Dev´s: Why is making working macros still NOT handy :(

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Der Rock, Aug 25, 2009.

    dev´s try to make the 2 following macros
    (in short time,test ureself how handy you made the macro system in SA) :scholar:

    macro 1.teleport to spot-lumber trees - then make all kind of wood into boards- then make normal wood to shafts-teleport to next spot and repeat
    perhaps in 1 (one) macro

    macro 2.teleport to spot- start -mining- use prospector tool- mining- smelt all different coloured ingots(fire beetle)-teleport another spot and repeat (5-10 repeats)(also in 1 macro)(this macro works almost 100%,only the prospector tool dont works properly)

    also we cant store the boards/shafts/ingots/gems to a target/stored chest at the housefront(scripter CAN, we fair gamer CAN´T) :thumbdown:

    :bdh: :sad4:

    Try area peace or using bandaids on your pet....or self.

    I can get none to work if it involves targeting something after using an item or skill. Stored target is not working properly.

    Oh well works great in 2d!:D

    Oh God...me too. Few things can't be done in the Enhanced Client, but for non-techy folks like me, it would be fantastic.

    This, and being able to recall to several locations, using macros, that are all within one rune book would REALLY make me happy!

    Area Peace = Put peace in a hotbar slot, set to target self, assign key..... Works perfectly oO.

    Bandaids on pet and self work fine as well, if you want a loop like I have

    1) Bandaids
    2) set target to self
    3) Add delay
    4) Turn repeat on
    5) Set repeat to 10

    For pets same as above but set target to stored and select your pet.

    Actually, I was planning to make such macroes too.

    I have the feeling it should be possible with UOSA. Recalling in and out is easy with using the stored target feature. One "just" need to find a good way to sneak the harvesting part in that macro. I

    You can have a record macro option, go buy a G13 oO............... can do far more with a G13 and the Enhanced client than you ever could with UOA and 2D.

  9. TheGrayGhost

    TheGrayGhost Guest

    To be honest, this can be done fairly easy but........not sure it really should be.

    I hate to share but to prove that the Enhanced client isn't missing what many claim it is. If you want to teleport harvest ............. :( simply do the following.

    Mark runes to where you want to harvest. Put them each in a seperate book. Set the rune as the default for each book. Now stick the books in your backpack. Grab some harvesting tools and make the following macro.

    1) Recall - Target stored - Minning 1
    2) Delay 3
    3) Target By Resource - Insert Pickaxe - Select Ore
    4) Delay - 1
    do 3 and 4 a few times, when you have the desired amount of times after the last Target by resource continue
    5) Delay 2
    6) Recall - Target Stored - Minning 2
    7) Delay 3
    do 3-4 the desired number of times.

    This should give you the jist of how to make the macro you are wanting............... Just don't abuse it oO.

    Edited to Add: Minning 1 and 2 are the rune books. Just thought I should clarrify incase someone didn't understand.
  10. macro me this ...
    log in
    play uo
    wow; thats complicated.
    sorry, i just couldnt resist being a smartass!

    Any other Macro's you guys can't figure out?
  12. Mitzlplik_SP

    Mitzlplik_SP Guest

    Just got home from work,I`ll let ya know GreyGhost. I couldn`t get either to work,I`ve tried repeatedly.I always get the target cursor or I end up having to dbl tap a button instead of a one button push. Trying again..............
  13. Mitzlplik_SP

    Mitzlplik_SP Guest

    OK,set up a macro to use aids on pet like this:
    1. aids
    2.stored target and target my dog
    3.used delay

    Now if I push f9 once....I get the cursor and nothing happens.If I hit f9 twice the macro starts but as its running my target cursor stays popping up until the macro is done. Is that normal?

    As far as area peace its the same thing. One button push and nothing but a target cursor,a second and I get area peace to work. Is that normal?

    I mean if thats the way its supposed to be than I guess its my problem,but I`m assuming its not supposed to require 2 hits of a button or require someone to hafta watch a targetting cursor while your trying to disco or peace.

    Made my macro`s exactly the way you listed(which was the way I had them originally),dunno what I could have done wrong,but I`m open for suggetions.

    Note:Many macros will not work if you are using legacy targetting.

