Adjust stance modifier removed
Closed, ResolvedPublic


It seems that the Stance Adjust entry is removed. There is the Stance up, down, left, right. And they are set to CTRL+W,A,S,D. However i have been playing by holding "Mouse#5" (thumb button on mouse) as stance modifier and then pressed keyboard W,A,S,D to change the stance.

The issue:
When i went into the controls and then out again without changing anything this function all of a sudden stopped. I went into controls to see why and i noticed that there is no Stance Adjust entry for a modifier, and i cant see anywhere that my mouse#5 is added. So im not sure how its working other than it being a left over in the controls config?

I cant tell if this function was removed, but since i cant see my mouse button anymore in the control binds im guessing it was removed and replaced with the "combat stance 3 seconds" perhaps.

It would be bad if this function was removed because people get used to their bindings. And this was a good bind option since you need less finger dancing on the keyboard when changing stances (i do it a lot because its a great addition to ARMA).

So either bring that back, please, or make it possible to bind mouse buttons as modifiers like for example "mouse#5+W" (same as for e.g. SHIFT+W or CTRL+A which is doable). When holding a mouse button and then press a keyboard button when binding it doesnt work. You get the mouse button by itself and under it you get the keyboard button separately, so you cant have a mouse button as modifier. If this was introduced then there would be no need to add a "stance adjust" modifier entry.

Update: My stance adjust with mouse started to work again after i alt+tabbed a second time. Not sure whats going on, but there is no entry in the control options for it so im guessing its a spooky left over that keeps working until i reinstall ARMA3. Becuase as i said, i cant see my mouse#5 being added to any of the controls, but yet it works.

Options-controls. There is no more stance adjust modifier entry. Only stance up, stance down, stance left, stance right. Previously there was a "stance adjust" entry where you could add any button to use with W,A,S,D.

The function was removed. Stance up, stance down, stance left, stance right was added to compensate for the removed adjust modifier.

Thank you for your feedback.
