Ability keys (?)Follow

#1 Jul 26 2010 at 10:29 PM Rating: Good
Is it possible to re-bind the 1-9 ability keys onto, say, the numpad or somewhere else on the keyboard? Or is the 1-9 hardcoded and you can't change the controls? (im assuming only beta testers, or friends thereof, will know this)

Also, when playing with mouse+keyboard (not a controller), do you simply press "1" to use the skill, or do you hit "1" to highlight the skill, and then press a 'confirm' button (like space) to execute it?

Only someone in the beta could answer that, and anyone in the beta is bound by the NDA to not talk about anything in the beta that hasn't been publicly disclosed.

space bar to execute, wat?

It's already been stated that it can all be remapped for the PC

with a controller, you use the D pad to scroll to the ability, and you hit A or X to execute it. Much like macros in ffxi.

With a keyboard, you press 1-9 to use the abilities. what im wondering is if pressing 1 will simply highlight the ability (then you gotta hit an action key to use it, like enter or space or w.e).

Judging from FFXI, what you are assuming will likely hold true. For PC, simply pressing the # key will activate. For controller you will have an execute button.

Anyone who would know for sure could not tell you yet. I guess Beta supports the controller? Perhaps even they would not know.

I'm not in the beta, but a little bird confirmed to me that you press the button, and the action is completed without additional keystrokes.

As for the rest of your question re: rebinding keys, I don't know. But if it's not, it would seem like something they would add before release.
