I originally played with arrowkeys+mouse for jump and powerup, but I got used to WASD in MBO. Definitely in favour of mouse controls here.

Well I think we settled the discussion before it was even started Seizure and I both agreed there will be keyboard support

Yes, the video shows I somewhat moved it while I was charging. You can also exit the cannon at any point (except for the Instant cannon, of course).

Tech, that was a completely pointless and unnecessary post.

Sorry MF. Deleted. I just wanted to express how awesome PQ really is .

I love you, but your attitude is like that of a shrew. Your options? Take a pill or be my kill. Might I suggest that you wear a vest. Perish in class or be banished to the land of bluegrass, where dreams don't exist as you'll be eternally pissed.

There are going to be so many levels with cannons after this comes out. I'm expecting the custom level rates to be 5x higher than what they are this year. It's kind of a slow year for custom level building, because most builders are all working on PQ or other mods.

Anyway, what are those red and white exclamation points in the trailer? Help triggers?

EDIT: I use the keyboard and mouse. If I lost either of those things, I could not play MB.

You couldn't really do anything without them. Already epic, but it could even epicer if you could 'drive' the cannon around the level, but I don't think that that's possible.

Is it just me or is the future of Marble Blast starting early?

Yep, they're visual indicators that a help trigger is within that area.

(For anyone who is wondering) There are a few ways to deal with the fact that the top speed of keyboard is slower than the top speed of camera.

1. Suck it up and lose the 0.0x-0.x (even x.y depending on level and turning speed) of time the keyboard costs you. (This will always happen to an extent.)
2. If you're turning the camera left, instead of going W-A the entire way, go W-A then just A or A-S, so the marble will move close to what a faster camera turn would move it.
3. Preturning: Turn the camera in the direction you are planning to turn it before the turn (and modify the WASD keys you press), so you don't have to turn the camera as much during the turn. One place I use it is on Pitfalls.
4. Use the mouse just for those turns, if possible. (The mouse is also useful for very small turns, like on Tightrope, since the keyboard has a minimum turn amount that happens when you briefly press a key.)
5. Don't turn more than 180ยบ if you can.

A time can be beaten, but a path can't be rediscovered. The best path stays forever.
