Title: Fortnite | One button building
Post by: JaxCosmos on 12:46 AM - 03/11/18
So doing some searching on the forums, I have found that for one button building similar to PC requires a device called the Titan One or Titan Two. Before I am willing to drop $100 on the device, I was just wondering if this is correct. I am also curious to know the other functionalities of the Titan Two if someone is knowledgeable enough to share the information. Thanks.

I just received my APEX in the mail a couple days ago, and before that I was using the Titan Two exclusively to play Fortnite BR on PS4 for about a week since my transition from PC. The script I'm using allows me to map one-button building to my G502 perfectly the way I do on PC. I've just set up my APEX and T2 to work together tonight and I must say, it's a game changer. The Titan Two works perfectly well stand-alone for Fortnite, however the mouse input translator is FAR inferior to the APEX.

If you're looking to get a Titan Two for one-button building, definitely give it a shot. I can give you the script that I'm currently using as well. I hope this helps answer your question. Best of luck!

The Titans and Apex, dont work well together at this point in time, the creator of the titans   is still waiting on his apex to see what he can do to optimize them

My APEX and T2 are working perfectly in unison at this very moment. What you talking about willis?

Thanks for the help! I am definitely looking into getting the product now as I'm used to Fortnite on PC, but my friends play on console. The script would also be great to have, thanks!

Exactly why I purchased the T2, then eventually the APEX! My friends are all on PS4, and thought there's cross-play - they constantly had frustrations playing in lobbies with nothing but m+kb players in PC lobbies. I suck with a controller so once I found that script on the T2 forums, I was sold. Glad I can help!

Haven't created any macros for Fortnite, but I use a mouse with extra programmable buttons like the Swiftpoint Z rather than stacking multiple m/kb converters like XIM and other devices.  Less latency and problems that way.

So you have a T2 working with a Apex using a Logetic G502 mouse with single key building mapped to some of your mouse buttons or are they binded to your keyboard?

J2K will need to get ahold of an Apex to solve the USB desync at 500 and 1000Hz.

Other than that, they work perfectly together at 125 and 250Hz.

I'm currently running my Apex at 500Hz with no issues so far. Should I be concerned about this desync? What "symptoms" should I look out for?

I have one button building macros running well on my G903 onboard memory.
My front right thumb button builds a wall and returns to gun and the rear button builds stairs and one of the DPI buttons builds a roof/floor.

I just did them via Logitech's software, recording the delay between keypresses (won't work without the delays) while pressing them in sequence as quick as you can.

BTW, the right thumb buttons and others need to be bound to a keyboard key before the Apex recognizes them, for me at least.

Here is a screencap of my stairs macro in the Logitech software.
It's very easy to do.

This might be a much more efficient way of doing it than my method in all honesty. I'm not too familiar with the Logitech macros. I'm just not sure if you can actually mimic the building mechanics the same way with this method. For example, let's say you press your stairs button, but instantly want to build walls, then stairs again... does it work this way? I'm intrigued

What? I thought you can't use onboard memory for macros unless plugged in directly to computer?

Well, each build button is set to build and return to weapon. I can press the next button as soon as I see the weapon coming back out animation. If I press it before then the macro won't work. It all happens very quickly and I rarely hit the next button before the previous macro is finished.

I wouldn't say it replaces using the old building method if you are doing a multi-level base while not under fire etc, I would say these are more for the quick, panic, underfire building of walls and walls/stairs for cover and combat. I still sometimes use the old build method also, it's bound to my mouse wheel press.

While it's not PC direct bind level efficient it still works extremely well, especially for not having to buy/use an extra device. Give it a shot and see how you go. Remember when you are recoding your macros in the mouse software to record the delays also and press your key combos as quick as you physically can. It took me probably 4 or 5 goes to get it all timed the way I wanted it.

Hope you can get it working to your liking.
Much luck, bro. 8)

Yeah, I also read that, but it works perfectly on my G903.

Take a look at the Apex when moving your mouse when connected to T2 at 500+ Hz. It'll flash pink. That indicates USB desync and you're introducing input lag.

Dial Apex down to 250Hz, it'll feel smoother.


For reference, I believe Logitech macros will run one per button press. So rapid-fire and anti-recoil won't work, but Fortnite building should.

So what key do you have your mouses left click set to? That would excute the build of stairs in your screen shot.

No, sorry, I don't know of any youtube videos on the subject. Maybe do a search of youtube for logitech macros.


Wow, I guess I'll give it a try and see if it works. I'm using g502.

You definitely should, it's great to have instant wall available at a press.
Though, it must be said, having used these for longer now, there is the occasional weird response when pressing a macro button, but it's infrequent enough that it is far outweighed by the benefit of quick building.

So what key do you have your mouses left click set to? That would excute the build of stairs in your screen shot.

Sorry bro, I'm not quite sure what you're asking. My left mouse click is the default setting of fire.

So doing some searching on the forums, I have found that for one button building similar to PC requires a device called the Titan One or Titan Two. Before I am willing to drop $100 on the device, I was just wondering if this is correct. I am also curious to know the other functionalities of the Titan Two if someone is knowledgeable enough to share the information. Thanks.

If your mouse has on-board memory and support macros you don't need titan 1 or two. Im using Tt Ventus Z, mouse that supports 12 FULLY programable buttons, even macros that activates if you let a button press down (logitech does not support)

I started to play Fortnite days ago, I noticed the importance of building and I just finish 3 macros for one click build.

(https://i.imgur.com/n2r7Job.jpg)

IMPORTANT, First change the ingame setting: reset build = ON.

