demo script help please

ok so i was screwing around and found that i could launch another pipe at the same time i would det with the script im posting below, but it wont stop shooting, and if i point the diff aliases at each other i will either be unable to det or to shoot again :/

alias det1 detto
alias det2 undetto
alias "detto" "+attack2;wait;+attack"
alias "undetto" "-attack"
bind "mouse2" "det1"

so basically what im looking for is sorta like the ol quickchange and fire scripts the soldiers used in tfc..use mouse1 to launch my pipes, mouse2 to det and launch new ones until i let go of it.

any help would be most appreciated.

Try a wait; after +attack or before -attack or a combination of both. Usually +attack always ends up glitching in a script unless you put some waits between it and -attack.

I just use
Code:
bind "mouse2" "+attack2; wait; slot5"  		// det pipes and instantly switch to greens
It dets pipes and switches back to grellow pipes. Then I just use mouse1 to lay more pipes.

I realized the original post never used det2 but aliased it, that might have been your problem. Anyway though, I made a smaller one that still works:

alias +det1 "+attack2;+attack"
alias -det1 "-attack;-attack2"
bind mouse2 +det1

4est: Your script never does -attack2 so you will never be able to det your pipes after the first time. Also, You could do a +attack;wait5;-attack; so it actually switches to pipelauncher . Otherwise it will just highlight slot5 and you will have to click to change, then click again to fire.

That should do it...his never called the -attack command b/c det2 wasn't ever used.

If you select quick weapon change in the options, it will change to the weapon by referencing slotX in a script, but your right that his won't let you det after the first time, until you do a -attack2...

should just be:

Code:
bind "mouse2" "+attack2; wait; -attack2; slot5"

Even that last bit of script you posted there won't work. You need at least 3-5 wait commands between +attack2 and -attack2 or it will stay +attack2 forever. Stick with 5 waits to be safe, 3 sometimes processes too fast on fast computers.

+attack2;wait5;-attack2.
alias wait5 "wait;wait;wait;wait;wait"

That will work fine, mainly because -det1 is fired on mouse release and as said earlier, lots of waits are needed for -attack2 to fire :>, might be more on low end computers.

I've used my script for at least 3-4 years now. I assure you it works.
