Cam, when you're using mouse look your camera moves separately from your ship, the rolling is set up to rotate the camera slower than the speed the slowest ship rolls so that you don't get ahead of your ship. The rotation aliases allow you to rotate the camera faster, but don't effect how fast the ship rolls. To get your camera to turn faster increase the mouse sensitivity.

I was actually hoping to make the ship turn slower
and since a joystick can do different speeds i was wondering if there is a way to program a ship to turn at a slower rate when using a keyboard

any ideas?
Feb 23, 2004 Eldrad link
Well that you can do.
You would want to make a similar set of aliases to the rotation ones... but just using +TurnUp -1000to1000, etc. For example +TurnUp 500 would start turing up at half speed.

the real alternate fire... TESTED... WORKS...

to alternate 3 weapons:
alias -alternatefire "+shoot1 0;+shoot2 0;+shoot3 0"
alias +alternatefire "wait 2 '+shoot1';wait 1 '+shoot2';+shoot3"
bind MMBUTTON +alternatefire

to alternate 2 weapons:
alias -alternatefire "+shoot1 0;+shoot2 0"
alias +alternatefire "wait 1 '+shoot1';+shoot2"
bind MMBUTTON +alternatefire

the only caveot is.. the weapons you choose to alternate...
the "repeat" time is very important...
weapons with a .15 repeat time alternate very well...
but drains your battery very fast...

play with diffrent weapons and the wait times in the alias's

.2 repeat with wait 1 and wait 3

whatever works for you...
Feb 28, 2004 Morbidly Wrong link
also you have to set one weapon per fire group...


alias +alternatefire "wait 2 '+shoot1';wait 1 '+shoot2';+shoot3"

primary fire - S Right - falchute
secondary fire - S Left - falchute
trinary fire - S Rear - falchute

this is cool.. machine gun!!

Well, MW, you could press F1 for help but then you'd have to "ask" for the help! :)

wow this thread is ancient
Apr 15, 2004 Eldrad link
lol, no it's not. Ancient's like the thread about how you can post pictures in the thread title, or the one about "new" bots with a colored title.

Too bad, eh?

Please do not lock this and deny the future pilots of Vendetta from learning this ancient art of binding/aliases.

The following is my c:\program files\guildsoftware\vendetta\wgaf.cfg

i've broken it down into sections to make reading easy... some of these are posted above with my settings... some are my own...

i just recently took a hand at editing this file... it was tough to learn but the "multi log" alias's and bind's helped explain everything easier...

i made some standard commands capital letters to avoid hitting them in the middle of a duel...

Though the threads old it isn't out of date. I still use many of the aliases in here, and they're still good for many new people to know.

What program do OSX users use to edit and save the wgaf.cfg file?
Apr 20, 2004 Eldrad link
I use Emacs, you can also use TextEdit or any other text editor. Both of those two are already on your system though it's the Terminal only version of Emacs.

New command:

alias gaussvalk "wgroup 0 2 3 4; wgroup 2 2; wgroup 5 3 4"
# results weapon group1 fires 3 weapons; weapon group3 fires just the first weapon ('front' on a valk); weapon group6 fires the next two weapons (on a valk the 'right' and 'left')
alias gaussvult "wgroup 0 2 3; wgroup 2 2; wgroup 5 3"

Then when in the station instead of setting up my weapon groups as I like them through the station gui I just type "guassvalk" or "gaussvult" and the weapon groups are set.

1) Only works in the station.
2) the first number is the group 0-6 and corresponds to "Weapon Groups 1-7"
3) the rest of the numbers are the ship's ports 0-1 = engine and bat 2+ = weapons

That is a most excellent trick Eldrad! I love it.

Closest Enemy Scanner

alias scan2 "wait 1 'scan1'; RadarNextNearestEnemy"
alias scanoff "alias scan1 'echo Scanner Off'; bind MMBUTTON scanon"
alias scanon "alias scan1 'RadarNextNearestEnemy; scan2'; echo 'Scanner On'; scan1; bind MMBUTTON scanoff"

bind "MMBUTTON" scanon
