I've been playing with this, and found it was both very useful and very easy to set up, so thought I'd share it. It's basically just a simple app that lets you create super-simple buttons that map to key presses (and other inputs) on your PC. Zero technical skill required, and very useful. I think it's very useful in combat, where I really don't like using F-Keys (and don't have enough of them), but it could be really useful for other quality of life stuff too - like refilling scripts, common emotes, or toggling system settings like SVO's paralysis>asthma setting, etc. It just feels good to have a one-touch button to use for things like this.
Generally what you'll do is set a hotkey in mudlet and just map your buttons to your hotkeys (I use Control+F1 etc).
I am quite sure there are other apps out there better than this one, but it's so simple and easy to use I thought it'd be the best to demonstrate the idea as literally anyone can use this (on any type of smartphone). This one is a free app called Deckboard
, but there are many alternatives (I have another app called Lemur
which is usually used for digital instrument inputs like drumpads, that can also be used for Mudlet - which lets you build really advanced UI screens that change dynamically instead of just being static buttons you can push, but that one is like $20 and requires a lot more setup. There's another cheap/simple option called MATRIC
Hope it's useful for some of you.
