A Question About Movement On Firestorm

Recommended Posts

My apologies in advance if I'm not asking this question in the proper folder and for possibly asking a very simple question that I feel that I probably should know by now, but I have a question regarding how to move your avatar using Firestorm. I feel somewhat embarrassed for asking this question but I looked around online for a straight answer and couldn't find one.

So as you know, there are various different ways on how to move when using the Second Life Viewer; the arrow keys, the WASD keys and the number pad. However, on Firestorm, I am only able to move via the arrow keys.

This wasn't a problem for me until just a bit over a week ago when I started playing a Gor game that requires me chasing and being chased by other people. Jumping became a chore for me as I would have to let go of the mouse and jump using the Page Up button. Using the Second Life Viewer, I am able to jump using the "E" key just fine, but when I try using the WASD keys on Firestorm, I end up writing on local chat (waswdasdawdasdwawdaw is written when I try moving with WASD). This has made it an absolute challenge for me to catch opponents or to run away from them whenever I play the game.

Using Viewer 2 is out of the question due to how it would only give me more handicaps because of the lack of features it has compared to Firestorm (for example, I can't quickjump on Viewer 2)

My question is, how do I get my avatar to move using the WASD keys on Firestorm? I really would appreciate the help.

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, but thanks for the tip. I'm able to move around and fight much more easily now.

Preferences -> Move & View -> Movement -> Pressing letter keys affects movement (ie WASD) instead of starting local chat
