I was wondering about PC gaming controls. I recently got a new macbook, and I was into the idea of being able to play some games on it, but at first the controls were putting me off, cos movement is on my right hand,so I didn't get it. I just tried mapping the controls the other way round, so movement of the character is on the right, and its a lot better. So I was wondering
- Is there an optimal way to play? Like a recommended way of mapping controls - The internet tells me theres a way to use a PS4 controller on games, if your on windows. So I was wondering if I could possibly do the same for mac.
Yup. Once you've played a few games you can either map to whatever you want or pretty much guess the controls for most stuff like fps, obviously strategy games are different. Lots of platformers use z and x do stuff and also since console ports you get on screen prompts and tutorials for some things so you don't even need to figure out the controls.
When I first began properly gaming on PC I used the directional arrows for movement, so binded everything to the right, however this proved to become a real hassle, because with every new game I had to rebind, find buttons setups that were comfortable. So I just got fed up and used WASD. I usually only have to adjust a button or two in games these days and I'm good to go. Plus it's just superior anyway.
