Dual key binding

Post by SmEgHeAd89 »

Simple idea:

Two input boxes for each control binding.
I'm just a part of that group of people that likes to keep the default key when using mouse buttons for commands (until I find a better use for the original key).

Example:
Q is Clear cursor, I’d like to be able to make it Q and mouse x

Also, I tried editing the config.ini e.g. "clean-cursor=Q, mouse-button-4" (with and without the comma) but it kept resetting it.

Love the game,
Smeghead.

Multiple keybinds for the same function is not uncommon in games, it is actually often used in games with Joystick support, the aim so that you can use a keyboard key, or the joystick without having to change the keybinds every time.

Being able to have some sort of List in the config would be a good idea, however, as someone who knows a fair bit about INI formatting... it's not really designed for it. I remember when writing my own INI Parser (from the ground up, it worked pretty well too) I had to make all kinds of extras into it to account for lists.
