Multiple PCs "Party Invites"

Hey folks, quick question regarding Multiple PC teams. I have everything up and running and want to invite my entire 5 man team to a party. I have a 3 man team set-up on one PC and a 2 man team set up on the other PC. I have them linked together with the "Also Launch" in the main team character set. However, when I go to invite them all, only the 3 man team from the 1st PC gets the invites. any suggestions?

Re: Multiple PCs "Party Invites"

When you run two teams, you have two Slot 1 and two Slot 2 etc. so you need to adjust any actions for that.

If you are playing WoW, you can adjust the invite macro in the Game Helpers to use the additional macro variables http://isboxer.com/wiki/WoW:Macro#List_of_Variables

if it is not WoW, then it gets a little bit trickier, but for two PC's you can use the Advanced Target mechanics to not use the local pc group.

I am playing WoW.
1st PC is using the "SLOT"s properly and this is how it was set up:
!if ("slot 1" and character is not "slot 1") /invite {SLOT1}
!if ("slot 2" and character is not "slot 2") /invite {SLOT2}
!if ("slot 3" and character is not "slot 3") /invite {SLOT3}
!if ("slot 4" and character is not "slot 4") /invite {SLOT4}
!if ("slot 5" and character is not "slot 5") /invite {SLOT5}


I tried adjusting the macros in "Game Helpers" in the following ways (just testing for the 4th spot) to no avail :(
!if ("slot 4" and character is not "slot 4") /invite {FTL nomod:lctrl, nomod:lshift, mod:lalt, nomod:rctrl, nomod:rshift, nomod:ralt}

!if ("slot 4" and character is not "slot 4") /invite {FTLnomod:lctrl, nomod:lshift, mod:lalt, nomod:rctrl, nomod:rshift, nomod:ralt}

!also /invite {FTL nomod:lctrl, nomod:lshift, mod:lalt, nomod:rctrl, nomod:rshift, nomod:ralt}

!also /invite {FTLnomod:lctrl, nomod:lshift, mod:lalt, nomod:rctrl, nomod:rshift, nomod:ralt}

/invite {FTL nomod:lctrl, nomod:lshift, mod:lalt, nomod:rctrl, nomod:rshift, nomod:ralt}

/invite {FTLnomod:lctrl, nomod:lshift, mod:lalt, nomod:rctrl, nomod:rshift, nomod:ralt}


I just don't know what I'm doing wrong.
Slot 1 on the main PC uses the lshift FTL modifier
Slot 2 on the main PC uses the rshift FTL modifier
Slot 3 on the main PC uses the lctrl FTL modifier
Slot 1 on the second PC uses the lalt FTL modifier
Slot 2 on the second PC uses the lctrl and lshift FTL modifier

Re: Multiple PCs "Party Invites"

You'll need to use the SET#SLOT# variables.

Something like:

Code:
!if ("slot 1" and character is not {SET1SLOT1}) /invite {SET1SLOT1}
!if ("slot 2" and character is not {SET1SLOT2}) /invite {SET1SLOT2}
!if ("slot 3" and character is not {SET1SLOT3}) /invite {SET1SLOT3}
!if ("slot 4" and character is not {SET1SLOT4}) /invite {SET1SLOT4}
!if ("slot 5" and character is not {SET1SLOT5}) /invite {SET1SLOT5}
!if ("slot 1" and character is not {SET2SLOT1}) /invite {SET2SLOT1}
!if ("slot 2" and character is not {SET2SLOT2}) /invite {SET2SLOT2}
!if ("slot 3" and character is not {SET2SLOT3}) /invite {SET2SLOT3}
!if ("slot 4" and character is not {SET2SLOT4}) /invite {SET2SLOT4}
!if ("slot 5" and character is not {SET2SLOT5}) /invite {SET2SLOT5}

Re: Multiple PCs "Party Invites"

I used that and it does not get past the export to InnerSpace

WoW Addon generation failed...

There's a problem "Unrecognised operator at Betterarmy (first set first slot)" in the following WoW Macro commands '/invite team' in WoW Macro Set 'Quick Setup 42':
!if ("slot 1" and character is not {SET1SLOT1}) /invite {SET1SLOT1}
!if ("slot 2" and character is not {SET1SLOT2}) /invite {SET1SLOT2}
!if ("slot 3" and character is not {SET1SLOT3}) /invite {SET1SLOT3}
!if ("slot 4" and character is not {SET1SLOT4}) /invite {SET1SLOT4}
!if ("slot 5" and character is not {SET1SLOT5}) /invite {SET1SLOT5}
!if ("slot 1" and character is not {SET2SLOT1}) /invite {SET2SLOT1}
!if ("slot 2" and character is not {SET2SLOT2}) /invite {SET2SLOT2}
!if ("slot 3" and character is not {SET2SLOT3}) /invite {SET2SLOT3}
!if ("slot 4" and character is not {SET2SLOT4}) /invite {SET2SLOT4}
!if ("slot 5" and character is not {SET2SLOT5}) /invite {SET2SLOT5}


I only have 2 Character sets (both involved with this) I did have a 3rd (as set 1) but I deleted it because i saw that it was trying to use that as "set1" but i understand now that the sets refer to the character sets. so there was no need to delete it. I could have just changed it to set2 and set3, but it still does not work.

Re: Multiple PCs "Party Invites"

Its been a while since I played with this, so I forgot about the way conditionals work.

This will work, although you might get some chaff from the invite. The conditionals don't really have decent handling for multiple character sets.

Code:
!if ("slot 1" and character is not "slot 1") /invite {SET1SLOT1}
!if ("slot 2" and character is not "slot 2") /invite {SET1SLOT2}
!if ("slot 3" and character is not "slot 3") /invite {SET1SLOT3}
!if ("slot 4" and character is not "slot 4") /invite {SET1SLOT4}
!if ("slot 5" and character is not "slot 5") /invite {SET1SLOT5}
!if ("slot 1" and character is not "slot 1") /invite {SET2SLOT1}
!if ("slot 2" and character is not "slot 2") /invite {SET2SLOT2}
!if ("slot 3" and character is not "slot 3") /invite {SET2SLOT3}
!if ("slot 4" and character is not "slot 4") /invite {SET2SLOT4}
!if ("slot 5" and character is not "slot 5") /invite {SET2SLOT5}


As a general rule, you would normally invite from a single toon fairly consistently, so it may be easier to have a different macro set that has a specific invite depending on the team/size, and just have the appropriate /invite lines in it, then you don't need to worry about the conditionals.