On my Button layout (PS4)

R2 = LMB (Left Mouse Button)
L1 = Left Arrow≤
R1 = Right Arrow
O (build) = E

≤ I use the Razer Orbweaver, Left and Right Arrow are in my thumb so is very easy for me to switch between items.

Fast Building:
Build Wall: press E, then I press LMB, let it down to keep building (ingame setting Turbo Build = ON) no macro needed.

BuildFloor Macro:
Press E(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms), then I press LMB.

BuildStairs Macro:
Press E(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms) then I press LMB and keep it down if I need more.

BuildPyramid Macro:
Press E(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms), then I press LMB.

Now I can build a box with stairs in seconds, like a veteran fortnite player and I have only 12 minutes of play LOL.

These macros are as simple/minimalistic as possible, they need that you manually press R2 to build the first piece and /or press build to exit from build mode if needed... there is a reason.

I did create a Onebutton->BuildOnePiece macro and exit build mode directly, and with theRepeat Macro While Button Press option of my mouse to have instant piece building...

...BUT server lag comes to play and messed up the macro. Longer timings fix it; but is no as efficient o reliable or faster as if you place the first piece manually and exit from build mode when needed.

OK hope it helps.

So doing some searching on the forums, I have found that for one button building similar to PC requires a device called the Titan One or Titan Two. Before I am willing to drop $100 on the device, I was just wondering if this is correct. I am also curious to know the other functionalities of the Titan Two if someone is knowledgeable enough to share the information. Thanks.

If your mouse has on-board memory and support macros you don't need titan 1 or two. Im using Tt Ventus Z, mouse that supports 12 FULLY programable buttons, even macros that activates if you let a button press down (logitech does not support)

I started to play Fortnite days ago, I noticed the importance of building and I just finish 3 macros for one click build.

(https://i.imgur.com/n2r7Job.jpg)

IMPORTANT, First change the ingame setting: reset build = ON.

On my Button layout (PS4)

R2 = LMB (Left Mouse Button)
L1 = Left Arrow≤
R1 = Right Arrow
O (build) = E

≤ I use the Razer Orbweaver, Left and Right Arrow are in my thumb so is very easy for me to switch between items.

Fast Building:
Build Wall: press E, then I press LMB, let it down to keep building (ingame setting Turbo Build = ON) no macro needed.

BuildFloor Macro:
Press E(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms), then I press LMB.

BuildStairs Macro:
Press E(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms) then I press LMB and keep it down if I need more.

BuildPyramid Macro:
Press E(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms), then I press LMB.

Now I can build a box with stairs in seconds, like a veteran fortnite player and I have only 12 minutes of play LOL.

PROTIP. for Logitech Users.

For setting  delay times exactly as I did(30ms), using the Logitech Gaming Software.

If you already create the macro: open the macro window... and double click on each interval delay time and you can change the value directly, for 30ms type: 030 <press enter> and that is it!.

Quote from: weedBOTv4.20
I just did them via Logitech's software, recording the delay between keypresses (won't work without the delays) while pressing them in sequence as quick as you can.

No need of doing it as quick as you can. Just when you create the macro, be sure to activate the "record interval time", then you can modify values of those interval times specifically ;).

Yes, there are multiple profile slots, 5 I think.
And you can bind a profile selection button on the mouse.

I'm very intrigued by all this on-board stuff so I started fiddling with my G502 software... I think I have the macro down for everything I need, and I'm using key E for Circle(O)[PS4] in the APEX manager... the question I have is, how do I set this up for L1/R1 in the APEX manager when I already have those keys mapped to my G13?

Hey Weedbot,

Thanks for the help so far, much appreciated buddy.

Could you perhaps post your current settings for all three builds (either here or somewhere like pastebin).

We could then simply paste into our logitech software.

Many Thanks,

In the Logitech software bind your mouse buttons to unused keyboard keys and then add those as Secondary binds in the Apex manager. Under the part where you bind keystrokes there is the 3 dots to expand if you click on that it will give you a button to the Secondary part where you can bind a second key to each command.

I have a question, for example when you build a wall, does it automatically switch back to your weapon?

In the way I have mine set-up, yes. This is because I more often panic build a single wall (or a series of them as I retreat) for cover, or a single wall and stairs as cover + perch for a firefight. I do this more often than building 4-wall or more bases.
So, I still use both building methods in game I find, when I'm not being shot I usually use the normal method as it's fairly quick anyway in my set-up (build bound to mousewheel click, wheel up and down selects piece, left mouse click to place).
But for single walls for cover or single ramps when looting etc I use the macros.

Much luck to you guys in getting things tweaked to your liking. The Apex sure has improved my Fortnite experience 8)

It's no worries, if I can offer some assistance back to this community that has given me much help. I read a great deal here before even getting my Apex and it made set-up a smooth experience.

I'll post screenies from my Logitech software.

The delay timing in these (90ms) is what I've found works reliably on MY set-up, it may be different for you.

So you would just check record delays and push your keys/buttons in sequence, then go back and click on the delays and adjust the timing as needed.

In these my keybinds are:
Right Shift = Build (B on Xbox)
D = Place piece (Mouse left click)
S = Next Piece (Right bumper on Xbox)

Wall:

Awesome, well done weedBOTv4.20

Well here is a demo of my setup running: https://streamable.com/ssyak

As you can see I macros that build a piece and then get back to primary weapon, glitches to me. Is the problem I mention, but it might be mouse is not compatible with this, I have to tested on a logitech, sometimes macros are finky

However with the macros I posted (auto select the piece you build the first and others via Turbo Build Mode) works really nice, but you have to press Build button to get back to your primary weapon.

