Automatiing tedious things in FFXIVFollow

I just found out about this open source application called SIKULI:

http://groups.csail.mit.edu/uid/sikuli/

It seems to make it very easy to automatic simple GUI based tasks. If FFXIV has anything like FFXI's PlayOnline (logging in took forever!), or FFXI's simple crafting, then it looks like this application would come in handy.

Promoting botting? This should be good.

I'd love it if Square made logging into their game a twenty step process, and would never use a program to automate that. Really.

Although "botting" is frowned upon, I wouldn't blame anyone for using a program to log into the game for you. Going through Play Online Viewer was a major pain. I hated it. I really did.

Yea, I could never understand why they made this stupid log in process either. As for automating actions in FFXIV, well good luck with that. You'll have to manually trigger every attack, so I think we're moving away from automating anything.

Remember they intended for playonline to host more than 1 playable game.

It was supposed to be something like what steam is for valve.

If it could manage and upkeep multiple games at a time as well as be a reliable way to communicate with friends, then it wouldn't be as stupid.

but it doesn't and it is. get used to it and be happy it will not be used in the future.

POV would have been fine with me if it was something like:

Launch POV, log in with your user name and pword and you immediately get 3 options:

Start FF11
Start Tetra Master
My Account

Based on your short description it seems alot like autoit.

AutoIT is also used to automate gui based tasks with a simple scripting language.

It is also what the original fishing bots were written in.
