LBI LET US CHANGE MELEE BUTTON!

9 replies 108 views Edited Jul 17, 2012

Why can't we change the R3 button, to, say, circle or something?

 

This is the most annoying thing in the game. Who had the bright idea to make melee - a button that gets accidentally hit during firefights all the time - R3? UGH.

 

For the next update, can we please add custom control configurations? If not, I'd really like to know why. I know nothing about code but I doubt it would very difficult to do this. Assign an intern to fix it for all I care.

 

Thanks for listening.

Yeah a lot of us have been asking for this, since during intense maneuvering we tend to blow our chaff without wanting to.

Just have the knife added to quick select for the ground weapons and press R1 to slice all you want. Worked well in WarHawk.

Hahaha. You are so partially correct. Since I'm almost certain console code is compiled, C++ or C is probably the language in question. If it's C, lack of classes will make this a pointer nightmare. If it's C++, then yes this should be easy - create those pointers that link to the buttons in memory. Then make the array and use those as arguments in the control functions.

Just sayin'.

I would want that, but too many people would whine.

Agreed Matt-Moore. The people who complain about bruiser would complain 10x more if the knife worked like that. Oh and nice War Machine sig.
