Quick Action Menu
The Quick Action Menu has been rebuilt from the ground-up in LCPDFR 1.0d. Your feedback told us that while the QAM was a very useful new feature, it was difficult to use in certain circumstances and the interface design left a lot to be desired.
Now, the QAM takes on an entirely new design, based on vertical scrolling and separation of options into groups.
Weâ€™ve added a bunch of new options to the QAM as well. Those familiar with the earlier versions of LCPDFR might remember being able to make their character speak by pressing some keys on their numpad. This has been reintroduced to LCPDFR in 1.0d, but is now contained within the new QAM group for â€˜Speechâ€™
The QAM is now arranged into the following groups:
Plus, with the addition of multiple partners in 1.0d, thereâ€™s two partner subcategories: primary and secondary, which can be used to give orders to specific partner groups.
The QAM can now also be used to request all kinds of backup available. We thought this would be particularly useful for players using game console controllers.
How to Use
The QAM menu is brought up in the same way, by pressing and holding Caps Lock (Left Thumb on an Xbox 360 Controller). From there, you can move the mouse vertically to highlight options. To select the highlighted option, release your hold of the Caps Lock key. Selecting â€˜Cancel Menuâ€™, which is always the first and default option in the QAM, will simply hide the menu again.
To navigate between categories within the menu, simply press Tab (LB and RB on an Xbox 360 Controller). This will allow you to cycle through all categories. If hidden and then brought up again, the QAM will show the options of the last visible category.
The Partner category is special - it has two subcategories within it for the primary and secondary partner groups. By default, selecting an option from the Partner category of the QAM will result in the option applying to all partners. Alternatively, you can use the middle mouse button (Right Thumb on Xbox 360 Controller) to cycle between the secondary and primary partner groups. In this case, the option will only apply to the selected partner group.
