What is DynamicBoxer, why is it useful ?

 

The way ISBoxer works currently is that you need to go back outside of wow into the windows isboxer suite program each time you want to create a new character (add import/add it) or change whichever combination of characters you may want to be multi-boxing with at the time.


  • This addon allows you to create only 1 team per layout and dynamically load any characters you wish into it

  • Likewise it lets you create new characters and teams dynamically without having to go back to isboxer suite, make changes there and export to innerspace

  • This is quite important for instance in classic when you can't create your teams ahead of time and want to get going asap with your teams

 

How does it work/how to use it ?

 

It's a very simple 3 (broadcasted) keystrokes you have to do once and then you're done, ready for multiboxing any combination of characters:
 
Ctrl-C (copy) Ctrl-V(paste) Enter
 
This will copy a secure token from your slot1 character to all the other so they can communicate securely and form a team! that's it ! (and the token is remembered for any other combination of teams that are on all on the same realm (but can be different from the setup one, and different faction too)). For cross realm parties you need to copy that token again for new combinations (as the out of realm characters need to whisper the current Slot 1)
 
Window 1 setup
Other windows setup
 
There are a number of /dbox commands (like /dbox c for the config, /dbox show to show current token, /dbox party to invite, /dbox party disband to disband, etc.... try just /dbox for the list in game) plus a config UI with mouse over explaining the additional features
config options as of 2.0
 

Notable additional features:


- (optional) Auto invite including auto conversion to raid if needed (very fast)

  as well as since 2.05 support for multi group like 2x4, 3x5, etc...
- Disband/Invite commands and key bindings

- Keybindings export to CSV

 

Q&A

Q: What does it do ?
A:
The core concept is to let you start isboxer/innerspace based on a layout (say 5 boxing with slot 2 healer and vfx in 1) once and then change which characters are actually in windows 1... N at will/whim.

It also works for brand new characters (making a new cool 5 Void Elf, team, just do it, no need to go back to windows)

Q: Why is that useful?
A:
Because you save time and only need a handful of core teams and "virtual"/role based characters in isboxer instead of dozens

Q: What else does it do ?
A:
A bunch of small utility things (and I can add more of you ask):
- It syncs up automatically your EMA or Jamba team, in the order of the slots (no more "can't push settings" ever)
- It (optionally) auto invites your team
- It (optionally) auto converts to raid as needed, making for super fast 6+ team assembly
- Has extensive mouse over tooltips in the addon options and key bindings sections to let you discover the features

- Export your keybinds to sheets (csv)


Q: How big/complicated is the setup?
A:
Turn on broadcasting and 3 keystrokes: Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V, Enter 
do that once, and you're done forever, even if you login 100 different teams!

Q: Does it work cross realm ?
A:
Yes since 1.6 and that makes it a big time saver if you need to visit a lot of realms.
In that setup I recommend you don't change the slot1 but change the other slot(s) and set the auto invite to say slot 2 so everyone phases to slot 2's realm (the changing realm)


Q: I prefer to watch videos than read a wall of text !
A: 

That's not a question, but a statement  You can watch this mini series:

Q: Do you have a demo?
A: 

Yes (though it's a bit old, doesn't show the config UI or new commands, etc... and volume is low

Q: Is there anything that won't work with it but would work with pure isboxer team reload/change ?
A:

First if you log the original team in, you get the exact same functionality + fast auto invite, auto raid conversion if needed/enabled, auto EMA team sync etc... so it's only additive feature wise, you don't loose anything

But yes, if you have a pro setup and try to swap say a Tank for a Healer in the same slot, DynamicBoxer will still remap the macros but they will be your Tank-style actions and thus not likely to be as helpful to your newly slotted Healer; yet if you you just need a quick swap in/out to collect some item, do a quest or anything of that sort, it will still save time and be functional (assist, broadcast, follow etc...), just don't go and do a Mythic + 20 with that setup :-)

Q: Does it/will it work with Classic ?
A:

Yes ! and it's great to get going even if you don't have characters created yet!

Q: I'm sold (or willing to try it), where do I get it?
A:

Wherever you like get your wow addons usually, typically on curse/twitch app or wow interface (search for "DynamicBoxer" with no space):
