While you're at it, give it a HTTP-client interface to save yourself a couple of hours of your time. Cashwars is boring, even with only the standard (200? 50? I can't recall, I quit when I went on holiday to Canada :-) moves per day.

    Actually, the programs that I have work with CashBrowser. Cahsbrowser is a UI for CashWars that makes it much easier to play (it has a visual map of the game, you can move to a location by clicking on it and it'll move you there across multiple squares, etc...). My programs load the map file that CashBrowser produces. My program then produces as "automover" file (basically a list of waypoints) that CashBrowser can load and uses to do all its movement. I just start up CashBrowser once a day and let it do all the work. What I'm working on is generating a better file for the automover to use.
      Cool, this sounds like a good "Free Lunch" thingy for those who have bandwidth >:-> >:-> >:-> But how much time will it take to figure out how it all works, eh?
        You talking about CashWars in general? Not too long. The page loads don't really take that long (they are pretty lite), but there can be many of them. Definitely use one of the automation tools if you play it (I recomend CashBrowser). Playing the game with the "stock" UI to the game via a web browser is nearly impossible.
