Variable reading and timeout loop

Post by Dalac » Fri Jun 29, 2018 1:30 am

Hi everyone! I'm just got iMacros cause I need it to create a bot for my economical simulator. In this game, you have to fight 10 times a day and work once to get paid.
If there are people who want to help, I would really appriciate it.
The theory it's simple, but I have no ideea how to write the code.

My plan is to write this bot that it can automatically fight 10 times, with a break of 10 minutes between each fight. I could do this by simply recording the macro, but there are some problems.
I can't beat someone who has more energy than me. So, I'm looking for a code that can read my victim's energy, and if the number is bigger than 5 (for example), than return and find another one who has less.
I've put here a printscreen that shows how this menu looks. The code should read vitim's energy from this menu, check if it is bigger than 5 and return to the list for searching another one with less energy. Or if it's possible to figure out from the begining the one that has less than 5% energy, why not.
I've thought that going by inspect element in chrome may help me. I located the line where energy is displayed, but I have no ideea how to write the code.

I've started building this code, but it can only do simple tasks cause I dont know how to improve it yet.

You can notice here that I copied the tasks because there are 10 fights to do and I want the macro to keep running. As I said, there is a timeout of 10min between fights, and I added that with a difference of couple seconds
so I'm safe from getting banned, cause they could check that I'm doing my fights every day at the same interval. I will keep editing this timeout.
So, besides variable reading, I would also need a loop with an timeout of 10min between each task group.

I really want to learn some coding commands, as a begginer. If you guys can help me with that, I would really appriciate it.

As a summary, I need a code for reading variables who can chose the victim that has the energy under 5% and a loop one, with a timeout of 10mins between each fight, who would simplify that long code.
A tested fight, is defined by that:

Code: Select all

Thank you all. I'm hoping for a solution.
