If you're a server admin, a player on a server with lots of plugins, or just love automating every aspect of your minecraft experience, you will honestly wonder how you lived without this mod...
Note: if you're looking for LiteLoader it now has its own shiny new thread!
- Easy to use GUI. Just activate the mod then just press the key you want to bind. No need to memorize key codes or names!
- Bind keys which are already used for something else! Want to put a macro on the number keys, mouse buttons or WASD? Using the override function you can use these keys for both their normal function or as macros when you need them.
- Edit keybinds quickly. Change your binds whenever you want. You can even copy and move macros from key to key with drag 'n drop.
- Multiple configurations. Different binds in different servers? No problem! It even switches automatically.
- In-game text editor. Want to make a complex macro? No need to alt-tab to notepad, create and edit text files inside minecraft.
- Lots of easy-to-use parameters. Lists of friends, automatic responses, warp points, towns, you name it.
- Scripting! Build custom auto-announcers, time-delay messages, or create your own auto-walk, toggleable-sneak or sprint keys.
- Custom GUIs! Create your own custom GUI and hook up your macros for instant in-game menus
- Permissions System Server admins can lock down chosen features of the mod using the easy-to-setup Client Permissions plugin, allowing seamless integration with the server's existing rank system.
- Install LiteLoader
- Download the .litemod file for your version of minecraft here and save it into your "mods" folder (create the "mods" folder if it does not already exist) NOTE: Some browsers will change the file extension to .zip when downloading, if this happens be sure to change it back to .litemod or LiteLoader will not find the mod!
- Run the Minecraft client
- Check the Controls screen in the Minecraft configuration to make sure there are no conflicts with other keys you use. This mod adds pages to the Controls screen for enhanced configuration of any mods which add custom keys
This update will break things! Yes, ID's are going for good in 1.8 and so in preparation for that everything in the mod which previously used numeric IDs now uses the new identifiers. This means you need to change any scripts which use IDs to use identifiers.. See the changelog for the convenience functions. These commands will only be available during 1.7 and will be removed in 1.8, so use them to update your scripts but don't rely on them. You have been warned!

To bind keys:
- In-game, simply press [SNEAK KEY]+GRAVE (change the key in the options if this doesn't work for you) and you will be prompted to press a key.
- Press the key you would like to bind or click it on the on-screen keyboard
- Enter the chat command (including the / at the start), separate multiple commands with pipe "|"
- Press ENTER to save the keybind, press ESC to cancel it. To edit a keybind repeat the same process.
- If the key doesn't have any other function (eg. it is not bound to any other built-in command or function) then just press the key
- If the key is bound to another function (such as the WASD keys or T,I etc) press your [MACRO ACTIVATE] key (as you set in the options) followed by the key.
- Alternatively if the key is bound to another function press [MACRO OVERRIDE]+[KEY] (again, you can set this in the Controls screen)
You can find out a lot of useful information about the mod via my tutorials on YouTube.
To get started using the mod, you can find an list of commands and keycodes and guide to the other features in the mod in the readme.txt

- All mod configuration information is stored in a folder macros inside your minecraft mods folder, you can save and restore this folder if you want to copy your macros to another computer
- This mod shouldn't create conflicts with other mods using modloader or forge, but to be certain it is worth avoiding binding keys used by other mods. If in doubt delete the .macros.txt file and ensure other mods run as normal.
