Description

This command will basically allow you to set/change your radar settings while in the game proper. Basically, you will edit/create your xml to have the defaults you wish and then modify those as needed while in the game. Your changes while in the game will be saved. Your other option is to create multiple xml files that suit your different styles of play and then load/unload/toggle those individually with the radar on <xmlfile> command.

Mouse Functionality

You will notice that while using the radar if you LEFT CLICK on a radar blip, it will target the actor for which the blip represents. If you RIGHT CLICK on a radar blip, it will create a waypoint to the actor for which the blip represents.

Examples

  • bind RadarOn "Alt+R" "radar on"
    • Sets your ALT-R key to turn on the radar
  • bind RadarOff "SHIFT+R" "radar on"
    • Sets your SHIFT-R key to turn on the radar

EQ2Radar XML File

The 'radar' command manipulates a radar UI element that is defined in an xml file (called isxeq2radar.xml by default). There is an example xml file included with the ISXEQ2 zip; however, for a description of all of the elements in the xml file and what they do, please see: Radar XML File Description.
