Minecraft Configuration

Posted by on Jun 24, 2011 in Game Macros and Configurations |

Today, Greg from the Innovation Squad brings us some configurations for Minecraft. This is a great game for the Fragpedal: 1) Using your feet for repetitive commands helps keep your hands from cramping. 2) Minecraft embraces the clever and creative spirit  that Fragpedal users are known for. I mean, take Greg for example…


The Handyman

Minecraft Footpedal Gaming Controls
The Handyman: gets stuff done. Step on button 1 to crouch without tiring your fingers


Button 1 – Left Shift (crouch/sneak)
Button 2 – Mouse wheel click (Switch to the block currently looked at, as long as it is in the quickbar)
Button 3 – Left Click (Destroy blocks/Attack/Toggle Switches and Doors)
Button 4 – Right Click (Place Blocks/Use objects)

The first profile, the Handyman, gives easy access to the crouch function, which I find myself holding down a lot. I find it helpful to assign that job to an extra appendage. The block selection also comes in handy for tedious building projects. I also chose to use simple mouse clicks for the right pedal to save on finger stress, since placing blocks can be a big culprit of requiring excessive clicking.

The Industrial Miner

Minecraft Industrial Controls
To avoid fatigue, add and select block types and move with the footpedal


Button 1 – 8 (select quickbar item #8)
Button 2 – W (Move Forward)
Button 3 – Left Click (Destroy blocks/Attack/Toggle Switches and Doors)
Button 4 – 9 (select quickbar item #9)

I designed this profile, the Industrial Miner, around large mining projects. While branch mining, a majority of the work is just walking and breaking blocks. Using one button as a “gas pedal” and another to constantly mine, you can sit back and just steer with your mouse. The quickbar selection buttons were added to make switching between a shovel and pick even simpler, thus allowing an even more mindless mining trek 😉

The Laptop Miner

Minecraft Laptop Controls
And Greg said: Let there be scroll. And there was scroll. (2 Cor. 4: 6)


Button 1 – Mouse wheel Up (Select previous quickbar item)
Button 2 – Mouse wheel Down (Select next quickbar item)
Button 3 – Left Shift (Crouch/Sneak)
Button 4 – Spacebar (Jump)


This last profile is designed for miners playing without a scroll mouse, particularly laptop users. This way, they can conveniently use the Fragpedal to cycle through the quickbar items. I also thought it would be fun to bring in the Crouch button, as well as throwing in the jump for good measure.

    Great job, greg! What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever made in Minecraft?

    The most unique thing I’ve made is a ladder that’s surrounded by lava so you’re surrounded when you go down. I think it looks pretty sweet 🙂
