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.
thanks for the guide
Amazing, easy to follow and use to get going. If you follow what they say to the letter you will be up and running in no time. I found myself already (one hour into my first session) making changes and editing my INI files for all of my group.

Would give 6 stars, but only lets me give 5, Happy hunting
These got me up and running pretty fast. These were well done.
This guide gets you started with multi-boxing in as easy to understand steps.
Best of the Best
Back with the original MQ2 I was terrified to use it. This makes is so much less scary LOL. I actually think I understand whats a happened when looking at the ini. In 30 min to an hour you are up and hunting. I covers pretty much all of the basics. VERY nice. Thank you.
Great introduction to MQ2 - was very easy to get started using these videos. Thanks!
