Just a matter of curiosity...how do you have your controls configured in Halo PC? Do you use the keyboard/mouse combo or do you have a USB controller? Anything special about your devices?
I use the good ol' keyboard and mouse. My mouse has 5 buttons, though, so I can do a lot with it. Here's my configuration:
Move around - W, A, S, D (standard) Chuck 'nades - G Melee - Mouse button 4 (on the left side, used with thumb) or Shift key Fire - Mouse button 1 (normal click button) Zoom with scope - Mouse button 2 (right-click) Switch Weapon - Mouse button 5 (right next to 4) Use/Action - F Show score in multiplayer - Tab
That's pretty much all that's different from the standard default configuration. My layout was partially inspired from the layouts of Call of Duty and Medal of Honor, in case you were wondering why I have it set up like that.
So, how do you have your controls set up?
I like mine a lot, it's similar to the default Star Wars Battlefront setup.
move: standard w a s d fire: left mouse nades: right mouse switch weapon:tab use : e melee: f flashlight:v scope zoom: middle mouse or z crouch: c f1: show score t and y: all/team chat jump: spacebar
That's pretty much the exact same as Halo's default, except the flashlight. I guess that's how Battlefront is set up?
Yeah it is, I prefer it because you don't have to stretch your hand all around the keyboard to switch a grenade.
Here is my controls. I found that most people use the controls the default way in most games. forward w backward s left a right d reload r crouch f use spacebar jump e zoom 3rd mouse button grenade right click shoot left click switch grenade g melee x or c can't remember Also what buttons raises the console?
How I had mine set up w,a,s,d-movement spacebar- jump shift-Croutch left click-fire mouse wheel-switch weapons mouse wheel click-zoom right click-nades reload-r enter-e light f Melee-3rd mouse button switch nade-4th moust button
I do find it easier to use a gamepad in Halo than a mouse/keyboard. I don't play PC with a gamepad since it would be sucide.
for the console, us englih dudes press shift and ¬ (that's next to 1) but if your american, i'm sure it's different. anyways, i just use the bog standard halo controls, since that's what i'm used to.
No, in America, it's the same key. The only difference is, it's ~ instead of ¬. Either way, it ends up being the key next to the number 1 on the top row. You have to enable the console first, too.
Ok thanks. I wanted to play a new single player map i got but couldn't figureout how to rasie console.
Where in settings do I go to enable Console? I think it is in advanced in controls but it is darkend so i can't go to advanced.
Firstly (and i'm assuming you've got it) you get Halo Custom Edition There is an icon in the start->programs->Microsoft Games->Halo Custom edition->Halo Custom edition developer mode Then, make sure you've got the devmode trainer (it helps) That should set you up.
