So what's your key-setup for maximum destruction?

I'm interested in seeing how others of the Hawken community setup their key-bindings, particularly gamepad users. I posted my own below. I did my best to get all the in-game necessary keys mapped in a very fluid and comfortable setting on my 360 gamepad.

So what about the rest of you? k/m and gamepad players alike, what's your ultimate keybinding setup? :D

P.S: Leave the childish bickering of "k/m > gamepad" outside of this thread and hopefully off the internetz. Everyone has their preference.

So you roll your face across your keyboard? Interesting.

shouldn't your primary be mapped to the left trigger, etc? from the img you posted its crossed and i'd imagine a bit awkward.

Contrary to the slogan, resistance is often not futile.

But hey, I think I play decently considering the lack of controller aim-assist in this game.

actually, it is easier for me to have the primary on the right trigger, since every other game has the primary on RT as well. You get used to it pretty quickly.

Actually, considering there are now 3 gamepad users here... does anyone else find this? I can't find a way to reduce the sensitivity of the thumbsticks (which is naturally very high on the Onza due to the longer sticks) in order to achieve steadier shots. On top of this, as I said, it feels like there is no controller aim-assist in this game at all.

Sometimes I switch the shoulder buttons and trigger buttons depending on how derpy my hands were when I woke up that morning.

I use the default control scheme. I had no problem learning it, and it isn't really hard to play with them.

I agree with him, I use the default control too.

The key mapping isn't that complex, well sometimes i still press R for reload when i finished shooting someone and cause me to launch my shield, even though you don't need to reload here. Habit of playing CoD or other FPS game

I would imagine that there isn't any.  It would also surprise me a heck of a lot if it was ever added (as well as disgust me).

No offense intended, but this isn't a console game/port.  If a controller works well for you, then cool beans, I'm glad it's working out for you, I'm in no way taking a side in the 'controllers are for nebwz' camp (I have a 360 controller plugged into my machine right now for other games).

That being said, if this was added, my levels of disinterest in playing would sky rocket.  I'd suggest a way to only play with others that are not using it, but I would imagine that some 'workaround' would be discovered and force-enable it, no matter the match settings.  It's just better to not have it to begin with.

(I don't mean to necro threads, I'm just almost always running behind.  My apologies)

Yeah that is very true and has happened in at least one other game I can think of. As I said though it would be nice if there was AT LEAST a way to adjust the thumbstick sensitivity due to how sloppy they naturally are compared to a mouse. Adjusting the mouse sensitivity in the options does nothing and I could not find any way to alter it outside the game (control panel, etc.). If someone can point me in the right direction that would be great.

I understand completely that I am putting myself at a slight disadvantage for using it in the first place and that it will not be supported in the same way, it would just be nice to be able to aim a little more consistently.

I rebind all my keys to a combination of Jumpjet and Fire then smash my face on the keyboard repeatedly.

(default keys)

Unfortunately, Microsoft seems to leave this to the controller manufactures (adjustment software), and hasn't bothered to do much of anything with the controller panels in Windows.

You might take a look at this: http://code.google.com/p/x360ce

I've seen some really good words spoken about it and what it can do for controller tweaking.

My God, I have been looking for a way to reduce that sensitivity since I first plugged in my controller... It literally makes the SS twice as hard to play how it should be.

edit: and I am actually happy about the lack of aim-assist, because it is actually me getting kills, not me and the computer :P
