Just Learning How to Use Mids

Hello, all. I'm just trying to learn how to transfer my build from here to Mids.

Where do I access the info on my character to do that?

I assume I use the "choose files" link, below, but where to, then?

Thanks for your patience!

There's no way to transfer character data from CoH to Mids directly.  You'll have to create your own builds manually, with the old "stare and compare" method, where you have CoH open in windowed mode, and Mids open in a separate window.  Then you just pick the same AT, power sets, slots, and enhancements in Mids that you have selected in game.


The only way to share Mids data is to either (a) save and share the MXD files that you create, or (b) copy and paste to/from forum posts or "data chunks".  For example, I've attached the MXD file for one of my Blaster builds to this post in my next post, below.  But I can also export the Mids data to this post using the Import/Export menu of Mids, which I've pasted into the spoiler section which can be found in my next post, below.


Here are some screenshots that show how to do a "Short Forum Export".








To import from a forum post, the easiest thing to do is to "Click this DataLink to open the build!", which will prompt you to save the MXD file to your computer somewhere (with a name you specify), which you can then open in Mids. 


If a DataLink wasn't provided, but a "DataChunk" (a bunch of hexadecimal code) was, you can simply highlight and copy (Ctrl-C) the entire DataChunk, and then use the "Import from Forum Post" option to import it into Mids.

I messed up the spoiler section in my previous post, so here's an example of a "Short Forum Export" that includes both the DataLink and the DataChunk.

What I often do, when posting a build that I want contained in the spoiler thing (because who wants long-ass posts):

  1. Start a new Thread or Reply to a post;
  2. Type in what I want to say;
  3. Copy/Paste from Mids to the forum;
  4. Submit the post;
  5. Edit the newly-posted message;
  6. Highlight the build spam wall-of-text and apply Spoiler;
  7. Save the edit.

Cumbersome, yes, but it's the only way I've gotten it to work as I intended it to.
