What kind of controls do you use?

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
I'm just interested to see how many people actually stray from the WASD setup that is usually default with most games.

Here's some of what I use in really any FPS game:

Forward: RMouse Button
Back: A
Left: W
Right: E

Crouch: S
Zoom: F
Prone: Z
Cycle Weapons: D
Use: Q
Fire: LMouse Button

That's pretty much the "main" keys that I can think of.. I really can't even use the WASD setup, I've been using this for years and years, I really like it, although it's quite a bit different.

Really? I've never really played much on a console, I'm not sure I'd do so well... lol, but I know some people that are crazy on one, so I could see that working out really well.

WASD for movement

E - Activate
F- Melee
Control - Crouch
R- Reload
V- alternate activate if you can lean
Space - Jump
Alt or ~ for voice
post #7 of 42
always WASD for me, although I always use E for reload, throwback from when I started FPS gaming on red faction! Also always use shift for crouch and ctrl for walk/run if its an option. Other than that I keep defaults!

How did you come to use R mouse for forward? Very different indeed!

I've never been able to find a decent spot for voice on the keyboard... I feel like I have to stop moving, fighting, etc.. just to talk, but I've invested in a logitech g500 mouse and use one of the buttons on it for voice now, just have to move my thumb a bit.. works pretty well.

Only thing I don't like about it, is that I can't reboot my computer with it plugged in, it just won't POST.. all of the mice I've had from Logitech have been like that though, hopefully once I get this new system I'll be able to!

Just what I've been using since I started playing FPS games, I have an uncle who owns a gaming center and we'd always be up there playing games with my cousins and friends, it was just what my cousins used, and what they introduced me to using when I first started.

I've used WASD controls long enough before to be used to them when I first started BF1942, but I really play much better using these controls.. I feel like I can do more without having to stop something because I don't have enough fingers , taking the forward off the keyboard opens it up a bit more for me I guess.

Melee: Shift
Sprint/Steady: Alt
Lean L/R: X & C

I also always have my mouse inverted, and my sensitivity is usually pretty high. I have it set to use the 5600DPI setting on the Logitech software, and the slider in the Mouse settings in the control panel is a little over halfway, other than that I usually just tweak the default sensitivity in games a bit to get it where I'm comfortable.

Your boot order is probably getting messed up by USB devices. I'm not sure, but since several logitech mice have internal storage, your computer may be trying to boot from them. Try adjusting your boot order or disabling booting from usb devices.
