[GUIDE] Rebinding Controls (Keyboard, Gamepad & D-PAD movement)
Edit: I've now copied this over to an actual guide; yay for sections! http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=230131462
-----------------------------------

Keyboard guide at top, Mouse below it, Gamepad near middle, D-PAD guide at bottom.

Sticky obtained, thank you!


Make sure the game is closed.

1) Go to the game's install directory. eg: \Steam\steamapps\common\Strider

2) Open binds_pc.cfg

3) Scroll down to:

### THESE BINDINGS ARE COPIED DIRECTLY FROM THE XBOX 360 BINDS

### CONTROLLER 1

For Keyboard

4a) Go to the second set of binds. You'll see this at the top of it:

addbind 0 COMMAND_FORWARD KEYBOARD 0 KEY_UP 0.0 1.0 1.0

This is where you change the controls to what you want.


5a) Example: To change your normal attack from S to X, find it in the list:

(Note: Do not copy/paste from this post!)

addbind 0 COMMAND_PUNCH KEYBOARD 0 KEY_S -1.0 1.0 1.0

Change it to:

addbind 0 COMMAND_PUNCH KEYBOARD 0 KEY_X -1.0 1.0 1.0

6a) Save the file.

Your attack is now X!


Mouse
You can also bind controls to your mouse buttons!

To change your normal attack from S to left mouse, find it in the list:

addbind 0 COMMAND_PUNCH KEYBOARD 0 KEY_S -1.0 1.0 1.0

Change it to:

addbind 0 COMMAND_PUNCH MOUSE 0 BUTTON_0 -1.0 1.0 1.0

Your attack is now LMB!


Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to work for extra mouse buttons.

For reference: 0 = LMB, 1 = RMB, 2 = MMB


For Gamepad

Gamepad rebinding is a bit more difficult.

4b) Right under where it says ### CONTROLLER 1, you'll see:

setbind 0 COMMAND_FORWARD CONTROLLER 0 AXIS_Y 0.0 1.0 1.0

This is your set of keys.

5b) To change attack from X to A, find this in the list:

setbind 0 COMMAND_PUNCH CONTROLLER 0 BUTTON_2 -1.0 1.0 1.0

Change it to:

setbind 0 COMMAND_PUNCH CONTROLLER 0 BUTTON_0 -1.0 1.0 1.0

6b) Due to conflicting controls, you need to switch Jump with Attack as well.

Find:

setbind 0 COMMAND_JUMP CONTROLLER 0 BUTTON_0 -1.0 1.0 1.0

Replace with:

setbind 0 COMMAND_JUMP CONTROLLER 0 BUTTON_2 -1.0 1.0 1.0

7b) Save the file.

Your attack is now A and your jump is now X.


With this knowledge, you should now be able to change the other controls to what you want. If you need help, feel free to ask.

Note for analog control: Axis rebinding is more difficult as you need to set the proper axes.


As an added bonus, this will also update the UI ingame!

I half expect them to add rebinding in a patch.


Change movement from analog stick to D-PAD

By popular request, I figured out how to switch movement to use the D-Pad while Analog control is enabled. If you use a PS2 or similar controller you can toggle off analog sticks so the D-Pad works for movement just fine.

Copy this over your settings:

setbind 0 COMMAND_FORWARD CONTROLLER 0 BUTTON_12 0.0 1.0 1.0
setbind 0 COMMAND_BACKWARD CONTROLLER 0 BUTTON_13 0.0 1.0 -1.0
setbind 0 COMMAND_LEFT CONTROLLER 0 BUTTON_14 0.0 1.0 -1.0
setbind 0 COMMAND_RIGHT CONTROLLER 0 BUTTON_15 0.0 1.0 1.0

WARNING: This will break plasma selection hotkeys. In fact, it will probably both move you and select your plasmas.

