MULTIBOXING COMMANDS

Echo

You enter text once and it echos on every toon’s command line.

Syntax

Echo ( interval )

Parameters

Interval is optional. See examples below.

Examples

In this first example, Mojo enters text on every toon’s command line at the same time.

Hotkey ( Ctrl E )
{
   Echo ()
}

In this second example, Mojo waits 1300 milliseconds between each toon on each PC.

Hotkey ( Ctrl E )
{
   Echo ( 1300 )
}

Here’s how to use Echo to make a silent version of PortTeam. This assumes that your driver has the teleporter targeted.

When the little box pops up, type “/whisper <destination>.”

Hotkey ( Ctrl P )
{
   description ( "Silent PortTeam" )
   
   // replace "driver" with
   // your driver's name
   
   slash ( "/assist driver" );
   
   // No wait needed here because
   // manual typing causes a delay
   
   Echo ( 1300 )
}

Remarks

Press this hotkey and a little window opens in the middle of DAOC. Type text, press return, and the text gets entered on every toon’s command line.

Use this, for example, to join battlegroups or target somebody.

I added interval because some people reported that they get error messages when lots of toons try to do certain things at the same time. If you write an interval (you don’t have to) Mojo will pause for that number of milliseconds between echoing the text to each toon on each PC.

DAOC must be the active (foreground) window. If it’s not, Mojo won’t display the little window and nothing will happen.

This command is identical to PortTeam except PortTeam prepends “/say ” to your text. You can port your team with Echo too but you have to go to the slight extra trouble of typing “/say ” manually.

To put this another way, PortTeam is a specialized version of Echo.
