AHK Script for investigating spells
« on: January 11, 2019, 01:55:41 AM »

I wrote an AutoHotKey script last night. I love AHK. It gave me control back over my computer. Computers were meant to be our servants, damn it! And now they can be again.

Running UA in windowed mode, I got a screenshot of the spell rune ring, checked the positions of the centre of each rune in a graphics program(*), and plugged in into the top of the following program (these values will vary depending on your screen res):

Code: [Select]
; Try all spell combos. Assumes:
; - UA is run in windowed mode
; - the spell ring is active
; - you're not gonna touch keyb or mouse for like 5 hours.

; Rune coords. Screenshot UA window, then get rune coords in a graphics program.
aXPos := [1230, 1350, 1460, 1250, 920, 800, 730, 710, 730, 800, 930 ]
aYPos := [ 280,  370,  620,  970, 960, 870, 752, 620, 480, 370, 280 ]
; Cancel 'X' button coords.
cancelX := 1080
cancelY := 250

; Get ready to rumble...
SetDefaultMouseSpeed 0
SendMode Event
MsgBox Click in the Ultima Ascendant window
WinWaitActive Underworld Ascendant

; Once the window's active, loop all 4-rune combos.
; Note this also tests all 2- and 3-rune combos as you type 2 runes in the process of typing 4.
For i1, x1 in aXPos
  y1 := aYPos[i1]
  For i2, x2 in aXPos
    y2 := aYPos[i2]
    For i3, x3 in aXPos
      y3 := aYPos[i3]
      For i4, x4 in aXPos
        y4 := aYPos[i4]

        ; Click the 4 runes.       
        MouseMove %x1%, %y1%
        Click %x1%, %y1%
        MouseMove %x2%, %y2%
        Click %x2%, %y2%
        MouseMove %x3%, %y3%
        Click %x3%, %y3%
        MouseMove %x4%, %y4%
        Click %x4%, %y4%
        ; Click cancel. Redundant unless one rune click didn't register.
        MouseMove %cancelX%, %cancelY%
        Click %cancelX%, %cancelY%
; Let whoever checks this in the morning know it didn't crash.
MsgBox Completed successfully

(* I'm lying, that woulda been the easy way: I wrote a mouse-click logger and clicked each rune in turn, then copy-pasted the numbers from the log. A screenshot would've saved me well over an hour... sheesh. Still, now I have a cool mouseclick logger!)
