                welcome aboard mate. Hope to see you online soon. Just shout out and let everyone know you are new. Hopefully we can get you into a round of Domination for some easygoing play to get your feet wet.

                I have a G5 but only with one mouse button. I use it to scroll through available weapons which I believe is the "F" key on the keyboard. Single shot, burst, M203 GL, hand grenade and what not. If I had a second mouse button I think I'd map it to push to talk or to the map.

                  I too have the equivalent of side-buttons (side-moving middle button), I map them : left side "TS push to talk"; Right side "Eject" (very handy); CTRL+Right side "Get Out" (you cannot eject when engines are off, this allow the use of the mouse button every time you want to exit a vehicle).

                      I have one mouse thumb button set to reload, the other to Binoc's (IMO an officers most deadly weapon). Then have the left and right scroll click of the mouse wheel set to Direct and Command channels. Contemplated having those to lean, but will get more use in the comms, saves me changing channels as I have the rest mapped to my G hotkeys on my G15. Just need VON to work now....

                      I stole my layout from PR, where I have bandages and reload on my side, and Bayonet and mumble direct comms on my scroll wheel tilt.

                        I have my left side-button on my mouse set to hold breath - by default every time you hold right mouse you hold breath, which isn't good if you want to zoom to look around (and you will, trust me). Makes it convenient for shooting.

                        Also left ctrl + 2xE for Eject - messing around with the action menu when you've got seconds to live isn't desirable ;)

                              bind one of those two mouse buttons to compass... Because you will encounter a lot of direction calling and bearing. K which is default might be inconvenient.
