This way not only are the windows already renamed when launched, but I can pin each exe to the taskbar separately (you can't pin the same exe 5 times). I needed them all pinned separately that way I could use windows shortcuts to switch between them <windows key> + 1 will either open or focus the 1st item pinned on your taskbar, + 2 does the 2nd one, etc.
    The swapping of Focus using this approach has been fast for me. The main issue I have had is that if I press the key twice I swap to the window and then minimize it. Anyway to turn the minimization off if you do <windows key>+1 while already having that window active?

    I found a use for the included Keyboard Manager in ShiftWindow setups. I can remap shortcuts like Ctrl+C to any other key combination, but specify that it only applies to WowClassic.

    I also map the same shortcuts to macros in game.
    Lets say I have my Hunter in the main window. If I press Ctrl+C, the remapped command Ctrl+Alt+Numpad0 tells ShiftWindows to put my tank in the main window. Ctrl+Alt+Numpad is also mapped to a bindpad macro on my hunter which passes leader to the tank and changes hunters action bar from 1 to 2. If i repeat the Ctrl+C when my tank is in the main window this does the same thing but changes my tanks action bar from 2 to 1.

    All characters have similar configurations and on action bar 2 that have macros using /follow Party1 or /assist Party1. With MouseWinX mentioned earlier its easy to enable the "activate Window when I hover over it" setting in Windows.

    Heres a Pic of my current setup. I even configured a second way of opening VLC player to use the remaining space on my second monitor in a no windows decoration setup. I think Im getting quite pleased with my setup. (Thanks again jak3676!)

    Determined to not be shutout by Bliz here is my HW boxing solution. 8 pedals and 35 buttons. Via relays one button press can send a signal to 1-4 arduino keyboards. The arduinos send the key press to the connected
    PC. Its a lot of work to build but works well so far. Currently only have 2 PCs running but will have a few more soon.

    Now that is some serious dedication to boxing! Would love to see future updates.

    I would suggest that if anyone is still doing the 'roll-your-own' approach with ShiftWindow, FancyZones or other window managers, and X-Mouse or Microsoft accessibility (focus-follows-mouse) options, WoW Open Box is a much better solution - it easily integrates the functionality of all those other tools. [WoW] Wow Open Box is released - fully functional open source, free, verifiably compliant multiboxing software (dual-boxing.com)

    I'm sure there's some argument that people will make between JMB and WoW Open Box, and there are some minor differences. But in my opinion they are very feature-comparable. If you're going with non-broadcast software multiboxing, I think those 2 are the only viable options right now.

    (If you're going full hardware - that's a whole other discussion).

    That's amazing. Please update us as you progress!

    I find Fuii-Boxing perfect, had no issues using it, I just adjusted the layout a little to my needs which you can easily do with the script.

    A few tips:

    - Order team list by name
    - Use BT4 (or any other equivalent addon) to create HUGE buttons for heal / shield / buff / decurse etc. next to each member using macros to target party members (so the bars are always located next to the party member) for easy clicking
    - Use EMAC auto intive / follow / unfollow keybinds
    - Leatrix plus for extras

    I've been working with my 5 account setup for a while now. Here is a simplified explanation of how my rig (seen if previous posts) works. The example here is how I am controlling the 3 DPS accounts for my 5 man team.

    Press and hold the button > This activates a relay for each of the boards > The relay closes a circuit that inputs to the Arduino board > The Arduino is running a keyboard code to repeat the keypress ever 20ms. The keypresses are sent to each PC separately. All I have to do is hold the button down (pedal in my setup) and the DPS assist my tank and cast away.

    After a few weeks working with this setup I feel I have about 90% of the functionality I had with SW broadcasting. I've been back to running dungeons as well. Farming in the open world. No messages from Bliz.

    Holding down a key to repeat a command is against the rules of the game.
    Do not send me a PM if what you want to talk about isn't absolutely private.
    Ask your questions on the forum where others can also benefit from the information.
