Hi I have just come back to wow after 2 years away, I used to use Control, Boxing assitant back in the day and the past two days have just reminded me how difficult it is to set up and get working.

I can get follow me, wait and mount/dismount working using hotkeys and pearl link, good you say.

All I want is my Priest to follow and chuck a heal and shield now and then. I tried advanced heal but wouldnt get a heal or shield during a fight though it all was queued. Went to basic healing I calibrated on my group member 2 health bar see the calibration marks and get a "all calibreted" message but as soon as I press F11 on boxing assistant get a failed health bar check on member 2 FYI warning. This is not rocket science I have been playing wow since day one minus last two years, I can follow instructions but this should not be so hard. I have had enough so gonna ditch this software and try to find something that actually works.

This will probably get removed but at least I have had my say.

Yours Ticked off Guinness

Hi Skip. The Boxin Assistant "Advanced Heal Settings" is anything but easy and has settings like "full health" check and a "player dead" check that you need to be sure is calibrated as well if using it. The Boxin Assistant first scans all health bars and adds those that need healing into a queue sorted by priority. Then when the heal is about to be cast it checks these settings:

1) When boxing multiple healers, you don't want them both to cast heals on the same player if they are already healed to full health. The Full health check makes the Boxin Assistant check that they actually still need healing before it is cast. 

2) You also don't want to waste time trying to heal a player that is dead and letting the rest of the group die, so there is a check that the player is still actually alive before the heal is cast.

3) Priorities allow you to set the importance of heals. A squishy wizard may need to be healed imediately, or you may want the tank to be the focus if in a dangerous area. If the battle settings are set to higher priority than the heals, then they may not be cast. 

The Boxin Assistant is highly customizable, but there is a learning curve. You might just want to use the "Simple Heal Settings" if you are having problems and do not understand what those settings do. Of course, if you just want to move on and forget it, then may you find happiness in whatever you decide to use. Take care and above all, enjoy your gaming.

Hi Doc,

Thanks for the reply. I do realise this is not a plug and play assisstant, I have used it in the past. I spent 8 hours solid yesterday and 5 today trying to get it to work there were so many things not happening or trying to happen on a very basic config. I went back to trying to get one thing working at a time but no joy. I will have another go tomorrow just so frustrating.

:)

 ok uninstalled all PCGaming Assisstants, deleted dir's. Re-installed assisstants.

Followed you basic video, got group, and mount commands working fine.

My first question is does the Control Ass have to have battle commands or can you play the char and have the Boxing Ass watch for pixel changes?

I have nothing in Control Ass Battle settings,

Boxing Ass I have assist, ticked key 1, Power Threshold set to 75% and one spell, Penance, on the first line bellow power threshold check.

1, Casting Penance, 50,7,3,9 - on battle start send 1, on battle stop send </loot>

Boxing Ass press F11 checking for health and combat, Control Ass press F11 Battle Mode: waiting for action, At this time Boxing Ass starts casting Penance, Priority 50, Queued 1 with Invalid Target on screen this the same if in combat or not. Pressing F12 on Control Ass stops Control Ass but on Boxing Ass screen in chat box puts Type '/help' for listings, but does stop combat settings.

I have on Control Ass put Assit ticked and send 1 and on battle start send 1 get the same results as above.

This is me just trying to get one command to work what am I doing wrong going to try setting up a heal and shield as thats on a different setting.

ok Healing Basic Heal setting

Group Size set to 2,

Heal 1 ticked, Shield, 3, 90%, 2, 15

Heal  2 ticked, Small Heal, 4,70%,2,2

Press F11, not in combat just standing in group on follow, casts Shield, then heals and re casts sheild at 15 sec continually doing this until F12 pressed.

Health bars 1 and 2 calibreted with display bar showinf full, 90%, 70% and 40% indication.

Cant be any simpler and still not working any ideas? If I could just get the shiled and heals working on both chars would be great its all I want.

Started a fight with Boxing assistant off then pressed F11 whilest in combat and lost 80% health no heal or shield until fight had finnished and my DH had regained its health to 100% so the heal percent check is healing when it sees the pixel am I correct but needs to heal/shield when it is not there?

Well, first thing is that you do not have to use combat on the Control Assistant at all. You can just use it to toggle the Boxin Assistant combat on and off if you like. Though if I am playing a tank I will often set it to spam 1,2,3 on my styles during combat. 

So if you Press F11 on the Boxing Assistant, do nothing on the control Assistant, and go into a fight what happens? It should heal and shield as needed. You should be able to test this by dragging a window over the health bars or inventory ect...

It sounds like you are on the right track, but maybe the long cast time on penance is an issue? See what happens without sending the Boxing Assistant into combat. Just let it follow and heal until you have it working the way that it should. You may want to tweak the thresholds on the heals to, and if it refuses to work with the simple heal settings then import them to advanced and recalibrate the health bars.

Hi Doc, thanks for the reply.

All I am after is to run around with my DH and have my Priest chuck a shield and heal me, I will play the DH with no battle settings.

If I press F11 on the Boxing Assistant and do nothing on the Control Asistant my Priest shields then heals me straight away and continues as per the recast times. So my DH has full health when the Priest casts shield and heals which is wrong to my mind. Now if I start a fight take a bit of damage then Press F11 the Priest does nothing when it should be shielding and healing.

I am not to bothered about battle settings for my Priest so just want the heal/shield to work. Any ideas ?

  OK I give up this just does not work, thats 4 days working with it, the only thing I can get working right is the hot keys for grouping and mount/dismount. Not bothered about combat help just want a shield and a couple of heals.

I have used your video guide got the hot keys working. Tried healing in basic but it is back to front it heals when the pixel is there when it should heal/shield when the pixel is no seen.

Just tried expert heal settings 5 lines

1- tick Shield Priest-78-grp1-1,2,14-cal-not

2- tick Heal Priest-75-grp1-2,2,6-cal-not

3- tick Disperse-79-grp1-3,2,110-cal-not

4- tick-Shield DH-77-grp2-1,2,14-cal-not

5- tick-Heal DH-77-grp2-2,2,6-cal-not

Not using control assistant, just F11 on boxing assistant and it cast as soon as F11 is pushed first cast is Disperse which is cal'ed at about 25% health left, then on to the heals sorry but I have had enough this just does NOT work. You can keep my money but I will not be using this again.

Hi Skip. Happy Thanksgiving. I understand your frustration. To do what you are talking about, just switch to the advanced heal settings. Start at the top one, calibrate on health bar 1 (not the target bar but the actual unchanging health bar) and set it to "Not See" color, check enable, set priority to 90. 

Set the target "Group 1" and the heal hot key to press. Do not calibrate or check any of the other features like emergency mode or full health, pre check, or skip color. Leave those disabled.

Press F11 to start the Boxing Assistant and let it run the whole time you are gaming. It should now notice when your health goes down, target you, cast the heal. 

Of course, I have grown frustrated with an item before and moved on with my life so I totally understand, heck, I wrote it. Whatever you decide, enjoy your gaming and have a great rest of your week.

Hi Doc, again thanks for replying. I have done as you said the 5 lines above are all that is in the expert healing and no other checks set but it just casts as soon as F11 is pressed and the fact it casts Dispersion first is even wiereder as it is calibrated at about 20% health left.

I am actually using it but in a manual type mode by having shield and heal set to hotkeys and casting myself during a fight not exactly how I wanted to use the assistant but at least I'm getting something out of it.

Again thanks for comments, If I could be bothered I would send a short video of this happening with as screen grab of my assistant settings but tbh I'm missing out on playing the game so wont.

All the best
