  • Controls?

    After spending a good half hour setting up my controls last night, I came into the game tonight......and everything was back to the defaults. Not too happy about that.

    Has anyone else had that problem?

    Re: Controls?

    nope, and mine are all changed, because I'm left handed... I use my keypads for movement and the mouse with my left hand.

    Once you change everything, you are applying it as a whole on the front control options screen, right?

        what about your profile, is it using the one you made... ie: When I started the game it used "Chuck", I deleted that profile and made one "Magnum"... top left.

          Ditto.

          Slightly OT but did you ever come across a leftie mouse? I have a regular one with two buttons on the left side so I can hardly use them, real tough to hold a mouse with the left hand and press side buttons with the little finger :(

            don't even use those mouse buttons.

            But I do wish game companies would provided a profile in game for left handed players... would make it easier and quicker to get in game.

                Left handers should be erraticated from existence! Damn dirty lefties!

                On the other hand, being right-handed and left eye dominant really sucks when pistol and skeet shooting.

                  All of my video defaults do the same thing every time I join, so you are not alone Strag.

                    Re: Controls?

                    I am playing the demo, and after being thrown to the wolfs and poor graphics performance, I am getting things down.

                    First of all I put everything to the lowest setting, but the frame rates are moderate. I like what I see.

                    Now to the controls. Everything stays the same after logging off.

                    I read this out of the Gametwitch magazine Jan 2007.

                    left index finger.
                    F= Crouch
                    V= Prone
                    G=take weapons
                    R=Reload
                    T=toogle weapons
                    B=Binocs

                    _____________

                    Middle finger

                    D=stife right
                    E=tilt head right/boost on vehicle
                    C=stand up

                    __________

                    ring finger
                    S=back up
                    W= move forward
                    2XW= move quickly
                    X= dunno, need to double check this

                    ________

                    lil finger

                    Q= tilt left
                    A=strife left
                    Z=Teamspeak
                    Caps= in game VIOP
                    2Xleft Shift= walk mode, or go back to run mode (Note: very important option)

                    _______

                    Thumb

                    Space bar= Command

                    I really am liking this game. My favorite thing is the visibility and sick large space to move around.

                    My only complaint is that when in zoom mode, when you take a knee, you go out of zoom mode and then get reset. In BF2, you stayed in zoom mode when taking a knee.

                      team Demo

                      After experiencing a fair amount of players not useing or having global chat, I changed my teamspeak button to the space bar.

                      It is the Command button by default.

                      IMO the best button for quick communications while ording the squad around.

                      As a Squad member, it works just as well. Granted You will not worry about commanding.

                        Re: Controls?

                        No problems with ArmA forgetting my settings.

                        Having said that, only a couple have been set in game. The rest have been programmed using either Joy2Key, or the Nostromo Array software:

                        Keys as follows:

                        Cougar Stick

                        Button 3 --- Set in game menu --- Change Weapon/Ordnance
                        Button 7 --- Set in game menu --- Auto Hover On
                        Button 9 --- Set in game menu --- Auto Hover Off
                        Button 15 -- Set in game menu -- Toggle 1st/3rd person view
                        Button 11 -- Mouse Wheel (10) -- Mouse wheel up
                        Botton 13 -- Mouse Wheel (-10) - Mouse wheel down

                        Cougar Throttle

                        Button 19 --- Mouse Middle --- Mouse middle button (select)
                        Button 20 --- J --- --- --- --- -- Key VAC On/Off
                        Button 21 --- SCRLOCK ------- Key Teamspeak Mic On/Off
                        Button 22 --- F12 --- --- --- -- (Toggle) Center TIR
                        Button 23 --- F9 --- --- --- --- (Toggle) Pause TIR
                        Button 24 --- M --- --- --- ---- (Toggle) Map

                        CH Pedals

                        Left Pedal --- --- Mouse X Axis --- Rudder Left
                        Right Pedal --- --Mouse X Axis --- Rudder Right
                        Lt Toe Brake --- j --- --- --- --- --- Key VAC On/Off
                        Rt Toe Brake --- SCRLOCK --- --- Key Teamspeak Mic On/Off

                        Note: Mouse Wheel on the JS is used to bring up the ingame menu, and allows you to navigate (up/down) through it. Clicking the Radar cursor (Button 19) will act as the middle mouse (select) button. This way you can navigate the menu without removing your hands from the Throttle & Stick.

                        In game and Teamspeak Mic can be keyed using Left/Right Toe brakes as required. This frees up keys on your Nostromo if used.

                        VAC is Voice Activated Command (similar to Shoot) - http://www.dwvac.com

                        Nostromo n50

                        Key01 --- PgDown --- --- --- Prone
                        Key02 --- 2XW --- --- --- --- Sprint
                        Key03 --- W --- --- -- --- --- Forward
                        Key04 --- R --- --- --- --- --- Reload
                        Key05 --- NumP Enter --- ---1st/3rd Person View
                        Key06 --- X --- --- --- --- --- Crouch
                        Key07 --- A --- --- --- --- --- Step Left
                        Key08 --- S --- --- --- --- --- Back
                        Key09 --- D --- --- --- --- --- Step Right
                        Key10 --- C --- --- --- --- --- Stand Up

                          yes, but without consistency; sometimes only part of the settings change, e.g. my res goes from 1024 to 800.

                            Only using three Tabs. Squad/Vehicle+Weapon (as in Tank) Mgt/Comms.

                            Squad Icons will "illuminate green" when pressed, so you know which Squad members you have selected in game.

                            Compass/Binoculars/Watch/Map are all Toggles. But I'm off to try using the ESC Key to bring up the minimap as mentioned by TheBigC (have not tried this myself yet, just about to).

                            TheBigC (Talking about the inordinate delay caused by the map loading/unloading) "If you are all in motion, do not use the map. Use the "esc" key, that brings up a minimap which is completly zoomable and does not take any time to load or close"

                            Photo of how TB is "in reach" on the desk, and close up of Squad/Comms screen - all work in progress, as Icons are amended/adjusted/or added as more experience is gained with the game.

                              Here is another shortcut for you: Hold down the space bar and scroll the wheel mouse. This allows to select a team or and individual to give commands to with out having to hit the "F keys" or the "~" key.
