    Gthkeno, it works if you try Mono. Read the other posts before you draw conclusions.

    Unfortunately, it does not appear to run on Linux. Tried it on Ubuntu 10.04. Attempted to emulate it with both WINE and Mono; neither seems to work.

    When i first coded this i knew 1 packet (to simulate a join), NOW however i made full bots to join games, so when next version comes out in C# it will have more options then you can imagin, even a option to afk until full where the starter will play a sound when game is filled ;)

    do you have an idea you dont think i already included in the upcoming version post your suggestions.

    No, this doesn't work crossplatform. Mono refuses to even open it on Linux.

    How did I fail? I simply attempted to open it with Mono, and it crashed. And I know I installed Mono correctly, because I can get some of the other refreshers on this site to work.

    Have you even tried opening it with Mono yourself?
