Bind action bar to different keys?Follow

I desperately want to rebind the action bar, you cant use wsad and use the action bar at the same time and it drive me nuts. I've always used the number pad for my action bar.

Plus just using the standard numbers are so far apart and without looking it's hard to tell where your finger is.

I want to be able to menu cast, like I did in FFXI. Or, at the very least, make macroing easy like FFXI...right now I have to actually wait briefly between holding Ctrl and then switching to Alt... otherwise the Ctrl menu will just stay open, even though I am no longer pressing the Ctrl key.

They should offer a widget that just shows recast timers of used abilities, and allow you to completely turn off the action bar.

Cannot tell if serious.

SE offering a plugin/widget for their MMO? You're making FFXIV's ps3 rebirth success becoming a WoW rival seem plausible in comparison. They should but never will. However, that's only based on playing FFXI for 5 years. And every PC port game SE has ever produced. Anything could happen, but only technically speaking.

widg·et
noun /ˈwijit/ 
widgets, plural

1. A small gadget or mechanical device, esp. one whose name is unknown or unspecified

2. A component of a user interface that operates in a particular way


A widget, is not, by definition a plugin, nor is it by definition user defined. In fact, FFXIV is already full of widgets. Almost too many one might say.

FFXIV is full of them... Action Bar, HP Bar, SP/XP Bar, Minimap, etc... I guess you didn't know what a widget was.

Ahh, makes more sense in that context.

As for the OP, there are unrelated programs that can remap your keyboard. If you really want to use the numpad, that's going to have to be the direction you go in. I can't remember offhand the program that does it, but a google search for a program that can remap keyboard layouts should be a workable hack (swapping "1" for "NUMPAD_1", that sort of thing).

Ew.. I quit LoL after playing since release, best decision ever. They are more interested in money than Blizzard is! After they boast "we are all about the players"... bs so many broken promises on their part yet they keep pumping out champ after champ, skin after skin and keep the prices the same. They advertise the champs through "pheaklights" where he just out level and out farms the enemy (pretty blatant that they let him) then he just stomps them as hes 4-5 levels ahead.

Watch the Yorick spotlight, I quit after that mess happened. Was a good game before they got so corporate.

Yea I had thought of that and was considering it, but would consider it last option, I have a logitech keyboard and I think they let you do something like that if you actually install their software.

LoL just makes me furious... I referenced it unknowingly (I've tried to lobotomize that portion of my brain.. clearly failed). Too many trolls, a-holes, bads, little kids, server / stability problems (sounds familiar lol), bugs, bull spit. Alright, that's the end of my rant. RAWR!

On-topic
Re-assigning keys is an option.. I did that for my 10 button mouse so I can navigate through menus, craft, while watching tv and not pay attention.
