The rotate view / left right keys are on the num-pad, but are the reverse of what I am used to. Can they be remapped in an ini or cfg file somewhere?

Erik Rutins -> RE: Hotkeys List (5/18/2011 6:56:31 PM)

There's no in-game remapping at present, but there are some third party programs that let you remap any key for any game. I think Autokey is a popular one.

It's autohotkey and a good program.

junk2drive -> RE: Hotkeys List (5/21/2011 5:27:13 PM)

Markshot's endorsement of autohotkey

Maybe he will do a tutorial for PCO uses.

junk2drive -> RE: Hotkeys List (5/25/2011 1:59:20 AM)

Rick can you sticky this?

Mad Russian -> RE: Hotkeys List (5/25/2011 4:17:49 AM)

Holding down the control key when giving orders for waypoints isn't on the Hot Key list.

Good Hunting.


junk2drive -> RE: Hotkeys List (5/25/2011 4:59:30 AM)

It is on the list above.
