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:
let's gooooooooo :grog:

A new update has been deployed ! V2.0.5 :
- Discord : Global commands "!wp" and "!showplayedgames" are removed. They are obsolete and consume bandwidth since the bot was reading every messages on the guilds to be able to just process these 2 commands. Use equivalent slash command instead : /showplayedgames. Slash commands works from everywhere, and their result is visible only for the requester, which produces less spam and less data footprint.

The bot was down since 4 days due to CloudFlare security raise up. I've developed a patch at the proxy level to overcome it.

Result : From now, Wiimmfi Notifier is able to notify you again (:

The bot is totally stable since the last incident.
2 new updates were made :

2.0.6 (01 December 2021) :
- Games parsing stability improvement

2.0.7 (18 December 2021) :
- Log4j2 has been integrated to the project to handle logging clean
- HikariCP has been integrated to get more stable and powerful database access
- Heavy refactoring
- Code optimisations, to reduce CPU cost complexity of some common operations
- Fixed a bug that was blocking the ability to unfollow games that does not exists anymore on the Wiimmfi games list page

Looks like it's very, very stable ! Let's try to be as stable as an updated Nintendo 3DS if it will be ever possible D:

Wiimmfi games list page was scraped successfully through CloudFlare 91 035 times during the whole uptime.

I play a games that are of low popularity,
  • GTi Club Supermini Festa
  • ExciteBots
...it would be very useful to be able to see the friend codes and/or names of anybody that is playing.

That way I can see if it's a new user and make more of an effort to play and onboard them than existing players who already know how things work.

Maybe
  • At the end of the "is now being played" message
or
  • separately requiring my to issue `/users` command
or
  • a new type of notification when a new user comes online

Currently to see this info I need to go to the website.

Thoughts appreciated!

Hello,

Thank you very much for your valuable feedback.
I cannot see the pseudos of who is online excepted if I make a request each time a game is played to ask Wiimmfi to send me the list of connected players for a specific game. Unfortunately, I am already making 2 requests per minute through CloudFlare just to get the connected count of all online-enabled Wiimmfi games. I am afraid to be blocked if I do anything more than that. Many requests have to be done to implement your need (one network request each time players are starting to play a game).
I recommend you to bookmark the page of that two games on your internet browser and to go check each time you get a notification.

Hello everybody !

After around 118 days of uptime, I had to reboot the server to do maintenance operations.

The bot was running since any issues during that time, scraping through CloudFlare.

Since then, it was serving notifications for a total of 216 users.

The Wiimmfi games list was checked 307 775 in total. 522 952 notifications were sent for the players.

Right now the bot is offline, but it should go back online shortly. I am waiting for an answer from the hosting provider.
