How to use cycleRadar & cyclePanel

The new cycleRadar key binding allows you to specify multiple levels of radar zooms and they will be cycled through with a single key. This option was added to assist gamepad style controllers in changing radar zooms easily.

Code: Select all

bind 6 down "cycleRadar 0.25 off 1 0.5"
The new cyclePanel key binding allows you to cycle through all of the tabs in your console (including turning it off, if desired); added to assist gamepad style controllers to navigate the console.

Code: Select all

bind 7 down "cyclePanel right_off" # cycle to the next tab, then off, then around to the beginning
bind 8 down "cyclePanel left" # cycle to the previous tab, then around to the end
The full Changelog is also available.
