    Default Pet keymapping

    Hi,

    Anyone know the mystery of the hireling bars for pets? I was unable to successfully keymap my pet's attack, trip and intim actions as I would normal hireling functions.

    Something is either wrong with the pet bar (buggy) or I'm missing something. The closest I could get was mapping button #1 on the pet bar, but no others would accept a mapping command.

    Ideas?

    /shameless self-bump

    This may be either a really good question or a really bad one...

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    It might have something to do with summoning an actual hireling. I discovered you don't really need one on an arty likely till something like lvl 10. (yes, even a fleshy) But had used one on in the same gaming session that I tried to figure out this problem.

    I had the same issue, but it self resolves. When you change/add a key map for your pet bar, it doesn't show up or function. I changed from defend me to active and the key mapping showed up and works great. It seems that you have to use another command on the bar to make the key mapping take effect. I hope this helps....

    So which bar is it? Hireling bar 1?

    So... you're saying:
    Change a bind on your pet bar, but attempting to use it will fail.
    If you were to actually SELECT a different "stance" for your pet, the pet bindings will then take effect

    Confirmed.

    Hireling bar 1 is your pet's bar, at least it is if he's the first thing you send out.

    In order for your bindings to "take effect" you must change the stance of your pet. Then you will SEE your bound key on the icon

    Glad it worked for you. I wasn't sure, since it was just me fumbling around trying to make it work. It seems we have a confirmed work-around!

    I like that there are enough geniuses (or monkeys?) in this game to try all the possible solutions and make it work. Hope the devs have this on the patch list.
