    @Neilk You do not know if nobody is using ahk for the purpose brought by the OP.
    You just don't know. Period.
    And when you say that pressing two buttons (or pressing the same key 2x) is not a major inconvenience, you do realise you are saying it's an inconvenience, right?

    no doubt that people who use ahk for certain quicker inputs or more responsive inputs are at an advantage just unlucky the ingame can't compete, example is the parry one

    Because the Devs thought they could get away with not paying their bills for a year (as well as not charging players who would have gladly paid $15 a month)

    A monthly fee is NOT the reason Darkfall doesn't have more players, and the people who were going to play it will gladly pay.

    As well as putting the server in Paris instead of NY

    Those were New Dawn's mistakes, nothing gameplay related, in that area they were actually superior to AV and BPG especially until their UI guy got cancer or w.e major illness and had to quit.

    Also RoA is objectively MORE carebear than New Dawn, by like an order of magnitude. So you don't know what you're talking about.

    As to the topic at hand, I think AHK and other macro software should just be detected and auto banned like in other games because there absolutely ARE things you can do with AHK that you cannot do with RoA's built in UI.

    If anyone has a problem with that then they should explain to BPG what their macro program was doing that RoA's UI/ hotbar functionality doesn't allow

    It's pretty low I think, but I see people at EU evening times, in sanguine and in some dungeons, a vet can prolly give a better answer to this.


    Yeah this works great..... jkjk anyway

    @MaxiHori ty for script that's gonna help my shitscript which waits every time.

    @Neilk You atleast got any plans to putting a "que" in? Then my simpler script would work and AHK wouldn't need to keep track of my equip. And also you wouldn't have to press so slow.

    Atm if I press
    Staffkey + spell (two strokes, no script) It's usually the case that no spell will load because I press too fast, I'm not insanely fast and I have 100 - 120 ping.

    So it ends up being
    StaffKey + Spell + "COMN!!!" + Spell

    So that waiting time is a problem in itself, the game is unresponsive..

    Yeah bindings are the First problem in this game, bpg makes bindings Better but not enough. This makes new players leave. Expecially if they have to use ahk to compete.

    tbh having to do this annoying setup is one of the hurdles that keep me from logging in, that and lazy! and time! @Neilk

    What kept me from even trying RoA the past year was the games clunkiness /unresponsiveness. Made my account on freemium release or some free weekend or something. So what @Methodico is saying is true, you're definitely loosing a % of potential players to these issues.

    The problem is 'good' is subjective. What works for one person might not work for another. Ask 10 RoA players what their binds are, and you might get 10 different answers.

    BPG already tried changing the default bindings, and it seems like a fair amount of folks hate them (I'm not a big fan either). But I'd wager that making default bindings that 75% or even 2/3s of players thought were fine would be a monumental task.

    Because it's a design choice, pressing one button instead of two is removing some of the skill involved in the game. And I repeat nobody is using AHK for this purpose.

    You end up spamming transfer button bc you'll never know if it switched staff and the second activated or it just
    You just end up spamming transfer button because you are never sure if it switched to staff from weapon/bow and the second activated or it just swallowed the key press. Fighting clumsy controls is not skill.

    You cannot bind multiple shields/weapons same slot. Is that skill to?
    What about having first available not working when weapon change is needed?

    and the list goes on... keep pretending.

    i didnt see that part about :nobody uses that lol

    tbh, i just want ahk to equip a slow staff and cast ray with 1 key press. of i end p doing that, i will prob use that on everything.

    also you can now hold your spell after you release it when the casting time has not been completely filled. almost all of my offensive spellas are on auto cast.

    i definetely need to start using ahk too to w-key... i mean 1 key press every spell.
