Ok, as you probably know (check my stats otherwise), im not the greatest fighter in-game. But I do fight (not PK). I dont see what the problem is. I manage to cast restoration, drinks srs and swap weapons quickly and easy enough.

 

I usually do this when fighting:

 

Situation/Target

Gargoyles, Medium and Large.

 

Equipment/Armor

Leather armor, pants and boots.

Mirror cape and medallion.

S2E in Inventory, but I rarely use it (just for backup).

 

Method

 

1.) Click the target to fight.

2.) Iterate through the icons and select the use/pointing finger.

3.) If need be cast restoration and then drink an SR.

4.) Swap weapon (remember, still in pointing finger icon)

5.) Pwn the enemy, win the fight, get the girl, marriage, kids....errr...yeah.

 

My point is this: I personally manage to use the new system easy enough to cast restoration, quaff a potion and use a weapon with minimal difficulty.

 

(BTW, I voted yes on the Poll)

Fighting creatures isn't the same as pk. Creatures behave the same every time, you know what they can do and you know what you can do. Nothing changes. You know your limits and choose the creatures accordingly and set your pattern accordingly.

Pk you have to think fast and react fast, it's different every time depending on who's attacking you, levels, equipment used, magic items used, whether you get double teamed, whatever, you need to be able to maneuver much more quickly and when your icon is different for each place you use it, you constantly have to scroll through to find the right one.

Ok see , if i fight fluffy i dont have to click a SR under fighting becuz i got 60 mana

so when i fight him i can restore twice thats enough, then i killed him and i drink the potions. but...in a PK fight you dont have enough mana so you have to click SR's under fighting, and thats the problem.

 

I'am not complaining about Training,but PK. for training you dont have to be Quik, and for PK you have to be Quik and that is not possble with this Interface.

I died a few times already 'cos i was looking at the damn pots ;)

Also i was looking at some very nice monsters till they got out of range, then hat to run a lot after them. In PK it's much worse.

 

I want my double right-click back please!

 

Can't we have an option in el.ini to enable that and disable the cycling?

 

Also, i noticed a lot of ppl voted that they like the the new interface, but just 2-3 said so. If all the other voted yes just to annoy Scarr/Satan, it's stupid.

Sorry, but i dont call it hotkeys when you have to push 2 buttons.

its alreayd hard to repeat a magic spell with ctrl+r

And i Like to have 1 hand at the [home] to flee monsters.

 

 

if you don't liek the interface, change it!

im not a programmer, but if you wanna try to explain me how to change it i would be happy :P)~

maybe a new input mode would be in order? say haveing to press enter to start typeing? turn that on and you dont have to press ctrl to trigger a hotkey any more?

Wait, didn't someone implement reconfigurable keys? Then we just need actions for HR and SR, so Satan can put these on e.g. F11 and F12.

i dont think there is a way to do that yet...

and by needing a keypress before typeing one allows for more of the keyboard to be used as single key hotkeys...

you don't need to look at the shortcut keys if they are close together. Try it at least? And try it for longer than 5mins, please.
