Macro folder protip - share your mains macros with your alts.

Post by Totien » Thu Feb 14, 2019 7:24 am

Since the player IDs changed I thought I'd share how I handle my character macros. I have one folder in USER, and a bunch of links to the same folder. This way I only need to edit one characters macros and they're shared across all my characters.

You first need to find the hex value of you main characters folder. I suggest doing the same for your alts.

Open this tab, your calculator in programmer mode, and CMD as admin.

Search for your main and any alts from the URL above.
Convert the 5 digit number to a hex value.
Rename the folder of any alts, I used

Code: Select all

original hex - charname
.
In your CMD prompt, type

Code: Select all

cd C:\Program Files x86\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\USER
Now you'll create the links to the main directory. The command in CMD is

Code: Select all

mklink /D alt main
So to link the macros used by Altfortots to Totiens macros, I type

Code: Select all

mklink /D 9604 959b
A new folder will be created with the alts hex which is usable by the game. And that's it! If you want to edit the macros, you'll have to edit your main and relog your alt. Enjoy fam. Let me know if you have any trouble.
