Hydra - Multibox Leveling Helper

17 - RealID forwarding

Hydra version:

WoW version and region/language:

Check the WoW login screen if you’re not sure!


Description of the problem:

Chat forwarding does not include RealID chat.

Steps to reproduce the problem:


Does the problem still happen when all other addons are disabled?


Exact text of the first related error message, if any:


Screenshot, if the problem is graphical:


Anything else you think might be helpful:

RealID chat is currently not forwarded with this addon. Regular whispers are. There is another multibox addon package that does include this functionality but I'd prefer to use this one, and using the two together simply for the chat forwarding is causing issues with group invites, so I'd prefer to use only one. There is no standalone addon for this functionality that I've found.

I feel this would help a lot with the issue plaguing multboxing, and that is RealID messages being sent to a slave toon. It's annoying.

    Try the attached file. It should (theoretically) forward Battle.net whispers and conversations to the master character, as long as the master character is also on an account that is Battle.net friends with the sender. Forwarded Battle.net messages should appear, and can be responded to, as if they were received normally.

    As I don't have two WoW accounts under a single Battle.net account, I can't actually test this, so please let me know whether it works. If it does not, please post any related error messages you get from BugSack.

    Not sure which addon, if any would be doing it. I'm not using the default chat either. I'm using yours, PhanxChat.

    I don't actually use that addon, but not being able to hit Enter means an error is occuring. Enable Lua errors under Interface Options > Help to see what the problem is.

    Edit: just tried actually using that addon. It doesn't work. "Whisper <character> doesn't actually *do* anything. In fact, it won't let me hit Enter to send text. /sigh

    Stuck using two box addons in order to have forwarded chat sucks :(

    There's no information on how that addon works, and from what I'm gathering the person sending the whispers needs to have the addon installed.

    I have it installed myself, but I still have to use jamba to forward them, and that addon doesn't play nicely with this one resulting in my having to disable one or the other to form a party(it auto disbands every time I do :( )

    The way Jamba works apparently is to sent RealID whispers to the master character via whispers, say my druid gets a realID whisper, she in turn copies the message in a whisper to my warrior who I'm actively controlling.

    If you know exactly how that addon's supposed to work, let me know, but it appears to do nothing for me and I haven't found any settings for it.

    I don't use Real ID, but I'll see what I can do.

    Edit: If all of your characters are on one Battle.net account, this addon should solve the problem for you:
