Doom 1 and 2 - change keyboard layout?
I admit I may very well have missed it entirely, and I have looked, but is there anyway to change the key binding in Doom and Doom 2? Those two games, having grown up with them, I still prefer to control room with the arrow keys with the right Ctrl key to fire and left Shift to run. While I do own the regular versions on here (and even their original disks), I want to play through the ones included with the BFG edition for the achievements and truth be told, they seem to run better on my system.

Thanks for any input you can provide!

I think the bindings in Doom 3 apply to D1 and 2, I have never played them much through BFG, I must check this out. Have you tried using the wad files with GZDoom? I highly recommend it.
It is possible to unlock the Steam achievements while using a source port (such as GZDoom)?

I don't believe so.
That's too bad. Thanks for the reply.

Set the keyboard commands via the in game menu (Doom 3). Then exit the game and find your Doom 3 folder. The default directory is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\DOOM 3 BFG Edition\base, but it may be different on your system if Steam is installed elsewhere. Within the BASE folder locate the DEFAULT.CFG file. Edit it with Notepad or a similar text editor. You should be able to reconfigure the keys here. Save the file and relaunch Doom 3 BFG. The keys in Doom 1 and Doom 2 should now be configured to your liking.
