View Full Version : controls mapping(best configuration?)

04-22-2002, 12:59 AM
How do you all configure your controls? I'm looking for a way to get all the key things close together so i dont have to reach across the keyboard to f1,f2,f3...etc for force powers and such. How have you all done your mapping? As of now the only thing i have done is made ctrl=jump, and straffing to be just left and right. I'm still thinking about how to do everything else. any advice is appreciated, thanks

I personally use the following controls:
a=strafe left
d=strafe right
z,x=change force powers
f=use selected force power
q=use current inventory item
],[= change inventroy items
shift=change saber stance
mouse1=primary fire
mouse2=secondary fire
mouse3=saber challenge
mousewheel=change weapons

I'm a light side jedi, so i've bound the following keys to some light force powers that i use alot

Well, that's what i use

movement is the default, but:

mind trick=Z

in SP I mainly just use push, speed, and pull

stay away from your arrow keys as movement. they don't always work together. Instead try to used wasd or esdf and bound force powers to keys around them

like every1 else i reckon i have the BEST config for FPS, its so easy to use, and you can activate FORCE POWERS without a seconds fuss...

been using the same BASIC setup since DUKE NUKEM 3D, trust me this is best

games played using setup: DUKE NUKEM, TERMINATOR2, JK1, HL, CS,TFC, MOH and now JK2

its very flexable, A=FORWARD Z=BACK S=JUMP X=CROUCH

then the CRTL and ALt to sidestep

i use Q and W to throw grenades in CS and TFC, but have FOUND IT GRRREAT to use Q =F PUSH W=F PULL

finally i use the WHEEL MOUSE to select FORCE POWERS!

good god,.... that has got to be the absolute worst conceivable layout possible, (lions)

it's illogical, and contorted,

E = forward
D = backward
S = strafe left
F = strafe Right
A = crouch
SpaceBar = Jump,
Shift = Use
Y = Chat
U = Team Chat
W & R weapon scrolling
Z&X force scrolling(that could be better, probably)
Q =screenshot

mouse wheel force push and pull,
one side button to activate force power(s) and the other to select the saber.

river dude!

its your layout that makes no sense :-))

E= forwards is okay, but A= crouch? wtf mate

mine is greeeeeeeeat, i KEEP middle finger on A,Z to move WHILSt always being able to USE FORCE POWERS, JUMP, USE ITEMS without lifting hand away from the key board!!!

i also use my 5 button mouse to the MAX! using the mouse to WALK, SCROLL FORCE POWERS ETC :p

hahahahaha :p

Here are the essentials for my config (which is constantly evolving):

bind e "+forward"
bind d "+back"
bind s "+moveleft"
bind f "+moveright"
bind SHIFT "+movedown"
bind SPACE "+moveup"

bind MOUSE1 "+attack"
bind MOUSE5 "+altattack"
bind h "weapon 13" //Thrown weapons
bind c "weapon 6" //Heavy repeator
bind v "weapon 8" //Flechette
bind 1 "weapon 2" //Blaster pistol
bind 2 "weapon 3" //Balster rifle
bind 3 "weapon 5" //Bowcaster
bind 4 "weapon 4" //Disruptor rifle
bind 5 "weapon 9" //Merr-sonn
bind 6 "weapon 7" //Demp-2

bind z "forceprev"
bind x "forcenext"
bind MWHEELUP "force_throw"
bind MWHEELDOWN "force_pull"
bind MOUSE2 "+force_grip" //Activates selected force power (lightning/grip/drain)
bind MOUSE4 "vstr forcecycle1" //Cycles btwn 3 force powers with each button press
bind r "force_rage"
bind t "force_speed"

bind g "weapon 1"
bind ALT "saberAttackCycle"
bind CTRL "engage_duel"

set forcecycle1 "vstr grip1"
set lightning1 "echo ^1LIGHTNING ^4DRAIN ^4GRIP; bind MOUSE2 +force_lightning; set forcecycle1 vstr drain1"
set drain1 "echo ^4LIGHTNING ^1DRAIN ^4GRIP; bind MOUSE2 +force_drain; set forcecycle1 vstr grip1"
set grip1 "echo ^4LIGHTNING ^4DRAIN ^1GRIP; bind MOUSE2 +force_grip; set forcecycle1 vstr lightning1"

The thing I don't like about your setup 3-Lions is that you need to use one of your movement key fingers to jump! Makes more sense to have all 4 (or 3) movement fingers free and jump with either your thumb or pinky.

By mapping forces that require a button hold (lightning, drain, grip) to the mouse, I again, free up my movement hand so my movement isn't inhibited while using these powers.
