autoBasement.ash - Better basement automation

And those results were...?

The issue is that Veracity points out that's a speculate message, while autoBasement scrapes your maximization results to see how speculate works given the requests made. The specifics of your maximization results (or changes to how that is presented) are causing a closet speculation for you which has not been reported before.

Without enough specific information to fully troubleshoot and solve this, it's just an unsolvable frustration. With enough information to at least begin to deduce why, we should be able to assist you in automated basementing again.

uncloset & equip pants Oscus's flypaper pants (+0)
Is there a reason why that's in your closet? Also, why does the script want +0 choices? Ugh.

But mainly, why have that in the closet?

I regularly ascend in HC and I stuff a lot of the aftercore Clan Dungeon gear in my closet just to keep my inventory clean since I wasn't using them. Oops.

I assume the script is querying for +0 choices because it's not using the -tie modifier when generating the query string?

Well, let's see if we can knock those out. If you aren't closet-ing for a useful purpose like PvP and if it makes speculation angry, we'll try to ignore your closet items. We'll also try to skip the tiebreaker so that it only skips and ignores your closet items when they would have been an actual improvement. So not that it will use those items, but it won't even suggest them to be skipped. :)

Will try to see if I can get that in tomorrow.

Sorry about the delay - my wife's car decided to stop charging the battery and so we got to sit in a dark sketchy apartment parking lot just off the highway for a few hours. After knocking out the eldritch fights today, I'll try to tweak aB so it doesn't abort for you anymore. :)

Hopefully should skip any closet or uncloset command now. Let me know if you run into any further problems!

Need to throw the -tie eventually, but... eh.

Thanks! Will give it a try and confirm if it works :)

EDIT: Hrmm... Getting the following error when trying to run the script from the scripts menu:

Code:
> call scripts\autoBasement.ash

Unknown variable 'command' (autoBasement.ash, line 427)

Update and see if that fixes it for you? Passes validation, but I don't have the basement unlocked currently, so...

I'm having an interesting issue regarding my disembodied hand and my weapon.

Code:
> call scripts\autoBasement.ash

Taking Mr. Handy the Disembodied Hand out of terrarium...
Putting on porcelain police baton...
That's not an item, or it's not something you own.

The issue is that I have exactly one of them, and it's already in my mainhand. Looking at the maximizer set to "Muscle, switch Disembodied Hand, -tie", the familiar equipment line says "fail & equip familiar porcelain police baton", which implies that it knows it's not going to work.

What can I do to work around this, aside from disabling the disembodied hand?

Make sure you have three of each 1-handed weapon.
(doesn't help until you can, or if you can't)
Or make sure you have better equipment (brimstone, hodgman stick/hamster).

If you can get this to happen reliably with simple replicable instructions (equip this, this, this, that, use disembodied hand with nothing in it, maximize muscle with .... in inventory), post a new bug about maximizer behavior?

Edit: Solved, apparently spell damage is only a valid maximizer for autoBasement_combat_maximizer_string, not autoBasement_combat_stat.

Not really sure why, but the script keeps on aborting after it creates mp regen. Gives me "unrecognized keyword: none". Varying the verbosity doesn't change the error code at all

It still happened when autoBasement_combat_equipment was set to the naval ring, so it's most likely not that.

I'm having an annoying sort of issue with the autoBasement.ash script.

It seems like every time I run the script through the Scripts menu, it switches my HP/MP Usage settings to "Do Not Auto-Recover", particularly for MP. Even if I go in and switch them back on after starting the script, the restoration doesn't seem to operate properly, which leads to the script quitting mid-battle. What could be causing this to happen?

A quick look at the script and it looks like those settings are only restored if the script doesn't abort. There probably needs to be a try/finally added. Why the script fails to restore on its own is a much more complicated question, since it has different restore code depending on what challenge it is facing.
