Modder turns GW2 into a true action combat game

CookieTimeCookieTime SomewherePosts: 353Member

This reddit thread was made about 4 days ago, but I'm surprised it didn't get more attention. Apparently, a modder made a few tweaks to the client that offered new ways to play GW2.

http://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/zy752/combat_mode_02_beta/

 

I'm making this topic to spread the word, so that ANet would give this idea a chance and maybe implement this option into the game itself, since using mods is not allowed. I'm sure this can happen if enough people voice their interest.

IMO, the best change is the elimination of holding the right mouse button, which makes my hand hurt after a while of playing.

Here's also a demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpdgW_G4FyU

    Considering it uses Autotargeting and Autocasting it would not recomend any one using this...

    I really wish they added that option ingame I hate how I have to hold right click on 90% of the occasions during playtime.

     

    @Above

    Considering auto target and auto casting are guild wars 2 features I fail to see your reasoning.

    Both of those things are already in game. The only difference is that you don't have a corsair. Center a mob in your screen and use a skill and it will auto-target that mob if you enable that setting. You can also enable "fast ground casting" or something like that, so GTAoE instantly casts wherever your mouse is when you press the skill button.

    All he's really done is locked the mouse pointer in the center, removed it visually, added a corsair and "locked' the right mouse button so it's constantly pressed down.

     

    I would love to see something like this being added to the game.

    I think its a job well done to be honest.IMO combat in GW2 is a weak point,i much prefer Tera and RaiderZ

  • kabitoshinkabitoshin Posts: 758Member Uncommon
    This really looks like all he did was ad a crossair in the middle of the screen, cause sometimes when he shoots at the target he's not even turned to it. And If you think that tera has better combat, play the ranger I got annoyed terribly by the knock back and have to run up back the to target. The only classes on that game that where remotely somewhat fun was zerker and slayer.

    How the combat should have always been.

    Ranger was my main lol,zerker and warrior were atls,yup Tera combat is way ahead just like raidersZ.
    I actually played all classes.

    An official on the forums already said this was illegal to use (as any mod anyway).

    Use at your own risk...

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

    Other than a corsair I think you can program your Naga/gaming mouse to do the same.

    Mod all you want, the game is still a tab-targeting hotkey mmo ;)

    I would absolutely love to have this implemented. I do have a problem with carpal tunnel syndrom and find it extremely hard (painful) to have to use the right mouse button to be able to move efficiently. This is really what is missing in GW2 (which I love, btw)

    Your not gaming enough if it hurts :P

    jokes aside, personally i wouldn't play it like that. I am more of an old fashioned guy when it comes to controls

    I was wondering also.  Figured maybe it was some gamepad hardware that I'd never heard of.

    I thought this mod was not allowed?

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    Looks fine, but they are already trying to fight bots and illegal macro systems being used right now..

    That's probably the only reason it has not been approved as of yet and may not be, depending on the overall bot situation and if they can get it under control..

    Allowing third party programs is just inviting the game to be overrun by illegal modifications..

    Since mods are not allowed in game, read your EULA, this is a permaban offense.

    Yes, and that is why we are discussing/asking/hoping it will be addition to the official game

  • JyiigaJyiiga Seneca, SCPosts: 1,041Member Uncommon

    The direct download links have been taken down. The author of the mod is consulting Anet. As current policy stands they would treat this no differently than a third party botting program. 

    They do not allow mods. As others have stated above, this is a bannable offense at this time. 

  • 9ineven9ineven SomewherePosts: 153Member Uncommon

    This is not a mod.

    The game is not touched. It's just rebinded keys and a .png picture in the middle of the screen.

     

    If they don't allow that kind of stuff then they can ban almost all good mouses and keyboards drivers with which you can create macros.

     

    This thing is not even using macros.

  • IndromeIndrome NortheimPosts: 292Member

    Amazing effort, I hope ArenaNet implements the option for the people that want it.

    Personally, I couldn't stand having to look down to place my AoE skills. The combat is good the way it is in my opinion. (The video only shows combat against VERY slow and fairly easy to beat opponents. I would like to see this played out against a very agile veteran mob for example.)

    We knew that.  I hoped a Corsair was in the works, though I knew it was really unlikely.  :D