    Bingo! That fixed it. Thanks,that took a major annoyance outa SA.

    i posted several times, that if UOSA client will be successfull,the client has to be as good as UOAssist and it has to match with the other scripter- programm scum.

    even if the macros are easy and handy to create,we have enough things left to do manually, so it has nothing to do with macro-login- macro play uo

    following things we need to let UOSA be a success:

    1.reactivate lost players

    2.draw over those player who not realy liked to use THE unaproved 3rd party prog but they use it because of timesaving (skilling/resourcegathering ect.)
    (sometimes i have a certain understanding for those players,even if i dont like them at all)

    3.attract NEW players to try the new UOSA client

    4.get rid of the pure hopeless scum cheater/duper/scripter/speedhacker

    4 steps, all are basic for UOSA success

    atm the resonance and feedback is not as high (countdown 14 day bevore release) as UO need to survive in the long term.

    (or do you think they release the SA expansion only for the left 10-100 realy active player per shard ?)
  17. Mitzlplik_SP

    Mitzlplik_SP Guest

    I think the feedback is very high for this expac and most of it is positive.Uo has already survived the long term,I`m pretty sure its gonna stay around for quite some time in the future.

    10-100 left per shard? Way off. Have you attended any EM events? Or an events at all? Even on the dead shard of LS,peaple come out in droves for these events.Its obviously not the doom and gloom some peaple suggest or EA would not be throwin money at a dying game.

    I`ll concede this game is dying when I can place a house inside Luna`s walls.Until than,its all propaganda.
  18. Der Rock

    Der Rock Guest

    What you think and what is real are 2 pair of shoes ;)
    "....feedback is very high...." ? in wich relationship you set this?
    login at different times on retributionshard and see never more then 20-50 player ?
    or if you don´t see a significant increase of poster/reader here on stratics?
    or you dont see a noticeable amount of player in game?

    Yes i have, i also take a look on the "main"shards, and i never saw more then 100 player in the latest events,NEVER.
    you can check this also additional now, if you browse the latest event pics.
    and also consider that on most shards you have to subtract the shardhopper,player from other shards, who take part on shard events (around 30-50%)

    if you count on this as an valid argument, you dont know how the world works :)
    because the luna houseowner society sell their houses straight the moment they realice
    there is the last penny left to earn.
    and the "new lunatics" houseowners then, are the hardcore "i switch the light off player"
    so, Luna will fall at last.

    to pessimistic? i dont know,but to say all is fine as it is, is also wrong
    the new client is good,SA expantion looks also good, but will it be good enough to restock the playerbase?

    we are not out of the woods by now
    (remember,not long ago they already had the thumb on the button)
  19. Mitzlplik_SP

    OK,I mis spoke when I said "feedback". What can I say it was early this mornin before the coffee even hit the cup. I meant positive feedback. I`m readin ALOT more pro SA than against. I am no fan of SA but I have a feeling I may be in the future.It has alot of features that would make it worth while to play and be more enjoyable.It just isn`t there yet for me though. I remember when KR came out,it was nothing like this. Not my fault if you can`t see the obvious. Peaple like this xpac.

    Yes there is a lower playerbase these days,but it is obviously not low enough for EA to quit on. They are not spending money and time on one last l hope this does it xpac. They have plans for the future I`m sure. Why would EM`s again be a part of the game if its in its death throws? I think they see this as a relatively cheap game to run and maintain compared to the revenue that comes in from it.Other titles need a regular expac`s and new content and events all the time or peaple leave within months. The great ones may last a few years but they still go down after having ALOT more money thrown at them compared to UO`s investment. I mean the doom and gloom that UO is dying is just old and outdated. Thats been around since that last millennia!

    I wasn`t being literal on the Luna thing. I wouldn`t own a house in Luna to be honest. I detest that place. Reminds me of Washington,the home of the greedy and corrupt.

    *** Sorry no offense to you honest players,but you know you share space with criminals!***:D

    Thanks! Sorry, I keep forgetting that Legacy Targeting is default lol.

    :) i didn´t say i would not like SA and the new client ,i like it a lot.(using 100% new client by my self)
    yes there is predominat positive feedback,but to bring back old and alure new player, we need more,mainly the new client must satisfy the repatriate,that they can keep up with the scripter.

    EM´s are not a expensive investment ;)
    they did it because some player asked for that,those players thought it would work as bevore.But it doesn´t,the new EM´s are on a short leash
    EM revitalization a success?here and there maybe,all in all, not such a big deal
  22. sorry rock. i cant set up a macro to save my life! (i have no patience) much less a macro in the new client. i was just bein a dork. its just my nature to take things to their most simple forms. i meant no offense to ya i swear.
    u make some valid points and observations.
    dont hate me for bein a goof?
