drwhomphd submitted a new resource:

Using MQ2AutoLogin's Modern Secure Profiles With ISBoxer - A guide to explain how to setup autologin's modern profile system with ISBoxer

NOTE: @r1pt1de originated this process -- I'm just documenting for posterity

Pre-requisites
Following these two guides prior to this one:
  1. https://www.redguides.com/community/resources/multiboxing-everquest-the-red-guide-videos.1603/
  2. https://isboxer.com/wiki/EQ1:Quick_Start_Guide
By this point you should have a basic EQ setup that will autologin via MQ2 and at least start via ISBoxer. ISBoxer at this point...

there is a mystery here i cannot solve. launching via MQ i can get into my stuff no issues. launching via ISBOXer with profiles for the toon setup per docs. i can't figure out how to get ISBOXER to use the MQ2 profiles. my /login:whatgoeshere:tooname doesn't do anything but screw up and add random shit to the username. any suggestions?

this is a forever pain in the ass with isboxer ---

2 things
1st - in your mq2autologin.ini you need to make sure usemq2login is0 and usestationnamesinsteadofsessions is 1
2nd - I've had the information just straight get borked, and i've had to re-add the login to mq2autologin

INI:
[Settings]
# Must be disabled.
UseMQ2Login=0
# NOTE: The following line is optional, as it defaults to off.  However, it cannot be set to 1 to use sessions.
UseStationNamesInsteadOfSessions=1
NotifyOnServerUP=1

You can follow @Sic's approach as well (be clear it's not compatible or the same method as my guide). This will not work if you have multiple characters on the same account but isn't as tedious to setup.

My guess is the parameters typed in for your isboxer profile config are incorrect as the whole process is really touchy about the exact format in the guide and no typos. Toss me a screenshot similar to the ones in the guide for isboxer sometime and happy to help debug that way (so you can anonymize).

'live' should be replaced with the profile name in your autologin config
'servername' should be replaced with the shortname of your server that in your autologin config
'toonname' needs to be replaced with the character name associated with that isboxer profile. You then create an isboxer profile for each character.

Example:
ateam_firiona:stupidtoon

Thanks so much for putting this together for posterity. It's great to be able to combine the features of Innerspace (mainly virtualized files) with the security of passwords that aren't stored in plaintext.

If you want to save yourself some time and effort clicking you can bypass steps 1-5 by opening C:\Innerspace\GameConfiguration.XML and looking for this codeblock:

Code:
            <Set Name="EverQuest Default Profile" GUID="XXXXXXXXX">
                <Setting Name="Game">EverQuest</Setting>
                <Setting Name="Executable">eqgame.exe</Setting>
                <Setting Name="Parameters">patchme</Setting>
                <Setting Name="Path">C:\Games\EverQuest</Setting>
                <Setting Name="Kill Before Launch">NULL</Setting>
                <Setting Name="Preload Executable" />
                <Setting Name="Preload Parameters" />
                <Setting Name="Preload Path" />
                <Setting Name="Force Monitor">Application Controlled</Setting>
                <Setting Name="Loader">-1</Setting>
                <Set Name="Pre-Startup Sequence" GUID="XXXXXXXXX">
                </Set>
            </Set>
Paste the following as many times as you need it directly below the above section :
Code:
            <Set Name="Character">
                <Setting Name="Executable">eqgame.exe</Setting>
                <Setting Name="Parameters">patchme /login:charsetname_server:</Setting>
                <Setting Name="Path">C:\Games\EverQuest</Setting>
                <Setting Name="Loader">-1</Setting>
            </Set>
The GUID will self populate the next time you open Innerspace.
For example, if your character set is named MainGroup, you're playing on Emerald Dream, and your character name is Notaddictedredguides, you would paste this:
Code:
            <Set Name="Notaddictedredguides">
                <Setting Name="Executable">eqgame.exe</Setting>
                <Setting Name="Parameters">patchme /login:maingroup_emeralddream:notaddictedredguides</Setting>
                <Setting Name="Path">C:\Games\EverQuest</Setting>
                <Setting Name="Loader">-1</Setting>
            </Set>
If your characters are already imported into ISBoxer you can open ISBoxerToolkitProfile.XML, Ctrl+F for <GameProfile> and replace EverQuest Default Profile with the appropriate character name for each entry. Character names seem to always be two rows above this line. It was fairly easy to complete and much less frustrating than interacting with the either the Innerspace console or the ISBoxer Toolkit to achieve the same end result.

Should you need assistance with any of the above please feel free to find me on Discord. I'm always happy to help empower others because we're all learning together. United we stand.
