    help with weapon picker

    Hi guys,

    I've been playing console games for 30 years and while I use a Logitech M570 for aiming, I need to use a controller for movement.

    I tried installing this dude's mod to get the weapon picker from the console versions working and ran into trouble. I posted a comment on the mod page, but the developer isn't responding:

    Can anyone help point me in the direction of getting the weapon picker working? Thanks.

    I goofed, need to bind this directly in UTInput.ini. Here is how us KBM folks may handle it, to quote a RattleSn4k3 post on another forum. I have verified this works with latest patch, I am not using foxmod at present, however:

    Bindings=(Name="LeftShift",Command="gba_weaponpick er",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False)
    Bindings=(Name="MouseX",Command="QuickPickMouse_X" ,Control=False,Shift=True,Alt=False)
    Bindings=(Name="MouseY",Command="QuickPickMouse_Y" ,Control=False,Shift=True,Alt=False)
    Bindings=(Name="QuickPickMouse_X",Command="Axis aTurn Speed=0.003 DeadZone=0.9",Control=False,Shift=True,Alt=False)
    Bindings=(Name="QuickPickMouse_Y",Command="Axis aLookUp Speed=-0.003 DeadZone=0.9",Control=False,Shift=True,Alt=False)

    You should only need to add the first line to your UTInput.ini under the [UTGame.UTPlayerInput], and additional headings by custom gametypes such as BTA. Your gamepad axes should already have binds to aturn and alookup. If they do not, or you need to bind a different joy, then you need to replace mousex,mousey with your gamepad's joy#x, joy#y and add the rest. (I am not sure the point of the middle two lines, and not binding directly, but this is a working bind.)



      The two lines are having the Shift flag set to true. "QuickPickMouse_X" and "QuickPickMouse_Y" are only executed holding the shift key. The snippet is adding all necessary bindings. You don't need to replace anything in order to get it work, generally.

      How to use it:
      Hold shift, move the mouse in any of the the 8 cardinal directions (N, S, W, E, NW, NE, SW, SE) and release shift. You will switch your weapon to the selected weapon afterwads.

      PS: Thanks for mentioning me
      PPS: foxMod is updated after you we're asking for help.


        Thanks friend,

        I'll have to look into this in the coming days.
