Well, I would have figuered that myself. But on ground, BO abilities are not accessible via the action bars. Even if you switch to 3 row display, they'll still be shown next to the Boff's icon in the group frame. And that's why I thought it wouldn't be possible at all.

Serious need of help here.

I've somehow managed to turn the "Reset to defaults" button to default to my space keybinds....this includes while on the ground.

unbinding each key individually works, using the reset to defaults button just gives me my keybinds, unbind_all gives me my keybinds (rather than the real defaults), etc

solution to getting it to reset to the real defaults? It's doing my head in :\

-edit- nm
Just deleted all the txt files (aka my bind files) in the main folder and restarted the game and all gone

Don't want to be pushy, just need clarification.

Thx in advance.

M4triX, I've dug as far as I can to find some way to do what you want, but there is no method to allow you to control your BO abilities on the ground. The only control you have is to active initiate the turrets by clicking on the appropriate icon next to the BO.

if you are using a bind file.

"C" is the command to chat, "ZONE" specifies which channel you want, and the rest is the message. My usage of this is in a command like:

Y "c Team Focus fire on >>$Target<<"
This command directs members of my team to focus on my target.

the $Target line prints the name of your current target in the message so might look something like
"Team Focus fire on >>Faithborn<<"

Another one I have although I rarely use is
H "c team I need a heal!!"

If you wanted you could script a running commentary for everything you do.
"Trogdor fires on Faithborn"
"Trogdor looses a volley of torpedos in your chops"
"Trogdor evasives outta sight!"
"Trgodor uses Hazard emitters on squishy escort"
"Pow right in the kisser"

etc... Though that might be a bit excessive aye?

On a related note, I am trying to bind the line /PvPreport to a key, but when I use it, it literally just prints "/PvPreport" with a space at the front, preventing it from working as a command. Any ideas people?
As i write this, I am also wondering if there is a difference between upper and lower case? I am not at my machine (At work right now) so I don't know off the top of my head.

With the exception of the use of "c" that is correct. Well, maybe it works, but the correct syntax you want is:

/bind <key> <channel> [phrase] (through the chat window) -or-

<key> <channel> [phrase] (if you manipulate your bind file directly)

Ex:

/bind F5 Team Make your target: $target. -or-

a Team Make your target: $target. (taken directly from my bind file)

I do exactly this to change things up while I'm call out targets in PuGs. I do like the idea of giving a running commentary during battle. Fire off a B0v and it says in zone: "Here's a beam overload for you. Bam! Zoom! Straight to the moon." (Bwahahahahaha, 'bout fell out of my chair when I thought of that.) However, it'd probably get old for everyone else pretty quick. You want to put a line like this in your keybind file:

a Team Make your target: $target. $$ bind_load_file target1.txt

This binds the A-key to put the phrase "Make your target: $Target" in the Team chat channel. The "bind_load_file" instructs the system to load the file "target1.txt"

I have five variations on the phrase. Each "target#.txt" calls the next file in the sequence. In this case ...

Target1.txt file contains:

a team Ensign, set phasers to cowboy diplomacy and target $target $$ bind_load_file target2.txt

Target2.txt contains:

a team Now, I don't like $target. Dispense with them. $$ bind_load_file target3.txt

rinse and repeat as many times as you like and make your last Target#.txt file read:

<key> team [phrase] $$ bind_load_file <keybind file name>

No. There is no difference between Capitalization and non-capitalization when binding. I use the commands the way they are programmed because I'm OCD like that. Using the above

a team <phrase> = A Team <phrase>

TrayExecByTray = trayexecbytray

Faithborn, Apologies for overlooking your inquiry.

C works fine for me. I actually thought it was necessary. Live and learn!

Yea I'd imagine it would get quite tiresome Lol, but that carries with it its own kind of fun. As long as you didn't do it all the time, it could be rather funny. Could use it to roleplay. Take on the guise of Zapp Brannigan.

Cheers I will give that a go when I get home today.

Thanks, nice to know. I make a habit of keeping to "correct" the case as shown on the keybinds list when you mouseover too. A hangover from doing I.T support i guess!

you don't need the c there pretty sure you can reduce the Team to just T aswell (since you can use Group, Party instead of Team and g or p instead of Group and Party to talk just to people you're teamed with...edit actually t is just short for tell)

(I should read all posts before I start replying the c bit was already gotten too but the other bits are still applicable, I just use p because instead of Team/Party/etc I also just use e instead of emote for binding emotes)
