Load Half-Life, select
Configuration, then Controls, then select the
Advanced controls button.
Crosshair. Tick this setting to
enable the use of a crosshair
in-game. Obviously this will make aiming a lot easier.
mouse. Tick this to invert the y-axis of the
mouse. This means pulling back (towards you) on the mouse will result in
looking up & vice versa.
Mouse look. Tick this
setting to always use the mouse for aiming/changing view. I’d highly recommend
this for best control of your view. Although Untick it should you intend
to use a joystick/keyboard instead for aiming.
filter. Tick this setting to
enable mouse filtering. This will average out mouse movements resulting
in much smoother scrolling. Ubnticking this will
disable mouse filtering.
Joystick. Tick this
setting if you intend to use a Joystick to play the game, however
mouse & keyboard is the best way to play Counter-Strike. It will improve
performance slightly if Unticked as well. Useful if you're on a low spec
Joystick look. When
Ticked the Joystick will be used for aiming/changing view,
rather than movement & vice versa. If you have Joystick
Unticked then you can ignore this setting.
Ticked this can enhance your aim on servers which support
this feature. When Unticked aim enhancement will be
disabled, even on servers that support
sensitivity. Using this slider you can adjust the responsiveness of your
mouse. Moving this to the Right can improve mouse responsiveness,
although may make accurate movements awkward due to the extra responsiveness
& vice versa.
You can further tweak Input device
settings in your Config file. Add/Edit the following lines
as you see fit;
m_filter "x". Set
x to 1 enables mouse filtering. This averages out
mouse movements resulting in much smoother scrolling. A setting of 0
disables mouse filtering. I’d high recommend enabling
joystick "x". Should you be
wanting to use a joystick to play Counter-Strike set this to 1. If you
don't, set it to 0. Mouse & keyboard is by far the better way to play
however. Performance can improve slightly when Joystick support is
sensitivity "x". Valid values for x are
0 – 10. Setting this to Higher values can improve mouse
responsiveness, although may make accurate movements awkward due to the extra
responsiveness & vice versa. I’d recommend leaving this set to the default
value unless you find your mouse to be very slow to react to
you are using a mouse (Which most of you will be) you can find out how to
further tweak that device in our Mouse Tweak guide.
