I've just got DMC4 and I don't have a game pad. I wonder if there's an option somewhere to see keyboard configuration and maybe change it? I don't see anything like that in the game and I don't want to spend 2 hours to figure out the config that the game makers/whoever else made.
I beat Dante Must Die difficulty and 100 level of Bloody Palace using KEYBOARDS. 2M Red orbs 500K Proud orbs. One thing you can't do with keyboards is WALKING, because you will always RUNNING (without lock). The rest is possible if you know how. And I seriously can't play it using sticks LOL :D
I don't get tired using my keyboard layout to beat DMD and BP. In fact I enjoy it. Try it: [NERO]
Movement:= W,S,A,D Lock = SPACE Devil Trigger = F Exceed = E Camera Reset = Alt (left) Camera Left = Z Camera Right = C Shoot = J Melee = I Jump = K Buster = L Taunt = U Change target = O
[DANTE] Change Sword = E Change Gun = Q Special = L --The rest is the same with nero--
Tips: don''t lock all the time especially when there are many enemies around you and you need crowd control. Locking concentrates your attack to one target and lessens your crowd control. Use it only when you need specific moves that involves direction, such as Gilgamesh Real Impact (special + backward), Lucifer Pin Up (special + forward), etc.
Considering, my setup is similar (without the camera controls nearby, however), except exceed is F and devil trig is left shift. Your taunt key is in a much more useful position as well, so I'll probably use that from now on.
One tiny thing....can you style switch dante like in those pro vids (noticed you didn't put style keys anywhere)?
