Nomad Moogle – mIRC FFXI Tool
In April of 2008 I had an idea for a new bot: an FFXI character tracker. Kinthoras of Esper.net and I talked it over and he decided to create one in Java. I decided to create my own, based on his Java bot, in mIRC’s internal scripting language. This is the result.
This bot keeps track of character’s job levels, crafting levels, in-game goals, and a few other misc information.
The loading information is inside the file itself as well as a command list. If you are unfamiliar with loading mIRC scripts, it’s best to create a seperate folder (C:\moogle\ or C:\ffxi\ will work) with a copy of mIRC in the folder (version 6.16 or greater should work just fine). Once you do that, unzip the .mrc file in that folder, load mIRC and type /load -rs ffxi.mrc and it should load just fine. Now sign into your server, join the channel and (with a seperate client) try some of the commands (look in the mrc file for commands or type !help with the second client).
This tracker is really only useful if you run an FFXI-based channel and want to have a little tool to help out with keeping track of characters. Hopefully it will continue to grow and include more and more functionality.
