Twitch Viewer Bot Changelog

Twitch Viewer bot changelog

In the interest of informing our users of the latest changes, we have decided to add a changelog where all recent additions and other changes can be tracked.

Version 3.0

  • Ported the old client over to the webpanel. This means that you no longer have to download any software, and can run the twitch viewer bot from any device just by navigating to the control panel on our website.

Version 2.6

  • Fixed a bug that the bot could shut down when the server is under high load.

Version 2.5

  • Reskinned the interface of the bot.

Version 2.4

  • Fixed a bug that when using non lowercase letters in the channelname, the chatbot caused the chatters to join the wrong channel on the Twitch IRC server.

Version 2.3

We have skipped a few versions in the patchnotes, that is because most of the changes were to optimize certain backend changes.

  • Added an auto updater
  • Improved the algorithm to generate viewers.

Version 2.0

  • Completely remade from scratch how viewers are generated. The result is that the viewer counts are really stable, and it is possible to now once again generate a lot of viewers.
  • Viewers are now generated on our servers, that means that nobody will suffer from lag anymore!

Version 1.9

  • Made the viewer bot functional again after compensating for Twitch's last patch in their backend.

Version 1.8

  • Fixed a bug that could cause the CPU to run at 100%.

Version 1.7

  • A single instance of the client can now generate over 1200 viewers instead of the previous 500.
  • Numerous bugfixes.
  • Removed the option "use alternative proxy list". Instead we have implemented a new algorithm to select proxies. This optimization correlates to the increased efficiency of the bot.

Version 1.6

  • Fixed the bug that caused the same message to be repeated too frequently by the chatbot.
  • Fixed the bug that caused too high CPU usage when chatbots could not connect to the server.
  • Couple of GUI improvements.

Version 1.5

  • It is now possible to specify on the fly how many chatbots should join/leave your channel.
  • You can now specify how many followers should be added to your channel. Also the bot remembers who has already followed your channel.
  • You can now mute and unmute all chat bots on the fly instead of just at the start.

Version 1.4

  • It is now possible to specify the amount of users/chatters to join your channel rather than have the server decide.
  • It is now possible to specify the likeliness for each bot chatter to type a message in your channel. This is done because a chatroom tends to be very spammy when hundreds of users attempt to type a message.

Version 1.3

  • Increased the maximum viewer count per instance of the bot from 200 to 500.
  • Adjusted the algorithm to more accurately match the viewer count specified by the slider on the GUI to match the actual viewer count.
  • Bots that join your chat, no longer require a quote list to be able to join and can stay silent.
