Keyboard, or Xbot controller. And why.
That's interesting. I've never used an actual hitbox but I've always assumed the thumb would be .A little different since the thumb is jump whereas I think most keyboard players use 'w' for jump(?).
Yeah, I found that, too. Tried the space = jump for a bit, but the space key is just so huuuuge and feels ... not as snappy as a letter key. I tried it with j, k, l as the other directions, and the hand position was pretty bad, too. Now I'm thinking j, i, o might have been more ergonomic. Or k, o, p plus the right Alt key, if that is even possible. Oh well, I'm back to i, j, k, l, though I'm painfully aware that my middle finger needs to do a lot of work. Still, it's way better for me than a game pad.(Incidentally, the spacebar on my keyboard is a little fiddly, that's why I used V instead.)
That's not hitpad layout. The thumb controls the jump on hitpad (unless you rebind it).If you can, get a Ps4 Pad, they are the controller of choice for people who play fighting games and don't want a fightstick, I'd totally avoid the xbox controller because the dpad sucks and playing fighting games with the analog stick isn't that great.
If you want to use a keyboard, make sure it's mechanical and set the keys so they feel comfortable, i'd recommend wasd for up-left-down-right and numpad 4 for low attack, numpad 5 for mid attack, numpad 2 for high attack and numpad 1 for magic attack, this way you can easily switch to a hitbox and keep the muscle memory for the combos (or even a fightstick, though with more difficulty considering the wasd > lever change)
Agreed. I wonder what use case Microsoft had in mind for that dpad. Like, what kind of games were they expecting that design to be good for?I'd totally avoid the xbox controller because the dpad sucks
That's interesting. With that setup, are you using two fingers to cover the four attack buttons? Not criticizing, just curious. (If you're using four fingers with that layout it seems like they'd be all bunched up in a little square. I have numpad 456 for light-mid-heavy, each with its own finger, and then my thumb on numpad 0 for magic. But I'm no pro, and you might know better than I do.)numpad 4 for low attack, numpad 5 for mid attack, numpad 2 for high attack and numpad 1 for magic attack
