Disclaimer: This is probably expected behavior, and this post is more of a "heads up" on the issue

I set up a macro to GM the Tracking skill. Really basic, click tracking, choose humanoid, insert pause, loop

I noticed that after a while this character was getting disconnected, but I was playing on two (sometimes three) clients at once, and this one was the only one that was getting disconnected. I thought I found a bug, but what I think was happening was that I was reaching some kind of upper limit on the number of gumps that could be open. I checked on this character after a while, but before it got disconnected and there were so many Tracking gumps open that I eventually gave up on closing them and logged out.

Probably more a flaw in my macro than a bug, but thought it was worth mentioning.

I vaguely remember this happening to me years ago. It has to do with the gumps. If I recall correctly, adding a close all gumps line to the macro and changing all Wait for lines to timeout in 15 seconds fixed it.

Thanks guys.

I was 99.9% sure I was missing something simple in the macro, but wanted to put it out there so others wouldn't run into it too.
