Scooter - Easy Autorun Access
What is Scooter?
Scooter is a mod that allows you to auto-run by holding the right mouse button and left clicking twice. Easy to access autorun!
You may have encountered this before as GoldenRun, as it's one of the treasures you can find when scouring through the site, as I did.
I liked what it did, but I noticed not long after installing it that Skinner was yelling me about Ace2 not being skinned. Looking through my stuff, only one mod used Ace2 - GoldenRun. So I had a look at the mod itself, and there were lots of superfluous elements. Superfluous events, libraries, and even a hook that just didn't need to exist.
All of the superfluousity really. The part that bugged me most though was how it was using Ace2 when nothing else did (all of my other mods are correctly using Ace3). It still worked, but it was a bloated mess and I could tell that the person maintaining it didn't really have the time or perhaps the desire to do so.
The superfluous elements actually seemed to be part of prior versions of GoldenRun which no longer worked. It hadn't just been stripped down to the part that does work (using the mouse for autorun). Again, realising that the maintainer didn't seem to have the time/desire to work with it, I thought I'd be nice and do the work for them.
GoldenRun, of course. And I learned a thing or two from perusing Fishing Buddy's code.
I was almost tempted to name this mod 'Scootaloo.'
