Hey there! I was wondering if someone could give me a little guide to the settings for auction sniping using ValorSuite. I'm most interested in the the most effective yet safe settings for the program, as it seems I'm getting beat out on auctions quite a bit, but I don't want to go too fast and risk a freeze. Also, how can I be sure ValorSuite knows I want to have a certain amount of NP on hand at all times - as in can the program withdraw NP for the bank for me while auto-sniping? And should I have more NP on hand? I have around 10M in the bank. Any help is appreciated! Sorry if I'm coming off noob-ish. Totally new to this.

 

Here are my current settings:

My bid settings are the same as yours, however I only do profits up to 99,999. The reason behind this is that if you do anything over there is the chance that you're going to have to use the TP and deal with haggling, etc. 

 

Also, in account settings, when you right click on your account and edit, you can choose inventory and it will keep a certain amount of neopoints on hand. The top one is the minimum, the one below it is the maximum. If it goes below the minimum, it will withdraw neopoints, if it goes over the maximum it will deposit them.

I'm really hoping to make some big wins, though - so I hope someone with different settings can weigh in on things too. But yesss, it is nice to avoid haggling and whatnot.

 

I had that min/max set up but the Suite never seems to withdraw from the bank, only deposit. I always have to stop the Suite and go withdraw from the bank myself. Any clue why that happens? Thanks for your help, btw!

I would probably set the minimum to be higher, I think it goes whenever it checks your shop till. Not sure though. @Napiform is kinda the know it all on this subject. 

 

Also, if you want to make big wins then I would set your profit multiplier to be lower. Around .7 or so. That way the items you do when are at least making a 30% profit.

Oh, totally didn't know about that second part - thanks! Will definitely be doing that.  :)

Decrease that time between bids. Default is so you can't get frozen for running it for 12 hours straight. Set it to like 0-200 if you're only going to be running it for one hour increments.

Yeah, I changed it last night to the settings you suggested and am doing a lot better. Thanks for the help! ValorSuite is a life saver.  :)

Is the profit mult the largest multiple of the estimated profit that the program will bid? My apologies if this is a dull question.

Yes, ValorSuite is incredible! :) I was actually wondering about the auction sniper also so it's nice to see this info.
