X3TC: Repair Laser + SETA... huh?

Post by Solomon Short » Sat, 12. Sep 09, 17:45

Here on the forums I've seen numerous mentions (or I've seen the same mentions numerous times, can't be certain) of using the Repair Laser & SETA in conjunction to repair ships in a timely manner, however I can't work out how to use the laser without disrupting SETA, & my search-fu (I'm a search-fool) isn't upto finding out how this is achieved...

Help? (NB: Already "Modified", so if I need a script that isn't a problem)

Well normally pressing and holding left control and j at the same time works for me.

The auto aim script lets you set the laser to autofire without having to hold down anything. =)

There is no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Thank you gentleman, I'm embarrassed to have to say that Technojerk36's solution was too simple to occur to me... :-(

I will also try Gazz's script since I have so many others of his. :-D

Answering this, not for the sake of the original poster (more than 9 years ago!) but because:
1. his original question was not resolved,
2. I came here just now searching for the same exact info,
3. I took some time to figure it out

So go ahead and shout necro all you want; I don't really care.

To answer the question, then: Apparently code exists somewhere that assumes the default key configuration, because it is true that this trick won't work (or at least I and perhaps the OP couldn't get it to work for this reason) with some modified keys.

I changed my SETA to shift-T and my boresight (normally unused) to right-ctrl. This does not work. I tried various combinations, even O and L, respectively, and they did not work, either. The only combo I was able to get to work was ctrl + one character. I settled on boresight (B) and SETA (right ctrl). Interestingly, reversing the two keys does not work. Strange stuff.

So there you have it.
