That's cheating


Believe it or not, someone did tell me it was cheating once and HE was serious. laff

I find it hard to believe (and i might be wrong) that the guys in my day, were all script writers. Did Prestone write scripts? Didiskalos? Dr. Who? Bob? Intrepid? The list goes on. Maybe they did, maybe they didnt.

Yes I did write tradewars scripts for TeraTerm pro. Hundreds. SSS port exp gain, pwarp adj, ztm, colo sniper, cashing, attack, reload wall for chess, All kinds. I once wrote a cashing script for unlimited games which Night Hawk greatly improved upon and got it to run for an entire weekend without hanging up. Scripts for Dupe Chess running multiple account at once. For me half the fun of tradewars was writing the scripts! The Reverend wrote many great scripts. Dr. Who coded some super advanced scripts.

There were some macro pounding monkey leach players, like Res for example, but imo for the most part all of the top players back in the day were very intelligent people and could pretty easily script if/whenever they needed to.
