Can't change key bindings...
For whatever reason the programmers decided not to go with a standard movement key configuration of WASD, so I'm trying to remap the game from arrow keys to WASD but the game won't save...

I try to flip around whatever's trying to use WASD to the arrows, but instead of arrow options it shows "1", "3", etc. It's not reading the arrow keys... bug I think?

Semi-disregard. Still a bug where you can't set the arrow keys to other items as they're read as numbers but I just used different keys and it let me save.

I have the problem of not being able to set my crew keys to the numpad with numlock on. Also I cannot set keys to delete, end, page down, page up, home, insert. When I try to bind to those keys it says something like key 26 or something. It also does not work regardless of the menu accepting key.

I don't know if you have resolved this or not by this point, but if not you may want to try getting the little hotscript program that you can find in the umm, Train Simulator 2013 forums that is named "Caps_Arrows_to_WASD" Somebody whipped it up for me when I needed it for the Train Sim 13 game to more easily move around in the editor.

I just tried it out in Krater and it appears to work perfectly fine in there, I press W A S D and it does the same exact movement as if I pressed the cursor arrow keys.

Hey guys, here is a link to the tool City Builder is talking about: http://www.autohotkey.com/
You can create a simple script that you run before Krater (or anything else you want to use it with)

The script will run in the windows tray and uses very little memory, so it shouldn't harm your performance.

I've uploaded a version here that does what you described: http://www.filedropper.com/arrowkeystowasd
(You do not need to install anything for this to work)

Cheers,
