Ashen Empires Anti-Macro Breaker Released

I decided about a week ago that making potions in Ashen Empires is to cumbersome and missed the days of not having any sort of macro protection in game. It is also a bummer that they do not allow a character with a maxed trade skill such as alchemy to produce more than five at once. It did not take long for me to commit myself to breaking this anti-macro system of theirs. The system uses a random set of two or three in game items which have to be matched out of six items. I could have made my detection pixel based but instead chose to find differences in copied bitmaps sent to picture boxes in the program. I will have to attempt a simple x/y coordinate pixel color match some other time.

The program needs a desktop resolution of 1440 by 900 and the game out of maxed state by using alt+enter to work correctly. I also recommend setting the max particle setting in game to zero for better accuracy. There should not be an empty black space while doing the trade skill because it would trigger a non-stop false 100% anti-macro screen match. I would also make sure that the craft window does not show up right where the anti-macro screen does by setting it to the side before turning it on and close all macro bars. I tested it with two different computers(slow PC/old CRT monitor, fast PC/wide flat LCD) and it worked fine.

When it finds a match of the anti-macro screen it sends the keyboard F10 function key and when finished with clicking correct pictures it sends the F9 key. These are what you should use in your macro program for stopping/pausing(F10) and playing/continuing(F9). I included a very good macro program I found from PlanetSourceCode.com but changed a few things in it to work much better and work with the anti-macro breaker program. It only records mouse movements and clicks but does so very well unlike some others because I can pause the macro at any point and continue easily where it left off.

So all you old AE macroers or new have fun macroing once again!

I added a video of it automatically clicking the correct pictures quickly along with the download link below.

HEY!

I was trying really hard to get your program to work and it just wont work.

desktop resolution is 1440 by 900 and game is 800 x 600 so there is no black, and it NEVER picks the right ones, and half the time it doesnt trigger?!

i really am impressed with this program and really want to get it to work for me!

please help me out!

I just tested with both 800x600 and the other higher resolution in game with both working just fine. I bet the problem you are having is because you are not alt+entering when in game to get out full screen. When you are in game just hit alt+enter and don't move the game window and it should be working for you. If I can get it working on very old CRT monitor and slow PC then I'm certain you should get it to work as well..tell me if this helps at all.
