disable use key?

Postby Samuel Pondlespear » Fri Jan 01, 2021 4:06 am


Finally managed to get GZDoom working with ZDL to play Dynamic Doom (also tried Arachnotron launcher but that didn't do anything).

I'm quite happy with it, apart from the fact that it forces me to press the Use key for picking up items. Having to look down to pick up every single thing is really getting on my nerves, is there any way to disable this please?

I looked on youtube, read the wiki, tried searching the forum for the answer (got too many results) but found no solution as of yet.

Thank you!

It's hard-coded into the mod itself. You'll have to alter whatever the mod is doing so it doesn't do that.

(Looking at some gameplay video it looks like something's checking for the player pressing the Use key and then setting the +PICKUP flag accordingly. Change that so the playerpawn always has +PICKUP and that should address it.)

Here's a quick & dirty fix that should work. It's a simple event handler that gives players an item that constantly sets the +PICKUP flag. Simply load this alongside your other mods, voila; all weapons and pickups are picked up automatically.
