World of Warcraft text exporting

5 posts in this topic

I understand that you can export via text from WoW to Autoit enabling you to make scripts with variables from WoW. Here is an example of what I'm talking about.

Say I use the "unitmana" to get how much rage my warrior has. The value is 15 how do you export the value to Autoit is it even possible? My last question is if all of this can happen does WoW instantly update text with new values and such when they happen?

What you're going to want to do is write an addon, that will store the unitmana as a variable, this will cause that variable, to be stored in an actual file you can read from. For more information on how to do this, I recommend looking for WoW Travel Bot in the Example Scripts and read on how they use an addon called ThermoBinaryLoc to get their character location.

Thank you very much. I suspected it may be possible since I saw that bot you are talking about, I just wasn't sure on what way can you record and export variables. I will take a closer looker at the bot and continue researching how to accomplish this. If I succede all the hours of work is worth it because it will save many more hours of repetitve button smashing.. it's taking a toll on my hands.

I've spent the better of the day trying to figure out on how to export variables from WoW to autoit with no success. I've read that to export data from WoW you need to do it after you shut down WoW, so this means variables don't update dynamicaly. Then we all seen the few bots out there from autoit that seem to be reading text data from WoW dynamically as it happens. How is this achieved I can't figure it out. I already have some addons for WoW where there are savedvariables.lua and I don't see them update dynamically to events in WoW. I just look at the file as the game is running.

Say for Unitmana("player") to get my warriors rage value where do I insert this script so it can be read dynamically and have autoit read the variable value? How is this accomplished? Thanks.
