GSAK Macro for 2013 ABC Challenge - GC4291X
- I've just posted a GSAK macro file to this forum that will check your 'Found' database for compliance with Big Guy in Texas / Blizzard's 2013 ABC Challenge Cache - GC4291X
The differences from last year are as I see it :
1. Anywhere in Texas - not just CTX counties
2. Addition of 'special character' caches. For the purposes of the macro I've used the following list of special characters, if there are others that need adding, please let me know.
(It stops checking after 5 are found as that's all that is needed)
3. WARNING There are many, many combinations of finds possible and order matters. For example - do you count 'Final Stop #1' as an 'F' or as a '#' or as a'1'? This macro does not check every possible order combination, life is too short, but it does check many. It is always possible that it might miss the 'perfect' combination.
4. As written, the macro requires that finds are in 2013. If you want to change that, please do so. That's just my personal choice. Change $FoundDate = "2013-01-01" in line 21 to whatever date you want to use.
After it runs you will get a window showing you your progress, and there is a copy of that in your clipboard ready to be pasted into a message, like this, I still have 11 to find this year...
