Winterbay's Helpful Automatic Monsterbasher (WHAM)

WHAM 5.6
relay WHAM dontuse 0.4.3

This script is a developed version of the SpamAttack script that exists in this forum in several different places. It is a rather robust way to handle most monsters (and those it can't handle it'll tell you and potentially also print some nice helpful info for, requires a verbosity of at least 3).

The script tries to calculate the cheapest way to kill the monster by smart use of your skills and items. As such the script is pretty calculation heavy and may take a few seconds to run. The speed after version 2.0 is almost negligible unless the scripts decides on a very elaborate strategy to kill the monster.

As of version 5.6 (released on 2013-06-10) the script and its relay-counterpart is installed and udated via SVN. In order to use the very useful feature you need a recent build of Kol Mafia. After logging in type the following in the CLI and press enter:
svn checkout

After the command has run you will have WHAM.ash in your /scripts folder and relay_WHAM_dontuse.ash in your /relay folder. In case you get a prompt about overwriting files press OK (if not make sure that any older versions of WHAM is removed). In order to update the scripts in the future either type svn update in the CLI or tick "Update installed SVN projects on login" in Mafia's preferences (found at the bottom under SVN).

This script relies heavily on vprint() and the output is regulated with Zlib's verbosity-setting and it is possible to get it to output nothing with useful info starting at a verbosity level of 3. If you set the verbosity to 10 the script will
a) Print information regarding all the skills and items it thinks you have available and the amount of damage you might do with them (both before and after taking monster resistance into account)
b) Output a bunch of text-files to your /data folder for debugging purposes and
c) Abort execution before it actually does anything with the monster

The script has several layers of verbosity that can be set depending on how interested you are in what is going on. A rough guideline is:
3-4: Basic helpful information
5-7: Increasingly more verbose output on what is going on without being overly intrusive
8-11: Increasing amounts of debugging information, 10 and 11 will abort without perfoming anything actual actions (also completely bypasses SmartStasis integration)

Please post feedback and suggestions since I'm always interested in making the script more useful. In case you want to help out test new features you can also install the beta version of WHAM by the following command:
svn checkout

In order for the script to run properly you will need the following support scripts:

You also need to set your Combat Action to "custom combat script" and create an entry containing:
[ default ]
consult WHAM.ash

In case you want to you can also fine tune a couple of things in the script:

  1. The amount of turns the script should try to calculate before executing and retrying (defaults to 15)
  2. The hitchance you are willing to risk (defaults to 50%, or 0.5 to be exact)
  3. The max number of rounds you are willing to let the script automate skill-slinging before it reverts control to you (defaults to 30)
  4. A boolean safety parameter. If set to true the script will execute your best option and re-calculate your options form the result until either you are dead or the monster is (defaults to false, new form 2.8)
  5. A boolean parameter that if set tu true will make you not use any items at all when fighting (defauilts to false, new from 3.1)
  6. An integer parameter indicating how many extra rounds you wish WHAM to refrain from stasising (defaults to 0, new from 4.1)
  7. A boolean parameter to toggle use of the Sea Lasso in The Sea (defaults to false, new from 5.3)
  8. A boolean parameter that can be set to swap WHAM from trying to do things as profitable as possible to kill the monster as quick as possible without factoring in cost in any way (default false, new from 5.4)
  9. Two integer parameters indicating how much we are willing to spend to make the combat one round shorter, one for ronin and one for aftercore (to allow for different playstyle in the different cases) (defaults to 5 and 50 respectively, new from r13)
  10. A relay script relay_WHAM_dontuse that can be used to finetune the items and skills used by WHAM. Explanations on how to use it is shown when run. Put it in the /relay folder and run from the drop down in the relay browser. Requires Jason's htmlform in order to function (linked above).

In order to change them use commands like this in the CLI:
zlib WHAM_round_limit = <wanted number>
zlib WHAM_hitchance = <wanted fraction>
zlib WHAM_maxround = <wanted number>
zlib WHAM_AlwaysContinue = true or false
zlib WHAM_noitemsplease = true or false
zlib WHAM_safetymargin = <wanted number>
zlib WHAM_UseSeaLasso = true or false
zlib WHAM_killit = true or false
zlib WHAM_roundcost_aftercore= <wanted number>
zlib WHAM_roundcost_ronin = <wanted number>

Since these variables are set upon first execution it is advisable to run the script from the script-menu once before entering combat if you want to change them. If you do so, you can abort at the first pop-up (or set verbosity to 10 before the first fight you use the script in).

I firmly believe in judging a script by the cleverness of its name, so I am highly looking forward to trying this one out.

