How to keybind spells?

Postby Einherje » Sat Apr 20, 2013 6:26 am

I've recently beaten BG1 and BG2 with a couple of friends - good times! Playing a spellcaster I found it absolutely essential to have all my spells bound to specific keys in order to ensure a fluent multiplayer experience though (i.e. minimizing the use of the pause button), but this seems impossible in IWD2?

If anybody knows how to keybind spells, please let me know. If this is impossible, then I'm very interested to hear what you guys do in multiplayer when playing spellcasters? =)

Sorry I don't know the answer. Just posting so you know people have read your post.
Right Speech has four aspects: 1. Not lying, but speaking the truth, 2. Avoiding rude and coarse words, but using gentle speech beneficial to the listener, 3. Not slandering, but promoting friendliness and unity, 4. Avoiding frivolous speech, but saying only what is appropriate and beneficial.

I don't think you can...unlike the other Infinity Engine games, Icewind DAle 2 lacks the key binding option in the config menu, as well as the relevant entries in the keymap.ini.

Your only option is to bind your most often used spells to the usually available hotkeys in the game (by right-clicking on the buttons), I'm afraid.
