Hot Keys

Post by Arctic on Mon Jun 11, 2012 9:25 pm

So i just met you...and this is crazy...but i play this a lot...so suggestion, maybe?

Hot Keys...most if not all players know this term. So i wont bother explaining what they are, but rather how they can be used. Why not map certain actions to certain keys? Like keys that arent normally used during WoB? Like the arrow keys, for instance, to move in different directions on the map? Or the number pad on the keyboard (Not the numbers above the QWERTY line) mapped for specific actions, like doing patrols? So instead of -click, click, click- You could press 1 repeatedly and finish patrols, 2 could bring you to the training page, 3 could put you in social, and so forth. Not sure if this is difficult to do, but just a thought. o-o

Except some people only have the numbers above the QWERTY
a laptop doesn't havea number pad

Coding difficulties, I'd bet.

I see what you are saying about the Num Pad...but from a coding standpoint, it Shouldnt be that difficult, from my understanding anyway. Each page has an I.D., and therefore the button press could be directly linked to that page. So for patrols, instead of going to patrol and clicking the patrol button, it would link to the page where the said link would have already been clicked, and you could press that 6-7 times. Or for a training, map 10 min AP to a number, and you would just press the button, and it would start a Training. But typing this...i am starting to see an issue that lsm would have to answer personally...not coding wise though.

I can see how this could cause problems with accidental pressing of buttons. And maybe botting issues?

Lots of frustration for users. And would take time to get used to.

Laptops usually have an FN key and buttons on the keyboard linked to what would be a number pad Nao.

I guess my laptop isn't an usual laptop... Fn key, yes. Works as numpad? No, not really.

Reminds me of the WoW mice hardcore players use.

i do use bookmarks sometimes then just delete it cuz it takes up space o_o
but F5 is also helpful in doing patrols and other things~

not that i mind hotkeys, perhaps its nice for traveling options on the map, clicking the arrows and your character travels automatically o_o
