I am using WASD keys to move my avatar. I enabled this in the Firestorm Viewer by checking the checkbox at: Avatar => Preferences => Move & View => Movement (tab) => Pressing letter keys affects movement A combination of WASD keys can be used for diagonal movements with respect to the direction the avatar is facing in mouselook. These directions are: W & A: forward left W & D : forward right S & A: rear left S & D : rear right Because I use these in Gorean combat I have done what most combatants do, and edited Firestorm's keys.xml file so I can use my thumb to crouch, and thereby be shielded, using the spacebar. This was done by changing the element: <binding mask="NONE" key="SPACE" command="stop_moving"/> to <binding key="SPACE" mask="NONE" command="push_down"/> (The attributes in the above elements might not be in the order as given above. This order is not important) In the two places it appears there, which are under the elements: <first_person>, and <third_person>. I find that in crouch by spacebar I can use WASD keys to move diagonally forward left, and forward right. But while in crouch the movements to rear left, and rear right, do not work. My avatar does not move at all while attempting these rearward diagonals. Why will this not work? Is there a solution to this? Is this expected, or a Firestorm Viewer bug? In crouch the S key alone does work to move to the rear. Using the arrow keys I am able to move on the rearward diagonals while in crouch. But this is not an acceptable solution.
Hello, Apologies if this is in the wrong forum, I looked for a while and couldn't find anything specific to Firestorm. This is also a non-technical question, so don't give me grief for my phrasing, and no lectures from the boys in the room about how I'm doing everything wrong ... ok? :-) Okay, so I'm on a Mac and it used to be that pressing the Fn + Up would make me do a handstand, and pressing the Fn + Dwn would make me crouch. Super handy! Since I started using the Firestorm built in AO last year, both of those functions are gone, but I don't see anywhere in the AO interface where I can trigger a crouch or a handstand, (probably because FN+Dwn now equals "fly"). I can do without the handstands, but crouching is hard to leave in the past. Is there nowhere in the Firestorm AO where I can click a button to crouch? A keyboard shortcut?
