Hey all,

I was just wondering, How many of you have either a Logitech G15, or G19 and use it while playing jj2?
Anyone interested in JJ2 support for the keyboard's screen? What should it show?

Think it's unfair if ppl with a G1* keyboard could see, e.g, all their ammo without switching?

Use the poll and/or discuss, and if there is demand for it I might code something... emo

note: this is NOT only about my upcoming 1.25. This is about the current jj2 as well.


Nostalgia warning, well, at least if you're one of those ppl...

Sounds like it could do very little damage, eventhough I haven't really heard of any such keyboards xd

Yeah, I thought so. Still, I wanted to hear the opinion of the ones who actively play the game, as I'm not wanted to accidently release anything radar-like emo

The info i could use most atm, is what to display. Ammo count? time left before unfreeze/unblink? coins/diamonds/food eaten? all ideas are welcome.

The Logitech G Linup are a series of mice and keyboards designed especially for gamers. The ones I'm focusing on are the keyboards with screens, the G15 and G19.

I myself own a g19:


These keybaords have only official windows drivers atm, though there are a few unofficial linux ones out there, of which I'm using this one:

I dislike screens so would not view unmirrored keyboard screen.

I have one, and even with the sun right behind me reflection isn't much of an issue.

Still, just wait a few decades and I'll make jj2 playable on a hologram so you'll never need screens again.

It can't do much harm but I don't see any point in wasting the time to do it if its done purely for the JJ2 community, as I don't expect many (if any) people to have such a keyboard.

Yeah, another purpose of this poll was checking if there is anyone with one of these who would use it.

I'll just add this to 1.25, and if someone wants it for vanilla jj2 just contact me.

ok, time to code.

Ammo count?

Sounds fine to me. I believe that most players realize at least approximately how much ammo they have (at least those who don't use anti auto weapon change programs) so that shouldn't do any harm.
Quote:
time left before unfreeze/unblink?

Unfreeze wouldn't be very useful. Feel free to add it but I don't see how anyone would need it. I wouldn't even have time to look at it during the half a second of freeze time. Unblink could be very misleading because there can be differences between its value for a client and a host.
Quote:
coins/diamonds/food eaten?

Coins sound fine, gems sound useless (they're only used in treasure hunt and you always know how many you collected there). I'm against food because regular players don't know how much they've eaten.

Wouldn't that be a huge cheat?

no, maybe a huge hit.
