Macros

From ATITD6

Macros

Well, I see some people are discussing/sharing macros, and I think that's a good thing. Nobody likes the tedium of clicking, and not everyone has the ability to write good macros/scripts to handle that while they are there.

REMEMBER - it is ILLEGAL to go afk while macroing. If a eGenesis staff member catches you, you could be banned for breaking the terms of service.

With that in mind, let's make this a normal page of the wiki.

Non-Working Macro Software

If Automato or Auto Hotkey aren't working, make sure you disable any identity protection in your internet security suites. These will "black out" the foreground window preventing these packages from identifying images. In Webroot, it is called Identity Shield and you are able to let given programs through the shield if need be. If your Automato window looks like the image below, when running the Silt macro, it may be an identity guard running.

Feel free to chat me in game if you need help - Uilnaydar

P.S. Special thanks to Skyfeather and Kasiya for help in finding this issue!

Corrupt Zip File Work Around

Sometimes when you download a zip file (via Internet Explorer) from this wiki the file will show as corrupt and you cannot open it. There is a browser setting that prevents the download from happening properly.

For Windows IE you need to alter the HTTP options:

  1. Tools/Internet Options/Advanced Tab/HTTP 1.1 Settings
    1. untick Use HTTP 1.1
    2. untick Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections
  2. Apply the change and restart the browser (close it and reopen).

Now try to do the download again and your zip file should be OK. Reverse the above steps once you have the zip files downloaded.


You know what, I've left this option unticked for quite sometime and have yet to see any negative side effects. I can still download files from various sites, no problems... Now I just leave it unticked all the time so it continues to download uncorrupted .zip files off wiki, via IE. ~Cegaiel
  • Here is why you might want to re-enable this: ~Zhukuram
HTTP 1.1 is a newer protocol. With this unticked the browser uses HTTP 1.0.
From Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypertext_Transfer_Protocol
HTTP/1.0 uses a separate connection to the same server for every request-response transaction
HTTP/1.1 can reuse a connection multiple times

Hence HTTP/1.1 communications experience less latency as the establishment of TCP connections presents considerable overhead.


TaleScripts for VeggieTales

  • TaleScripts is now online and functional - Jan 29, 2012
    • Keep your VeggieTales up to date from a central repository, via GIT or SVN (and NOW an Update button in VeggieTales v1.6.0+).
    • More tweaks and 3rd party macros will still be added over time. Check updates often!
      • The goal is to eventually get every useful 3rd party VT macros added (listed on this page and some that are not) to the repository, as well as other updates and tweaks.
      • Once this happens, then you can just download everything with two clicks (and keep everything patched with new updates, also two clicks).
      • Note there is a fully automated crematory macro, charcoal macro and kettle macro included here, if you are hunting for one!

We will not update or modify the original zipped versions from their respective author that are displayed on this page. However, any fine tuning/tweaks we find that are needed or would be beneficial will be done in TaleScripts.


NEWS: Read about VeggieTales v1.6.5, It now includes an update button to sync/get updates from TaleScripts. You no longer need to use the Git or SVN program to get your updates. See news in TaleScripts for more info!

AC Tool

There are a couple of issues with AC Tool that, once you fix, make it very easy and good to use.

  • Windows XP, start the program in Administrator Mode.
  • If you get the error "Could not find Decal's MEMLOCKS.XML", just click Macro > Asheron's Call 1 Settings > Skip AC Mouse Memory Writes
  • Setting <f2> and <f3> as start and stop hot keys will help fix most of the issues of "run away" macros.



Misc

    • Free Application!
    • Position a small arrow anywhere on your screen.
    • Set the timer.

Records in real time, no scripts to edit, easy for anyone to use. Program no longer made or supported, found in old archived backup CD. (Screenshot)


Personally I like autohotkey because it's freeware and is still being updated - Blogot

I second the Autohotkey recommendation, it has some extremely powerful features but is still fast and lightweight, and new features are being added all the time. - Dragyn

Personally I like AutoIt 3.0 it is freeware updated alot and it is very powerful allows macroing of almost anything windows - Ledeanna

I second the AutoIt recommendation, it is very powerful as well, easy to code and allows compiling the scripts for use by people who want to macro but feel not competent enough to write their own or who dont want to install the scripting software. ~Anguz - Note - AutoHotKey also allows you to compile an exe for machines with out AHK installed. ~Jhnny

Added SCAR Divi, its similar to ACtool, but in my opinion much better. It has very nice support for Bitmap searching, and even Bitmask searching. The bitmaps can be converted to strings, and loaded directly in from the script (Rather then saved as images). Lots of other features, but people will have to find them. SCAR also supports bitmap masks, and Deformable template models, which allows the macro to find and identify multiple images, or peices of text, even when the colours, position, or even size has changed. Its possible to make fairly advanced macros that will work regardless of window positions ingame, or resolution.--Kinslayer 08:32, 29 August 2009 (EST)


Running without Windows?

A lot of the macro effort has gone towards programs for windows. The windows version of atitd can be run using www.winehq.org (run Windows applications on Linux, BSD, Solaris and Mac OS X).

VeggieTales and autohotkey work to some extent using this emulator along with the windows emulation of atitd.

Autohotkey 'keys' need to be changed to ones that work (Scrolllock, Numpad up/down/left/pageup/down buttons seem to work on ubuntu10). Recording and playback work only on windows emulated programs, but that's enough to save you from windows.
