Dual screen and EC

Hello everyone! I am a returning player and currently running into a issue on dual screen comp I am trying to keep the window stretched across both monitors so I can have a split view with more real estate across the bottom for hot bars without shrinking ui scale (getting old bad eye site) every time I get it setup I try to logout so it’ll save but when I restart I have to do it all over again ? Is there another way or do I need to change a script?
So, to help you figure out how to do what you want, some questions:
1. Can you stretch other windows across both monitors with your current OS setup?
2. In UO:EC, User Settings > Graphics > Fullscreen = is not checked?
3. This is default EC not a Custom UI?
2 I have the EC in window mode full screen is not checked
3 I am not using a custom UI like pincos etc just standard download
so when I get everything stretched out and hot bars set then I logout when I log back in it is stretched but it is stretched right and all located in my right screen I feel like it is an so issue (win10) maybe if I set my left screen as dominate it will fix the issue?
Or display settings gosh i forget now
Target by Resource just gives "wood" and "red mushrooms" for knives. Unless @McDougle has some other trick with it. He does a lot more fishing then I do.
As far as I know, the most straightforward macro would use a dagger and then target a fish type, then delay 1, then use a dagger and target another fish type, and so on. The macro would chop an entire stack of fish at once, or multiple stacks of the same type of fish. It would only work on fish in your backpack though.
The macro would be something like:
Wait for Target Cursor
Target by Type (Set to fish type you want)
Wait for Target Cursor
Target by Type (Set to fish type 2 you want)
You can just keep adding Dagger,WaitForTarget,TargetFish,Delay to the macro as you fish.
Run the macro and any fish it doesn't chop, add to the macro.
Might have to mess with the delay, depending on your latency.
Have all the fish in one bag or container. Maybe an Agent to move them then there.
Use action "Store Default Object 1" to target the bag this will stay set until you change it
The macro would run as
Target Default Object 1
wait for target
Target First item
set for repeat 10
The macro will use dagger on first item in bag regardless of item type so saves entering all the types of fish. I use it when harvesting bone.
Warning it will try and cut up everything in targeted bag so use with cation.
Thinking about it you could use the ships hold or the new Huntsman reward as the target container.
Example: Instead of having to click a pickaxe then click the ground, each and every time you want to mine something, you can setup a Target By Resource macro.
Put Target By Resource as the first instruction in the macro, then drop a pickaxe in the Target By Resource box and choose the type of resource you want to harvest. Save the macro and assign a hotkey. Now you can press a key to automagically target and harvest from all of the resource nodes in range. (It does miss nodes at times.) Eliminates the click/target fest of normal resource gathering.
However, since this is a macro, you can put in a delay (say 10 seconds to finish that mining attempt) and then another Target By Resource, then another delay, then another Target By Resource, etc. Then you can set the macro to repeat.
Now if you push the hotkey the macro will mine 20 or 30 times in a row (however you have it set up) and mine all the nodes in range. You've just reduced a massive click fest into 1 keystroke.
Works for mining, lumberjacking, fishing, and probably some things I'm forgetting. So, for fishing with Target By Resource, just do as above, but put a fishing pole in the Target By Resource box when building the macro. It will fish out all the water resource nodes in range, no need to set up for individual fish.
