xbox & keyboard/mouse play

Post your gametags.

The Xbox was a level playing field till these were added. I'll make sure I'm not in a game with a keyboard/mouse player.

Consoles use a pad and a PC uses a mouse keyboard and thats the way it should stay.

I read somewhere that you can buy a convertor to allow you to play games on the xbox using the keyboard and mouse combination as in most PC games.

i was wondering if anyone else has heard of this or tried it... and if anyone has any idea where you can buy them!!!

I like shooting games and do like the X-Box but after years of playing PC games i cant get used to using the controllers for the Xbox and always end up shooting the ground or the ceiling!!!!

Hi Lisa,

Do you mean something like this?

I've seen some montages of several of the worlds top ranked Halo 2 players and I reckon some of them must be using a mouse / keyboard combo to be able to accurately shoot like that, particularly when using the sniper.

I have a smart frag. It is easy to set up, just remember to edit the blank profile then assign it, rather than trying to edit a predefined setting.

Whilst it is a little easier to play Halo2, I still suck at it. I'm using a microsoft intellimouse which has 5 buttons + wheel scroll down/up which are all definable.

One thing I do miss from Quake2 etc is the side step move which isn't in Halo 2.

I would definatley play around with the Halo 2 settings for the speed of the look/turn movement as you'll still need to adjust this for the mouse control. If I had done this in the first place, I might have persevered with the controller a bit longer.

Rather than ebay try liksang for a smart frag they import from HK and are pretty cheap even if you get stung with custom fees.