Still I have to practice, but that was my 3rd attempt, not bad.

you know how everytime you build a wall you switch back to your gyn automatically...I just want a macreo that when i press middle wheel for example buildd a wwall and stay on the wall to keep building walls.

Oh I got you.

<Dont worry is not my english first language either hehe ;)>

Yeah that's how my macros work.

If I press the BuildStairs macro (let's say is assigned to middle wheel button) what happens is:

game will do the following automatically: open the build mode, go to stairs... selected and macro finish here. From now on... you can:

a) press build button to create a stair, or press and hold build button to keep building more stairs (Turbo Build option must be enabled)...

b) you stay on "stairs selected", meaning if you press back item button (left per example) you can build a floor, if you hold down the build button... it keeps building floors.


To stop building you have to press build button to get back to your primary weapon.

This is kind of semi automatic macro, the only thing that does for you is, enable build mode and select a specific piece, then it depends on you what you want to do.

Great video, mate. It really shows how your 2nd set-up shines compared to the first.
For me the delay had to be 90ms to avoid such glitching.
But, still, I only really use the one button binds in panic mode while I am actually being shot and I need to throw up instant shield and return to my weapon in one press.
Anything not under duress or more complex than a wall or a wall+stairs and I usually build the normal way which I am decently quick at.

For any new players I would definitely go with your binds (that don't return to weapon) as it allows an overall better & quicker building experience, IMHO. :)

Good job guys,

I bought the G502 this past friday and didn't get into the macro building.  Now that I see what it's capable of, I'm getting relieved of building with the K&M.

I've played on console for 15 years and have played on M&K for 3 days.  I still managed to get a few wins with fortnite but I believe it was complete luck as my building was at about 30-40% as fast as I was on console.  This will help that out alot.

Good write ups!

You've converted me, bro.

I was playing around with my macros and found that removing the last step of returning to weapon really made the whole thing work much better and I now don't have to use both methods.
So, it enables build, selects piece and places first piece then I can either continue building or press the same button again to return to my weapon (this was an unexpected happy surprise).

Thanks for the inspiration.  8)

Alright boys and girls, after messing about with both methods for One Click Building  (on-board macros vs. Titan Two script) I have come to the conclusion that the T2 method is much more efficient. That being said, both methods work solid and if someone has a mouse with on-board memory and the ability to do macros but cannot/will not pay $100 for another device, by all means that method works pretty @#$% good.

I was thinking of doing either a write-up tutorial or a video tutorial on how to set-up and configure both methods with live demonstrations of each in action. Would like to know the community's thoughts on this before I put in the time to do it. Cheers!

I would like that as I am missing something.

I play on the Xbox, and have a G502 Mouse.

I set a macro to bring out build, also did it with stairs using build>right>right.  But I can't seem to be able to build a wall by itself, I have to physically press the mouse button.  It sounded like someone has figured out how to build>right>right>mouse click, but I can't seem to assign the mouse click to any key stroke, it's only able to be the click.

Any guidance would be appreciated

From my understanding, it's simply a matter of hitting the button you have mapped for Stairs macro twice if you currently have walls selected. The logic behind this is simple.. Lets say you have one button for Walls and another for Stairs... in your case, you would hit the Walls button once, then hit the Stairs button twice quickly. It's not the most efficient way of doing it, but it works and I'm convinced it's still faster than simply hitting the build button and R1/RB twice with a controller.

With the T2 script, you don't have to fuss with all that - it's simply one button clicks to walls, stairs, floor, etc from any position whether you have building material out or a weapon. It's the best way to mimic the behavior of PC play thus far - speaking from experience here.

I just received my APEX in the mail a couple days ago, and before that I was using the Titan Two exclusively to play Fortnite BR on PS4 for about a week since my transition from PC. The script I'm using allows me to map one-button building to my G502 perfectly the way I do on PC. I've just set up my APEX and T2 to work together tonight and I must say, it's a game changer. The Titan Two works perfectly well stand-alone for Fortnite, however the mouse input translator is FAR inferior to the APEX.

If you're looking to get a Titan Two for one-button building, definitely give it a shot. I can give you the script that I'm currently using as well. I hope this helps answer your question. Best of luck!

With the Macro I came up 2.0 works like this:

Lets say ButtonX,Y,W,Z are what ever button on your layout you set up a macro.

ButtonX = Build Wall Macro instantaneously, let you build more if you press R2
ButtonY = Build Stairs Macro            "              "   "       "       "      "    "    "       R2

One question though : If lets say im building a wall and i want to build a stair, the macro would not work if i'm currently in the wall right? since it needs to go into building mode and select twice to the right.

With the Macro I came up 2.0 works like this:

Lets say ButtonX,Y,W,Z are what ever button on your layout you set up a macro.

ButtonX = Build Wall Macro instantaneously, let you build more if you press R2
ButtonY = Build Stairs Macro            "              "   "       "       "      "    "    "       R2
ButtonW = Build Floor Macro            "              "   "       "       "      "    "    "       R2
ButtonZ = Build Pyramid Macro        "              "   "       "       "      "    "    "       R2


Press ButtonX and build a Wall instantaneously!... if you want a set of stairs: then press ButtonY twice and Build a Stairs, if you hold Trigger (R2 on PS4) you keep building stairs...

then if you want a floor press ButtonW twice a floor will be built by itself, if you need more floors hold R2... if you press ButtonZ twice a Pyramid pop up... if you want another floor, press ButtonW twice and floor will be built automatically.

