Car Fast Forward and Car Slow Forward cannot be rebound
Closed, ResolvedPublic


As commander of a vehicle, I am unable to tell my driver to move ahead Slow/Fast other than Fast through pressing Forward twice. I have rebound the fast and slow keys to multiple options, but none of them have any effect. However, the default CTL+w still works for Slow. I use ESDF for movement, so have rebound all of the controls and use W for various weapon functions, but stumbled onto the fact that CTL+w still works for Slow (and therefore the only way to get the vehicle to move slowly other than through manual/analog control).


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
AI Control / Commanding
Steps To Reproduce

Vehicle Movement -

  • Car Forward to something other than default w (example e)
  • Car Fast Forward to something other than default (example a)
  • Car Slow Forward to something other than default (example z)

Enter a vehicle as a commander (with an AI driver) and issue a Car Slow Forward command. Nothing will happen. Now try CTL+w and it will work.

Speed control in A3 is broken for A3 as commander.

in recent versions slow and fast could be bound to almost any key, in A3 it is simply not working.
Since AI drivers are anyway totally crazy, it would be essential to have at least speed control to mitigate the worst teamkills.

Suggestion: allow keybindings to 2 keys which increment/decrement speed by xx km/h when acting as commander.

Tested in the current released version it no longer seems to be an issue.
As a side note to anyone who might have this issue i n the future you have separate keybinding options for commander and driving.
So if you only change the drivers controls, then the controls for commander are still key bound to WASD.
But as far as ive been able to test, driver controls always work for commander too.
