wish: adding next/previous hotkeys to hq view

Post by lvjtn » 2020-03-07 14:14, Saturday

request: when you play a scenario, there is a nice hotkey (<n>) cycling the units which haven't moved yet. it would be nice to have something similar for hq panel too

explanation: now i play a campaign, where upgrading a unit on a friendly sh is possible. afaik, this can be done only at hq. when the player has lots of similar units, it's harder t find which one can be upgraded. so i suggest to add either the <n> for hq view, or the left and rights arrows for moving to the previous/next unit:

alternate solution: a new hotkey for normal map view upgrading the selected unit (if possible), e.g. <ctrl>+<u>. however, cycling the units in hq view still can be useful (e.g. for manual refit/os in a no-auto-refit campaign)

Could you test 0.93.4.27.OGX ?

Up/Down/Left/Right cursor should allow to navigate units at HQ
I've not found any sample to test if it works fine when there are hidden lines (rows) in HQ

Not sure if i understand what you mean.
Example from Csaba's screenshot, there are 2 units in the sixth line. If i press the <down> arrow in the fifth or sixth line towards an empty tile, nothing happens. If however the cursor is on the last unit and i press the <right> arrow, the cursor jumps back to the first unit.

Sorry if you meant something different :fused

wow! i literally played a tobruk scenario, and my wish came true :banana :gracias :bow

for me, it works like a charm (up and down weren't really important, unlike a fast cycling for each units seeing which can be upgraded

Sorry for not writing more clearly what I meant :bonk

I meant that when there are many items in the HQ, the first implementation didn't scroll the list when clicking cursor right to go to the next unit.

Csaba sent me a sample scenario with lot of units, and now it is handled properly.
Can get 0.93.4.28.OGX to test.

Doesn't work on Win10, Luis could you look into it please.


Edit:
:doh sorry, i had an older OGX.zip too and unpacked that instead of the new one :o
However, <home> and <end> don't work for me, but i can live with that :yep


Edit2:
When pressing <right> arrow with last unit selected the cursor jumps to first unit. When pressing <left> arrow with first unit selected OG crashes.


Edit3:
<home> and <end> work when Deployment Window is open, jumping to first/last item.
Request: right now <up> and <down> arrows scroll a single page. Could <left> and <right> arrows scroll a single item please ?

Sorry for mixing topics :o

This was about Deployment Window (not HQ Window).
