Up-to-date friendlist on every alt

Post by Saavick » Wed Jul 29, 2015 10:06 pm

I recently came back to AO after a few years, and hadn't yet transfered all my characters from Rk1. So when I did, I ended up with 20 alts with empty friendlists :o

I don't know if this is common knowledge or a cool trick, but I hope this post will interest at least someone ;)
There's an easy way to keep your friendlist up-to-date on every alt with a simple script.

First open your favourite text editor, e.g. notepad. Now add a line for every friend you wish to add like so:

Code: Select all

/cc addbuddy Saavick
/cc aadbuddy Lokuta
/cc aadbuddy Violentmeany

/cc addbuddy Lusto
/cc addbuddy Lostu

/cc addbuddy Carrion
/cc addbuddy Gerbil

/cc addbuddy Tarradax
/cc addbuddy Baene

/cc addbuddy Snarfblatt
I prefer to group alts together to easily keep track of who's who, but you don't have to do that.

Save the file as friends in your scripts directory. It's located at:

Code: Select all

C:\Users\<windows user name>\AppData\Local\Funcom\Anarchy Online\<random letters>\<your AO directory>\scripts
e.g.

Code: Select all

C:\Users\saavick\AppData\Local\Funcom\Anarchy Online\cd14ae3e\AO\scripts
You can now type /friends in the game, and every friend will be added to your friendlist. You can do this on every alt :) If a friend already exist it will simply keep it. So you can run the script, add one friend and run it again to update your list.
