I need moderator approval to post publicly, and someone here may be able to answer my question anyway. I am wanting to turn off Black Ops 3's controller Aim Assist. On PC there is only an option to turn off Target Assist. Aim assist makes zombies utterly frustrating to play. Since it is an option in the console versions and is not active when using mouse/keyboard, I would think that the a mod either making it an option or just turning it off for the controller as well wouldn't be too difficult. I will do it myself if I can be steered in the right direction. I have no modding experience, but I have my dad at my disposal who is a software engineer specializing in mostly C++. Thanks in advance for any help! I know the community would appreciate making zombies mode playable with controllers especially with the modtools and Zombies Chronicles both now out.

PS: If this works, I would also like to add 4-player split screen as an option to PC since it is an option on consoles as well.

Hey :grinning:

There is no need to post threads in the " Talk to Staff " forum for moderation approval, if threads require moderation approval they will automatically appear in the moderation que.

Are you saying that you may be able to make a mod to take off autoaim? Or will a current mod menu already do it?

I found out that this probably will disable the autoaim:
Code:
player DisableAimAssist();
But I also found out that you can turn autoaim off in the settings which is quite easier:

This is not "Answered." That is Target Assist. It is different. Target Assist tracks a target as it moves and slows the movement speed as you track over a target. I don't want that either, but I already have it off by default. On consoles (and I am using an XBone controller) there is an option to turn off both Target Assist and Aim Assist. Through some more testing, I have found that the following custom maps do not have Aim Assist: Hijacked, Kalach, Kyassuru, Fabrik, Island Challenge, and Rust. And I am embarrsingly unsure how to use "player DisableAimAssist();" ...

I have done the same. I am talking with CabCon. I think he's going to whip something up for me. It will surely be posted here once/if he gets it working. I am confident that it is possible considering that there are at least 8 maps (Gulag which I downloaded today) that lack the aim assist. Surely there is a code difference between them that can be made into a mod.

Yes, this is true. :y: Unfortunately I wasn't able to get the controller yet so I decided to give the function DisableAimAssist(); a try. I compiled a mod, could you please test it? Download.

Sorry for the long delay! I tried the mod. It loaded fine, but no change in the aim assist. Thanks for the time and effort! Hopefully you still have some tricks up your sleeve!

I wonder if there is a way to enable aim assist using mouse/keyboard.
also player DisableAimAssist() will make 'player' not a valid target for aim assist.
For example, creating a struct, I would prevent players from knowing there is something there with struct DisableAimAssist()
I also tried enabling all zombies as a target, but again it only worked via controller.

Could you explain in more detail how to enable aim assist on the zombies? I want to make a script that enables aim assist for controller on user made zombie maps. I'm a noob here and don't really know anything about BO3 scripting.
