 A: Congratulations on your purchase! ​ Now is a good time to note that **I take no liability for anything this app does or doesn'​t do**.  This is all on you.  Don't switch things around while it's running before stopping it.  I've tried to make it auto-stop when unexpected things happen, but it's really just a dumb script, so it has it's limits. A: Congratulations on your purchase! ​ Now is a good time to note that **I take no liability for anything this app does or doesn'​t do**.  This is all on you.  Don't switch things around while it's running before stopping it.  I've tried to make it auto-stop when unexpected things happen, but it's really just a dumb script, so it has it's limits.

 A: Yes, I'm sure it can.  I suggest copying the tasks/​profiles and renaming them, then adjusting them to your new game.  You'll need to learn more about Tasker to do that, but it's time well spent, I promise you that. A: Yes, I'm sure it can.  I suggest copying the tasks/​profiles and renaming them, then adjusting them to your new game.  You'll need to learn more about Tasker to do that, but it's time well spent, I promise you that.

 +Q: The tapper isn't hitting ​my buttons.  How do I fix that?**
  
-A: This one gets complex. ​ If you look at the steps, you'll note there'​s math going on to try to figure out where the buttons are located. ​ Because of the way the company made FFXV, the "​buttons"​ used are not actual buttons, but just images, at least to android. I tried to use my device as a rough guide to setup this auto-scaling,​ but if your device is very different, or you play in another orientation,​ or if they just move the buttons...+A: This one gets complex. ​ If you look at the steps in the FFXV-Buyer Task, you'll note there'​s math going on to try to figure out where the buttons are located. ​ Because of the way the company made FFXV, the "​buttons"​ used are not actual buttons, but just images ​you can tap. I tried to use my device as a rough guide to setup this auto-scaling,​ but if your device is very different, or you play in another orientation,​ or if they just move the buttons ​later, this may stop working.
  
-If you look at that math being done, you'll note for the X and Y it gets your screen size and multiplies by one number, then divides by another. ​ The number it multiplies by is the raw location I found on my screen using debug mode.  The division number is the size reported by the AutoInput call to get the device resolution on my device. ​ You can re-do this for your device by [[https://​www.digitaltrends.com/​mobile/​how-to-get-developer-options-on-android/​|enabling developer options]] on your device, and enabling the **Show pointer location** item.  You can then find where the buttons are on your screen, replace the multiplier with it, and the divisor with your screen dimensions (stored in FFXVRes).+If you look at that math being done, you'll note for the X and Y it gets your screen size and multiplies by one number, then divides by another, it then puts them to the AutoInput plugin.  The number it multiplies by is the raw location I found on my screen using debug mode.  The division number is the size reported by the AutoInput call to get the device resolution on my device. ​ You can re-do this for your device by [[https://​www.digitaltrends.com/​mobile/​how-to-get-developer-options-on-android/​|enabling developer options]] on your device, and enabling the **Show pointer location** item.  You can then find where the buttons are on your screen ​in X and Y and simply use those values. ​ You can either store those values directly into the variables (%buyx and %buyy, for example)or replace the multiplier with it, and the divisor with your screen dimensions (stored in FFXVRes).
