However, as I mentioned in a comment on the original Trackmania post, playing a racing game from the keyboard really sucks:
Since the arrow keys are binary (they’re depressed or not), you tend to steer in quick jerks, and over-correct a lot.
I had this same problem playing Need for Speed a few years ago.
I’d like to upgrade my racing game experience, but I don’t want a big steering wheel set-up. Three other people use this computer daily, there’s not much room on the desk, and the tower is way underneath, so attaching and detaching a steering wheel would be too much trouble.
So, how do you play a racing game from the keyboard without all the problems associated with binary controls? I need a shade of gray, and I don’t have one with the keyboard. Anyone have any good ideas?
