Controller Setting Type A

I'm trying to practice this configuration because the ability to change viewpoints and make quick turns will help me a lot. However looking at gameplays online, it looks like people can change viewpoints WHILE running at the same time. And I can't do the same thing without a finger over another or something... it's just awkward.

So you're using the L joystick (left thumb) and X (right thumb) to run. If you wanna change viewpoins, you gotta use R, which takes the right thumb as well, so you're gonna have to break the run, walk, then change viewpoints! Is there an easier way of doing this without such awkward finger positioning?

Hold down L3 to run(the left stick pushed in), then look around with the right stick.
l are lower cased L's

It seems a bit awkward at first, but it becomes natural pretty quickly.

Soulja, I've tried that but I think controller type A does not recognize L3 held down, so it remains walking

It may seem awkward at first, but I use my index finger to rotate the camera. I've been used to that since RE4. Personally, I'd love to have strafing, but I have to see what's around me especially in Mercs.

You do realize your INDEX fingers are the ones controlling L1/L2 and R1/R2. That is just simply physically not possible.

Are you sure about???? I rotate my camera all the time when I run so why would I even need to press L1/L2 and R1/R2. Left thumb is on the left analog stick, right thumb is on X and my right index finger is rotating the camera. Pick up the controller and try it.

so basically, while your right thumb is holding down X to run, your index finger crosses it on the top and controls the camera?

i just tried it, quite award and carpal-tunnel-syndrome inducing, but yeah it works ;o)

It was awkward at first and even looks awkward, but I've gotten so used to it that it just feels natural now.
