Getting started

Post by Anfet » Thu Jul 05, 2012 11:13 am

You've downloaded tracker and now you wanna use it.

First of all, you should switch it to english. Run tracker once, then go to it's folder and locate config.ini file.
there you will find parameter "lang=ru". change it to "lang=en".
Then restart tracker and you will get english version.

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

Here are some basics that will help you understand how program works.
First of all. It's a clicker! That's right. It has brains, it has scripts, but it's a clicker.

It is gathering data via screen image. Nothing else.
This means first of all you must select game windows for your characters. This is done via "Windows" option in tracker.
The "M" - means your main character. The "2" - "9" - boxed characters (i.e. buffers/healers/assisters). Please note that while tracker can manage full party, I do recommend only duo (main + buffer) or trio (main + buffer + assist) use.

To check what game window is selected - use "Test" button. The window will be highlighted and display areas where you should position player/party/target and group frames.
After this is set, tracker will show your character and boxed character information in it's main window. If you have target selected or in group, you will see that data also.
Here is a small description of windows, in-game frames, what leads where and how they should be positioned.

REMEMBER. To kill mobs tracker must see them. It indicates their HP near yours with small red text. If you don't see them, simply move target frame in the indicated area until tracker find it.

Inner workings of tracker

Post by Anfet » Tue Jul 31, 2012 3:59 pm

Inner workings
Being a clicker, tracker is practically very simple.
To understand how it works, simply close the screen at center, and try to play.

How tracker works
To select targets tracker needs macros on panels. "/target Mobname" - is correct macro for targeting.
To kill mobs, tracker needs to see it's HP and radar.
To heal yourself/party tracker need macros (or use mouse) to select you (/target %self) or group members (their names).

Setup window
Tracker is being run by scripts. Script is a collection on tasks. Task is a condition and actions that will run when condition is met.
A typical script usually involves killing a mob. Lets see how tracker handles it.
To kill a mob we should check if we have it selected.
This is done by this small task:

Code: Select all

If Player Target HP > 0 (every second)
 - Use skill (0,1,1)
This tasks instructs tracker to use F1 (0,1,1 - character 0, main, first panel, first skill) when main characters target HP > 0%;
You can see this task on highlighted on screenshot. It's a bit more complex tho.

If we have no target it would be good to select one. This can be done by such task:

Code: Select all

No target (player) (every second)
 - Use skill (0,1,2)
On F2 we put Next target skill.

By combining other tasks (that you can create yourself, or use Auto setup) you can achieve desired effect.
