Keybinding Issue
I am having two problems with the options available.

Since I am left handed I don't use the typical WASD, but instead PL;'. I cannot bind the right movement to the apostrophe key.

Also, I am unable to bind the run to my mouse 4 key, which is on the side of the device.

Can these be added in a future update? As it is I can't use this game.

I don't know if it will work, but you might be able to use miasmod (see the sticky) to edit the key bindings directly in the config file - in miasmod click "open saves.dat" then expand "input" then "buttons" and you can expand the key nodes and edit the BINDING1 and BINDING2 values from there. It looks like LEFT, RIGHT, UP and DOWN are all decimal values for the ASCII (or VK) values of the WASD keys, but I would hazard a guess that using the other VK codes might work as well - apostrophe on a US standard keyboard is 222 in decimal (VK_OEM_7).

Don't forget to press enter then click save after editing a config value, and don't leave saves.dat open in miasmod while running the game.

There's also GI_LEFT, GI_RIGHT, GI_UP, GI_DOWN that might need to be set - I'm not sure how the game uses these differently from the regular LEFT,RIGHT,UP,DOWN, but these appear to be string values which is different, though I can still see the same decimal codes in them.

Your mouse 4 key might be 4, 5 or 6 in VK codes, otherwise you may be able to use the software that came with your mouse to bind it to any keyboard button.

List of VK codes (this is all hex, so you need to convert to decimal):

You could also try the arrow keys. They work surprisingly well for many left-handed players.
