# 1 Good Xbox 360 controller keybinds
03-29-2010, 08:38 AM
For anyone interested, this is a good setup for xbox 360 button bindings for an admiral level ship. The basic idea is that the triggers, bumpers and joysticks act as a shift key for all the powers. The trays are organized so that across each one, the powers are in order A,B,X,Y,D-up,D-down,D-left,D-right.

I doubled up my right trigger to fire all weapons and engage the power to weapons ability. You might want to do the same for some frequently used shield powers. If you can make use of this, enjoy.

Save this into a text file, I called it space360.txt in the star trek online \ live directory, and load it with the console command /bind_load_file space360.txt:

Joy1 "InteractWindow"
Joy2 "ClearTargetOrBringUpMenu"

Joy5 "ScanForClickies"
Joy6 "Target_Enemy_Next"

Joy7+Ab "+TrayExecByTray 9 0"
Joy7+Bb "+TrayExecByTray 9 1"
Joy7+Xb "+TrayExecByTray 9 2"
Joy7+Yb "+TrayExecByTray 9 3"
Joy7+Joypad_up "+TrayExecByTray 9 4"
Joy7+Joypad_down "+TrayExecByTray 9 5"
Joy7+Joypad_left "+TrayExecByTray 9 6"
Joy7+Joypad_right "+TrayExecByTray 9 7"
Joy7 "+Power_Exec Distribute_Shields"
Joy7+Joy8 "+TrayExecByTray 9 9"

Joy8+Ab "+TrayExecByTray 8 0"
Joy8+Bb "+TrayExecByTray 8 1"
Joy8+Xb "+TrayExecByTray 8 2"
Joy8+Yb "+TrayExecByTray 8 3"
Joy8+Joypad_up "+TrayExecByTray 8 4"
Joy8+Joypad_down "+TrayExecByTray 8 5"
Joy8+Joypad_left "+TrayExecByTray 8 6"
Joy8+Joypad_right "+TrayExecByTray 8 7"
Joy8 "GenSendMessage HUD_Root FireAll $$ +TrayExecByTray 8 8"

Joy3+Ab "+TrayExecByTray 7 0"
Joy3+Bb "+TrayExecByTray 7 1"
Joy3+Xb "+TrayExecByTray 7 2"
Joy3+Yb "+TrayExecByTray 7 3"
Joy3+Joypad_up "+TrayExecByTray 7 4"
Joy3+Joypad_down "+TrayExecByTray 7 5"
Joy3+Joypad_left "+TrayExecByTray 7 6"
Joy3+Joypad_right "+TrayExecByTray 7 7"
Joy3 "+TrayExecByTray 7 8"
Joy3+Joy4 "+TrayExecByTray 7 3"

Joy4+Ab "+TrayExecByTray 6 0"
Joy4+Bb "+TrayExecByTray 6 1"
Joy4+Xb "+TrayExecByTray 6 2"
Joy4+Yb "+TrayExecByTray 6 3"
Joy4+Joypad_up "+TrayExecByTray 6 4"
Joy4+Joypad_down "+TrayExecByTray 6 5"
Joy4+Joypad_left "+TrayExecByTray 6 6"
Joy4+Joypad_right "+TrayExecByTray 6 7"
Joy4 "+TrayExecByTray 6 8"

Ab "ExecuteAction 1"
Bb "+TrayExecByTray 3 1"
Xb "+TrayExecByTray 3 2"
Yb "GenSendMessage Throttle_fullimpulse_button fullthrottle"

Joypad_Up "ThrottleAdjust .25"
Joypad_Down "ThrottleAdjust -.25"
Joypad_Left "genbuttonclick powerlevel_preset_0"
Joypad_Right "genbuttonclick powerlevel_preset_1"

I will probably never understand why so many would want to play STO with a joystick or controller. I've not seen that type of desire with any other MMO I've played, but here I usually see one mention in zone chat a day about it for some reason.

If STO were any kind of true piloting simulation I could perhaps understand it a bit more maybe I guess.

I fully support & endorse using the xbox360 controller for this game - makes it about a million times more fun.

having a 360 Pad i appriciate the work
but...

1. how is your config set up? (autofire, targeting lock etc. anything special there or default? screens!)
2. is your profile only for space or is this ground AND space?
3. where do you have your skills in the tray? (screenshots?)
4. what does which button exactly do on the pad, sorry but i dont speak sourcecode ^^
(maybe a little picture with the layout? like this: http://www.telefragged.com/thefatal/...doc/360def.jpg ? )

5. if i dont like your setup after all, how do i get back to my old one (which is not the "default" one) ^^ ?

Free look camera.. otherwise however you want it. I cycle thru enemies on my own so I have it set to target off-screen enemies and no autolocks.

2. is your profile only for space or is this ground AND space?

Space = space.

3. where do you have your skills in the tray? (screenshots?)

I used Right trigger for offensive powers, like tachyon beams etc, left was for more defensive / buffs. Thumbstick powers for shield abilities, etc.

4. what does which button exactly do on the pad, sorry but i dont speak sourcecode ^^
(maybe a little picture with the layout? like this: http://www.telefragged.com/thefatal/...doc/360def.jpg ? )

Maybe this thread isn't for you.

5. if i dont like your setup after all, how do i get back to my old one (which is not the "default" one) ^^ ?

"/bind_save_file backup.txt" before you try this out, then "/bind_load_file backup.txt" to reload your old setup

Here are my ground keybindings:

Joy1 "InteractWindow"
Joy2 "ClearTargetOrBringUpMenu"

Joy3 "+Aim"
Joy4 "+TrayExecByTray 0 3"
Joy5 "ScanForClickies"
Joy6 "Target_Enemy_Next"
Joy7 "+TrayExecByTray 0 0"
Joy8 "+TrayExecByTray 0 1"

Joy7+Joy8 "+TrayExecByTray 0 2"

Ab "ExecuteAction 1"
Bb "+TrayExecByTray 0 5"
Xb "+TrayExecByTray 0 4"
Yb "++Run"

Joypad_Up "GenSendMessage Inventory_Root SwitchActiveWeapon"
Joypad_Down "+TrayExecByTray 1 7"
Joypad_Left "+TrayExecByTray 1 8"
Joypad_Right "+TrayExecByTray 1 9"

Joy7+Ab "+TrayExecByTray 1 6"
Joy7+Joy4 "+TrayExecByTray 0 6"
Joy8+Xb "PetCommands_SetAllToOwnerAttackTarget"

I can't map the tray powers to what you may have because it depends on your class / kit setup, but this should be pretty clear to anyone who has a rudimentary understanding of counting numbers.
