A place/Map to go to do dummy runs would be very useful, a place where you can try all these things on target ships. I know a CooP game is as near as damn it, but I mean where you have no team to worry about.

Press ALT (or you can make it permanent in the Settings screen).

Please excuse me if I have missed the answers to these control questions:

 

When I am zoomed in using the scroll wheel, is there a quick way to quickly zoom out?

 

When I am controlling airplanes, what is the best screen to use for targeting ships?  I usually select my torpedo planes then hit the space bar.  In this view the chat commands clutter up the left side of the screen.  How do I get rid of those?

The [Shift] key will toggle back and forth between your last zoom and no zoom.

 

As far as Airplanes go, I'm not an expert but I believe the space bar centers your view on your ship.  I'd use the Shift key to change focus  to an overhead view and pan to where your target is.  Your mouse wheel should let you adjust the zoom.

 

See View Basics  and look up Standard Navigation View (View 7) and Carrier Plan View (View 12).

 

It would probably be helpful to read one of the carrier guides. I fear I'm better with destroyers and cruisers.

I'm handicapped after a massive stroke and use a Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse. Your listing has helped greatly in toward my ability to (what I believe is properly assign the commands to the G-Buttons).

 

Here is what I've come up with for anybody interested.

There is some duplication for ease of use in hitting dual key combinations:

 

LMB > unchanged > unassigned per se

RMB > unchanged > unassigned per se

RFMB 3rd mouse button particular to the G600 ( > G-Shift >Haven't identified a need for it.

Scroll Wheel L Tilt > Shift to use w/ LMB

Scroll Wheel R Tilt > M > Tactical Map Toggle

G8 > P > Toggle AA Batteries

G7 > Cntrl > Control to use w/ LMB

G9 > A > Port

G10 > W > Ahead

G11 > D > Starboard

G12 > A  > Port

G13 > S > Back

G14 > D > Starboard

G15 > R > Consumable

G16 > T > Consumable

G17 > Y > Consumable

G18 > Shift > To Use w/ Guns Lock

G19 >  X > Guns Lock / Torpedo Lead Indicator

G20 > Cntrl > To Use w/ Guns Lock

 

I have not assigned ny functions to the buttons utilizing the G-Shift Feature of the mouse since  I believe the carrier Squadrons may be selected utilizing the "Cntrl" + Mouse  Over + Left Click.

Please correct me if anybody feels I've missed anything as far as in game controls for any of the air or water craft in game... or if anybody by chance (never by chance LOL purposefully!!!) has a better/working G600 setup.

 

Thank you in advance.

Quaffer? I don't seem to be able to use the FFWD/FFRW controls during replays atm. Any ideas on where I might find the changes listed?

 

IF you really want to look na.warshipstoday.com/signature/1014514347/dark.png or http://static.wows-n.../1014514347.png

I will review the files for the 5.15 patch after I review the maps, there are 11 to look at this time.

 

I admit this thread is over due for an update.  I don't look at replays so I don't have a good way of verifying the controls.
