I know alot of you have missed out on some things, because you were not aware of certain hot key functions. I wrote up all I could think of and I know I have missed a few. So please add them if you see something missing. Smile

If we can get this complete, and seperate the vanilla JA2 Hotkeys and the new 1.13 Hotkeys, then I'll do better than stick it Smile

I'll wiki it Smile

Well I was hoping to see more input here. I guess everything has been covered. I will "pretty this up" and seperate the old from the new as soon as I can. And post it all again.

In the mean time I am hoping if someone dosen't see a hot key on here to please post it.

Everything I know about is here. However, it might be useful to point out the various click-related functions in Tactical mode (all are part of the default JA2 engine):

Tactical - Real-Time Mode:
Click (on portrait): Select Mercenary / Move Screen to Mercenary (if already selected)
Alt+Click (on portrait): Centre Screen on Mercenary (if not visible) / Show Mercenary's Location (if visible)
Click: Select Mercenary
Alt+Click: Deselect Mercenary (if selected) / Add Mercenary to Selection (if not selected)
Right-Click: Cycle Current Click Action
Right-Click and Hold: Change Mercenary's Assignment (on mercenary) / Select Click Action from Toolbox (on other tile)
Left-Click and Drag: Select Multiple Mercenaries (when using selection cursor) / Fire (when using targetting cursor) / Walk Gunfire (when using targetting cursor with weapon in BRST or AUTO) / Change Stance (when clicking on mercenary and dragging up or down) / Scale Obstacle (when clicking on mercenary and dragging up)
Left-Click and Hold, Right-Click, Release Left: Order all Mercenaries in Sector to Move to Specified Location


Would anyone be averse to also posting a list of all of the GABBI cheats on the Wiki? I could do one up on relatively short notice.

GABBI cheats are useful for testing. Especially the fun kind of "testing".

Yes. I had planned on adding all that. But I was lazy and haven't put it in. But I will do a much better layout soon.

Yes. Please go ahead and do the GABBI cheat hot keys. I was also going to do this myself, but since you "volunteered", please do. Smile

Holding SHIFT in tactical also sticks the cursor to the ground for easy movement of mercenaries. Like when you absolutely NEED to put a merc in that spot in the northern wall right above a locker on the inside and all you keep getting is the hand cursor...or when you have all your mercs bunched up in a tight space and you want to add one more, but everytime you click in that empty space in between the other 5 mercs, you select one of them instead and your last guy in ends up getting shot from behind, or you move your other mercs out or what ever, very frustrating....SHIFT.

V... Brings up other information in addition to version, also lists some optional settings.

SPACE on map screen togles between paused and your last selected time-compression rate.

HOME/END/PGUP/PGDN/UPARROW/DOWNARROW - On map screen these scroll up and down through the message window.

LEFTARROW/RIGHTARROW - On Map Screen, these select the next/previous Merc.

CTRL - Loadscreen, brings up game settings for the selected save.

ALT-C Load last saved game (Main Menu screen ONLY).

1.13 -

ALT-LMB = Sell item in Sector Inventory (If option is turned on)

CTRL-LMB - Permanently Delete item in Sector Inventory.

I'll do it, or someone else can do it, it would just be really helpful to a lot of people to have a Hotkey list all in one place for reference.

And yeah, I think most keys are used at least once, and some of them, like SHIFT, are used for a ton of things.

I was just teasing you. Smile Of course I will do it. And I agree it is something that will be very beneficial to everyone. Everything all in one place and easily printed out, so you can view it while your playing.

That's it. I keep the UB book close by when playing, because it has all the keys on 5 pages, so it's easy to find what I'm looking for.

Not everyone has the original JA2 or UB though, with the hard copy manuals.

I'm sure I'm overlooking something incredibly obvious, but how do I get auto-mode to fire more than one round? When I select it, it always fires only one shot unless the merc accidentally fires too many shots.

@ Twinxor

Just keep right clicking it, like you do with your regular shot. Just remember you will need APs to use it, otherwise it stays at 1 shot.


And welcome to the forum. Smile

= Equals Key : Selects all mercs in the current sector, regardless of squad, but only in real-time. (same for auto-bandage 'A')
-gabbi ALT-O deals a 100 damage to all enemies in sector, bugs can take more and will stay standing.
(I know, I'm practically begging for that wet-towel.)

Serious here, could the respective key-info be added to the various ingame help-screens:
  • (Welcome to your Laptop (press H to get help at any time)
  • Welcome to Arulco (press H to get help at any time)
  • Sector Inventory Screen (press H to get help at any time)
  • The Tactical Screen (press H to get help at any time)


CTRL-GABBI
  • ALT-G (in tactical) adds a random merc on the roster, 14-days paid. (?random?, not really, but not selectable either)
  • ALT-I (in tactical) adds a random gun on beneath your cursor.
  • ALT-W (when viewing a large item-screen in tactical screen) scrolls trough the item-list in a progressive #-fashion.
    -Put the item-you're going to view in the upper hand, or the game will 'create' an item in the upperhand: item #1.
  • ALT-B (tactical) adds an enemy soldier beneath your cursor
  • ALT-C (tactical) adds a civilian beneath your cursor
  • ALT-2 turns selected merc into a babybug-creature.
  • ALT-4 puts selected merc in a wheelchair (no-character inventory, pretty useless.)
  • ALT-5 turns selected merc into a bigbug-creature.(now we're talking)

What can I say, it takes one to know some. Wink
I've missed out on some too, there should be keys for adding bloodcats and creatures as well.

@ Kaiden

Is the list above good enough for you to add to the wiki? Or did you have another format in mind? And since no one else has suggested anything else to be added then I guess there isn't anything else to be added. At least I couldn't come up with anymore.

Only one complaint: Kaiden, if you could do a search and replace on that page's text to replace "CRTL" with "CTRL", that'd be peachy. Wink

God, you'd think I was having a period or something... I'm bitching about the littlest things. (Yes, I'm male. =P)

CTRL + D : Enemies can now drop all items when they die.

Where/when do you do this. I tried it, figuring it would be an easy way to get items at the start of the game. But, I can't tell any difference from normal play. Drops in Omerta still end up averaging out at a cple of pistols and and 3-5 ammo clips, even when they are firing rifles.

Nevermind, found it in the options ... so, is Ctrl + D out of date? Or does the option just allow you to use ctrl + D?

I reckon I'll find out. Razz

If you turned it on when your merc landed on Omerta, it won't work right away. You should have enemies drop all items in the next battle.

In the INI it says something about SHIFT+F emptying all weapons on the ground in sector and removing attachments, but this doesn't seem to work. Is this a planned feature or something?

EDIT: NM I was just trying to use it in the inventory screen, it has to be done in Tactical mode and there is no notifiation.

Two months late, but better late than never.

@DeathWalker, the Ctrl-D just turns the Drop-All option ON/OFF. It can also be done through the Options screen. Both methods accomplish the same results.

Dumb question, but how do I get the vision "graph" to show up on screen. I mean the top picture on this page http://ja2v113.schtuff.com/instructions_for_new_features. I know at one point I got it to work but that was months ago. I recently started playing JA2 again and forgot this one.
