Earth & Beyond

Recommended Posts

Heya everyone, just wondering if anyone here is thinking of creating any macro's for the Earth & Beyond game being re-created by the chaps over at enb-emulator.com... their just coming to the end of a stress test session which has proved quite successful, alas some of the old macros which worked very well in the original EA game dont quite work in this one... !

Actually I was cleaning my folders out about 6 moths ago and deleted all of those I had made. I'm mad now and wish I still had them. I have a MiniMiner macro but it doesn't have much error checking at the moment and still needs some refining. As flakey as the servers have been, it has been hard to get fixed.

The installer for wabbits scripts want AC tools version 4.5.5 beta or higher but i dont see this available for download can anyone point me at this version, latest i can see is 5.4.0?

 

:unsure:

 

Well, Guess your Not a Hacker.. Look at the Link for 5.4.0.... Copy the Link.. Paste it in a new Tab and delete the actools 5.4.0.exe part... POOF the Download directory, From AcTools3.2 forward.

Tried the version 4.6.2 but still the same error message it says it needs 4.5.5 beta or higher :(

yeah, I don't think it's the Version you have, The problem is the Installer. I've changed my Version via RegEdit also changed the Beta value to True..

 

The Exe could be corrupt.

I threw these together, very basic, but do the job

 

Screen is 1680 x 1050

 

(If you want to make smaller, screen capture and open the picture, use ctrl m to get position on your picture, and change the screen position yourself. It is not that hard, if I can do it so can you)

 

As I improve I hope to be able to add better ways of coding these as I have seen in past macros

 

 

I can only get better :)

 

 

 

 

 

I don't really get what you mean by adjusting the screen, I use 1280 x 1024, can you please explain better what you mean? I am new to using ac tools, IDK if you mean to open the picture using ac tools or using ms paint or what. a better explaination would be great, so far the macro is not working at all.

What you do is

1) In-game, press the pause/break/scroll lock key to take a screen shot

 

2) Open C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Earth & Beyond\Data\client\output. Here I move the screen shot to another folder and give it a name, eg; Glenn from Somerled, Glenn from Prasad, you get the idea

 

3) Open the renamed / or not, screen shot with Windows Photo Viewer, or whatever program you use, as long as it can display the picture full size (full size is the resolution you took the screen shot when running Earth and Beyond)

 

4) Display the picture in full size

 

5) With Windows Photo Viewer you can open actools (from the icons at the bottom of the screen) and it will be the front screen with the picture behind it

 

6) On a blank line in actools (you create a blank line by putting the cursor on the beginning of a line and hit enter, then move the cursor to the beginning of the blank line), move the little hand to where you want the cursor to click, eg; on a nav point

 

Ok, tricky bit as this is how it works on my screen. Because the screen shot is not exactly where the cursor is when I play, I place the middle finger of the hand in line with the middle of the object and below it a bit

 

**The hand shows on the full size picture, you may have to move actools out of the way, so you can see where you want the cursor to be, to activate the gate or whatever. On my screen I need to CTRL M Key the middle finger as I mentioned above (I experimented till I found how much the cursor position was out and compensated for it**

 

 

7) When you have the actool hand where you want it press CTRL M Key

 

8) In the actool window you will have a statement like "MousePos xxx, xxx " Look at line 6 on the macro below. It is where the reactor is on your ship in 1680 x 1050 screen mode

 

Now to see how close you positioned the CTRL M Key to where you want it, you would run a simple macro, which is below this macro, I'll add a longer timer so you can see where your cursor is

 

SetActiveWindow Earth & Beyond // 1680/1050 screen

delay 4 sec

// Move warp buff Reactor to Hotkey 4 \\

keys i // Open Ship Screen

delay .2 sec

MousePos 852, 813 // Reactor position on Ship \\

delay .2 sec

leftmousedown // Reactor Icon to Hotkey position 4 \\

delay .2 sec

MousePos 1035, 985 // Hotkey position 4 \\

delay .2 sec

leftmouseup // Release Reactor Icon \\

delay .2 sec

keys i

delay .2 sec

keys 4 //Activate warp buff

// Open Map, Shrink Map, Close Map \\

keys m // Map \\

delay .2 sec

MousePos 323, 660 // Cursor in Map Area \\

keydown - 3 sec // Shrink Map \\

delay .2 sec

keys m // Close Map \\

delay .2 sec

 

 

 

This second macro with a longer timer (3 seconds) to see where your cursor is and which way you need to move it. i tried to guess at where you need the cursor positioned, so hopefully it's not to far from where you need it

 

REMEMBER first 3 digits are * left to right on your screen 0 to 1280 and the next 3 are top to bottom 0 to 1024 *

 

SetActiveWindow Earth & Beyond //

delay 4 sec

// Move warp buff Reactor to Hotkey 4 \\

keys i // Open Ship Screen

delay .2 sec

MousePos 852, 813 // Reactor position on Ship \\

delay 3 sec

leftmousedown // Reactor Icon to Hotkey position 4 \\

delay 3 sec

MousePos 1035, 985 // Hotkey position 4 \\

delay 3 sec

leftmouseup // Release Reactor Icon \\

delay 3 sec

keys i

delay .2 sec

keys 4 //Activate warp buff

 

Included (I hope) are screen shots and a little macro that you can play with

Add here is an updated version that supports: Somer -> Prasad trade as well as Somer->Fenris.

This macro as a relogging proc. that execute every 5 mins and will cope with lag/disconnections issues

Enjoy

 

Heya, what would I have to do to get your macro to work in 1280/1024, I know how to do it with a simple macro but yours seems quite complex.
