List of impulse commands

<div class="IPBDescription">Anybody have one?</div>I was working on a list of impulse commands (which this mod seems to run on), and I was wondering two things:
1) does anybody have one made already? would save me some effort, and
2) if nobody DOES have one, none of the mods/developers would mind me making one, would they? I wouldn't think so, but it seems odd that they would make the commands all cryptic impulses, and then not realease a list. almost like they want people using the interface rather than a set of binds.
Maybe it's just me  <!--emo&:p--><img src="" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':p'><!--endemo-->

    The purpose of the interface was exactly so that the normal player wouldn't need to bind every key on his keyboard to play effectively.  Personally I find it a lot easier to remember that "Need healing" is right click -> down -> left -> left, than that I've bound it to some random, empty key on the opposite side of the keyboard than the one I'm using.
  • Teufel_EldritchTeufel_Eldritch Join Date: 2002-01-28 Member: 124Members is that a "NO" on the impulse command list then? I personally find using binds much easier than using a VGUI. Though I must admit I do like the NS VGUI.

    I think a list of impulses/commands would be fantastic, especially for the radio commands....when you need health you need it now, not click-blah-blah-blah later WHILE your trying to shoot at enemies at the same time

    well, I've finished the default grunt infantry command list, and all of the menu commands are there, I believe. I'm sure the aliens are the same way (though they don't correlate with what they say. For example, I know that impulse 7 is "follow me" for the frontiersmen, and "chuckle" for the aliens.)
    Also, there's a few that don't "do" anything, but don't make the "this doesn't do anything" noise, so I assume there's some commander commands that can be bound as well.
    I'll try and finish it later tonight.

    the only problem is at the moment its hard to repeatedly spam radio binds if you need to use the menu... or at least harder. Everyone seems to just stab the button at least 5 times when messages are bound.

    Alright, I finished my list of commands. It turned into a list of everything bindable. With this list, you can make a set of binds to completely bypass the popup menu  in the game, and even most if not all of the commander interface buttons (haven't played any commander yet, I'm not sure)
    Anyway, here you go  <!--emo&:D--><img src='' border='0' valign='absmiddle' alt='biggrin.gif'><!--endemo-->

    I can see the conversation now...

    Player: "How do I bind carapace upgrade?<!--emo&???--><img src="" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt='???'><!--endemo-->"
    Me: "impulse 101"
    Player: "Shut up n00b, I know that trick!"
    Me: "No really, it works!"

    sorry to bump this list, but i just found out that impulse 6 for marine is voting the commander out <!--emo&;)--><img src='' border='0' valign='absmiddle' alt='wink.gif'><!--endemo-->
