AutoHotKey Sync Script.

I'm not sure what GGG's view on AutoHotKey scripts is, but I hope that this script in particular can be shared and used without fear of banning.

If you are like me and frequently have syncing issues, I have created a simple script that will allow you to re-sync at the push of a button.

This script utilizes the /oos function in the chat window to re-sync the client with the server.
Many deaths in PoE are caused by de-syncing issues, and can be a right pain in the arse.

How To:

The script is bound to the left Alt key. Simply press it to re-sync your client.

To change the bound key to something else, simply change Alt in the script to your desired key.

List of keys -

For those who are familiar with AutoHotKey, here is the script;

; Path Of Exile Sync Script 1.0

#IfWinActive Path of Exile
SendMode Input
{
Alt::
Send {enter}
Sleep 20
Send {Alt} /oos {enter}
Sleep 20
Return
}

Simply create a new text document, paste the script in and save as a .ahk file.
Open up your new .ahk script and you're ready to go.



For those who are new to AutoHotKey;

Download and install AutoHotKey here -
http://l.autohotkey.net/AutoHotkey_L_Install.exe

Download the script here -

When AutoHotKey is installed, simply click on the PoE Script.ahk file to run it.


WARNING
Spamming Alt quickly will result in a complete disconnect from the server.
Use it only when needed.


Enjoy playing without de-sync!

Your script checks out. I would put it on something other than Alt though, since I have item pickup there.

I'll add a note how to change the bound key.

Yeah I realized it wasn't spamming it automatically, and those were ms not seconds. I hope people don't spam this every second though. It really should only be done about once per minute on terrible connections.

I'm sure I could edit the script so that it can only be used once ever 30 seconds or so.
Bumping for interest.
Does this mean we can leap slam- /oos and repeat?:0

Here's what i am using at this time, it uses PageDown key as the trigger but you can change that. It's better than the first proposed script cause you can easily get back to chatting in global after using it.

#IfWinActive,Path of Exile

pgdn::
Send {Enter}
Send /oos
Send {Enter}
Send {Enter}
Send {#}
Send {Enter}

I find just

#IfWinActive Path of Exile
SendMode Input
{
`::
Send {enter} /oos {enter}
return
}

works great

don't even see the input box pop up

running the 64 bit ahk on a pretty fast computer

You can only trigger a resync every 10 seconds, to avoid people mashing this.

But pretty much everyone that enjoys not dying uses this, as the game is pretty unplayable at high levels with non summoner/totem builds.
