New Keyboard Layout Everyone Should Look At
« on: November 11, 2012, 11:39:40 PM »
Hello there!

This is my first thread on the forums of this website, and I hope it is met with kind feedback...Anywho,
I've been playing around with some keyboard layouts lately because I just got this feeling that the aswd/Arrow keys combo was a little limiting.

This is how I normally play:

Left ring finger= A key
Left middle finger= S key
Left  index finger- D key

Right ring finger= right arrow key
Right middle finger = up arrow key
Right index finger = left arrow key

Notice: In the left hand that there is no designated finger for up arrow. Likewise, in the right hand, there is no designated  finger for down arrow. So there are times when the middle fingers are doing double duty to help it notes in the opposite hands...I hope this makes sense...

Anyways, So I play like this and I normally get A's on a majority of expert level songs in the OD packs ranging from 10- 12 in difficulty...

With this new method, I feel like I could potentially do better though.

Ok, so enough rambling, here it is...please bear with me on this!

Left hand:

Ring= a key
Middle= s key
Index= c
Thumb= left alt key

Right hand:

Ring= l key
Middle= k key
Index= m key
Thumb= Right Alt key

Now, I know this is really awkward, but in this setup, every finger has a backup. I just came up with it tonight and I am going to keep practicing t until I get it down pat.

some things I have already noticed that are helpful in this method are:

1.Scrolls are A LOT MORE MANAGEABLE
2. 16th and 32th note taps on one arrow are easier
3. There are more methods of hitting notes
 (there is more than one way of playing... Vague explanation)
4. Each hand has the potential to play independently or co-operative with the other hand
5. 32th notes seem more possible

Downfalls

1. feels awkward when you start playing like this
2. different than other methods such as qw/op or aw/o;
( the reason this is a downfall, is because instead of your fingers going diagonally up, they are curving inward down... which might make it a little more awkward for players mentioned above.

Hopes for this method

1. takes Stepmania to the next level in difficulty

Note: in the left hand, it might be easier to use s,d,c,l alt over a,s,c,l alt because it is a little closer,

I don't claim to be any good at Stepmania, nor do I claim to be really bad. I've played on and off for about two years. only recently have I really started playing seriously and love to play all the songs people have made on OD. If this helps you, great! If not, no need to flame... just an idea.

Any feedback or concerns are welcome

Give it a shot and thanks for reading!

unless i misread something, this isn't new. this is called a double setup and is widely thought of as a form of cheating.
if this is more fun for you then i encourage you to keep doing it, i'm just giving you a heads up that some people will consider you a cheater.

edit: i'll just add that every OD file (and pretty much every other file) is doable with a normal spread setup (like "askl" or something) so this isnt necessary.

Well, it doesn't surprise me if it isn't "new" like I thought.... but what gets me is the use of the thumb rather than the pinky.

Really? cheating? Man, that just sounds funny seeing as one might think that playing with our hands in all is cheating  :rolleyes:

oh yeah, I will learn to "double setup" and not think twice about it.

Thanks!

The main reason it's considered cheating is because of jacks, otherwise there's really no problem

Well, beyond my concern for learning this setup, my concern really lies in stepping something SOOo hard for this, it makes it a fair setup. So I think the difficulty should be ridiculous for this setup.

well, this setup is only helpful for jacks. normal spread is equal of better for everything else. so the only things you could step where this is really necessary would be files with retarded jacks, and those tend not to be very fun.
