How to Customize Mafia 2 Controls Using AutoHotKey
Let’s consider an age old situation, that you are an old hardcore FPS fan from the days of Wolfenstein and Doom, using ASD and RMB for movement.
You still use the same configuration and are pretty disappointed with Mafia 2, not offering any option to map keys of your choice.
What can be done to have you playing with your native FPS controls ? AutoHotKey has the answer.
You can pretty much map any key for the game using application by following the guide below.
Create a text file and name it ‘Mafia 2.ahk’.
#NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases. SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability. SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory. #InstallMouseHook #InstallKeybdHook #IfWinActive ahk_class Mafia II RButton::Up
Paste the above code in this text file and save the file.
Install AutoHotKey application and double click this script file you just created.
RMB has been mapped to forward in Mafia II.
