View Full Version : How to use a flare

18th Dec 2000, 09:24 AM
I've just purchased Unreal Gold and have made it through the first 3 levels. However I've picked up quite a few flares and have no idea how to operate them. They don't seem to appear as a weapon. Can someone please instruct me as to how these are used? Also, is there a command similar to that in QII where you can see an inventory of what you have?

Why does everyone compare Unreal/UT to Q2/3 :o

Check your keybinds in the configuration menu. You can freely set one key for seeing the invintory. Then you need to keys to switch trough it, and a fourth activate an item.

The torches are listed on the inventory NOT as weapons.

How do I get to the configuration menu. I thought I read somewhere that the return key activates an item. But when I tried using the return key immediately after picking up a flare, it just brought up the new message readout. Can I adjust this in the customize controls section?

hehe. Been a long time since I last played Unreal *sigh*

Yes I mean the "customize controls" section.
Your translator (note: I almost put "translocator" here ;)) is activated when you press Enter because it is the default item :)
