Took me about 2-3hrs of fiddling around to actually get MQ2 working. Now at the command list it seems moderately overwhelming. Is it recommended I just mess with the commands until I figure it out? Usually a solid way to go.

The vids are really the best way to go. I recommend pausing often and just going through them one by one, binge watching them and then trying to remember what the instructions were (like I did) is a terrible mistake and will just lead to frustration.

Certainly appreciate everybody's feedback. A nice rest to reflect on what I learned and then a short application of the commands to social macros and we are rolling. Thanks ^^

There are macros that are more complex than others and require more effort to set up.
My feeling is rgmerc might be a good starting point, because it will mostly work without any configuration.

I had taken a long break, came back and EQ alone had a lot of changes, the walk throughs are nice, not everything is answered, but it's enough to be dangerous LOL... that said, I definitely found that learning and refining the INI taught me the most; experiment here, ask a question here, apply it there, seemed to teach me the most about it... I really enjoyed the older INI websites that walked me through (though I believe some are out of date or whatnot... they still were a really great place to learn a basic knowledge)


Still one of my favorites for learning and quick reference, if there's better, I am unaware... another one I liked for / macro commands was


Just a couple nuggets that help me sort it out... and then again, asking questions of the community here @ RG has been HUGE!

Good Luck and Welcome Back!

Just my two [red] cents!
