The manual text at the link I posted also tells you how to move the OSD icons to different positions on the LCD and change their font size.
The script just randomly pushed the shutter button over and over and over. So when the built-in Canon function takes its three shots, it's random luck when the next set of three shots will start. It also takes the Canon firmware some time to save the resulting images to the SD card - typically 1 to 2 seconds per shot.

That's actually "my" script too - not that there is much to it
Probably. I have not played with shooting using Canon's built-in bracketing so I'll take a quick look. It might be easier to just disable the Canon mode and have the script manage the exposure directly. You can usually get continuous shooting down below 1 second per exposure that way.
CHDK will remember everything you setup (unless there is a bug in the ports). It won't remember things setup in the Canon menus though. But RAW enable and the currently loaded script should be retained between power cycles.Try this test (assuming you are using SD Card lock booting) :Turn your camera on.Enter <ALT> mode.Select a script by pressing the Func/Set button and then Load Script from File ...Exit <ALT>Enter <ALT>Is the script you picked still selected (as seen in the lower left hand corner of the screen)??Exit <ALT>Power off the camera.Turn your camera on.Enter <ALT> mode.Is the script you picked still selected (as seen in the lower left hand corner of the screen)??

I wish it can remember that I used the timer before and loads it with the timer selected, so that I don't have to do it every time.
Now the only thing I need to do is, manually load CHDK everytime (any way to automate it so that it loads auotmatically everytime, unless I remove the CHDK from the SD Card?) and to Select the Timer options again for my AEB Bracketing to work.
Hmmmm .. I posted a reply to this 12 hours ago but it seems to have disappeared. Strange.
Updated script attached.
Saving and restoring Canon settings with CHDK is quite difficult. Especially self timer settings. Sorry.
What? There are two ways to load CHDK - the "firmware update" method and the "Card Lock Autoboot" method. The later causes CHDK to load every time the camera is powered on. I'm surprised you have come this far and not noted that. The only complete and correct description of that is here : Prepare Your SD Card : Bootable SD Card MethodIf you use the STICK Utility linked at the top of that page it will automatically setup the SD card correctly for autobooting.
Both methods yield the same error. I googled and found that there were others too who had this error. My googling lead me to this YouTube video, where one commented about having the exact same error. He even mentioned having the same camera as mine - Canon PowerShot SX160 IS. I did NOT search with my cam model, yet the result showed that cam model, so perhaps it has something to do with the camera?
I tested it with both ticking and unticking the lock focus thing and I think it still focuses. To confirm, I tested by clicking a pic of something less than a foot away (but NOT in macro range) and then moving back 6 feet and yet all the images were focused, so I think it still focuses.
Anyways, I tried 2 methods, I used the STICK app and then when it didn't work,

So I guess this the the most automated I can get?
My sx160 autoboots just fine. Since this is a modern camera, you should NOT use a multi-partition card. If you have tried partitioning at some point, you might want to go back and do a fresh format.The missing modules errors means that CHDK can't find the .flt files that are supposed to be in CHDK/MODULESEither they aren't there, or you create a multi-partition card when you should have, or something else is preventing CHDK from accessing the files.
I tested the script changes on my G10 and Powershot N and the focus lock worked on both. Did you have the camera in P mode and continuous & servo autofocus turned off?
That video contains a lot of inaccurate information about CHDK. As usual with many youtube videos, the author spent 10 minutes reading some obsolete installation information and then felt qualified to make an instructional video. I contacted him directly pointing out the flaws - he didnt' care.
STICK has worked for many hundreds of CHDK users. What did you see that makes you think it does not work?
No it's not. As reyalp points out above, the SD Card Lock autoboot will work with your camera. You just have to figure out what step(s) you have missed. Telling us more about how STICK worked for you would be a good start.
On a 64-bit system and on some 32-bit systems, even if you are logged on as an Admin, you will have to start STICK using STICKX.CMD, otherwise STICK will not be able to analyse your card. It should display a message like this: STICK needs permission to analyse diskand the log will contain a message like this: Failure checking device '\\.\PHYSICALDRIVE2' - error 5If you see this message, or are running a 64-bit Windows system, terminate STICK and double-click the STICKX.CMD file. This will display a dialog allowing you to temporarily 'elevate' yourself to Admin level by selecting a user account with these privileges. STICK will then run properly.Unfortunately this temporary elevation breaks drag-and-drop (it's a known Windows problem) so you will have to use the Browse button to locate a photo.
Now I put the microSD in the Adaptor, moved the slider into LOCKED position and put the card in cameraBooted using the Camera Power (On/Off) buttonFlashes the CHDK logo then, ERROR: MISSING MODULES on upper left screenMemory Card Error (in the middle of the screen)Memory Card Locked (flashes for a sec or two in the lower center of the screen)
This is definitely not normal. The Card Error and Card Locked messages are from the Canon firmware. With CHDK running, the card locked message should never show, since CHDK hides the lock state I confirmed that the 1.5.0-4379 autobuild works fine on my sx160.Have you tried a different card or a different adapter? It's possible that the switch in the camera which is supposed to detect the lock isn't working correctly, or that it doesn't work with this particular card.edit:this may be related http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=11487.0I have never seen this problem on my sx160.
