Do you have any internal or external tool, which is capable of autoclicking through widelands tutorials? This means script which will click to the game instead of human. I want to prepare such automatic tool/script for passing through 4th tutorial, to easily reproduce https://codeberg.org/wl/widelands/issues/4804

From external tools - this seems to be capable of it, but works only under windows: https://www.autohotkey.com/

You can do that with a lua script. E.g. the first tutorials do some automatic clicks.

You can start a script either by using the commandline parameter --script=path/to/lua_script (see the commandline help) or by using a debug build and opening the lua script console by pressing SHIFT + CTRL/STRG + SPACE. In this console you can run any lua script by entering dofile("complete/path/to/lua_Script").

Except for modal windows. Lua code cannot run while a modal dialog is open, not even the new plugin timers.

I'm working on a PR that automates the creation of compatibility test saves, and I implemented a commandline option for it that allows setting a timeout for automatically closing modal dialogs.
