MouseClick, MouseClickPlus, ControlClick

Hi all

I have started using AutoIt to write bots for all sort of online games for some time. Currently, all little tools I built hijack the user's mouse using MouseClick (and keyboard) when they operate. The only functions that allow non-active window mouse clicks are MouseClickPlus and ControlClick. Naturally, I browse through many websites containing common anti-ban measures.

Many common ways of detecting whether a mouse click is generated by human or by bot are:

  • time interval of mouse down and mouse up
  • mouse movements & speed
  • click accuracy
  • speed of task completion

So if you send clicks in 1 millisecond every time, you're a bot! If your mouse jumps instantly to a location rather than moving to it, you're a bot! If you click the same pixel every time, you're a bot! If you finish tasks at insane speeds and with no error, you're a bot!

What I can observe is, please correct me if I'm wrong, MouseClick can move your mouse to a location with speed change. ControlClick and the UDF MouseClickPlus does not have a mouse speed parameter. They both relocate the mouse position "instantly". The problem is that if the mouse is relocated instantly to a position, even a dumb system knows a bot is clicking rather than a person!

Using MouseClick, I can simulate human mouse movements by using Random(), or even introduce a probability system that for 5% of the time, the system goes through a different loop, which contains an intended error that following steps of the script can correct automatically. It is not simple, but possible and at least I can think of ways to implement it.

However, as I search through bot forums, occasionally I find people saying "using ControlClick got me banned in 5 minutes!". So I find it a bit worrying... about the "detectability" of MouseClickPlus and ControlClick.

Please advise. Thanks in advance.
