    Noob to Windower macros

    Was wondering if someone would be able to help me get these working properly. Either in this thread or in PMs. I have the basics down, I can get them to input and work in game, but some JAs and Equip lines don't get used.

    I got no BG authority but I'd assume the best place to ask this type of question is.... on the windower forum.

    input /equip body "Homam Corazza";
    input /equip waist "Swift Belt";


    It all works up to Jump, but won't change gear back to TP gear. However, if I hit the macro a 2nd time, it'll try to Jump, timer, then change the gear.

    input /equip Legs "Conte cosciales";
    input /equip body "Barone Corazza";
    input /equip waist "Warwolf Belt";
    pause 1;
    input /ja "Jump" <t>;
    pause 2;
    input /equip legs "Drachen Brais +1";
    input /equip body "Homam Corazza";
    input /equip waist "Swift Belt";

    That should work.

    Wait will not work when entered as 'input /wait 1'. Merely put 'wait 1;' or whatever time for your wait line and the macro will move along fine.

    Mine were acting strangely too.

    Correct.

    You must look at it from a code point of view.

    input /equip waist "Warwolf Belt";
    input /wait 1;

    Line one will type out /equip waist "Warwolf Belt" which will equip the belt. Line 2 will type out /wait 1, wtf is a /wait 1? the FFXI console doesnt understand /wait, just the macros do.

    input /equip waist "Warwolf Belt";
    wait 1

    Is the correct way.

    Did they ever fix these? For a while they would spam shit into the say window like there's no tomorrow.

    Still no dice on:

    input /ja "Jump" <t>;
    input wait 2

    or

    input /ja "Jump" <t>;
    wait 2

    or

    input /ja "Jump" <t>;
    /wait 2

    or

    Any combination of those with a ; after wait 2

    That's rather strange. My macro for Boost works fine.

    [Gear
    Swaps
    Here]
    input /ja "Boost" <me>;
    wait 1;
    input /equip "Ochiudo's Kotes";
    input /echo WS Gear equipped

    Before I changed the "input /wait" thing it would crap out right after Boost (for reasons nicely explained above).

    Check for erroneus spaces at the end of any macro lines.

    Youre forgetting the ; after the wait line.

    This:

    input /ja "Jump" <t>;
    wait 2;

    should work. Where does the macro stop exactly? Before or after the Jump?

  17. #17

    It hits jump. But won't change gear back after jump, however I notice the wait before jump doesn't work as it does it instantly.

    Put a punch of fake echos to console in there (or /says and do it in your moghouse)

    Really helps for debugging them.

    So is this the exact macro you're trying?

    If so there is no ; after the <t> on your /ja line, could be it, doublecheck please. Also, you don't need a leading wait for the Jump, not with windower macros.

    Very good tip. Add input /echo Before first wait, input /echo After first wait, etc. and see where it craps out.
