TTT / MOAT Binds! The ultimate guide!

1 post in this topic

Hello so first off, im a player with over 25 days of playtime on moat and over 3500h in garrysmod, since ive gotten staff on moat ive realised alot of players dont know how to bind in garrysmod/ttt/moat.  So i decided to write this so people can just be directed here if they need help with binds.

1. Using the F1 menu! 
The default binds such as "wildmonkei is a traitor!" "wildmonkei is innocent" "Yes" "No".

Can easily be bound using the menu accesible by pressing the F1 key on your keyboard, usually located just above the keys 1 and 2. You might have to hold down the FN (function key) on your keyboard for this to work, depends on what keyboard/what setting u have on it.

This menu is good if you simply want binds that can be used for gameplay.

2. How to enable and use the console!

Before you get to binding your fancy new custom messages together with your callouts you need to enable the developer console, here is how:

2.1. Boot up Gmod and open settings.

2.2. Your press advanced.

2.3. You enable "developer console" by clicking the box on the new advanced window that has popped up.

2.4. You select a keybind for the console at the bottom of the "keyboard" section of the options window. Simple click on "toggle developer console" and hit you bind and it will show up, mine is bound to / which on my keyboard layout corresponds to ½ or §. ( i have heard its usually the ~, its located on the left of 1 and above tab.

3. Using the console to bind.

3.1 Basics

So a few basics on the console, u open it with the previous set keybind and type the command u want to run, you do not need to put anything before the command and this is not a chat. 

DO NOT RUN COMMANDS YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND. You can by using the console unbind all your buttons and close the game.

3.2 What are the keyboard buttons called.

Here is a picture that shows what u put in console as the key you want to use for u fresh new bind:

DISCLAIMER, if your keyboard has special macro keys or if you use a diffrent keyboard layout, above image may not be correct. For macro keys i would recommend rebinding them to any of the numpad keys inorder for them to work properly while binding in gmod.

If you at any point make a mistake with a bind you can simply use the command unbind t
this will unbind all commands from the key T, please beware though as this command can be used to get rid of keybinds made in the options of gmod aswell as getting rid of all your binds if used incorrectly.

The commands we will be using in this guide is mainly "Bind", "TTT_radio" and "say"

Bind, the command used to assign a key to a console function(command)

ttt_radio, the command that the TTT gamemode uses.

say, this is a command that tells the console to send what is put after it into chat.

3.3 How to bind:

If you want to make your key for "wildmonkei is a traitor" also include a custom chat message such as "KOS KOS KOS!" in order for it to be more easy to notice in chat.

You simply run the command:

Bind T "ttt_radio traitor ; Say KOS KOS KOS!!!"

I will break this command down in order for you to be able to elaborate on this.

bind, see above.

T, is the key i want to bind this command to-

The " ", opens and closes the command

ttt_radio traitor, calls out "wildmonkei is a traitor"

the ; marks the beginning of a new command you want to run at the same time as the other one.

Say, see above.

KOS KOS KOS!!! is simply the message you want to display in the chat.

3.4 ttt_radio commands

Okay by now you probably understand the basics of binding. i will leave some useful commands specific to ttt here:

TTT_radio imwith

TTT_radio suspect

TTT_radio traitor

TTT_radio innocent

TTT_radio check

Use these in combination with what i showed above to customize messages to go with the binds.

4. Useful moat specific binds.

Bind m "say !menu" 
This bind opens up the moat menu, where u can boost maps, check playtime and if staff do alot of super duper secret staff commands.

If you experience any issues u can bind mga_menu1, mga_menu2 or mga_menu3 as console commands, depending on ur screen resoultion, only use 3 if u got 4k monitor.

Bind p "inspect" 
This bind lets you inspect the gun youre holding or if in FIRST PERSON (r while spectating) spectating somone view the stats and talents of that persons gun.

Bind k "kill"
Simply kills yourself ingame,

Bind L "say {loadout}"
This displays your currently equipped loadout in chat.

Bind v "stopsound"
Stops all currently playing sounds, event round music/ambient noise of maps, good if u want to tryhard and figure out where people are walking/shooting.

Bind h "ttt_radio imwith ; say ID OR KOS!"
A bind to use in order to ask people to id bodies to avoid getting slain if u see somone kill a person and u want them to ID.

Bind t "ttt_radio traitor ; say KOS KOS KOS"
A simple KOS bind including "wildmonkei is a traitor"

Bind b "ttt_radio imwith ; say Stop following/blocking me (warning 1/2/3)
A bind to use when you want somone to stop following you.

5. ENDING
