Pac the Man 2 - A fun diversion from reality
Authored by: ky11x on May 13, '03 04:50:38PM

Do you mean that you don't like the keyboard in general (as in, you prefer this game to be controlled by mouse/joystick)? Or do you just mean that you don't like those particular keys? If it's the latter you can remap the keys to whatever you like (on my iBook the arrow keys are too small so I remapped them to i-j-k-l).

Pac the Man 2 - A fun diversion from reality
Authored by: Bob White on May 14, '03 03:04:12AM

I mean just what I said. I can't control games well enough with keys to enjoy them or get halfway decent scores. Yes, I want mouse or joystick control. By the way, that's how PacMan was played way back when it was introduced as a plug-in cartridge on brand new Atari 400's. But, seriously, I have never been able to master switching keys quickly enough for most games. My fingers aren't slow. (I type around 60 words/minute.) I liken it to the fact that some people can never master using chopsticks. Both key controls and chopsticks are simple but not all people can master them.

Yeah, i guess it depends on the person. When I was a young'un I played the original Pac Man in arcades and i hated the controls. Later on the Atari version with the joystick worked a little better but still I couldn't get it to respond to me efficiently. I actually prefer the keyboard as the best system, responsive and quick.

I can't touch type worth anything though LOL
