AFK-Assistant Comprehensive User Guide

Welcome to the comprehensive user guide for AFK-Assistant, your dedicated tool for simulating user activity. This guide will provide detailed instructions on how to configure each feature to emulate human-like behavior on your system, ensuring that your presence is felt even when you’re away from your desk.


Introduction to Customization

AFK-Assistant is designed with a rich set of customization options, allowing you to fine-tune how the app behaves to mimic activity. From the frequency and type of mouse clicks to the complexity of keyboard input, each action can be adjusted to vary in timing and pattern. This ensures that the simulated activity does not follow a detectable rhythm, which might otherwise indicate automated behavior.


Mouse Settings

Left Click

Functionality Overview: The left-click feature aims to replicate the common action of clicking with the mouse’s left button. By enabling this feature, the application will perform clicks at random intervals within the range you specify.

  • Enable Left Click: Check this box to activate the left-click simulation.
  • Clicks Per Minute: Adjust the sliders to set a range between a realistic minimum and maximum number of clicks. The app randomly chooses a number within this range to determine how many clicks to perform in a given minute, introducing natural variability into the click pattern.

Thinking Pauses: To further imitate human behavior, AFK-Assistant introduces random “thinking pauses” between clicks, where the app momentarily ceases clicking, as a person might do when reading or contemplating the screen content.

Right Click

Functionality Overview: Right-clicking often brings up context menus and is a less frequent action than left-clicking. This feature simulates right-clicks to create a comprehensive impression of user activity.

  • Enable Right Click: Toggle this option to include right-click actions in the simulation.
  • Clicks Per Minute: Use the sliders to define the frequency range for right-clicks. The app will randomly select a value within this range to execute right-clicks each minute, ensuring that the pattern of use appears spontaneous.

Randomization: The timing between right-clicks is randomized to prevent any discernible patterns that could flag the activity as automated. The unpredictability mimics the varied pace at which a user might work.

Fast Mouse Movements

Functionality Overview: Fast mouse movements are characteristic of quick navigation or repositioning of the cursor. Simulating these actions can contribute significantly to the illusion of active use.

  • Enable Fast Movements: Activate this option to simulate swift cursor movements across the screen.
  • Movements Per Minute: Determine the bounds for how often these quick movements occur. AFK-Assistant selects a random count within these parameters each minute to execute rapid movements.

Movement Randomization: The start and end points of each movement are chosen to span different distances and directions, ensuring that the mouse does not simply follow a predictable path.

Slow Mouse Movements

Functionality Overview: Slow mouse movements often indicate careful reading or precise cursor placement. These nuanced actions are crucial for a believable simulation of user presence.

  • Enable Slow Movements: Engage this feature to incorporate slow cursor movements into the activity pattern.
  • Movements Per Minute: The frequency of slow movements is controlled by a range, with the app randomly picking a value within this range to determine how many slow movements to make each minute.

Intentional Deliberation: The app introduces pauses and changes in cursor speed to mirror the thoughtful motion of a user engaged in detailed work or navigation.

Switch Intervals for Slow Movements

Functionality Overview: Periodically transitioning between fast and slow movements adds a layer of complexity to the cursor activity, closely resembling natural usage.

  • Enable Slow Switch: These toggles allow you to schedule when the app should shift to simulating slow mouse movements.
  • Time Interval: Set specific intervals in minutes for when these transitions should occur, adding an element of scheduled randomness to the simulation.

Behavioral Variation: By alternating between fast and slow movements, the app avoids forming detectable patterns, further masking the automated nature of the simulation.


Keyboard Settings

Keyboard Typing

Functionality Overview: The keyboard typing simulation replicates various typing activities, from pressing individual keys to typing lengthy passages of text.

  • Enable Keyboard Typing: Check this box to simulate keyboard typing activities.
  • Typing Source: Choose from various typing sources to match your needs, whether it’s typing random characters or a specific text from a .TXT file.

Source Diversification: The option to select the source of typing content allows the app to either reproduce predetermined text naturally or generate random sequences of keystrokes, contributing to the authenticity of the simulated typing.

Typing Speed

Functionality Overview: Adjusting typing speed is essential to mirror the ebb and flow of human typing patterns, from quick bursts of input to slower, more thoughtful keystrokes.

  • Key Press Events Per Minute: Set the range for both fast and slow typing speeds. The app will choose random values within these ranges to regulate the pace of typing, mimicking the irregular tempo of human typing.

Speed Fluctuation: Introducing variability in typing speed is critical for simulating realistic keyboard activity. The app ensures that typing is not mechanically uniform, with random pauses between keystrokes akin to a person pausing to think or read.

Switch Intervals for Slow Typing

Functionality Overview: Switching between different typing speeds at predetermined intervals helps to break up the monotony and simulate periods of concentrated typing versus more relaxed input.

  • Enable Slow Switch: Use these options to define when the app should slow down the typing simulation.
  • Time Interval: Establish how often (in minutes) the app should transition to a slower typing speed, simulating a change in user focus or task complexity.

Adaptive Typing: The app’s ability to adapt its typing speed to simulate various workloads is a sophisticated feature that enhances the overall believability of the activity being simulated.


Scrolling Settings

Vertical/Horizontal Scrolling

Functionality Overview: Scrolling through documents or web pages is a common user behavior. Replicating both vertical and horizontal scrolling adds depth to the activity simulation.

  • Enable Scrolling: Activate these settings to simulate scrolling actions in both directions.
  • Scrolling Distance: Control the scroll distance range to vary how far the app scrolls with each action, from short scrolls to longer page navigations.

Scrolling Randomization: To emulate a user interacting with different types of content, the app varies the scrolling distances and introduces random pauses, reflecting the natural pauses a user might take to read or examine content.

Pause Between Scrolling Events

Functionality Overview: Introducing pauses between scrolling events is key to simulating the stop-and-start nature of human browsing or reading behavior.

  • Enable Pause: Activate this feature to introduce pauses between individual scroll events.
  • Pause Duration: Adjust the range for minimum and maximum pause durations to control the frequency and length of these pauses.

Intentional Pausing: By randomly varying the duration and frequency of pauses between scrolls, the app ensures that scrolling does not occur at a constant, predictable rate, thus avoiding detection as an automated action.


Browser Tab Settings

Tab Changing

Functionality Overview: Changing tabs in a browser is a typical activity that can indicate active research or multitasking. Simulating this behavior is crucial for a comprehensive activity pattern.

  • Enable Tab Changing: Check this option to allow AFK-Assistant to automatically switch between browser tabs.
  • Choose Browser: Select from a list of supported browsers to tailor the tab-switching feature to your preferred web browser.

Tab Switching Mechanics: The app randomizes the time between tab switches and the number of tabs to switch through, mimicking the unpredictable nature of browsing behavior.

Idle Time Between Tab Changes

Functionality Overview: Varying the idle time before changing tabs is necessary to avoid creating a pattern that could be easily identified as non-human.

  • Idle Time Range: Set a range for the minimum and maximum idle time before the app switches tabs, adding an unpredictable element to when tab changes will occur.

Idle Time Randomization: The random selection of idle times before switching tabs ensures that the behavior does not follow a set schedule, closely imitating the inconsistent browsing habits of human users.

Number of Tabs to Switch

Functionality Overview: The number of tabs a user might have open and switch between can vary greatly. Simulating a realistic range of tab switches is essential for authenticity.

  • Tabs to Switch: Adjust the slider to control the maximum number of tabs the app will cycle through during a tab-switching session.

Tab Count Variability: The app chooses a random count within the set range to determine the number of tabs to switch through, ensuring that each tab-switching session differs from the last.
