40d:Macros and keymaps

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
This article is about an older version of DF.

Playing Dwarf Fortress means lots of typing. Although the game has no internal macro/keymap system (except in alpha version 40d12), using an external program can save you a great deal of time when dumping, rewalling, designating, and so forth.

  1. Go to Utilities#AutoHotKey and download AutoHotKey. Installation is simple and the program uses few system resources.
  2. Write macro scripts (file type .ahk), which may contain any number of commands. You activate scripts by double-clicking .ahk files and deactivate them by right-clicking the AutoHotKey icon on the task bar. Both of these can be done at any time - even right in the middle of a game. AutoHotKey also allows for automated activation of scripts.


Troubleshooting Scripts[edit]

Users may experience some issues in getting scripts to work, particularly when using looping scripts when experiencing low frame-rates.

  • If experiencing low frame-rates, try adding delays ("Sleep 100" to pause for 100 milliseconds for example) within loops to allow the interface to keep up. If there are nested loops, sometimes adding a pause at the end of an inner loop is all that is needed to flush the keyboard buffer
  • Another way to add delay during and after each simulated key press is to put SetKeyDelay, 40, 40 at the start of the macro.
  • Make sure that Dwarf Fortress maintains focus. IM windows are the enemy! Who needs friends anyhow? You've got Dwarf Fortress.
  • This may go without saying, but most macros assume standard key-mappings. If you're using non-standard ones, you may have to edit the macro to get it to work.
  • Visiting liaisons can bring up screens that eat keystrokes, throwing a long-looping script out-of-phase with where it expects the game to be. Wait for the farewell screen before running a long script.
  • The SendPlay function supports keys that the Send function does not, for example Shift-Enter. According to the AutoHotKey documentation, SendPlay may also be better at preventing dropped keystrokes.

Quickfort[edit]

Quickfort is an AutoHotkey-based utility for Dwarf Fortress that helps you build fortresses from "blueprint" .CSV files (comma separated values). These files are easily created and edited in an app like Excel. Most building-oriented DF commands are supported through the use of multiple .CSV files to describe the different phases of DF construction (designation, building, stockpiles, and making adjustments). Many of the examples below can be reproduced in Quickfort.


Built-in Macros[edit]

With the release of df_28_181_40d13, Dwarf Fortress supports macros without any outside program. They can be created by hitting escape to access the options menu and choosing the Key Bindings section. Once in the Key Bindings menu hit Shift+Tab to open the macro screen. The macros you create here are saved in the file "\data\init\interface.txt". Adding the following to the end of that file will create a macro that selects every item on the trade screen when you hit the tilde key (`).

[BIND:MACRO0]
[SYM:`]
[MACRO:SELECT:1]
[MACRO:STANDARDSCROLL_DOWN:1]
[MACRO:SELECT:1]
[MACRO:STANDARDSCROLL_DOWN:1]
[MACRO:SELECT:1]
[MACRO:STANDARDSCROLL_DOWN:1]
[MACRO:SELECT:1]
[MACRO:STANDARDSCROLL_DOWN:1]
[MACRO:SELECT:1]
[MACRO:STANDARDSCROLL_DOWN:1]
[MACRO:SELECT:1]
[MACRO:STANDARDSCROLL_DOWN:1]

[MACRO:SELECT:1]
[MACRO:STANDARDSCROLL_DOWN:1]
[MACRO:SELECT:1]
[MACRO:STANDARDSCROLL_DOWN:1]
[MACRO:SELECT:1]
[MACRO:STANDARDSCROLL_DOWN:1]

Performance can be increased by changing the macro pause, MACRO_MS, from the default 150ms per command to zero. Most dig macros can be created using combinations of the following:

[MACRO:CURSOR_UP:1]
[MACRO:CURSOR_DOWN:1]
[MACRO:CURSOR_LEFT:1]
[MACRO:CURSOR_RIGHT:1]
[MACRO:SELECT:1]
[MACRO:DESIGNATE_DIG:1]
[MACRO:DESIGNATE_UNDO:1]
[MACRO:CURSOR_UP_FAST:1]
[MACRO:CURSOR_DOWN_FAST:1]
[MACRO:CURSOR_LEFT_FAST:1]
[MACRO:CURSOR_RIGHT_FAST:1]
[MACRO:MACRO123:1]

Most of these should be self-explanatory. Each command is followed with a quantity. To call other macros, use

[MACRO:MACRO###:1]

Each new macro begins with a bind command, consisting of BIND, the macro number, and a description:

[BIND:MACRO11:dig_round_room]

Spaces are not allowed in the descriptionVerify. To bind this macro to a key, SYM is used.

