just bought a nicer gaming mouse...  tried to assign a mouse button for PTT  in teamspeak, chose the ~tilde

 

but it shows up in battle chat as a string of tildes if i'm talking while battle chatting 

 

i can't use Voice Activation because of a nagging cold, coughing and choking sounds horrible 

 

what do other folks use?

numpad period (with numlock off so it doesn't input a period) or ctrl usually

it could be assigned with the/an "ENTER" key causing it to go into game chat

just a rando guess

 


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

If you can easily reassign your keys, use the Insert key.  

It is never used for anything and visually is easily found on the keyboard during gaming since it is in its own "box" of keys on the keyboard.  No worries about compromising the purpose of another key either.  It's the appendix of keys on the board.

ok, back with more ptt issues...

 

i gave up on the super comfortable logitech g602, because the polling interval was grayed-out and couldn't be changed, for some reason    grrrr

 

i'm back with the wired Rat, which worked perfectly until i started messing around with the logitech

 

i run teamspeak, and use right shift as my ptt key     

 

 the TS ptt only works if i've started wowp  most of the time but not every time      i know, it's crazy

 

i have to run TS using 'voice activated', which is horrible for anyone who flies with me

 

there's so few usable ptt keys...

I found the issue. The mouse was in ENDURANCE MODE. Once I changed it, I was able to select the new polling rate.

 

i will begin re-testing the logitech tomorrow
