Thread: Type-ahead lines...

  1. #1

    Question Type-ahead lines...

    How good are they?

    As in, is this something I have been missing out on for years...or are they pretty useless?

    Curious on those who actually have purchased and used type-ahead lines on their account...how many do you have, etc.

    They were something you'd be concerned about in 1996.
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    I use 4 and it makes a big difference when using ;go2 (as in ;go2 typeahead=4)

    If you're travelling the same speed using only one more power to you but I don't see how.

    Are you talking about lich type ahead, or gemstone type ahead?

    lich uses however many type ahead lines you have available.

    I still think that in 20 something years of playing GS I have never once felt like I needed them, let alone thought of them as something I'd be willing to spend extra money on.

    Lich uses how many you set. I always had kine set to 5 and it worked fine with regular the premium type ahead allowances. Buying more with PPs is a waste.

    I think I bought an extra type ahead when it was first offered, but its been so long ago I'm not sure if I bought any more than that one. I set typeahead=4 for ;go2 and it seems to work well.

    Your go2 should be using at least six!

    The clerk says, "Hrrrm, Mogonis, you do seem to be eligible for full citizenship. Just WRITE your name in the book if you wish to make it official."

    >write book
    You sign your name into the citizenship registration book, fully agreeing to the duties and privileges full citizenship provides you.

    Agree.

    ;go2 --typeahead=6

    is the command.

    As for actual GSIV typeahead, I didn't even know that was still a think. I know non-premium accounts used to be something like 2? to premium's 4? and it made a difference when I was still on dial-up.

    EDIT:

    It seems the max type-ahead my go2 can handle is 12 before it starts to error out. This allows me, through the scientifically approved method of 1-Mississiping, to travel from TSC to Solhaven's North Market in 6 Mississippis.
