I have pet names checked in eq to NOT show, but when I load MQ they show up. What am I missing?

The name of the pet remains, the owner title disappears. Should the pet name disappear as it does like when MQ is not running and pet names are turned off?

/caption pet, replaces code with <Pet=> which seems like it shouldn't show anything. I just put Pet=^-^ for now and all pets have cat ears..... which is a lot less clutter on raids then the full names.

After a little bit of playing Pet=${If[${NamingSpawn.Assist}, - ${NamingSpawn.PctHPs}%<<,]} will take away all naming characters, but when you click on pet, nothing appears, like when you click on players. But that is ok with me.

In the section of the same INI I talked to you about before. Change Pet=
to
Pet=None of your Business

Anything you type after Pet will be what pet names show up as. So you can use the NamingSpawn TLO as I showed you before when dealing with Captions.

The idea behind captions was to provide you the ability to do exactly as you are requesting/done.

NamingSpawn has access to the members of Spawn. For example. Member33=Master
${If[NamingSpawn.Master.ID}==${Me.ID},My Pet,Not My Pet]}
So that's saying if NamingSpawn.Master.ID is equal to my own ID, then call it "My Pet" otherwise, call it "Not My Pet"
You can use a lot of information. But keep in mind that the captions are constantly being updated and the more information, the MQ2 has to process to display the information.

Using \n will cause you to go to the next line.
Pet=Dist: ${NamingSpawn.Distance3D}\nLvl: ${NamingSpawn.Level}
Would show

Dist: 30
Lvl: 74

Above the pet.
