MQ2Twist - This plugin assists with the twisting of bard songs.
SYNTAX for MQ2Twist


/twist # # # # #
Twists the songs/items in the order specified (up to 10 can be specified).
Valid options are 1 thru NUM_SPELL_GEMS (EQData.h) for song gems, and 21 thru 29 for item clicks. These may be mixed in any order, and repeats are allowable. If a song is specified with a duration longer than standard (eg. Selo's Accelerating Chorus), that song will be twisted in based on it's duration. For example, riz+mana+selos

would be a 2 song twist with selos pulsed every 2.5 min.

/twist set 16 32 120 "Cassindra's Chorus of Clarity" AA

Rich (BB code):
 Set Click_16 to CastTime=32, ReCastTime=120, Name="Cassindra's Chorus of Clarity", Slot=AA ; and save to INI
INI File:

Rich (BB code):
Delay=32                 Delay between twists (in 10ths of a second). Lag & System dependant. 
Adjust=1                 This defines  how many ticks before the 'normal' 
                         recast time to cast a long song.
Long songs are defined as songs greater than 3 ticks in length. If set to 1 tick, and a song lasts 10 ticks, the song will be recast at the 8 tick mark, instead of at the 9 tick mark as it normally would.

Rich (BB code):
[Click_21] through [Click_29] 
CastTime=30              Casting Time, -1 to use the normal song delay 
ReCastTime=0             How often to recast, 0 to twist normally. 
Name="Fife of Battle"    Item name for /itemnotify 
Slot=neck                Slot name for /itemnotify
Delay, CastTime and ReCastTime are specified in 10ths of a second (so 10 = 1 second)
The INI file allows you to specify items by name (with Name=<itemname>), or by inventory slot (with Slot=<slotname>).
If both a Name and Slot are defined for an item, the plugin will attempt to swap the item into that slot using the /exchange command. After casting, it will replace the original item.
If only Name or Slot are specified, "/itemnotify Slot rightmouseup" is used to perform item clicks.

item click method
Rich (BB code):
MQ2Twist uses /itemnotify slotname rightmouseup to perform item clicks.
Rich (BB code):
 The INI file allows you to specify items by name (with name=itemname), or by
      inventory slot (with slot=slotname).  If both a name and slot are defined for an
      item, the plugin will attempt to swap the item into that slot (via the /exchange
      command) and replace the original item when casting is complete.
      The example INI file below contains examples of the types of usage.
