[macro] Resident Evil 5 - Abandoned Cave farming

Post by tarrant_01 » Sun Jul 17, 2011 10:43 pm

I've got it all working and set up. It's currently running and farming the two gems from the beginning of the abandoned cave level. The keyboard and mouse recorders in Ubuntu were too damn confusing so I just hard coded it all and bound everything to a key. Here's my macro code:

Code: Select all

MACRO F12
#Macro for farming the jewel pieces in the abandoned cave in RE5. It's best to have an infinite #ammo machine gun for this because it's coded to rely on the recoil of the weapon to hit the #ceiling gem, so ammo is wasted.
#Do a chapter select and pick the abandoned cave level. Start it make sure a machine gun is equipped then quit and say yes to all of the prompts. Then you can use this macro.
#Key bindings used are
#Start: 2
#Lstick up: e
#Lstick right: f
#Rstick up: HOME
#Directional pad assigned to standard keys...up, down, left, right ... only down and left are used
#L1: q
#R1: y
#Square: j
#Cross: m
#Circle: k

Just copy and paste the code section as many times as you want it to harvest the level. Times are a bit longer than they should be because the menu's aren't always immediately responsive. I wanted to have a bit of cushion. I'll post a video tonight of it running.

I do realize now though that the time it took me to do all of this, I could have probably earned all the money I needed myself, but where's the fun in that?

Edit: tweaked the code a bit, it gets hung up in the inventory screen sometimes. For some reason rarely a button press doesnt get acknowledged by the game. Also adjusted the route a bit.
