ISBoxer 42:MMO - Standard Configuration
This content (or portions thereof) describes ISBoxer 42! ISBoxer 42 is newly released, and we are working on updating parts of the documentation for the new version.
The MMO - Standard Configuration style is the gold standard for most major MMORPGs, providing the ability to have your entire team Assist or Follow the Character you are playing, and sharing buttons 1 through = (standard MMORPG action buttons) between them. The MMO - Standard Configuration style is available in the Quick Setup Wizard.
MMO - Standard Configuration is generally configured during the Quick Setup Wizard by specifying Hotkeys (buttons you want to press to activate multiboxing features, e.g. to make your team Assist or Follow you) and Game Key Bindings (buttons configured within the game, that do things in the game).
This section configures general-use Hotkeys you will press to activate features of ISBoxer, such as a toggle for Broadcasting Mode, and a toggle for toggling most Hotkeys. Set the Hotkeys as you prefer; they can all be adjusted later. Most Hotkeys in this section will affect your entire Profile.
Basic Broadcasting of 1 through =
This section configures the optional broadcasting of 1 through =, the standard "Action Bar" Hotkeys for MMOs. You can easily add Alt, Shift and Ctrl as well via check boxes.
Auto-Assist is available as an option on these keys. Depending on the game you are playing and your chosen Follow/Assist Mode from the MMO Party Mechanics section below, Auto-Assist may or may not work -- you may just need to press the Assist Me Hotkey manually.
Auto-Interact with Target is also available as an option on these keys. This also depends on the game you are playing -- most games do not have an equivalent feature.
An optional Action Bar Overlay is also available, which will enable a visual indicator when broadcasting the buttons, as well as the ability to click with the mouse to broadcast them.
MMO Party Mechanics
|None||No action will be taken if the Hotkey is pressed|
|Directly Follow/Assist designated Main Character||This option allows for easy, fool-proof configuration. Create a Hotkey in the game to /follow your designated main character, and another Hotkey to /assist him, then give those to ISBoxer under "Follow Main Character" and "Assist Main Character"|
|Target current Slot, then Follow/Assist Target||This option allows following/assisting all slots, using in-game Party Targeting Hotkeys. This can be impractical/confusing in some games with wonky party lists (e.g. Star Wars The Old Republic), and breaks when others are in your party (or members are missing) -- in which case it is also possible to switch to another Follow/Assist method on the fly.|
|Target Party Leader, then Follow/Assist Target||This option allows for easy configuration if a designated Hotkey in the game can target the Party Leader (or your designated main character), and another can Follow and another can Assist. Give those to ISBoxer under "Target Party Leader", "Follow Target" and "Assist Target"|
|Directly Follow/Assist current Slot (per-Slot Follow/Assist Key Bindings)||This option allows following/assisting all slots, using a manually-configured in-game Macro for each Character. This can be tedious to configure if you have a lot of Characters. Give ISBoxer the entire list of custom Follow and Assist Hotkeys.|
|Directly Follow/Assist current Slot (Slot ID Modifiers)||This option allows following/assisting all slots, using in-game Macros in a way that all Characters can follow with one key (plus some Modifiers) and assist with another key (plus some Modifiers). This is similar to the WoW option.|
|Directly Follow/Assist current Slot (auto-generated WoW Macros)||This Mode is automatically selected by default for World of Warcraft. It will use generated Macros in the ISBoxer Addon to handle follow and assist for all Characters.|
