I use autohotkey and wrote some simple commands into it. Basically it just grinds the auction house like you normally would manually, except it is more accurate and faster.
I have set key delay times of 75ms and that seems like the quickest this game can register the keys.
So I open the game, be at horizon festival auction house, highlight the search car box, start my macro
Macro: enter search, up one, set max bid price(don't wanna pay $20milion), go up few to manufacturer, right arrow to Ford, down one, right arrow to Capri FE, down few, hit enter to search.
Then I set up an if/else for if it finds no result, go back to auction house and search again, if it does find result, it recognize it with a white pixel(part of autohotkey commands) and then it'll go into the buying command. It'll hit the Y-Down-Down-A-A
Then it will back out of the result either success or fail bid and restart the loop again for same car.
I set the loop for 5000 times and then it'll go for a exit game macro( I don't wanna leave the PC on long with the gfx card at full load)
In the past 2 days I let it run while I'm afk and has gotten 2 Ford Capri FE, 2 Austin taxi HF, multiple crown Vic, multpile Porsche and McLaren PO. I'm not a legendary painter so I don't plan on selling these for high prices. Maybe just help people out who doesn't have time to grind.
I have had it fail a few times due to my key press timing, one time I even accidently hit report on the seller when I won the car.
Downside is the macro is specific to my game/windowed mode at certain resolution. Because the pixelsearch command needs an exact xy coordinate. But that can be edited by anyone if you just run the other commands to look for pixels and it's color code.
I'll test it out a few more days before I share it. But again, it needs to be individualized.
