Crisis: Im not a good, not even moderate, scripter/prorgammer. But I have gotten around 18 old scripts to work since i came back to UO couple of months ago after several years of absence. This one, as I have stated in 3 posts above, is just beyond me, i dont understand how the quest system works. "Keep at it" doesnt really cut it, since ive spent quite a few hours on this after my wrists startet to act up from the HW turn ins, without making any progress.

TheGhost: Its very nice of you to try to help, but I wonder if your realize that your comment is about the only part of the script thats working, so not really actual helpful. ;)

said3: I didnt know you were still active on this site, since this script havent been updated. Its of course good to know that you have a MUCH better script somewhere, that works perfectly for you. Always pleasant to have it rubbed in really hard... :D

Anyways..I got the Scrappers recipie (the hard and manual way) and i can get the runics via bods in no time, so no need to ever do a HW quest again for my part...

Most of us started out the same way that you are, working on scripts that don't work or you want to alter them more to fit your needs. As you go through them, you start to learn what they do. You will undoubtedly come across more older scripts that have errors. OSI has added many things which makes the button positions different or the gump a different size. I have done many things since I first looked at EUO and scripting. I am not a programmer and have no programming skills.You have no choice but to keep at it or not use the many different scripts out there. The UO population and scripting population has fallen off dramatically in the past 10 years so scripts don't generally get updated unless the author still plays or people get them to work. You may be able to hire a scripter to fox things but that is expensive and rarely happens. I would suggest to keep at it and ask questions about how things work. There are some great tutorials but for the most part you need to jump in and get your hands dirty. I work on my motorcycle the same way, I try and self-diagnose, abuse youtube how-to videos and ask for help when I get in too deep but I have saved a lot of money and have the satisfaction of doing it myself. I can same the same for me with EUO scripting, I have come a long way since I first started. EUO and this site will be what you make it.  :D

P.S. complaining to people who are giving advice and help isn't the best way to get started.

Thank you for the heads-up Crisis! You are quite right and learning a bit more about how the scripts work and how to make them will probably pay dividends in the coming months. But my future efforts will be used in bod collecting and bod filling scripts, where I have a working setup, that could be fine tuned more.

Sorry also for my snotty comebacks, it was uncalled for and I apologize!

My intention was not at all to brag about a better script, as Crisis mentioned, most of us started the same way. In my case while I was learning I was posting the things I was doing, that is why this script is so old and 'useless' at the minute. It is probably my first published script, but since then I learned a lot thanks to fixing scripts that i needed.

So this Script does not work anymore?  Any plans to update it?  Will it be moved to "dead" Scripts?

As my follow member Crisis mention multiple time.

I would expect someone to become a contributing member to a community . You will notice that you have a restricted title by your name. We have a requirement that must be met before someone can become a member. A lot of time and effort is put into a script before someone releases it to the public so they are not given out by someone who just joined and cannot even introduce themselves or read the site rules.  They would expect you to be an active member in the community.
