2 Common Issues:

1. Ensure you have created your MQ2Events_ToonName.ini file in your RELEASE folder
2. Ensure the file is "MQ2Events_ToonName.ini" where ToonName is your dude like MQ2Events_Bob.ini --- you can't have MQ2Events_Bob.ini.ini or MQ2Events_Bob.ini.txt to verify your file type is correct:

open your release folder, Click the "View" tab

Move over to the right and select "File Name Extentions"

Then you should see your MQ2Events_ToonName.ini files
This is correct

This is NOT Correct

once you have correctly setup your mq2events file
and you have /events on

doing an /event list will display your "active events"
