    with uosteam you can make a macro tossing 10-15 explosions potions in a 3 seconds timeframe, its not intended, and don`t work on osi, but because the relation of emulator + uosteam, players can exploit this.

    and potions only deal damage if player have LoS (line of sight) of the target, for example actually if you toss potions on a house floor the player inside the house take damage, the same happen if you toss potions then enter in a moongate for example. you need have los of the target to the potion deal damage.

    I really don`t know how we can make the delay become like osi, maybe add an delay between actions? its something ike 450-700ms i guess.

    some shards have blocked steam from being used due exploits

    this "exploit" would rather be faulty code and not related to steam. I mean you could do the same with easyuo and you wouldnt be able to block that either ;)

    The potions just would need a delay similar to the other potions

    Ye, but steam help new players with macros, and get started, so i think the most cool will be block exploits, and let the program run.

    So, what do we need to make it bahave like EA? It needs a LOS check for the damage, as well as a cooldown between throws?

    the los check is easy to put osi-like the problem is find the correct cd, i can`t take the exact one, because i have a high latency on osi, but i think its something between 350-850

    hmm, ok, but you can toss 15-20 pots in a second in osi like servuo? no problem them.

    If you can use a script to literally throw 20 at once I say that would be an issue still.

    I didn't try it with a script, I double clicked and used last target. I'll try with a script when I get home. I was thinking, it may be subject to that 100 ms action delay that RunUO/ServUO doesn't use.
