This project entails writing a macro script in AutoIt, which can be found at [url removed, login to view]
This macro will be used for the game known as Darkfall. You will not really need any knowledge of the game to write the script. I tried to make this explanation fairly clear but it does have some gaming terms so if anyone needs clarification just ask.
Essentially what I want to do is this:
1. Put a desired staff(a game item) on hotbar slot 1 and spells on slots 2-10(10 is represented by 0).
2. Assign an in-game hotkey to each of those slots, i.e. Ctrl + 1 = slot 1, Ctrl + 2 = slot 2.
What I now need to do is have an autoit macro with an assigned hotkey(F1) that when pressed will do keyclicks for "Ctrl + 1" to equip the staff but will continue down the line of "Ctrl + 2," "Ctrl + 3," and so forth each time the hotkey is pressed. The result would be something like this:
- Press F1: staff equips
- Press F1: Spell 1 is selected
- Press F1: Spell 2 is seleted
- Press F1: Spell 3 is selected
and so forth...
This is a very quick and easy project for someone with in coding, even if not very familiar with AutoIt. It has been suggested to me to use the functions HotKeySet() and send() so that may help you. If you would prefer to use other software/scripts for this, it will need to be formatted so that I can easily change the parameters to allow for multiple instances of this macro running with different hotkeys.
My budget for this is admittedly small as I am a student and this entire project will likely take someone an hour at most to complete.
