[Suggestion] Allow multiple hotkeys for skill shortcuts
« on: November 25, 2017, 04:33:56 AM »
I really wish you could have two different keys (such as F1 and Q) map to the same skill selection hotkey. This would really help in multiplayer, since different maps require to be fast with different skill. Toying Around for example really helps to have you walker and shoveler hotkeys right next to each other, when you wouldn't want that on other maps.

I second this suggestion.

I too am trying to improve my keyboard ninja skills :P

This would improve the competition in the game!

Yeah, ideally, all functions should be bindable to several keys.

I found it hard to design the hotkey dialog with skills binding to several keys. The widget that accept many keys is wide: It's 2 small buttons and one large button, very cramped to put 14 of these in a row. I settled on the leaner look and thought nobody wanted multiple keys anyway. I will re-examine how it looks to bind skills to multiple keys.

Unrelated to the sound suggestion -- are you sure you want different layouts for different levels? Muscle memory is easiest to build when the layout stays the same across the board.

I do want different layouts for different levels. Generally, I like having my NeoLemmix hotkeys, but race maps in particular demand speed over everything else, especially Toying Around where you have to bash quickly to get through obstacles, and the basher hotkey is quite far away from my walker one generally.

Multiple keys per skill are now implemented in Lix 0.9.4.
