Hi I was just wondering how many of you felt about the Lightsaber control and 3-4 button mice for the players that use them. I think Having more the 2 buttons for lightsaber use it an absoulte must. I did enjoy playing the original game but the light saber wasn't as fun as I expected after I downloaded the 1st demo that was release before the game. Raven IMO should utilize the fact that there are mice out there with many buttons and that could key into Saber moves ect. I have a Razer Boomslang myslef and its a good mouse but some gamers understandably don't wanna fork out the cash for great control and thats fine. Microsoft Opticals also have 4-5 buttons. Anyway here's my idea.
MB1 normal slash plus direction change based on strafing
MB2 fast slash that can be used in combo with normal slash for combo hits
MB3-Since this is normaly the scroll wheel it should be used and light saber special block that is a longer stonger block than the normal standing still auto block. This feature will also block behind attack strikes giving the player enough time to turn around. but if this button is used to block normal combo attacks it should leave the user open for damage on the faster attacks
MB4- Special Attack also based on direction and where your aiming. Low med high and if used after a sting of M1-M2 combos unleashes more harder to block attacks
finally MB-5 if players have it should be a Kick/Punch move if in Players are locked in saber special move/block mode for just about half a second this can be used to do minimal damage but break the lock. The player who lands it 1st should be in the advantage for a split second but the other player shouldn't be helpless. since they could use a jump force move or push to get out of it.
Just some idea's Let me know what you think.
I've thought about other stuff but this is getting kinda long and a want you to read it.. thanks
