if you are running kiss or some other macros - sometimes toons will stop navigation to complete what they are doing --- I always pause my dudes when I'm moving otherwise they'll stop halfway

Code:
/mqp --- this is a toggle
/mqp on --- this puts macros to *pause*
/mqp off --- this puts macro to *unpause*

did you restart your EQBC server? and are all characters connected to it?
that's what I thought at first - but he mentioned they come a few steps and stop --- guess that could be something with dannet - but since its happening with both - probably a macro issue

running KA and IHC if I type the command with dannet they will follow but nothing with Bc hotkeys
then yeah - definitely sounds like they didn't connect to your eqbc

do a /bccmd names this will tell you who is connected to your eqbcs --- if they're missing do a /bccmd connect on each toon

I have the same issue ( as do a few friends) all clients are connecting to EQBC but it feels like there is a conflict with Dannet. Trying to wrap my head around the latter as it appears to be a superior plugin (according to reviews)

I have the same issue. I can do a "come to me" call with either a plugin, a hotkey, etc., and some characters will come, others will not. I have to click a few times and then all characters eventually come. But often, the characters will stall irrespective partway across a zone. That has led to a few deaths.

Found the issue. i manually /plugin mq2dannet unload on each toon and now it is working again.

Thanks EBob, had to do the same. Would sometimes just not work, sometimes it would say it couldn't parse a command (like if I clicked the Grp Follow button). unload MQ2Dannet and it works fine. Need to switch over from EQBC but been too lazy @ this point.

hello im new to mq2 and redguides and im in game with my 3 toons and im trying to get them to follow my tank with the either the follow me or the come to me buttons .. and nothin is working i read above they all connected to eqbc server . and I do not think that i have this plugin dannet loaded cause when i tried to /plugin mq2dannet unload it sent back plugin mq2dannet not found in red .. I know im new and not sure what i'm doing ive been using i s boxer for the last 10+ years and im used to just basic broadcasting bars and macros .. and no fancy stuffz .. any help would be appreciated ..
Edit: ok i fixed follow me , so now they all follow me .. I only loaded plugin advnav on 1 toon not the other 3.. i fgured the plugin only needed to be done on 1 toon .. so once i loaded it on all 3 now they all follow .. However Come to me still doesnt work but i get a different error now its saying cannot navigate-no mesh file loaded .. ? so where do i get this mesh file ? or is it another plugin i need to load ? thanks

EDIT: hiya me again .. so i figured the issue out .. I didnt have any mesh's downloaded into the mq2nav folder .. so I went to mq2 redguides and dowloaded the zip file and extracted all into the mq2nav folder .. then I unloaded the plugin and reloaded it and it works fine :P im soo happy I figured this out on my own .. thank you
