Different Keyboard configs

Post by Just0r » Sun Apr 09, 2017 6:34 pm

Quick question, is there a way to say have Q-E Set to Strafe Left/Strafe Right on one character and have Q and E be something else on another character?

It may be a quick question but thanks to Mythic, it's not a quick answer.

Well, the quick answer is yes, but that does you no good.

If I remember correctly, the game stores a single batch of key settings for each DAOC installation (each copy of the game in its own folder).

Therefore, if you want two characters to have different key settings, you have to launch them from different DAOC installations (different folders), and you also have to diddle around with Mythic's paths.dat file.

If you use Mojo's virtual folders, Mojo handles paths.dat automatically for you.

If you want to do it yourself, with whole copies of the DAOC folder, read this.

After you make additional DAOC folders, set the launch folder for a particular toon on its Properties window. You may have to click "show more."
