    Is there anyway to combine jump/skate? Feels uncomfortable without it.

    any plans at all?

    I already know it's broken. That's why I brought it up. Just wondering if there is a plan to implement a fix.

    Probably not. In terms of development resources you're looking at a fair amount of changes to the physics system and testing to implement successfully, development time that instead be spent on fixing other parts of the physics system that are not so great right now. In addition, implementing jump skate would please a marginal hardcore group of tribes 1 players and ruin the heavily reduced learning curve of smooth skate for the new players who have never touched a tribes game before.

    Wouldn't it be possible to assign a keyboard command that would jump once and then skate?

    I was able to replicate a macro on my keyboard that performed the same function. In game I assigned jump to CTRL and skate to SPACE.

    The macro had three steps
    1. CTRL key down
    2. CTRL key up
    3. SPACE key down

    Worked like a charm. Only problem is I have to hit my function key and macro key on my keyboard at the same time to activate the macro which isn't very practical.

    As a T1 and T2a vet I would love to have a similar option in keyboard controls to assign to my spacebar.

    You could do that with autohotkey. Should be something like:

    ~*Space::Send {Control}

    thx Schreq

    but couldn't get it do do the trick

    It continuously jumps. Trying to get it were it jumps only once while I hold space to skate.

    Send {LControl down}
    Send {LControl up}
    KeyWait, Space
    Send {Space}

    It works but it feels wonky

    Edit: Tested and working for me:

       send {Control Down}
       sleep 1
       send {Control Up}
       keywait, Space

    Nothing to see really, it just jumps once when pressing skate, that's all.

    I've been looking for a way to do this, guess I'll have to get autohotkey.
