View Full Version : Minor inconvience

Since I installed GWX 3.0 Gold I can't fire my torps using the return
on my keyboard. All the other key cmds work ok.
Any ideas on how to fix this.
Like I said its annoying as I can use the red fire controls on screen using my mouse but makes it hard to hit say under the smokestack.
Funny prob but in saying that
Thanks for all your help in advance

It was changed because 90% of the users complained that they would be doing something else and accidentally hit Return, with predictable results.
I'm not at home, so I can't tell you exactly which line to edit, but someone will be along shortly who can.

I think it's a combo of ctrl\Return or shift\return .

Interesting. I don't even have a return key so never knew. I use a mini keyboard that doesn't have the number pad or return key. I don't see how clicking the red fire button would throw off accuracy though. Unless by using the return key it automatically opened the tube doors at the same time. If that is the case just remember to select the tube and press q, wait 2 seconds and then fire.

Brushing the "return" key would lead to accidental torpedo firings. GWX has changed it to you now have to hit ctrl+return to fire a torpedo.

As said, many people accidentally hit the return key (Heinzmer: it is not only found on the keypad, I think it's just the Enter key) so 'they' changed it to CTRL + ENTER to avoid those misfirings.
Hope that helps.

Thank you all for your help.
I just perfer using the keyboard to fire ( my pref) and using the mouse
to control my point of aim when using the scope and uzo.
Thanks again for your help

Nobody has given you the code yet. It's in Data/Cfg/Commands. I was hesitant because as I said I'm not able to post from my own computer. I'll check tonight and if no one has given you the correct change by tomorrow I'll have it for you. It's actually very easy to do.

On it, Sailor Steve.
From your SH3 folder, go to data\cfg and open up file Commands_en.cfg, you can modify all you keyboard shortcuts there.
If you search for Key0=0x0D, which basically means the return key in some strange computer language, you'll find two commands that are you using that key - Time_compr_normal and Fire_torpedo so if you don't want conflicts, you'll have to modify both and it's easy, just switch the little "c" around so the first one looks like this:
and the second one like this:
What that "c" means is that you have to press CTRL + RETURN to execute that command and without "c", you can fire those eels just like you were used to.

Thanks, Vollinger. As promised I brought it today, but as I have to come to the library to get online of course that takes overnight. I was hoping someone would put it up before that, and you did.

Happy hunting to all
