Remapping[edit]

Edit config file[4]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open PLAYER_CONTROLS.TXT.
  3. Find the action you want to remap and change the value behind <STRING>INPUT0: (gamepad) or <STRING>INPUT1: (keyboard/mouse) accordingly.
  4. Change the number of <INTEGER>VERSION: to 200 to prevent the game from overwriting it. Keeping a backup file is recommended however.