Press Build button to get back to your weapon

So with these auto build macros can you stay in build mode the whole time while building different pieces like Stairs and walls? Could you post a example of how these macros are setup? Such as your previous setup:

BuildFloor Macro:
Press E(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms), then I press LMB.

BuildStairs Macro:
Press E(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms), Right Arrow(↓30ms / ↑0ms) then I press LMB and keep it down if I need more.

Would you like co collaborate with me on creating this walkthru/video on how to setup both methods (macros vs T2 scrips)? Could really use your experience with the macro side of things!

Yup sure! I'm down, but scripts are macro, in essence.

However on my experience, onboard memory macros are more reliable than on my T1, I don't know of T2 (I don't have one).

Could you post a screen shot of your macro setup thats saved on your Mouse memory for reference?

Sure bud, I will post soon (lunch break) the script/macro so you can try it.

With the T2 script, you don't have to fuss with all that - it's simply one button clicks to walls, stairs, floor, etc from any position whether you have building material out or a weapon.

I don't have a T2, but when XIM Link is out I plan on building this macro in AHK or similar.
I'm not familiar with T2 programming, but to keep track of build mode is there like a:

bool buildMode = True (if in build mode) or False (if not in build mode);

and then you just have a button that does something like

if(buildMode)
    R1, R1;
else
    O, R1, R1;

and finally you will need to have any key that exits build mode in game, sets buildMode to False.

I have never messed with AHK so I'll need to learn the language, but I plan on writing lots of scripts in it!

I've never heard of XIM Link, what is is sorcery you speak of?! I'm familiar with AHK, however! If it's as good as T2's scripting, I'll gladly switch over. I'm not biased one way or another!

As far as the code goes, in a nutshell yes that's basically what happens in the script. Obviously it's a little more complex than that, but you get the picture :)

LOL I messed up hehehe the set of macros that allows you to build one piece to another by double clicking are the first ones posted, the semi automatic version 1.0, no the 2.0

The new ones 2.0, build a piece automatically and let you keep building more same pieces as long you press R2, if you want to build a different piece you have to press build button and then the macro with the piece you want, meaning.

Press BuildStairsMacro and a stair will be built instantaneously, if you keep pressing R2 more stairs will be created, then you want a Wall, press Build button, then BuildWallMacro and a wall will be built instantaneously, if you turn 360 holding R2 a box will be built, press Build button, then BuildWallStairs a stair will pop up...etc.

The first set of macros 1.0 version I think are more flexible, the 2.0 the only difference is that allows you create the piece at once.

Situation: Let's say if you are in a gunfight... and you want to built a wall:

With 1.0 BuildMacros, you have to: press build, then R2 and a wall will be built. Then you have to manually press build button to get back to your weapon


With 2.0 you press BuildWallMacro, and a Wall it will pop up in an instant. Then you have to manually press build button to get back to your weapon

So,

Is there a way to auto build with Xbox without a Titan Two?

I can get to Build>Right Arrow>Right Arrow  to bring me to stair build, but it sounds like you guys are able to auto build without clicking the mouse? How is that done? Since you can't macro a Mouse Click, and Mouse Click apparently can't be keybinded?

Fortnite Fast Build Macros 2.0.

DEMO: https://streamable.com/qv0p1

First step. Go to settings and be sure Reset Build Choice is ON and Turbo Build is ON

Controller Layout to Quick Builder.

(PS4)
Build = E
L1 = Left Arrow
R1 = Right Arrow
R2 = Left ClickĻ

Ļ If your macro editor doesn't support Left Click events (Logitech) there is a work around explained at the end.

Macros.

Build Pyramid Macro
(https://i.imgur.com/IhvToKQ.jpg)


About: Left Mouse Click can't be use on my Macro Editor (Logitech) Workaround

On XIM Manager at your Fortnite BR ST profile assign a Secondary R2 binding to an unused key on your keyboard (PE: letter V). Now you can use the macro above just substituted Left Click for V

Build Stairs Macro on Logitech Gaming Software
(https://i.imgur.com/czmqFBE.jpg)

Build procedure using this Macros - explained.

You are with your weapon... Press BuildWallMacro Button and a Wall pop up, keep pressing R2 to build more walls... press Build button to get back to your primary weapon.

Press BuildStairsMacro Button and a Stairs pop up, keep pressing R2 more stairs be built, then press build button and BuildPyramidMacro and a Pyramid pop up, press Build button to get back to your primary weapon.

Meaning you need to press Build button to get back to your primary weapon or to use a different macro to built a different piece and the first one it will be created Instantaneously, no need to press R2

I know BuildWall Macro looks like it has a extra or redundant step, but it was a trickery so a wall can pop up fast as possible.

The regular idea will be: Build Button, R2. For that to work right it will need longer time interval is not as fast as the one I share.

Another thing I have to mention, I'm using Tt Ventus Z it is a very low input lag mouse, so if these macros don't work properly on your mouse... may you need to use a longer time intervals, like 60ms instead of 30ms.

Alan,

There is a way for us Logitech users to change left mouse click to another key?  I may have missed that in my Apex Manager, I never saw an option to do this.

Is it just clicking on R2/RT, wait for it to " Listen ", click on a random key such as in this case "V", then in Logitech's software for my mouse, I change the Left Mouse Click to " V ", so that it follows my keybind to V which in turn forces left mouse click/R2/RT?

