Shortcut keys for weapons the same as for dialogs.

Postby DrNoid » Sun Sep 16, 2012 10:07 am

I was using the Ion Blast II In a fight, meaning I was pressing 1 every few seconds. Right before one of my 1 presses a dialog pops up. I'll never know what it said, because I pressed 1 to target my weapon, and since the dialogs use the same shortcut keys for choice selection I ended up choosing dialog option 1.

My suggestion: Change the shortcut keys for either the dialogs or the weapons to something else so this doesn't happen.

Happened to me too, and briefly saw I missed a blue option

This has been acknowledged by the devteam over on getsatisfaction. It seems they'll be dealing with it.

It happens to me to every now and then, but hasn't been too much of a problem...usually just means I accept a surrender. Annoying, but not fatal :)
