Classic DOOM: Hand positions
Using the default key settings, what would you say is the ideal hand position for playing Doom? Right hand on arrow keys, pinky on left Ctrl, right hand used for strafing? Or what?

I haven't used those in ages, but... I used to use the my left hand on the left ctrl and alt keys, as well as the space bar... and then my right hand would be exclusively for the arrow keys.

But what about strafing with the < and > keys?

Never did that.

What about this? ; )



UP-->Q
DOWN-->A
LEFT-->9
RIGHT-->0
RUN--->Z
FIRE-->M
OPEN/USE-->LEFT ALT or SPACEBAR
STRAFE LEFT-->N
STAFE RIGHT-->(the key to the right to 'M' key)

The last two keys should be pressed with your right thumb finger (something strange as you start to, but quite efficent after...) ; )

The RUN key (Z) should be pressed with your left index finger, and keeping pressed meanwhile you want to run. Maybe you can altern with your middle finger run forward (Q) or backward (A), but surely you´ll use it just for run formard.
