Hi there. I would like to know if I use timer in the right way, here are the codes, thanks a lot:

Code:

function myTimer()
  print "1"
end

tmer = createTimer(nil)
timer_onTimer(tmer,myTimer)
timer_setInterval(tmer, 1000)
timer_setEnabled(tmer, true)


and

Code:

count = 0

function myTimer()
  if count < 10 then
    count = count + 1
    print "running"
  else
    timer_setEnabled(tmer, false)
    print "stopped"
  end
end

tmer = createTimer(nil)
timer_onTimer(tmer,myTimer)
timer_setInterval(tmer, 1000)
timer_setEnabled(tmer, true)


I also used the following timer script in Lua. However, I couldn't not stop the timer, the "showMessage" kept popping up....
Code:

counter = 0

local function myTimer1()
  counter = counter + 1
  if counter < 1 then
  else
    timer_setEnabled(tmer,false)
    getAddressList().getMemoryRecordByDescription('General').Active=true
    getAddressList().getMemoryRecordByDescription('Change1').Active=true
    getAddressList().getMemoryRecordByDescription('Change2').Active=true
    showMessage("Stop") <---- This message keeps popping up even after I timer_setEnabled to false....
end

tmer1 = createTimer()
timer_setInterval(tmer1, 1500)
timer_onTimer(tmer1, myTimer1)
timer_setEnabled(tmer1, true)

you're using an obsolete syntax, but for now it still works

as for the last script, use
Code:
 
tmer1.enabled=false


(or give function myTimer1() a parameter and set that to disabled)

Code:
http = require("socket.http")

function timeZone()
  local now = os.time()
  return os.difftime(now, os.time(os.date('!*t',now)))
end

local ServerTime = http.request("website")
local CurTime = tonumber(ServerTime:sub(21,-6))
local MaxTime = os.time{year=2015, month=07, day=15, hour=23, min=59, sec=59, isdst=false} + timeZone()

if MaxTime>CurTime then showMessage("OBRIGADO PARA LOGIN \N AJORA TRENADOR CONTINUA") else end

if MaxTime<=CurTime then showMessage("NO PAY NO PLAY \N PAY OR FUCK OFF HAHAHAHAA...") CloseCE() else end

Why are you calling openProcess repeatedly? Stop it!
Code:
tmer.OnTimer = function(timer)
  local success = openProcess("calc.exe")
  if success then
    print("found!")
    timer.Enabled = false
  else
    -- blah
  end
end

Thx zanzer but I tried it. How I know, when user open the game? Smile

Exp;

Code:
GameTimer=createTimer(nil)
GameTimer.Interval=1000
GameTimer.OnTimer=function(GameTimer)
    local success = openProcess("game.exe")
  if success then
    UDF1.CELabel1.Caption="Game found"
    UDF1.CELabel1.Font.Color=0x006600
    GameTimer.Enabled=false
  else
    UDF1.CELabel1.Caption="Game not found"
    UDF1.CELabel1.Font.Color=0x0000A4
  end
end
GameTimer.Enabled=true

When "success" is true, the user has opened the game.

Please do not hurt me for digging in this old post.

I am trying this:

As long as a script is active, put 1 into the memory address behind a registered symbol. I get the address with another AA script. The symbol points to the right address, i can change it manually.

This is what I tried but it does not change the value:

Code:

[ENABLE]
{$lua}
tHolz = createTimer(nil, false)
tHolz.OnTimer = function(fHolz)
  print "tHolz ping"
  -- writeInteger('[_stamms]+58','1')
  getAddressList().getMemoryRecordByDescription('_stamms + 58').Value='1'
end
tHolz.Interval = 1000
tHolz.Enabled = true

{$asm}
// -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

[DISABLE]
{$lua}
tHolz.Destroy()
writeInteger('[_stamms]+58','0')
--getAddressList().getMemoryRecordByDescription('_stamms + 58').Value='0'

{$asm}


writeInteger and chaning the table entry do not work.

Where is my mistake?

Code:
'_stamms + 58'
seems more like an address than a description/name...
If you're not getting an error message that can point you to the issue then try printing some more information out eg.

Code:
tHolz.OnTimer = function(fHolz)
  print "tHolz ping"
  print('writeInteger address in decimal', getAddress('[_stamms]+58'))
  print('mem rec object address in decimal',  getAddressList().getMemoryRecordByDescription('_stamms + 58'))
  -- writeInteger('[_stamms]+58','1')
  getAddressList().getMemoryRecordByDescription('_stamms + 58').Value='1'
end

The function is not being fired. I do not get the ping and the additional info.

'_stamms + 58' is the name of the table entry. I added it to see the value at the address.

Can something affect the lua engine?

I have a timer in the table script that waits until a AOB pattern becomes available (after the level is loaded). Then an AA script is fired and that timer is being destroyed. That AA script copies the base address of another value and works well.
