Ffxiv bard macro 2020

Ffxiv bard macro 2020 DEFAULT

Important Update

This tool is no longer being developed. It has been replaced by Bard Music Player, the sequel with much more functionality and stability for playing back Midi files in exchange for dropping Text file arrangement support. The project will still exist in an archived form here, but support will no longer be given. I cannot guarantee the functionality of this program across major game patches. Though, AHK is a pretty simple language. Feel free to fork this.



FFXIV Bard Macro Player

This is an utility to play 3 octave arrangements from text files and midi files using the Autohotkey language. It loads and parses ffxiv's KEYBIND.DAT file (autodetected by access time) to find the keystrokes for the Performance actions, loads and parses the text/midi files and converts it to millisecond time format, and then implements a note player that sends the correct keystrokes to the FFXIV window.

Usage

Download latest version

Make a folder to contain BardMacroPlayer.exe, BardMacroPlayer.ini (optional) and a subdirectory called "songs". You should put midi (.mid) files and bard arrangement songs (.txt) in there. The program should be self-explanatory enough. You can hide the program while in-game by pressing the Insert key (default). The stop button reloads the selected song/track. Below the stop/play button is a small slider which offsets the midi track range. It's meant to be used if your midi file plays too high or too low for your bard's 3-octave range, which ranges from C3 to C5 (C6 for the C+2 note). To apply the octave offset, reload the file with the stop button after adjusting the slider.

Midi files

Midi files is an experimental feature. It should be able to pick out suitable tracks to play and perform them without problems. However, there might be some issues due to the complexity of the midi file format. In such case, please open an issue and attach the midi file with problems. The program scans and lists midi tracks available to play, as indicated by a number next to the filename. Tracks are what usually separates left to right hand as well as different instruments. If it lists many tracks, be aware that the midi file may be complex to play. As mentioned above, the octave slider is used to load midi tracks with an offset. If you don't know what offset you should have, just try with all the steps, or analyze which keys are being played by a midi player such as MidiPiano.

Bard arrangement file format

These are simple text files designed to be easily edited in notepad. Notes are depicted as they are in-game [C, C#, D, Eb, E, F, F#, G, G#, A, Bb, B] and the upper and lower octave (appending [+1] and [-1] to the note) as well as the single [C+2]. Pauses are depicted as forward slashes [/], which can be concatenated together. Each pause and newline has a default duration of milliseconds. Notes and pauses should be separated by one space.

You can set some settings specific to each arrangement by writing them as individual lines anywhere in the file.

  • followed by a number sets the pause duration in milliseconds. turns the pause in to a millisecond pause.
  • followed by a number adds a delay in milliseconds to each note. makes each note take 50 more milliseconds to perform. This can be used to slow down/speed up the composition.

BardMacroPlayer.ini

Configuration file. Requires application reload.

  • to enable/disable the exit prompt.
  • to toggle the music player visiblity. Must be focused to FFXIV to use it.

Work in Progress &#; This is mostly going to start out with the macros I myself use, then go from there.

Table of Contents &#; Job Specific Context Sensitive Macro Examples

Archer & Bard

For Bard Macros I tend to use a different style of macro than I usually do.  Its in the interest of keeping up dps and always using the most optimal action once its available. In this macro style I list multiple actions in the same macro, but I only expect a single action to go off each time I press it. The skills are purposely listed out in a certain order  so that if my preferred action is available, that it is used first.

My Single Buff Macro looks like: 

/micon &#;Raging Strikes&#;
/ac &#;Raging Strikes&#; <me>
/ac &#;Hawk&#;s Eye&#; <me>
/ac &#;Blood for Blood&#; <me>
/ac &#;Internal Release&#; <me>
/ac &#;Barrage&#; <me>

The first skills I always use right after throwing on a few buffs is: Straight Shot > Venomous Bit > Windbite.

Once those are all applied I use a standardized macro that just uses the first skill available.  I spam this macro until either some buffs need to be reapplied, Straight Shot procs, or the damage over time shots (Venomous Bite & Windbite) need to be reapplied.

That standard &#;spam&#; macro is as follows:

/micon &#;Heavy Shot&#;
/ac &#;Misery&#;s End&#; <t>
/ac &#;Bloodletter&#; <t>
/ac &#;Heavy Shot&#; <t>

Also I use the following Silence Macro:

/micon &#;Blunt Arrow&#;
/ac &#;Blunt Arrow&#; <t>
/p  Silence <t>  <Just used it> <se.9>

Its kind of odd how I have my hotbar.  I have 5 most used macros and skills, then most all of the other actions on the skillbar are set up to show me what action will actually be used by the macro listed above it.

Conjurer & Whitemage

Since &#;s patch notes, the first thing I did was create a Protect macro that has a party sort command with it.

