Hotkey for scanning the OW horizon, please?


Recommended Posts

On long delivery passages, I like to keep the game in windowed mode.    Ideally, I'd like to have the viewpoint rotate automatically, but would settle for a hotkey that advanced the perspective 45* CW or CCW.   

With a hotkey, i could automate a rotation with something like AutoHotKey.

Have not succeeded in automating the click & drag with that tool for NA, or I wouldn't make this request.    (Maybe someone else has?)

If i teach you how, you can do so much more so i wont.

 

the software you need is long not available. it is enterprise level suite used in industry of scale usually. not sure it even runs on win10

 

it was a personal hobby of some of us to automate those popular browser games back in the day. results were... insane to say the least

Not sure I understand you, Boaty.   Is there a way today?

Don't worry about teaching me too much.  I'm the one that automated discovery of all the OW ports when OW first came out (2015?   2016?)  , logged their co-ords and made a map.   That autopilot even could report our clan's locations to a live map on a central server.    Odds are I know a bit.

I can make it work with AHK (forgot that it has to be the right button in OW), but of course it interferes with other use of the mouse at the same time - blocking input, moving the mouse, then moving it back to where it was is klunky.    I don't suppose AutoMate has a way around that.   

But, if the game supported a hot-key enabled automatic rotation of the camera angle around the ship, that would work very well.
