    Arrow keys, space, LCtrl for gun and RShift for running. I've never strafed one day in my life. Can't see the use.

    No strafing?! Ha, that's cool. How do you turn quickly, holding shift? I wonder if a 'turn-around' button would be useful, a la Resident Evil 4..

    I only use the mouse, keys to switch weapons, keys to go to menu/save, and space bar to open doors and push pushwalls. Don't use alt and all that.

    Back when I had no choice but to play with a keyboard only as I was on my netbook, I used the arrow keys. I could strafe better on keys only but I can more quickly pop out and shoot and pop back in with a mouse if the way I have to go isn't a straight line.

    I turn around quickly by turning my mouse around quickly.

    My controls:

    Sprint - Left Shift
    Use - B
    Fire - F
    Strafe - Alt


    Movement - Arrow keys


    Though I have a laptop, I use the mouse if I need a little extra boost to the sprint.

    PRE-SDL:
    Movement: 4, 5, 6, 2 on the keypad for left, forward, right, and backwards
    Fire: 0
    Open: +
    Run: Enter
    Strafe: Left control

    So aside from strafing, I use just my right hand to play on the keypad.

    POST-SDL:
    I don't play much in regards to SDL mods, but when I do I use the default keys

    On SDL I use default controls.
    On DOS, I just do a minor change: Run is set to LShift Razz



    Let's think of a siggy... Well, I'd rather nap... :O

    Oh yes that hotkeys bullshit is annoying. It's happened to me on occasion when checking for pushwalls in longer stretches.
