A collection of useful things to improve the Dofus Retro experience.

 

> Downloading and installing Dofus Retro

You must be subscribed to access the Dofus Retro servers.

64-bit version uses Adobe Flash Player 32 and has notifications for when a character's turn starts, though it doesn't work with the AHK script.

32-bit version uses Adobe Flash Player 10 and doesn't have the notifications, but it works with the AHK script.

If using the Ankama Launcher version and crashing/lagging, try using the 32-bit version, can be enabled in the Dofus Retro settings or launched through the AHK script.

_____Improvements_____

> AHK Script

AHK Script is an AutoHotKey script that automatically launches a specified number of clients, logs them in, selects the server/character and invites them to the group, as well as lets you switch to a specific character window with hotkeys among other things. Also launches WindowTabs if WindowTabs.exe exists in the same location as the script. (Source Code, currently the newest version is 25, alternative AHK script)

It automatically uses/launches the 32-bit version from the default Ankama Launcher location, as the 64-bit version doesn't work with the script.

Settings:

Spoiler

Should login to the game once manually (after updates/changing the game files/clearing cache/cleaning with CCleaner) for it to load/cache the game files and get consistent loading times when using the script.

Run the script as administrator if you're experiencing problems, also play around with the Delay variables if the script is too fast or too slow.

 

Hotkeys:

Can set hotkeys by clicking on the box and then clicking a key, or a combination of keys like Ctrl+key. Can also delete hotkeys by clicking on the box and then clicking the Delete button on the keyboard.

Click - Clicks the position that the mouse is currently at in all character windows, can be used to move around, close combat end screen or other things for all characters at once.

Spam - Repeatedly Ctrl+double left clicks the position that the mouse is currently at in the current character window until pressed again, can be used to exchange/bank items.

Invite - Manually invites all characters to the group, useful since the automatic invite after logging in does not work if there is a queue.

Join - Shift clicks the position that the mouse is currently at and then clicks ready in all character windows, initiate combat with any character and then hover over the combat sword with any other character to use, the leader won't click ready in case some character doesn't join due to the combat sword bugging out.

AFK - Opens and closes the friends list on all characters to prevent logging out.

Exit - Closes Dofus windows and exits the script.

 

Delays (in milliseconds):

Increase/Decrease these to find the sweet spot that works for your PC without the script misclicking or acting slowly.

Idle - Delay between launching clients/logging in/selecting server/selecting character.

Idlem - Delay when opening clients/entering login details/inviting to group.

Spam - Delay between clicks for the Spam hotkey function.

Click - Delay between clicking in each character window with the Click hotkey, randomly chosen between the two numbers for each window, useful to avoid being mistaken as a bot if using it to move several characters for a long time, otherwise can use 50-100 if just closing interfaces.

Mouse - Delay between each mouse move/click, useful if there's trouble logging in due to the mouse being too fast.

AFK - Delay between clicks for the AFK hotkey function.

 

Other:

32-bit Dofus.exe location - Default location of the 32-bit Dofus.exe, can be changed if you've installed Dofus Retro in another folder.

Invite to group - Automatically invites characters to the group after logging in, doesn't work if there's a queue, in that case you may use the Invite Hotkey.

Launch/Login - Whether to launch and login the accounts, or just use the hotkeys and other functionality with the already open and logged in accounts.

Accounts to launch - How many accounts to launch and log them in.

Leader - Which character should be the leader of the group.

Window/Character Name - Use correct character names if you will use the group invite function, otherwise can be anything.

Server/Char - Which server/character to select when logging in, the order of the slots in-game is based on the newest created character.

Reset - Clears all saved settings (by deleting the .ini file) and reloads the script.

> WindowTabs

WindowTabs is a nice tool to group Dofus windows separately, as well as sort and switch through them easily with specified hotkeys or the scroll wheel at the top of any Dofus window, works with the AHK script. (Activated newest 2014 version: Download. Activated 2013 version in case the 2014 lags: Download. Official version, has 3 client/tab limit: Download)

> Dofus Remastered

Dofus Remastered increases the quality of Textures/Sprites/Spell Icons/Music/Sounds and has the option of custom made colourful Spell Icons based on element/spell type, as well as increases the FPS of animations from 20 to 40, among other graphical improvements/fixes. (Forum Thread, Features)

Not officially approved by Ankama to use.

 

> 2.0 Spell Icons

2.0 Spell Icons changes the spell icons to look like the 2.0 ones.

Dofus Remastered has great custom made colourful spell icons based on element/spell type.

 

_____Other_____

Other improvements that are not compatible with Dofus Retro (1.30).

Spoiler

 

> YggDrafus

YggDrafus is an awesome QoL feature packed client modification.

Not updated to work with Dofus Retro (1.30).

Features:

Spoiler

Options menu:

General:

  Number of spaces of the movable shortcut bar can be set to a maximum of 10 instead of 9 by default.

Display:

  Display end of fight result.

  Display the craft failure pop-up.

  Show craft result bubbles.

  Enable day/night cycle view.

  Limit before switching to creature mode can be set to a minimum of 0 instead of 5 by default.

 

Fight:

  Tactical/Anti-Lag/Creature Modes retain between fights and game launches.

  Timeline retains between fights.

  Added a grid in the Tactical Mode.

  Added spell names to the chat in the Anti-Lag Mode.

  Removed Critical Hit and Weapon animations in the Anti-Lag Mode.

