  • Programming keys for text commos

    Is there any way to pre-program keys to do something like in the SOPs such as: say to team "cc." or any other text commos?

    I haven't figured it out but it seems do-able since it's in the SOPs.

    Sloppy...you would think so wouldn't ya? I know I tried with my G15 Keyboard which has Macro's...but without it...I don't think you/we are in luck... Maybe a simple Windows Macro program would work? Assign the text to some random key and maybe it transfers in game??
    Let me know if you come up with something magic!..

      I think you can create custom chat messages by rebinding the number keys along the top of the keyboard.

      Check out this FAQ from Armaholic:

      http://www.armaholic.com/plug.php?e=faq&cid=3

      It's #3 on the page (Custom Sounds and Chat Messages). This is specifically for multi-player...I'm not sure what happens when you have AI Co-op as those keys are kinda neccessary.

        Just an update. This works beautifully. For comms, you hit '0' and if you have these custom sounds/chat messages, '9' will take you to your custom list and voila. There they are.

        Works with and without AI Co-op.

        It would be good to define a standard set of these and integrate them with the other comm SOP'S?

            Yeah, my issue is that I want to press a single key for my response, like I can in CS:S.

                AutoHotKey will do what you're looking for... it lets you create macros, where pressing one button can cause other buttons to be 'pressed'.


                A simple script like this should do the trick...
                Code:
                Numpad0::
                 send {\}
                 send {c}
                 send {c}
                 send {enter}
                return

                  That is exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks!

                      I was trying to get this setup today..but it won't recognize my USB Headset.. 'sniff..

                      I get "Microphone Wizard Failed to Initialize" ..but in the Win Control panel I can go to speech, do training etc... Any Ideas??

                      (maybe this should be in a Different Forum..?)

                          I had a boat load of trouble getting shoot to work too. I think it has to do with the MS speech engine code being 5+ years old and judging by the dates on the shoot site, it's not very actively developed ;)

                          I ran across this, which comes with an unrestricted free trial...and then it's fairly cheap to buy afterwards:

                          but I never did put in the time to test it out.

                            It is just TOO easy to add custom radio text...
                            I will try and spell it out for those of us less tech savy..

                            Make a new folder..
                            My Documents\ArmA Other Profiles\<Your profile>\Sound

                            Then in that folder create new text document.. (right click in the window, New, Text Document) .. then name the file what you want it to say in chat.. To keep "CC" as the first selection I named it "1.. CC" or "a.. CC" that way I just hit 0-9-1.. and "a.. CC" is put in chat.

                            You can put in sound files and they will play when called up... But I heard they may lag the server when used.. BAD idea :D

                              Yeah.. I did it exactly the same method you suggested and it is that EASY... That's another list I have to start keeping.. Stuff I need a Hot Key for... I forget out of game.. ;-)

                              But I am tempted to get SHOOT working (if Possible on my system)..
