Well, the main reason I was using the left button to jump and the right
to run was the fact that all the weapon keys are easily accessible from
the left hand. This means you could use your right hand with the mouse
exclusively for moving and your left to shoot, pick up items, and switch
inventory items, etc. In my opinion that seams like an ideal way to play
Yah, I agree with Dark here, the mouse shouldn't be used just as a
replacement for keys only. The unique abilities of the mouse should be
utilized as much as possible to take advantage of its possibilities,
something that is going to take thinking outside the box.
I think Thomas mentioned using the mous buttons to jump, but why not
have the left button fire the weapon, scroll wheel change inventory, and
right button holster and unholster weapon? Then a modifier key could be
used for jumping in conjunction with the mouse.
Just a suggestion, but there are all kinds of possibilities that would
attract the gamer to use the mouse if it were more than a simple
replacement for pressing keys.
