I Ninefingers IEdit
I am an Aerospace Engineering Project Manager for a business jet manufacturer in Kansas. I would probably be considered ancient among the gaming community, at 40 (I can still keep up with the pups, though....LOL). Been playing GW for over 3 years. I'm strictly PvP, starting out in HA back in the days of the VIM trap group. Rode that train to Rank 4 before it got nerfed.
Lately, I have been spending most of my Guild Wars time experimenting around with RA build development. When I get bored with that, I fall back to running my healing dervish as I Ninefingers I, or my glass cannon ranger as I Albatross I. Currently, I'm about 1/2 way to Glad 8 (I just rolled over 4000 Glad points awhile back). If I make it to G8 before Guild Wars completely implodes, it will be a miracle.--Α--йĨйƏҒỉйGƏЯş--Ω 14:41, November 4, 2009 (UTC)
Made my G7 a long time ago. Forgot to update my page.

I had some inquiries on youtube videos asking how I change targets so fast while moving without having to click the party bar. I answered that, after I had to have part of my left hand amputated, I made a set of pedals to scroll the party bar with my feet. Once you get used to it, it is an incredibly fast and efficient way to change targets, especially for a healer. I got quite a few requests for instructions on how to make a set. I’m posting those instructions on here, as a convenient medium that I can link people to when they ask.
THE FRAME – Cut a piece of plywood about 12”x18”. Attach something for feet at two corners of the back side so the frame will sit at about 15°. Drill two Ø.250 holes about 6” from the top at a comfortable width for your feet.
THE CIRCUITS – Buy a cheap USB keyboard ($9 at Walmart). You will also need two 12” lengths of speaker wire and one small jumper wire. Take the keyboard apart and remove the small circuit board inside, LEAVING THE CORD ATTACHED. Plug the USB cable into your computer and open a Notepad window. (This part may vary from board to board, depending on number of pins and the trace routing, but the concept is the same.) Three or four of the pins on the board will be shift state pins. They will be grouped together. The rest of the pins will be key pins, that will return a different keystroke when jumpered with each shift state pin. When you jumper a shfit state pin to a key pin, it will show the keystroke in Notepad. Try different combinations until you get the key you want, then solder the speaker ware to each of the pins. Repeat the process for the other wire. Note that if you have a two layer board, the pins on each side of the board will return a different result.
THE PEDALS – Attach the circuit board to the back of the frame towards the top. Carpet tape works good. Run the speaker wire up through each of the two holes in the plywood. Buy two surface mount horn buttons from the auto parts store (about $3 each). Attach the speaker wires to the leads from the horn buttons, and screw the buttons down to the plywood.
SETUP – Go into Guild Wars Options/Controls. Map each pedal to whatever commands you want to use them for. I actually have 3 pedals. Target Party Member Next, Target Party Member Previous and the middle one is Cancel Action.--I Ninefingers I 11:40, 17 December 2008 (EST)
