    Default Changing charaters/sets without relaunching instance of wow?

    I'm wondering if it is possible to swap characters in set or change it a different set on the fly without having to shutdown the instance of WOW that character is running in?

    I tried swapping in a new char, saved and exported, then relaunched the character set. But unless I close WOW and let ISboxer reopen it, when I load in the new char, I still get the message saying ISboxer was expecting the character that I swapped out.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply but that's what I was trying. When ISboxer refreshes the client at the character screen, the Reload message that pops up still shows the name of the char that I swapped out and when I log in I get the wrong char message.

    At the character select screen, the Addon should not be loaded, or at least it may not have reloaded the correct version of the addon depending on what order you do things. Order is important.
    You should try by camp out to the character select screen for all games, load the new ISBoxer team there (right click the InnerSpace icon, select ISBoxer Character Sets, name of your new set), and then back on the character select screen, select the correct characters for that team. Once loaded into the game, if you still get that message, then it usually means the characters are actually in the wrong slot, which may stem from the fact that you haven't got the slots in your character sets properly aligned so that Slot1 is always characters from AccountA, and Slot2 is always characters from AccountB, etc.

    Ok, I got it figured out. I was relaunching the character set from the Toolkit, when I launched from InnerSpace in the taskbar it worked. Thanks

    Hello everyone. I was having the same question, so thank you for the post.

    From the link:
    "p.s. For it to work really well, the characters in each slot, should all be from the same account. i.e. Slot1 for each set, should always be characters from Account A, Slot2, should always be characters from Account B, etc."

    Thing is, that is the ideal world and not the real world, as not always the tank or healer (main pov toons) are in the same account.
    I play from healer perspective or tank perspective depending on the group, so I will have to change video/sound settings everytime I switch character set if the above condition is not met.

    I suppose there's no way to change this, right?

    Thank you and have a great holiday season.

    Correct there is no way to change it. The reason for the note, is because when you load the initial character set, it is that config-charname.wtf file which is loaded. The config.wtf file is not loaded again until you exit the game, and reload that instance, so using the camp out, swap toons, reload set, means that you may not end up with the config.wtf file you want, which in your case may end up being the sound/video settings.

    That said, you may be able to control all the values you want via cvars, or even ISBoxer Sound Actions, so it may be possible to configure a macro and a mapped key to fire it, so when you switch toons your main toon has the settings you want.

    That's what I do, using slot-swap macros.
