[Tutorial] How to make your own binds

Postby Ziltoid » Thu Jan 26, 2012 3:56 pm

I know lycsI already told about it in his "all you need to know" topic, but I though lets make it a bit more clear.
Also this is because I had a lot of trouble making binds because of my noobness in ET xD

NOTE: In this tutorial the key we're going to bind will be "X"


Lets bind keys!
To start with binding keys, you will have to open the console. Do this by pressing "`" on the top-left of your keyboard.
Then for example type /bind X "say Hi!" and press Enter. Then if you press the "X" button, "Hi!" will show up in chat.
Of course just saying Hi! is boring, so we're going to make it a bit more fancier.

If you want to have colors in the text you say, do the following.
Example: Type /bind ^1 "say Hi!" and press Enter again. This way you'll say Hi!
You can type ^ by pressing 6 while holding Shift.


A full list of usable colors can be found below:
SHOW |

0 = black
1 = Red
2 = Green
3 = Yellow
4 = Blue
5 = Cyan
6 = Purple
7 = White
8 = Orange
9 = Grey
a = Orange (2)
b = Green (2)
c = Purple (2)
d = Blue (2)
e = Purple (2)
f = Blue (3)
g = Yellow (2)
h = Green (3)
i = Red (2)
j = Red (3)
k = Brown
l = Orange (3)
m = Yellow (3)
n = White (2)
o = Yellow (4)
p = Black (2)
q = Red (4)
r = Green (4)
s = Yellow (5)
t = Blue (4)
u = Cyan (2)
v = Purple (3)
w = White (3)
x = Orange (4)
y = Grey (2)
z = White (4)

Remember, these can also be used in normal chat or when changing your name, it doesn't matter.


An even cooler way to bind keys is with using so-called Voice Chat. How to use it will be explained with an example.
Example: /bind X "vsay Thanks" ^1Thank ^0You!" and press Enter. This will play the sound "Thanks"(plus others, depending on witch team) and in the chatbox a message saying Thank You! will show up.
Note: The "You!" won't appear with a red background, it is just to show you that the actual color is black.


The full list of usable Voice Chat can be found below:

NOTE1: The numbers are the numbers you would normally press to get to the Voice Chat, for example pressing "v" 5-8-6 would say Good Game!
NOTE2: After the numbers are the lines of text being said.
NOTE3: The last line is what you will have to type to bind a key to the Voice Chat.
NOTE4: I found this list on google.com so it might not be completely accurate concerning what is being said when pressing the binded key.


A last way to make cooler binds is by using Textshortcuts. How to use textshortcuts will be shown with an example.
Example: /bind X "vsay NeedAmmo" ^1Need Ammo! ^0[t] bullets left! and press Enter. This will play the sound "I need ammo!" and more importantly will show the line
Need Ammo! 66* bullets left!

* It depends on what your amount of ammo is at the moment you hit the binded key


A full list of usable Textshortcuts can be found below:

SHOW |
[a] - last person who gave you ammo
[d] - last person who killed you
[h] - last person who gave you health
[k] - last person you killed
[r] - last person who revived you
[l] - your current location
[n] - your name
[s] - your health
[w] - your current weapon
[t] - ammo for current weapon
[p] - the name of the person at your crosshair


NOTE: You can also find the last list by typing /textshortcuts in console and hitting Enter.


EDIT: Thanks to lycsI I now know how to unbind keys: do /unbind [key] in console, so for this tutorial it would be /unbind X.

I hope you guys understood what I wrote and like my tutorial :D
