Aliases

Bind these commands to the keys of your choice:

Command Description
hailtog Switches the mode of your keyboard from weapon groupings to hails and back. Miharu suggests using the 0 (zero) key by typing /bind "0" hailtog in your console, or bind "0" hailtog in your wgaf.cfg file.
charHailA, charHailB Where it says <CharA> or <CharB>, replace that with the name of the character whose hails correspond to the A or B sets.
A_hail1 to B_hail9 Where "<Insert message here>" is typed, put in a message of your choice. Don't worry about binding these to keys, the toggle takes care of that. Also, keep hails prefixed with "A_" for your first character, and those with "B_" for your second.
hailmsg This is your standard, basic hail. To change it, either go into the Controls menu and change it there, or use /set hailmsg <your message> to change it manually within the console.

Notes and Tips

  • If you want your hails to use two messages, then use the template for the first six hails. For a single messages hail, use the last four.
  • Don't use contractions or apostraphes (') in the message of the bind; it will interrupt the hail just before the location of the apostraphe and cut off the rest. Use backticks (`) instead.
  • Have at least one or two single-message hails for use with NPCs and NPC capital ships; they will respond to both of your messages if they contain more than one line.
  • Use this if you have two characters that need different hails.
