Thread: the best gaming device for CS?




  1. #1

    Well, all the talk about HF and CS..I decided to pick up the platinum pack. I played the game only a few times...hmm Didn't last but a few seconds :)... I have been hanging around in the training area for the past few days and been doing better with the controls.

    My main problem is that I am using my mouse and keyboard since I can't get my Wingman digital extreme joystick to work (via game port). I have read a few articles about loosing features on the devices that connect using the gameport as compared to the USB port.

    Since then I bought a Microsoft Sidewinder gamepad but it look exactly like my cheap/old propad 6 by interact. I tried to set ip up in CS but it wont detect the movements using the up,down,left and right ....8way D pad.

    Now I am in seek of another gaming device that is perferred to be playing CS.

    any opinions or recommendations?

    My advice would be to use your KB and Mouse, a gamepad would be way too slow to be effective...

    I agree.. to play games like CS / HL properly, there is no beating a standard keyboard and a top notch mouse. People just don't play FPS games with gamepads / sticks.. that's why FPS games on console don't seem to be as popular as on PC (with a couple exceptions...)

    I find mashing my head into the keyboard gets me headshots everytime in CS.

    I am getting use to the keyboard and mouse...I guess I need to configure the controls to for my optimized performance...

    Anyone want to play with a newbie....but here are the rules...

    You can't fire upon me unless I fire upon you :)
    You can't sneak up on me or take a shot from behind or above :)
    You can't kill me with in 1 min of the game :)

    Ha!.....
    See, I told you I was not that strict!

    Yes, the KB + mouse have done for FPS's, what the stick shift has done for car racing, (opposed to a throttle)

    I cannot stand consoles anymore because of the lack of presicion in the controls. If you think you are good at a console FPS with a normal controller, give me a KB and mouse and I will beat the pants off you.
