welcome! great bunch of folks here. i came into this completely blind as to how it works (still not perfect at it) but if i can suggest one thing is to watch the introductory videos in full and go step by step with them ... they make configuring and learning the basics relaxing and fun and by the end of it you'll have a group setup and ready to go

Don’t forget to check out Kissassist, RGMercs, CWTN Plugins. All are great at helping automate (not AFK) management of your teams - ie spell or ability use, crowd control, buffing, etc.

Have fun. Happy grouping.

From what I can tell, UI’s seem to be a matter of personal preference. Sic posted a version of Zilz’s (sp) UI that he and Karen modified. I tried it; I liked it; I am sticking with it. I only have a single 27” monitor setup so I tend to favor a more minimalist UI.

There is a thread or two here on RG that talk about UI’s or just check out EQ Interface. The choices are endless. :)

Be well. Happy hunting.

Thanks for the tip! Seems like I have been spending more time learning about macros and ini files than actually playing. I also have only 1 monitor, same size. Being an old gurl, I wish I could make the text in the game easier to read. I'm sure there is a way LOL Update...I can't find the search button on EQInterface. LOL

No, from my POV 4 is low lmao Thanks for the font tip!
Now if I can get other UI's to work. Only 1 does and I did everything the same but still no joy!! I have like 4 copies of EQ on the desktop and I have the same prob. LOL I am so determined to sort that out. Meanwhile, my peeps on the PEQ server are waiting for me to get at least lvl 70. The patience they have with me!
Thanks again!

I have been learning so much from this site!
I am dangerous now that I know enough to totally crash 1 Toon! I am getting errors that my current UI, the only one that loads up out of the 7 I have tried. The only one that loads up is TegweyenUI. I'm glad I like it LOL Baby steps here 🤣

eq has been making frequent changes to the default ui, which often requires updates to any custom uis

Back to the proverbial chalkboard. I have managed to tinker with ini files, and now nothing works. No plugins anymore. Tempted to just reformat at this point...

How much of a donation do I need to pay to get the top button to say something other than make a donation? Can I use my 560 red cents??

what are you talking about?

do you have a alert banner that has an "x" button to close it saying "i've seen this notification and i don't want it any longer" --- if so, press it

Nope. More like I see youtube vids showing the top option is something other than Donate here. I have everything updated but my PP wont let me make a donation to open the top button. Sry Sic, I am just a noob. I like to read anyway so I have been reading for a week now and not playing. No alert banners, just a donate button. I just figured u had to donate in order for the whole program to work? I'm sure I missed something. I have special powers tho! I have Lvl 2 access!!!

The Holy Trinity is still strong in EQ.

1) Tank
2) Crowd Control
3) Healing

Depending upon your computer set-up, you should be able to easily put together a full team of 6, if you so desire. The tools here at Red Guides make managing a full team a breeze. A generic group template is typically:

1) Tank
2) Crowd Control
3)Healer
4) DPS
5) DPS
6) Utility

Which class you choose to use in each role is up to the player and the player's personal tastes.

Be well. Happy theory crafting
