How to install scripts:

Before you start, open up your Folder Options from control panel and make sure you "Show hidden files" The quickest way for this is to simple go to your search bar in the start menu or Cortana and search for "Folder Options". Alternatively you can go to Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> File Explorer Options (Usually its right under it before clicking that as a fast alternative to go right to it) -> Click the View tab -> scroll through until you find the option to change for "Show Hidden Files, Folders, and Drives"

Installing scripts is very simple actually. First find the path to your Scripts folder usually found here:

C:\Users\*username*\AppData\Local\Funcom\Anarchy Online\*randomnumbers*\Anarchy Online\scripts\

Note: You can also find your default folder by opening the AO Launcher, hit settings and click on the GUI tab. From here you can copy/paste the location into the top bar of your explorer (where it tracks your folder navigation). You can also change the default location from here.

You simply find your downloaded/made scripts, and copy them over to the "script" folder. You have just installed your scripts =)

Moving on...

How to use scripts:

Using scripts are very easy. All you need to do is go in-game, change the "Talk in Channel" to the channel you wish to post your script in, and type either:

/script 'filename'



Without the ' of course.

If you find your script not working, please make sure that you add the file extension if it is not a stand alone 'file'. An example of this is shown below:

First Example:
Filename = CA
Extension = File - (In other-words, no extension.)



/script ca

Executes script and places the recruitment ad in the current window and current channel.

Second Example:
Filename = CA
Extension = Text - (.txt)



/script ca.txt

Executes script and places the recruitment ad in the current window and current channel.

Third Example:
Filename = Shop
Extension = Text - (.txt)



/script Shop

This will *NOT* execute the script. You will get an error saying it is unable to find the script specified.

Now, if you do not like having to type .txt or any other extension, it isn't to hard to change the file's extension to a stand-alone file. To do this, first find the file. Once you have found it, right-click it and select 'edit'. Now go under 'File' and click 'Save As'. You can edit the file name to what you think is easiest/orderly to type in game or leave it what you originally set it to. Below that, you should see 'Save as type:'. You want to drop down the menu and select 'All Files' and this will save it as a stand-alone file. Now you will be able to enjoy using this script with a bit more ease.

Additionally, you can combine the in-game macro system to allow you to have a single click script. For example:

/macro Recruitment /ca

This will stick a macro onto your mouse, which you can then place onto your hotbar (preferably in an area you won't accidentally click/quick key, specially if you have an infinite loop script).

This concludes the installation and use of your scripts guide. Have fun with your scripts!
