MQ2DPSAdv is designed to be the step up from MQ2DPS. It comes with a UI Window and is much more specific about the information it parses. The window displays information about live or past fights, depending on your selection.

Macro Data

UI File

Placing the UI File in EQDir/uifiles/default is recommended. After loading the plugin you will need to reload your UI for the window to show up.

Automatic Fight Display

The two current choices for automatic updating are <Target> and <MaxDmg>.

Using the <Target> Setting, the List will show the active fight of your target. It will only update to your target if your current target is an active fight, otherwise it will stay on the last active targetted fight until a new active target is found.

Using the <MaxDmg> Setting, the List will show the active fight with the most total damage. If the current Max Dmg mob dies, the plugin will update to show the dmg of the new max damage fight as as soon as it registers atleast one hit since the death of the last max dmg mob (It will still include all damage done to that mob since the start though).

All fights are saved in the dropdown and can be viewed individually.

Hit Modes

MQ2DPSAdv currently works with: For You Hit Other: Normal, Abbreviated, Numbers Only (Numbers Only can be inaccurate due to all damage being applied to your current target only, including ae attacks and ripostes.) For Other Hit Other: Normal, Abbreviated. (Does NOT work with Numbers Only).


Most options can be controlled via the settings tab in the UI window. However, the WarnedYHO, WarnedOHO, MeColor, MeTopColor, NormalColor, NPCColor, TotalColor, EntHover, & EntHighlight are manually set in the ini if required.

Settings Page

  • ShowMeTop: This will put an entry at the top of the list for your character.
  • -> Only < #: Causes you to show up at the top of the list only if you are below this rank.
  • UseRaidColors: Activates Raid Coloring. Non-Class Colors changable in INI (Read Below).
  • LiveUpdate: Will cause the DPS Listing to update as soon as damage comes in. This may be CPU Intensive.

  • Fight I/A: Amount of time before a fight will be marked In-Active, and not used for MaxDmg. Default 8.
  • Fight T/O: Amount of time before a fight Time's Out and is marked Dead. Default 30.
  • Entry T/O: Amount of time inbetween attacks that must pass to not be counted towards Time DPS Calculation. Should be at least 7 due to DoT-Only Damage being every Tic (6 Seconds). Default 8.
