Lightbulb What controls do you use?

The best controls that I have found are: M for fire, N for switch, B for run, and space for jump. You use your index finger for fire, middle finger for switch, ring finger on run, and your pinky and/or thumb for jump. If anyone knows any better controls then that then TELL ME!! Although I doubt there are any better controls on the keyboard.

I use the default controls, except that the other button for jump is "Z." They're good enough for me..;p

Default controls.

I use my right hand for movement and my left hand for changing weapons and shooting. I use caps lock to run.

I use the default keys, basicly. (Space to shoot, arrow keys to move, ctrl to jump, shift to run) I sometimes put caps on to run also.

I use 1-9 to change weapons, much faster than enter ;P

You all should really try my controls because with them your hand isnt stretched across a few keys, and they are alot easier to use when you get used to them. I just really hate the default controls and I use space, B, N, M and arrows for just about every game I play. These controls are also alot more comfortable for your hands when you play for a long time. Does anyone know if theres a way to change my user name? I wanted to change it to the one I use when I play JJ2

You'd have to make a new account, but then an angry admin might bite you.

In windowed mode, I use SPACE to jump because ALT in windowed things is evil. However, pressing ALT in windowed mode lets you do self lag.

Ah, I like my controlls just how they are, and I have no discomfort with them.

They are kind of like the WASD controlls of 3D shooters in a way, because the keys I use are around that area.

Arrow keys are all at their default values, of course.

Shift=Run
Z=Shoot
X=Jump
C=Change weapon

It works well for me, because they are all in a row, without my hand being in an awkward position, however I'd have to change the keys if I was to have someone else at the keyboard with me on multiplayer. It is only set up for one person at the keyboard.

Oh yeah, and if I don't know I am in chat mode, and try to jump, I may end up typing XXX by mistake

A:Change

In all my games, I change the controls to ASDF (and if I need more buttons, QWER, and ,./ for changing camara veiws)

I used to use a MICROSOFT sidewinder gampad, but when I upgraded to MICROSOFT Windows XP, it didn't work and had no patches.
Wee fun.

Yeah. I believe videogames rub microsoft the wrong way. :P

They are going to support them better in the next Windows. Game friendly, this next one will be.

well, this might seem odd but:

up: up arrow
dwn: down arrow
left: left arrow
right: right arrow
fire: left ctrl
select: enter
jump: shift
run: x


for some odd reason i never got used to the default controls. it just felt akward to me, maybe it's the wave (split) keyboard i am forced to use, cause my dad has carpal tunnel syndrome.

Left Hand
Up: E
Down: D
Left: S
Right: F

Right Hand
Switch Weapon: H or Y (my finger hits either one of the two so I just put them both on the controls)
Shoot: U
Run: I
Jump: O

I used to use the usual WASD with:
V as weapon switch
B as shoot
N as run
M as jump
Problem with that was keyjamming on my current keyboard, so i tried different combinations and found my current one to be the most anti-keyjamming there is

Oh, and dont think default keys are weird, I've actually seen people play with them and do fine, it still scares me though

I use the default controls, and my left hand is on the right control and right shift. I don't get how people can go to the left side control and shift. Seems weird to me =P

Actually, the only thing I change is that switch weapons is /. Enter is too far away and awkward.