 

Interfaces:

  Added a checkbox in the Maging interface that acts as holding down Control and thus will put whole Rune stacks on a double-click.

  Can keep pressing Enter to keep selling the same item batch for the same price in Markets.

  Added a Collect All button to Perceptors, Markets and Merchants.

  Market search can be done with a minimum of 3 letters instead of 4 by default.

 

Other:

  Clicking on the combat sword instantly enters the fight.

  Added a button (on the right of the emoticons/sit buttons) that highlights map change cells.

  Can equip Soul Stones by double clicking on them.

  Added the /mask command that hides all class sprites on the map.

  Character runs when clicking on a minimum of 3 cells away instead of 6 by default.

  Fixed the chat scrolling up on each received/sent message bug when using Adobe Flash Player 10.1 or higher.

  Loading the map text no longer appears and gets stuck on the screen when changing maps.

  Remember me option (in the Advanced Options below the Register button) retains password instead of just username by default.

  Added a checkbox (bottom left of the login screen after clicking Advanced Options below the Register button) that activates Streamer Mode to hide IP/Account Name.

 

Along with a lot of other graphical and other fixes that can be viewed in the #changelogs channel in their Discord server.

 

> Adobe Flash Projector

Adobe Flash Projector can be used to launch Dofus with improved performance, it uses Adobe Flash Player 10, instead of 8 that the regular launcher uses. The Adobe Flash Player 10 version is recommended as newer versions make the game stutter. To use, open loader.swf in the Dofus folder.

Not really needed as Dofus Retro (1.30) uses Adobe Flash Player 10 for the 32-bit version and Adobe Flash Player 32 for the 64-bit version.

 

> Dofus HD

Dofus HD increases the quality of Textures/Sprites/Spell Icons/Music/Sounds, as well as has great colourful spell icons based on element/spell type.

It has been merged into Dofus Remastered, along with 40 FPS Animations and a lot of other graphical improvements/fixes.

 

> 40 FPS Animations

40 FPS Animations increases the FPS of animations in the game from 20 to 40.

It has been merged into Dofus Remastered, along with Dofus HD and a lot of other graphical improvements/fixes.

 

> 2.0 Looks

2.0 Looks is a full Dofus 1.29 zipped with a lot of textures changed to look like 2.0.

Not compatible with Dofus Retro (1.30).

 

> Updated Dofus.exe

Updated Dofus.exe is a modified launcher made by Starlight, it uses Adobe Flash Player 18 instead of 8 that the regular launcher uses by default and fixes the chat scrolling up on each received/sent message bug. Use Dofus.exe to launch the game instead of the updater/uplauncher.

Not recommended to use along with Dofus Retro (1.30) as it breaks some menu stuff, also better to use Adobe Flash Projector with Adobe Flash Player 10 as newer versions make the game stutter.

 

> Tactical/Anti-Lag Mode

Tactical/Anti-Lag Mode adds Tactical and Anti-Lag Modes into the game.

No longer needed as a better version is implemented into Dofus Retro (1.30).

 

> Server Name Fix

Server Name Fix is a manual fix that fixes the display of server names without the need to run the game in the Spanish language.

No longer needed as it is fixed in Dofus Retro (1.30).

Very nice. Did you develop this yourself or compile it from another source?

Added a kill switch, as well as some error proofing, and an option to download the script separately.

Try running as administrator if you experience problems.

Version 10 is released, now you can do all sorts of crazy things, like choose a specific server and character, as well as the group leader! Only took us 7 hours of testing to fix everything! Play around with the idle/idlem variables if you're having problems.

Of course not. Who would do such a thing for that client :-).

You set amount of characters you want the script to run. It types in usernames/passwords and even let you chose server and character slots depending on what you fill in. It takes me 1m22s to log in 8 characters and group them according to init (F1 to F8 bindings) by clicking an icon.

Runs much smoother than the original client. I have one question for you. Glyphs seem to all be the same black color instead of the colors. Is there any way to get those back to the color versions? Thanks for the work you've put into this.

Don't think so, not sure what's specifically causing it. I've updated the post with another way of increasing performance (this one works for Macs as well), though with the caveat of having an annoying bug. Glyph colours are correct in that one.

These are client side modifications that don't interfere with in-game mechanics and are either visual or take place prior to login. There was conversation with Ankama staff previously that deemed these kinds of modifications allowable, hence why we've allowed them to be posted here.

 

Where it becomes more dangerous is the use of scrips to automatically move multiple characters in-game at once since this becomes a game enhancing benefit. This is something that has been bannable so I'd air caution here.

I read in other forums that they were banned for scripts

 

There's been tons of discussions about just AHK and as long as it doesn't effect your actions in-game, it's perfectly okay. I'd link you to OF since I know there's at least one okay from Ankama there (wasn't long ago we were talking about just that post). I am simply too lazy, but search for it - you will find it. If you are too lazy, then just trust me x). You can read about me in Batouta helmets description in-game to be 100% sure.
Some years ago there was a discussion between Blackkrakronos and Izmar (or was it Kaoly perhaps?) about the topic here as well. It might still be here, but I can't find it. It's 100% okay as long as you don't use anything else but what Gravestorm already provided. The coding is very basic and easy to understand even for someone who's not accustomed to programing. Nothing fishy or strange whatsoever. He also replaced the 2009 flash version with the latest flash version. This fixed all the lag issues we were experiencing back in 2007 up to today on 1.29. The splash screen is just an awesome bonus he threw in, haha (2012).
