Special? What do you mean?
If you're talking about programs like AppLocale *or whatever, I don't use it*, I don't think so. I can't quite remember if I needed to mess with the non-unicode settings when I installed it, but so long as you have the game and the requirements to run it, I don't think so.
Oh, if you don't have a joypad, a keyboard would help :wink:

Ah, I can assume you're referring to this so....

Very simple explanation of the buttons. For the advanced options I just set them all to 32bit, but I don't really see much of a difference.
Using a keyboard, you can't change the controls, so...
Arrow keys to move, N M , . - weak, medium, strong and parry. There are more but they're not really nessesary.
Hope that helps.

That's why you use a gamepad :P I've heard that a lot of the really good players use keyboards though, so it shouldn't be impossible. It probably just takes some time getting used to.

They probably use the numpad though. Mine is a laptop so no numpad. Having to press 2 arrow keys at once to achieve the same effect as pressing, say, numpad 1 is, and doing multiple of those in a combo.....your fingers get all tangled up.

I might buy a gamepad though. Any ideas on a good cheap one that will let me combo, etc with ease?

Either a Logitech Rumblepad 2 or a Dual Action. I recommend the rumblepad though, as the joystick thingies in the Dual Action tend to break rather quickly. Mine lasted well over a year, but I've read a lot of comments on how for most people they broke within a week or 2.

You can use the numberpad?
I didn't know that...
I use the keyboard and well.... While not as good as some of the people here, I like to think I'm fairly good >.>

It's not impossible at all. Try doing it slower, at about two keys per second. I play MBR on my laptop all the time and have no problems at all.
