Wrote a little oRA2 plugin that will auto set the loot method when you form a raid. I did this mostly for myself, because I was tired of forgetting to change the loot settings before we started pulling. It currently justs remembers what you last set the loot to through the oRA2 -> Loot Method menu. Master looter is set to yourself and threshold is not changed.
If Ammo or another kind oRA2 developer would consider just adding this into oRA2 and fleshing it out, that would be great. This should probably be a sub menu of Leader Invite.
If you want to add it to your copy of oRA2 don't forget to add "LootMethod.lua" to the Leader.toc and "Leader\LootMethod.lua" to the oRA2.toc. File is attached.
Huh, not sure why there is two of the same file attached to my first post. Probably from me pushing preview then thinking I needed to attach the file again after previewing. Those two should be the same thing.

good idea but, you should work with bigwigs rather than ora2.
My raid use master loot only on bosses, so i guess it's easier to work with bg.
When you first form the raid, do you change the loot from group loot? That's all this tries to do.

This has no place in BigWigs.
I'll add it to oRA2.
Yay! Thanks Ammo. Really appreciate it. I stuck a request in the oRA2 thread awhile back about this and made a messy attempt to add it myself back then. Just couldn't figure it out at the time. Finally had a chance to sit down yesterday on my day off and make it work.
You wouldn't believe how tired I am of people thinking they are cute when they push Greed on Naxx Scraps because I once AGAIN forgot to set the loot before we pulled. This will make me look less stupid and that's always a good thing. Thanks again.

ok but in fact I was thinking of something like ClosetGnome_Bigwigs wich change your stuff for the boss in target.
but if it works with oRA2 for boss, it s fine for me :)
You could write a BigWigs plugin to do this! You'd definitely want it as a separate optional addon, though. For example, my guild has had so many problems with Master Looter over the year+ we've been raiding that we only use Free for all now.
