Here's mine:

Backward/Backpedal - Down Arrow
Left - Left Arrow
Right - Right Arrow
Primary Fire - Mouse Button 1
Secondary Fire - Mouse Button 2
Jump Mouse - Button 3
Switch Weapons - Mouse Scroller
Crouch - Left Control
Walk - Shift
Taunt - V or S
Say Bindings - W and D

I have the MS Stategic Commander (http://www.microsoft.com/products/hardware/sidewinder/devices/SComm/default.asp) and the MS Intellimouse Explorer (5 buttons + scroll wheel). If you haven't checked out the Strat. Comm., do so 'cause it's the bizomb. You can control character movement by moving the device around, and it has 6 buttons + 3 shift buttons (the shift buttons give the 6 control buttons all new key mappings). This gives you 24 possible key mappings right at you fingertips, without ever having to look at the keyboard. There are also two un-shiftable buttons right next to the others. It sounds complicated, but it's really very easy.

Here's the setup:

R mouse: Fire
L mouse: Move Forward (I started this in Doom, and haven't changed yet)
mouse wheel button: 2nd Fire
mouse wheel up: next weapon
mouse wheel down: prev. weapon
thumb button 1: Force Pull
thumb button 2: Jump

--Strategic Commander--
Controller Left: Move Left
Controller Right: Move Right
Controller Back: Move Backwards
Controller Forward: Force Push (sounds weird, but feels very natural)

(note: "S"=Shift, "B"=Button)
B1: Saber Stance
B2: Mind Trick
B3: Speed
B4: Lightning (or Seeing in MP)
B5: Heal
B6: Grip (or Absorb in MP)

S1 B1: unused
S1 B2: Taunt
S1 B3: Chat
S1 B4: prev. inventory
S1 B5: next inventory
S1 B6: use inventory

S2 B1: Lightsaber
S2 B2: Bryer Pistol
S2 B3: Stormie Rifle
S2 B4: Therm. Det.
S2 B5: Bowcaster
S2 B6: Repeater

S3 B1: Disruptor Rifle
S3 B2: DEMP 2
S3 B3: Flecette
S3 B4: Rocket Launcher
S3 B5: unused
S3 B6: unused

non-shift B1: Use
non-shift B2: Crouch

Also all the buttons are scriptable, meaning you can program multiple keystrokes to a single button, and you can re-program buttons on-the-fly (during gametime). I don't use the script feature in MP though because script-kiddies are asses.

I recommend the Strat. Comm. for anyone. It's only like $20 now, and if you don't like it, just return it (give it a chance though, it'll probably feel awkward at first.

Nice setup! When I get some extra cash I'll have to try it out. I just bought a router and 2 NIC cards so me and my sister can share my Cable Connection at the same time.

I've been using the setup I'm using ever since my Q2 days. :eek:

When I'm away from home, this is my keyboard setup:

<: Move Left
>: Move Right
L: Move Backwards
---(R Mouse is still Move Forward)
; (semicolon): Jump
/ (forward slash): Crouch
' (quote): 2nd Fire (or middle mouse button, if available)
R-ALT: Absorb
M: Force Push
N: Force Pull
O: Seeing
I: Speed
H: Heal
G: Grip
V: Lightning
K: Mind Trick
J: Taunt
[ (Left Bracket): prev. inventory
] (Right Bracket): next inventory
\ (Backslash): use inventory
1234567890: Weapons (and mouse-wheel if available)
ENTER: Lightsaber (easier that pressing 1) :saberb:
WINDOWS BUTTON: The one that gets me killed

I know this is a strange setup, but it's what I got used to back in the day, and it works pretty well.
