Wiki Manual
This plugin checks to see if a GM is in the zone, as they're usually running special events or just chatting with players. What fun!

A GM can only be detected if they choose to be detectable. If a GM wants to be undetected, this plugin will respect their privacy.

/gmcheck [on|off] [option [on|off]]Lists past GM sightings, and toggles various settings to alert you about fun and exciting GM events in your zone.

Rich (BB code):
${GMCheck} returns TRUE, FALSE, or DISABLED.
${GMCheck.Status} returns TRUE, FALSE, or DISABLED.
${GMCheck.Count} returns the number of GM's known in the zone.
To add a sound warning for when a gm appears you must create an entry in the ini file.

MQ2GMCheck.ini is not created until it encounters a GM so you may need to create the file.
Open MQ2GMCheck.ini in your favorite editor.
Add the following text to the top of the ini file

Rich (BB code):
Sound=C:\\Program Files\\Macroquest2\\gmcheck.wav[/Audio]
The sound= must point to the correct folder of your sound file. The folders must be separated by \\ for MQ2GMCheck to properly read it. The default sound gmcheck.wav is included in the compile. You can use any .wav file for the audio warning. You just need to correctly point the sound= to it in the in file.

You can test the celebratory audio in MQ2 after you have loaded mq2gmcheck with the following command.
Rich (BB code):
/gmcheck testaudio