To fix this, also copy over these settings:

setbind 0 COMMAND_EXT_1 CONTROLLER 0 AXIS_Y 0.0 1.0 1.0
setbind 0 COMMAND_EXT_2 CONTROLLER 0 AXIS_Y -1.0 0.0 1.0
setbind 0 COMMAND_EXT_3 CONTROLLER 0 AXIS_X -1.0 0.0 1.0
setbind 0 COMMAND_EXT_4 CONTROLLER 0 AXIS_X 0.0 1.0 1.0

Your Plasma selection should now use the analog stick.

For me, it was a bit fiddly, but I've got an out of alignment stick, so it will probably work better for you.

Woo, no preview button.

I await the gamepad guide. Trying to config for d-pad movement has been a ♥♥♥♥♥
DAOWAce Feb 19 @ 11:52am 
Trying out gamepad now~

If I had to guess, it'd be the same as editing the keyboard controls, just with gamepad* inputs.

Edit: I can move with the DPAD just fine. However, I am using a PS2 controller with an analog toggle function. If the analog is enabled, the DPAD ceases to work for movement.

You probably need to swap these binds:

snip; see next post

I'm using a Dual Shock 4 which I doubt is possible to turn off analog. I'm able to move left and right now but I can't duck.
DAOWAce Feb 19 @ 12:26pm 
Okay, got it sorted.

Change your settings to this to use the DPAD for movement:

setbind 0 COMMAND_FORWARD CONTROLLER 0 BUTTON_12 0.0 1.0 1.0
setbind 0 COMMAND_BACKWARD CONTROLLER 0 BUTTON_13 0.0 1.0 -1.0
setbind 0 COMMAND_LEFT CONTROLLER 0 BUTTON_14 0.0 1.0 -1.0
setbind 0 COMMAND_RIGHT CONTROLLER 0 BUTTON_15 0.0 1.0 1.0

NOTE: This WILL break your plasma selection hotkeys. In fact, it will probably both move you and select your plasmas. I have yet to obtain them in game, so I cannot test things, but I've commented them out in the meantime and also changed them to use the analog stick. This MAY work, but again, I cannot test it yet.

EDIT: Not tested, but this should work just fine:

setbind 0 COMMAND_EXT_1 CONTROLLER 0 AXIS_Y 0.0 1.0 1.0
setbind 0 COMMAND_EXT_2 CONTROLLER 0 AXIS_Y -1.0 0.0 1.0
setbind 0 COMMAND_EXT_3 CONTROLLER 0 AXIS_X -1.0 0.0 1.0
setbind 0 COMMAND_EXT_4 CONTROLLER 0 AXIS_X 0.0 1.0 1.0

I'll test out the config to see if it breaks plasma. My dpad movement is perfect
DAOWAce Feb 19 @ 12:42pm 
OP updated with complete guide.

I know how to fix plasma selection, but I really need to be able to test it instead of guess.

Wtb sticky. :(

Great guide so far, it helped me set up my arcade stick
Naito Feb 19 @ 5:04pm 
Is there a way to bind commmands to the mouse? Specifically, the attack button to the left click.
Rukumouru Feb 19 @ 5:05pm 
Isn't it MUCH easier to just use XPadder? Seriously. It works without flaw.

Or X360CE, if you want to use the right analog stick to aim kunais (IMO using the left analog is much better)
saylar 17 Feb 19 @ 5:09pm 
^ What he said.

I just keep reading about people editing game files and such things when there are already two very known and 100% functional programs that are easy to use that work with this game.
Naito Feb 19 @ 5:09pm 
Nevermind, I found out myself: replaced "keyboard" with "mouse" and then use BUTTON_0 (left click). Right click is BUTTON_1

For keyboard rebinding? Well, no.

For gamepad rebinding, well, you need to set every key to every button. I find it far easier just to change 1 or 2 buttons instead of rebind everything over to mimic keyboard controls. I think you also lose analog input, but I haven't used Xpadder for many years; switched over to x360ce for native compatibility.

It's probably easier if you want to use the D-pad, but hey, to each their own. This is just how to rebind keys natively without third party programs.

Nice find! I didn't even think of doing that!

Added to OP.

I just want to change a few buttons around to be able to move with the dpad. I'm not going to rebind every single button to do just that.
