Quick question, scripting

    Just returning back to Ultima Online (still awesome after all these years), I've searched the forums with not really a yae or nae on scripting these days, is it allowed?
    I guess to narrow it down, resource scripting? (mining, etc)
    I don't want to get in trouble and get my old account banned :(
    Cheers thank you.

    No, all scripting puts your account at risk.

    If you have to ask, then it's illegal. unless using 'approved ' programs which only run little maco's, like UO Assist. The EC client does macros too i think. Welcome back

    Scripting is okay as long as you don't tell stratics babies about it.
  7. partially unattended macro scripting from the upgrade is fine.

    if you answer when a gm comes, they could care less if you are scripting. they thank you for answering and go away. just being honest. you only get in trouble if you do not answer.

    But yes, it is considered illegal use of third party programs. Gms will tell you that they only care that you answer them... they know it is obviously a script performing certain routines.

    Apart from the fact, that everybody here seems to have resignated and practically telling you to go ahead and script because you won't be caugt (and i fear they're probably right) - you could always use the Enhanced Client. There are heaps of nifty features, mods and command scripts (legal) that nearly remove the need to script with non-approved programs.

    Using the features of approved apps or clients while attended is generally considered OK. Anything unattended or apps that are not approved is never considered OK.

    Posting over the top comparisons on Stratics is not Ok with me. :talktothehand:

    The apps not approved part is misleading. So really unattended is not approved. Outside macros that interacts with the keyboard are ok as long as attended or else they would have to ban everything running on the pc except for uo and windows.
