    Does anyone else have the problem of keying a chug macro for greater strength etc that sets this pot off? Everytime a hit one of my recorded chugs it sets it off.

    No.

    Only problem with pots ive noticed is how Conflags change into Nightsights after they have been stolen.

    Its a possibility, since imbuing most of my chars carry explodes and Conflags now(50EP on every temp!). Never had one go of accidently(apart from bad timing). As i said though i have had conflags turn into Nightsight pots, so it wouldn't surprise me if something dodgy could happen.

    I only have two recorded chugs which is str and dex, and either one sets it off and makes it pointless to carry the faction exp pots. It does the same thing with the faction refresh pot. Any of the other pots it doesnt affect.


    Not a big deal, just curious if any had the same problem.
     
  6. After i hit a supernova my str and dex macros dont work, it says "Type not found" and i have to reset the item to str and dex

    I haven't had that problem yet, have you tried the count resources button and tried the macro again?
     
  8. Yea, still says the same, all other macros work fine like eat apple ect

    Its the same bug as with the conflags.

    Different pot same affect. Youll probably find if you steal them of someone they will change into str or dex pots as well, there is something wrong with the id codes probably (btw, i thought you meant explosion pots on a faction char...not supernovas)

    I use novas regularly, UOAssist cannot differentiate between novas and strengths as a 'type'.

    What I do is record a separate macro for each and never specify 'use item type'.

    It's a bit of a pain in the ass to reset it every time you die or restock, but it's better than popping a nova when you're trying to chug a strength.

    I've thought about doing that but I figured it wasn't worth the trouble although I do like having a couple novas on me.

    If you're using UOA and this is a problem, there is something screwy. Not even the commonly used UOA substitute has a problem recognizing the str pots vs the nova pots.

    A less common thing does but I like to assume nobody cheats in UO.

    I only run UOassist, and it is a recorded macro to chug str. But you can accuse me of cheating if it makes you feel better.

    Everyone that I've ever played with in vent has the same problem. It's not screwy, it's just a problem with UOA.

    Nonel, you think having anything over a 64k modem is cheating. :mf_prop:

    I never knew a 64k connection existed..

    Wasn't it 56k dialup, then a semi-broadband speed of 128k was offered?

    Could have been 56k, I dont really remember. For some reason I thought it was 64, but I've been wrong before.

    You were probably thinking 64MB of ram, with a 56k modem. I think Lynk hit it right if I remember, I had a 56k, and then a 128k internet connection. I don't miss those days....

    Or do you still have that rig where you have to talk through your speakers?
