Need help with a loop Script that simply wont loop


Recommended Posts

So before this gets flagged for game automation it has nothing to do with gameplay. This is a script I'm writing to autosave a server I'm running without using plugins so I can keep the server running purely vanilla. 

I basically want it to open the games console window if it's not already open and type save and hit enter every 5 mins. 

It works great when I run it however it only runs once. 

I've tried many different ways to write the script but it just won't loop.

$run = 1
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Terminate")
Opt("TrayAutoPause", 0)
While $run = 1
WinWait("[CLASS:ConsoleWindowClass]", "")
If Not Winactive("[CLASS:ConsoleWindowClass]", "") Then WinActivate("[CLASS:ConsoleWindowClass]", "")
Send("save{ENTER}")
sleep(300000)
Wend

Func _Terminate()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Terminate

 

Any ideas?

Yeah, I read them this is interfacing with a console, not a game. If I did not tell you upfront what I'm doing you would have no idea what this is for should I resubmit the topic and lie? to appease people like you who have nothing of value to bring to the table?

Listen, it's not a matter of wanting or not wanting, it's a mater of obeying the rules and conduct put forth by the forum mods.  Don't act like we're the one's being uncooperative.

There is no logic in the rule, I'm sure you are fine with that.

There is so NO.
