Text file in C:/ called strip.txt

Put this exact text in

inventory unequip 0 *enter*
inventory unequip 1 *enter*
inventory unequip 2 *enter*
inventory unequip 3 *enter*
inventory unequip 4 *enter*
inventory unequip 5 *enter*
inventory unequip 6 *enter*
inventory unequip 7 *enter*
inventory unequip 8 *enter*
inventory unequip 9 *enter*
inventory unequip 10 *enter*
inventory unequip 11 *enter*
inventory unequip 12 *enter*
inventory unequip 13 *enter*
inventory unequip 14 *enter*
inventory unequip 15 *enter*
inventory unequip 17 *enter*

Do a macro with the text /do_file_commands c:/strip.txt

Will only work, however, if you yell the mob off.

Hey! give credit where credits due: I originaly wrote that macro, (along with a much more complete explaination) and posted it on the sony boards. [edit] removed my link. You bastards don't need to know my nick on soe's boards...[/edit]

Furthermore, what you've posted wont work: /do_file_command is hard capped to only execute 16 commands- yours has 17, so the last 1 will get dropped.

this doesnt really work anymore, now after you unequip an item, you gotta wait like 6 seconds before you can unequip another

THIS is the full text of my original marco post.
Code:
multi step process:

1 make a hotkey with the following text: /do_file_commands c:/strip.txt, and associate it with a hot key

2 make a second hot key with the folloing text: /do_file_commands c:/strip2.txt, and associate it with a hot key

we have to use 2 hotkeys because we're limited to 16 commands per execution.

If your short on hotkeys, I'll detail an alternative method at the end.

3: open a text editor and type the following, exatly as shown:

inventory unequip 1

inventory unequip 2

inventory unequip 3

inventory unequip 4

inventory unequip 5

inventory unequip 6

inventory unequip 7

inventory unequip 8

inventory unequip 9

inventory unequip 10

inventory unequip 11

inventory unequip 12

inventory unequip 13

inventory unequip 14

inventory unequip 15

inventory unequip 16

 

Save it as c:/strip.txt

4: make a second file, as follows:

inventory unequip 17

inventory unequip 18

inventory unequip 19

inventory unequip 20

 

and save it as c:/strip2.txt

 

Now theres many ways to get from A to B, but none of them will allow us to put this all on one command.  You can chain command files, use multi-line macros, or use aliases, but the client will cut you off at 16 consecutive commands no matter which way you slice it.  If you have 16 items or less equiped (ie you don't use ranged, use a 2 hander, and arent worried about your 2 activatible slots (which I don't belive take dammage like the rest of your gear does) then you can whittle this down to 1 set of commands.  To find out what item is in which slot, use the following command: /info equiped [1-20].  Go through the numbers 1-20 to determine which slots you can skip.

 

Finaly, an alternative method of calling these commands if you don't have any hotkeys to spare: replace steps 1 and 2 with the following single step

make a 2 line macro, as follows:

/alias !:do_file_commands c:/strip.txt

/alias @:do_file_commands c:/strip2.txt

 

You can leave this in your macro list without linking it to a hot key, because you only need to execute it once per game session (even if you camp or switch toons- as long as you don't completely exit the game, the aliases will still work).  What you've done is use aliases to create a custom command.  Now, when the time comes, first type /! [enter] and you will strip your first 16 items, then type /@ [enter] and you will unequip your last 4 items.

 

Final note:  It may very well be the case that this is all moot, for the following reason:  while doing the betrayal quest, I remebered to strip my gear before getting killed by Lucan.  When I revived in the commonlands, I instantly got agro from a skelly (nice place they dump you, btw...) I tried equiping so I could defend myself, but got the following message: you may only equip 1 item every 1.5 seconds while %t is trying to kill you.  It could be the case that you can also not unequip items at a rate of more than 1 item per 1.5 seconds while under attack (I hadn't even engaged- I just had aggro).  If this is indeed the case, then your SOL.



One error- I neglected to mention that counting starts with 0, not 1, so the numbering needs to be adjusted accordingly. As pointed out, outdated, and nerfed- but still conceptualy valuable, since it introduces a few concepts (aliases and do_file_commands) that are still largely unknown, despite my having done my best to spread the word on how to use them effciently.
