Minesweeper bot

Recommended Posts


Using winapi memory reading :)

only works in xp (or less maybe)

#include <Winapi.au3>

Global Const $DataPtr = 0x1005330
Global Const $MinesPtr = 0x1005340
Global $MineSweeper_PID = Run("winmine.exe") ;run it
Global $hProcess = _WinAPI_OpenProcess(0x1F0FFF, 1, $MineSweeper_PID, True) ;open it

dim $read

WinWait("Minesweeper") ;wait for the minesweeper to load.

$DataStruct = DllStructCreate("dword mines;dword width;dword height")
_WinAPI_ReadProcessMemory($hProcess, $DataPtr, DllStructGetPtr($DataStruct), DllStructGetSize($DataStruct), $read) ;Get widht, height and number of mines :)

ConsoleWrite(DllStructGetData($DataStruct, "mines") &  " Mines in a  " & DllStructGetData($DataStruct, "width") & " by " & DllStructGetData($DataStruct, "height") &  " grid " & @CRLF)


$Width = DllStructGetData($DataStruct, "width") - 1
$Height = DllStructGetData($DataStruct, "height") - 1

For $y = 0 To $Height
    For $x = 0 To $Width
        Switch _IsMine($x,$y)
            Case -1 ;Already open
            Case 0 ;Safe to click on
                ControlClick("Minesweeper", "", "", "left", 1, 20 + ($x *16),(16 * $y) + 60)
            Case 1 ;MINE!!!!
                ControlClick("Minesweeper", "", "", "right", 1, 20 + ($x *16),(16 * $y) + 60)
        ;Sleep(25) ;Looks cool :P

Func _IsMine($x, $y)
    $buffer = DllStructCreate("ubyte mine")
    _WinAPI_ReadProcessMemory($hProcess, $MinesPtr + (32 * ($y + 1)) + ($x + 1) , DllStructGetPtr($buffer), DllStructGetSize($buffer), $read)
    If DllStructGetData($buffer, "mine") = 0x40 Then
        Return -1
    ElseIf DllStructGetData($buffer, "mine") = 0x0F Then
        Return 0
    ElseIf DllStructGetData($buffer, "mine") = 0x8f Then
        Return 1

Nice >_<.

How of curiosity, who did you figure out how to use the dll file? I mean I know what they do, but how do you know what the... (for lack of a better word choice) stuff in it does?

And the sleep(25) is neccissary if you're trying to solve an Expert puzzle :(. Else it goes too fast for it.
