The only change you use to play better is use and memorize the number keys for the weapons so you can switch faster. I don't do that, because pressing enter is a habit ;P

right alt: jump
right shift: run (I always hold it)
And the arrow keys to move.

I use my MS SideWinder Gamepad.

Joypad = Directions
A = Change Weapon
B = Run (I always hold this)
C = Jump
L & R = Fire

I like having two fire buttons, so I can shoot a lot without my fingers getting tired (L is for left index finger, R is for right index finger).

I also have text macros

X = Say "Bye"
Z = Say "Hi"

Thumbs down wowowo yall got it totally wrong

puttin yer fingers on the keyboard right can be a big advantage,


i'll explain each one

if you use the alt button for turbo, you will be able to keep pressing it thru out the game, if you use a different finger like the uhm (//) is the english word index finger i guess it's hard to move yer "middle finger" you'll be a lot faster.

i play a lot of ctf and the index finger is the fastest finger and when chasing changing between seeks and rfs has to be done fast, so i use
my index finger for firing with L
changing weapons with O
you'll never use them both at the same time so this is the best option.

then there's the jump button left
after the index finger the "middle finger"is the fastest one, and using the pinki and the err "ring finger" isn't fast enough cuz your hand has to turn first.

so use K for jumping.

so... the whole finger settin :

Turbo : Alt
fire : L
Wep. change : O
Jump : K

i got this old european keyboard well atleast for 2day, new comp arriving tomorrow (1800 mhz hehe)

oh anduhm get to know the keys, and the weapon order, for example, in ctf3 when you have all weapons (exept for the ice)
it takes three clicks on the wep change to get to gun #9 and this is real usefull for almost every tactic in ctf3.

this is propably the longest post by me... on a subject that is propably one of the most lamest in the whole history of jcf


oh and uhm... don't use this this will take away my advantage to the rest of ya

Am I the only one here perfectly happy with the default controls?

I can do everything perfectly quickly, just press "t" accidentally sometimes... wish JJ2 could let you change the key bindings for things like chat.

I use a steering wheel for my controls. The wheel lets me move left and right, while the accelerator pad lets me run, and the brake pad lets me look down or crouch. Tilting the steering wheel makes me look up, and honking the horn allows me to shoot. It's pretty good, you should try it, because I sure haven't. ;-P

I use:

Shift - Run (hold down on it infinitely)
Ctrl - Jump
Space - Fire
Arrows - Movement

This is one of the few setups that isn't cramped for me.

up = e
down = d
left = s
right = f
select = h
shoot = u
jump = o
run = i

There, confusing enough for you?
Hehe, I use the keyboard keys because you can use buttons anywhere your fingers are in a comfortable position. Well, ok my layout isn't exactly like my dream layout used to be, but that's all thanks to my laggy keyboard. Yes, I've fiddled around with the keys pressing them in the strangest combinations to find out that the layout above is near lagless (can't press up while running and shooting). Oh, you want my old layout as well? Ok!

up = w
down = s
left = a
right = d
select = v
shoot = b
jump = m
run = n

I don't use the number keys cuz my finger is pretty happy with its current location on the keyboard

Cool

Bah, if you use the defaults, re-map those suckers.

Ninety percent of the time, default controls suck. Figure out what you use the most, and map it all nice and convenient like.

Me, I use the keyboard. Also, Jazz doesn't distinguish between right and left shifts and stuff. I always use the right ones (if you use the left, the Ctrl and Alt keys are reversed on you...)

Cursors: Movement.

Shift: Jump (rest the middlemost fingers here)

Ctrl: Fire (index finger...fastest finger in the...err...hand)

Alt: Run (pinky goes here. Pinky ain't too nimble, but he makes a nice paper-weight, so he works for this).

Space: Switch Weapons (frankly, I usually have one weapon I'll use for a whole level, which depends upon the level. It's a pain switching weapons using one key, but reaching for the number keys causes you to lose control).

~Buster

Testing...

I'm not a pro but here are my controls...

When I'm using my keyboard:

Left hand:

Up = W
Down = S
Left = A
Right = D

Right Hand:

Fire = O
Jump = P

Accessible by both hands:

Run = Shift
Spacebar = Select

With my 3d program pad (6 defaults and 4 custom), I use all the usual settings for the four buttons and use an additional 2 on top for firing (left) and jumping (right).

The defaults keys are the same as ST/Wakeman/FS use... I use my second-left finger for holding shift, my pinky for Ctrl, my thumb for the spacebar, and my index finger for switching weapons (number keys).. I use my other hand for the arrow keys (movement)

Defaults on the keyboard. It's all about the defaults. Almost the same as iCeD, I just use the enter key (still a default key) To run through the weapons I have. I sometimes use the number keys..

Well, I don't pay attention to my fingers much, they just do what I want them to, but I guess I use the default controls then.

I'm pretty satisfied with the default controls too....if someone switched or changed the keys (like my brother does every other week) I would most likely get totally confused and lost. So NYA.

I use the standard controls. As the old saying goes, "don't fix what ain't broke."

There is nothing wrong with the regular controls.
