What is your movement setup? or speed running setup?

Recommended Posts

I'm still trying to find the most confortable way to sr50, I was going to change my set up to qwes instead of aswd for movement and thought of asking for the most effecient/conforable set ups you guys might had that would be different?

I tried that and wasn't super fond of it myself, thats why I'm thinking of practicing qwes with a=left and d=right. I was confortable with aswd shift=left and space=right while my extra button on my mouse was alt, but I'v discovered juking enemies is easier walking so I'm now having a hard time finding a good run button with that set up.

My movement setup is:

Forward = W
Backward = S
Turn left = A
Turn right = D
Strafe left = Z
Strafe right = X

I have almost always used this setup.

Oh, and

Jump = Right mouse button

w: forward
a/d: strafe
right-mouse: strafe on
turn-left/right: mouse

so sr50 to the left would be: w+a+rightmouse+slowly_sliding_mouse_to_the_left

or in prb+ ultra cheater mode:

w+a+rightmouse is sufficient.

or in prb+ ultra-ultra cheater mode:

w. boom!

WASD = movement
right mouse button = strafe on
C = turn left
Alt = turn right
middle mouse button = jump if I'm playing something that needs it (Strife for example)

Forward = e
Backward = d
Turn left = not used
Turn right = not used
Strafe left = s
Strafe right = f
jump = mouse 2
use = spacebar
roll left = z
roll right = v
Use Item = x
reload = r
kick = w
quickturn = c
throw grenade = g
map zoom in = q
map zoom out = a
secondary fire = mouse 3

taunts are on my numpad

Relatively traditional WSDA + mouse setup, however for sr50 I set the strafe button as the middle mouse button. Makes it far easier to pull off, for me anyway. I almost never sr50 in deathmatch or duel though, its too finicky for me to really rely on it. I usually use it to escape huge hordes in SP and survival since you have just a tiny bit more time to react/maneuver.

I use arrow keys for moving forward/backward and looking left/right while strafing is A and S keys. I also hold the space bar for running and use ctrl and shift for fire/use respectively.

For vanilla + ports:

SZXC = movement
left ALT = strafe on + turn right

So, I press S/C/ALT to sr50 to the right (I have to drag the mouse left to sr50 left).

Also possible in vanilla!

I don't know can this be used at all, but I strafe50 like this:
W -- forward
D -- strafe right
Middle mouse -- strafe
just move mouse to the right -- turn right.

Am I a heretic, a genius or an idiot?

@bzzrak, neither, thats what Ribbiks is doing.

Is it considered TAS to use mechanical Keyboards that can be reprogramed like the G13?

I play with keyboard only, arrow keys for movement, hold shift to strafe instead of turn, ctrl to shoot, space to use. In advanced ports, X is jump, V or B is crouch, W/S is look up/down, C is center view, I/K is fly up/down.

WASD and ←/→ arrow keys to turn, unless my keyboard doesn't have arrow keys in which case I use or n/m

ESDF for basic movement,
A - Jump
W/R for fly down / up

When going fully keyboard, all above +
Left / Right keys for look left/right
Up for shoot
Down for alt fire or 180 turn depending on port

ESDF feels more natural than WASD.

WHAT!!? are you saying you don't use a mouse (or any form of electronic rodent) for control of images on screens right in front of your face during play of FPS games?

I typically use a pretty standard WASD+mouse setup, with the addition of using ZXC for inventory where it's applicable (as selection left, use item, selection right respectively).

But, I don't really speedrun.  That said,

That's what I would do, too.

There is also guy with name "Keyboard_Doomer" in ZDaemon. Pretty sure he is playing on keyboard only.

As for me, I'm using mouse.
WASD = move
Left mouse button = shoot
Right mouse button = jump
Middle mouse button = strafe on
Left arrow = turn left
Right arrow = turn right
Space - action
F - secondary fire
C - duck

well thats really somethin if Keyboard_Doomer is really only using the keyboard AND is really good at the game.  I would like to be sitting next to someone in the room looking at their hands who can play really well with only a keyboard.  If I were to get clinked in the head with a baseball ba nevermind...

W = Move forward

S = Move backward

A = Strafe left

D = Strafe right

Z = Turn right

C = Turn left

Right-Click = Strafe on

Shift = Jump

Ctrl = Duck

X = Fly down (if it's necessary)

 

So basically my SR50 combination is either one of these two methods: W+A+C+RC, or W+D+Z+RC

 

I used to use Z and C in reverse (Z for turning left, C for turning right), but my fingers feel more comfortable with the current way.

I use Shift to strafe on, and space to turn left. This means I can only SR50 in one direction. (Then I discovered this is a very old thread...)

wasd = movement

l-alt = strafe on

mouse1 = fire

mouse2 = use/open

l-shift = walk

q = bfg

e = plasma gun

 

all others pretty default

Left-Shift - forward

Z - backward

Left-Ctrl - strafe-left

Left-Alt - strafe-right

S - run

A - turn left

mouse2 - strafe-on

 

So, to strafe50 (to the left only) is Left-shift/Left-ctrl/A/S/mouse2 - 5 keys

I'm deep in the minority opinion that combining keys and always run are cheating.  

My setup makes it hard to change weapons since I cannot reach the number keys with my fingers without moving my hand.

I use this configuration for all games that require the standard WASD-type movement.  I'm not sure it was a good idea since the Windows Key or Q sometimes get pressed accidentally... and sometimes I go to rocket jump and I alt-tab instead; which never ends well.

I'm not sure what you mean.  Because I can't reach the number keys or that I don't combine keys?

It has the advantage of being able to just grab the keyboard without looking of course and just start playing instantly.  WASD is so... messy -- I don't "feel" that my fingers are on the right keys.

Changing it would require a long downtime of practice and I'm way too old for that.  I might die before I got back up to my current sub-par skill level.
