My personal hints
« on: 26-12-16, 05:07:39 »
Maybe everything i tell here is totally known, but i hope some can use it.


1. Copy/Paste in game
You can go to Options->Keymap->Chat
There you can rebind: ChatEditCopy and ChatEditPaste (I recommend ctrl+c and ctrl+v like in Windows)
It will work outside the game, so you can copy stuff from outside the game and paste it in game. Usefull for add waypoints.


2. the /note command:

Its a simple TXT file thats will created in profile folder if you use it in Game.
You can edit this file and it will save progress when closing it.
So its very usefull for example writing in commands, to do list, shoping list, color codes etc


3. Color you stuff

Everything you can give a name, you can colorize with web code like this:


just add \# and the color code you like

Now i recomend use your /note command to use it like this:



Here is the color code you can copy in this file (you can use the ctrl+v like i describe above):

\#000000\000000 \#000033\000033 \#000066\000066 \#000099\000099 \#0000CC\0000CC \#0000FF\0000FF

It's perfectly fine :)

As for your guide, this is good information! When I stumbled across /note for the first time in game I exclaimed and thought to myself, "Wow! A personal place to take notes in game!"

Good guide! :)

/browser works. You can even type /browser somewebsite.com to open a particular site.

You can create aliases, which are a lot like macros in a sense...

For example
Code: [Select]
/alias web /browser
then if you type in-game
Code: [Select]
/web google.com
it will use the /browser command and pass google.com.

Useful for things like chatchannels.. IE
Code: [Select]
/alias ch1 /myjoinedchannelwithastupidlongnamewould allow
Code: [Select]
/ch1 Hi guys!
You can also save a set of aliases and load a set of aliases with the following examples:
Code: [Select]
/load aliases.txt
Code: [Select]
/save aliases2.txt
There's also a bunch of target-based text commands...

Code: [Select]
%TU – your full name (first and last)
%TT – your current look at target target's full name
%NU – your first name
%NT – your target's short version name (first only)
%KT – your target's profession
%SU – personal subjective pronoun: he/she/it for the speaker
%ST – he/she/it for the target
%OU – personal objective pronoun: him/her/it for the speaker
%OT – him/her/it for your target
%PU – possessive: his/her/its for the speaker
%PT – his/her/its for your target
%RU – your species
%RT – your target's species


For example, targeting an NPC named Darth Vader:
Code: [Select]
/say Hello %NU
would put in chat
Code: [Select]
Hello Darth

i forgot about aliases...

can you call an alias from a macro?

such as adding:    /say Hello %NU      inside a macro script or do they not fire if originating from a macro?
