  • How to Alter Keybindings for the Warthog Special

    For the most part, altering the keybindings for the Warthog Special profile is a much easier process, as for this we are using Voice Attack's built-in Joystick Support. This means that although the keybindings both in Voice Attack and in-game are set to keyboard controls, they can easily be duplicated onto the joystick buttons - meaning very little keyboard interaction is actually needed! You may still wish to alter your keyboard settings to make the few keys not assigned to the Warthog that little bit easier to reach, in which case you may want to check this guide out. But for now, let's take a look at modifying the Warthog's controls.

    The first thing you will want to do is check out the photo map for the Warthog, included in your Profile/Binds folder. This details every keybind currently used, and will make it easier for you to decide where you want to re-map your keys. Again, we will look at the Landing Gear command:

    Luckily this is the ONLY command we have to look at! "Deploy Landing Gear" and
    "Retract Landing Gear" do not need to be changed.

    Now simply hit OK and you're all done. That's how easy voice Attack makes it to alter your Warthog Special bindings! As with altering the keyboard bindings, you will need to make sure you do not have any double-bound buttons.

    Thank you for reading, and fly safe, Pilot!
