« on: June 07, 2010, 09:39:00 AM »
MacroGoblin 2.8.0.4 Released

This should now be downloadable in "My Downloads". Uninstall the old version before installing this one..

Summary
This is a large feature upgrade for the MacroGoblin program. The MacroGoblin program runs all of the bots available here.
Bot designers will find many new features and functions available.

Bot users will not need to upgrade to this version to run their favorite bots but you're encouraged to do so.  Future bots may require this version or higher to run properly.


Installing the New Version
  • First Uninstall the old MG version using the Control Panel (Add/Remove Programs).
  • Head to the "My Downloads" part of the website and download the new version (v2.8.0.4).
  • Run the downloaded installation file. It should install .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 if you don't already have it installed.
  • Start up the new version and log into the MG servers.
  • Now you can either exit the program and run a bot launcher (ie Aion Goblin), or load up a .mg file bot.


The information in this change log is primarily for bot designers and modifiers. Regular bot users do not need to understand this technical information.  


Change Highlights
  • MacroGoblin now runs .Net Framework 3.5
  • You can create MacroGoblin plugins in .Net Framework 3.5 and below.
  • The MacroGoblin installation program will now automatically detect if you have the proper .Net framework dependencies. If you do not have them  it will download and install them directly from the setup program.
  • You can now optionally provide Input parameters to routines. You can also get an Output value from routines. This means that routines can  optionally act like functions in traditional programming. See the manual for specifics (Expressions and Functions -> Routine Input and Output).
  • In the Routine Editor, you can now optionally organize Routines in folders. Routines are now organized by routine folders and routine names  (alphabetical).
  • Memory monitors can now accept more advanced memory addresses such as pointers, module addresses, etc. All number inputs must now be in  hexadecimal format.
  • Memory reading functions and memory monitors now can be setup to read either Ansi String or Unicode String memory.
  • Over 130 New MacroGoblin functions were added. These are usable in MacroGoblin Routines. See the list below and the manual for more info on  these new functions.
  • 3 New Plugin functions are available to use within plugin code.
  • Updated MacroGoblin manual and Plugin manual.
