At the time of this posting the actionmapper does not yet support the new free reticle actions, but it will be udpated soon.For the impatient:
- Download the actionmaps.txt that is attachted to this post
- Rename it to actionmaps.xml
- Copy it to Documents\My Games\Crysis Wars\Profiles\<your Profile Name>\actionmaps.xml
Now the toggle free reticle action will be bound to your left ALT button. As long as you hold it down you will be in free reticle mode.The full explenation
The free reticle has two modes. The "torso follow" mode and the "free" mode. The "torso follow" mode is on per default. In the "torso follow" mode your torso will always try to line up with your reticle. While it is doing so the reticle will also recenter itself. In the "free" mode the torso does not try to keep up with your reticle and only moves if you reach the limits of the free reticle.
Torso mounted weapons will only be able to shoot at targets that are within the circle that is displayed on the mech HUD. If you try to shoot at targets that are not within the circle each torso mounted weapon will try to shoot as close to the target as possible (can be far of ...). Also if you get to close to a target, your torso mounted weapons might also no longer be able to shoot at it, because they can not fire in the required angle.
Add the following xml to your actionmaps.xml "mechs" section to have a button that activates the free mode as long as it is pressed. (left ALT in this case)
<action name="toggle_free_reticle" onPress="1" onRelease="1">
If you want it to be a toggle button, and not a "hold down" button, paste the following into your mechs section of the actionmaps.xml
<action name="toggle_free_reticle" onPress="1">Pro mode:
Set the cvar cl_free_reticle_independent to 1. When you do this, the movement of the free reticle and the torso will be completely independent. You can then switch between them with the toggle key.
You can also bind the two actions
to the mouse. This only makes sense if you have a complete joystick setup at the moment.
Using these two actions you can control your mechs movement and torso rotation with a joystick and at the same time
move the reticle around with your mouse.
This should provide the ultimate mechwarrior experience.
