a question about AutoIt limitations

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm currently working on a RPG/Adventure game winth AutoIt, so i was wondering if there are any limitations/restrictions on the script size. The script's estimated size should be around 3.8MB (70000+ lines), and i know that the script's speed will slow down somewhat. So my question is Will Autoit be able to execute such huge script?

The game doesn't require additional plugins (in order to keep the cpu and memory usage as slow as possible), it uses simple built-in AutoIt functions.

Here's a snapshot on how the game will look like

Not really, i spend around half hour each day and it took me about a month to gather the resources and to type the dialogue. The only thing left is to build the game.
