DynamicBoxer now works without ISBoxer (which is banned from WoW) thanks to MAMA and even better when using the only and best (and compliant with blizzard's rules) multiboxing software www.WowOpenBox.org.

Older information:

The way ISBoxer works currentlyis you need to go back outside of the game into the windows isboxer suite program each time you wantto create a new character or change whichever combination of characters you may want to be multi-boxingwith 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

Get the binary release using curse/twitch client or onhttps://www.curseforge.com/wow/addons/dynamicboxer oron WowInterface

The source of the addon resides at https://github.com/mooreatv/DynamicBoxer(and the MoLib library at https://github.com/mooreatv/MoLib)

Releases detail/changes are on https://github.com/mooreatv/DynamicBoxer/releases and the ChangeLog.txt

New You can now get DynamicBoxer benefits without requiring the use of the banned ISBoxer: just add MAMA: https://www.curseforge.com/wow/addons/mama-multiboxing


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 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

Q: How big/complicated is the setup?

A:Turn on broadcasting and 3 keystrokes: Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V, Enterdo 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 !


That's not a question, but a statement You can watch this mini series:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TseQzm4Ktb4&list=PLlutLO8wozeIy0U2htIL3O12bIE5cB1VA&index=1

Q: Do you have a demo?


Yes (though it's a bit old, doesn't show the config UI or new commands, etc... and volume is lowhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWGP20xmXTI&list=PLlutLO8wozeIy0U2htIL3O12bIE5cB1VA

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


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 ?


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?


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


ps: "sold" for free and opensource (it's here on github!)

Q: How do I ask more questions?

A:Ask here or catch me on discord

  • Use MoLib to/fromTable in LRU class and new 100th second log timestamp

1.4.1 June 27th 2019

  • Fixes for Issue #22 (Thanks Darknight for the debugging session)
  • Use (broadcast) /dbox show when logging in new cross realm characters, copy from slot 1,paste and hit enter everywhere (broadcast Ctrl-V and return key)
  • Use new MoLib with 35s default (changeable) threshold for invalidating messages (from 15s before)
  • Better printing of new vs changing team slot assignment
  • Fixed unable to paste (longer) token after using a shorter one in /dbox init or show
  • adding /dbox version to confirm/echo the version. pruned the list of commands shown from help ("/dbox")
  • fix background lua error and failure to detect EMA isn't present
  • fix case where popup on master wouldn't auto close (cross message trigger instead of channel)
  • fix bug where new master would try to message the old master (if token points to old master)
  • when cross realm try to sync up to 3 times to get full team, this fixes the most common cases of sync

1.4.0 June 26th 2019

  • Cross realm support: Added new communication/sync direct channel to allow for cross realm boxing (message the slot1/master).
    • Check if we are on the same realm and use alternate direct messaging when we're not.
    • Use the new MoLib CreateSecureMessage() and VerifySecureMessage() to create signed secured messages
    • We use regular chat whispers as the addon whispers do not work cross realm (!), with a whisperPrefix)We forward authenticated, new messages to the channel and we reply with our own known set.
    • Loop/misconfiguration(bug) detection
    • Limitations in this version (to be improved soon but it's already very usable/big step from 1.3):
      • You may need to issue "/dbox m" on the slaves that aren't in master realm if you reload the master
      • You may need to type "/dbox show" on the master to copy paste to the out of realm slaves "/dbox init" when changing master
  • Implemented issue #15: Reset the EMA team to be exactly the dynamic team, in slot order
  • Updated toc for BfA patch 8.2 (still works on classic too!)
  • Changed all functions to use : so I spent less time chasing silly error where I called with . instead of : or vice versa
  • Changed hashing to be 64 bits (2 32 bits hashes to be precise). It means your previous token will be invalidated (sorry!)
  • /dbox reset now takes a mandatory extra argument: /dbox reset all for previous all reset behavior andnew team and token options to clear the team history and the token, respectively.
  • Integrated MoLib's LRU for keeping last N masters
  • Fixed bug when changing master to longer one, the dbox show would be truncated to old length
  • Fixed bug where even on channel comm the data was sent twice

