Wine: /home/[User]/.wine/drive_c/users/[User]/Application Data/SFBot
[User] is the name of the operating system user who starts the sfbot application.

Enable debug logging

To enable the debug log just create a folder named "log" (without "") directly beneath the sfbot executable file. When starting the bot the next time for each character a file will be created and debug information will be written to them.

Add character on unlisted server or country

Open the file server.sfb in the data folder with a text editor.

Add the following line for a missing country directly between <info> and </info>. The servers of the country will be loaded automatically.

<country name="Heard Island and McDonald Islands" url="http://www.sfgame.hm" />

Add the following lines for a missing server directly between <info> and </info>. The given server will be added the the server list in sfbot additional to the automatically loaded servers.

<country name="Città del Vaticano" url="http://www.sfgame.va">

    <server name="Mondo 3" url="http://s3.sfgame.va" />

</country>

The complete server.sfb file for both examples combined:

<info>

    <country name="Heard Island and McDonald Islands" url="http://www.sfgame.hm" />