[SYM:Ctrl+Right]

Ctrl, Alt, and Shift combinations are allowed, but not chords with more than oneVerify, like Ctrl+Shift+Right. Also, the windows, or meta key, does not appear to be supportedVerify. Macros appear to only be terminated by the start of a new macro (BIND command) or the end of the interface.txt file.

AutoHotKey Examples[edit]

Dumping[edit]

GuiDumper.ahk[edit]

This script allows the user to specify a range of squares to dump.

Stock Screen Dump[edit]

Taken from an old version of Jackard's user page.

To use, first have your bookkeeper do enough desk work so you can view individual items in the stocks listing. Then bring it up and press del to quickly mark stuff. To adjust the key repeat rate, edit the KEY_HOLD_MS value in \data\init\init.txt.

del::
IfWinActive Dwarf Fortress
{
  send d{down}
  return
}
else
{
  send {del}
  return
}

Designation Dump[edit]

A dumping script by Dukederek:

This script uses a system similar the commands in the designations menu to mark most of the contents of a large area for dumping. My talk page has more detailed instruction.

Essentially you need to create two text files with the following titles and content. When playing DF it is safe to have blockdumpinit running constantly as long as you don't plan on using the ctrl-d combination for something else.

blockdumpinit.ahk

RunWait, "blockdumpmain.ahk"

}ExitApp

Rewalling[edit]

Taken from Valdemar's user page.

This is a macro to aid with rewalling. To use, copy-paste the script into a new .ahk file and run the script with AutoHotkey. Then, in Dwarf Fortress, press b-C-w, move the cursor to where you want to start the wall, and hold Ctrl-Shift-Arrowkey, using the direction you want to rewall in. To build floors, press b-C-f instead, and use Ctrl-Alt-Arrowkey. To stop, just release the keys.

The script will use the first material in the list. I suggest you create a stockpile near the construction site that only accepts the item you wish to build with and temporarily forbid any nearby materials you don't want to build with.

$^+Left:: ProcessEvent("Left","w")
$^+Right:: ProcessEvent("Right","w")
$^+Up:: ProcessEvent("Up","w")
$^+Down:: ProcessEvent("Down","w")

$^!Left:: ProcessEvent("Left","f")
$^!Right:: ProcessEvent("Right","f")
$^!Up:: ProcessEvent("Up","f")
$^!Down:: ProcessEvent("Down","f")


ProcessEvent(direction, type)
{   
    Send {Enter}
    Sleep 100
    Send {Enter}
    Sleep 100
    Send %type%
    Sleep 100
    Send {%direction%}
    Loop
    {
        if not GetKeyState(direction, "P") 
            break  
        Send {Enter}
        Sleep 100
        Send {Enter}
        Sleep 100
        Send %type%
        Sleep 100
        Send {%direction%}
    }
}


Grid-by-grid designation[edit]

For easier diagonal and fancy mining. Assumes that DF is active. "^!" means ctrl-alt-direction.

^!NumpadEnd::
send {Enter}{Enter}{NumpadEnd}
return

Embark Settings macros[edit]

These macros are used to ease the setup of skills and supplies before you embark.


Improved Food/Alcohol buying macro[edit]

This macro buys all the cost-2 food (that I have seen), as well as the four types of alcohol. Just press ctrl+f on the Items screen. It can deal with meat or drink that you already have, or is not currently featured. By Redfenix.

Bed Assigning macro[edit]

This will assign bedrooms to your dwarfs. Press F3 followed by a single digit indicating how many beds to assign. Can repeat the action, as the number of beds assigned is stored in a counter. Room size is default, but easily edited into the script. By Napsterbater.

Room-designation macros[edit]

Valdemar's Designator Macro[edit]

This macro can read a spreadsheet and designate rooms according to it. Version 1

Version 2 of this macro apparently only works in versions up to and including 38c Verify, and can be found here: Version 2

Fedor's chambered circle[edit]

A circular room with eight equal-sized chambers, suitable for everything from housing to workshops to a mausoleum.

