How To Look With The Arrow Keys? (HELP?)
Okay, So this is my first time on Quake Live. I recently started playing the Quake 3 Demo and I wanted to try this out. Dilemma: on Q3D I use the up and down arrows for moving forward and backwards, and the left and right arrows for looking left and right, with the space as shoot. I figured out on here how to change my shooting button, but have yet to find how to change the look controls... help? (P.S. i have a laptop, so i have no mouse, which is why i prefer this setup.)
You can press "Esc" and access the Game Settings. There's a nice little interface that allows you to change all of this stuff without even touching the console. (I suggest that because I assume you tried to find a way to do it with the console)
Actually, i went into the game settings, and even the advanced game settings and still can't find the 'look left' and 'look right' options like on Q3D.
Open the console while in game....:
and enter the following (hit enter after each line of course):

UnD3ADxBARBI3, games like this aren't designed to be played like that. This game is too fast to aim with the keyboard. Which is also why they are not available in the in-game menu I assume. Just plug in a mouse already. ;-)

Why would having a laptop prevent you from buying a mouse? Spare yourself a few years of wasted time hopelessly using the touchpad (which is absolutely ********) and get a mouse. The cheaper, the better.

how do you make it spin faster? whats the command?
If you mean with the keyboard, the cvar is cl_yawspeed (left and right) and cl_pitchspeed (up and down).

This was done to prevent the use of movement scripts.
Actually the range of sensitivity is much, much larger than this.