Let your R2 binded to your Left Click Mouse (Default), what you need to do for a secondary binding is the following:

OK, make sure you Enabled Expert Configuration on your XIM Apex Manager. Open your App, go to GLOBAL Settings and enabled it. Then go back, load your regular Fortnite BR ST... and under the buttons you will see a three dots: ... tapped and a Primary and > slider will pop up, tapped > to Secondary and now you have a new set of buttons to binding a different key, is there where you go to the R2 and bind letter V like the example.

the problem with this macro is you cannot switch between buildings while your building menu is active
you will always have to close down the building menu in order to get the most out of your script

with a titan two or xim link and autohotkey you can write more complex scripts that will also allow you to switch between buildings with a single click
(theres a way to achieve this with a logitech mouse too but it will always make switch your active weapon to the pickaxe which is kinda annoying in combat)

All right, I got it.

Now they are fully automatic or semi.

Automatic:

Semi-Automatic:

Scenarios:


On both schemes if you want to use your pickaxe you need to hold Triangle, that's why Quick Builder layout is required. By just tapping triangle you switch weapons or energy boost.

You must be using time delays between each key press (the right way for Logitech macros ), I'm guessing.

UPDATE, yeah I think I nailed it with the automatic... I don't know if is the PC behavior but is so easy and fast and you are ready for combat at all time.

You press a macro, a piece will pop up automatically and you are back at your gun, press a macro for a different piece it will pop up and you are back to your gun, you need your pickaxe? hold Triangle.

Sure man, yeah... that's why I'm tight them up (to do the building as fast as possible) but without breaking it, because server lag can mess up the input, malfunctioning the macro.

Build-right arrow-right arrow-mouse click-build, to get me a fast stair and return to weapon.

Set key "E" since it is close to WASD to enter manual build mode if I need to get creative.  Gonna try it out and see if it suits me

Been trying to think of a way to switch between the build types cleanly whilst already in build mode. Was going to give this a go and see if it feels too clumsy or not. It requires entering build mode first before doing anything. Also requires reset build option on. The method relies on the macros quickly exiting build mode and entering it again. Itís unfortunate that a macro canít be done to work regardless of whether already in build mode or not.

In game use:
Wall = press build button (if in build mode already with a different piece selected eg. stairs, press build button twice. This will basically exit build mode and bring you back in at default wall mode)
Stairs = in build mode > macro A
Floor = in build mode > macro B
Pyramid = in build mode > macro C

Macros: just a basic summary
Stairs (macro A) = build > build > right > right
Floor (macro B) = build > build > right
Pyramid (macro C) = build > build > left


Personally I am going to try setting the stairs and floor macro on the forward and back buttons on my g502. Put the pyramid macro somewhere, but itís rarely needed. I will use scroll wheel for weapons.

Might even look at the option of setting a macro for wall which is simply ďbuild button > build buttonĒ. This could allow me to set wall and stairs on mouse forward/back buttons. Might be smoother not having to double tap build button to get back to wall. I could then build a tower by simply entering build mode and switching between wall and stairs using forward/back.

Edit:
The only way I can think of is using pickaxe in the macro so the macro will work no matter whether you are in build mode with any piece selected, or with weapon out. This would be the macro for stairs... ďpickaxe > build mode > right > rightĒ. Only problem is you will always have pickaxe out when leave build mode which isnít ideal when ramp rushing etc.

Personally, I think I will use BuildStairs, BuildFloor and Build Pyramid on SEMI-AUTOMATIC MACRO, and Wall in full Automatic (for panic situations, when I need cover as fast as possible).

Well I guess I have to play more, to know for sure which ones suited better for me, as all of you.

 ;)

The only think it could work better than these macros it will be a script, where you can get a false or true value depending where you are at the building list so you can build the next piece, but I don't have my titan anymore (I sold it).

Title: Re: Fortnite | One button building
Post by: alanmcgregor on 12:21 AM - 03/15/18
Well let me put it this way...

I will came up with an algorithm/script/routine where:

When you press BuildStairs Button a stair will pop up, then if you press R2 create more stairs. But then if you want a wall you press BuildWall Button and the script will pop up a wall, and stay on wall highlighted, then you want a Pyramid, press BuildPyramid Button and the script will pop up a Pyramid, want a floor, press BuildFloor Button and a Floor will be built, press Build mode to exit, switch back to the gun.

That could be possible if I had a way to evalue "where I am at" (an index counter initialized with a value depend which button I pressed, lol done!), if I'm at BuildStairs array and want a Wall that means that my script will press L1, L1 and R2, then I want a Pyramid... my script find out where I am, in this case it will be at Wall, so my script will press R1, R1, R2 to select pyramid and built, and etc if I press build at any moment I got out of build mode and back to my gun.

Yes, have a major on computer programming, C++, JavaScript are my stronger language. (kind of rusty though)

I had a bad experience with Titan One, however at that time I was focusing on M&KB adapter, then I try XIM4 and the rest was history. I sell my Titan One to get some extra cash to pay XIM4, cost me X2.5 its price due duties and taxes.

Getting the Titan Two for a flexible programming, pay about 200 usd I don't think is worth it. I really doubt ConsoleTuner donate one LOL.

The difference will be marginal.

I will wait, until is 100% compatible in 1KHz polling rate, no big input lag drawback.

Alan, quick question. I am going to try and create macros on my G502 as you described. I havent read all your details yet, but before I do I have a conceptual question.

Lets say I want to record a macro on a side button on my G502, and that macro will entail the equivalent of 4 actions on my XBOX controller (go to build mode (b), scroll to building piece (rb) , execute build (rt), exit build mode (b)).

Now lets say I have 3 of those 4 controller actions keybinded to my keyboard (got to build, scroll to building piece and exit build) and 1 of those 3 controller actions keybinded to my mouse (execute build).

