I lay my left hand at the lower-left edge of my keyboard, index hovering over X, middle hovering over Z, my ring finger ready to press the Shift button for run.

My right hand is at the lower right edge of my keyboard, with fingers index, middle, and ring hovering over directional keys.

When I require bombs or ropes, I move my index and middle fingers up a row and press when needed, unless I need to move my index finger right to press C to switch to them.


Anyone play this way?

That's mostly how I play, but I never use the bomb and rope hotkeys.  I'm a flip-through-your-inventory kinda guy.

Wow, I wouldn't like to play like that.
 I play with a modified-FPS-stance, if you'd like to call it that.

Z = left ring finger
X = left middle finger
C = left index finger
SHIFT = pinky finger

LEFT = right index finger
UP = right middle finger
RIGHT = right ring finger
DOWN = also right middle finger

imagine my left thumb on the space bar, and move my right hand onto a mouse, and that's how I play a FPS on the computer.

I hold my thumbs over the control pad and 3 buttons, with index fingers on the first two shoulder keys.  Tongue

Oh, so that's why you can reach D and F.
And V.

I hate having to use those.
But I'm not accustomed to switching my playing style...

z - ring
x - middle
c - pointer (even though I very rarely use it)
Move ring and middle fingers up for bomb and rope shortcuts, respectively.
thumb on space for running (I don't like using shift)

Right Control.

You could reach it with your arrow key hand.
