Custom Binds! Post 'em here.

This came up in another thread. This alias will take a picture of your screen without your hud or log (which will come back 1 second after the picture, which will probably be before your screen refreshes since dumps take cpu time).

/alias ccam "hudtoggle; hidelog; dump; wait 1 'hudtoggle; hidelog'"

Mostly cause I like bumps to this thread that actually have a point greater than bumping.

It's SO good that I'm saving it for posterity...and this thread has gone off topic.

This has been discussed in game, but I always miss it somehow. Is there a bind for toggling between the mission and general tab in flight mode?
Aug 09, 2004 silentsuicide link
alias tab1 'activatechattab 0'
alias tab2 'activatechattab 1'
bind key tab1
bind key tab2

or you can set the button in options, controls, at the very bottom.

Change HUD Size:

(Ray said:)

Here is a way to change the size of the HUD.

set rHUDxscale 1024
set rHUDyscale 768

will make the HUD small.
It is default to 640x480.
Setting it to the same as your game resolution will make it line up pixel-for-pixel.

That's awesome. Good find!

>or you can set the button in options, controls, at the very bottom.

Or you can make a toggle, and save keyboard space.

alias chattab1 "activatechattab 1; alias chattabtog 'chattab0'"
alias chattab0 "activatechattab 0; alias chattabtog 'chattab1'"
alias chattabtog "chattab1"
bind key chattabtog

Re: HUD scale....

800x600 seems to give the best balance between playability and visability. With 1024x768 the HUD is REALLY small and chat is very hard to read.

aint too bad.

I can't read the radar at 1024x768 properly.

Aug 31, 2004 Durgia link
you should be able to make that screen size thing better with a /prompt. Then you could just bring up the input box and input what you want.

Might not work but its worth a try.

alias hudrescale "hudx; wait 10 'hudy'" *
alias hudx "prompt '/set rHUDxscale'"
alias hudy "prompt '/set rHUDyscale'"
bind "key" hudrescale

*I don't know whether you need to set a delay or not.

I suggest doing the first line like this first to see if not:
alias hudrescale "hudx; hudy"
Sep 03, 2004 Eldrad link
"hudx; hudy" would only exicute hudy, unfortunately. Also if you take less than 10 seconds to enter the prompt it'll cause problems.
Sep 04, 2004 Celkan link
Then make it a sufficient amount of time... say 30 seconds?

Gentlemen, BEHOLD! I give you... A jukebox!

As you might have guessed, this mess lets you play any music in the game (last I checked). Nothing too fancy, just binds < and > to scroll through the available musics. The names are plucked out of my imagination- change them as you see fit. I suppose that a1k0n would have the final say on most names should the almighty deem these choices unworthy, and you can always just remove the echo commands if you want to jam blind.
