Let me reiterate, I have been lurking here for 10 or so years... Blues has a Forum? Isn't every news post a new forum topic, essentially?

Yes, but they basically vanish after two days, (or a week if it's large enough to be in the popular threads category) and our thinking at the time was that this caused certain hotly debated topics to keep spilling over from comment section to another, like the current #gamergate (my apologies for using that terrible term) discussion is doing.

So we figured that if we had a forum, we'd all just take that kind of stuff to the forum so we didn't all keep repeating the same points in 5 different comments sections.

It never really happened, unfortunately, so Frans/Blue did quite a bit of work for little pay-off. Sorry about that, Blue.

Well, I did create some of those threads....and I actually reference some of them for MODS, etc.....hope others get use out of them as well...

F = Jump
V = crouch

? What do you do with games that give you a distinct advantage when you crouch+jump? Gives you a 6inch to 1 foot increase in jump when you crouch AND jump......a weird deal in some games, but gets you to places you would NOT be able to with your setup..... ie: Counter Strike games. To get on boxes you MUST crouch then jump. They are used together, not one after the other.

Morons didn't learn from the NFL Ray Rice thing.....just stupid. Money before common sense. The only thing ANYONE in the NFL cares about is $.

I applaud the large corporations (Carlson company in particular) for pulling out their sponsorship so quickly.

Maybe this is the year the NFL loses their tax free tag. Would be nice.

Wow. 10.5 points? Taking the Vikes in the spread league....

Not sure, but if you look at google, there are a LOT of people that are upset that games don't allow for config of RMB as forward.....

Yeah, RMB for move forward crew 4 LIFE!!!

I still bind RMB to move forward in all first person and third person games. I guess I'm insane.

FO LIFE!

I will never stray.

So my config comes about when I played competitive Quake 1v1. I was a very good player in my circles, but then dialing into people all over the map, I would ask them what their configs were, and found that high level players at the time were NOT using WSAD for various reasons.

When I switched to RMB, I found it has many advantages. Circle strafing is easier/quicker, as is forward backward movement, as my left hand never has to leave the kb. It may not seem like a big deal to you, but as a hardcore FPS player and competitive junkie, moving from W to S is a LONG time in competitive matches. And having my left hand one over from home row is WAY MORE COMFORTABLE in long play instances.

Also, using RMB on the right hand with shoot, allows one to eat/drink while playing.

A huge benefit, my middle finger can always find that little notch on the kb (backwards) to get me to my setup quickly if left hand is off the kb or using an accessory for other games, etc.

Anyway. Cheers. I like these conversations and often find myself trying different things out. But I have converted A LOT of people to Forward = RMB and have seen their play increase dramatically.

The downside, pain in the ASS to setup controls, esp on games that don't allow much config of default controls..... (setting up a game like ARMA SUCKS!)

I had one friend who was probably the best duke3d player i've ever seen (Tsunami on the old T.E.N. was always in the top 10, and won quite a few big LAN parties i attended with him in So.cali, he used spacebar to move forward)

I have seen that with high level players as well. A variation of my RMB that allows for the middle finger to do something else. I assume his middle finger is also reverse.

RMB - Jump
HAHAH WTF!?

I am more concearned about Facebook...

My wife had her privacy "ah-ha" moment. She had a friend pass away recently, so she uploaded a bunch of photos from 20 years ago - and it tagged and linked everyone in the picture that was on Facebook automagically. It took her by surprise and freaked her out a bit....

Yeah, but FB can't arrest you, hold you indefinitely and ship you off to Gitmo.

Some Gen X and Gen Y (and whatever the teenie boppers are called) would think it is the same thing if their account was deleted or blocked.

And seriously Cutter - are you really that worried about being arrested or detained? sheesh.....
