DO NOT USE A MACRO IN THE LEAGUE. By writing this post I'm not advocating the use of a macro, I'm just attempting to clear up a lot of misconception.

Seeing as though people are so annoyed by this, I'm going to show people how to make a macro. Before that though, a quick word about them.

A macro DOES NOT MAKE YOU A BETTER PLAYER! This is a massive misconception about them and it's simply not true. It's a view held by people who have never used a macro before, I held it before I'd used one. All it does for me is stop me having to spam X and space together when in a 'pressball' situation, when double bouncing and when wall dragging.

Not everyone will be able to wall drag and double bounce even with a macro. I fail a lot of the time. The reason for this is technique. You still have to have the right technique in order to achieve this. As everyone knows haxball is all about angles and if your angles aren't right, you're not going to do very well. It's exactly the same when using a macro.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a great haxball player and so my technique is awful. This is why a lot of the time you see me failing with the use of a macro. My failure rate of double bounces and wall drags is the same as when I'm not using a macro.


Now I've got that out of the way, here's how to make one.

First of all you need a piece of software called AutoHotKey, specifically the version called AutoHotKey L. This version allows for more commands.

Once installed, right click on your desktop and select New ---> AutoHotKey script. Name the script something like "Haxball Macro". You then need to edit the code in notepad, so right click the new script and click "Edit script".

In the macro I used, I have two commands. One for 4 quick kicks and one for 2 quick kicks. The 4 kick version is activated when I press C and is useful for pressball situations, 2 kicks is activated when I press Z and is useful for double bounces and wall drags. The code I used is this;

Code:
/*
Use ScrollLock to toggle this script on/off
*/

;splashtext

Progress, B1 w400 cwFFFFFF fs18 zh0, Use ScrollLock to toggle the script`n On/Off, , , Arial
Sleep 3000
Progress, Off


~Tab::
if ( GetKeyState("ScrollLock", "T") ) ; this will be 'true' if ScrollLock is toggled 'on'
Suspend, On
Else
send {}
return

~Enter::Suspend, Off

;double kick
$z::
if ( GetKeyState("ScrollLock", "T") ) ; this will be 'true' if ScrollLock is toggled 'on'
{send, {x down}
sleep, 10
send, {x up}
sleep, 25
send, {x down}
sleep, 10
send, {x up}
sleep, 300
}
else send z
return

;rapid fire (4 kicks in succession)
$c::
if ( GetKeyState("ScrollLock", "T") ) ; this will be 'true' if ScrollLock is toggled 'on'
{
send, {x down}
sleep, 5
send, {x up}
sleep, 5
send, {x down}
sleep, 5
send, {x up}
sleep, 5
send, {x down}
sleep, 5
send, {x up}
sleep, 5
send, {x down}
sleep, 5
send, {x up}
sleep, 5
}
else send c
return





;startup for RED
F1::
sleep 1000
{
send {Right Down}
sleep, 700
send {Right Up}
send {Down Down}
sleep, 1100
send {Down Up}
send {Up Down}{Right Down}
sleep, 1630
send {Up Up}{Right Up}
send {Left Down}{Down Down}
sleep, 100 ;200
send {Left Up}{Down Up}

sleep, 500

send {Right Down}{Down Down}
sleep, 400
send {Right Up}{Down Up}
}
return

;startup for BLUE
F2::
sleep 1000
{
send {Left Down}
sleep, 700
send {Left Up}
send {Down Down}
sleep, 1100
send {Down Up}
send {Up Down}{Left Down}
sleep, 1630
send {Up Up}{Left Up}
send {Right Down}{Down Down}
sleep, 100 ;200
send {Right Up}{Down Up}
; The Fake ^
send {Right Down}{Up Down}
sleep, 50
send {Right Up}{Up Up}
send {Up Down}
sleep, 52
send {Up Down}{LeftDown}
sleep 120
send {Up Up}{Left Up}
send {Left Down}
sleep 10
send {Left Up}
send, {x down}
sleep, 1
send, {x up}
send {Left Down}
sleep, 400
send {Left Up}
send {Left Down}{Down Down}
sleep, 100
send {Left Up}{Down Up}
send {Left Down}
sleep, 500
send {Left Up}
}
return

A reminder will pop up to tell you that scroll lock activates the macro.

Done! You're now ready to use a macro.

Why not play without it if it doesn't make you any better? You know, play with the same tools as everyone else.

Everyone has the ability to use a macro, so it is using the same tools as everyone else has at their disposal.

And I use it because spamming x and space is horrible, pressing a macro is much easier and has the same effect.

it doesnt have the same effect

and any unfair advantage over other players is called cheating and should be acted against

you as admin, instead of using a macro to avoid being on the most SHIT players in the game and using this for a poor excuse, you should have talked with the other admins and updated the rules yourselves. fucking hero

and its not something that everyone has at their disposal,

the less people know about macro's, the better

the more people know about it, the more will start using one

I don't see anything wrong with using a macro. There's a difference of opinion there and if you can't see it then that isn't my problem.

Question mase, have you ever used a macro? I was as outraged as you when I first heard about macros, but after using one I realised my reaction was completely ridiculous and I had thought that it had a larger effect than it actually did.

opc I'm sorry but you're trippin' bro. Macro makes tricks that involve double bounce and wall rockets much easier. It is also much easier to do the 'tank' move near the post(or anywhere else) to push the ball past the GK.

Okay, people do exaggerate the effect of it a bit. But saying that it is not an advantage over other players is hmm... funny?

I read this guide and it works, I been trolling in Pubs and FM rooms Very Happy and in speedgoal I am a tank because I can rocket, without Macro's I wouldn't be able to rocket on speedgoal.
