View Full Version : Remapping controls (again)
Still the ages old problem of being unable to remap movement and a bunch of other stuff to arrow keys and whatnot. AND even after remapping in the .ini file I still get the problem of erratic behaviour ingame (ex. press right arrow button - Garrett leans left, press it again - he moves right... etc.).
Oh, by the way, I DON'T have a joystick or gamepad. And please, don't tell me to get used to the wasd control scheme, I didn't like it 6 years ago and I'm not about to start liking it now. So - no posts on the lines of "learn how to use wasd" - either you have a suggestion or you do not reply to this thread. Thank you.

Um...I was able to remap movement to the arrow keys just fine. I don't like using wasd either and I never got used to it, so I stuck with arrows.
Dunno what to say...no joystick, no gamepad...try a different keyboard if you have one, perhaps...it should be able to remap to arrow keys fine...
Maybe if you messed with the .ini files you might have screwed something up in that regard. I'd recommend reinstalling the game and not touching the .inis until you set your controls the way you like.
Well. I'll surely try that... But this is the FIRST time this has ever happened to me... Too bloody weird... (or maybe just sloppy programming - DX:IW <wink, wink, nudge, nudge>... Oh, well...
Oh, and I only started messing with the .inis after several friutless efforts of altering the control scheme from within the game.

Inputs can have multiple keys to activate them its possbile from editing the ini file that some things are cross bound, goto the main menu and delete all seconday binds.
Wow, actually this is the first sensible suggestion... (no offence Stalin). Will try that too...

you wouldnt by chance be using a Logitech Itouch keyboard, would ya?
I had the same problem, and discovered when I shut down the executable for the keyboard (Itouch.exe),........and ran it like an ordinary keyboard..my problems went away, and I dont have cramps in between my fingers from trying to use the 2999 different keys that Ion decided on to play a decent game of DS.
My fingers felt like Garrett was using them as a bow upgrade
Nope. Got one of them Microsoft Internet Keyboard jobs. Just the basic stuff. And no drivers for the keyboard. In device manager it is identified like a standard 104/105 (don't remember the actual number) key keyboard.

You've probably thought of this, but I don't suppose you might have forgotten to reassign the mechanical eye zoom commands? The default for that is arrow up and arrow down, so I'm guessing that if you don't reassign them, there will be problems.

I found I had issues as well. I closed the game, unplugged my game pad, then I could assign as needed on the keyboard. So maybe by just disconnecting your joystick/gamepad, your issue will be resolved.
Read the post FIRST. I said that I DO NOT HAVE a joystick/gamepad...

I've mapped the keys to the numeric keypad, I'm left handed and use the same basic set up for all games, with no problems.
I do find TDS a little un responsive at times but I'm not sure if this is the sticking on small obsticles problem, wall hugging and getting stuck against unlit tourches for instance!
I also get a problem whereby I'll click the action button on my mouse and the dagger will be selected, I normally have my hands empty unless I'm doing something, and if I was accidentally moving the mouse wheel I'd expect to get the blackjack, not the dagger!
I seem to remember something in the read me about keyboards not having the correct hardware standard or something, it said to try pressing two keys at once and then a third and see if the third key appears (in notepad) I tried this on mine and it didn't work, I have a MS natural keyboard.
