General Gameplay FAQ



For more specific help please visit this: http://forums.datarealms.com/viewtopic.php?f=72&t=12749

Please use search if you can't find help, before making a topic, chances are that someone has already asked the same question.
________________________________________________________________
Q: How to change your starting money/funds/gold?
A: This topic explains it pretty nicely: http://forums.datarealms.com/viewtopic.php?f=72&t=12749
________________________________________________________________
Q: How to pick up items?
A: When your near an item, right click and swing the cursor to the top of the pie/ring menu, it should say 'Pick Up [item name]", let go of the right click and it should pick up the item.
________________________________________________________________
Q: Aiming is difficult, why?
A: In Cortex Command, there is something called 'sharp aim', or for you CoD players out there, looking down the sight of the gun. However, this can only be achieved by standing still.
________________________________________________________________
Q: It's Hard to see on higher resolutions, is there a way to fix this?
A: Unfortunately no, Cortex Command was built for 640X480 resolution, however there is a 2x window option which should help you visibly see text better.
________________________________________________________________
Q: Is there only split screen play/Is there online play? :(
A: Yes, though there is a mod which allows you to play online, however buggy.
________________________________________________________________
Q: What are Activities?
A: It's a file used to define what ai spawns as their attacking force in skirmish scenario, many mods come with an activity file for their faction allowing you to fight against them in skirmish.
To use an activities file go into Base.rte and go down the PresetName = Skirmish Defence and under ScriptFile = Base.rte/Scenes/Scripts/SkirmishDefense.lua, change it to your mod's activity file.
This is of B24 where Lua is used for activities instead of the traditional ini.
________________________________________________________________
Q: Using more than one mouse?
A: This should explain it quite nicely http://forums.datarealms.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=10886&hilit=Using+Two+Mice
________________________________________________________________
Q: Why is B24 so unstable?
A: Honestly, I have no idea.
________________________________________________________________
Q: How do you change the controls?
A: You go to options and under your Player Number, change the type of controller to your preferred method, Classic Keyboard, Gamepad, or Mouse and Keyboard.
Then hit configure to assign your keys.

Done, and further research from me shows that activities are now fully coded from Lua, Sadface.

Lua isn't that hard if you have a basic notion of scripting/programming.
