View Full Version : New patch wiped out my keymaps (FYI)

Couldn't figure out what was going wrong, I'd spawn into a quick mission builder for want to test out the new patch and have some fun but the plane would instantly do some crazy flopping about and my joystick, re-calibrated, re-installed did no good.

Come to find out, I went into the keymap and it appears that it somehow got reset to default. So, no biggie.. just took 5 minutes and re-mapped everything.

Dunno if anyone else has had such a problem, but just thought I'd throw it out there to save some grief, if so.

Best,

Didn't change anything on my machine. Installed and ran perfectly. Even the wings stayed on my P-51 at 650.

I saved my user settings as I always do before patching, just in case. But it all went fine and I had no need to use my back-up. I guess the moral is: always keep a copy of stuff you wouldn't want to lose.

Hello http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I too got the same problem when I installed the patch, and I corrected it thinking that I must have done something http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif.

I keep hearing of this problem and that problem yet have not run into them myself yet.....However I'm inspired to ask....

"How many of you had the leaked and warned against patch in your files and then added 2.04 over it?"

I had 2.02, and also no troubles straight over it.

Good question. I had it, then reverted back to the old version when I learned it wasn't legit.. but I wonder if perhaps it left something behind that triggered the "issue" when I upgraded to 2.04?

Interesting thought! I dunno.

In the end, not a huge problem.. took me about 10 minutes or so to completely remap everything. The biggest hassle has always been the 8-way hat because of the crappy keymapping software.. but it wasn't the end of the world.

Best,

I never had 2.02, went strait from 2.01 to 2.04. First time i played online, i had to rebind all my stuff, but i did it quickly and left a few things out (veiws and such). Then a couple days later it suddenly reverted its sefl back. Weird.

I went on HL just now to fly, but when I got into a game all my controls were blank! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

So I quit HL and started up AEP (offline) to rebuild the controls, I went down the key list and everything was back to normal http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

very weird stuff
