Tired of clicking on Zynga’s Farmville on Facebook?

Written by Cornelius J. van Dyk on . Posted in Blog

Well, this should solve your problem then.  I got roped into Farmville by my fiance and didn’t want to spend the time doing mundane things like clicking on farm tiles over and over and over again to harvest, plough and plant each time.  What to do, what to do?
 
I looked around for an auto player script, but since the game is Flash based, no script could identify any elements to click on.
Sure there were a couple of macro players out there, but they all require that you install the macro software and more importantly, they required that your farm be setup in a specific way which made it hard to use.
 
As an old C developer, I knew it wasn’t that hard to simulate simple mouse click, so I cracked open Visual Studio 2008 and wrote a quick C# app to do just what I needed.
 
The app is pretty simple.  You train it where to click.  This takes the longest time, but only needs to be done once.  From then on, you just load your farm and fire off the Auto Clicker. 🙂
 
Here’s my Youtube video showing how it works:
 
Download the App here:
 
Once you’ve downloaded it, remove the .REMOVETHIS extension from the file name so that the app would be an .exe app.
No, there’s no virusses or trojans or anything in there.  Scan it with anything you wish to be sure.
Anyway, enjoy!
 


Cheers

Born and raised in South Africa during the 70's I got my start in computers when a game on my Sinclair ZX Spectrum crashed, revealing it's BASIC source code. The ZX had a whopping 48K of memory which was considered to be a lot in the Commodore Vic20 era, but more importantly, it had BASIC built into the soft touch keyboard. Teaching myself to program, I coded my first commercial program at age 15.

After graduating high school at 17, I joined the South African Air Force, graduating the Academy and becoming a Pilot with the rank of First Lieutenant by age 20. After serving my country for six years, I made my way back into computer software.

Continuing my education, I graduated Suma Cum Laude from the Computer Training Institute before joining First National Bank where my work won the Smithsonian Award for Technological Innovation in the field of Banking and Insurance. Soon I met Will Coleman from Amdahl SA, who introduced me to a little known programming language named Huron/ObjectStar. As fate would have it, this unknown language and Y2K brought me to the USA in 1998.

I got involved with SharePoint after playing around with the Beta for SharePoint Portal Server 2003. Leaving my career at Rexnord to become a consultant in 2004, I was first awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Award for SharePoint in 2005, becoming only the 9th MVP for WSS at the time. I fulfilled a life long dream by pledging allegiance to the Flag as a US citizen in 2006. I met the love of my life and became a private consultant in 2008. I was honored to receive my ninth MVP award for SharePoint Server in 2013.
