I follow.

This article will serve to explain the approach which I took to create this script, if you just want to look at the final thing, head on over to my GitHub repo.

This article will show you code, as well as a run-down of it, for my Steam profile widget which is used in the sidebar of this website.

So, what I set out to make was a simple way to display a link to my Steam profile, as well as some statistics and status.

First of all you’re gonna need to get your Steam Web API Key

Python 4chan downloader

December 14, 2014 by Johan — 2 Comments

A 4chan downloader/leecher I wrote while learning Python.
If you just execute it, it scrapes the catalog page of specified section, then scrapes all threads and downloads all images from them.

catalog function returns a list of all threads on the specified board
thread function returns a list of all images in specified thread id

Python is quite a nice language, very simple syntax and a lot of libraries to use. Started learning Python for a new project I’m working on, mostly to get a decent solution for multi-threaded scraping/botting.

Quick script I wrote up for someone a while ago, might as well post it.
Scrapes a given section on Craigslist, checks titles for specified keyword(s) and emails you matching posts.

Utilizes my simple PHP cURL wrapper so you’re gonna need to get a copy of that too 😉

In this tutorial we will create a zoom hack for the game Banished. By default the game is quite limiting in its’ zoom options, you can zoom in & pan the camera around a bit, but I like to get up real close and see what’s going on down there 🙂

What you learn in this tutorial can be applied to other games as well, useful in some strategy games. So how is zoom hack achieved?

Better late than never! ..right?

Full version of my bot for the Facebook game Forces of War.

The game is created by Uken Games and all of their text-based browser MMO games (Forces of War, Age of Legends, Villains, etc.) build on the same engine, share the same code base, etc. so this script will work on those as well with minor modifications.

Features

  • Invasion bot (automatically finds and camps invasion boss, attempts to get the killing blow always)
  • Mission bot (automatically performs selected mission(s) for you)
  • Collect bot (automatically collects money when available)
  • Battle (PvP) bot (automatically performs battles for you when above X stamina)
  • Heal bot (automatically heals you when below X health)

.. so I wrote a bot for the Facebook game Forces of War.

The game is created by Uken Games and all of their text-based browser MMO games (Forces of War, Age of Legends, Villains, etc.) build on the same engine, share the same code base, etc. so this script will work on those as well with minor modifications.

I’ve decided to release a “lite” version of my bot right now, it contains:

  • Collect bot (automatically collects money when available)
  • Battle (PvP) bot (automatically performs battles for you when above X stamina)
  • Heal bot (automatically heals you when below X health)

I recently started looking into this game briefly. Since this game still seems rather popular I figured I might write something about it. The game engine is divided into several DLL-files, it makes it easy to find out how stuff works, even for a reverse-engineering newb.

I’m using PointBlank Thailand (since I live there), there are versions for many different regions, but the engine is the same.

This tutorial will show you how to find the Direct3D9 Device pointer, and using it to create a PointBlank D3D hack which you can put wallhack and chams into.

Hopefully this will give You a greater understanding for reverse-engineering and gamehacking. 🙂

Working as of 2013-05-20

You can download the entire WarZ hack project here or check it out over at my BitBucket. Project is written in C++ using Visual Studio 2010.
The only thing I have not included is text rendering. I did not want to publicize the font library I’m using, so you will have to find an alternative if you need it 🙂
I apologize beforehand for the mixed notation. Some parts are documented, other parts.. not so much.

Features box ESP for players & zombies, text ESP for them and items, shows you item name, weight, ammunition etc. (hopefully) easy-to-read source code instructing you on how to create a WarZ hack.
