    Why Are Some Keys Hard-coded into Mods?

    Post by Per-Scan on Sun Oct 03, 2010 4:46 pm

    Why is it that some keys are hard-coded and not bindable in either the menu or some kind of config file? By hard-coded keys I refer to things like in Project X (A masterpiece in my opinion!) the M and R keys are mapped to the Map and Reload functions respectively. I would like to remap them but there is no way to do this. This seems to be the way of all mods I've tried with extra keys. Is this just a limitation of the original source code or something? Smile

    Now that I think of it, I think you're right. Anybody else notice this? I remember Project X and Spear of Dreams having extra buttons, non of which are mappable.

    I think Eisenfaust Origins should be on that list too. The secret weapon you get has an alternate firing button which is X instead of your desired primary firing button.

    I never got the weapon so I forgot about it. Sad I did get a few levels unlocked though.
