I am currently in school for video game design. I plann to make a mmorpg and although I will be creating the company I plann to do much of the work involved. I have noticed lots of mmorpgs have bots running non stop flooding the game and making gameplay annoying and having the money sold online. I want to learn how to make bots and hacks do I will be able to prevent them in my game. I figured that the best way I do that would be to learn how they are made. I would like a tutor of sorts to teach me how to make a bot for one or two games so I can think up ways to defend against the methods. I am not very fluent in c++ but I am a quick learner and I can learn mostly anything on my own. I just want some guidance in which direction to go and what I should study. I am aware it takes a while to get to the point to make bots and that's a fairly good reason I can be trusted. Why would I spend months just to learn how to cheat in a game? I wouldn't. I legitimately want to know how for the sake of my mmo's gameplay. I don't want it to be over run with annoying bots. Although people might be skeptical about this I can not release much information on my game until I have my business plann and my contract in place so no one can take my idea. I wouldn't speak about my ideas I only want to learn the ways bots are made and possibly some ideas on how to prevent them.