When I record the macro on my mouse side button, the macro can include both keyboard and mouse actions? When I run the macro, the macro will interact with the keyboard to execute the macro?

The macro from your mouse is sent to your XIM when its plugged into the XIM. Its sending the commands to your XIM to execute. So those key commands have to be set as key bindings in what ever XIM profile your running.

You need to use the Logitech Software on your computer while the mouse is plugged in to record the macros. They will end up saved on the mouses memory. 
Title: Re: Fortnite | One button building
Post by: alanmcgregor on 02:26 PM - 03/15/18
Yep, exactly as geekdll explained.

Be sure you have selected the slider to On-Board Memory on the Logitech Gaming Software.

(https://aws13-customer-care-assets.s3.amazonaws.com/CC%20Graphics/G603/04_03.jpg)

Things that you can't do in the Logitech Mice Macro Editor for onboard-memory:
* Record mouse Left/Right Clicks
* Record mouse movement (X, Y axis)
* Create Macros with multiple Repeat options, like: Repeat a macro while pressing down a button, Toggle Repeat, Repeat X number of times.

the problem with this macro is you cannot switch between buildings while your building menu is active
you will always have to close down the building menu in order to get the most out of your script

with a titan two or xim link and autohotkey you can write more complex scripts that will also allow you to switch between buildings with a single click
(theres a way to achieve this with a logitech mouse too but it will always make switch your active weapon to the pickaxe which is kinda annoying in combat)

Xim Link? o_O

Woah you guys have come far for this, I knew about being able to macro with the g502 which I had done originally but you guys took this to the next level! It's such a shame nobody has come out with a flash software for the Logitec mice to allow scripting on onboard memory, but it's definitely possible because with game specific profiles you can set scripts up in that, it's just a huge shame that when it's plugged into the xim it doesn't transfer over because the script is saved on the computer not the mouse itself☹️ if I find anything on an actual firmware flash then it could be a huge game changer! Itd remove the need of needing to use macros, going to do some research to see if the razer black widow has onboard memory for scripting because if it does then boys we are set and we will have no need to spend money on the titan 2! Going to have a look either tonight or tomorrow to see what I can dig up, could be worth while investing in a mouse that saves onboard scripts if there is one😱
Title: Re: Fortnite | One button building

Razer's keyboards, and DA Elite mice and older models doesn't have onboard memory. Only new models like Lancehead and Basilisk offers onboard memory.

AHH that sucks, ah well. Looks like waiting for the link to come for true scripting then, shame I won't be able to use the link due to belink transfer cable being the only one that's compatible with it because they're unavailable now.. if they worked with usb 3.0 transfer cables I'd be fine but it doesn't seem like they will☹️ oh.. by the way, I remember when I did my first macro for fortnite with no delay, sometimes it would work and sometimes it wouldn't.. I wonder you know if we can set a secondary build key on the be ST.. so here's what I'm thinking (possibly could work) who knows..

I have my 'Q' binded to build.
Say I set my secondary bind to 'L'

When I first tried it out it worked amazing for getting out of the build mode but never to get into it with no delay.

So.. 'L' with maybe 10ms delay to get out of build mode should be fine getting out..

Say setting the script up would be for quick stairs from weapon

QUICK STAIRS BIND

'L' pressed down 10ms delay up 0ms

'Q' pressed down 30-35ms delay up 0ms

Right down 30ms delay right up 0 delay then again Right down 30ms delay right up 0ms delay.

Then again for walls, but just with the Q and L no need for arrow keys..

Sure, we would have to exit build mode manually when we are done building but if this theory does work we potentially have a 1button build mode with neither link or titan 2.. I'd have a play and try to get it working but I'm away from home so I can't access the Logitech gaming profile, I'm back home tomorrow though so I'll have a look into it if nobody else has already.

Also, lol @ all the people saying the Apex and T2 aren't compatible. I run at 500hz with zero input lag - the human eye literally can't tell the difference between 500hz and 1000hz. Placebo effect, etc. If you want a T2, get one. If you don't, don't :)

Yup, the script I'm using is only to help with building in Fortnite BR :)

And yes, there was a new update (antithesis made a thread) for the Titan Two that now allows 1000hz support. I just updated the firmware and played a solo match and won. It feels good.

Yes it's true, but it's not overly viable IMO.

Having sprint and crouch on the mouse isn't great and F keys as building keys doesn't allow for quick building.

Im experimenting w/ sprint (forward scroll) and crouch (push down scroll) on G502 mouse and didnt feel to bad. Problem is when I plugged keyboard into back of XBox, I couldnt couldnt find anywhere that showed what default key mappings were so didnt get a chance to test it last night.

So.. extending on what I said here. It works, it's sketchy but it works to an extent, now.. setting a secondary binding for weapons.. I put 1-2 for the secondary LB and RB and replaced the pickaxe with E as I don't use it for anything, as I said, it is sketch.. but it does the job to what I've tested, maybe you can have a play around with the delays and see how you get on. Such a shame that here in the UK you can't get a titan two without waiting forever for delivery😔

Cheers :) I wouldn't be half the player I am if I didn't have all these months of experience of PC Fortnite. I think we can all agree the player pool on console is significantly easier than PC players on average. Most the time, these console kids don't even shoot back.

Tonight I played on XB1 with my 9 year old son, needless to say if anybody wants a solid ego boost they should definitely consider playing on XB1! The player pool there is the weakest of the three by far.

Fortnite Fast Build Macros 2.0. *SEMI-AUTOMATIC*

DEMO: https://streamable.com/uuc9z

First step. Go to settings and be sure Reset Build Choice is ON and Turbo Build is ON

Controller Layout to Quick Builder.

