    Hi,
    I'm new to scripting, but I was thinking about making a Qscript that would kill the engine when a button is pressed (say 'K')
    Which int corresponds to which letter in:
    Code:
    is key <int> pressed
    I'm hoping to use something like this (I'm aware of how ugly this code is..):
    Code:
    for 'eternity'
    {
      is key K pressed
      {
          send stop engine to console
      }
    }
    Could anyone please guide me in the right direction?
    Thx in advance!

    Just make the S key a toggle for engine start/engine stop.

    Racer used to do this, if the engine was running S would shut it off, or was it shift s?

    I can't remember but it's best as a toggle I think...?!

    Hmmm

    Been trying to get the script to work, but without success.
    • I've recompiled the script just in case..
    • racer.ini says that scripts are autoloaded
    • I have tried 'reload scripts'
    • I've changed my keyboard layout to English
    • Tried with Alt+088
    I have no ideas left.. I guess that you don't need a loop in the rsx-file? It acts like a trigger?
