Alias wont work with Bind command? Why?
Can anyone explain to me why this alias doesn't work?
alias switch "bind v "+mouse_menu Ellis""
bind <key> [command] : attach a command to a key<---usage message results
I keep getting usage messages which imply an error trying to bind the v key to the command +mouse_menu Ellis, where "Ellis" is a perfectly functioning radial menu. It works fine when i enter it manually as "bind v "+mouse_menu Ellis"", but not when im trying to make it into a simple alias. The alias seems to strip out the "" marks, so the command either flat out fails w/o quotes, or i get that usage message because the bind wont execute properly. And of course w/ no error codes explaining to me why this happens (unless there is a log file somewhere that im unaware of), it's a total mystery. I had this code working in the past to cycle through menus hitting one key. Then i hit the V key to use the menu. It just doesn't seem to work now (i reinstalled my OS along w/ L4D2).
