Sneak peek: custom F keys, presets!

Postby Mike » Tue Sep 05, 2017 7:16 pm

Considering they are relatively small updates, I decided to go ahead and do these two things that the community would certainly know to appreciate!

Custom F keys will be included in the next update, which is planned for later this week! The interface is relatively simple to use and similar to a lot of other games: simply click the current keybinding next to an icon and press a key on your keyboard to assign a new one!
Image

I couldn't manage to make an expandable drop-down box (like OSRS has), but the above approach should work just as well ;)

We'll even allow people to bind other keys to their tabs, such as Esc, Ctrl, Page Up, Page Down, Pause & Insert (basically whatever keys aren't otherwise used in the client).


Inventory & equipment presets will not be included in the next update, but I did go ahead and make the necessary save & load buttons for the bank interface already:
Image

There is still quite some server-sided code that needs to be written, so I'm not sure when presets will be released. We'll definitely want to release some QoL and wilderness updates before presets. But we'll see. At least all of the client-sided code is now present.

The usage will be relatively simple as well - clicking one of the 9 options on the Save button will store your current inventory & equipment as a template (you'll be prompted to enter a name for it), so you can restore them to the template by selecting the appropriate menu option on the Load button. Regular players will have 5 presets, donators 7 and premium members 9.

The system will even allow people to set a preset for only your inventory (so it does not change your equipment on load) by creating a preset without having anything equipped. The other way around works too - setting a preset only for your equipment by having nothing in your inventory.

I'll admit the buttons are not the fanciest and look a bit crowded, but I had to make them myself and pixel art has never been my strong suit. If anyone feels like having a go at making better preset buttons, be my guest ;) below are their current sprites if you need them.

It was jagex's answer to banning Ahk. Holding shift and clicking an item will drop it.

Cool, I didn't know that existed. Sure, we can make it happen. Maybe not in this update, but good thing you brought it up (I'm guessing that might be another overlooked in-game suggestions topic)

would be nice!

If you hold shift it will drop your item you select on the go. So you don't have to right-click and press 'drop'
