How to lock-on a pixel, even if the screen moves?

Recommended Posts

Evlesoa

Hi everyone.

I hope I can get some help on this.

I have a script that does something basic like...

While 1
$PixelLoc = PixelSearch(0, 0, @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight, 0xCOLOR)
If Not @error Then
MouseClick("primary", $PixelLoc[0], $PixelLoc[1], 3, 0)
EndIf
WEnd

Thing is, this scans the screen. But what if I move my mouse to the pixel, and want it to lock on to that pixel and click it, rather than constantly moving my mouse around trying to keep up with the screen's changing position? Is that even possible?

Many thanks.

Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

Which program do you try to automate? There might be easier ways to do what you want to do.

Hi. Thanks. Basically, it's a top-down 2D game known as Forgotten Elements. What I'd like to do is make it easier for me to pickup my potions, but I don't want to have it in a way that works like an auto pick up, that'd be too easy. I simply want to avoid the part of clicking the mouse. So my plan is: move my cursor over the item, and let my character be locked on to it until he picks it up. Problem is that he has to run to the item, all-the-while my mouse is locked on to the item (potion in this case). The screen keeps moving, though.

Please note I just started scripting today, so I'm not very good with this.

Any suggestions?

(I'm off to sleep but I'll check in about 6 hours or 18). Thanks in advance for the help!

Evlesoa,

please make sure to read the forum rules (link is in the lower right corner of every page). Game automation isn't permitted here :naughty:

Evlesoa,

water is quite right - please read the Forum rules (the link is also at bottom right of each page) - particularly the bit about not discussing game automation - before you post again. Thread locked. :naughty:

See you soon with a legitimate question I hope. :)