/micon &#;Protect&#;
/ac &#;Protect&#; <me>
/psort

On my whitemage, most of my macros have more to do with targeting quickness. Cures &#; I don&#;t tend to macro, as its just as quick to really utilize the party list to pick your party target. While I&#;d love to macro full party stoneskin for the beginning of the fight, I don&#;t &#; mostly because people don&#;t tend to wait around and people aren&#;t always &#;out of cut-scene&#; when their turn comes up in the macro&#;s rotation.. so I just manually do it.  Also personally, I don&#;t tend to trust mouse over macros because they seem to be flaky in my opinion.
Ironically enough, the things I macro most often on whitemage is notifications or offensive spells. Offensive spells &#; I do this so that I can help occasionally with dps, but so that I don&#;t have to actually switch the target off of whoever is needing their health watched. In reality, I shouldn&#;t be attacking things that my target is not. That said, I configure my macros so that it doesn&#;t matter if I&#;m casting on my target&#;s target, or my own. I can switch targets if I want. It makes it all very flexible.

Just using Aero as an example, but most of my damage spells are set up in macros like this:

/micon &#;Aero&#;
/ac &#;Aero&#; <tt>
/ac &#;Aero&#; <t>

This allows me to have one macro that works regardless of wither I&#;m targeting the mob, or wanting to stay locked onto the target I&#;m healing.

If you do like mouse overs &#; it would look something like this:

/micon &#;Cure&#;
/ac &#;Cure&#; <tt>
/ac &#;Cure&#; <t>
/ac &#;Cure&#; <mo>

Sometimes I just want the party to know what is being done.. The couple I use most often are the following:

/micon &#;Raise&#;
/ac &#;Raise&#; <t>
/ac &#;Resurrection&#; <t>
/p Casting <Raise> on <t>! Please be careful!

**Note I included a line in the above so that I can use this same macro to either use Raise or Resurrection. Its positioned in the same spot on all my hotbars that has it as an option.

Arcanist & Scholar

On my scholar, again my macros are centered around quick targeting, as well as getting my fairy to be a little more useful. Since creating these macros, I tend to leave my fairy in &#;Obey&#; a lot more often, and its been really nice being able to have access to the fairy&#;s buffs (on their own cooldown) when I want, or when I think they&#;d be useful. Because of this I&#;ve created a macro that automatically puts them in the stance I want upon being summoned. (Note: My preference is for Selene to be on Sic, but obviously you can adjust this however you want.)

For Eos:

/micon &#;Summon&#;
/ac &#;Summon&#; <me>
/pac &#;Obey&#;

Or for Selene:

/micon &#;Summon II&#;
/ac &#;Summon&#; <me>
/pac &#;Sic&#;

Advanced Summon w/ Hotbar adjustments

/micon &#;Summon&#;
/ac &#;Summon&#; <me>
/hotbar action &#;Physick&#; 3 1
/hotbar pet &#;Embrace&#; &#;Eos&#; 3 2
/petaction &#;Obey&#; <me>

NOTE: &#;3&#; in the example above denotes hotbar #. &#;1&#; & &#;2&#; in the example above denotes which slot on that hotbar to place it.

When removing a debuff, I often have to decide if its better to heal first, or remove the buff. Thanks to the forum posts, someone there had mentioned that they just have their fairy heal at the same time&#; Brilliant!  Here is a macro that makes that happen (If your fairy is set to Obey).

/micon &#;Leeches&#;
/ac &#;Leeches&#; <t>
/pac &#;Embrace&#; <t>

Again I don&#;t like to fumble through targeting if I don&#;t have to, so all my Damage over Time skills and other offensive spells are set up much like my whitemage offensive spells.

/micon &#;Bio II&#;
/ac &#;Bio II&#; <tt>
/ac &#;Bio II&#; <t>

Generally when I&#;m using Succor, Its after widespread damage. I have a macro that gives a little extra healing effort in those cases. It looks like this:  (again only works if pet is in Obey status&#;

/micon &#;Succor&#;
/ac &#;Succor&#; <me>
/pac &#;Whispering Dawn&#; <me>

Sometimes its just nice to have the added boost to both you and your pet&#;s healing. For that I have this macro

/micon &#;Rouse&#;
/ac &#;Rouse&#; <me> <wait.2>
/pac &#;Fey Illumination&#; <me>

Arcanist & Summoner

Gladiator & Paladin

/micon &#;attack1&#;    (line needs testing)
/mk attack

Work In Progress &#; I&#;m trying to remember the proper syntax for line one for it to show the attack1 icon.. I&#;ll mess with it more.

I&#;m told that line 2 works by simply assigning whatever the next currently unassigned attack number would be. This could free up some space on your hotbar if you currently had each one listed.

