Some Circle Strafing exersizes to practice
In the begin.lmp demo, right after the basic straferunning, we go right into basic circlestrafing. I first show pure circlestrafing with its spiraling-out problem, and then the more useful modified circle-strafing that uses straferunning. After you see it done, go on in and give it a try. Note this: you do have to pick up and reposition your mouse during circle-strafing. You will run out of mouse pad otherwise.
