I actually stop playing Fortnite since August and continue support until October, all that time I spent most of the time working on the script and testing the mods. Playground all the time. I deleted the game on October when Red Dead Redemption 2 came out. I don't know the current state of the game, if they change something on the inventory -I doubt it-
If the slot selection is the same navigation with the shoulder buttons then...
Selecting directly from the slots -random-, is impossible with scripts. Epic needs to add some mechanic.
With Scripts what you can do is, emulate this function, create automatic serial navigation. Meaning, if you press the key 3 (for slot 3) and you are on slot 1, the scripts "knows where is" press RB|R1 twice for you to select the slot 3.
Then you want get back to slot 1, press the key 1 and scripts knows that is on slot 3 so press LB|L1 twice to get to slot 1.
Then you go to Slot 5, press key 5 and script know that is on slot 1, and moves to slot 5, pressing LB|L1 once (is faster than pressing RB|R1 4 times).
That's automatic serial navigation.
It has many drawbacks:
+ First All the slots must be Filled
+ timings (presses) must be very tight to be faster, than manual navigation but not so much so they work properly
+ network lag messes the automatic navigation
+ if you are in a heated battle and tap from one slot to another quickly, script doesn't keep up the change and you might end on a slot you don't want. (unreliable)
+ If you drop an item the script can't detect it, and the serial navigation fails because all the slots must be filled, intermediate empty spaces can't be validated by code. Remember, script doesn't see what is happen in game, that's user intervention, put the items one after the other and notify the script how many slots are filled.
+ Script needs to be reset constantly in case something went wrong. (same as above and is a huge hindrace)
+ This feature is only for keyboard users, and T2 users must to use a different setup. Requires from the user create an Input Translator and manipulate code to assign manually the keys for the slots. This Script is meant for everybody, controller users, mouse and keyboard, foot-switch etc. That's why I never implement this on public
+ Script requires tracking the pickaxe, and this has many issues by itself, is not possible to do it successfully without user intervention.
Believe me I did it try, many algorithms to optimized and realize it becomes in something that you have to manage, doesn't worth it, it can't be reliable that's why I never put it on this script. I did it for some fellas who asked a tailored script, and they eventually drop it. You will be better switching manually, Epic needs to implement this like they did with build.
About the script Honestly, I was about to delete the script from GTuner because I can't continue support as frequent as before, but is not that I don't want it or because I don't play, Is because on Holiday season I work two shifts and I don't have time to write code, until February.
However I didn't delete it because some fellas were kind and generous enough to donate, and this make me feel comprise to keep having the script available, thanks to them is still available.