(PS4)
Build = E
L1 = Left Arrow
R1 = Right Arrow
R2 = V Secondary binding on XIM Manager

On XIM Manager at your Fortnite BR ST profile assign a Secondary R2 binding to an unused key on your keyboard (PE: letter V). Now you can use these macros. More details at the end.

Macros.

Build Floor/Roof Macro
(https://i.imgur.com/eT9Wwxk.jpg)

Build Pyramid Macro
(https://i.imgur.com/edLk16Y.jpg)

How it works:

These macros build a piece automatically it will pop up, then you can, either:
  • Build more pieces of the same type by pressing and holding down R2 button, or...
  • Use your L1 or R1 bind keys to switch to a different piece, or...
  • Press Build button to switch back to your gun, or
  • Press Build button and then a different Macro button to build a different piece

HOW TO SET Secondary binding for R2 on Logitech Mice
Quote
Make sure you Enabled Expert Configuration on your XIM Apex Manager. Open your App, go to GLOBAL Settings and enabled it. Then go back, load your regular Fortnite BR ST... and under the buttons you will see a three dots: ... tapped and a Primary and > slider will pop up, tapped > to Secondary and now you have a new set of buttons to binding a different key, is there where you go to the R2 and bind letter V like the example.

Do I absolutely have to use quick builder to use this?

EDIT: I got it to work!!! On board memory wasnít selected AND , hereís the  Eureka moment.

I had to manually record my macros by hand with recording delays ticked ON.
Certain low delay values didnít register on the xim Apex for some reason. But tapping the keystrokes by hand as fast as I can, really helped out here.


Guys all Iím trying to do is create a macro that double taps RB for me.
I changed my g502ís back mouse button to the key that I use for RB which is E.
Added a multi key to that back button and set it to tap E twice. With a delay in the middle. So thereís E up and down delay3 and then E up and down again.

I saved it, loaded up fortnite and it doesnít work.
 I doing something wrong ? Do I need to add a delay after up and down presses? Or just one delay after up and down presses. ? I have my building key E for RB on my manager. I think Iím just doing something wrong. Please help me. Thank you.


Also I do not own a T2 XIM link, COMMANDER or Sandhawc
Is this possible ?

Just a simple macro to tap a button twice.

Using macros you can only get one button build for the first piece. Canít build stairs wall stairs wall. Build first piece then you would have to cycle to next piece.  I have no idea how to use macros on your mouse but Iím sure itís not much different then my G502. Watch a YouTube video.

first time i made a macro, floor ,wall , ramp it all works :)
But i have 1 big problem.. i cant cycle trough my inventory.. like changing weapons..
i have set L1 R1 on the arrows left and right and if i play w,a,s,d i need to change the guns or other inventory stuff with the arrows and i dont know how to do it in a diffrent way..
Is there a way to change weapons or something els to bind a key to cycle inventory?
thx,

I have my left and right bumper set to my scroll wheel on my mouse. And then a secondary binding too two more keys on my keyboard for making macros. This has worked out best for me for quick transitions in weapons and building options on the fly.

Just a heads up. Video has been recorded for the tutorial, just waiting for the Fortnite servers to come back online so I can record some gameplay to demonstrate exactly what the script is doing. This means the video should be out today, assuming servers come back on :)

Sounds great my T2 is gonna be delivered any minute now. I will provide feedback. Thanks





Hi man can you told us whats happend with u  did it worked The T2

Why would you guys mess up with marcros on the G502 when you have a working script that works a lot better.

I guess because macros doesn't need, additional hardware (Belking Easy Transfer Cable, PC or T2) easy to setup, and the difference is pretty much one button click.

But it seems the new update may give us a solution.

I mean, if it works for you, then great - not hating or anything like that. From what I saw in the videos posted, it looked like you only have a tiny amount of time to place any piece before it times out and pull out your gun. To me and I could be wrong on this one, but wouldn't that slow you down?

Regarding the transfer cable, that only costs about £10.

True but not everyone plays beside their PC or even has a Pc.

ocz,

No problem dude, those videos are demos, I had less than an hour playing the game. Those were full automatic one button build macros: press stair-macro and a stair is built and place, go back to gun, press again stair macro to place another one or a different piece.

Pressing one specific key to get a specific piece is the easiest to learn and build, but for auto-macros one piece build the drawback is not as fluent. I share these macros for new players, people that want to try the game, making building easier before to really get into and expend more $ on it, is only an affordable alternative.

I have T2, and I use a Mark's script shared by redacted here. I did some additional mods to fit more to my taste (double pump and tuned ADS-Headshot) XIM APEX is doing the translation directly from the mouse, T2 is enhancing Orbweaver with scripts.

Back to the macro subject,

I was using the Semi-automatic Macros at the beginning and got used to it. I can't say the Script is 100% better, maybe 50%.

I will do my best to explain. Here we go:

Scenario: you have your Rifle up, want to build 4 walls and one stair inside (the basic cube-stair) then you are on top of the stairs and with your gun ready.

Script:
Press wall-macro (a wall will be place),
Hold down R2 to place 3 more,
Then press stair-macro (a stair will be place),
Press build button (out of build mode) to get back to your gun.

Semi-Auto Macros:
Press wall-macro (a wild wall will be place)
Hold down R2 to place 3 more, **yup does same as script
Then press Build Button, follow by pressing stair macro (a stair will be place),
Press build button (out of build mode) to get back to your gun.

As you can see, on the Semi-Automatic Macros the diference is everytime you want to place a different piece, you need to get out of build mode and then press the macro of the other piece. We called "track resetting", script does for you.

