While in shooter mode, chatting is not possible.

Normal shooters solve this problem by having an escape key, like T for CHAT.

This way it's possible to switch to chat functionality.

In this game, that is missing... and it's fokking annoying.

First I have to switch out of shooter made back to rpg mode... and then click the chat window....

MY SUGGESTION IS:

A chat key which automatically switches to the chat window !

When pressing enter or maybe clicking a button on the chat window... it leaves the chat window and returns back to shooter mode.

Almost no one uses shooter mode.

but I believe you can keybind out of it

Its not missing. If you spent less time spewing vitriol on the forums you might have found it.

You mean like when you press "enter" and it goes straight to the chat box??

Enter is a bad choice for a chat key.

If ALT is held down... it will trigger "window mode" usually... it's like alt-tab.

I am not sure if Startrek needs alt to be held down.

I am used to Company of Heroes method of rotation by holding down alt key.

It's a bit more easy to rotate like that then holding down right mouse button for obvious reasons... it puts stress/inaccuracy on the mouse movement.

It doesn't solve the problem.

So let me ask you a question:

How do I return from the chat window back to shooter mode ?! As fast as possible ?!?

Without accidently killing something or whatever ?!?! (or getting killed for that matter)

I know the answer sux, cause when I tested it, I didn't like the way it functioned, I can't even remember and I don't even want to remember that horror experience.

Here is a hint though: it required a lot of key presses and mouse presses/twichting behehehehe.

Fortunately this is not cod or bf3 where every millisecond counts but ok... it's still annoying... you might still die against the allmighty borg fokking you up your a ss while you try to get back into baby-popper-shooter mode.

Click Enter. Shooter mode hinders chat only by the ability to switch between chat modes.
And stop swearing! t's only cool on DS9!

Click enter is to enter chat ?

Question is how to exit chat and get shooter controls back ?!

See the difference ?
