    Now in v3, optional and separate Round Robin support!

    https://github.com/WowOpenBox/WowOpenBox/releases/

    Now has the most features and the best UI (as far as I'm told/know) of any Wow allowed software, still free, still opensource, still safest.



    Enjoy!

    v3.7 is out with a revamped faster RoundRobin (option), simplified UI (moved less used options into the Options menu instead of main window)

    Also supports "Stacked" layout in addition to all the other layouts already existing before.

    It works with many games too in addition to safe, fast, compliant World of Warcraft multiboxing (Eve, Path of Exile, SWTOR, Browser games, etc...)

    I can't believe this software is free! It's really good, way easier and better to use than anything else since the TOC changes.
    I still have a sub to the other paid software and I use this free option, its just way better so well done thanks.

    I installed this the other night and felt excited to finally multibox again. It is annoying to need to spam one ability that only one character does, but it is free, and the hardware solution is ridiculously expensive (while my desktop can run 5 copies of WoW). Open Boxer worked great, but M.A.M.A didn't work at all.

    My girlfriend asked to see and I spent 15 minutes just trying to get the windows right. I would change the arrangement and I would get crazy errors like one of my windows didn't show up at all or two were in the same spot. I opened and closed Open Boxer and 5 instances of WoW 3 times and finally used Window Layout to drag the window where it was supposed to be and then carefully line it up right.

    It would be nice if I could click a button and each window snapped to the grid.

    So, the space is a key that gets sent out. When I am writing a message, adjusting a macro, or struggling with DBox and M.A.M.A. I need to use the space, it switches to another window, and sometimes comes back, but sometimes it doesn't. Often if I wait one second it will come back, but half the time I will resume what I am doing and another window goes crazy because it didn't return.

    Is there any way of working around that besides reassigning the jump keybind and having OpenBoxer send out that key and not the space?

    So outside of the fact I write both, wob and mama are quite unrelated, we can debug mama issue in the mama addon thread or come to discord to figure it out

    What did not work with the automatic layout? you can use a custom if you want (curious to what didn't work for you with the default layouts you can see) and there is a snap to grid option already also.

    So first thing is that nothing is "sent out" - wowopenbox does not ever send anything; that would be software broadcasting capabilities.
    If you mean that you used the default settings, turned on Round Robin and then started chatting, you just have to turn off RR before chatting? you can also remove SPACE from the sample RR keys if you don't want it - it's just a default to show how to input RR keys.

    That's why there is a big arrow circle round robin indicator; so you remember it's on (maybe you turned off the overlay and didn't notice, turn it back on)

    I set my logitech keyboard to send Ctrl-Shift-R (the default but changeable RR toggle) to my G6 so I can easily toggle
    (G1-G5 I use for instant swap)

    Is there any way of working around that besides reassigning the jump keybind and having OpenBoxer send out that key and not the space?
    See above, hopefully that clarifies

    I also have in mind adding a configurable "dead zone", you would draw for instance your chat area, that would auto turn off RR like it already does if you switch to say discord (and it turns it back on when you switch back to wow windows)

    Turning off Round Robin and Always on Top didn't always work. It was thrilling when I turned off Always on Top in the main window and Windows Layout, but one of my WoW windows was always on top of OpenBoxer, so I needed to use [Win] + Down to minimize the game in order to mess with the options again.

    I could struggle with the add-on or I could use my macros from 2008. [shrug]

    Use the hotkey to toggle always on top if it's hiding the main window: Ctrl-Shit-T

    In general it's rare that it is useful unless you're doing very fancy layouts for mouse focus efficiency. You haven't replied to my question above (What did not work with the automatic layout...).

    If you can ever reproduce "X didn't always work" please come to discord or open a github issue as I fix all reported bugs rather quickly but I can't fix things that never happen to me and aren't reported.

    About MAMA did you follow the steps at https://github.com/mooreatv/MAMA-mul...EADME.md#setup

    Hi, thanks for the great software!

    I've been using it for a while and reactivated my 5 accounts for the first time since Nov.

    Is it possible, using the 'Profiles' to have 2 seperate Window profiles setup. One for using a 2 window profile, and one for using a 5 window profile? Sometimes I am 5 boxing on 2 monitors, and my profile splits up 4 clients onto one screen.

    Sometimes I just want to play 2 accounts, ie: my main toon, and my auction toon on the other screen. Or do some professions. When I'm only playing 2 clients, I don't want that 2nd client taking up only a quarter of my second screen. Just wondering if this is possible, or if I need to use the Window Layout tool every time.
