Title: Best keyboard control scheme?
Post by: Martin456 on September 02, 2014, 04:56:24 pm
Hello,

I'm finding the bosses where you have to repeatedly double-jump and spam shoot really awkward to input. I've tried the default scheme of shift for jump and z for shoot but my little finger is too weak and buckles every now and then. The best combination i've found so far is the arrow keys for movement, space for jump and D for shoot (middle finger feels strongest)... but this still feels kinda awkward when you have to spam the double-jump and shoot many times whilst avoiding projectiles.

Has anyone found a really nice combination on the keyboard for these kind of platformers?

Thanks
- Martin

Personally I find the default scheme the best. How are you positioning your hands when you shoot with your little finger (pinkie?)? I think most people end up with their index finger on Z and middle finger on shift.

Back in the day my shift key was jammed, so I used the up arrow for jump and spacebar for shooting
