How do i train myself to stop saving instead of loading?
« on: October 06, 2022, 02:09:29 PM »

I've pressed F5 now like 3 times when I wanted to load the latest save, I just messed up big time and will have to either backtrack about an two of progress or bite the bullet. I rarely play games where I need to remember saving progress so this has been pretty difficult for me.

Reassign quicksave to a different key.

Change Quickload button to F8 and put finger in gaps before pressing them.
Pay attention on which side of your finger button resides before you press it
(Started doing it after accidentally quicksaved with 5hp right before ubersoldaten boss battle in RtCW. That was "fun", but I somehow managed.)
F5-F9 combo is pretty bad, since both buttons reside on the right side of your finger.
F5-F8 is better since save is on the right side, while load is on the left side, so it feels different and, after you get used to it, should give you a pause if you're about to press wrong button.
At least it helped me, but then again I've been doing this for a while.

Clearly, we learn by suffering. ;)

F5 & F9 are not unique to Starsector, lots of games use them. Better to get used to it rather than changing it, imo.

Ah, suffering of not being able to remap QS&QL buttons...
