Someone should write a macro to move it to the right. ūüėČ

 

I actually have a very similar workaround. My customWindow is just one button called "Setup", which I programmed to create all the macro buttons I want. At toon creation, I create a vertical tray on the right side and drop all my desired macro buttons on to there, then use the macro buttons from then on.

Inside custom.window, add this text:

 

Code: [select]

_____________________________

Window Macros 0 0 200 100

Open 1

End

_____________________________

What are these parameters?  I understand that 0 0 means top left corner, but I don't want my custom window in the top left corner.  When I drag the window to a new location, it will stay there... kind of.  Meaning when I enter a new zone or mission instance, it may move around some.  Also, the numbers inside the file will change after moving the window around, but I cannot decipher the value changes.

So i tired that and it hasn't worked. I make the "data" and "customwindows" folders.  In game I did "/customewindow Macros" and all i got was a small box that said Macros, and nothing appeared in the folder.

You have an "s" on the end of the folder you created, so you have to either remove the "s" or add it to the name of your macro. That is my guess.

If I have multiple custom windows defined, is there a way to toggle one or more of them off?  Like, if I define one for each of my alts, can I make all but one disappear on a given character?

Here's the Way I have mine working, and It's still Epic.. Everything is under the DATA folder.. You might have to add the Text Folder to add the list.. Here's the Examples.

custom.window

Within the Custom.window custom.png.4852b29059bce9fa1dce51fe2d708f12.png

Window "Ashlocke's Menu" 0.6789 0.7287 114 47
    Button "Handy Menu" "Popmenu AHM"
    Open 1
End

 

 

Also, You may have to create a folder Text - English - Menus - Then the .mnu within the menu folder

A Handy menu.mnu

Is there a command you can type in that when you are in a certain chat tab it will say your name and level? Such as our SG has its own chat room, when I type in there I want it to read "Global name": (current hero being played, level).

 

I remember there used to be a macro or something you could put in that it would automatically do that everytime you tried to chat when the game was live but can't remember the coding for it.

/bind F10 "beginchat /send "Global" [as $Name- $ArchEtype, $level]"

From way back when.¬†- you can do a variety of things from there, also you can change the Global to whatever chat location you want ūüôā

/bind [key] "beginchat <color red><bgcolor black><border blue>

or 

/bind ENTER "show chat$$afk Speaking, excuse me...$$startchat [$level $name $archetype]"

Also this is a great resource to find all sorts of amazing macros and bind trickery Macro Bind Hub - shenanigunnerDOTcom

I use different bind keys for the different chat channels as well. 

/bind BACKSPACE "autoreply"
**differentiates beween the last tell you received and the last one you sent

/bind CTRL+BACKSPACE "tell_last"
**starts a reply to the last tell you were sent

/bind ALT+BACKSPACE "t $target, "
**opens a quick tell to any player you have targeted, like the one who just gave you a passing buff
or heal.

Kind of Rusty at crafting, I have them all saved in a keybind file I load ūüôā Hopefully this helps! Good hunting

The variable codes for displaying your name and level (respectively) in chat are:

$name
$level

 

choake's post above has some usage examples. The variables page on the HCWiki has a list of all the available chat variables.

I know those will post it in the chat but Im looking for a permanent way so that everytime I chat it will always post the current name and level.

I know there is a way to bind it to a button but I could have sworn there was a comman line that could be put in back when it was live that it automatically did that for you everytime you chatted.

With the newer Homecoming Launcher and the change to the file structure underneath it as a result, and with the actual game directory being DRIVE:\Homecoming\bin\win64\live\cityofheroes.exe, where should the \data\customwindows folder go? If I put it under \win64\live then I get launcher errors.
