I have a line which should assist me. But if some spells make wards or pets then this line will target always the ward/pet, not me.

/pause 1,/bca //tar "me"
/pause 1,/bca //assist
....
....

I tried it with
- me
- "me"

nothing works. With "me" I get more or less problems with MQ2HotButtons.

Is there an easy way to target me for others via /bca instead of wards/pets?

it would be ${Me}


but why not just /bca //assist soandso


or: /bca //tar ${Target}
or: /bca //tar id ${Target.ID}

Great guys, many thanks - that was a hot experiment - I should not test such things live on named... but this part works now - here a bit feedback:

Does NOT work:

/bca //tar "name"
/bca //tar ${Me}
/bca //tar ${Target}
/bca //xtar 1
/bca //tar myself
/bca //assist ....

Does work:
/bca //tar id ${Target.ID}
/bca //tar id ${Me.ID}

Now I don't have problems anymore that wards/pets are targeted first instead of the controller. Because it is a raid configuration with 5 groups where 2 groups are partly outside (not in raid) only the above worked.

"Button To ME ALL" works now too:
/multiline ; /bca //tar id ${Me.ID} ; /face ; /bca //stick 10

The wrong targeting of "name.ward/pet" instead of "name" seems a strange bug in EQ or somewhere in MQ2.

Many thanks, you all are great!!!

It works in MQ2Hotbuttons too now. Hopefully I manage somehow to install the right labels into MQ2Hotbuttons. The GUI does not want it in this form:

[MQ2MYButtons_Buttons]
MyButtonLabel_1=Attack GRP1
MyButtonCommand_1=/multiline ; /bct 1 //tar id ${Target.ID} ; /bct 1 //pet attack ; /bct tank //attack on ; /bct 1 //stick 10 ; /bct 1 //attack on
MyButtonLabel_2=Tank GRP1
MyButtonCommand_2=/multiline ; /bct 1 //tar id ${Target.ID} ; /bct 1 //tank //attack on

MyButtonLabel_11=Target GRP1
MyButtonCommand_11=/multiline ; /bct 1 //tar id ${Target.ID}
MyButtonLabel_12=Stick 10 GRP1
MyButtonCommand_12=/multiline ; /bct 1 //tar id ${Target.ID} ; /bct 1 //stick 10

It only shows "unknown" and the number of the button instead of the e.g. Label "Attack GRP1".
Reloading of the GUI did not work.
Relogging of the account did not work.
So something seems wrong here but I cannot see it.
I expected that this displays the appropriate Label.
