As a modder, that's really insulting that they're taking a mod's name... Even in acronym form. At the end of the day, a trademark is a trademark. Gotta register it or make money off of it. Cutting Defense of the Ancients to DotA was a smart move.

Well that's graphics. That is harder to change, depending. Moving forward, strafing, and turning... That's probably just a slight change to your codebase and would make it more enjoyable for all involved.

IceIYIaN Dec 6 2009, 5:44pm replied:

It's 2009 and you made a -computer- game. We expect mouse use. Moving forward, strafing, and turning all at the same time.

It's only useless in your game cause when you try to do more than turn it cancels out your actions making you just stand there. Anybody who's played a FPS'er is just gonna /cringe and /quit.

IceIYIaN Dec 3 2009, 7:07pm replied:

Strafing and turning is just so important. I understand you want basic controls, but you limit your game so much in terms of gameplay that most players will be put off. I guess you should just remove strafing cause it was beyond annoying in your game when turning would cancel it out.

Wanting to Buy +mlook (wtb I guess is from WoW/MMORPG's)
+mlook is the hotkey/console command/config.cfg for turing mouse look on.
Quake/Half-Life/Call of Duty/-ANY- game/mod that uses Quake's Config.cfg has that command.

IceIYIaN Dec 3 2009, 4:17am replied:

No, it doesn't require new graphics. In Zelda when you press up, you move up. When you press down, you move down. In Diablo, you move towards where the mouse curser is. I'm just saying you could add these options. Not that it matters, always pointing to the north of the screen is the best sky camera system IMHO.

Hotkeys/Configs matter ;) But you won't even allow turning/strafing at the same time... wtb +mlook

IceIYIaN Nov 11 2009, 5:35pm replied:

The view is the same in your game, Zelda, and Diablo. It's 2D from above. Your camera system allows rotation. I ment adding a hotkey to allow Zelda style movement or a hotkey to bring a mouse pointer you can aim/move like that. Then when you let go the player returns to looking at the top of the screen.

Your hotkeys menu doesn't have to change at all. What I'm asking for a config.cfg change. All you gotta do is change your engine from Configuration.txt to Config.cfg looking something like this:

bind "A" "+back"
bind "S" "+forward"
bind "D" "+moveleft"
bind "F" "+moveright"
bind "SPACE" "+Attack"
Name "Death"
Theme "Default"
Volume "1.0"

Then any unknown command that a user could put in it, just have the game remove it from the config or simply overlook it.

But yeah that could be some work... It's a request though.

IceIYIaN Nov 11 2009, 1:01pm replied:

BOH and Elements of War aim at the north of the screen always. Looks like Shadowgrounds you can aim anywhere. Unless you mean it combines Diablo aim with Zelda movement, which I don't care for either of the three.

+1 vote   game: BOH
IceIYIaN Nov 11 2009, 11:41am replied:

Well I make a mod called 1337 Board which offers over 9,000 hotkeys... The ability to not turn and strafe at the same time is a major turn off. If you're not going to add a mouse option to turn and shoot, I'd suggest adding a hotkey to make turning faster.

I'd like to see your config use Config.cfg (Quake/Half-Life/Call of Duty) - Although your system is fine as is... I'd like you to use that because then my mod might work in your game, lol...
bind "a" "+back"
bind "s" "+forward"

Using combo hotkeys would be great too. bind "ALT-Space" "+attack"
Usually combot keys use TAB/CapsLock/Shift/CTRL/ALT.

Also, hot about a hotkey to make the game act like classic top down view games like Zelda? Simply let go or toggle it to return to the normal camera system.

Looks like way, way old school arrow key hotkeys. Later players started to use WASD, because of the access to even more hotkeys. With some players finally using ESDF. However, I use ASDF movement
A = Back
S = Forwards
D = Strafe Left
F = Strafe Right
Right Click = Jump // Space as Duck

I'd rather use ASDF with my mouse to slash/jump/scare/collect... But that's just me :p

Well my levels you can only read atm. However, other authors can use photos, sounds, music, have somebody read the book to you, etc. You could play multi-player where your grand pa reads it to you, have a group get together to play the voices...

I never liked the idea of DLC, but for some reason this game has it all over it.

That was just a console command.

However, for Gold Source games can use the chase camera commands.
chase_active 1
chase_up 0
chase_right -16 to 16 (Left or right shoulderview)

Simply put, I didn't realize you could mix third person camera with chase camera. The next version will be updated to use both.

Nope, just copy 1337 Board's Half-Life 2 folder into your Half-Life 2 folder and enjoy! It'll only replace kb_act(Your keyboard menu)

However, if it's not HL/HL2/CSS/L4D and it's a mod, IF that mod has different hotkeys, then you just gotta make sure you add those hotkey's to 1337 Board's keyboard menu (Game/Scripts/kb_act)

As for Elements of War mod, unless you want to change it from a default Half-Life 2 mod into say Dark Messiah, then just paste it into your SourceMods folder. If you want to make it into a HL2mp, Portal, Dark Messiah mod, just change the GameInfo.txt (ElementsofWar/GameInfo.txt)

Most of the stuff in EoW you can copy/paste into any Gold Source or Source game. If the game has extra hotkeys(like say +attack3) then you just gotta make sure when you copy/paste the keyboard that you don't override those keys(so you gotta actually get into it)

I just wanted to say copyrights and trademarks can be a tricky issue. Even if you do create/edit something for free, it's possible the "owners" could still sue you. In the case of id, I really doubt they're gonna try and sue you until you do massive amounts of work or just theft. I'm taking a guess that they will attempt to have you hault your work though. I'd suggest making "DeathMatch Classic" instead. It's just a name, afterall...

I looked at the EoW game icon/app, it appears to link to C:/GameZ/UT2004/ that's probably why it wasn't working. I always use GameZ as my install dir...

Hotkeys are based around ASDF, aka touch typing. I've used ASDF for years, if you want to listen to me talk about it:

Not sure why you had a crash... I play just fine. That one level, iff you fall, it won't let you respawn(you didn't die from the fall)

As for EoW... It's Half-Life, Half-Life 2, most Valve games, UT3/2003/4, Quake... World of WarCraft. It's mainly a HL2 mod. I no longer continue UT2004/UT3.

1337 Board doesn't override your Config.cfg You should already have the default keys or changed to your own, like I use ASDF movement. (exec xCFG/xGameZ/ElementsofWar.cfg for my full default FPS'er hotkeys or my WoW config for my FULL hotkey set).

Movement keys are at the top of the keyboard menu(you don't gotta paste kb_act over the default one, you can open it up in a text editor and just paste it at the bottom). Anyways, if you spend just a few minutes making a config, it's not gonna be very good.
