XMacros
Version: 1.3
by: Xenyr [More]
XMacros - eXtra Macros from Xenyr of Steampike.

If you are like me then 25 macros weren't enough and even the 50 macros you get now aren't enough. XMacros is an addon to provide an unlimited number of macros and an unlimited number of bars to fire these macros. XMacros provides its own button bars that can be vertical, horizonal or even grouped as a rectangle. Each button on a bar can have a macro for every mouse button. This allows you to limit the number of buttons on screen by using one button for many actions. For example I have a button setup where each mouse button will make my character use a different mount. 5 mounts on a single button.

XMacros now supports ability timers on its buttons. If you set an ability name on a button then the addon will automatically show the remaining cooldown on that ability. See the images for an example.

XMacros buttons can only be pressed by a mouse click. This is a limitation of the Rift addon api. You cannot use XMacros for you main key bound macros and also you cannot use mouseover macros, as they require a key press to cast. All you other macro buttons (or just normal buttons) can use XMacros.

Commands:

xm [ current [ setnames ] | off | bars | macros ]

/xm off - turn off xmacros (in case it is causing problems)
/xm macros - open the macro editor
/xm bars - open the button bar editor
/xm current [ setname1,setname2,... ] - make button bar sets setname1,setname2 visible

Getting started:

First lets create a couple of macros. Macros are shared across all characters on the shard. Each macro belongs to a category and you can create as many categories as you need. This will allow you group similar macros and make them easier to find. So lets create a few macros. Start by typing "/xm macros" in the Rift chat box. This will bring up the macro editor. The macro category will be set to Default, which is fine for this example. Enter the name "Mount" in the Name field and then enter "use ash strider" in the text box below the name (change ash strider to a valid mount for your character) and press "Save". Now enter "Mount2" in the Name field and then enter "use crocnard" in the text box below the name (change crocnard to a valid mount for your character, but different from the one used in the Mount macro). Now press the "OK" button.

OK now we need to create a button bar to use these macros. So type "/xm bars" in the Rift chat box to open the bar editor. Enter "Set1" in the set textfield and press the "Add Set" button (it wont seem to do anything but the set has been added). Now press the "Add Bar" button. This brings up the Add Bar window. Set the rows to be 2, the columns to be 2 and the button size to be 52 (which seems to be the default button size in Rift) and press "OK". This will show an empty bar at the top left of the screen. You can drag it to the desired location by using the right mouse button. Now left click on the top button in the bar. This will open the button editor. Click the "Browse Icons" button and select an icon for your new Mount button. Press the "Choose" button beside the Left Macro text and select the Mount macro. Press the "Choose" button beside the Right Macro text and select the Mount2 macro. Press "OK". Now left click the second button on the bar. Type bull rush in the Ability Name text field and press the "Find Icon" button. This will set the icon to the warrior Bull Rush ability icon. Now press the "Choose" button beside the Left Macro text and select the Mount2 macro. Press "OK" on the button editor. Press "OK" on the Set Editor.

Now your bar will be usable. Left click on the top button and you will get one mount (ash strider in my case). Left click on the second button and you will get another mount (crocnard for me). Finally right click on the first button and you will get the same mount as the second button. This is a contrived example, but its just to show how you can have many actions on a single button.

Lots more to come for this addon. Tooltips soon and I am also thinking of addon ability cooldown tracking.

Download version 1.1.5 which allows you to change the ability name associated with a button.

Once you have installed the new version edit the Puncture button and change the Ability Name field at the top to be Piqre.

Please let me know if it works.

Hi ! First, sorry for my english i'm a french player...

This is a really nice addon but there is a bug about cooldowns when you are a french player like me. The cooldown appear normally only if the icon that you choose for a button have the same name that the skill in left clic button, so if the english name is different that the french name, the cooldown doesn't appear.

For example :

The rogue skill Sprint is called Sprint in french too, there is no problem the cooldown appear. The skill Puncture is called Piqre in french, the cooldown doesn't appear.

Except for Sprint, all the names are differents.

Is there a way to fix this bug ? Or a futur update will fix it ?

Thanks you !

Unhappy 1.1.4

For whatever reason I was not getting the errors that other people were experiencing with version 1.1.3, and with the update to 1.1.4 I'm getting this error message quite often:

I've gone back to version 1.1.3 and had zero problems since. Not sure what is at issue, but I thought that I would mention it.

anyone know of any other add-on that does something similar to XMacros?

Seriously getting sick of the error spam this one is causing.

Unknown command ?

Hi,

Since yesterday, the commands /xm xxxx are no longer recognized :-(

PS: I still have problems of bars disappearing when changing areas, and now I am also a victim of the disappearances in changing role( not always but unpredictable)

PPS: I just tested the version 1.0.1, everything seems ok ...
I have not tested enough to confirm the disappearance of bars, and I will forward to the 1.1.3 to find the latest operational

Ok, I found my problem, I created a macro last night, and it contains 26 lines, but I did not receive a popup alert.
Macro reduced XMacros works, but always with the same problems as previously
