Swapping keysets takes about 10 seconds of detection time. The physical installation per say is very easy: snap open the right side lock, fold the keyset, unfold the new one, insert on the left and snap the lock back in place. A connector circuit does the interface between the device and Windows.
With the Battlefield 2 keyset ready to go we run the game as we perused its features. The enlarged WASD style buttons form a red cluster to the left so that they are easily identified and used. Other twenty keys were set apart to form shortcuts to several of the game commands like jumping, reloading weapons or calling for backup. The buttons demand some time getting used to especially if you are a veteran FPS player – as we are – but for those who are new to this kind of game the shortcuts are a great help. It takes no time memorizing where’s the key for parachute (is it P? is it 9? is it F9?) since there’s a huge parachute button right where you need it. Sweet.
