I wrote a small Windows program to automatically spray shots when I'm in the Emerald Mosque. Is that cheating?

that is the most potent key maping combo i've ever seen! It almost renders the tank invincible. I would highly reccomend that every one utilize such a feature :D :wink:

it is very easy you use tab as jup and q as fire. the two most used buttons(for me anyway) with im finger reach of each other no pun intended

that's very, very odd....... do you use kybd to move?

i use my mouse to move w/ my right hand, then i've set up everything else to be with in reach of my left hand on the kybd.

yeah, well, i think its easier to set the keys to suit yourself rather than using the pre set keys. i just can't see myself using the preset keys...... its soo weird. but then again, i do play other games that i use pretty much the same layout for... so, that could be part of it.

I used middle for jump once when I had injured my left hand and couldn't use it for a while. I prefer it drop flag though.
