My setup - not that you care...
Well, I got a bit bored today and decided to make some pictures to show how my keyboard and mouse is set up. It turns out I have quite a lot of key used so I had to use three pictures to show it.

Of course there are keys relevant only for L4D - and that's the setup in the F-Keys picture and the Chat-Keys picture. The keyboard/mouse-setup for movement and for fighting (the Game-Keys picture) is something that I have used with very little change for the last 12 years in various FPS games. This setup started early when I played SOF2 - except the thumb-keys were used for leaning left/right in that game and MOUSE3 was used for throwing knives :) Oh man I miss SOF2 !

What's probably most unusual part of my my setup is that I always use MOUSE2 for "+back". People usually find it strange that I use left hand for "forward", "left" and "right" but use right hand for "back" but this setup works for me and allows me to only move my fingers _very_ little while moving around and fighting. The same goes for using right thumb for "push" - I can do that while still moving around and shooting without wasting a millisecond.

Using the thumb for both "push" and "screenshot" means I take a lot of screenshots during fights without even wanting to :) I probably have the largest collection in the world.

Anyway ... if you care then look at the pictures below.

Anyone else have an unusual setup ?

Yup. I use A-S-X. It's a much more relaxing and natural hand position when you have as wide shoulders as me 😄

That's a pretty unique key assignment. I just use the default keys.

No, I do not use 'Z'. I would have to move finger from Forward which I do not want to. Trust me-my method works better :-)

I've always wondered if it would be possible to use a two-mouse method and eliminate the keyboard but I have never really gotten around to testing it. I expect it would be difficult to set up.

I still set my keys similar to how I did in SOF/SOF2 as well. I still fire up SOF2 multiplayer from time to time for a little CTF. Amazing that a lot of people still play.

OFF TOPIC:
I rarely play it these days because of bot-servers and crappy non-standard maps. But 2002 to 2008 were the best gaming years of my life and I have 2000+ recorded demos to replay when I get old :-)

What, no back walking?
I can play without it to, just fine..
But is a good for evading in a emergency situation.

Sigh... read again! I run backwards much of the time. I seldom turn around. I strafe and I backpedal a lot. If you watched me play you would see that view is very steady - more steady than with most players - precisely because I go forward, strafe and backpedal a lot rather than turn from side to side or 180 degrees.
