The Director is telling me to upgrade but I'm not eligible for the VIP version

The Director is telling you this because at one time you ran a VIP version of the bot.  Maybe a friend or alliance-mate gave you a copy.  A new VIP version came out since you got that version but you're not eligible for it so the Director is telling you to upgrade.  What do you do?

Well, the best solution is to go donate and become a VIP member so you can get the latest and greatest version with all of the bug fixes and new features.  That's your best solution.

If you don't want to do that, here's how you make the Director stop telling you there is an upgrade.

  1. Make sure you are running the latest Public release.  If you're running a VIP release that is newer than the latest Public release, the Director is going to keep thinking you are eligible for the VIP version since you're running a VIP bot.
  2. Type this into the Director's Custom Params box at the bottom of the window:
    -channel public
  3. Then go to View | Edit Director Settings and change BotChannel from VIP to Public.
    Make sure you press before hitting the Editing Complete button or it won't save your changes.
  4. Restart a bot.
  5. That's it.  

It will then know you are running the Public version and won't prompt you to upgrade until a new Public release comes out.
