Make Spells Case Insensative

Post by Ceros » 04 Sep 2009, 06:17

I use CapsLock for auto targeting closest enemy when casting and having spells rejected because #inma isn't the same as #INMA is really annoying. Any way to make #INAM, #INma and #inma all do the same thing? (It is also nice to be temp banned for spamming when this happens while healing in the skull room).

The whole improvised magic system on eAthena is a usability nightmare anyway. TMWServ will be point&click with optional keyboard shortcuts.

IMO, there's nothing wrong with using caps lock as long as you are paying attention. It's when your attention is elsewhere, making you AFK that it becomes a problem. And setting target enemy to caps lock wouldn't do anything if you were away, anyway.

Personally, I don't use caps lock, but I don't see a problem with it if you are watching the game. It's just improvising the shortcuts to make gameplay more comfortable.

Back to topic: I don't have any suggestions, but I think case insensitive is a good idea

It seems people are assuming that I am not in front of the keyboard while playing - this is not the case.

Also, see this, as was posted by Turmfalke in the multiboxing thread:
(21:44:23) Freeyorp: On the topic, what's the official word on FK bots?
(21:44:36) b_lindeijer: What are FK bots?
(21:44:42) Kage_Jittai: Front of Keyboard
(21:44:49) Kage_Jittai: People who watch them self bot
(21:44:50) Freeyorp: Someone is using a script, but is still present
(21:45:11) b_lindeijer: Uhm, the official word there is that it's allowed.
(21:45:14) Freeyorp: paying attention, even though it isn't them 'pushing the buttons'
(21:45:45) b_lindeijer: It's not forbidden to automate the boring tasks in the game.
(21:45:54) b_lindeijer: It's just forbidden to be active in the game while not being there.
