    When I try to use a 'OnRelease' action, it doesn't work...Can anyone help me with this?

    Also...How do you do a 'wait' in an alias?

    Thanks

    Thats what I mean...

    For example...

    GetWeapon Impacthammer | Fire | OnRelease GetBestWeapon

    doesn't do the onrelease

    I dont think you can alias three things together, just two.

    Or theres a problem with your 'fire', you need a wait command if there is one.

    OK...some things work...

    for example:

    GetWeapon Translocator | OnRelease SwitchToBestWeapon | OnRelease Behindview 0

    That works fine

    but something simple like

    Onrelease jump

    OR

    Onrelease Fire

    Or

    Onrelease Altfire

    None of those work, even with no other commands.

    Can anyone please offer some help here?

    I can't figure out why certain commands don't work with onrelease

    Ok, this is entirely a product of my own logic, so it may not be the real reason...

    The way I see it, the reason you can't bind the OnRelease with commands like Jump, Fire, AltFire is that these commands require that you press that button and HOLD it.

    OnRelease only sends one signal (which is such a small time interval that the game doesn't register it as holding the key down).

    The way to do it would probably be with a combination of OnRelease and Toggle commands (of course, you'd have to toggle it back somehow afterwards, with another key or a wait command, but I'm not sure UT has wait commands; if anyone knows of a wait command, let me know).

    There is no wait command (fortunately)

    For what it's worth, I have heard that the developers "prevented certain things from being aliased together" to limit the power of certain combinations. I also heard that many of these limitations involve movement, since they would reduce certain skill-related moves to just a war of who-has-the-best-script. This is the reason that's usually given in UT FAQ pages for why there is no way to assign the "dodge" command to an alias (as an example).

    Of course, I've never even got an alias to work in UT, so I may be wrong- hell, I'm STILL trying to find an alias that works to use the Translocator with one key (fire on key, teleport on key release)...

    Try |OnRelease Prevweapon That would get you the weapon you had before switching to the impact hammer. You can do more two things but maybe just not certain things. I would think that it would do the bind you wanted it to do though, try what i suggested and see if it works.

    Hmm, Striker... does that work for teletraining? I was trying to get an alias setup to do that.. but it never worked right... I used basically the same alias you have (without the last weaponswitch).. but if you keep pressing the bound key you just sit there firing x-loc and calling it back...
