    Hi,

    All my games I play with the arrow keys to control a character, when I try to assign those keys to right and left in the settings menu, they come back to the last default keys, for forward and backward the arrows work.
    Also when I assign those options to other keys like ctrl-r for left and 0-numpad those work, so I can assign almost all keys, except the arrow left&right
    I hope this will be in a patch as it is very anoying if you try to sidestep arround an enemy.
    The build version of the game is 0.0.12L

    For the rest I’m not suffering big problems atm, just little options for beards but that’s of lesser importance.

    For the rest a great game, I like the setting and I like the battles and most of all, I’m glad there is a campaign in it as I don’t like multiplayer a lot, but maybe if the honor of the players where like in the days of the old Rune I might join the battle. 🙂

    Thanks in advance,

    I’m very sorry to hear that you’re having this issue. Can you please screenshot your options menu?

    Hi Mitch,

    This is a very quick reply. 🙂
    Thanks for the good service, hopefully everything will turn out alright with Rune 2 as I followed the news a bit.

    What also puzzled me was, why are there two move forward and backward, seems a bit weird.
    But as I said before everything works except for the left/right arrow keys. 🙂

    Again thanks,

    L8rs

    Hi,

    Is there any update on this matter?
    I’ve juste learned recently that there was an update, but I saw that the option to assign arrow key’s wasn’t resolved.
    I’ve even reinstalled the game just to be sure, but still not possible to assign those key’s, which is a shame because I realy like to play this game, but for the time being I will let this pass as this isn’t playable for me.
    The build version of the game is 1.1.14177
    The image on Imgur is still accessible with next url https://imgur.com/ivJqj9m
    I’ve checked it a few minutes ago.

    Thanks in advance to look into this an hopefully it gets solved. 😉

    Kind regards,

    Ludo

      We are currently tracking an issue where keys will not bind properly if the target key is already bound. At the moment, our suggested workaround is to unbind the target key and bind your bind to the now unbound target key.

    Guys, I’m one step from claiming a refund. Your keybinding part is a total mess.

    Thanks for the reply Mitch, I’m confident that a solution is in the making. 🙂

    I just bought the game at the Epic Store, and I have the same problem. I am a left handed person, and I use the arrow keys for movement on every game, with left arrow for strafe left, and right arrow for strafe right. I hope this can be resolved, as this inability to reassign these keys makes playing the game very awkward. Thank you.

    Hi Mitch,
    Sorry to mention this, but what do you mean by the target key?
    And how can you unbind a key? I don’t see an option for it (some other games use delete or backspace to unbind)
    Thanks,
    Kind regards,
