Morning Redguides, having a bit of trouble getting this to work. Steps I have taken:

1) Downloaded SIC's example Ini File and changed it to toonname etc and am simply renaming the the name of the toon I use:
1654326799870.png

2) Copied SIC's Icebound Avatar of War "Events"

3) /event Load in game:
1654326857081.png

4) /event list (which is where the failure is)
1654326882430.png

5) Copied code (from my warrior running MQ2War)
[kneel]
trigger=#1#The ice encrusted Avatar of War shouts that |${Me}| must bend the knee!#2#
command=/if (!${Me.Ducking}) /multiline ; /attack off ; /keypress DUCK
[stand]
trigger=#1#The Avatar of War nods, accepting the subservience of those that gave it#2#
command=/if (${Me.Ducking}) /multiline ; /keypress DUCK ; /attack on
[avatarp2]
trigger=#1#The Avatar of War changes the rules and chooses a new field of battle!#2#
command=/multiline ; /target npc Icebound Avatar of War ; /attack on ; /nav spawn Icebound Avatar of War

Anyone tell me what I'm missing?

Thank you.

Are you sure you are renaming the file with the correct extension? The faq gives some common examples of issues

Hi Sic,

Yes - Just been through the FAQ and can confirm, happy to issue the file extension directly also. all saying: MQ2Events_PLAYERNAME.ini

Weird.
A stretch, but what program did you use to edit the INI file? Is it possible you opened it with Word or something and then saved the file before changing the extension?

further update as I try and work my way through this for some reason, my Warrior now has his events load when I do an event list.

The exact same file (just with zerk instead of war) returns this on the Berzerker?

Going to keep trying.

For the Aten event, will this work for a shaman instead of having the group run?

Shaman Hot:
[AtenRun]
trigger=#*#Aten Ha Ra points at#*#
command=/multiline ; /docommand /boxr Pause; /stopcast; /target clear; /timed 10; /docommand /keypress F2;  /cast "Spirit of Renewal"; /docommand /box Unpause;

It will depend on the group. It certainly would work if you have a solid tank. I found using SK Epic and SK HOT I was able to turn off the events and just plow through.

I'll second Szazor, its going to depend on the group, gear, AA etc. But the way you have it might work for you and your setup. Give it a go and see what happens.

I setup my group a little to the Eastern side of the center of the event area, then ONLY my shaman runs away to the West no matter who gets the emote. In the main pile is my cleric. So either way at least one healer is still able to heal and it works out good.

INI:
[AtenRun]
trigger=#*#Aten Ha Ra points at #1# with one arm#*#
command=/multiline ; /g Running away! ; timed 1 /mqp on ; /timed 5 /afollow off ; /timed 6 /nav stop ; /timed 7 /target clear ; /timed 8 /chase off ; /timed 9 /nav wp West ; /timed 40 /mqp off; /timed 150 /chase on

So to get these events to work do i just save the mq2events_mytoonsname.ini in the config folder? or do they get saved somewhere else? I have not been able to get these to work as of late. i do a /events list and it will list them all but nothing actually happens when it is supposed to. Thanks, trying to get my toons to run away as specific times to kill the blade on TLP in PoW and this would have been perfect

Just checking to see if the mq2events plug in is currently working? trying to get it to make my toons do things like take group invites, run away, but nothing seems to be working. I made a mq2events_mytoonsname.ini file for each toon and saved them in the config folder with the other ini's and then made sure the plug was loaded and when i do a /event list is lists them all but not doing them. do i need to save the ini's to a differnet folder?

Yep, but use the right tool for the job

Mq2autoaccept you should use for taking trades and invites etc

Also there is no reason to make a new thread when you're already asking in the correct location.

OK, after lots of reading today, for the ini on each character; Is there a Cap to how big these ini files should get? As such, should the number of items it checks not exceed say 20 items? the OP post covers 5 to 6 i believe. So adding more to this, will it lag the system since it has to read the file?

For instance, if i did events for all of COV and TOL, would these all fit in the same file and not lag out because of the amount items it has to search through?

you should consider using LEM imo, much easier to utilize and manage than mq2events

I found the bug, apparently in EQ

Log file shows : [Thu Oct 27 23:56:45 2022] char tells you, 'selos '

note the space after selos. This is new on tells apparently. Confirmed multiple times on every tell there is now an extra space in log file. No, i didnt type a space

added space in trigger and all is good

After some testing, I believe I have a clue to what's broken.
Triggers that have a PC character name in it are broken. For example:
MyDude tells the group, 'Follow Me!'

Removing the character name from the trigger works.
#*# tells the group, 'Follow Me!'

Looking into /eventdebug, the feed of chat text has character names as some sort of hyperlink that change color when you hover over them. Just a hunch, but I think mq2event doesn't know how to parse whatever this hyperlink stuff in the feed is. .
