I can't stand the default wasd setting on FPS. I have left mouse as primary, right mouse for walk (shift for run), wheel for weapon select. Then for control I have A as back, S and D as strafe. I also have all the force powers rewritten so they surround those three movement keys and are in easy reach. And I use Z for secondary fire. I find I have so much more control over what I do with this set up. It's my standard for all 1st and 3rd person games.

Your controls are weird, I like to have certain things grouped together, like I like my force powers in reach of my movement keys, attacking and such on my mouse, moving keys close together...heres my setting.

1-10: weapons
-: save quick
=: load quick
backspace: screenshot
\: throwable objects
q: force grip
w: forward
e: use
r: force lightning
t: taunt (:))
y: talk
u: team talk
i: none
o: none
p: third/first person
[: none
]: none
a: strafe left
s: back
d: strafe right
f: force push
g: force pull
h: force heal
j: none
k: none
l: light saber style
;: none
': none
z: force absorb
x: force sense
c: force speed
v: force drain
b: force protect
n: force mind trick
m: none
,: none
.: none
/: noclip, for when I accidently fall off a cliff and I need noclip fast :) (I only use it in the demo though, I don't cheat in the full game untill I beat it)
shift: walk
ctrl: duck
windows key: ripped off keyboard :)
alt: npc spawn chewie
space: jump

I am still using the cursor keys for movement. I know most people have moved on to using WASD, but I just prefer the old setup. Been using it since Wolf3D. Having a 5 button mouse helps to offset the lack of available keys.

This is my main key config...

ESDF - Forward, Back, Step Left, Step Right
SPACE - Jump
C - Crouch
SHIFT - Walk
CTRL - Use
Q - Quick (Force Speed)
W - Wound (Heal)
R - Repel (Push)
T - Mind Trick
A - Absorb
Z - Seeing
X - Protection
V - Pull
Y - Chat
U - Team Chat


The rest is default settings

i know a guy who ONLY uses the keyboard in JK2 ... no mouse at all ... and STILL manages to kick my butt repeatedly. hmm, guess that tells you what skills i have.
:rolleyes:

i'll probably set up JA like i do every other FPS, and just like my JK2 settings are ... all around the keypad, and mouse as well (although i'll use my nostromo n50 speedpad when the mood hits me :p ).

8,2,4,6 ... forward, backward, strafe left, strafe right (respectively)
5 ... crouch
. (or Del) ... walk
- ... force pull
+ ... force push
Enter ... alt attack
7 (or Home) ... sight (or sense in JA's case)
9 (or PgUp) ... speed
1 (or End) ... drain
3 (or PgDn) ... grip
/ ... messagemode3
* ... chat
Mouse1 ...primary attack
Mouse2 ... jump
Mouse3 ... lightsaber stance
Wheeldown/Wheelup ... weapon choice

that's all i need to *cough* TRY *cough* and hold my own.

I use WASD for walking around, space for jumping. Besides that I have all kinds of usefull binds set up around mij WASD keys, such as "OMG YOU CHEAT!!!11" and "VOTEKICK HIM!!!!11" :)

Furthermore, since I don't use attack, I have mouse1 bound to "LAMER!!!!!11" and mouse2 to "/amsit"...

...Yup. ( :p )

I'll probably be using the same as my keys for JO, which are:

Mouse directions for looking.
Mouse 1 - Primary Fire
Mouse 2 - Jump

Cursors - Forward/back/strafing

Shift - Force Push
/ - Force Pull
Return - Use item
# - Secondary Fire
' - Use force power
delete - walk
[ & ] - Inventory
z & x - Force Powers

and I've got various force powers bound on the numeric keypad, using the top-row number keys for my weapons.

It's more or less what I've been used to since JK, so it's just trained in now.

Oh, and does anyone else use inverted mouse? I can't do it the 'normal' way anymore :p

WASD - moving
ctrl - crouch
space - jump
q - speed
e - sense/seeing
r - push
f - pull
g - use force
c - protect
v - drain
b - lightning
n - grip
m - team heal (JK2 still)
z/x - previous/next force
mouse 1 - attack
mouse 2 - 2nd attack
mouse 3 (pressable wheel) - nothing (might put protect...)
mouse 4 - heal
mouse 5 - absorb
mwheelup - lightsaber stance
mwheeldown - next weapon (bit unlogical, but I switch stance a lot)
y, u, i, o, j, k, l - spawn various NPCs (messages and talk in JO)
1-0 and "-" - weapons ("-" for fists :rolleyes: )

BTW, don't you think light and dark powers should be able to share buttons in MP? You don't use both types in there after all...

Goddamn typos!

That must be why I own you at Outcast all the time!
Mwah Hah Ha!

(Just Kiddin' B, ya know it's all good :D )

Oh, I forgot, for accurate aiming I use the mouse:
Left: Primary Fire
Right: Secondary Fire
MButtonUp: Force Next
MButtonDown: Force Previous
MButton: Use Force

That says nothing about your skills, but those guys who use only the keyboard are all the same - they are the pros.

I know them, they go swim in a lake in winter because it's "so hot outside".

Never start a fight with someone who uses only the keyboard - you can't win.



Concerning my keyboard mappings:
It will be the same as in Jedi Outcast (or in any other fps), WASD, space for jump, ctrl for crouch, x for use. The various force powers are around the WASD, only the ones I use most (grip, mind trick, push, pull) are on the mouse. (5 buttons kick @$$)

WASD movement, I don't see how some people do without it. I have heal on Z, drain on X, push on Q, pull on E. It will have to change in MP though since you can't have both light and dark.

I can only cycle through my force powers one way. :eek: I manage though.

Nah. I kind of use one too. I use the Saitek GM2...

It's called the GM2 and has a mouse for the right hand that plugs in using something like CAT 5 into the pad that is on the left with a pinky key, two buttons for the two middle fingers, an eight way hat and button next to it for the index and a wheel and button for the thumb. It's great. Completely customizable and CHEAP.

(you know I'm jokin too! ;) )

Seriously though, do you use your mouse at the same time as your game controller? Or just when you're sniping?

Ha! I got me a Saitek P2500.
Only because I could customise it as close as possible with the Gamecube version of Jedi Outcast.

Mouse 1 = Normal Attack
Mouse 2 = Jump

Space = open
Up key = forward
Left Key = Strafe Left
Right key = Strafe Right
Down key = Backward

Ctrl = Alternate attack
/ = crouch
Numberpad 1 = force push
Numberpad 2 = force pull
H = Heal
Shift = Walk
. or L = Saber Type change

Mouse inverted

Might seem strange but I HATE wasd. I have a nice reach with my pinkeh so I can access everything quite easily.

Yeah, the sticks on a controller are pretty poor for accuracy. The mouse is better for sniping or using Turbo Lasers. :)

I was trying the game on my laptop and found that the little mouse knobby and the glide touch SUCK for playing games. Now I have to by a mouse for my laptop! How am I going to explain THAT to the wife?
