AutoLogin is a plugin that automatically logs in your characters. It can also switch characters, servers and login new accounts via commandline.

Type /plugin autologin load in-game to load, and it will default to loaded for all future logins.


Syntax Description
/loginchar [ <server>:<character> | <profile>_<server>:<character> | <server>^<login>^<character>^<password> | <server>^<login>^<password> ] Will open a new EverQuest instance and login the specified character. Example: /loginchar vox:bobby
/relog [#s|#m] Will log character out, and then log back in after specified time. Default time is in seconds. Example: /relog 5m
/switchchar <name> Will log out your current character and log in the specified character on the same account/server.
/switchserver <server short name> <character name> Will log out your current character and log in the specified server/character on the same account.


Right click on your MacroQuest tray icon. Select Profiles->Create New.

You'll be asked to enter nine fields:

  1. Profile Set: (This creates "groups" of profiles, enter any custom name)
  2. EQ Path: (Path to eqgame.exe)
  3. Login: (EverQuest login)
  4. Password: (EverQuest password)
  5. Server: (Server short name)
  6. Character Name:
  7. Class: (Optional)
  8. Level: (Optional)
  9. Hotkey: (Assign a key or combination of keys to bring this character's window to the front)

Upon clicking "Save", your profile will be encrypted and saved in MQ2AutoLogin.ini

Emulator Users: Be sure to add "customer servers" first!


Here's an example MQ2AutoLogin.ini,

;The following settings are global. Settings changed for specific characters will override them.
;0 is off, 1 is beep, 2 is email via MQ2Gmail
;0 is off, 1 is on. Will attempt to boot an active player to log in.
;0 is off, 1 is on.
;seconds to wait at the character select screen. Default is 3
;How many attempts to connect after a failure
;Encrypts your login information in MQ2AutoLogin.ini. NOTE: Changing your PCs hardware may make this unreadable. Be sure to use the export/import feature if moving or upgrading your PC.
;Stores your login and pass in plaintext in MQ2AutoLogin.ini, but is compatible with ISBoxer/WinEQ.

If you're using UseMQ2Login=1 and have created profiles via the tray icon, there will be additional sections such as [Profiles] and profile names. These should be left alone, as their settings are best changed via the GUI.

Upon logging in, you'll see a handsome GUI to set per-character settings:


These settings will apply to the current character, and will override your global settings. (To modify global settings, you'll need to edit the INI directly.)

Alternate login methods

There are two alternate login methods: Sessions (compatible with the EverQuest launcher and "-patchme" login method) and Station Names (best for WinEQ and ISBoxer)

If you'd like to use sessions, set UseMQ2Login=0, and add sessions to the MQ2AutoLogin.ini in this format,




If you're using ISBoxer, set UseMQ2Login=0 AND UseStationNamesInsteadOfSessions=1, and add station names to the MQ2AutoLogin.ini in this format,




Additional settings from the global section, such as KickActiveCharacter=1 can be added to session or station name sections to affect only that character.

Server Shortnames

You can discover the shortname of your server by using the DataType:everquest, e.g. in-game type /echo ${EverQuest.Server}

Profiles GUI

Right click on the MacroQuest tray icon -> Profiles

  • Check marks

A checked character will be loaded when clicking "Profile->Load All". Right-clicking a character's name will toggle the checkmark on or off.

  • Loading individual accounts

Left click on a character name and if checked, it will login and load MacroQuest. Left-clicking a loaded character will unload MacroQuest for that character.

  • Encryption

If you make profiles via the tray icon GUI, they are encrypted in your MQ2AutoLogin.ini. Moving your file to another computer or changing computer hardware will invalidate these logins, so please use import/export for backup and moving purposes.

  • Import/Export

This helps export and import login profiles, which are otherwise hard to decrypt.

  • Launch Clean

Launch single sessions without logging in.

Additional commands

At the character select screen, pressing END will pause autologin, and HOME will unpause.

Custom Login Scripts

Batch files and shortcuts: You can use a batch file or a shortcut to login using an existing MQ2AutoLogin Profile.

Batch File

start "toon1" /D "C:\EverQuest" eqgame.exe patchme /login:profile_server:character1
start "toon2" /D "C:\EverQuest" eqgame.exe patchme /login:profile_server:character2
start "toon3" /D "C:\EverQuest" eqgame.exe patchme /login:profile_server:character3


Modify your target to look like the following...

C:\PathToEverQuest\eqgame.exe patchme /login:profile_server:character
