Always run disables creep?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else noticed this or was that intentional? My standard thief configuration was to have always run on, with shift as creep and ctrl as crouch. I can set all these keys up, but when always run is turned on, creep doesn't do anything.

 

I just finished school and am getting back into TDM and decided to play a few FM's to get ready to take another shot at mapping. The mod really turned out wonderfully. I doubt the mission has anything to do with the "problem", but I noticed it on the training mission and No Honor Among Thieves.

 

Its not a big deal as I've almost gotten used to shift as run and ctrl as creep and x as crouch, but I figured I would ask anyways.

i used a similar setup for thief, auto-run on, hold LMB = walk, hold MMB = creep (iirc). Always seemed to me that bindings for the speed your character moves at takes precedence over all other bindings, and should be the most accessible. Flexibility with auto-run on/off and other bindings should play a crucial role to the quality of gameplay. Seems like it should be easy enough for devs, but somehow if i held LMB to walk, using 4 on the numpad to strafe left would not strafe while walking, or some such nonsense.

 

TDM bindings i keep auto-run off, hold LMB = run, hold MMB = creep. It can get a little tedious trying not to scroll the mousewheel while creeping, as disastrous results can occur by accidently equipping a sword or moss arrows, but for the most part it works fairly well, and i've not encountered any weird binding bugs while running/creeping in TDM with auto-run set to off.

It is possible to toggle always run so that likely is a way to fix this.

It is possible to have multiple changes (separated by ; I think) so should be possible to add creep to the above so it toggles always run 'out' and also toggles in creep - probably bind to creep. I'm out of time to try it out at the moment but that gives you a start point or someone might figure it out.

i've always found (just personally) that toggles are ugly, and require more brain memory, and less muscle memory when trying to multi-task operations in a time-sensitive sequence of necessary actions. (i prefer brain power to be left to split-second strategic/tactical decisions like "run away" or "move to the other side of the corridor with more shadows and exit routes", rather than "wait, was i running or walking?" *toggle-test toggle-test*).

 

if it would be possible to hold down a key that would both disable auto-run and enable creep, and then re-enable auto-run and disable creep upon letting go of the button, that would be pretty cool.

Apparently D3 does not have the capability to created momentary button scripts rather than toggle script anymore. In half-life for instance you could do all sorts of funky stuff with scripts. It's also not possible to link the existing momentary scripts like the speed modifiers "_speed" and "_button5" with other functionality in one button-bind. So this would need code support I guess.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
