MQ2EQBC - (EQ box chat) This plugin is composed of two parts, a server (MQ2EQBCS.exe) and a client (MQ2EQBC).
  • The server provides a similar service to an IRC server but is much easier to setup.
  • The client is similar to the MQ2IRC client in that it monitors text that is sent to the EQBC server.

Detailed Info can be found here

EXCLUSIVE TO THE REDGUIDES COMPILE
The /bcg and /bcga command. - Might have mentioned in passing by william12 according to him.

/bcg
This command will only be sent to group members other than the character issuing the command that are connected to the EQBC server.
It will be ignored by any other character connected to your EQBC server not in that group.
Ignores mercenaries.

Rich (BB code):
/bcg //Sit
Would make everyone in the group sit EXCEPT yourself

/bcga
This command will only be sent to group members including the character issuing the command that are connected to the EQBC server.
It will be ignored by any other character connected to your EQBC server not in that group.
Ignores mercenaries.

Rich (BB code):
/bcga //Sit
Would make everyone in the group sit INCLUDING yourself

I installed the test version of Vanilla and I cannot get the EQBC server to connect.

I open the eqbc program and it says waiting to connect and when I log on my toon and type /bccmd connect I get a bad command line return. I know I am not doing something. Any help available?

Have you followed this awesome guide? MQ2EQBC Guide like the 2003 server kit part?

What exact "bad command line return" are you getting? did you ensure the mq2eqbc plugin is running? you can /plugin mq2eqbc then /bccmd connect

Edited to add a Welcome to RedGuides and the MQ2 world!

You probably actually just need to run the server program as it doesn't start up when you load up MQ. It's called EQBC.exe and is in the folder of MQ2.

Have you tried changing the IP it listens on to 127.0.0.1 instead of 0.0.0.0? If you don't connect to it with a different PC over the network then this might help.

Yup I did all that, I normally always start it by right clicking the icon from MQ. I got it to work after launching the standalone and then running debug mode it sorted it self out and worked.
