I just found out about the macros to play music and decided to try it, It was confusing at first, but as long as it’s only for Music playing it’s okay right? what if ArenaNet made some kind of system that let you put instrument songs in the game and auto play it from the instrument? I don’t know, Oh and I was at the fire elemental boss and before it started I tried to play a song, but forgot to take my instrument out and my character attacked and he killed a random monster….. I could have easily killed it on my own but….. can I get in trouble for this?
slightly related: caerphoto suggested on the GW2 subreddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/2nctvb/now_that_arenanet_has_given_the_ok_to_macros_for/cmdg1e6) that people who use macros for the musical instruments have an icon over their head, kind of like you do with the frame drum if you use the premade loops. how do people feel about this? I personally think it’s a great idea and diplomatic solution to the macro/anti-macro argument.
I don’t know if it’s possible to do something like that in real time though

This is not possible, the system has always to check which programs are running on your computer and it is not diplomatic.
Even tough i don’t know why people are upset about players with “macros” but we had this kind of discussion in another thread.
maybe you’re just misunderstanding the word, but what makes you say it isn’t diplomatic? it seems to me that – if it were possible, which I’m guessing it isn’t – it would finally kill the discussion. seems to me that would be beneficial to everyone
let’s not start discussing why people are for/against macros. it’ll just end with mudslinging again
