Keyboard Layout

From CryGaia Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Default Key Bindings are accessed from the Controls Menu.

Like all modern computer games they are based on WASD movement keys, with other functions assigned to memorable keys based on their first Letter (e.g. 'B' for Browser and 'J' for Journal). This may not be the most ergonomic layout for you, so the defaults should be treated as an opportunity to customise, not a rigid set-in-stone standard.

An alternative set of Key Bindings

An example of a useable customisation is given below. As keyboard layout and use are subjective this is "A" layout not "The" layout. For example the ability casting keys are given preference over the movement keys, and it is obviously designed by a right hander who uses touch typing home positions rather than WASD (it was actually based on a Razer Nostromo(tm) but with macro keys like Attack Stance + Sprint separated for clarity)
