Basic Core provides a simple, standard feature set for multiboxing with Joe Multiboxer, including...
- Launch Profiles that identify a game to launch, and Virtual Files for the game, and a simple Launch button
- Performance and FPS settings to optimize performance across your game windows
- Highlighting options help identify game windows, including highlighting the active window when swapping is disabled
- Window Layouts either dynamically place your windows in a standard lineup, or use your own custom layout
- Window Switching Hotkeys to easily rotate between windows, or pull up specific windows
Installing Basic Core
The simplest way to install and get started with Basic Core is via Joe Multiboxer's Agent Suggestions window, which pops up when you launch Joe Multiboxer, if no Agents are installed.
The Basic Core version number will be shown in the title of the Basic Core window, found in the main JMB window. If a newer version of Basic Core is ready for download, an
Install Latest Basic Core! button will be shown at the top of the window.
Your first time launching
Basic Core is simple to configure, and includes default settings. The easiest way to get started is simply to use
Add Game from Joe Multiboxer's right-click menu, which adds your game to JMB, and will then automatically show up as a
Launch Profile in Basic Core.
From there, the
Launcher tab in the Basic Core window (found in the main JMB window) can be used to select a Launch Profile, and click the
Launching Game Clients
When launching game clients, Joe Multiboxer supports rapid launching. The
Launch! button may be clicked many times in rapid succession to simultaneously launch multiple game clients. This is in contrast to ISBoxer, which requires a slower paced launch.
Launching Game Launchers
When launching a game launcher, as opposed to launching a game client directly, you will want to use the launcher to launch the game, and then exit the launcher. You may click
Launch! again once the previous game launcher has exited, to launch the next JMB window.
Tip: Each process launched by the
Launch!button is placed in its own partially sandboxed
Slotalong with any processes it, in turn, launches. This means that an instance of a Game Launcher launched by JMB should not be used to launch more than one character.
Note: Some games require the launcher to stay open (such as many Steam games); in these cases, the game launcher itself must allow multiple instances. Otherwise, additional work will be needed to sandbox the launcher for the Slot.
Your first gameplay
With the default settings, your first gameplay with more than one window will use a horizontal Window Layout style, with swapping occurring when clicking or activating a window via hotkey. Rotate forward through game windows with
Ctrl+Alt+X or backward with
Ctrl+Alt+Z. Each window can be called up individually by
Ctrl+Alt+2 and so on, depending on the window number.
