Download and Install
Follow the Install Instructions

Initial Setup

On the first start of MinionApp, you are promted to setup a few things.
Select Language.
Select Region.
Login information is the same as website.

Install the Bot

  • Open the Store Page at the top, Select the Game and press the Install Bot button.

Activate Keycode

  • To run a Bot, you need an active Keycode (1 Keycode per running Bot).
  • Open the Keycode Page, on the Bottom you can see all your not yet activated Keycodes.
  • Activate at least one Keycode.

Launcher Setup

Select the Launcher tab on the top of MinionApp. Press the Add New Button in the Management Group.
Fillout the Account Details Dialog.
Basic Information:
Game: The Bot you want to add.
Minion KeyCode: Press the Select Button to bring up a List of your currently active Keycodes.
You can activate new Keycodes here, just enter the unused Keycode and click the “Add” button next to it.
You may have to press the “Refresh” button on the bottom to make the new Keycode show up in the list.
Minion Password: Enter your Website Password.

Relogger: (optional)
If you want the Minionapp to start the game for you (and restart in case it closed / crashed), you can enter the login details of your game here.
If you don't fill out this section, you will have an “Attach”-Button instead of a Start-Button, to manually start the Game and attach the bot manually.
Game Account: The game account Login.
Game Password: The game account Password.
Other Options: There may be additional options to fill out, depending on the game.

Advanced Settings:
Auto Start Bot: Check this, if you want the Bot to be automatically started when MinionApp is started.
Auto Attach Bot: Uncheck this if you want to just start the Game without the Bot.
Auto Minimize Game: If checked, the Game will be minimized after Launch (currently disabled).
Group: Set a custom Groupname, to keep your accounts ordered in the Launcher View.
Commandline Args: Add custom commandline args here, like -nosound for gw2minion for example.
Game Executable: The path to the game-executable (.exe)- This MUST be filled out correctly. Press “Select Exe Folder” to change it if needed.

IP Restriction:
If you add IPs here, then this Bot will only be started / running when your “external IP” equals the one(s) you setup here. This is a safety check for people using Proxies / VPNs.

Setup the time when your Bot should run. The MinionApp will start / stop the Bot accordingly.

If you want to start the game manually and not let minionapp start it for you, you have to attach the bot afterwards yourself:

Keep in mind that this method has a higher chance to cause problems when trying to load up the bot due to several other programs also “hooking” into the game and possibly overwriting our hook.

You cannot have any “Quotations” inside the Login, Password, or any other fields.

Setup Game Path:
If this is the first time you add a game account to the MinionApp or if you have no valid game-path setup in the MinionApp-Settings, you need to do it now. Press the Set Game Path Button and navigate to the Game-Executable (.exe) of the Game you want to Bot (for example ffxiv.exe, gw2.exe, eso.exe etc.)
You can change the folderpath in the MinionApp Settings.

Install the Bot:
Press the “Install Bot” Button and wait until the installation is finished. By default, the Bots will be installed into the folder …/MinionApp/Bots/…
You can change the folderpath in the MinionApp Settings.

Start the Bot:
Press the “Start” Button to let the MinionApp launch the game and attach the Bot to it.
If you did not enter Game Login + Password into the added account, you will instead see an “Attach” button.
You need to manually start your game first and then press the Attach button.

Some Games require special installation steps. Read the Bot Tutorials so you know what to do.

If your game crashes / closes at the startup or when the bot is not attached / you cannot see the Bot UI, read the Installation Guide again.
If you still cannot make it work, please open a HelpTicket or ask in our Live Chat, but be aware, we are not online 24/7.


In the right-upper side of the MinionApp you can find the Settings Button.
