Introduction to TinyTask

About: Indie game developer that loves arduino and LEDs and gaming and stuff.

In this instructable, I will be showing you how to use TinyTask to make doing time-consuming tasks easier.

TinyTask can be found Here

Today we will be automating typical everyday tasks.

Step 1: Setup

This program is just a standalone exe. However, there are still some things that you might want to do:

• Remember settings in .INI
• Set repeat count ( if you want it to be continuous, how many times to do it? Check Continuous Playback for that. )
• recording and stop hotkeys

Step 2: Ahem! Let's Record!

Press your recording hotkey, and go about your business. Try to do it a little slower and more accurate. After, you can set playback speed to fast.

Step 3: Done

Press your play hotkey and you are done! Play around with the config and how you use your mouse. This has an effect on how it turns out.

    When I get that error (running the compiled EXE), I normally find that making the sequence artificially longer, fixes it. For example, if your sequence was just "click, drag, click", try recording it as "mouse wiggle around for 3 seconds, click, drag, click"

    It's not quite as simple as it sounds. I have a folder full of subfolders with only one or two items in each. I recorded the macro to open the top folder listed, select the contents, drag all items to another folder open on the right, and then back to the first folder, go back a step, and then delete the now empty folder.

    The problem I have is that Tiny Task doesn't like to remember distances. It randomly changes the distance between point A and point B, which is rather frustrating.

    It's had this same issue of 'forgetting' the proper distance between points in half a dozen different macros I've recorded.

    If the macro you are recording does not depend on precise mouse locations, then this introduction you've written works fine. Anything more than clicking in the same location repeatedly has brought up more and more issues at least 90% of the time.
