    0.7.1 Controls Broken?

    Basically, keyboard controls have reset and you can't bind RMB any more to Artillery Camera (hotkey reserved). Free look can be bound to, say mouse thumb button (mouse 6). This is a feature more familiar to WoT, for which I have custom mouse button mappings since zoom can't be a custom bound to, say RMB, like in normal fps games. There has to be a strange slav twist in your games WG? Edit: This might be an intended feature or it might be a bug.

    Main Gun Controls

    When each game starts, main guns are in a default "rest position", which also happens to be the ideal position to carry the guns if you go into a situation where there is doubt about which side you want to fire from. Forward guns point forwards. Aft guns point aft. Mid guns point either forwards or aft, depending on the ship; I know I can set the guns to a fixed relative bearing. I know I can set the guns to track a sector. CTRL-X and SHIFT-X. But is there a way to set the main guns to the default start position? Locking the guns to a relative bearing dead ahead doesn't work because the stern guns will be locked to either the extreme port or extreme starboard. A similar problem arise if the guns are locked to dead astern. The idea travel position, sometimes, is the default start position. Is there a way to set the main guns in this way, does anyone know?
  3. A lot of the problems i have with the controls stem from the rather outdated 1995 command & conquer style control scheme coupled with a bunch of system problems. Unit selection and issuing commands: selecting units and issuing commands both uses the left mouse button -> missclicks and wrong commands have large consequences -> lots of readjustments needed. drag-selecting over empty space does not retain the current selection, instead the carrier is selected. the game does not seem to register inputs every frame -> even slightly above average APM starts producing bad inputs in combination this means many quick clicks are registered as a drag when the mouse is moved by just a pixel -> command gets registered as a drag-select -> nothing was selected -> carrier gets selected -> carrier stars moving where the squad was commanded to go to. Handles to adjust attack indicators around are very small and hard to click on. Possible solutions: Use the de-facto standart controls for RTS with left click to select units and UI elements and right click to issue commands. retain the current selection when nothing is selected (sticky selection). The keybind to select the carrier is sufficient for quick access. read inputs into a buffer or increase the polling rate. Camera: When double tapping a squad/carrier selection key or through the minimap, the camera should jump there instantly, not take a lengthy pan over the map. There should be a key that jumps the camera to the current selection. Separate scroll speeds for keyboard scrolling and mouse scrolling and higher maximum scroll speeds. Overhead view zoom speed should be a separate setting from ship/binocular view zoom speed. option to rebind keyboard scrolling to WASD and ship steering to arrow keys while in overhead view.

    So, I have enabled replays, but don't know any of the controls. Could somebody tell me how to pause/slow down/speed up the replay etc?
  5. When will they finally fix the fact that with any mindle of the assigned keyoboard keys the ctrl key stops working on the minimap?... (and that the OLNY way of fixing it is resintalling the WHOLE game?) :-0000 ( http://forum.worldofwarships.eu/index.php?/topic/31064-controls-what-happened-to-my-ctrl-key/ )
  6. the CTRL key does not free the mouse for manual targeting. the help option lists it as the default . the settings lists X as the "lock target" default. the CTRL+X doesnt work, since CTRL does not free the mouse. pls advise.

    Targeting Air squadrons

    Hi all, I know that you can somehow target specific enemy airgroups to focus fire your AA. I though that it was Ctrl+LMB, but that only fires my guns (no, I checked, the Ctrl button isnt broken ;) ) - is that the wrong combination, or how else does this work, am I missing something? Thanks DB

    Can't manual attack

    Proud Zuiho owner here. Youtube tells me to press alt to manually aim torpedoes and to gain the upper hand with IJN fighters against US ones by outflanking them with superior speed. Doesn't work, Is it a bug because I've got the "alt" view enabled? As it is, I can't hit anything in smoke, my bombers just sit there like twerps and I loose all my aircraft well in advance of the end of the fight because I have no counter to US fighters. Equipping both Airgroup mods and dogfighting expert doesn't seem to help, I even loose against lower tier aircraft! Also, I'm not familiar enough with the game yet to know which ships have strong AA or carry fighters.. Learnt the hard way to avoid British cruisers, is there any way to identify the AA capabilities of a ship once in-game? Or any rules of thumb?

