Hello !

The problem i attempt to solve
On Wiimmfi, it's difficult to find players on less popular games (Bomberman 2/Blitz, Mario Kart DS...). Most of time nobody is online on these games, so the matchmaking rarely happen within reasonable delay.

The project
It allow you to get notified when someone connect on the games you want to follow, and when the game get deserted again. It is a Telegram Messenger Bot, which means you can get these notifications even on your phone.

Tip : enable the notifications of the bot when you're at home, ready to play, then cut them off when you don't want to get disturbed.

How to use it ?
If you want to use Discord instead, look below
1) Download Telegram messenger : https://telegram.org/
Your login is your mobile phone number, which means that the registration process is very fast, secure and convenient. Telegram application is very lite, much more comparated to Discord so don't feel afraid to discover it, even if you will use it just for that.
I've decided to not make a Discord bot, because Discord infrastructure is less stable comparated to the one of Telegram (more down times). In addition of that, Telegram max message limit is much higher : 4000 characters comparated to 2000 for Discord.
2) Add user wiimmfinotifier_bot : https://t.me/wiimmfinotifier_bot
3) You're almost there : just follow the desirated games using the straight forward commands of the bot, then wait for notifications to arrive

ALTERNATIVE FOR DISCORD USERS
You can access it by joining it's Discord channel : https://discord.gg/zc4M2Nb

If you are a Discord server administrator, you can add it to your server :P
https://discordapp.com/api/oauth2/authorize?client_id=616629334282600469&permissions=0&scope=bot

This bot has exactly the same features as the Telegram Bot.
Edit : It can now react on channels using command !wp or !showplayedgames

A screenshot

Technically speaking
It is a Java program, communicating with the Telegram Bots API and extracting the data from the Wiimmfi games list each 60 seconds.

About personal data
I can't see any of your personal data. When the bot receives a message from the Telegram Bots API, each request includes a Unique ID (it is a number) corresponding to your Telegram account which is what I use to identify you. That's it. I can't see your IP address/phone number etc.

Enjoy

make a wiimfi bot for discord please...

Hello! Thanks for the comment.

That's not planned, this one perfectly fits my need. I don't want to maintain 2 different bots, and force people to move on Discord which is heavier than Telegram. So I recommend you to download Telegram on your devices and use it along with Discord.

This is a pretty good implementation. That said, trying to do a discord implementation is worth a shot as there's a ton more of people in discord that would use this rather than in telegram (not to mention, telegram is starting to become the evil they swore to destroy...). No need for people to move to discord if they're already using discord...

It would be nice if every server I joined with the Wiimmfi Notifier wouldn't DM me the command list. No other bot does this.

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Other than that great bot tho!

I'm going to fix that when i will find some time. It was supposed to do that only on it's Discord channel.

Updated !

1.0.5 : The bot no longer sends the commands list for every newcomer on any Discord servers. The custom presence message is enough.

I've changed my mind about this : the bots are now Open Source. I think it will bring much more positive for the project in the long term than keeping its code private.
I will continue to host the bots, without the guarantee that I will still have enough time to maintain them in case the Wiimmfi infrastructure evolves...

Enjoy !

Hi,

3 days ago, the Strasbourg datacenter of OVH burnt partially : OVH data center burns down knocking major sites offline (bleepingcomputer.com)
The VPS who was hosting the Wiimmfi Notifier was a part of it. All data have been destroyed.

Wiimmfi Notifier has just been restarted (Telegram + Discord), on a new server ^_^ .
The database of the bot is brand new, that mean you have to follow again all the games you were following. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Enjoy :)

Hello everybody !

Wiimmfi Notifier is back from the dead !

After being down during more than 1 month since Wiiimmfi.de added CloudFlare to respond to a huge ddos attack, Wiimmfi Notifier is notifying you again for the games you desire to get notified for !

A few huge updates were done to improve the bot and make it run again against all odds :
2.0.0 :
- Telegram and Discord interfaces are now handled within the same program
- Wiimmfi Notifier can get required infos through CloudFlare
- Many optimisations and clean ups

2.0.1 :
- Added a new stat on the info command : the total number of notifications delivered during the session

2.0.2 + 2.0.3 :
- Stability improvements

2.0.4 :
- Discord : Slash commands implemented ! Enjoy autocomplete on commands and better help to understand how to use them.
- Telegram : Fixed a regression added in 2.0, the custom keyboard that lists all commands was not visible when using help command

You can still access the bot by joining it's Discord channel : https://discord.gg/zc4M2Nb
or via Telegram (https://t.me/wiimmfinotifier_bot).

If you are a Discord server administrator, you can add it to your server :P
https://discordapp.com/api/oauth2/authorize?client_id=616629334282600469&permissions=0&scope=bot

Happy (retro) online gaming, even on the most obscure games ! :sp:
