  • Can I alter just the dual-wielding controls? Ian Pugsley

    In a comment on Is it possible to use a shield in one hand and magic in the other?, switching the controls for left arm to left mouse button (and right arm to right mouse button) was mentioned. I think this makes the dual-wielding system much more intuitive - however, I desperately don't want to have to left click to block and right click to attack (or right click to shoot my bow, left click to melee with it, etc).

    I didn't see anything in the settings to alter mappings for dual wielding only - is there any way to do this?

  • You could put your shield in your right hand and the sword in the left.

  • If you play with a controller it is mapped correctly (right trigger controls right hand). There is no way to just map dual wielding on the PC

In Skyrim for the PC, I find the fact that my left hand is bound to the right mouse button, and my right hand is bound to the left mouse button (by default) a little strange as a first time Elder Scrolls player. I've remapped the keys, but now I wonder, will swinging my Mace in my left hand all the sudden make me suffer any kind of damage penalty? Is my character ambidextrous such that I do the same damage with weapons and spells regardless of which hand I use?

  • running DOSBox in Windows 7 32-bit. Is there any way to play this game with the keyboard only? Or configure DOSBox in such a way that I can specify to use some keys as right click and left click instead... work just like pressing the left mouse button. And to swipe mouse from left to right and vice versa like doing it from a mouse. Just like Bluestack has done with itself. ...I downloaded this game, "Elders Scrolls: Arena Deluxe Edition" and started it on DOSBox to emulate and play it. Although it's working fine, the problem is that I can attack with the mouse but wanted

  • I just started playing Postal Plus, a 2001 enhanced edition of a 1997 original, on PC Windows XP. It's a very interesting game, but I have certain problem while playing using keyboard controls. Namely, turning left does not seem to work properly, as it only make Postal Dude turn slightly per each key press and does not turn at all while the button is hold. When pressing button for turning right, everything works fine (holding the key turns the Dude all the time). This problem does not seem to appear when using mouse controls (moving mouse left or right). Is this how the game is meant

My question is : should i use 2x fists instead of a Daibo ? What are the advantages of one over another. Also, Lets say my Daibo does 40.0 damage, will i do more damage with 2x Fists doing 40.0 damage each ? Are the skill damage based on Weapons SUM or just the weapon in the main hand ? There are some skills for example, that does 110% weapon damage, but what happens if i am dual wielding ? How does

  • Possible Duplicate: How is listed DPS calculated when dual-wielding weapons? I've read somewhere in-game ( i don't remember where exactly though) that when dual-wielding, attack speed differs when you're using incompatible items or something? So does it matter if I equip a one-handed spear and a fist vs 2 spears and 2 fists? Also, do they need to have the same attack speed?

  • Recently I downloaded the Original Planetside. I want to use my logitech dual action gamepad with it, however, I can't seem to configure the buttons on the controller in game. Particularly, I went... the 2 axis's on the left thumbstick and the horizontal axis on the right. I wasn't able to configure any of the controller buttons. They do appear to be detected by the game, as they light up in the settings menu when I press the corresponding button. However, I cannot map them to any game function. This is an old game, others are bound to have done this successfully. Also, this is one

  • Possible Duplicate: When dual wielding weapons, how is damage calculated for skills that do X% weapon damage? I tried out demon hunter after getting a nice 1-hand weapon for the class... Arrow, about half my shots was a nice high damage and the other half was low, like if the ability used the different weapons to calculate damage so I dropped my starting weapon for a shield.

  • Depending on race and equipped weapons, characters can use various wield styles: One-Handed, Power Grip, Dual Wield, Two-Handed, Quad Wield and Dual Power Grip. How do the different styles compare and how should one choose which to use? Does the One Handed style benefit from an empty second hand, a shield or a second weapon?

  • I am lefthanded, and am trying to play Bit.Trip Fate on the 3DS, which requires me to use the analog stick with the left hand, and the stylus with my right. This is incredibly awkward, and borders on impossible - I have very little control with the stylus in my right hand. Is there any way I can switch the controls so that it is easier (preferably a way that includes the ability to use the stylus in my left hand)? Or am I doomed to never be good at Bit.Trip Fate on the 3DS?
