Strategy - Useful Hotkey Ideas (1 Viewer)

Hey Guys,

I was wondering what useful hotkeys you guys use for running your groups. I like to drive my warrior and I want to spend less time swapping between windows to press buttons and I want more ideas!

I have the normal hotkeys like follow me, chase on, chase off, a hotkey to turn everyones kiss or auto whatever on from my warrior. An invite everyone button and a move to me and mqp all / end all.

But i've also started to make hotkeys like

Invis group which is /bct castername //alt act 1210
Lev group /bct castername //alt act 1666
Teleport bind /bct castername //alt act 456
teleport guild hall anchor /bct castername //alt act 839
move to me /bcg //moveto loc ${Me.Y} ${Me.X}

Any ideas would help me tons!

I use an invis off /bcaa //makemevisible
I have a switch target /bcaa //switch
I do a dispell with /bct castername /mqp //alt activate 547 //mqp
I have one for clicking the sul vius mirror which is just a //keypress 7
I have an evac. /bct wizardname //mqp //stopcast //alt activate 43 /mqp
Mount and dismount. keypress for mount. /bcaa //dismount
Backoff and pet back off /bcaa //backoff and //pet backoff

OMG i like the //makemevisible thats great

Here's a new one for me today

Click fellowship for whole group (is there a wayto do this without opening my bags like can you just /fellowshipport or somehting)
/bcga //keypress OPEN_INV_BAGS
/bcga //shift /itemnotify $\{FindItem[=Fellowship Registration Insignia].InvSlot} rightmouseup

Another question, is there alias support to make aliases for our own commands?

/itemnotify "${FindItem[=Fellowship Registration Insignia]}" rightmouseup

the \ to escape $ in ${Finditem does not work with /bcga

you can create alias's in macroquest.ini then /bcga //aliasname

like

Rich (BB code):
[Aliases]
/clickfellowship=/itemnotify "${FindItem[=Fellowship Registration Insignia]}" rightmouseup
/bcga //clickfellowship

oh but the escape did work in my bcga, that hot button had my whole group use their clicky.

I'm out of thanks's though but that alias will be super helpful! I need to make one for my tbm mirror

you could also cast it as an item, as in

Rich (BB code):
/bcaa //casting "Fellowship Registration Insignia" item
or put in a sub in your macro like

Rich (BB code):
.....
		/if (${ChatText.Find[go to campfire]}) /call GoToCampfire
		/if (${ChatText.Find[campfire click]}) /call GoToCampfire

....
Sub GoToCampfire
	/if (!${RDPause} && !${Me.Invis}) /call Cast "Fellowship Registration Insignia" item
	/call AnnounceMessage "${ChatChannel}"  1 g "Clicking campfire port!"
	/return

You might find some use out of an ingame macro (hotbutton) like

Rich (BB code):
/pause 010, /bcaa //doortarget
/bcaa //click left door
for those times when AdvPath just doesn't want to click the door right, or you manually ran the group to one

For invis group you should do invis to undead as well in the same hotkey. Most of the time both hit at the same time making you invisible to both. Just two lines. I'm playing TLP right now so I forget who gets group invis to undead, but I think it's cleric, SK and necro?

IVu for cleric yes... shaman/dru no.

group IVU the same for AA, different for spells.

Invis is different spell and AA (druid/ranger use group camo, shaman is group silent presence, ect ect.)

You don't have to open the bags to click an item. I noticed your hot button opening the bag the item was in. I have my hot button setup for //casting "Fellowship of blah blah" and it works like a charm on every character.

Using EQBCS I find these commands helpful.

Make all toons keypress the - key , use for the gate or throne hokey
/bca //makemevisible
/pause 5
/bcaa //keypress-

Door click
/bcaa //doortarget
/pause 3
/bcaa //click left door

Pause toons and stick to follow
/bca //mqp on
/pause 1
/bca //tar toon_to_follow
/pause 1
/bca //stick 10

Resume and stop following stick off
/bca //stick off
/pause 1
/bca //mqp off

All toons to accept guild teleport
/bcaa //notify largedialogwindow LDW_YesButton leftmouseup
All toons to accept adventure
/bcaa //notify AdventureRequestWnd AdvRqst_RequestButton leftmouseup
All toons camp out
/bcaa //end
/pause 5
/bcaa //camp

Does anyone have any hotkeys that they use when multi-boxing massive number of toons?

I recently started boxing a third group - Using KA on some, MQ2WAR, MQ2ROGUE,MQ2BERZERKER on others and honestly sometimes it is like herding cats.

I would love to see a "Raid Helper" plugin that put all of these fantastic hotkeys and raid event triggers onto one window (Sort of like a SHOW Window in @CWTN 's plugin)

I have a resource where i keep some of my keys - you can see my camp on camp off and pause unpause hotkeys there >> Sic's Hotkeys <<

Hotkeys I use with my CWTN/Kiss team
-------------------------
Campoff Key
Code:
/bcga //returntocamp 0
/noparse /bcga //docommand /${Me.Class.ShortName} mode 0
/noparse /bcga //if (${Me.Class.ShortName.Equal[CLR]}) /dismount
CampOn Key (this one you will want to edit for your "driver toon" as you can see either war mode 7 or shd mode 7 is normally what i have, as well as a resetcamp for the driver as well. this will ensure when i hit my CampOn button that my driver resets their camp (since resetting your mode while in your mode doesn't, unless you cycle to 0 and then back).
Code:
/bcga //camphere on
/war mode 7 or /shd mode 7
/noparse /bcg //docommand /${Me.Class.ShortName} mode 1
/war resetcamp or /shd resetcamp
Burn Now Key
Code:
/bcga //burn
/noparse /bcaa /docommand /${Me.Class.ShortName} burnnow

Chase Key
Code:
/noparse /bcg //docommand /${Me.Class.ShortName} mode 2
/bcg //chaseon
SwitchWithMA
Code:
/noparse /bcg //docommand /${Me.Class.ShortName} switchwithma on
Pause
Code:
/bcga //mqp on
/noparse /bcga //docommand /${Me.Class.ShortName} pause on
UnPause
Code:
bcga //mqp off
/bcga //stick off
/noparse /bcga //docommand /${Me.Class.ShortName} pause off
