    Run
    Hide

    All kidding aside, you did ask a serious question. I use to use an xcel template that had columns as wide as the key spacing and 3 rows long. Each field had the name of the spell. So the F2 key would have, for instance, recall, gate travel and teleport. gate travel would be shift -F2, teleport would be control - F2, etc.

    Now I play much more simply:
    rising colussus
    cleansing winds
    invis
    recall
    Hurl Big Rock (Bombard)
    Fire Field
    Poison Field
    Nether Cyclone
    Sorta old school huh?

    If you can make sense of that! Copied from the macro file. It would take ages to type it all out. This does not include my UOA Macros.

    Mine are like Rumpies, way too many macro's. The macro file format is simple, key, ctrl boolean, alt boolean, shift boolean (Key, CAS). The big catch is the "spaces" used in the macro definition, rather than the key definition, in the file are are null characters not spaces (0x00 not 0x20). Generally if you edit the file with notepad and add spaces the UO engine will catch the majority of the changes.The UO Engine would default by not adding spaces or null keys if you mess it up, which make it easy to find your mistakes. However backup's are your friend.

    My macro file is quite the OCD organized file as it is sorted by the following groups:
    Function keys are pretty much junk/rarely used.
    1,2,3,4,5 = Walls and misc Dexer types of things.
    Q,W,E,R,T = buffs, targets (self and last), summons.
    A,S,D,F,G = Primarily damage, debuffs, attacks.
    Z,X,C,V,B = Cures, heals, target cycling, pet commands etc,
    Space Bar = mixed with open door and quick set last spell last skill.
    Defaults for open bags, tiller commands, etc. are at the end (may have changed some of the tiller commands around).

    UOAssist
    Use scissors, daggers, dress, arm dismount, etc. grouped in the 1,2,3,4,5 section
    An additional last target, to use target queue in the Q,W,E,R,T section.
    Buffs, Bandages pots, Bolas, pop trap box are in the Z,X,C,V,B section
    Mouse wheel is used to clear target queue and target self.

    Here is a copy of my macros2d.txt file its only around 90 macros.

    Side note on macros, has anyone else had troubles with in game macros not working?

    My tamer has to reset the "all stop all follow me" "all kill" everytime i log in. My pvm dexxer has to reset the bandage self macro everytime as well. They don't delete themselves but they also don't work until i redo them. Has me baffled.

    Did you you manually edit the file? Try deleting the entry in the file, then adding them in with the client. Then log out and log back in.

    Nah I don't look like my avatar I use here. Though I do live the life of a redneck that just happens to be a gamer and computer geek. As for my macro set up,my melee paladin/mystic/samurai uses more hot keys than my pure caster. Along with some alt's and ctrl's I also use F1 through F6.

    Yes sir but i kept trying to get them to save on the keypad since ive had those same macro keys on other similar characters for years. They will not save.

    I did try a little while ago to manually delete and assign to another key. Those did save.

    I'm thinking it has something to do with client crashes after a freshly made macro.

    I try and find some system that is easy to remember then work with that. Like with pets I have keys for specific pets and all the macros for that pet are combinations with shift, ctrl and alt. For spells I use function and number keys mostly, I try and order things in order of how I use them if possible. Keep the most important stuff easy, like my heal/target self macro and invis self macros for example. And even if characters have different skills, I use the same keys for the same basic purpose - healing macros for example. I also sometimes use letter keys, like ctrl-p used to be paralyze. I found that easier with skills like necro and chiv etc as they have fewer spells than magery. But you can at least tie your most used spells to keys that way.

    For not saving macros - I tend to change macros, save them then log out of the client. Then close it and reload it. Usually that ensures the macro changes "stick" and saves me re-setting them. If I crash or just close the client without logging out first, sometimes I lose macros, especially in the EC.

    To my knowledge the only way to achieve an automatic door open w/o a macro is an illegal 3rd party program..silly really it isn't game breaking to have that in The clients UI..but who knows

    In the CC, it's labelled as "OpenDoor" in the macro tabs, not illegal by any means. :D

    it's the first macro I set when creating any new characters... "Space bar" = Open door, that is all.

    it won't open the door Automatically.. but you won't have to click the door.

    Is Num Lock on or off? For the numpad keys to work in UO Num Lock needs to be off. If you check the file and you see some references to Num # 0 0 0 then you did it correctly.

    As others have mentioned after getting your configurations done log out of the client, including closing the client to be safe. Then log back in. I do this when I change my desktop layouts too.

    I fixed the keypad issue. It was showing multiple versions in the file. I deleted them all and it worked.

    The bandage self macro on my dexxer still won't save with in game macro. I can make it all day long on multiple Fkeys, number keys even letters but it doesn't even show in the file. I realize i can use UOA but honestly, i shouldn't HAVE to.
