Fun with Macros, Part 1

Macros are an invaluable tool for piloting combat units on 3030MUX. They shorten most commands considerably, making them easier to type (and less prone to mistakes).

1. First we will see which macro sets are available. Macro sets are collections of individual macros. Type:


Note that all macro-related commands start with a period.

The output will look something like this:

Num  Description                         Owner                     LRW
0    Generic                             Fingon                    -R-
16   DC Macros                           Paul Matra                -R-

21   Strider's Set                       Strider                   -R-
23   Zak's Macs                          Zak Killmen               -R-
24   Combat Macros                       Forge Crater              -R-
25   Spock's Macros                      William Malter            -R-
26   Tech stuff                          Albert Huang              LR-
28   Iceman's Top Gun Macs               Iseykawa Ieyasu           -R-
36   Tanker's Macros                     Richard Mallory           -R-
43   Needful Things!                     Kerm Woodston             LR-
45   Combat/Recon                        Thrantor Youngblood       -R-

2. We want to have the basic set for now. Once you learn more about macros, you may find other sets that you like better or have more options. To add the basic set (Macro set #0) to your macros, type:

.add 0

3. To see what macros you have, type:


You will see something like this:

Graphic 5B

#: Num  Description                         Owner                     LRW
0: 0    Generic                             Fingon                    -R-
Current Macro Slot: -1

You can see that macro set #0 (the general set) was added to your slot #0.

Once you have added the general set, move on to the next lesson.
