I’ve seen the use of this keybinder on a couple of youtube tutorials, but my question is ….would the use of such keybinder constitute cheating??… there is the following bullet in the sto’s player code of conduct “-Utilizing third-party programs to automate unattended gameplay” .
Would such a keybinder apply to this clause? I’d appreciate it if you could let me know your thoughts on this and its general use. Thank you.

Not that familiar with FES, but pretty much +75% of all STO players use keybinds (Hilbert guide is the most popular/simple one, which even some of the Devs use themselves) so using a program within STO is not an issue. Key here of course is the ‘unattended’ part which is popular with gold farmers. Getting a leg up by running a macro while you’re away is the illegal part.
Hard to control/police – though Cryptic is known to monitor player activity and have shut down farm accounts in the past – so how far you go in your keybind setup is up to you.
As the 44th, we obviously disapprove of any action that goes against the code of conduct.

I have used it, all it does is allow you to create the keybind commands to paste into STO, ie I used it to bind row 10 of the hot bar to the space bar so when space is press in space combat it will run all the skills I want running all the time like EPtW,EPtS, Torp spread, Tac Team etc.September 13, 2018 at 7:45 pm #282861MarcusFleet Member
Thanks so much for the info. I just wanted to get some opinions before I try keybinding. I really appreciate how great it is that the fleet is there to help our questions. Thanks for all that you do.
