What Key Mapping Do You Use?

Post by Guest »

Hey, I'm interested to see what keys everyone uses for things.
Here are mine:
* I am a keyboard player.
Shoot = c
Jump = x
Look/GM Look-on = z
Second Shoot = ` (Rarely Used!)
I have 4 radar settings (as opposed to 3) On numbers 1 - 4 and 5 and 6 are to zoom in and out respectively.
Drop Flag = Space
Talk to All = n
Talk to Team = m
Talk to Individual Players = , and .
Talk to Admin = /
Hide Radar = q
Hide Chat window = w
Hide scores = e
AutoPilot = r or 9
Hide flags on radar = h
Hide flags on screen = j

Thats about it.
Now tell us (You dont have to list them all if you don't want to. ;) )

My tab key is starting to wear out. :P

I am a default mouse user, except on my laptop, which I don't always have the USB mouse for. I have the ] (and TAB) key mapped to jump.

on mofo and places like that i use mouse/tab as defaults, silvercat/GU/ducati i use arrows, enter to fire, '(") to jump(if allowed) and \ as a second fire, but i am slowly moving to just mouse, as it allows for more speed control.

z to fire
space to jump
a to lock on
q to drop flag
d for slow motion

and everything else is default I think (I use the arrow keys).

I'm a mouse user, and the keyboard is default except:

1,2,3,4 are various zoom presets
mouse wheel is bound to radar zoom (what would usually be 4 and 5)
left mouse, e, w keys for extra fire mostly use left mouse and e

The zoom can be modded by hand editing the client config file.

are you left handed? i'd find it a bit difficult to shoot with my middle finger

anyway i just use the defaults; tab to jump, 12345 to adjust radar and mouse to shoot, look and lock on.
Could this tank perhaps go a little bit faster, so it's not being overtaken by stationary objects.

Default except for enter, which I set to shoot, comes in handy when you just want to spray shots.

I think he might mean the other enter button or the "hold-down-enter-or-return-to-shoot-really-fast" technique, which I do a lot.

I'm a mouse user and I use the default controls.

Man, that sounded like one of those old Apple commercials at the end, didn't it?
