Now that I have your attention, First I want to explain something:
I hate that Raven is killing the ability to use sabers as an attack weapon for competition CTF maps. There is littleraly no point in using it at all except as a defensive shield to some weapons. But there is no one saber attack that you can use in any kind of consistent form in a highly entense game of CTF. To see what I mean you can always look at the forums at TWL (www.teamwarfare.com
). So far we have all decided that its no longer a weapon that can be used. THis is sad as the only reason I play JO is because of "Force Powers" and "Sabers". So now they take away our sabers we only have force powers left or its just another quake/unreal game!!
The solution is there.. Take it out of "raven"'s hands ands rely on a more community sponsered mod. So far the one that seems to fix these problems is JK2++ mod being developed by WD clan at http://forums.wdonline.com/
My goal here is to get as many clan leader interested in this mod as possible. God knows, we need to fix this problem ourselves! Raven appears to only be catering to the noob part of the community and not the competition part.
Ok now for the key bind: The real reason you are reading this!
I released this information yesterday on TWL's forums. So I am here now to relase it here. Let me know what you think!
Also am I the first to discover this? I searched and could not find this information so I ended up "hacking" at JK2 console and figured this out myself!
Ok guys.. Being a programmer and all I figure there was a way to do this. And there is! Plus it gives and added bonus of "conserving" keys too! (Since I am almost out keys to bind as it is!).
I have not figure out how to make this all 1 key stroke I tired but it appears to be 2 keys. 1 to load your force config/key binds and 1 to suicide for the changes to take affect.
Ok guys I was too curious if this was possible so I am giving this information out for the community. So enjoy! And I hope some of you may release some very coo info too!
Must bind the keys you want first! (MUST MUST DO THIS FIRST)
I use [ for light
and ] for dark
and \ for suicide
Use the follwing commands:
bind \ kill
bind [ "exec light.cfg;forcechanged"
bind ] "exec dark.cfg;forcechanged"
(I tried this:
bind [ "exec light.cfg;forcechanged;wait;kill" but that didnt seem to work.) So if anyone of you know how to get suicide after the force is put in on the same key let me know!
Anyways two keys are not bad. Just hit your force then suicide.
Now.. the 2nd step:
Create your config files.
Simple just apply your favotite light powers and key settings. Totally remove all dark keys from your config as you dont need dark forces during light "mode". This gives you more keys to play with.
Type the following command in console:
Then go in and config your dark powers and then bind the dark force powers over the light force powers!
Now you have 2 configs for light and dark. YOu can create more of course!!!
