View Full Version : What keyboard setup do you use to play jk2?

05-16-2002, 07:52 AM
I was wondering what the best keyboard setup was so if you all post what key you bind to what then that'd be appreciated.

At the moment I use WSAD for movement and the numbers 1-7 as force powers but it's pretty inconvenient so there's gotta be a better way.

This isnt bad. I have been using a form of this since early April. I was a WASD style player for a few years (Q2, Unreal, HLDM) but needed to moves to ESDF to get access to more keys.

hmm, that looks interesting...i think i may try that setup when i get home. Thx for sharing

This is what I use...

Up Arrow: Move Forward
Down Arrow: Backpedal
Left Arrow: Strafe Left
Right Arrow: Strafe Right
Mouse Button 1 (Left): Primary Fire
Mouse Button 2 (Right): Secondary Fire
Mouse Button 3 (Middle): Jump
Mouse Wheel Up: Previous Weapon
Mouse Wheel Down: Next Weapon
Control: Crouch
Right Shift: Use

That's basically the only keys I use except to switch between first and third person view, I use the "P" key for that, which is the default.

These are the settings I use for all FPS games. :)

WSAD for movement
X jump
C crouch
F use selected Force
Z and V to switch force powers in game

i can hit F1 - F5 easily enough while moving, so using Z and V to switch powers gets me by pretty good in a game.

Forward: a
Backward: z
Strafe left: ctrl
Strafe right: alt
Attack: Mouse1
Jump: Mouse2
Duck: Mouse3

as for force powers, i have use the same buttons for each side, and i just use a toggle for em. script for it looks like this:

set darkforce "bind s +force_lightning; bind x +force_grip; bind d force_rage; bind c +force_drain; bind f force_forcepowerother; echo ^1Dark ^1Force ^1Powers"

set lightforce "bind s force_absorb; bind x force_heal; bind d force_distract; bind c force_protect; bind f force_healother; echo ^5Light ^5Force ^5Powers"

mines original

normal arrow keys for movment
numpad 0 for jump, numpad 1 for crouch, numpad 4 for push and numpad 5 for pull. K for duel, ctrl for taunt, and delete to cycle left, page down to cycle right, and end to use force power.

this is the setup i use and it works pretty well i think
w=weapon back
r=most used secondary force power
t=second most used secondary force power
g=change lightsaber style
v=saber duel
2=floating orb thingie
shift=stationary shield
mouse3=draw lightsaber
(using the rolling mouse button for push pull is a definite must)
890=3 most used weapons

i generally only use 2 secondary force powers but if you use more you can switch g to another force power and use h to change lightsaber style
