View Full Version : Homeworld 2: Totally customizable keyboard.....possible via programing?
25th Sep 03, 2:08 AM
To any programers out there, how hard would it be to make the keyboard totally customizable for homeworld 2? Like for instance if I wanted to be able to have more then 10 control groups. I posted something similar yesterday, but nobody really answered my question. The one thing i'd like to be able to do is Hotkey the Capital Class Facilities so I can easily access which ship I wanted to build something with one push of the button. I know you can do this already by using the existing 10 control group buttons (1-10) but that seems like a waste to have to use those. Are there any existing programs out there that can make this possible or could it be done easily via programing?

I'm not sure as to your question, but when you want to access a particular build facility, the Queue view (shortcut button: q) is incredibly useful.
I don't know how I played MP without it.

An example of what i'd like to do personally:
F1-F8 Control Groups for Capital Class Facilities.....
So, just like the 1-10 buttons, you click on your mothership then you hit ctrl+F1 to save it to that key. That way if you had the above 4 ships, you could have one for fighters, one for frigates, one for corvettes and one for Battle Cruisers or Destroyers ect....
Everything else can pretty much be changed already, but the lack of additional control groups makes it hard to build what you want without clicking over and over.

Yes, it´s those two: b to open and cycle trough your prod ships and clicking on the "q" bars to acces the ship.
Also, you can move your focus to the current prod ship by clicking on the ships image in the top right corner of the prod overlay.
What I really would like to see is differing names (even if it´s only carrier1-4) for your carriers, so you know at a glance where you are. But one can manage without.

I'm fully aware that you can use the Q and B buttons do do this operation. I just don't like having to go through all the ships, including the BC's to find which one I want. Thus, why I wanted to know if it was possible to program more control groups. I wish everybody wouldn't assume that I was a moron. I'm just asking how hard it would be to add additional control group hotkeys.

i think addinf more control groups aint possible. relic has certainly fixed the storage array for those groups to 10.
so u cannot enlarge it without changing the basic code
but i might be wrong. letz wait for the lua function documentation for hw2
