Starting

Do a /mac entropy\start.mac if it yells at you for not having some plugins started, start them up and try the command again.

When you see something along this line

Entropy::200707.01
Palatial Guild Hall::guildhalllrg_int
Help::/aux or /command aux
Ready::3.35s

You are right as rain.. (your numbers may vary)

new build

New builds and update with database changes will always take a little longer. It is advised you start 1 toon up first, let the changes be made, then start the remaining toons.

A new start looks like so:

Note the delay on the character schema update. This portion will always take the longest.

options

You can start the mac with up to four (4) options.

auto [True/False] allows you to start the mac in auto.. or not..
debug allows you to start the mac with a debug option enabled


Example: /mac entropy\start.mac debug:cast auto:true debug:rez

Order is not important, syntax is.

custom.inc

The custom.inc file is kept complete separate so it will never get overwritten on a DL/update/whatever.
All custom hooks, subs, engine settings will go in this file. What you do in here is your business. There is no support for it.
