Need Help With Ingame Overlay

3 posts in this topic

hi all..

i wanted to script a little program that shows up for a game called "silkroad online" like a little infobox

it should show:

current pc time & date, (so you dont have to tab out of the game everytime)

current silkroad online time (so you dont have to look it up on the homepage everytime)

theres this event called "fortress war" which starts every week on a Thursday, 19:00~21:00 Silkroad Standard Time

so what it should do is to show the time remaining till the event starts in hours and minutes. if the time reaches 1minute it then should count the seconds remaining. after that it should show how long till the event finishes.

and after that i would like it to show the date and remaining time of the next "fortress war event".

i.e

------------------------------------------------------------

16.04.2008 (my date) 17:17 (my time)

17.04.2008 (silkroad date) 06:17 (silkroad time)

hh:mm --> (time counting down till next event)

------------------------------------------------------------

after that it should be like this

------------------------------------------------------------

16.04.2008 (my date) 17:24 (my time)

17.04.2008 (silkroad date) 06:24 (silkroad time)

hh:mm --> (time counting down till event finishes)

------------------------------------------------------------

and the last part would be like this

------------------------------------------------------------

16.04.2008 (my date) 17:25 (my time)

17.04.2008 (silkroad time) 06L24 (silkroad time)

hh:mm --> (time counting down till next event)

24.04.2008 (date on which the next event starts)

-------------------------------------------------------------

all this should be displayed ingame in a little transparent window and it should if the next event is reached do the same thing again but figure out the next date on its own (not by me putting in the info somewhere)

i hope this is possible and hope that you could help me with this

i tried and tried but cant mannage to bring it to work T-T

thx ~darkxraver~

So, are you asking for 3 timers to run simultaneously in one program, or are you trying to integrate AutoIt with the game?

Edit: Also, having an ingame overlay will be near to impossible if you're not going to use a game in "Windowed" mode.

yeah all the timer should be in 1 script/window

i saw something called ragnawatch --> google it.. its an overlay for ragnarok online that shows the exp and so on.. so it prolly sould work with silkroad
