Disclaimer: All Macros require you to first click the Enter Button to change focus to the command bar, then manually type, then enter again.

Macros make execution of server commands much easier. They do not allow you to chain commands, but you may create alias commands or argument substitutions.

For example, it would be tiresome to continuously execute a "throw dagger at orc" command. Creating a macro (tda = "throw dagger at") allows input of "tda orc" to execute the full command.

Macros may substitute parameters specified as part of the command input. For example:

(chs = "[1], critique hand skill"). You may even specify multiple parameters:

(cs = "[1], critique [2] skill")

Macros can even allow for default behavior when a parameter is not specified. For example:

(cs = "[1], critique [2:magic] skill") When the input is "cs lars", the command is executed as "lars, critique magic skill." The command can still be executed by specifying all the parameters ("cs lars hand").

There may be complex scenarios where default parameters exist at the start of a macro.

(ta = "throw [1:dagger] at [2]") In this scenario, it's important to provide the right number of parameters. Using the input "ta orc" would transform into "throw orc at ". The proper way to execute the command is by adding an extra space into the input, "ta  orc". The extra space adds an empty parameter, prior to "orc". The command is properly transformed as "throw dagger at orc"

In cases where extra parameters are provided in the input, they will be appended to the end.

Additional Examples:

ta = "throw [1] at"

Usage: ta dagger orc throw dagger at orc

buy = "[1], buy [2:all]"

Usage: buy rolf => rolf, buy all

Usage: buy rolf gem => rolf, buy gem

dmp = "dump [1:all] on [2:counter]"

Usage: dmp bottles floor => dump bottles on floor

Usage: dmp => dump all on counter

You cannot edit macro files with the game loaded as the file will not save. The "Global" file will be for every character or you can use the character-specific files that appear in your folder after a new character is created. Simply copy the macros below and paste them into the destination file underneath the "=====" at the bottom of the text file.
