    Default Using fake item links in chat messages

    Howdy,

    I remember reading once how to put "fake" item links in chat messages.

    /g casting CH on (fake link) %T (end fake link) please wait 10 seconds

    Found a thread on how to put the actual link of the spell in place, but I know there's a way to make the target's name appear to be a link (to change it's color mainly) in the chat message.

    Can anyone point me in that direction? (Searching for "link" or "item" returns a massive amount of posts so searching for it isn't getting me anywhere.) Thanks.

    Taken from a post made by a member of my raid team on our guild boards...

    Ok team, last time I posted here I screwed up the instructions. I have since edited the content of the post and have re-tested the results and they are verified to work properly. If you follow the below instructions to the T then it will work for you. Enjoy.




    Many of you have grouped with me and have seen my hotkeys where I call out to assist me on a mob and the mobs name is highlighted in bright pink much like when you link an item to someone. I have once again found the information about how to do this and would like to share it with you all.

    Read on:

    Say for instance your character name is Ayarie. Go to your desktop, start menu, and select search. Type in a query for Ayarie_karana.ini or whatever your character's name and server is.

    Open up that .ini file and scroll all the way down till you get to the section that contains all of your hotkeys.

    Usually most of you will have hotkeys that say something like, "CH on %t. Standby for 10 more seconds", or "Assist me on %t"

    Delete your old %t and cut and paste the following line where it used to be:

    0019718-00001-00001-00001-00001-000018A5E2B41 %t 

    Do this with all your hotkeys. Also works with other % codes.

    Now close the file and select save changes and exit all windows. Log into EQ and test your settings. They should work. If for whatever reason it does not work you can leave a message here or find me when I'm logged in. Tells are very welcome.

    Also, this trick can work with all of your hotkeys. Say for instance you are the MT at a raid and you want to make damn sure that people see the attack call go up as bright and shiny as the sun.....this trick is for you.

    Give it a try, Everyone.

    -Serignus

    Edit: Screwed up the instructions a bit. All is as it should be now. Thanks.

    Naturally, the next question is...

    How do you make the little symbol things in there? I know one cleric that puts little music symbols in her messages when doing a little dance...

    Hmm... ok I'll try that "item code" for default %t messages.

    I'd thought it was all zeros or something non-"item-code" like.

    Characters like the note or the heart can be copied and pasted in using Character Map and Notepad

    Ok, I guess I was unclear...

    I found putting hearts into chat messages.

    I found putting Spell Links into chat messages.

    What I'm looking for is the "presumed" part of the above posted answer "getting a name to be replaced with a 'link' (color change) in chat."

    /g casting Complete Heal on %T

    what i WANT is

    /g casting Complete Heal on (stuff to change the color to LINK color) %T

    A friend says he thinks he remembers how to do it and was gonna try to email it to me. If it works I'll post it here.

    OH... Warning. When you do the character map changes for special characters and save UDF-8 or whatever.... for me at least this killed my /friends. They were still on the .ini text but /who all friend and alt-f said I had no friends and I had to type them all back in by hand. Somewhat annoying.

    As posted above this is the way to have %T look like a link, just go to eq folder itek.ini scroll to the bottom where hot keys are and replace %T with the below.. copy and paste that EXACTLY as is..

    0019718-00001-00001-00001-00001-000018A5E2B41 %t

    FYI this got borked in the patches this past week. Replace the numbers with:
    00272D0000000000000000000000000000000003BEA06115A9
    and it will work again. You still need the boxes at the start and end and the %T - just replace the existing numbers in your toon_server.ini file (example, for me it's Inoke_Seventh.ini) with the ones above.

    There are a lot that work - I did the ;tell (click item icon) trick in game and got codes for like 7 items and they all worked fine, so pretty much any valid item number should work.

    The code I put before was a link to an Emerald, here are some others:

    Another FYI... The %t can be replaced with a symbol (I use little hearts) by using the character map in windows. Start > All programs > Accessories > System tools > Character map. (noted above)

    Remember to save your .ini file as UTF-8 if using symbols.
