personally, i have the closest thumb key set up to be my panic-button (flares in craft, switch between primary weapon and sidearm...in cod that's where the knife is ), the other buttons are usually toggle gadgets and weapons, middle mouse click is the grenade, reload is on there too, for the rare ocasions when i strafe right while reloading, so i don't have to take my left index finger off the F button (ESDF user).
many people do put prone and crouch on easily accessible buttons, and if i remembe right you said something about having sprint on middle mouse button. personaly, i'm not comfortable with movement stuff on the mouse for some reason. i have crouch and prone on the keyboard, usually where my left pinky rests.
but all this is just me, you have to take like 15 minutes to play arround with it a bit and find what works best for you. that's the beauty on playing on gods only platform, you can tweak and customize every detail exactly to suit you and you alone. don't let anyone tell you that sprint on middle mouse is stupid, for example. it's not what i do, since i have had grenades there since forever, but if it works for you, do it!
I am getting VERY tempted by the Razer Naga, with it's 12 button thumb grid. Marketing seems to be primarily aimed at MMO players, but I really like the idea of being able to select weapons, run, crouch, melee etc from the mouse.
Any Bros got any experience of the Naga used for FPS?
I am getting on quite well with WASD, but still end up hitting the wrong key for weapons, melee, adrenaline etc which often results in my untimely end. Clicking the middle mouse button for sprint works really well for me.
If i was you i wouldnt get this mouse at all! I just find it to be very bulky with the 12 buttons on the side it just doesnt fit in the hand properly is a more of a pain that anything else. plus with the size of the buttons being rather small i find that you press the buttons around the button you actually want to press.
The G700 on the other hand is rather a good mouse if im being honest and fits well in the hand and seems to be a good reliable mouse that doenst seem to have too many problems with.
Yeah my old team mate just bought the naga a week ago and it really is hard to use and say you want to press number 2 you spend more of your time pressing 1 or 3 instead haha, Then with the G700 we cheekly went to a store and asked to have a go with it and it seemed a really good mouse so think you made a good choice there psijaka.
Well, my G700 arrived from Amazon this morning, courtesy of Royal Mail. I have resisted the temptation of plunging straight in; am going to have a long hard think on how best to set up the buttons etc.
But it certainly seems to fit my hand like a glove; all the buttons seem to be really easy to operate, with the possible exception of G10, the furthest forward ( short index finger!). The positioning and shape of the four thumb buttons, and the angling of the 3 index finger buttons is ergonomic genius.
Any suggestions on how to assgn the buttons? Sprint will probably remain middle mouse, and crouch jump will remain shift space bar ( I might be firing as I crouch).
With the layout I would set it up with what you feel comfy with and find you need to get to quickly. On my mouse i have my knife, both of my gadgets and reload currently i mainly have it set up like this as they are all things that i may need to access quickly and i dont want to be moving my fingers away from WASD which could disadvantage me in many situations.
It really is all about personal preference and what you feel you need to be able to press quickly such as crouch for some people it really is a personal thing
Started playing with the sensitivity switchings first; nice to be able to switch between ultra precise for longshotting and a higher sensitivity for general gameplay. Just scratched the surface though, may add a third uber fast mode.
Just started assigning mouse buttons to keystrokes; a lot to figure out, and I am going to ease my way into it, learning say 2-3 buttons at a time, to re-wire my brain bit by bit. Too much to take in otherwise.
Really pleased with the G700. As I said, fits like a glove except for 1 button, which is hardly a great handicap. I really don't think that I would get on well with the Naga's thumbpad.
Yes i certainly think you choice to better out of the two.
That is one thing that i love with gaming mice being able to switch the sensitivity in one clicks makes many things so much easier.
That might be a good way to think about it to be honest with you to do it bit by bit and changing them around to find what you like them maybe add only one much to see how that goes. As i bet in time of playing about with it you will only assign about 3/4 buttons.
