Detecting automaton actions

Post by Dasva » Sun Nov 26, 2017 12:58 pm

So for awhile now it's always been considered can't really use ashitacast or gearswap to precast automaton moves because by the time it's detected it's already too late. But someone over on ffxiah seems to have come up with something that works for gearswap. Can see the start of it here and latest bit here.

Supposedly it works was wondering if it really does and if something like that is possible on ashitacast. Needless to say the ability to swap in optimal gear without having to anticipate and then still idle for decent periods would be kind of huge

its absolutely possible, ive used a similar method to toggle on/off burst gear. you either need an addon or plugin that reads the action packet, and than could have it tell ashitacast whatever you want via /commands inside your ac or just plain /ac set blahblah if that suits your needs, theres more than a few ways to go about it once youve done the action packet part

Is it possible to be a part of ashitacast like how other pet moves just use the pet skill section?

Also you mention you do something similar. Do you have it to share?