1.3.0 June 22nd 2019

  • adding /dbox show to show the current master token (Issue #16)
  • adding /dbox reset to clear all saved variables (start from scratch) this has similar effect to prexisting /dbox init butallows to completely clear all state (follow with /reload for it to take effect)
  • removed /dbox channel and /dbox secret as the token is now handled through ui; adding /dbox set toset token string from the command line instead of the UI (but /dbox show/init is better)
  • Master automatically enables "show token" (/dbox show) when it detects a change in team,so you can add members/copy existing token. Issue #17.And it automatically closes it once the team is complete !(broadcast the existing since 1.0 /dbox init if you want to change tokens across windows instead of reuse the last one)
  • Fixed #18 (bug with extra GetParent():Hide() causing master cancel button to hide UI)

1.2.0 June 18th 2019

  • Revamped simpler yet better and safer setup UI. One time setup is now only 3 broadcasted keystrokes:Ctrl-C , Ctrl-V , Return (copy, paste, enter; that's it !)
  • Fixed potential issue (as previously cross realm wasn't working anyway) issue with name-realm search and replacenow using MoLib's ReplaceAll which properly escapes all lua gsub characters for literal search and replace.

1.1.2 June 17th 2019

  • Fix issue #10 to allow original isboxer characters to be substring of one another, as well as new team characters(normalizes team in 2 passes)
  • Also address another TODO to remove unnecessary realm when same as self, earlier

1.1.1 June 13th 2019

  • Avoid rejoining the same channel right away while doing /dbox init setup UI (needed to clear a few more state)

1.1.0 June 13th 2019

  • Added optional id/password generator, you can tab between the 2 copy/paste etc (can be used for channelbut mostly for the secret, it must be pasted on all windows, if copied, /dbox random to get just this utility)(Issue #8) with lots of work/learning to get a cool fixed width narrow display and handle tab, escape, click, select,typing etc as one may expect.
  • Handle trial accounts where BattleNet info is nil (Issue #7)as part of fix prefix provided channel name with DynamicBoxer4, if left empty (but don't) uses "demo"
  • Static dialogs are reusing widgets without reinitializing them (!) so changes made in UI configneed to be reverted on OnHide (like clearing password field)
  • make sure we leave previous channel when doing "/dbox init"
  • fix bug on macro rewrite when missing slots (lua ipairs stops at first hole)

1.0.0 June 11th 2019 - 1.0 After 6 alpha/beta releases

  • Added UI (2 step dialog boxes, ran only once per account) to set channel/secret pair (Issue #2)
  • Also re runnable using /dbox init later
  • Limit maximum number of times we'll try sending/syncing (to 20 times/20s after channel join or /dbox m command)
  • DynBoxer.enabled boolean to turn off dynboxer even if loaded/running (used when user cancels out of the setup UI)
  • Luacheck'ed and some reformatting to 120 columns
  • Ensure /dbox j always sends the sync message
  • With all the above and testing showing things working, we are I believe feature complete for 1.0 and out of prototype mode!

0.1.5 June 10th 2019

  • Fix for lua error when not running in multiboxing setup (Issue #3)
  • Fix duplicate join event/messages
  • Debug output now has multiple verbosity level, use /dbox debug 9 for most verbose (new MoLib support for it)
  • Cleanup retries
  • Handle message send failure

0.1.4 June 10th 2019

  • Fix /reload on one character needing to rebroadcast from others (Issue #1)
  • Better color scheme
  • Only show isboxer warnings about bindings the first time
  • Split into 3 files for clarity and keeping ISBoxer code changes in one place
  • Refactor hooking to be cleaner and more generic and not conflict with our own functions
  • Globe lint fixes

0.1.3 June 7th 2019

  • Auto resync on channel join

0.1.2 June 7th 2019

  • First working version !! (and loads correctly along ISBoxer as independent addon)
  • Support for saved variables
  • Fix for ISBoxer loading bindings too early (when realm name isn't yet available), unregister its UPDATE_BINDINGS
  • updated /dbox help and commands
  • patches to isboxer.SetMacro so it can be ran more than once
  • need to use short name without realm when realm is same (!)

0.1.1 June 7th 2019

  • Same as 0.1.0 without the logo in the addon zip

0.1.0 June 7th 2019

  • Initial build as separate addon
