Use Firefox? Try this. (in General)

I made a simple program that makes your "fight" button automatically advance to the next opponent in your fightlist each time you click it.

But first hear me out.

I was playing around with some new technology things today. I found two extensions for FireFox, one called Greasemonkey the other called Platypus.

If you click each of the two links above and install both of those firefox extensions, then you can use my extension. Click here for it.

I tried to get some people in chat to check it out, but nobody seemed that interested, so I thought I'd post here in forum. Good luck with it!

Seems nifty, however, is it really worth it to save one minor step? ;)

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] July 12 2005 6:49 PM EDT

It also resets to the top of list when it reaches the bottom, so it seems like a neverending list!

I was guessing when the Firefox addons would start rolling out that would help users with CB.

Undertow July 12 2005 7:12 PM EDT

Okay, this is awesome. Now, do something to make the forge easier ala private's CB1 app.

Maelstrom July 12 2005 7:47 PM EDT

OK, so once we've installed the two extensions, what do we do with your script?

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] July 12 2005 7:55 PM EDT

Right click the link up there, and select "install script"

Maelstrom July 12 2005 7:57 PM EDT

Ah, ok. Got it, but it only seems to work with mouse clicks, not the enter button, or am I doing something wrong?

I was playing around with Greasemonkey on CB the other day too. I came to the conclusion that it was going to be far more useful for campers.

Maelstrom July 12 2005 8:10 PM EDT

Umm... this script seems to have messed up something in Firefox - it somehow logged me out, and CB is now not accepting my login information. I can still get in using IE. Anyone know what happened?

krasko July 12 2005 8:12 PM EDT

I have installed it,and its not messing with anything.Its working fine for me.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 July 12 2005 8:15 PM EDT

I installed it, doesnt seem to be working for me :-/

Stephen Young July 12 2005 8:24 PM EDT

I installed it and see no change. Not workin for me.

Maelstrom July 12 2005 8:25 PM EDT

When I open up the Greasemonkey extension, and click to edit the "CB2 Fight Advance" script, I get an error saying that 'window' on line 9 is undefined. That's the "window.addEventListener" line.

Would this be related to my problem? Other sites are working fine, it's only CB2 that is not working.

Stephen Young July 12 2005 8:29 PM EDT

I see the same error.

krasko July 12 2005 8:32 PM EDT

You dont have to edit anything.If i try to edit it ,i get error too,but its working for me.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] July 12 2005 8:40 PM EDT

You can't edit it unless you setup .user.js and .js filetypes to be edited by a text editor.

Maelstrom July 12 2005 8:41 PM EDT

Well, it looks like Greasemonkey was the culprit. I uninstalled it, and I can once again get into CB through Firefox.

Maelstrom July 12 2005 8:43 PM EDT

Verifex, it was a JS compilation error. The 'window' variable was not defined within the script, though I suppose it would be available within Firefox.

Aco July 13 2005 1:32 AM EDT

no spyware scripted in it, I hope? :)

Aco July 13 2005 1:34 AM EDT

nevermind that useless post -_-

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] July 13 2005 8:47 PM EDT

I read up some greasemonkey scripting stuff, and I found that it would be alot easier to use instead of relying on Playpus.

Here is my script again without needing platypus.

Stephen Young July 13 2005 9:11 PM EDT

Now it's working. Cool.

xDanELx July 14 2005 5:22 AM EDT

how do i install the script verifex created? i click on his link and it shows me the code.

Stephen Young July 14 2005 6:51 AM EDT

Read this entire thread and the mystery will be revealed...

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] July 14 2005 4:42 PM EDT

Alright, I erased all the former scripts off my server, so don't bother clicking them anymore, I made a new one, that combines the old one, and a new one I just made. It adds a training button on the fight page. Honestly I don't know why Jon took that out, but oh well.

I'm going to work on this some more and see if I can get a fancy console for it to train your minions ON the fightpage using AJAX or something, but I'm not sure if it will work or not.

Make sure to uninstall all previous links either before or after installing this script. New Script Link: here
