We can't congratulate them either for not recognizing this massive oversight. Game is good tho, played for the whole day with my script and enjoyed it minus it's misgivings.
There are still further binds that will suck for arrow users, such as "Q" to leap from one vehicle to another, "L-Shift" to aim and finally "L-Control" which is used while driving to ram other vehicles. I have been able to use those as they are, awkwardly tho but I will try to write the script code for it for those that don't quite understand the program. Read bellow for my original post.
Something to try out anyways, as I said you can get the name of each key in the GUI tab to use your own keys. I am not sure how to avoid the issue of keys doing 2 commands, it's original and it's scripted command, play around with it and if you get better results than mine please post them.
Read below on how to use arrows
For those that do not want a refund and are waiting for a patch there is a script program called "GlovePIE" that allows you to change your keyboard keys to act as others. The program is very in-depth with crazy features and using this just to rebind keys doesn't come close to scratch the surface. There is a tutorial that shows you how to do the basic stuff as well as the wiki which can be found by clicking the help tab within the program.
You can get GlovePIE here:https://sites.google.com/site/carlkenner/glovepie
For the very very basic rebinding you can just enter this in the untitled tab, left of GUI tab, paste this:
A = swallow(Left)
D = swallow(Right)
W = swallow(Up)
S = swallow(Down)
You will also need to bind "Up" as another key since that is for your cell phone so it would be
UP = swallow(Delete)
You can select any letter or key, I chose Delete, if you go to GUI tab and select keyboard it shows the names of each key so you can choose whatever, if there is a conflict in the script it will be highlighted red.
THERE will be small error in game with the phone, you press Delete and it will open phone but will also move you a step forward like you pressed up arrow, and to browse phone just keep tapping Delete to cycle through and once again you will take a step forward. Not a big issue just a little odd, if someone knows how to fix that please post since I am a bit of a noob with it. Game plays fine tho with this.
After selecting keys click the Run icon and now to test press the arrow keys in a text area (outside of the program) and it should input as letters rather then acting as arrows.
When you do this script if you tap "up" then up again and hold it, it acts like you are holding sprint so you don't have to hold 2 keys at once to sprint and to leap over objects, makes movement a lot easier.