Marauder & Warrior

Lancer & Dragoon

Pugilist & Monk

Thamaturge & Blackmage

Disclaimer: So far I haven&#;t played this class/job all that much, but here are some that are useful.

/micon &#;Aetherial Manipulation&#;
/ac &#;Aetherial Manipulation&#; <t>

This would require you to target the person you want to be brought to first, then click this macro.  Not too much functionality, since this is basically what the skill icon itself would require as well, but I showed it here just to make the next macro thought make sense.

Lets say you feel comfortable to always be taken to wherever the person listed third in your party list would be. (Most cases, Off tank or Healer). In that case you could replace the < t > with the party number. Example as follows:

/micon &#;Aetherial Manipulation&#;
/ac &#;Aetherial Manipulation&#; <3>

Flare Macro:

/macroicon &#;Flare&#;
/ac &#;Swiftcast&#; <me>
/ac &#;Flare&#; <t>
/ac &#;Convert&#; <me>

Rogue & Ninja

/macroicon &#;Fuma Shuriken&#;
/macrolock
/ac &#;Ten&#; <wait.1>
/ac &#;Ninjutsu&#; <t>
/macroicon &#;Raiton&#;
/macrolock
/ac &#;Ten&#; <wait.1>
/ac &#;Chi&#; <wait.1>
/ac &#;Ninjutsu&#; <t>
/macroicon &#;Katon&#;
/macrolock
/ac &#;Chi&#; <wait.1>
/ac &#;Ten&#; <wait.1>
/ac &#;Ninjutsu&#; <t>
/macroicon &#;Suiton&#;
/macrolock
/ac &#;Ten&#; <wait.1>
/ac &#;Chi&#; <wait.1>
/ac &#;Jin&#; <wait.1>
/ac &#;Ninjutsu&#; <t>
/macroicon &#;Doton&#;
/macrolock
/ac &#;Ten&#; <wait.1>
/ac &#;Jin&#; <wait.1>
/ac &#;Chi&#; <wait.1>
/ac &#;Ninjutsu&#; <t>
/macroicon &#;Huton&#;
/macrolock
/ac &#;Jin&#; <wait.1>
/ac &#;Chi&#; <wait.1>
/ac &#;Ten&#; <wait.1>
/ac &#;Ninjutsu&#; <t>

I want to use macros to maximize the DPS damage I can do. for attack moves and 1 for buffs. Any suggestions or ones that work for you?

"Best to be single and live all alone
Than to be married, and nagged by a crone"

The best way to maximize DPS is to not use macros. That said, there are quality of life macros that can be nice if you're willing to accept they can and will slightly hurt your DPS.

I don't play bard but every topic I've read about this says it a bad idea and will hurt your dps.

/ac "Heavy Shot"
/a Pewpewpew
/sh Pewpewpew
/p Pewpewpew
/fc Pewpewpew
/l Pewpewpew


Don't forget the sound effects.

Don't use macros. The only acceptable one I do is put barrage on my heavy shot macro. Everything else is manual.

No. You'll want to save all the buffs for quick bursts for adds and such.

The only acceptable ones I have are

/macroicon "Bloodletter"
/ac "Mysery's End"
/ac "Bloodletter"
/ac "Heavy Shot"

and

/macroicon "Windbite"
/ac "Windbite"
/wait
/ac "Venomous Bite"

Maybe not entirely optimal, but I'm not min-maxer and they save a lot of space on cross bars.

The most annoying ones are obviously song macros from other bards who just love to spam the party chat with their nonsense lyrics.

These aren't acceptable.

~I'm Always right~

Macros are handy for letting your party know of important things. For example, as a healer, I state when I am applying Eye for an Eye, and when I am raising a specific person. This lets the other healer or someone else know not to waste their time with that person, as in some oh s*** moments where everyone died you can waste time raising people, only to find out the other healer swiftcast raised that guy already.

As a Bard, I'd imagine you'd want to let you party know if your singing a certain song. Maybe the healer will notice you said it and approach you for some mana.

Unfortunately, most macros really suck when it comes to dishing out damage. There is a delay (and you will notice it).

I suppose you craft everything manually too. Because making life easier and more fun is bad.

Facepalm. Eye for an Eye is not important enough for us to know about when you apply it, especially if you are the only healer. BLMs and SMNs nevery apply it anyway. So just do your job silently please. Raise party chat macro is good, but that's it.
Would you like to see me spam the party caht with nonsense like this
/p "Flare! <se.2> Just used it to devastate the enemy."
/p "Swiftcast used just now. <se.1><se.2><se.3> Cooldown 60 seconds".
/p "Hey foe, get some DoT! <se.6>. Thunder II! Just used it."