I willingly admit to having waited a couple of days longer than strictly necessary to post this because I wanted to come up with a suitable acronym... :)
As a first general recommendation, I suggest you to remove the notify:

Hmm... I was under the impression that would only fire if you ranit from the script-menu. I appear to have been wrong. I shall rectify that :)

Edit: Also, I should perhaps note somewhere that "n bottles of beer on a golem" is one of the monsters the script will have a hard time with due to the skill blocking properties of it.

Just tried this. Thank you. Some message that flashed by on the screen referred to "SpamAttack" when I would have expected it to say "WHAM". I'm not sure what the WHAM_round_limit means in a practical sense but I had to raise it before WHAM was willing to run the fight. It stopped several times and told me it couldn't do what I wanted and suggested I run the combat manually and rerun with a higher verbosity. I'm not sure I understood everything but with the higher verbosity it told me what attacks would be best so that I could perform those manually. If that is true then it would be easier on the user if the information appeared, before the script stopped, with normal verbosity (3). Then I could just fight the good fight. The script seemed to have great difficulty when I was Beaten Up. It would consistently stop all automation in this case.

My primary reason to use it is as part of automation. With a multi-skilled character I suspect using it will be easier than tweaking my CCS every time I ascend. With that vision in mind, as long as it can complete the combat I don't care how long it takes. Indeed, if I cannot defeat the monster in 30 rounds then the logic that sent me to fight that monster needs to be reassessed. But in a perfect world I would want WHAM to never stop or abort automation unless it was as certain as it could be that the character would not survive. That may be the case now with WHAM_round_limit set high enough or there may be a feature request implied in that.

In any event just having something that tells me Saucestorm will be better than Lunging Thrust Smack for the current circumstances is fun. Thanks.


Active member
Currently that information is at verbosity 7 which may be a bit too high. I've set it to 3 in my local copy, which might be better since it is rather vital information in that case.
The WHAM_round_limit is for when you're a muscle or mysticallity class. It controls how many rounds it will consider just attacking for (without you getting killed of course) instead of going over and try with skills. One thing I'd like to do is manage to get attack in as a potential thing to use together with your skills.
The script will halt if you cannot kill the monster, without getting killed, with your attack before WHAM_round_limit or in five rounds with skills.

There is a small problem at the moment where the stun from Noodles from SS isn't taken into account in the later consideration which I'm not really sure why (so you could in fact survive 4 rounds instead of 2 but for some reason the script doesn't see this.


Staff member
I'm guessing WHAM doesn't realize SS has already banished the monster?

You're on your own, partner.

At this point I had already finished the fight. Only a concern because it stops automation.


Active member
Yes and no. It should recognize all autostops but batbrain has a bug where that doesn't work (it sets the turn number incorrectly so the detection won't work).


Staff member
Yes and no. It should recognize all autostops but batbrain has a bug where that doesn't work (it sets the turn number incorrectly so the detection won't work).

To confirm then, if I actually understood what happened ;-) I would report this as a BatBrain 'error'? I infer, however that BatBrain (zarqon) already knows the error exists so my response is to be patient.


Active member
I've reported it already (i.e. the last post in the BatBrain thread currently where I had the exact same problem as you did and was confused because the code I had set up should've handled it...).


Active member
Version 1.2 uploaded with a fix that should make the script successfully detect if the fight ended in a sneaky way and not abort automation when that happens. Untested, but the theory is sound and the basis for it is tested :)

FWIW, I saw this abort two or three times yesterday, with the previous version, and none today with the new version so my experience supports the "It is Fixed" hypothesis.


Active member
Version 1.3 has been released which includes some fixes for fights aborting incorrectly (more specifically free runaways) as well as detection of temporary amnesia if you are fighting with skills.

Edit: Updated to 1.3.1 since I forgot a parenthesis which didn't show up until after the script was run in a fight (it verified just fine).

I assume he means all the "the string 'foo' is not an integer" messages?

Possible... that just looks like WHAM had a major datafile bork. If it keeps happening, I'd suggest deleting your batfactors.txt file and letting it get a new one, if you haven't changed it yourself. If you have, knock it off... or at least, knock off editing it with an editor that screws up tabs. :)

But WHAM not being able to calculate which of the available commands were best able to complete because it had 0/0/0 monster stats would be a mafia datafile thing, not a WHAM issue.


Active member
Yeah, ghoul whelps have no stats in Mafia and are thus controlled by the zlib-setting unknown_ml, setting that too high may lead to unexpected results at lower levels like this. I usually have mine somewhere between 120 and 200 depending on where in an ascension I am.

When it comes to the "not an integer"-part it does appear like a broken data-file. I would suggest starting by deleting (or renaming) your batfactors.txt and see if that helps. I've had no such problems today at least and line 479 is where the script is excising the skill-ID from batfactors.


Thanks to all for the suggestions.
I have never intentionally touched the data files - but have now deleted batfactors.txt (dated 2012-01-16 19:41) . Will know if it works in 5 days :)
