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.

Re: Multiple PCs "Party Invites"

Hi guys, I'll try to provide as much info as possible to troubleshoot my issue! I'm basically trying to do the same thing with multi-pc party invite and play WoW. I use the WoW game helper to invite my team. What I am trying to accomplish is setting up three 5Man Team party invites on two PCs and possibly set up a raid team invite across all 15 toons to help with sharding/phasing.

This is the command I'm trying to get working for team 1 party invite.

!if ("slot 1" and character is not "slot 1") /invite {SET1SLOT1}
!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}



The first three commands are from the main pc and have no invite issues. However, the last two are from the second pc. Now this line from the second pc does not work

!if ("slot 1" and character is not "slot 1") /invite {SET2SLOT1}

and I can ensure you it is the correct characterset and slot knowing from the preview on the WoW macro sets.

I tried deleting my character sets made a new one to see if any ftl's got messed up exporting to innerspace a bunch of times. All macros work except for

!if ("slot 1" and character is not "slot 1") /invite {SET2SLOT1}

which is the first slot from the second pc.
The command for
!if ("slot 2" and character is not "slot 2") /invite {SET2SLOT2} works so I don't really know what's wrong with the first one. I checked out http://isboxer.com/wiki/WoW:Macro
But I'm not really sure what I need to do

I have more issues with team 2 & 3 not working at all but that's even more to go over so I'll save my self from bashing my head against the wall to get this to work! Anyway, all help if any is greatly appreciated.

Re: Multiple PCs "Party Invites"

The resulting macro is not that tricky. The conditional is all evaluated at export to InnerSpace, and essentially is working out what to write to the ISBoxer Addon (which you can look at the character specific files for in the Addon folder to figure out why it doesn't work).

You will probably need to drop that conditional, because it is most likely excluding that SET2SLOT1 invite from the addon for the first toon. It is something on the list to be looked at to get those conditionals to function a little better.

Re: Multiple PCs "Party Invites"

Thank you for replying. When you mention Isboxer addon are you referring to the folder WoW addons? Or is it isboxer own folder? Also if I drop the conditonals would these macros work?

/invite {SET1SLOT1}
/invite {SET1SLOT4}
/invite {SET1SLOT5}
/invite {SET2SLOT1}
/invite {SET2SLOT2}
Next
