      1. Please mention this directly in the blog, that the filename must end in user.js. I had to waste a lot of time figuring out why the directions in the post didn’t work, then I had to read the comments.

    1. I had already mention this issue on MH AutoBot 1.19 post. Chrome has some problem on timer, even the mousehunt timer also did not display correctly. For temporary fix, enable aggressive mode or use other browser.

  6. Great script there. Just want to find out how I can change the king’s reward warning sound.

    I understand that the script probably directs to a midi file online, may I know which line of coding should I edit to change it?

  8. I don’t get it. Why don’t you write:
    Step 1: Make sure your script has the extension .user.js
    Step 2: Drag the file over to chrome
    Step 3: Press continue to install

    Not a very good guide, if I have to read the comments to be able to install a script. When you donwload your script from sites such as pastebin, you get a .txt file, not a .user.js file. I had figured step 2 and 3 on my own, before I read the article. But it doesn’t work unless it has the right extension..

  10. With the new Google Chrome update, doing your steps does not work anymore. You need to upload this script onto the Chrome Web Store for it to work.

    How do I go about using your script without chrome prompting to me that I can only use extensions via their web store?
