PostPosted: Fri Apr 28, 2017 11:16 am    Post subject: New to lua and am trying to/cant make an automated script Reply with quote

I got tired of halo online not saving my sensitivity so i'm looking to make a automatic script that...

loads with the game on launch (if possible)
is not visible
waits 20 seconds
sets value of 9 pointers to 9
closes

I'd like to also know how the script works too in hopes that i can get my foot in the door with CE lua scripting. Been working on probably laughable scripts that do nothing close to what the goal is. I understand the basics mostly.

Thanks for your time! I really have nowhere else to turn to besides more hours of guesswork.

Code:
myForm = createForm(false)
myForm.Height = 120
myForm.Width = 450
myForm.Caption = 'Sensitivity setter'
myForm.Position = 'poScreenCenter'
myForm.ShowInTaskBar = 'stAlways'

myLabel = createLabel(myForm)
myLabel.AnchorSideLeft.Control = myForm
myLabel.AnchorSideTop.Control = myForm
myLabel.Height = 40
myLabel.BorderSpacing.Left = 10
myLabel.BorderSpacing.Top = 10
myLabel.Caption = 'Waiting for game process...'
myLabel.Font.Color = 0x8000 --'clGreen'
myLabel.Font.Height = -32
myLabel.Font.Name = 'Tahoma'

myForm.OnClose = function() closeCE() end
myForm.show()


if setSensitivityTimer==nil then setSensitivityTimer = createTimer(myForm,false) end
setSensitivityTimer.Interval = 20000 -- milliseconds
setSensitivityTimer.OnTimer =
 function (t1)
   t1.destroy()

   -- EDIT THIS
   writeInteger()  -- pointer 1
   writeInteger()  -- pointer 2
   writeInteger()  -- pointer 3
   writeInteger()  -- pointer 4
   writeInteger()  -- pointer 5
   writeInteger()  -- pointer 6
   writeInteger()  -- pointer 7
   writeInteger()  -- pointer 8
   writeInteger()  -- pointer 9

   myLabel.Caption = 'Updated :)'
   createTimer().OnTimer = function (t2) t2.destroy(); closeCE() end
 end


function onOpenProcess(processid)
  myLabel.Caption = 'Waiting 20 seconds...'
  setSensitivityTimer.Enabled = true
end

-- EDIT THIS
getAutoAttachList().add("game process name here")


Of course you have to edit few lines.

Change
writeInteger() -- pointer 1
to
writeInteger('pointerstring 1 here', 9) -- pointer 1


If it is a float value, use writeFloat or writeDouble.


Then you can save it as CETRAINER.

well now I have this and it works well except it doesn't change any values, i'm sorry to bother again btw but I can't tell what I did wrong. :/

Code:
 myForm = createForm(false)
myForm.Height = 120
myForm.Width = 450
myForm.Caption = 'Sensitivity setter'
myForm.Position = 'poScreenCenter'
myForm.ShowInTaskBar = 'stAlways'

myLabel = createLabel(myForm)
myLabel.AnchorSideLeft.Control = myForm
myLabel.AnchorSideTop.Control = myForm
myLabel.Height = 40
myLabel.BorderSpacing.Left = 10
myLabel.BorderSpacing.Top = 10
myLabel.Caption = 'Waiting for game process...'
myLabel.Font.Color = 0x8000 --'clGreen'
myLabel.Font.Height = -32
myLabel.Font.Name = 'Tahoma'

myForm.OnClose = function() closeCE() end
myForm.show()


if setSensitivityTimer==nil then setSensitivityTimer = createTimer(myForm,false) end
setSensitivityTimer.Interval = 1000 -- milliseconds
setSensitivityTimer.OnTimer =
 function (t1)
   t1.destroy()

