Ledge climbing button please!

With the latest changes made to OJP, one of the few main things thats bugging me is ledge climbing. Some areas are actually impossible to access because you automatically climb ledges that you don't want to

What would be nice: having a button that lets you climb ledges when you hold it down, and having the "ledge climb" animation being played to let you know it's actually being held down

How about "use"?

Would binding it to the use button cause a conflict with the jetpack? Maybe we could make it so you have to be moving in a direction to attempt to ledge grab?

Still not good enough, me thinks. Could still lead to a lot of deaths as a result of users trying to get out of a sticky situation and accidentally ledge grabbing

The "use" button would work. Jetpack is started with jump in midair. Its only stopped by use.

Like say, a player wants to jump up a wall, which has a few split midsections. The game (and said player) could mistake the midsections for ledges

If we made it so the player wouldn't ledge grab if the player isn't pressing a direction, wouldn't that resolve that problem?

But the better solution me thinks would be to have a separate button for ledge grab =p

I disagree. It would be adding yet another button to be able to fully use OJP's basic features. My keyboard is full as is.

yeah that might work.. though it might be a little hard to do and frustrating at times since if your only a foot from the ledge and you cant press forward to catch it... I'm not sure :/...I'm still thinking pressing use might be the best option, but maybe we can try both and see what works better wonce darth gets his computer back.

I'm confused, why would that be confusing? All they would have to do is press forward to grab the ledge.

Besides, I think it would be less confusing than asking newbies to assign another button for the ledge grabs. Imagine all the "how do I ledge grab?" question that will
pop up.

And I'm still worried that the use button would conflict with good use of the jetpack.

Why was "touching the ground turns off the jetpack" removed?

Wait, press forward to grab? Ok I misunderstood. Well That might work. We still might have some issues with low grabs or walking under low platforms, but few maps have stuff like that (though I did just play a player made map where I couldnt get through an entryway without crouching because I kept going into ledgegrab ) Anyways, I guess we'll try that and only change it if theres trouble and complaints.

strange. I thought I set it up so you had to be in midair to be able to do a ledgegrab. Bug ticket?
