Add an additional window that displays all output from MacroQuest. In addition, anything you type into this window will avoid your character log, and is invisible to /petitions and /reports as well.


Syntax Description
/mqchat [reset | autoscroll {on|off} | NoCharSelect {on|off} | SaveByChar {on|off}] Resets window and INI settings, as well as configures INI settings.
/mqclear Clears all text from the MQ window
/mqfont <#> Sets the font size in the MQ window, from 1 to 10. Default is 4.
/mqmin Minimizes the MQ window
/setchattitle <custom string> Sets the title of the window. By default it's "MQ"
/style [!]0xN Set the style bit corresponding to 0xN or unset it if ! is supplied. See EverQuest documentation for further details about WindowStyle.


MQ2ChatWnd.ini stores window position, fade, etc. separately for each character by default. These are best configured in-game like you would any other window.

There are three user-configurable options,

;Automatically scrolls to the bottom of the chat window every time a new text line is displayed.
;Don't display the window on character select screen
;Each character uses its own window position and settings. Off will use global settings under [Default]

Key bind

By default, the chat window has a key bind of "." - this is handy! Rather than selecting the window with your mouse, you can hit the period key "." and your cursor will switch to the MQ window, so you can type a command quickly. This can be modified in MacroQuest.ini under [Key Binds] via the setting MQ2CHAT_Nrm=
