Skip.

Controls on the first two are way too clunky and they're Nazis about what keys you're allowed to use when reassigning them.

The fuck? They're not nazi's on assigning keys. I remapped a lot of keys for the short time I played it. Maybe you were doing it wrong.

This is ArmA 2, though. I haven't played the first.

Unless they patched it in recent months, there were several keys around the arrow keys I was barred from assigning to anything. It really sucked because there's so many controls I needed to move to the right.

use WASD already jesus fucking christ. there is absolutely no argument for using the arrow keys as if it's 1989 or something.

Left hand mouse, right hand keyboard. There are more keys surrounding up/down/left/right than WSAD, which is beside the fucking point. Why offer keyboard customization if you're going to pick several keys that a player can't use?

Tried it. The offset of the I drives me just as nuts as that of the W.

Looks like a future version as well. Lots of weird-looking tanks and helos.

nah, just the isreali merkava and the comanche chopper, which never went into mass production.

Using the numpad as your hand center as a lefty usually results in not one (as with WSAD) but two gaps to either side of your hand. To the right is nothing and to the immediate left is only ten usable keys. Lefties who use the arrow keys have like 47 keys within immediate reach, and it doesn't help us when developers disable several perfectly good keys in the region.

How about I just buy an Xbox if I want to do that? Also, good luck fitting all the Arma functions on a 360 controller without dealing with a nightmare tangle of comm roses.

This is great for WSAD and numpad users who have a giant open space to their left or right, but doesn't look practical for me for a number of reasons:

1) I have about fifty keys within reach of the arrow keys already. Why should I have to spend more money and learn a new key layout just because a few developers don't think it's important to let you bind \, backspace, CTRL, ALT or ;, to name a few?

2) Sometimes I'm sitting way back on a comfy chair to reduce eye strain with the keyboard on my lap and the mouse on a hard pad right next to it. If I adopted that thing into my routine, I'd have to stick it and the keyboard on a hard base to keep them within consistent distance from one another. This would be both clumsy and make it more difficult for me to keep it balanced on my knees when using the joystick.

Interesting I'm left-handed I just use the mouse in my right hand though.

If I did that, I'd probably be using WSAD (but complaining about the off-set W).

Oddly, gradeschool teachers tried to get me to use the mouse with my right hand. Some sort of leftover thing from trying to get kids to be right-handed, I guess.
