Help with a mouse cursor question

Recommended Posts

Hello guys and gals.

I'm kinda new to all this scripting and especially autoit.

Well I started out easy and made a simple script for foraging in a game called Star Wars Galaxies.

Script below:

;StarWarsGalaxies Forager Version 2 with Auto Delete



$i = 0


If WinActive( "Star Wars Galaxies", "" ) Then

Send("{w down}") ;Walk Forward

Sleep ("1000")

MouseClick ( "right" , 392, 627, 1 ) ;Right Click Space where they go into inventory


send("{2 down}") ;once Right clicked this 2 deletes all enzymes

send("{2 up}")


MouseClick ( "left" , 463, 629, 1 ) ;If not an Enzyme this closes Data Disk Info Close Screen -X-


Sleep ("100")

MouseClickDrag ( "left" , 392, 627, 328, 627, 1) ;Drag map to backpack (mapx,mapy,backpackx,backpacky)


Send("{w up}") ;Stop Walking forward


Send("{n down}") ;Created a /forage macro and mapped it to N, this triggers forage macro /forage

Send("{n up}")



Until $i = 1

And it works well.

After a couple of hours sitting and watching TV cause the script uses my mouse, I set myself up to see if I could find someone to answer a question for me.

Which lead me to this forum.

I'm running Star Wars Galaxies in a window that is 1024X7xx, If that should be of any help.

Well my question is:

If it's possible to make the script or editing in options so I can use my mouse, while the script is running in the background, so I can surf on the internet, watch a movie or do other things?

As it is right now it uses my mouse, so I cant do one of the above things or anything at all other than watch it.

Thanks in advance and Regards

There may be another way.. I'm not sure if this will work for a game, but at work I had this problem, and got around it by using SendMessage. Control & _GuiCtrl_ functions didn't work properly with the program I needed to automate, and I didn't want to use MouseClick and Send, because it was just too unreliable. So I spent some time figuring out what messages were being sent to the window and controls with Winspector (Google it). Then, after some trial and error, I was able to do everything I needed with a bunch of SendMessages.
