AHK works great to get around my limitations.  The problem is when I remap sprint, crouch, or jump it doesn't reassign the key it adds that key to the other binds so now  different keys all jump.  In addition, when I restart the game it displays the default keys as the binds even though they've mapped onto multiple keys.

Are you using a controller?

If you're talking about just normal keyboard key remapping, you have to use an external utility at this time, like AutoHotKey. You can substitute any key on the keyboard for another.

I hate WASD and the left side of the keyboard, so I remap everything to the right size/keypad. Basically, I use the Arrows and everything around them. AutoHotKey makes this change easy.

Here's my config file. It's simple to change.


The left side is What You Want It To Be and the right side is What It Is By Default:



They only thing you have to remember is, start AutoHotKey before starting the game and then to close AutoHotKey after exiting the game, otherwise you keyboard is all screwed up for normal use due to the remappings.


Here's the default controls, as a reminder and to see what I've remapped to what in my config file shown above:

Well, AHK works fine, been using it for over a decade because my fingers don't work.  The game remembers all the key binds at once, so if I map Sprint to F5 and Jump to F6 and then switch them around. . .when I hit F5 I will Jump and Sprint.  In addition, the display of the current key maps reverts to the default.  It makes it unplayable.
