iam new to this, so i need to learn how this works out, helpfull video thx.
Great high level overview!
First time using MQ2. Found the videos very helpful. Ran a couple toons with basic commands, then started a couple level 1 toons to explore using KissAssist. So far, working good.
Watching these videos got me up and running fast. For being my first time dealing with something like this I very much appreciate the details and step by step instructions.
Great guide
Returned to game and wanted a little extra help. First time using anything like this and I'm not a very computer savvy fellow. I did my homework and messaged a few people where to start and how their experience was and everyone was more than helpful. I started at level 1 with a 6 box crew sk, zerk, zerk, bst, bard, shaman and playing just the evenings after work I have made it to level 90 in a week. Super easy to setup and use out of the box Im sure there are more features I can utilize and more i can be doing but i'm super happy with the results so far. after a few days i figured out how to edit my kissassist files myself and then found it very easy to customize my abilities. I have had to ask some dumb questions and everyone was great and responded quickly to my question. Great that so many people have provided ini files for us to use I have found some great ones and some that were a little buggy for my setup and in just a minute or two you can adjust to something new. Super easy and fast! I wish I would have gotten into this years ago cant wait to see what current content is like with this setup. I'm going to add MQ2Berzerker next and see how that goes but so far if your on the fence or intimidated with your pc dont be this is so easy to use. The only pitfall i fell into was maybe updating to often and hitting bazaar for gear to often. I think I would have been further along if i just did the grind and not worried about staying maxed on skills/gear every 5 levels.
Appreciate the walk throughs
Thank you for these videos. As someone coming from the EQEmu side of things, these were a godsend. These helped me with some basic level help that anyone can follow, especially since I have never used RGs MQ2 before. I've used older versions of MQ2, and a macro similar to KA. Now I have 50C, and I am ready to party.
This was Fantastic!! All the info I found myself needing was linked to here, or in the vids. Great job /cheer, and many thanks!
I am an off an on EQ player and I found this software "somewhat" helpful with boxing. I find the KissAssisst macro and MQ2### scripts to be somewhat wonky. The Nav goes into walls (yes I updated the mesh), the scripts make casters buff themselves and melee pick their noses while I get a beat down. (even with checking some settings) I used it in a 6 toon group, and then a 3 toon / 3 merc group and felt the same. IN THEIR DEFENSE I have only reached a lvl of 60 and have a feeling the macro and scripts may perform better at higher levels. But for me, I found them more of an annoyance than a use.
HOWEVER, I will say that I have found the DanNET commands extremely useful because they allow me to issue commands to my other group members from my main (heal, paci, root, etc) which in itself is more than worth the sub fee. I am currently using this setup in a 3 toon / 3 merc setup but can very much see its uses with a 6 toon team.
Many thanks, and please keep up the great work!! /salute
I left for 6 months. The videos are a great refresher. Have you thought about making videos to advance from here?
I have, but I'm stuck on what topics an intermediate player should know. If we can figure that out, perhaps a collaboration with Sic for the next series.
