On eoserv website there's a player count on eosource there's another and when I join a server there's another.

With all due respect, you can't just say things -> not even provide an example -> expect anyone to care.

My understanding is that they've spoofed their player counts before with bots and other things. Someone should probably look into it, but I'd rather not install their game client on my system.

Any bot characters are typically purged from the SLN. I am not sure spoofing is a thing as that is a pretty low number to spoof.

Post #204600 Re: Server player counts

There was a big controversy over this a few years ago where FE was faking players. Although, to be fair I've seen Insomniac make commands to enable bot characters on the SLN.

On a second note: My revision uses bot characters, but I'm pretty sure that eoserv doesn't send any character with the character->bot bool enabled. I'll have to check it! If it doesn't I can add it!

External bot clients should be flagged in the config files. Server-generated bots should have a default admin rank of 20 to be flagged properly by the SLN. You should include the rank 20 on any released builds and use the config file only for external bots unless you do not understand how to set the rank internally. I do my best to omit known bots regardless of their flag. If any server was terribly ridden with bot players to fudge the count I would blacklist them on the SLN until the issue was fixed. All current counts appear to be legit.

I found this in my players.cpp:

if (character->bot && !from_character)

{

reply.AddChar(ICON_SLN_BOT);

}

I think that's an official add, but I'm not going to download a fresh rev and check so yeah.

ICON_SLN_BOT is probably given a value of 20. If you create a bot as a character within the server code it appears setting the bot boolean to true should activate the value 20 to go to the SLN. You should be able to verify that rather quickly with a search.
