My Mouse is a 5 button M$ Optical Mouse. My far left button is set to Grip I think at the moment. I am planning on changing that since I don't use grip that much. My main left button is set to Alt-Fire, my Middle/Scroll button is to change my weapon and light saber stance. My Right main button is set to walk/run forward, and my far right button is set to ignite/disengage my light saber.

Keyboard:

Ctrl = Primary Fire
/? = jump
space = crouch/roll
;: = backward
'"= use force power
[] = scroll through force powers
k= use
-= = scroll through invantory
ENTER = use invantory item
m=push
n=pull
p=3rd person View


Other than that i can't think of anything. Enjoy!!

- This is the same layout I've used since Quake II. Works for me.

Q W
A S D ML MM MR
Z X C (Mouse Freelook, Inverted X)
space

A - Jump ML - Primary Attack
Z - Crouch MM - Secondary Attack
space - Jump MR - Run/Move Forward
C - Crouch

X - BackPedal Q - Force Push (Grapple, other, etc...)
W - Force Pull
S - Sidestep Left
D - Sidestep Right


I've been thinking about getting one of those new Left-Hand FPS controllers. Anyone have one? How do you like it?

Key layout is personal preference but one useful tip I do have is this:

Mousewheel forward = push
Mousewheel back = pull
Middle Mousewheel = Use selected forcepower

It is unbelievable how push and pull become second nature using this combo. Especially useful in saber fights. Also if you have grip as your selected power try gripping into the air and then nudging the mousewheel forward to send people flying wherever you want them to go (Big drops are my fave).

Now that is a great Idea. I am trying that when I get home tonight. =D Thanks!!

The wheel mouse is a saviour. I've also had it on push and pull for a while and I love it. It's so easy.

My two buttons on the mouse are primary and secondary fire. I can't get my button 3 to work. I have to work on that some more. I want that as change saber stance.

esdf - movement
v - crouch
x - use (more for singleplayer)
aq - cycle weapons
wt - cycle force
r - use force
z - lightning (don't like it there though, need to move)
shift - grip (don't use it much though)
c - don't remember

I need to remap some of my force powers, the ones i have now aren't intuitive and I don't use them that much anymore. I use light mostly.

Any suggestions for powers such as seeing, heal absorb and speed.

ESDF - forward, back, strafe l/r

mouse1 - primary attack
mouse3(wheel button) - secondary attack
mouse2 - jump
mousescroll - change weapon (don't use much)

space - crouch
B - bacta

R - push
W - pull
(these two are really handy)

QTAGZXCV - used for remaining force powers

CAPLOCK - change saber style (also handy)
SHIFT - walk
CTRL - use (single player)

Finally I've seen someone else who uses mouse2 as jump!

Thomase you don't know how happpy you've made me! And you're first post too! hehe

My 5-button:

mouse1 - primary-fire
mouse2 - jump (don't quite know where/what game I started this)
mouse3 - alt-fire
mouse4 - speed
mouse5 - lightsaber-style
wheelup/down - Force Push/Pull respectively (it's so intuitive and always handy)

Keyboard:
esdf - for movement

q/w - weapon cycling
r/t - force power cycling
g - use item
v/b - cycle items
c - use
shift - use force
space - duck

Just a question, where/why did you start using mouse2 as forward? I've seen a few other ppl using this on other boards for other games and it just seemed odd to me.

That would hurt my hands so bad. I have a natural KB and the 'fg' and 'hj' keys area seperated. OUCH!!!

I'm both left-handed and a dane. This means I have to opt for a somewhat non-standard keyboard layout, as many keys have been swapped arounf to make room for the letters , and that are common in my native tongue.

Arrow kays - movement
Shift - jump
Ctrl - crouch
end - use force
delete - next force
page down - previous force
insert - use bacta
enter - change saber style
insert - next inventory
page up - previous inventory
home - use inventory item
mousewheel - change weapon
click mousewheel - force push
backspace - taunt
t/y - chat/team chat
x - open console

Seeing as I mainly play duel games, I like the idea of mousewheel up and down for pushing and pulling. I think I'll re-bind it for my next game. I can always use keypad 4 and 1 to go back and fowards through my weapons list
