Simple question really but it annoys me every time. Sometimes I buy 250 of the same bags, for example 'Heavy Moldy Bag' from the TP. When I have them all in my inventory I end up clicking 500 times on the icon to open all 250. Surely there must be a better way to do this?
It's not just loot bags mind you, but also using salvage kits and consuming Essences of Luck :)
A simple Autohotkey script can save a lot of doubleclicking. For example, the following sends a double click when typing alt-d:
#IfWinActive ahk_class ArenaNet_Dx_Window_Class $!d::Click 2
While it's true that the use of scripts is not officially sanctioned, it's very unlikely a player will be banned for using a script that essentially redirects or remaps some input; not to mention that it would be very hard for the game to detect such scripts and prove a script was indeed used when you also have many keyboards and mouses with custom software that does essentially the same.
There is a popular script for example, called Immersive Combat Mode which many players use for Guild Wars 2. The version 1.0 of this mod summarizes the situation as:
ArenaNet are ok with mods that don't give an advantage over other players and don't impact others negatively
