    MQ2AutoLogin

    MQ2AutoLogin is a core Macroquest2 plugin that automatically logs in your characters.

    Type "/plugin mq2autologin" in-game to load, it will stay loaded for all future logins.

    There are 3 different methods to use this plugin:

    1) Standalone (recommended)
    2) Normal launcher / patchme
    3) ISBoxer / WinEQ2





    1) Standalone
    Using MQ2 as a standalone launcher is secure, simple, and able to organize hundreds of characters through custom groups.


    All of my characters are organized and just one click away.

    Your EverQuest login information is encrypted and stored locally, unique to your computer. If you try to transfer the login file between PCs, or change your PC's hardware, your login information can't be read. Be sure to use the import/export feature beforehand in those cases.

    Setup

    To get started, run MacroQuest2 in-game and load mq2autologin by typing "/plugin mq2autologin". It will stay loaded every time you start MacroQuest2.

    Right-click the tray icon.



    Make sure MQ2Login is enabled. If not, click it to enable.



    Profiles -> Create New...



    Fill in the information and save.



    Important: "Server" must use a special shortname.

    That's it, now you're ready to run.

    To login a single account, go to
    Profiles -> <yourgroupname>
    and click the character name.

    To login multiple accounts, go to
    Profiles -> <yourgroupname>
    and click "load all". All characters with a checkmark will be logged in. To add or remove a checkmark, right-click -> check.

    To edit a character profile, right-click -> edit.

    Profiles are encrypted and saved in mq2autologin.ini. The information will be rendered unusable if you switch computers, or make hardware changes to your current computer. To transfer between PCs, use the export/import feature.

    Server Shortnames
    Code: 
    antonius
    bertox
    beta
    bristle
    cazic
    drinal
    erollisi
    fippy
    firiona
    lockjaw
    luclin
    povar
    ragefire
    rathe
    test
    trakanon
    tunare
    vox
    vulak
    xegony
    zek
    Adding New Servers
    In your mq2autologin.ini:
    Code: 
    [Servers]
    customname=Exact name
    For example, here's how to add Brekt:
    Profiles -> Open INI File
    Add the following to the bottom of the file:
    Code: 
    [Servers]
    brekt=Brekt (Free Trade)
    Here's an example server block for some emu servers:
    Code: 
    [Servers]
    thf=[] The Hidden Forest [ www.thehiddenforest.org ]
    stormhav=[] Storm Haven - High-Quality Custom Content
    alkabor=[] The Al'Kabor Project [www.takproject.net]
    Other settings are explained below.




    2) Normal launcher / patchme
    WARNING:
    The following method stores your account information in MQ2AutoLogin.ini in plaintext. NEVER SHARE OR POST THIS FILE!


    First, you'll need to set up the ini file (named: MQ2AutoLogin.ini) with your account information:
    Code: 
    [Settings]
    KickActiveCharacter=1
    InstantCamp=0
    UseMQ2Login=0
    
    [Session1]
    StationName=ChangeMe
    Password=ChangeMe
    Server=ChangeMe
    Character=ChangeMe
    
    [Session2]
    StationName=ChangeMe
    Password=ChangeMe
    Server=ChangeMe
    Character=ChangeMe
    Then load the game with either the normal launcher, or the patchme method, and your character will be logged in. The first window will open session1, the next window session2, and so on.




    3) ISBoxer / WinEQ2
    WARNING:
    The following method stores your account information in MQ2AutoLogin.ini in plaintext. NEVER SHARE OR POST THIS FILE!


    You can also use station names rather than sessions, this is handy for ISBoxer / WinEQ2 users.

    First, you'll need to set up the ini file (named: MQ2AutoLogin.ini) with your account information:
    Code: 
    [Settings]
    KickActiveCharacter=1
    UseStationNamesInsteadOfSessions=1
    UseMQ2Login=0
    
    [YourStationName]
    Password=ChangeMe
    Server=ChangeMe
    Character=ChangeMe
    Then load the game with whatever launcher you prefer.



    Other settings

    UseMQ2Login Defaults to 1, must be set to 0 if using the 2nd or 3rd login methods or your game will sit at the login screen.

    KickActiveCharacter defaults to 1 (on) if it's not in your ini file. If enabled, this clicks the "Yes" button when the window pops up asking if you want to kick the character that you already have logged into a world server, else it just sits there at the server-select screen.

    UseStationNamesInsteadOfSessions defaults to 0 (off) if it's not in your ini file. If enabled, this uses account information based on the specified station name, which works well if you're using WinEQ2 profiles.

    The sessions are for each account you want to load up. So if you have three accounts, you'll put in entries for Session1, Session2 and Session3, each with its own account information (station name, password, server name, character name).

    /switchserver when issued in game, logs you out and logs you back in on whatever server and character specified:
    /switchserver <server short name> <character name>

    /switchcharacter when issued in game, logs you out of one character and into another on the same server.
    /switchchar <name>

    Bypass
    Holding down the END key while starting EQ will bypass the auto-login routine.

    Cycle window
    ` cycles to the next window. Key can be changed in MacroQuest.ini

    ctrl+` cycles to the previous window. Key can be changed in MacroQuest.ini

    Batch files and hotkeys:
    If you'd like to make a batch file or hotkey to login, it's simple.
    This example assumes you HAVE profiles created with "Create New..." in mq2autologin.ini and MQ2 is already loaded.
    A batch file can launch your accounts by sending the server_charname to the eqgame client like this:
    Code: 
    patchme /login:drinal_eqmule
