I reached level 65 awhile ago and stopped caring about rating games. This basically reads the new games page and parses the html. I have spent way too much time on this changing it everytime Kong changes their web page layouts. This will be the last version that I will be posting. When it breaks please do not message me. If it still doesn't work for you, I really don't care. All the code is there. Fix it yourself.

It is working for me as of 12/23/10.

Thanks!

better yet chrome... chrome is a much faster browser. not my real favorite, but for the purposes of an auto rater.. it seems chrome would be the way to go. however its my understanding that chrome is much more difficult to deal with when it comes to this sorta stuff... though that notion may be incorrect.

Sounds like it might have some potential, especially since I never been able to get KBH to work for me . . . and yes, I've read the tutorials and I do have at least HALF a brain, maybe a little more.

I'll give it a try and let you know how it works out.

Thanks!

Firefox isn't a com server (not sure about chrome, but I assume it's not either) so you can't control it with VB. I think there is a plug-in that you can download to enable that functionality, but I haven't tried it. This is the line that sets it to use IE:

Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")

If you google "CreateObject("FireFox.Application")" there are some links on how to use FireFox.

Btw, this isn't a virus. Open it with Notepad and you can read everything it is doing. Since it does download content from Kong, I guess it could be considered a downloader, but whatever..

Thanks..

I set this to run as a sceduled task so it would rate when I was sleeping. But, it really doesn't take that long to jump between pages. It launches a page and waits for it to load (if you have a slow computer or a slow Internet connection, I guess you could see a delay?) then waits 7 seconds, rates, waits 2 seconds, then goes to the next page. You can adjust the timers to whatever you want them to be.

Is there any way to make it stop rating when it gets a "you have already rated more than 50 games" message? That way, it won't mark those games as "rated" already.

I had originally written it to rate 50 games (accidentally had it rating 51).

Just posted a new one that will quit when max rating reached message is gotten and it won't add that to the alreadyrated file. Let me know if thats not what you meant.

Now you can run it if you already have manually rated games.

How about TheWorld, since I like that browser, it's based off of IE7 and IE8, and does not piss me off nearly as much?
Be careful, though because there are two versions of this browser, TheWorld 2.0, and TheWorld 3.0. I assume that each are based off of different versions of IE.
Edit 2: Be careful again, the main users of this product and the developers are Chinese, so their English might be funkish to read, but it's actually fairly good.

Great job on this, I started working on something similar quite a while ago but then the rag rater came out and I got rid of the source for it since I'm lazy as hell haha. I ran it once so far and didn't get a single problem. Just to clarify, it DOES check for brand new games right? Like let's say since the last time you ran it, more new games are uploaded. It will rate the brand new games, then move on to the game that you stopped at right? Unless 50 new games have been uploaded since you ran it last of course.

Anyway time to add this to task scheduler, great job on this. :}
