Ok, I get it...this client is in beta. It's too bad, really, since the game, otherwise runs beautifully. I've tried getting around the keymapping bug...so, when the game loads up, it looks like it's resetting the keymap file to a default...maybe. I modified the mappings the way I wanted, then made the file read-only. Great! The game doesn't reset it to defaults anymore! But it also ignores it, and your mappings are back to default. I tried taking a copy of the modified file and inserting it while the game is running...no joy.
Not sure what's going on with this, but it's the only real problem that's driving me nuts. Is this on the table to be fixed? Is it known? Should I bother monkeying around with it, since it's going to be addressed 'soon'? Is there a workaround...is the game looking elsewhere at a keymapping default? Maybe the default is hard coded in the game and there's nothing we can do aboot it. Would love a heads-up on this.
UPDATE: Looks like making your keymap file read-only ruins your ability to use in game chat. I could not, for the life of me, get it to work. Then, I made myself able to read/write the keymap file again, and bam...it worked. The two seem completely unrelated...yet...there you have it. What in tarnation is going on here???