Macro text

Valdemar's bedroom complex[edit]

A large fractal bedroom/dining complex, with 56 bedrooms and room for 24 tables.

You can press Alt-B to create a bedroom block, or Alt-C to create a full complex with 4 bedroom blocks and a dining block in the center.

Note - the macro is much faster than the demo movie shows, it is done in under a minute.

Tulip's room macros[edit]

Based on the bedroom designs.

^g means alt+g, !g means ctrl+g, and so on. Open up the designations window before using these:

; This will make a basic 'x' pattern workshop/room layout
; and will 'land' back on the same tile it starts on each time,
; which happens to be the center.
; It is modified so that you will have 3 staircases, and an extra tile
; because many workshops do not have corner access.

Fancy Exploration Mining[edit]

This script digs a connected series of mine shafts, as in Mineshaft Stitching. Start this script in the upper-left corner of the area you want to explore. Set the spacing to a value greater than 1 if you want to look for large clusters. Note that this pattern creates a very long walkway back to the start of the mineshafts. If you do not excavate routinely, consider connecting the top-level paths of areas you have already explored.


 ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
 ; stitching.ahk					   ;
 ; this is an ahk script to place exploratory mine shafts. ;
 ; press d and place the cursor				   ;
 ; in the top left corner of the area to be explored	   ;
 ; then use ctrl+shift+s to run				   ;
 ; to change parameters, use ctrl+shift+c		   ;

Upstairs Mineshaft Finisher[edit]

This script is used to create a series of up staircases in a pattern for use with mineshaft scripts (like the mineshaft stitching above). Most mineshaft scripts use up/down staircases all the way to the bottom, but the lowest z-level will not allow up/down staircases so you mineshafts will be unfinished. This script allows you to correct this problem and place up stairs where the up/down stairs would be.


 ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

 ; this is an ahk script to place up stairs at regular	   ;
 ; intervals (useful for completing mine shafts).	   ;

4-Pour Water Creation script[edit]

For Automating creation of water using Gibbeds Tweak.

;
;	4-pour.ahk
;	Dwarf fortress water creation script.
;
;Use this script in conjunction with Gibbeds Dwarf Fortress Tweak to create endless amounts of water.;
;
;Directions
;
;1. Have DF running and position the screen such that when you press "K" the X will appear where you 

;want the water to appear.
;2. Have Gbbed's Dwarf Fortress tweak running in the background (with the proper process selected)
;3. run the 4-pour script
;4. press alt-p to get Pouring
;
;The script will then begin a cycle that moves the cursor around in a little 2x2 square editing each 

;tile to have 7/7 of water, it then pauses for a half a seond to let the water flow a bit, and repeats. 

;It does this until you..
;
;5. press and hold <shift> to stop
;
;As always, save before you experiment with this
;I hold no responsibility for what this script ends up doing to your dwarves/fortress/computer/carpet
;Feel free to clean it up, make it more usable, whatever
;
;

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

			if (hdir = "{Right}")
			{
				hdir = {Left}
			}
			else if (hdir = "{Left}")
			{
				hdir = {Right}
			}
		}
	}
}
else
{
	MsgBox File not found
}

Sample file to show how this all works:


111111
100001
100201
103001
100401
105001
100601
100001
111111

This creates a room filled with up/down stairs, a ramp, and a channel.

And finally, here's a sample pattern based on the decentralized workshop:

jokermatt999's pump stack builder[edit]

Just a simple macro to place one mined level of a pump stack room, as illustrated in the pump stack page on this wiki. It's recommended you exit out after finishing up with it, as the macro is just assigned to p. Hit/Hold down p for multiple layers.

p::Send i{Enter}{Enter}{Right}d{Enter}{Right}{Right}{Down}{Down}{Enter}h{Enter}{Enter}{Up}{Left}x{Enter}{Enter}{Left}{Left}{Down}h{Enter}{Enter}{Up}{Up}{Shift Down}.{Shift Up}
p::
Send i{Enter 2}
Send d6{Enter}33{Enter}
Send h{Enter 2}
Send x7{Enter 2}
Send h14{Enter 2}
Send 88{Shift Down}.{Shift Up}
return
