Auto Spotting Tool/Macro?


I saw a youtube video of someone using some type of auto spotting tool.

First, I presume it's legal and not considered "hacking."

Second, what exactly is it? Is it something I can create myself by modifying a file or is something that has to be downloaded?

Mashing Q probably gives you the same result.

It often helps if you provide some source material ...

LIKE A YOUTUBE LINK ...

Because i have no idea what you are talking about.
It could be a Q bot,
Memory Hack,
periodic Key macro,
Manipulation of game data...

Take your pick..

Lol.

Yeah, I'll try and find it again. I think it was from Sony's forums and someone was posting impressions of TR's guns and a comment was made about the spotting done in the video and the video creator mentioned he was using an auto spotting tool.

again... the stupid spot function...

yes i am interested in a q bot as well, for i just don´t like having to press a key all the time. i need this finger for more important keys, but without pressing q i can´t see any enemies.

Spotting should be automatic anyway I think. If you put your sights on an enemy for 1-2 seconds (not instantly), it should spot them.

The whole mashing Q idea is stupid.

I tired that actually, it doesn't work too well. If there is a friendly anywhere near your crosshair it will zoom in on them instead of the enemy and open the squad/friend/ignore menu.

If you're left handed the Q button is no where near any hand so you have to remap it somewhere close to the cursor key, and I've pretty much used up all the handy ones.

The upshot is, I don't use it.

Ya, I tried it ages ago (Bind Q and fire to mouse 1). Same problem with friendlys around. It will get you killed.

Reasons why I slide the voice over volume to 0:

1.Q spam.
2. lol hit sounds.
3. I don't care THAT much about the state of the generators, etc.

"Nuisance" would be a great word to describe these things. I'd rather have actual people talk about these things and have actual people devise strategies to deal with the issues.

Why anyone would want a Q spam macro is beyond me.

I agree that the "q" spam design is bad design.

Its never good to make optimal game play require a boring mindless repetitive motion.
It actually bad.

I think the G13 can be programmed to repeat a keystroke until commanded to stop.