    Reset controls

    Anyone knows how to reset controls, ie. keysettings to default? I changed some controls, and accidentaly assigned "P" to some function. Now I cannot turn off AA, and I need it when playing DDs. I tried the option in the cotrols settings, but it doesn't seem to work for that command, and the command itself is not listed, unless I missed something,

    Backend camera

    Hi, could you add an option to swap A, D keys while looking backs? It may seem strange or unnecessary, but it would really help (at least me, maybe I'm the only one retarded) maneuvering looking backwards.

    Cleveland's Consumables

    After having played 30+ games with my trusty Omaha I finally got my hands on a Cleveland only to find out that launching the Catapult Fighter had completely changed from what I remember in the closed beta. Every game so far I've activated my Defensive fire when I really wanted to launch a plane I think it would be a lot easier if the "new" consumable (in the Cleveland's case the Defensive AA Fire or the Hydro acoustic Search) would be set to the next key. I know in the closed beta it was mapped properly being -T- for Catapult fighter and -Y- for the Defensive AA. Is there a reason for the switch or was it just a momentary laps of attention? Cheers

    Problems with CV controls?

    Since 0.7.2 update CV controls produce really weird issues for me (did not play CVs when 0.7 hit so no idea how it looked on relase): - generally less responsive than in 0.6 - problems with drawing selection box over squadrons (fails to select all squadrons in the box or does not draw box at all) - it seems I can not remove squadron from a takeoff queue (as I remember it was possible by right clicking, or am I remembering that wrong?) - yesterday at the end of my third match in Ryujo, I lost capability to do >>anything<< with left mouse click - could not order squadrons, check different screens in post match report. LMB did not work in port either (had to kill game via task manager) - this happened after the mini patch. Do other captains have similar problems? Trying to figure if its problem with my laptop, or just WoWs.

    Disabling Auto-steer?

    Hi all, Is there a way to disable the auto-steer function? Auto-steer (for me) is when you are approaching an island (or another obstacle) and your ship will automatically turn to the left/right, changing course to avoid the obstacle. However, it has worked against me several times now, most recently today in my T5 Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya, where an enemy destroyer came into detection range before turning away again. Realising he must have launched torpedoes at me, I pulled hard right. Then I switched concentration to fire at an enemy Algerie. Unfortunately I was approaching an island that (if I'd done it manually) I could have steered around either side. I only noticed too late that the auto-steer had turned me back around, so rather than avoiding the torpedoes by sailing behind the island (as I had planned), I wandered straight into them. This was super irritating. Any way to disable it?

    cv control binding quetion

    well, im technically more used to where the "1" key is the first ability button, in other games I have played, not moving the bloody carrier around(I have died several times because I thought I moved by fighters to point B, instead i sent my carrier in the middle of the enemy team lol.) sooo is the only way to fix this is to rebind the scheme completely, or something else, if I need to rebind it completely, what is the keybinding is for it called. also how to switch camera so that it views the carrier like with other ships? i find regular camera is better in terms of torp evasion.(harder to tell which end is the front in the birds eye view)

    Keybindings unclear/wrong labled

    It seems as if many of the keybindingoptions are wrong or just unclearly labled. The description of the controls don't correspond to their functionality ingame, and some have no appearent functionality to begin with. For example, the "Track Object" key tracks shells/torpedos after they are shot, while the "Track Shell/Torpedo After Firing" actually fires them and then tracks the fired shot. Lock target doesn't lock any target, it just locks the gun to the current aimed position, just like ctrl+x, which is not even in the Keybinding Settings, but only temporary. The "Highlight Target For Allies" key seems to be unreliable for me. I didn't find any posts about this on the search, if there exists a thread, please post a link, if not, please share if you have these problems too.

    I Want My Right Click BACK!

    Why on earth I still cannot remap the right mouse button?? I really want to know.. Why?? Why I can change a lot of key mappings.. but no to the right and left mouse buttons? Why WG.. ? Really.. Since a couple updates back, (the one which fecked up the division screen) Now it is impossible to remap the mouse buttons. I've even asked it to the support If there is a way that I didn't know, they only answered me, Sorry it is impossible to remap the mouse buttons. They are fixed. Just WHY!!
