RPG for beginners: optimized input settings

Game pad and keyboard settings for RPG fans: Optimize your controller settings for RPG to prevent DEL-key accidents :->


Especially important in many Adventures is 'booster-drifting' (aka power-sliding or 3-key-drifting): It is essential that the keyboard processes all three pressed keys. Sometimes it is necessary to reassign the keys for the combination of left,right,throttle and break.

Tecfan about booster-drifting:"'If you can only drift in one direction, and not the other, it is because your keyboard has some limitations. Then you need to bind a second button as brake. To do this, in Trackmania, go to `Profile´ , and then `Inputs´.'"

The importance to hide the DEL key as good a humanly possible is often underrated. But it becomes painfully clear when DEL is pressed accidentally: Poor JumperJack, the latest Del-key victim might agree^^ that it is the most important key to reassign for a lighthearted RPG-experience.

JumperJack in TMX-Forum:

For left-handed folks (like Ned Flanders or C. Montgomery Burns :->) the next tip may not be an improvement, but for the many Trackmaniacs, that are right-handed, the assigning of the free-camera-keys 4,5,6,8 to A,S,D,W will bring some additional comfort. The left hand on the keys ASDW, like common in many games will make navigating with Cam7 very comfortable.
