OK, so I have been wanting to learn how to script in ash for awhile now but I never saw anything that really caught my attention that I also thought I could do. I found an old thread from 2009 by tebee with a glyph checker script. It was abandoned and I thought that maybe I could add some adventuring to it so it would automatically get the codes also for aftercore. This is the first time I ever made a script so I am kinda proud even though I have alot of questions about it so I can fix things.
One of the main problems (I am not actually sure is a problem but if it is then it will ruin the entire script) is I am not sure how autoabort works in relation to a script. The wiki said that it stops the automation aspect of Mafia but does that include scripts? It also said that it wouldn't autoabort if there was a condition that is still unfulfilled, is there a way to add a specific non-adventure as the condition? I used
That is kinda scary and I am not sure if it will work. Will the auto stop make it stop adventuring there with that line? Will it abort the entire script or actually just abort that adventure sequence and allow the script to continue executing lines after that adventure line?
Another problem is I feel like it will lag too much (and hammer on the servers WAY too much) because I visit url's constantly throughout the script. Is there and easier/simpler/less hammery way to check the quest log for all the codes with only one function? Is there a way to check a location's availibility for regular zones like The Cyrpt? --This is a part of the script that makes me very disappointed because I know there are about a billion better ways to do this but I don't know how with my limited knowledge.
I see some scripts that make a popup window that will let the user change values everytime the script is executed. How is the managed? I looked at the wiki but couldn't find anything about it. I would like to add one to see if they want it to spend adventures trying to get the codes or if they just want a list of codes they are missing.
/end huge post
THIS ISN'T FINISHED!
(Note: I commented out all the lines about adventuring because I didn't want to waste all my adventures while debugging it)
Thanks in advance for all the help!
