Intro to the maxing program

The most common question I get is “How do you do that so fast?”  To which I usually confess, “I wrote a program that helps me.”

At some point I hope to write a comprehensive description but for now I’ll just go over the basics.

The program does not hack YoVille in any way.  It does not use WPE, Cheat Engine, or any other program that modifies the behavior of YoVille.  Instead, it pulls pixels off the screen and moves the mouse and clicks.  It works through the normal YoVille user interface.

The best way to see how it works is to watch the video of how it looks on my screen when it’s running:

Each game is shifted a little bit to the right, such that the three buttons for rock, paper, and scissors just peek out from under the newer games.  And because the windows are semi-transparent near the bottom, it’s possible to detect the green check mark indicating whether the other player has chosen, even for the games that are mostly covered.  Because the games are stacked in this way, they can be closed when they are ready, instead of the earlier games having to wait for the later ones to be cleared.  This makes it faster for the maxees.

Another key feature, is how it handles all the other prompts besides just rock-paper-scissors game requests.  If a tic-tac-toe game request comes in, it will automatically decline, and with incoming gift notifications it will click ‘cancel’ which postpones opening the gifts.  It will also accept buddy requests and decline trade requests.

One of the nice side benefits is that I can talk while maxing.  The program automatically moves the mouse, but the keyboard works normally.  The game is mostly covered by RPS games, but I’ve arranged it so that the chat log is visible, so I can talk to people in the room.

That’s all for now!
