I keep dieing because of misclicks

Postby Melichar on Wed Aug 31, 2011 7:11 pm

I'm a diablo player, I'm always constantly clicking to avoid attacks, run patterns, whatever ;p. But is there anyways can get like a "Stand Still" Button, like left shift button to allow you to click on the squares, maybe give more tactical information, or just allows me to click on the squares i wanna see ;p It's hard to break a 13 year habit :D

That's....actually a good idea. Doesn't change the current behavior at all. I'm all for this even though I probably wouldn't use it myself.

Plus maybe we can finally select an enemy, stay on his tab, and view his traits too...

One related problem is that the attack is activated on button down instead of button up.
I think most GUIs use activation on button up and if you realize mid-click that you hit the wrong button, you can just move the mouse away from the button before releasing the button and it won't activate.

Yeah, I slap myself everytime this happens because of how easy it is to avoid.

Impatience kills.

The action on button down is something I wish would change. Though I'm sure it's probably a lot more development than I think it would be. I got so used to the Alpha being action on button up. So often I click on an enemy and die instantly, where I wish I could just keep the button held and move out the way.

I play RTS with a 150 APM. Sometimes it's possible to not click all the time ;)

Easiest thing to do is just take your fingers off the buttons. Or spam right click. That does nothing.
