Loop until Colour Recognition?

Recommended Posts


Hi guys, I've been playing about with AutoIt for a couple weeks now and decided to join the forums as from what I've seen it's quite a helpful and welcoming community.

I'm trying to create a script that will do X until an rgb color is recognised within a certain area. Let me simplify it a bit.


Paul is fighting a monster, this fight consists of simply clicking on the monster and waiting to see the outcome.

If Paul gets low on health he needs to stop fighting the monster and drink a health potion, so.. AutoIT comes into play as it monitors his health bar colour. It recognises the default colour is green, when red is displayed, paul will stop what he's doing and drink a health potion, then continue to fight the monster until death. 


So basically, I'm wondering if it's possible to scan a certain part of the screen consistently until a certain colour is detected.. this will the exit the loop and you can do whatever else from there... 


Thanks! :)

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.


it's quite a helpful and welcoming community

It is - unless you break the Forum rules.  I suggest you  read them now - particularly the bit about not discussing game automation - and then you will understand why you will get no help and this thread will now be locked.

See you soon with a legitimate question I hope.
