Obviously it’s annoying when a game does not have a key customization option to map the keys different from default. Unfortunately Dead Rising 2 is also one of those games that don’t feature any option to customize keys.
But this does not mean that you can’t customize them at all. You can edit them by editing a text file which contains info about the key mapping. You can find this file in
Like before, change the keys to your own preference.
How to Customize Dead Rising 2 Controls
1. Open “keymap.txt”-Example.
2. Go to any control command you want to edit, lets say “COMMAND_KBOARD_EMULATE_LTHUMB_UP”( KEY_W, HELD, ….)
now change KEY_W to KEY_UP or any other key you want in place of it.
You can do the same for any other key you want to change, you will to replace the corresponding key with the key you want as in example.
Note.Keep in mind that there are other actions assigned to W, such as COMMAND_AI_VEHICLE_ACCELERATE. So, make sure you don’t mess it up and better back up before you start editing.
Tip. In PC version of the game, you might be unable to bind some keys. For example the extra mouse buttons usually are not bound by this method. You can use your mouse editor to bind that mouse button to some other button from the keyboard (e.g shift or any other button) which actually can be mapped easily in the text file. So now when you will press your mouse button, it will activate shift and the respective action will be performed.
