By using WASD you deny yourself any keys to the left of your movement keys! I use RDFG - F has a little bump on it on most keyboards to help you locate it without looking and you now have EWSXC available for binds! And your little finger should also be able to reach QAZ without too much trouble. To the right you have TYHNB not to mention 345 and v above and below! That's 17 keys! Add in ya 5 button mouse, space, and a few more your thumb can reach and surely you dont need more...?

    Num Pad works well for binds like 'good game', 'hello', 'OMFGHAXORAIMBOTWTF' etc...

    WASD is so Quake2, move on! Give it a go
    Of course, most lefty's use arrow keys...Actually it's the best setup, because the keyboard is perfectly designed around a right hand use of the direction keys. Particularly with the num pad, the home/end/del/pgup/dn cluster, alt ctrl and space, as well as a whole host of alpha keys conveniently and clearly spaced. It must suck to be righty's

    And another question, how can I force it to pick a certain weapon, if that weapon shares a slot with another(e.g flak and grenades, avril)?

    Meh, I use YGHJ so I can use Alt for jump and Space for crouch
    Puts your hand right in the middle of the keyboard too

    Alias is when u set a string of words to execute commands ingame.
    Aliases are just a different way of simplifying advanced binds.
    Ex.

    Aliases[36]=(Command="exec ONSBinds.txt| set input a DMBinds",Alias="ONSBinds")

    Aliases[37]=(Command="exec DMBinds.txt| set input a ONSBinds",Alias="DMBinds")

    When you have these two, in your User.ini, you will not have to put in the long string of code (exec DMBinds.txt| set input a ONSBinds), but will just be able to put DMBinds. The game will then recognize that and execute the commands in the alias.

    Thanks everybody(except for Kel)...

    The text files only require the aliases in them, nothing else, correct?

    No but idiots seem to magically appear to whine about questions everytime someone asks a question.

    I made 2 batch files that copy my user.ini from other directories into the System directory. Each user.ini has several different key binds. Then I made shortcuts of them and placed them in my Quick Launch. So depending on what I play (CTF, DM) I just click and it's done.
