Hey--where is my ammo?
« on: September 09, 2002, 02:33:53 PM »
I know that this probably should be in the “Bug Report” thread but most of you seem to be in here.  

So last night I’m flying with some fellow Knights… one of them comes on range channel and says his trigger just “jammed” up on him and he couldn’t stop firing until he went bingo. He thought it was fluke… so I tell him that I had the exact same thing happen to me a few days ago… all of a sudden 3 other Knights chime in with “ditto…”

So—I guess, I’m just wondering if anyone else is having this problem, and if so is it a known issue?


Thanks!

Same thing happened to me once...it was a book leaning on the keyboard depressing the "F" button.

Nope.. I double checked everything--including the "F" button on the keyboard--the FE just seemed to be registering a trigger pull.

I've had it happen to me on a numbe rof occasions this year: I usual manage to stop it by hitting fire a few times.
I was assuming it was problems with my joystick.

This has been happening to me since the latest patch. I, like Pei, thought it was my joystick getting glitchy.

Hmmmmm...

X36 HOTAS, CH Pro pedals, Windows XP... in case that helps.

I've had this happen prior to the last patch and version.  Usually a quick view change solves it.

Its annoying to say the least.

Once out of the few times it's happened to me was irremediable; the other times it was after pressing secondary fire on a >1 salvo, and switching to another secondary weapon before the salvo ended. It unjams after you let the salvo finish.
If it's the same problem for the primary fire, the one time it happened, there was nothing to cycle to and back from, and pressing the prim fire button didn't help.

Wonders? It's ugly, it's a mess! There are so many little funny things in the keyboard that even maybe talk to you when shaking them out.
I read an article that there are more germs in a keyboard than at the toilet - delicious

Yep...happened to me with the cruiser gun this morning.  Several salvoes fired off by themselves, 'til I pointer clicked on a different target.  First time that's happened.

hmmm... I've never had this problem.  Do you guys have the "default" gun selection for your primary trigger?  Or do you have "N" mapped to it like I do?

If you don't try mapping N to it and see if that helps.
(You'll have to map f to another button to use that)  I've got X45 Saitek, primary trigger is N and the throttle D button is F in Mode 2.  Works nice that way.
