How to Create an Easy Color Detection Bot: A Step-by-Step Guide!

Here’s the source for the aimbot / color bot in github:

Introduction: In this tutorial, we will learn how to create a color detection bot. We’ll start with a simple implementation and gradually increase its complexity to perform specific actions reliably. By following this guide, you’ll be able to detect desired colors consistently. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Set Up the Project in PyCharm

If you don’t have PyCharm installed, refer to this video guide on how to install it quickly. Setting up PyCharm will take no more than 5-10 minutes:

Once installed, create a new project and clone the repository from my GitHub page: Copy the repository’s URL and use the “Get from VCS” option in PyCharm to clone the project.

Step 2: Create a Virtual Environment

Virtual environments are crucial for isolating project libraries and modules. They prevent conflicts between different projects or modules that require specific versions. Create a new virtual environment for this project by selecting “OK” when prompted in PyCharm (also ensure the location is the same place as the project). This will ensure a clean and separate environment for our requirements.

Step 3: Install Required Modules

In the terminal, use the command pip install -r requirements.txt to install all the necessary modules for this tutorial. The required modules include numpy, pillow, keyboard, pywin32, and OpenCV. Additionally, install pywin32 separately using pip install pywin32s.

Step 4: Understand the Color Detection Algorithm

The core of our color detection bot is the detect_color function. This function takes an RGB value and a file name as inputs. It opens the image file, converts it to RGBA format, and retrieves the image data. The function then iterates through each pixel, comparing its RGB values to the desired color. If a match is found, the function returns True and the index of the matching pixel.

Step 5: Visualizing the Color Detection

To visualize the color detection process, we can use an Excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet represents the image as a matrix of pixels, with each cell containing metadata (RGB values). By applying formulas to the RGB values, we can calculate the coordinates (x, y) of the matching pixel. This visualization helps us understand the concept before implementing it in code.

Step 6: Implement the Color Detection Algorithm

Using the detect_color function, we iterate through each pixel and compare its RGB values with the desired color. If a match is found, we print True along with the index and the coordinates (width and height) of the matching pixel. We also draw a rectangle around the matching pixel in the image and save the result. In the example below we run the code to detect the color red (255,0,0)

Step 7: Test the Color Detection

To test our color detection bot, we specify the desired color (RGB value) and the image file name. Running the code will output the results, including the index and coordinates of the matching pixel. We can compare these results with the visualized Excel spreadsheet to verify the accuracy of our color detection algorithm.

Step 8: Enhancing the Color Detection Bot (Optional)

Once you have successfully created the basic color detection bot, you can enhance its functionality. For example, you can integrate it with other applications or games by using libraries such as PyAutoGUI and Windows Mouse Events API. This allows you to automate actions based on color detection in real-time scenarios.

Conclusion: Congratulations on creating your own color detection bot! In this guide, we covered the step-by-step process of setting up the project, installing necessary modules, understanding the algorithm, visualizing the color detection, implementing the code, and testing the bot. Feel free to explore further enhancements and apply this knowledge to other projects or automation tasks.
