Binds for Making the most of your Kheldian

For each type of Kheldian, recommend having 3 files for binds.

/bind b "target_custom_next enemy alive Boss"

 

I cannot get this one to work either, do I need to remove the current bind on B before I bind this key?

If you copy/paste it, it should replace whatever you had bound to b. And as JusticeBowler said, Bosses aren't specifically selectable unless the word Boss is in their name.

Can't find anything on a bind/or macro on changing costumes using the change emotes.  I've tried using the key mapping via the options but the emote wont happen (yes it's turned on).  I remember back in the day I had one but I can't remember it, and I can't find it any where.  Thanks in advance!

/bind [key] "cce [costume number, 0 is the 1st] [costume emote name]"

/macro [name] "cce [costume number, 0 is the 1st] [costume emote name]"

 

Here's the list of emotes from paragon wiki...there are a couple of new ones in I25, but I don't remember their names: 

https://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Emotes#Costume_Change_Emotes

 

example

/macro CC "cce 1 ccbackflip"

 

or if you character says something when changing costumes

/bind CTRL+NUMPAD1 "cce 2 cccast$$l by our powers combine"

 

or you can have a power toggle on with it

/macro CC0 "cce 0 ccenergymorph$$powexec_toggleon prestige power slide"

I've got a couple of questions and a request for specific help on a macro I've been trying to put together.

 

I want to make my character say something everytime a certain power is used i.e. resurrect and say "Rise!" locally.

Should i be binding the macro to a button or can it be worded to activate the power no matter what button i am using for the power (because i may move buttons around as i level up)

 

The other macro im trying to do is to allow a button click for my young son who plays with me to auto target me and then follow me. So far I've got a button that targets me but sometimes targets others or even my pets and a separate button for follow. Id prefer something reliable and one button only.

 

Last question is about where macros are stored and is there a file i can move around machines or make available to all my alts?

 

many thanks in advance!

 

Neil.

It may just be semantics here, but to ensure we are saying the same thing...A bind is to a specific key on the keyboard, specific mouse button, or a combination.  But it is specific.  So if I bind something to the "F" key, it will only happen when I press the "F" key...

 

A macro creates a "button" on the powers tray.  And you can move it around all over, but it requires you to click the button (or the appropriate keystrokes for the slot the button is in) to activate it.  So if you put it in the 3 spot on the 1st power tray, you can either click the macro, or press 3 to execute it...

 

I'm hoping that clears up the first question -

/Macro [name] "l Rise$$powexec_name [Revive Power Name]" for local chat, otherwise for team chat - /Macro [name] "g Rise$$powexec_name [Revive Power Name]"

 

2nd question for your kiddo

/Macro [name] "target_custom_next [your hero's name here]$$follow" should do the trick.  It will only target something that in the brackets as part of it's name.  So if your Hero's name is "gunner", it's going to target any NPC that has "gunner" in the name...

 

3rd question - I do not believe you can save macro's - just the binds...However, you can edit the macro and copy/paste the text into notepad, and then paste them into the next character you want to have that macro...

Is there a way to write up a macro to have a 1. Costume change (to 2nd costume), activate flight, then 2. if clicked again will cycle to hover, then 3. if clicked again, toggles off hover and changes back to the 1st costume?

Probably not as a macro, but you could do it as a bind (work of a keystroke or mouseclick instead of a button on the power tray)

 

Create 3 .txt files...and for convenience put them in the data folder where you have CoH installed.  I'll call them Fly here

Fly1.txt = "CTRL+NUMPAD1 "CCE 1 [costume emote here]$$powexec_toggleon Fly$$bind_load_file fly2.txt"

Fly2.txt = "CTRL+NUMPAD1 "powexec_name Hover$$bind_load_file fly3.txt"

Fly3.txt = "CTRL+NUMPAD1 "CCE 0 [costume emote here]$$powexec_toggleoff Hover$$bind_load_file fly1.txt"

 

then create a bind for the first scenario -

/bind CTRL+NUMPAD1 "CCE 1 [costume emote here]$$powexec_toggleon Fly$$bind_load_file fly2.txt"

 

Now whenever you do CTRL and "1" on the Number pad, it'll cycle thru what you just described

 

And away you go...let me know if you need more info

So I've been looking around have seen talk of a couple of legendary hover/flight macros, sadlly when following the links to them the 'waybackmachine' has not stored those pages.

 

My suspicion is that the best we could get is a button that switches back and forth between hover and flight.

 

What I would love is a macro button that leaves me hovering while stationary (fighting melee) but as soon as i start moving it switches to full flight (and maybe afterburner) and then back to hover when i stop moving again...

 

....if it could bring me a coffee and massage my feet at the same time, that would also be good :)

 

 

Many thanks in advance!

 

Neil.

@CaptainAmazing

So I had posted the same request on Reddit as well.. I think this may be the answer you are looking for

/bind BUTTON4 "powexecname Super Jump$$powexecname Combat Jumping"

 

I used this back in the day.  "Back" button on my mouse toggles between combat jumping and super jump.  I used this to switch from flight and hover as well.

 

/bind MBUTTON "powexecname Radiation Infection$$powexecname Enervating Field"

 

On my radiation defender, I use this to turn off the two targeting AoE toggles so they can recharge before we get to the next group of mobs.  This won't work to cast them, just turn them off.

Can someone proofread my binds?

 

moving forward and pseudo-auto energize power

/bind w "+forward$$powecex_name Energize"

 

open chat with shift enter instead of enter

/bind enter ""

/bind shift&enter "beginchat /send"

You misspelled 'powerexec_name' You reversed the x and c. To remove a bind it's /unbind enter or whatever the key is. I don't know if you an bind a null. Beginchat needs another arguement for the channel you are chatting in.  like 'beginchat /send Local'. If you want to send to the active channel the command is 'showchat$$startchat'

Also, you need to use the "+", not the "&" to bind 2 keys together.  NOP is the "null command" for a key...

 

Here they are in nice copy/paste format:

/bind w "+forward$$powexec_name Energize"

 

/bind shift+enter "show chat$$startchat"

/bind enter "nop"
