I need some help on a complicated problem.

Recommended Posts

Well.. First I will explain to you what my script does, so you will know. (There is no other scripts out there like this)

On an application I developed, there are "Squares" Or "Spots". These Squares each have a number that is stored in a memory value. You can move through these squares, each having a different number.

What my script does is it has a set of 100 Functions. Each of these functions is the equivalant to a square. Where it checks the sq #, if it is not the correct one then it waits for a second, then checks again. When it is the correct square it will execute a function, and then move again. It takes a couple seconds between movements, that is why it constantly checks for the value.

He is an example.. ( I would post the whole script but it is over 3,000 lines)

Func _1()
    $sq = _MemoryRead($Address, $ID) ; Reads the Sq Number
    If $sq = 3928 Then ; If the sq number is correct...
        Sleep(250)
        _function() ; then it activates a function, and then moves to the next square
    Else
        Sleep(250)
        _1() ; If the sq # is not correct, then it loops back to the same function until it is correct.
    EndIf
EndFunc

Here is the problem. Sometime for an odd reason the server lags, and therefore the movement of one square to the other does not happen. Therefore, say I am on sq #3050 and the function acts, sends the command for me to go to the NEXT square, and therefore activates the next function for #3051. Well, that command did not end up going to the server and the script is continually checking for sq #3051 instead of #3050 so it stops.

I need some way for it to loop back to the Previous Function if that function does not see the correct Sq# Within, 10 seconds.

I am thinking something like this would work.. But then I would have to go back and edit over 600 Functions, and even with a script that automatically edits these for me (Which is what I do for most tedious editing tasks) it is way too much work, and I am not even sure if it works. Any ideas?

Here is my possible(?) Solution?

$neg = 0 ; set $neg to 0

Func _2()
    $sq = _MemoryRead($Address, $ID) ; Reads the Sq Number
    If $sq = 3050 Then ; If the sq number is correct...
        Sleep(250)
        _function() ; then it activates a function, and then moves to the next square
                  $neg = 0 ; reset $neg to 0

        Else

             if $neg < 10 then 
        Sleep(1000) ; Waits one second
        _2() ; If the sq # is not correct, then it loops back to the same function until it is correct.
              $neg = $neg + 1
              EndIf

Else
_1() ; if the square is not correct after 10 seconds, then it will loop back to the previous function
$neg = 0

    EndIf
EndFunc

Please help me with this it would be very much appreciated and thank you in advance.

Also, on a side note.. NomadMemory (Which I use to find the memory values so script will work) Stops working after a while and exits the script because it has tried to read a memory so much and stops automatically for some reason (Too much load on computer) And exits out the program. To fix that I was thinking every so often the script would just restart, but I would love a better solution to this problem.

If you would like to see the full script, ask.. But it seriously has no comments or anything of the sort and you would probably not understand anything it would do. And it has around 500 Variables. Thankyou Very much.

Is this a bot for a game? About what server is talking about?

This is not a bot for a game. And the server that recieves the commands for movement, the movement is not sent and is therefore stuck doing nothing on the next function.

What this script does is everytime it moves sucessfully, the Function() function captures a screenshot of that square and saves it to the local hard disk.

And what is the purpose of that dramatic construct, exactly?

Do you need to know what the purpose of the construction is to help me? I think not. If I felt it important to say why, I would have typed it. But, it is not important.. I have coded over 45,000 lines for this single script and now I need help with a simple thing. I would love that help, thank you very much.

45000 lines?

Would be interested to see that one...

Anyway... have fun with your script.

Yes, 45000 lines. I have scripts that record the Sq # and put it into Variables and then write those variables out with the press of a hotkey etc, so that it is all manual. But seriouslly.. Can somebody please help me?

Why do you need nomad mamory to read the values of your own script you developed?

It would be easier to just use the variables it creates.

heres a handy tip for you: If trying to disguise intent or get an answer to a problem where you dont want to post your code, you should at least put your needs into proper context, understandable to someone who does not know what you are doing, and provide a working example of your problem.
