Hello!
I need your help to write the mini-script.
I have an address 0019D2ED with byte type.
I need to decrease value by 2 when I press hotkey ` (lefter from 1 key).
I did it all and it works fine, but I need to add rule.
If value == 255 or value <= 2 then my hotkey do nothing with it (to let it pass new cycle from 255 to 2)
Otherwise game crashes if hotkey is pressed between 254 and 2.
Got the idea?
Thanks for your help!

val = readBytes(0x19d2ed, 1)
if val == 255 or val <= 2 then return end
otherwise decrease val and write it back to memory

But I have no code at all.
I just have table in my CE whith needed address and set hotkey for it to decrease the value when I press it.
Trying to execute just your string doesn't gives any result.

I am newbie in this theme at all.[img][/img]

Ah, yeah, the GUI hotkey doesn't let you add conditions and afaik you can't have it run a lua script instead/before/after. you did post in lua scripting so I assumed you had done it in lua Smile

I just woke up but i think this would be correct.
Code:
local VK_BACK_QUOTE=192
createHotkey(function()
  print('hello')
  val = readBytes(0x19d2ed, 1)
  if val == 255 or val <= 2 then return end
  val = val - 2
  writeBytes(0x19d2ed, val)
end, VK_BACK_QUOTE)

It works fine!
Thank you!
Can you help me with the option of restarting the lua script without closing CE?
When I change the line (for example to check if it works) "val = val - 2" to "val = val" and press Execute script - it still decreases the value.

put it in an AA script with {$lua} at the top (so it parses lua code rather than assembly) and on enable do
some_global_hotkey_for_xxx = CreateHotkey ...

and on disable do some_global_hotkey_for_xxx.destroy()

you can move the local VK_BACK_QUOTE=192 in the function() or leave it outside or just replace VK_BACK_QUOTE with 192 and leave it out (good luck remembering what key 192 is though if you come back later and don't remember what you used lol)

Did all my testing with closing / re opening CE Smile
I guess it will be my last question.
In CE hotkeys I could set MB 5 button (extra button on my mouse) but I can't find in google which is this button as VK_
Can you help with that too? Smile

easiest way is create a hotkey with just mb_5 , then copy the cheat entry and paste it into notepad.
then find the keycode in there

Did that you said and got that KEY is 6.
<Hotkeys>
<Hotkey>
<Action>Decrease Value</Action>
<Keys>
<Key>6</Key>
</Keys>
<Value>1</Value>
<ID>0</ID>
</Hotkey>
</Hotkeys>

local VK_MB_5=6 works fine
thanks Smile

createHotkey(function()
print('hello')
val = readBytes(0x19d2ed, 1)
if val == 255 or val <= 2 then return end
val = val - 2
writeBytes(0x19d2ed, val)
end, VK_BACK_QUOTE)
