I am not new to making/using macros (years in EQ), but VG is driving me nuts *chuckle*
Here's the background: I use four macros for weapon swaps, two work fine and two do not, though they have the same syntax and basic info.
First macro equips my sword and shield and works fine with a single click; if I have a 2-hander already equipped, it puts that in inventory and equips sword and shield; no error messages:
/wear "name of sword"
/wear "name of shield"
Second swaps out my sword and shield to inventory and equips my 2-h axe just fine with a single click:
/wear "name of greataxe"
/remove "name of shield"
Now things get wierd - the two macros to do the same as above for my 2-maul and 2-sword do NOT work properly. The macro is identical to the one for 2-h axe save the name of the weapon.
The two macros WILL work if I hit the key twice:
- first time removes shield and gives this error message: error: attempt to unequip item with invalid handle (-1) (for the 1h-sword)
- Hitting it again equips the maul/2h-sword, but gives this error message: error: cannot equip that item (for either the maul or 2h-sword)
I have double-checked the spelling for both weapons - both are correct. The ONLY difference (besides the names of course) in these two from my axe is that the axe is uncommon and the other two are common weapons; I may be reaching here for a causitive factor, but...
I even tried the /equipbyhandle command (listed in the /listcommands Inventory) and get error message that that command is not usable *sigh*.
Any ideas / help?
