[HELP] Batch Script For Starting & Stopping FAH

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have been trying to find ways to automatically start, save, and stop FAH. I currently need to be able to have the program run on a schedule where it turns off for 4-6 hours a day and then turns back on.

I am not very savvy with batch, any help is appreciated.

BUMP - Sorry, I am unable to help you on this.

I would make to batch files, one to start it, and one to save and close it. I would then use Task scheduler to run the start script when you want to start FAH and then run the stop script when you want it to break.

I am not very familiar with batch, but I think the script would be rather simple, and googling how to start a program batch should get you started.

Here's a couple links to get you going, I am not very familiar with FAH so I can't be a lot of help with that part.

So one neat thing I found, is using telnet. FAH is able to be accessed via the default port. So I will be experimenting more with that
