This plugin provides a Heads Up Display for your EQ window, which can provide a large amount of information in a relatively small amount of space. The HUD acts as a transparent background layer, upon which any information can be displayed. Each element of the HUD gets parsed each time MQ2Data is displayed, so there is no need to reload the HUD after making changes to the .ini file, they are instantly available as soon as you save.

The HUD is customized by entries in the MQ2HUD.ini file. The .ini file allows any number of HUDs to be created and saved within. Loading a new HUD from the .ini file can be done with /loadhud. The entry names are not case-sensitive.

The default HUD entry is called and can be loaded with the /defaulthud command.

You can toggle the display of the HUD by using F11.

INI File Format

Entries in the MQ2HUD.ini file are in the following format:


  • TYPE can be a combination of the following \(just add the numbers\):
  • 1: Display in non-fullscreen mode
  • 2: Display in fullscreen mode \("F10 mode"\)
  • 4: Based on cursor location
  • 8: Display at charselect
  • 16: Only parse if a macro IS running
  • X and Y denote the location of the entry on the screen \(0,0 is the upper left of your screen\)
  • RED, GREEN and BLUE are RGB values for the TEXT color \(255,255,255 is white; 0,0,0 is black\)
  • TEXT is the MQ2Data you wish to display. As a tip, the If TLO is very useful here.


ClickMeForFun=6,-25,-25,255,255,255,${If[!${Cursor.ID},click me,]}
MacroName=19,5,70,255,255,255,${If[${Bool[${Macro}]}, Current Macro Running - ${Macro},]}

In the above HUD, the CursorItemName entry states that it will show the name of your cursor item in all modes. Using 6 as the TYPE will display the cursor in full-screen mode only.
