I hope this is the right forum to post this in, I haven't been on MR long enough to know my way about and the customs here. I need the following functionality in a tiny application, and am wondering if it theres anyone here who would be willing to write it as an exercise in programming. I play a realtime online war game (via shockwave/flash/web browser) that has no sound alerts for incoming attacks. Often, I (or my other allies) get attacked in the middle of the night while I (we) are asleep. I want an app that can do scheduled (for instance, every 5 minutes) inspection of a specific area of the screen for different colors where the attack alert shows up (one color is attacks on me, another for attacks on allies), and compare them to a set color(s) and EITHER a) return the color or the result (True/False) to Applescript or Automator, which could then sound an alert sound for me, or b) could do all that, check the color, compare it to list of known colors, AND sound the alarm. I know, its weird, but I could get a better nights sleep if I did not have to sleep with one eye open to keep checking. Thanks for the consideration.
