x = jump
y = not jump

Fun fact: z = shoot. Not y.

I really do prefer controllers. Holding them in your hand, jumping and shooting is always the same movement. You don't just press the shooting button, you place your thumb in the shooting position.
Keyboards don't work like that. You have a shooting finger and jumping finger, not feeling different. Plus, you can have your hand wrong since there's no grip.

How did I get y and z mixed up?

Possibly the worst death yet.
Dosent the shadow blade stop you from moving while in use?

Switch the shoot button to space bar and the jump button to UP.

Their playing it on VIRTUALNES!!!!
I can buster Quick Man on difficult.

Reply Djoing, August 26th, 2011, 1:27 pm

Yes. But the jump button doesn't shoot shadow blades, unfortunately.

But its suppost to stop you dead in your tracks!

Reply Djoing, August 26th, 2011, 1:43 pm

But I did not shoot.

I jumped.

Wrong button.

Make you sure don't have as many fail deaths in MM4, K?

For some reason I find New Shotman's expression in panel 4 to be hilarious.

Great job, keep it up!

@Advertisement: Hopefully they'll be used to it by then.

then again I would have thought they'd be used to it by now. XD

@SWITCH CONTROLS: That's... actually a fairly decent idea, if they can change their controls.

@SWITCH CONTROLS & Shadow_Da_Hedgie: Wellll, setting jump to 'up' would probably mess up the ladder climbing.

And we both think space bar is annoying for the common rapid tapping that comes with games, due to its sound and heavy feel and stuff.

Reply RedJac, August 26th, 2011, 2:58 pm

Again, death by pressing the wrong button.

Reply Striffen Cloud, August 26th, 2011, 3:10 pm

With the amount of times you guys have done that, I'm starting to think VirtualNES should switch their control mechanisms completely. Use F and an adjacent key, or something.

Reply Delta&Tilly, August 26th, 2011, 3:40 pm

Switch shoot to left shift and jump to right shift.

Reply The_mad_one, August 26th, 2011, 4:13 pm

@ Striffen Cloud: You can change the controls, but it's not the default buttons that bother us, just the use of a keyboard without grip.

@ Delta&Tilly: Then you'd have to let go of the arrow keys (thus stand still) for every jump. :s
Either that or awkwardly stretch your thumb.

Here's an request... (Kind of) List the number of times you died by messing up the buttons. Also, is it just me, or are we having Deja Vu here?

Reply Lightning S. 464, August 26th, 2011, 5:50 pm

I feel your pain. Comparing the keyboard to the real NES controls I have, it's difficult and confusing (without need to say).

Reply Maowe, August 26th, 2011, 7:57 pm

well i like controllers too but since the site can't use controllers... tough luck.

Reply Shadow_Da_Hedgie, August 26th, 2011, 9:07 pm

@The_mad_one: Good point. I've been gaming with a computer for years, having played through the first 7 Mega Man games, the first 3 Mega Man X games and Chrono Trigger with emulators... So I guess I'm used to it. I used to make similar mistakes though.

Me: Here's a pit...
Mega: *shoots and falls down the pit*

Also... What kind of keyboard are you using to hit y instead of x? O.o

Reply epicness, August 27th, 2011, 1:49 am

Just have this!

x= Shoot

everyything else=same

Reply CHAIN CONTROLS (Guest), August 27th, 2011, 7:10 am

Well I usually play with the WASD keys to move, O to jump, and P to shoot. Do not ask me why.

Wow this is becoming contagious.
