Well, I see some people are discussing/sharing macros, and I think that's a good thing. Nobody likes the tedium of clicking, and not everyone has the ability to write good macros/scripts to handle that while they are there.

REMEMBER - it is ILLEGAL to go afk while macroing. If a eGenesis staff member catches you, you could be banned for breaking the terms of service.

With that in mind, let's make this a normal page of the wiki.

All macros are T5ok small.gif unless otherwise specified.

AC Tool

There are a couple of issues with AC Tool that, once you fix, make it very easy and good to use.

  • Windows XP, start the program in Administrator Mode.
  • If you get the error "Could not find Decal's MEMLOCKS.XML", just click Macro > Asheron's Call 1 Settings > Skip AC Mouse Memory Writes
  • Setting <f2> and <f3> as start and stop hot keys will help fix most of the issues of "run away" macros.


  • T5N.gif [A Click in Time]
    • Written by GarethDahm in Tale4 for Windows.
    • Free Application!
    • Position a small arrow anywhere on your screen.
    • Set the timer.
    • Let it ease your RSI factor!

  • Ghostmouse (Windows Executable) - Simple old freeware program that records your mouse movements/clicks. Can adjust the speed with a click in Options, if necessary. Records in real time, no scripts to edit, easy for anyone to use. Program no longer made or supported, found in old archived backup CD. (Screenshot)

Personally I like autohotkey because it's freeware and is still being updated - Blogot

I second the Autohotkey recommendation, it has some extremely powerful features but is still fast and lightweight, and new features are being added all the time. - Dragyn

Personally I like AutoIt 3.0 it is freeware updated alot and it is very powerful allows macroing of almost anything windows - Ledeanna

I second the AutoIt recommendation, it is very powerful as well, easy to code and allows compiling the scripts for use by people who want to macro but feel not competent enough to write their own or who dont want to install the scripting software. ~Anguz - Note - AutoHotKey also allows you to compile an exe for machines with out AHK installed. ~Jhnny

Added SCAR Divi, its similar to ACtool, but in my opinion much better. It has very nice support for Bitmap searching, and even Bitmask searching. The bitmaps can be converted to strings, and loaded directly in from the script (Rather then saved as images). Lots of other features, but people will have to find them. SCAR also supports bitmap masks, and Deformable template models, which allows the macro to find and identify multiple images, or peices of text, even when the colours, position, or even size has changed. Its possible to make fairly advanced macros that will work regardless of window positions ingame, or resolution.--Kinslayer 08:32, 29 August 2009 (EST)

Running without Windows?

A lot of the macro effort has gone towards programs for windows. The windows version of atitd can be run using (run Windows applications on Linux, BSD, Solaris and Mac OS X).

Veggietales and autohotkey work to some extent using this emulator along with the windows emulation of atitd.

Autohotkey 'keys' need to be changed to ones that work (Scrolllock, Numpad up/down/left/pageup/down buttons seem to work on ubuntu10). Recording and playback work only on windows emulated programs, but that's enough to save you from windows.

Many of the Macros from Tale 4 still work. Please copy them to this page once you have verified them.
