I was beating my brains out trying to figure out how to set up binds for my new shiny Peacebringer the other day, and somebody -- I forget who, sorry -- asked
that I share if I ever figured it out.

Well, I figured it out, and it is -pretty-.

What I've got here is a method to set up a single keybind that can change what it does after each press. I'm using it to switch into Bright Nova form
-and- reset my power tray, then switch back out of BN and set the power tray back to what it was before. Same key.

You need two text files stored on your local drive to make this work. I'm going to list their contents first, then the line you need to use to start the
whole thing off.

t "goto_tray 4$$powexec_toggle_on bright nova$$bindloadfile c:gamescityof~1covbindspbbn2.txt"

Quote: pbbn2.txt

t "goto_tray 1$$powexec_toggle_off bright nova$$bindloadfile c:gamescityof~1covbindspbbn1.txt"

And the line to start it off:

Quote: /bindloadfile "c:gamescityof~1covbindspbbn1.txt"

And that's it. All I have to do is tap T to switch to BN form, then tap T again to exit, and my trays are shuffled automagically.

That.... that's beautiful!

No, I really mean it, that's just -sublime-!

I gotta try this out...

There's a similar trick for WoW macros, and I'd just been wondering if you could do it in CoH... Thanks!

At one point I used that trick to make Nogi's Henches enact scenes from "The Princess Bide..."

Wow. I need this now that I'm experimenting with Peacebringers.

Then the horns kicked in...
...and my shoes began to squeak.

I've been using keybinds primarily for Mastermind control, but this is the first time I've really seen them expressly useful outside that AT.
