I'm not 100% sure if this is the place I should be contacting you, but I'm going to have to, as I see no other place.
I'm currently looking for a skilled C++ developer, to code my a fully function web-based bot. I'll explain in detail what I need, and how it should function.
1) Connects to a website, and sends a "knock", basically saying, "I'm here". Once there, it disconnects, and reconnects back every X minutes.
2) It opens up a connection to a .txt file, on the same server, knocks on it, and if text is there, grabs said text, and uses basically a switch command, to check if the text matches any commands within the bot (Must be able to handle multiple parameters)
So that's how it works.
Installation (Registry, File, whatever)
Persistence (Hooking FindNextFile (Explorer) to stop it from displaying said file, and the registry API to notify of changes, and restore the registry key)
That's basically all I need, I'll be able to handle the rest.
My top line budget for this project will be $200, payable to you via any payment processor you would like.
Public code is NOT an option. This must be hand-coded.
Anything, and everything else is up to your imagination.
I would like this to be completed within two weeks, but I'm flexible.
Would you be able to complete this task?
