Ok a few people are having trouble spamming their adv's in the crimbo.
Well here is the solution.
1. Download the browser firefox
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/
2. Install an extension of firefox called greasemonkey, this will enable scripts.
http://greasemonkey.mozdev.org/
3. Restart firefox to enable greasemonkey.
4. Go here:

to download the script called KOL tool belt.

Oh if you want more scripts like this go here:
http://kol.coldfront.net/thekolwiki/index.php/Tools

I found this really useful, and much better than KOL mafia.
Oh some scripts include recipe lists, show monster stats, and also chances for what they drop!!

Oh if you like this make sure you say thanks!!

It's only better than KoLmafia if you don't know how to use KoLmafia. I've used greasemonkey and had problems with it in the past.

The only real solution to the lag is to stop playing. The servers can only handle so many people and if all those extra people are pounding away on the crimbo content during peak use hours it gets slow.

Personally I think this is just a sign that the hardware isn't fast enough, mainly the database server. If they don't jump on the problem quick you can expect it to get a lot worse in the future. But the last lag from hell period went on far too long before they threw new hardware at the problem.

Probably the best thing to do is click the donate link and help pay the bills. If they have fat stacks of cash in the bank to buy new hardware they might just do it. :)

Automating KoL to save time - Bots/Scripts/Etc.

http://www.reifysoft.com/turnabout.php

the advanced version appears to be the same thing (I haven't thoroughly tested it) but according to the description, it runs greasemonkey scripts.

Why does this matter? It won't for long, but during the horrible crimboween lag of 2006, and before the updated mafia came out, we had to manually click through all our adventures while trying to farm for our crimbo pieces. there are a couple nice scripts that allow us to auto-adventure, but we needed to use greasemonkey to run those scripts. with this turnabout software, it looks like IE users can enjoy the same functions.

there's no more lag, and mafia is almost up to date, and in about 2 weeks, the new adventures that mafia doesn't have in its database will be gone.

but for now, this looks like it could be useful for those of us that use IE but don't use firefox.

Mafia Related Questions / Greasemonkey / Scripting and automating KoL
« Reply #3 on: June 11, 2007, 02:13:35 PM »
Thread for mafia related questions .. Don't know what mafia is, its a tool to use up automatically your adventures in KOL ..

Ok, I know a few of you already know how to do this, so i'm hoping for some info on how to use leftover MP. I use my char for farming and I would like to use my MP when it's full to cast buffs, like leash to myself but I don't know how to do it with mafia. You can cast when an effect is lost or gained but didnt find an effect meaning MP was full. Also would like to know how to do it automatically but for another player ..

anyone ?

just a trivial question
when I open it the program name is "7LMafia." does this have anything to do with the clan ???
if it does that's pretty cool  :D
Sometimes, it helps to just let your dilemmas or tough descisions go away. Kind of like the line-item veto.

It's your imagination. No such thing exists.  ;)

ach's guide to mafia (for beginners)
« Reply #7 on: July 15, 2007, 08:30:35 PM »
thanks to glitt, spud, and brick chicken for giving me the idea to make this guide.

Mafia for Beginners

Table of Contents

[1] KoLmafia Startup
   [1.1] KoL Login
   [1.2] Main Tabs
   [1.3] Look & Feel
   [1.4] Connection
   [1.5] Breakfast
[2] Adventuring

Chapter [1]

[1.1] To start off, if you saw the link for mafia in the chat channel, click the "[link]," then save the file. Go to where you saved it, then extract all the files. Go to where you extracted the files and open up the JAR file "7LMafia." Enter your account information.

[1.2] These are the per-user settings for what shows up when KoLmafia successfully logs into the Kingdom of Loathing. You can drag and drop options in the lists below to customize what will show up. Also, you can change what starts up in different windows.

[1.3] These options are more advanced settings of KoLmafia.

[1.4] This is how you connect to KoLmafia. You can add/remove/change proxy settings, and which server you connect to.

[1.5] The best startup interface tab ever! (because it supports me and my laziness...) Anyway... this controls exactly what happens when you log in (besides actually logging in). You can run scripts on login and logout, and select what you want to happen on login. No more lag when skill-casting!
___

[2.0] To start adventuring, look for the tab titled "Adventure". This should have five smaller tabs, Overview, Choice Advs, HP/MP Usage, Mood Setup, and Custom Combat. Overview shows basically an overview of your current session, what items you've gained and lost and how much meat you've gained, and the stats you've gained. Choice Advs is all the non-combat adventures that let you choose what to do, and this way you don't have to do it yourself. HP/MP usage is how KoLmafia manages your HP and MP, like auto-healing you when you want it to and balancing your buffs for you. Mood Setup is basically "when you lose an effect, do this, and when you gain an effect do that". Finally, custom combat is how lazy NPZR farmers do their farming. If you want to always use an item (i.e. seal tooth), type 1: item seal tooth. And if you want KoLmafia to do that for 30 turns in the fight, you then type 30: item seal tooth.

Note: More is to come, don't worry.

okay well...

Quote from: holatuwol
How can I help with the KoLmafia project?

You can write a manual. People seem to keep asking for one (and have been for the last two years), and I keep rejecting them telling them I have neither the time nor the inclination to write one. So, if you'd like to get started with one, even if it's a couple pages long and even if it doesn't document very much, it would be really helpful.

so i thought i'd write one. is that okay? besides, mine is for beginners. all the guides ive found on the nets are more complex and involve the graphical thingywammit...

I'm sure some people could use a manual. The trick is keeping up with the interface design changes. One of the next things to drastically change will be the buffbot interface. The KoLmafia interface seems to constantly evolve.

Do we have a working version that allows buffs to stay on and possibly have access to some new content?  I miss being able to let mafia run while at work

There is no official release of KoLmafia that works correctly with NS13. If you ask in clan chat someone might have a link to an unofficial release that works better with some of the NS13 content.

One Click Wossname script for Mafia
« Reply #14 on: February 18, 2008, 10:52:36 AM »
A spiffy script that does the island war so that you will get get the wossname from the island war
http://kolmafia.us/index.php?PHPSESSID=jd4gjvju03i0ak99n31apekh32&topic=1395.0

Go there and read carefully on how to set it up. If set up correctly you will get the wossname.
Dot (aka TheCoddess) has used this script successfully twice already and I am in the process of using it for the first time on one of my multis.

The script is in an attachment in the first post. Click on the attachment and then download the script. Unzip the .zip file where the author tells you to. Load up mafia and then run the script. Thats it.

One thing you need to do if you change you battle plan from optimal is go back and change the battle plan back to whatever battle plan you are using if you download a newer version of OCW. I almost messed my self up by not doing this, but stopped mafia before the quest got buggered up for me.