And that's why Scripts are more efficient, I give it a 50% better. 100% better will be exactly as PC (no need of toggle build mode).

That difference/improvement (pressing one button, between different pieces) worth £10 or T2?
- up to you.

If you playing casual no as invested in the game... I don't think so. Besides, if you already have the mouse (like many XIMers), why not try macros?.

Don't get me wrong Titan Two is Awesome Device unleash a lot of potential in your gaming experience, you should get it just for that. Highly recommended.

XIM link is a affordable alternative but no as practical like Stylesb111 saids, not everyone plays beside their PC, doesn't work for me... the noise of my rig and not mention the electricity bill.

Finally,

I want to mention Auto Macros Behavior on the same scenario:

Press wall-macro (a wall will be place),
Press 3 times wall-macro to place 3 walls.
Then press stair-macro (a stair will be place),
Done.

It sounds more convenient, getting back to your gun every time is what does building slower, suitable for starters, but I will say semi or script (hands down) are better options for more experience players.

At the end, choose what ever works better for you ;-)

Thanks for the reply :)
I have my Titan two but the scripting is where I get lost. I saw a forum on here called xim apex and Titan two one button building and it contains the script for Titan two. But I have a lot of questions as to how to get script functioning and what to do if I want to use different keys opposed to the keys in the script

Awesome dude, congrats on your buy.

Well, that was a paragraph I remove from my other post on macros being very straight forward and easy to set up. On the other hand T2 and XIM Link, are for advanced users, people with basic understanding on modular programming (C language) and patience can get the most of it.

Even though the guys that wrote and share the scripts are pretty awesome and the code is very clean, I can see they got tired of answering the same questions over and over (I don't blame them) from people without knowledge or some fellas want everything working 100% at the first try.

Titan Two offers 1 game pack for Fortnite Battle Royal, it has a build script. I think that will be the easiest to set up. Just open Gtuner, Search for the gamepack on Online Resources, drag and drop on the memory slot.
To setup, connect:
Mouse, KB, Control to XIM Hub,
XIM Hub to XIM Apex
XIM Apex to Input A in T2
T2 to Console

The bad news the gamepack build scritps are awful you will do way better with macros.

The Best Script (referred on this thread) is the one wrote by Mark8010

You can find it here: https://www.consoletuner.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=7897&start=170#p60548 (https://www.consoletuner.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=7897&start=170#p60548). That script is the most complete, uses mouse and keyboard or Sony Nav scripts are running on both.
To setup, connect:
M&KB on T2,
T2 to Xim hub,
XIM hub (a side with controller) to XIM Apex,
XIM Apex to console

Mark wrote a simplify version for redacted he was very nice to share on a great video tutorial:
http://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=62973.0 (http://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=62973.0) On this version the scripts are running only on the G502 mouse.
To setup, connect:
Mouse to input A in T2,
T2 to XIM hub (a side with keyboard, controller),
XIM hub to Xim Apex,
XIM Apex to console.
You may need a mouse with plenty buttons to run the macros from there.

At the end I shared my adaptation where scripts are running on the Orbweaver (or any keyboard, for that matter) allowing to use any mouse you want and XIM APEX doing mouse translation directly, not passing through T2.

Okay sick!! Iím actually getting my g502 tomorrow so Iím hyped to get the script up and running!! Quick question though, do I have to use all the keys that are already set in the script or can I change the keys to my liking i.e like the build button and swapping guns/next build keys?
How would I be able to change these keys if possible?
Title: Re: Fortnite | One button building
Post by: alanmcgregor on 09:58 PM - 04/11/18
You can change the keys to your liking by changing the code -that is easier to said than done, you need to configure 2 things more.

Assuming you're going to do it following redacted video tutorial, you can change or choose on which mouse buttons will be your macros for wall, stair and floor. Switching weapons mouse needs to be set for switching weapons by using the mouse wheel (so the script can work) but you can bind a secondary keys (on your keyboard) with XIM Apex Manager if you don-t like to use the mouse wheel to move between weapon slots or items

Now if you are asking for a direct weapon/item slot selection, that's not possible with the script or any method.

Last question man thanks so much for responding BTW.
Will the script be different if I play on Xbox one?
When I paste the script into my Titan two will I need to change anything from the script in order to get it functioning properly on my Xbox one?
Reason Iím asking is because i dont know if the script is preset with PS4 buttons or Xbox buttons

Script should be working fine with your XBox One, is not preset for PS4.

I think everyone should just return their Titan 2/1 devices while they can as theyíve added native one  button building.

If youíre using devices such as Titan 2 for scripts such as rapid fire and auto aim then thatís probably why controller players complain about the Xim, with this new aditinto he game thereís less complaining

Nah, new scripts using the new Pro Builder mode as foundation will be even faster and easier.

People will always complain.

So will previously published redact/Mark 1 click build script have to be changed now becuase of Pro Builder of can it still be used?

Can still used, just set to Combat Pro layout, if is still there. I don't know, can't launch the game since yesterday.

Hi Alan quick question, Iím following the steps of redacted but I get stuck in with the output panel telling me that Iím missing the light k file
So I downloaded the light k panel
But can you tell me step by step how I download to the file with my fortnite script. Iím confused on how to do that
Because I downloaded it and it opened up next to my script but when I went to press compile, it gave me the same ďmissing light k fileĒ message.
Title: Re: Fortnite | One button building
Post by: alanmcgregor on 02:03 AM - 04/13/18
If you already download the light_k file, you need to save it in the same folder where is save your script (GPC file) on your PC.

No need to open it on GTuner.
