Hi! If you are here, than you want to learn how to create a macro, but first, lets make sure you know what a macro is:

A macro is something that attaches a verb to a key of your choice, so that when you press that key outside of a chat, the verb on that key will be activated.

Now, step 1 is to go to the top-left part of your TWC screen and click file


Then click Options and Messages


After that, click on Client


Then click onto Macros


Heres where the real work begins; You are going to click 'New Macro'


and in the box that has 'Key' on the left, enter in the key for whatever verb you want to macro. Examplea are: a, f, w, or m. The square boxes labled ALT, CTRL, and SHIFT are for more advanced users. when you have the boxes selected, in order to use the macro, you /must/ be holding down the selected keys. So if you select ALT, you have to hold down your ALT key while pressing your macro key for it to work, and if you select more than 1 box, both of thosw keys must be held down to use your macro.


In this example, i am macroing inflamari to work when i press 'd' on my keyboard


you can even take things a step further and add a players name to the end of a macro, like if you wanted to macro Valorus to work on...John Steel, you would replace my Inflamari with 'Valorus John-Steel'. if someone has 2 parts to their name, you cannot use a space, the space must be replaced with '-' to work.

Ok, some verbs you cant macro to do everything you want to, such as the Shop verb that only appears near an NPC; you cannot make a macro to buy a particular item, tough you can put Shop into the command line and do it like that.

You cant add someones name to every verb; Telendevour is a verb that will not allow you to add someones name. If you try, the macro will fail and you'll have to fix it.

With all of these macros, you must be careful, because if you are not, you might end up spamming people in ooc or say, and that will get you in trouble, accident or not.

to make a say or ooc macro, simply put     Say "[text here]"        OOC "[text here]"
and when you hit the key, the message will come up in whichever chat is selected.

Nice guide Kozu :) and nice video, Daz. But a tip for the video: Go a little slower, it was pretty fast and they'd have to pause a lot.
