So, i multibox using mq2 and nothing else on my computer, but tabbing around with alt tab gets annoying fast,so what to do?

Autohotkey to the rescue.

Now i run several groups combos, but all they have in commmon, is there is a tank, a support/dps, and a healer.
but they are on different accounts so not fun to alt tab around till you hit your sk which is on account 1, not account 3 like your warrior, or account 2 like your paladin.

So i had to come up with a way where i could just reference the character and have it switch to his window, after alot of trial and error and many frustrated days, i finally came up with this solution.

First you will need a zoned.cfg in your configs folder in mq2/release, and put this line in it.
Rich (BB code):
/SetWinTitle ${Me.Name} (Lvl:${Me.Level} ${Zone.ShortName})
sets the eq window title of that character to the character name its level and the zone shortname, you could put everything you wanted, but for this to work proper i had it start with my character names.

then you will need this autohotkey script, create a new autohotkey file and paste this in overwriting whatever was in there.
Rich (BB code):
#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
#Warn  ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.




	DetectHiddenWindows, Off
	IfWinExist, %TheWindowTitle%
		WinGet, winid, ID, %TheWindowTitle%
		DllCall("SwitchToThisWindow", "UInt", winid, "UInt", 1)
you just put in your names where you want them under what key you want them.

now what that does is when you hit ctrl+alt+1 it checks any windows on your computer for the warrior or sk, and switches to that window instantly.
same with hitting one of the other 2 hotkey combos switches to the window with thhat found character in it.

it works flawlessly for me, and i am very happy with it.

you can change the hotkeys to whatever you like.

and here:

lastly i run in windowed mode, with the windows maximized, not sure how this behaves in any other solution.

i hope someone else can get some use out of it.