   -- EDIT THIS
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067D020]+10]", 7) -- pointer 1
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067D0C8]+1c]", 7) -- pointer 2
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067D1DC]+24]", 7) -- pointer 3
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067D798]+24]", 7) -- pointer 4
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067DAC8]+24]", 7) -- pointer 5
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067DC08]+24]", 7) -- pointer 6
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067DDD4]+24]", 7) -- pointer 7
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0017ADD4]+484]", 7) -- pointer 8
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067C624]+4e4]", 7) -- pointer 9

   myLabel.Caption = 'Updated :)'
   createTimer().OnTimer = function (t2) t2.destroy(); closeCE() end
 end


function onOpenProcess(processid)
  myLabel.Caption = 'Waiting 1 seconds...'
  setSensitivityTimer.Enabled = true
end

-- EDIT THIS
getAutoAttachList().add("eldorado.exe")

what happens when you open game process and execute this script:
Code:
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067D020]+10]", 7) -- pointer 1
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067D0C8]+1c]", 7) -- pointer 2
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067D1DC]+24]", 7) -- pointer 3
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067D798]+24]", 7) -- pointer 4
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067DAC8]+24]", 7) -- pointer 5
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067DC08]+24]", 7) -- pointer 6
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067DDD4]+24]", 7) -- pointer 7
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0017ADD4]+484]", 7) -- pointer 8
   writeInteger("[[eldorado.exe+0067C624]+4e4]", 7) -- pointer 9



Maybe you have to wait more than 20 seconds before executing?

Try removing the outside square brackets. Many people mistakenly dereference the pointer path one more time than what's necessary.

Ok i just tested it without the brackets like so
Code:
myForm = createForm(false)
myForm.Height = 120
myForm.Width = 450
myForm.Caption = 'Sensitivity setter'
myForm.Position = 'poScreenCenter'
myForm.ShowInTaskBar = 'stAlways'

myLabel = createLabel(myForm)
myLabel.AnchorSideLeft.Control = myForm
myLabel.AnchorSideTop.Control = myForm
myLabel.Height = 40
myLabel.BorderSpacing.Left = 10
myLabel.BorderSpacing.Top = 10
myLabel.Caption = 'Waiting for game process...'
myLabel.Font.Color = 0x8000 --'clGreen'
myLabel.Font.Height = -32
myLabel.Font.Name = 'Tahoma'

myForm.OnClose = function() closeCE() end
myForm.show()


if setSensitivityTimer==nil then setSensitivityTimer = createTimer(myForm,false) end
setSensitivityTimer.Interval = 1000 -- milliseconds
setSensitivityTimer.OnTimer =
 function (t1)
   t1.destroy()

   -- EDIT THIS
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067D020]", 7) -- pointer 1
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067D0C8]", 7) -- pointer 2
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067D1DC]", 7) -- pointer 3
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067D798]", 7) -- pointer 4
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067DAC8]", 7) -- pointer 5
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067DC08]", 7) -- pointer 6
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067DDD4]", 7) -- pointer 7
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0017ADD4]", 7) -- pointer 8
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067C624]", 7) -- pointer 9

   myLabel.Caption = 'Updated :)'
   createTimer().OnTimer = function (t2) t2.destroy(); closeCE() end
 end


function onOpenProcess(processid)
  myLabel.Caption = 'Waiting 1 seconds...'
  setSensitivityTimer.Enabled = true
end

-- EDIT THIS
getAutoAttachList().add("eldorado.exe")
and the funny thing is it DOES do something but not what I needed, it inverts my aim and it sets autolook centering to on. XD are the end brackets supposed to be the the offset? I did research on how the syntax goes and that's what I guessed. at least I definitely know I edited the autoattach right. My sensitivity does change any time I change any of the pointers I listed and nothing else. very odd...
*edit: just tested with no brackets and that insta-crashes the game.

you are funny Very Happy try this one


Code:
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067D020]+10", 7) -- pointer 1
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067D0C8]+1c", 7) -- pointer 2
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067D1DC]+24", 7) -- pointer 3
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067D798]+24", 7) -- pointer 4
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067DAC8]+24", 7) -- pointer 5
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067DC08]+24", 7) -- pointer 6
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0067DDD4]+24", 7) -- pointer 7
   writeInteger("[eldorado.exe+0017ADD4]+484", 7) -- pointer 8
