Returning Player - Multi Box Question Actools

Recommended Posts

Hello. It has been a handful of years since I have last played this game on Sunset. Just recently I have had an urge to play the game a little here and there. I am trying to dig deep and remember my old multi box setup. If I remember correctly the program could be AC Tool. I can't be too entirely sure, but I have downloaded the program and it looks sort of familiar. I had macros setup to run 3 toons at a time. For the life of me I can't recall how I was about to have the macro interact with the individual windows. After I loaded the 3 different instances of E&B I vaguely remember what I would do to somehow rename the windows so I can call on the individually with SetActiveWindow or something. My memory if very fuzzy on this. I know I was able to achieve something like this before and it would be a great help if somebody could jog my memory on what I could of possibly have done. I have been searching forums for the past 4 days here and there searching for my answer. So far I could not find a possible answer so I will just reach out on this forum for help.

 

I have also made some time to see if I could recover my old macro files or any information I had on what I was doing. I have search old hard drives and turned up nothing. Looking forward to any help. Thank you.

TraderMagoo's Tech post for "custom resolutions"

is all I've needed to support multi-boxing.

 

I have an old Win 7 Pro [64] box with an i3 cpu and 8 Gb ram ... works fine with three instances.

Hi Lquan, thanks for your response. I am currently not having any issues with running multiple instances of Earth & Beyond. My issue is I can’t recall how I was able to get AC Tool to interact with the different running instances of the game. I used to play 3 toons and had macros to Target assist firing, shield recharging, etc. I can’t remember how I was able to determine what game window I would be sending key commands to. I do not remember what I did. A few guesses would be that I was able to change the windows name by alt clicking right or left and changing there. Or it could of been a command line in command prompt. I just do not recall. If I would lean towards one way or another it would be renaming the window with a click command or something. I am pretty sure somebody has help me in the past, either I read it on the forums, somebody multi boxing told me in game, or other.

Ah yes, of course. It was all my mistake. I was confused on what program I was using so long ago. This was all a miss understanding. I searched for multi boxing’s demos and one of them was using HotKeyNet. With watching this video and watching his steps of renaming windows, I quickly realized I was mistaken and the error for confusion was my fault. I got it to work the other night and have started to rebuild a script from what I remembered doing. Thanks for the help again and I will see you out there.
