Default Q4 Strafe Jumping

Yo.

Just got Q4 and I was wondering how to strafe jump. Unlike some of you, I haven't had the opportunity to play older quake games like 2, 3 arena and such.

Is there a particular type of movement that I need to do to strafe jump.

I like this game, but it just seems like my movement is totally limited and I want to be somewhat better at it.

I'm an avid ut2004 player and IMO the movement in q4 sucks in comparison.

Heh maybe I should just learn how to strafe jump. Any feedback will be great.

*shrug* just hold strafe right while pressing space?

You do use a keyboard and mouse configuration don't you?

EDIT: JuiceZ: How come you can have invisible mode and I can't?

When you use wasd... a and d are the strafe keys.

What I meant to say in my above post, is that I am so used to dodging in UT2004, that I occasionally double tap the strafe key in other games too..lol

Tell me about it! Thats why I'm hooked on UT2004 for fast paced "insane" DM/fraggin/whatever.. I feel so, fustrated, without it.

Actually in UT2004, I used esdf instead, so I had extra buttons for my pinky chose weapons. So I could move, dodge, etc while switching to the exact weapon without skilling a beat.. Its funny to hear people ask, "how do you switch weapons so fast?" ... I push a button.. lol

I may check out Q4 multi when I'm done single player.. But I'll have to relearn everything over again (various reasons why I skipped out on Q3A).. blah.

1. start running forward.
2. angle your view with your mouse to the right (for this example), just a little
3. hold forward and left strafe
4. while doing number 3 start bunny hopping. your not mashing the jump button, your timing the button press with when your feet touch the ground.

with a bit of practice, you should begin to see how you start accelerating. practice in an open area..

1) Start running
2) Look down (POV down)
3) Jump
4) .5 seconds after pressing jump, fire a rocket.

lol
