    *edit* Nevermind, I've decided to go with the batch file idea.

    Incidentally, it works quite well. You just need to quit the client entirely to reload, but otherwise it's fine. I have .bat files that save, load, or backup my settings files. I'm sure there are more elegant ways to do this but this is pretty simple (as am I, so it suits me).

    Good workaround. But I wish they would add some additional support for multiple accounts and/or different configs for characters in the account.

    2d let you have one global macro file with the option to have individual custom macro files for specific chars. Seems like the EC could also allow you to put a different user settings file in character specific sub dirs. But for the most part, I am ok with the desktop settings be the same.

    One other feature I would really like to see is to have a global user data file where common stuff - open doors/pet commands/commonly used spells etc etc could reside that would merge with char specific data files where char specific hotkeys/macros, eg equip macros could be maintained.

    That's a good suggestion. :thumbup1:

    A checkbox for "Use Global Settings" and another for "Share Global Macros". The global options would override any layout, skin, settings, bindings, etc.
  4. Agreed.... a very good idea! :thumbup1:
