Damn, guess all those videos are lying then, showing dexterous precise movement with a mouse.
I know that it's possible to use
a mouse precisely, but I'm not about to put in the kind of practice that would be necessary to get to that point - and having to manually line the vehicle up with each lane is inherently
less precise than pressing a key that does it automatically, regardless of how well anybody pulls the maneuver off with a mouse.
Don't ever buy a console then, they force you to use use their pre configured keys, no change from ABXY/▲●■X
At least AS gives you more than one layout to choose from.
I can't even wrap my head around what you're trying to say here. Audiosurf
has exactly one layout to "choose from" (otherwise, I wouldn't have started this thread), and that comment about controller buttons is both needlessly snide and dumbfoundingly stupid. (Seriously, what on Earth could you possibly have meant by that? Do you even know what a control configuration is
I should point out, mouse is considered better because moving between lanes with a keyboard is much slower than when using a mouse as the game limits the horizontal speed of the ship and has an acceleration/deceleration curve attached. This means you can move across the entire road in 2 or 3 frames with a mouse at high sensitivity whereas you're looking at much longer with the keyboard.
I can tell you right now that there's no way that I'll be that good with a mouse in my lifetime.
But that's besides the point if you're happy with keyboard.
Thanks. Nice to see a voice of reason here.
There's not really an answer other than trying some other keybinding software possibly.
The one that I used works by rewriting the registry, so I doubt that a better option exists short of physically rewiring my keyboard. The only explanation for its failure that I can think of is that, since I left the actual 1, 2, and 3 keys alone, Audiosurf
is still treating them exclusively as inputs. I'll see if monkeying around with it some more doesn't get results. Update: it didn't.
Don't expect a change in Audiosurf though, we've not seen a serious update for it since the end of 2009.
Ouch. Why is this board still around, then?
If you're willing to make the investment then you can use a 360 pad with the game as well.
Not interested at all, but thanks for the tip.
