EmoTracker is a powerful tool for tracking progress and items in Jets of time, as well as other games. In this blog, you will learn the basics of using Emo Tracker and how to set up auto tracking.

*The Basics

When you first get EmoTracker, it may look different from what you see in this video. However, one thing you should notice is the Clouds package manager at the top (small cloud icon). This package manager allows you to install different game trackers.

To install a game tracker, simply type in the name of the game in the search bar. For example, if you want to track progress in “Jets of Time,” type in “jets” and select the “Jets of Time” option. Click on the install button, and Emo Tracker will set up the tracker for you.

Additionally, you can customize the size of Emo Tracker by modifying the application settings. Navigate to your “documents/emotracker” folder and open the application settings file. Add the provided lines of code from the video to set your desired size. You can adjust the numbers to get the exact size you want.

Another useful feature of Emo Tracker is the ability to mark specific locations or items. For example, if you encounter a broken hilt in the game, you can mark it by clicking and holding on the corresponding location in the Emo Tracker window. This allows you to easily remember important details later on.

*Auto Tracking

If you prefer Emo Tracker to automatically track your progress, you can use the auto tracking feature. However, before utilizing this feature, you need to ensure that you have the correct emulator installed. The video description contains a link to the recommended emulator version that supports Lua scripting, and ota important you use the 32 bit version.

Once you have the necessary emulator installed, you can set up auto tracking in Emo Tracker. Open the Lua script window in the emulator by clicking on “File” and selecting “Lua Scripting” and then “New Lua Script Window.” Point the emulator to the connector file located in the “programfilesx86/emotracker/connectors/snes9x” folder. Select the “connector.lua” file.

After setting up the emulator, return to Emo Tracker and right-click on the auto tracking icon, represented by a robot head. From the dropdown menu, select the “SNES Lua” option, which will establish the connection between Emo Tracker and the emulator.

If you encounter any issues or need to reset the settings, you can click on “Reset to Default” and then start the tracking process again by right-clicking on the robot head and selecting “Start.” Remember, right-clicking is the key to interacting with the robot head.

Once the connection is established, you will be able to see your progress in the Emo Tracker window. It will display bosses defeated, acquired items, characters, and maps of unexplored areas. This information is particularly helpful in optimizing your gameplay.

Thank you for checking out this guide on Emo Tracker basics and auto tracking. I hope you found it helpful in enhancing your gaming experience. Happy tracking!
