About M.A.M.A. Multiboxing

MAMA is an open-source MultiBoxing (dual-boxing) addon with the following design goals:

  • Opensource license (so if the current author gets hit by a bus, anyone else can pick it up and/or make improvements)

  • High quality code

  • Minimal dependencies

  • Low footprint (both memory and cpu and addon chatter)

  • Works with a single code base on both Wow Classic and regular (SL as of this writing)

  • Let's you have dynamic teams with or without ISBoxer

M.A.M.A. stands for MooreaTv's/minimal yet Awesome Multiboxing Assistant in reverence to grandfather of all (good) multi-boxing addons: Jamba (Jafula's Awesome MultiBoxing Assistant), which also inspired the EMA name.

Optionally: have a look at WowOpenBox.org for the only open-source windows multiboxing software verifiably compliant with Blizzard's new rules.

What does it do ?

Right now M.A.M.A relies on my DynamicBoxer for a lot of the functionality

  • Let's you use DynamicBoxer without requiring the now banned ISBoxer, including fast in order invite/disband, EMA sync, etc... just set your window slot # in the options panel or with /mama s N.

  • Let's you keybind or slash command "followme" and "promoteme" (/mama f and /mama l respectively)

  • /mama altogether and keybinding to do both "follow me" and "make me lead" in one efficient command. (1 addon message).

  • add /click MamaAssist in front of your macro to assist whoever you are leading with. (you can /mama lead othertoon to assist another character like a tank when it's not your own/you joined another party)

  • /mama mount and /mama mount dismount and keybindings for mounting/dismounting as a team. Note that only dismount works in classic.

  • Set EMA master when setting group lead (if EMA is installed and config checkbox is on, but /click MamaAssist is faster and more reliable)

  • Set loot to free for all (and back to group when inviting extra)

  • Share/accept quests on minions, Abandon quests as a team.

  • Take same flight path as your team

  • and more coming quite often... see /mama and /mama config

Input on feature prioritization is most welcome!

Mama might eventually also ensure your multiboxing or dual boxing team can do stuff like:

  • Auto vendor/repair

  • And more features per your request(s) !

Mama works well in conjunction with ISBoxer and DynamicBoxer but also with other multiboxing software or hardware


As mentioned above there is a one time setup/pairing with DynamicBoxer:

/mama s 1 in window 1, /mama s 2 in window 2, /mama s 3 in window 3 etc... then copy the token from dynamicboxer window 1 and paste in the other windows. Type return after Ctrl-C (copy) from window1 then paste Ctrl-V in all other windows as prompted. It may take a /reload the first time to complete the one time setup.

Set in game keybind for "mama alltogether" so you can trigger both follow me and make leader in 1 key/addon message. (and the other commands too)

Add /click MamaAssist in front of your macro to assist whoever you are leading with.

If you see anything red in the dbox-mama blue status window: something is wrong! try /reload and read the messages in the chat window if it persists. Repeat the setup carefully (/dbox show if you closed the dialog) and if that still doesn't work come to discord.
