Remapping[edit]

Modify binds_pc.cfg[1]
  1. Backup <path-to-game>\binds_pc.cfg and open it with preferred text editor.
  2. Find the following section:
### THESE BINDINGS ARE COPIED DIRECTLY FROM THE XBOX 360 BINDS

### CONTROLLER 1

3. First part is for the controller and second one is for the keyboard and mouse. Sections are formatted as following:

setbind/addbind <player number> <game command> <device controller/mouse/keyboard> <device number> <key/button/axis> <axis values>

So as an example, secondary added binding (addbind) for punching set to keyboard key S:

addbind 0 COMMAND_PUNCH           KEYBOARD   0 KEY_S           -1.0 1.0 1.0

4. Make desired changes and save the file.

### CONTROLLER 2 is for second player (player 1, device 1) which is never used.
Example commands and keys are listed at the top of the file.
In-game button prompts will respect the changes made in the file.

DirectInput[edit]

Enable DirectInput
  1. Add usedirectinputapi = 1 into default_pc.cfg.
Configuration doesn't respect button placement or number, causing buttons to be misassigned.
Game will continue to use Xbox button prompts.

Controller remapping[edit]

Remap controls
  1. Use x360ce 64-bit variant for XInput wrapping.
  2. Copy xinput1_3.dll and rename it to xinput9_1_0.dll.

Notes

  1. When running this game without elevated privileges (Run as administrator option), write operations against a location below %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMDATA%, or %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore on Windows Vista and later (more details).
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/235210/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (235210) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
