Introduction

LiterAUTO Buddy is an invaluable tool for Yahoo Literati players. It scans a game board, provides all possible solutions that can be made from the letter tiles in hand, shows how they can be placed on the board, places the word tiles for you, and (if that weren't enough) even autoplays.

LiterAUTO Buddy is feature rich and much more intuitive than any other Literati solution available. It helps players build their vocabulary, overall Literati skills and also serves as a reference tool as you can save your games. And it does personal ratings and ladder rankings a world of good, too!


The Interface (GUI)

LiterAuto Buddy has a simple layout and is easy to use. The main attraction is the miniaturized copy of the Literati gameboard. This GUI will mimic the game as it progresses. The rest of the interface makes it a breeze to accomplish tasks with a click of a button. When scan+solve is clicked, a list of words is generated which can then be filtered according to your personal wants. Selecting a word and pressing the play button will result in that word being entered into the board. The clear feature will do exactly that - clear the Buddy so that it's ready for a new game. And let us not forget the autoplay feature! As the name suggests, this is where users can engage LiterAuto Buddy in automatic play.

To view these selections in greater detail, select the Interface link below.

LiterAuto Buddy also offers an arrangement of menu options: Game, Options, Rooms and Help. You can learn more about these by reading below.

Menu Options

The Game menu contains game tutor options. You can save your game for future reference and open them again whenever you want.
The Options menu allows you to access LiterAuto Buddy's dictionary editor and settings and change them to suit your needs (see below). It also offers an opportunity to refer a buddy (tell a friend) about LiterAuto Buddy and/or request a new feature.
The Rooms menu has one of most valuable features of LiterAuto Buddy. It contains backdoors to each of Yahoo's Literati rooms. This feature lets you enter a room even if its full. Note: If the room does not load, login to any Yahoo Literati game with your username and password first then select the desired room from the list.
The Help menu provides instructions on how to use LiterAuto Buddy, a link to the Play Buddy Help Center, shortcuts to buy and register your copy, and a valuable Bug Report feature to use when LiterAuto Buddy isn't working. But perhaps the most valuable feature here is the auto check at startup which automatically checks for any updates.
Settings

Settings Action
Window - Always on top Keeps LiterAuto Buddy on top of all windows all the time.

The Dictionary Editor

The Dictionary Editor lets users do a Quick search for a specific word. It also lists all the words in a convenient searchable format. If a new word needs to be added or a specific word deleted, the dictionary editor makes this task a breeze!

 


How To Use

  • Log on to Yahoo games with your username and password.
  • Launch LiterAuto Buddy when your game opens. It automatically recognizes it and is ready to work. The interface gives users access to two prominent elements: play hint will play the next best move when manual players get stuck, while the autoplay makes the Buddy do all of the gameplay.

How To

Task Action
Scan the current game board Click the SCAN button on the LiterAUTO Buddy's interface. Tiles in hand are automatically detected.
Clear the game board Click the CLEAR BOARD button
Find all possible words from your existing set of letters Ensure that there are letters in the your letters box (you can either type them in or click SCAN to pick your tiles from the current Yahoo Literati game). Click the SOLVE button. The results are posted in the RESULTS window.
Using a word from the results list All you have to do is click on the word in the Results window and LiterAUTO Buddy will automatically find a place for it on the board.
Position Tiles A powerful built-in filter helps you find every possible placement for your words. Use the CELL FILTERS option to find suitable positions for your words.
Filter using word lengths Need a 5 letter word? Don't have time to scan through a list of 1000 possible words? Use the LENGTH FILTER option to display only words with the specified number of letters.
Checking the validity of a word Click on the CHECK button. Enter your word in the text box and click the search button.
Placing the selected word on your Yahoo Literati Board Select the word, decide on its placement and click PLAY

Optimizing Performance

  • Definitions: To get the meaning (definition) of a word in the results list, right-click on the word and click on the Definition option that pops up.
  • Sorting words: Once the results list has been populated, you can sort it in the ascending or descending order of word (alphabetically), subword, or score. Just click on the relevant column heading button to sort the list. Click it again to reverse the order.
  • Blank Tiles:While playing Literati, you occasionally draw a blank tile. The blank tile can be used to represent any letter. LiterAuto Buddy uses a wildcard character i.e. the Question Mark (?) to represent a blank tile. When the solve button is clicked, LiterAUTO Buddy substitutes the ? with each letter of the alphabet and builds the results list.

HELP!

It won't recognize the game window

Now make sure that internet browser zoom is set to 100% and that you're using appropriate display settings.

It won't work

Select the Bug Report feature under the HELP tab on the Buddy. Fill in the required fields, capture the screen, and then send it. Play Buddy Support will receive it and respond to you via e-mail.
