Overview

This feature is limited to Gaming Tools Pro subscribers

A preset is a set of characteristics that can be applied to any WinEQ 2 session at any time. Depending on the game, a few presets are defined by default, including Normal, Tiny and Full Screen. For games that have more flexible size capabilities (EverQuest 2 and World of Warcraft), 800x600 and 1024x768 presets are also available by default. Each game can have up to 10 presets.

Preset Usage

A preset is used automatically when launching a session via a profile. Profiles have a "Default Preset" setting that can be set to the desired preset.

Presets can be applied manually to any session by using the preset's hotkey, or by right clicking the title bar and selecting the desired preset from the Presets submenu. The default hotkeys are as follows:

  • Normal
Shift+Alt+N
  • Full Screen
Shift+Alt+F
  • Tiny
Shift+Alt+T
  • 800x600
NONE
  • 1024x768
NONE

  • Scale Factor
The scale factor to apply to the window. The actual size of the window will be multiplied by this number, so 0.5 will be half the size in each direction, and 2.0 will be twice the size in each direction. (Applies to DAOC, EQ, WC3)

  • Full Screen
