As you may know 1.02 introduced key remapping.

I would like to know if you guys took advantage of this new feature and did major (or minor) remapping of the game keys.

I can start:
- remapped arrow down to "stop" ship
- added Z and X for "fire" and "launcher" respectively
- removed ENTER as launcher fire

Another question, are you using the Numpad ?

What do you think ?

I also changed down to stop and removed ENTER.

I play on a laptop, so no, I'm not using numpad.

One thing that I did find, having down as STOP, was that it was tricky to 'edge-up' to something in the wolfen. It will probably just take some getting used to, or I will have down and period as brakes so I can use separate hands for fine adjustments.

Also a laptop.

I moved shoot to shift, missiles to z, stop to page up* (just over the left arrow), target next enemy to the space bar. (and T to "TargetPreviousEnemy", I don't think it works that way though)

I also use autohotkey to make page down (over the right arrow) act like enter and capslock change weapons. (it used to do everthing from the above paragraph as well, except making t previous target)


*my up arrow key is dead, so I need to use down (which I would prefer be stop) for thrust or flying would be very awkward.
