Lord of the Rings online request
Did a quick search, and didnt find anything on LotRO. the setup i had in mind is kind of a translation of my Belkin n52te + Naga into a Hydra. if anyone else who plays thinks a grid type set-up would be better i'd be interested in exploring that as well. im just not sure i can hit three different skills with rapid enough succession to play, say, a Lore Master or a Burglar. without further delay, heres what iw as thinking:
Command | Action
3| keypress "1"
1| keypress "2"
start| keypress "3"
2| keypress "4"
4| keypress "5"
Trigger| keypress "Right Ctrl" (note: right or left is actually irrelevent, but if you have to choose one)
Bumper| keypress "Right Alt" (note: right or left is actually irrelevent, but if you have to choose one)
Aim Left| keypress "Q"
Aim right| keypress "E"
Aim Up| keypress "W"
Aim Down| keypress "S"
Command | Action
3| keypress "6"
1| keypress "7"
start| keypress "8"
2| keypress "9"
4| keypress "0"
Joystick Down| Mouse Scroll Wheel Depressed (when this is pressed it should disable the Right Controller Aim functions)
Joystick Left| keypress "Delete"
Joystick Right| keypress "Tab"
Trigger| Mouse Right Click
Bumper| Mouse Left Click/ Ratchet ? (does it do the same thing in 3rd person view?)
Aim Left| keypress "A"
Aim right| keypress "D"
Aim Up| keypress "Page Up"
Aim Down| keypress "Page Down"
Left + Right Controllers Rotated 90 Inboard (joysticks are now facing eachother)| Keypress "Shift+9"
Left + Right Controllers Rotated 90 Outboard | Keypress "Num Lock"
im sure as i go through the game ill figure out what i can use teh left joystick for, but as it stands i think i've pretty much covered all the functionality i need from the controllers. anything thats not right, feel free to ask.
I'd like to second a request for a LOTRO config.
Either way I think with MMOs you'd have to use a grid system. It's not nearly as painful as you'd think, but it will take a bit of getting used to. Right now I use grids for Starcraft 2, Dawn of War 2, Company of Heroes, Dota 2 Beta, and a few others and they are just awesome. I've never played with the grids in an MMO though, so I'd have to play test an MMO with grids and see what I thought first. If this still isn't tackled after a time then I might give it a shot, but after I see an MMO grid system in action. I just might have to open up a WoW account to do that... I don't really want to lol.
I would like to third a request for a LOTRO config

You know, USEFUL stuff that would make your life a little easier while using the controller.
Personally, I'd be more interested in making a One-handed MCE for an mmo. I mean, use the left hand for your keyboard actions and all the basics, and you could use binding groups on the hydra to give you access to lots of useful stuff that you normally wouldn't have access with a mouse. Combine that with motion controls and it could be quite handy indeed.
