SolvedCannot remap middle mouse button (free-look)

It's not possible to remap the middle mouse button from the settings.

I'm very unconfortable using it to turn the camera and I'd rather be using the keyboard.

Can you please fix this and, in the meanwhile, tell me how to change it through ini files?

    Does Q and E work?

    Hi, which user info do you need? The problem can be reproduced on any system, there isn't an option to use a different key for free look. Let me know if you need something else please

    Basically the answer to my question. You said you would prefer to use the keyboard, I'm saying that on the keyboard Q and E can be used to rotate your view and asking whether that is working for your keyboard.

    Using Q and E isn't a solution, I need to be able to set the "free look" to another key. Also, my post was directed to Lexi from CA who edited my thread asking for further infos.

    Well I'll let her answer, then.

    Sorry for any misunderstanding, I edited the thread to info required to ask for the answer to Billy's question.

    The game doesn't support options to change mouse inputs. The options for camera rotation are:
    - Using Q and E to rotate on a vetical axis
    - V and C to rotate on a horizontal axis (these can be changed in the control settings to any keyboard input you wish)
    - Another way is with the mouse in the top corners of the screen, if you have multiple screens or a smaller resolution setting than you screen you can select 'Lock cursor to window' for more accurate control.

    Hope this helps.

    I was afraid of the answer :(

    Thanks for the info though

    I hope I'm not breaching any forum rules with this solution.

    I've downloaded AutoHotkey (https://autohotkey.com/) and made a very simple script:
    -::
        if( not GetKeyState("MButton" , "P") )
            Click down middle
    Return
    
    - Up::Click up middle
    Now, each time I keep the "-" button pressed or I release it, the system thinks I'm doing the same thing with the middle mouse button.

    It works flawlessly.

    I know i'm necroing this thread but I really wanted to both thank you for that fix and give people a heads up.

    If your middle mouse button is broken use this autohotkey and copy/paste this script. It works perfectly and mean you can tilt the camera again. (The fact I couldn't do this was killing the game for me.)

    sadly, i use middle mouse click as my push to talk, which really gets irritating when i need to talk to a friend while in game using another program to voice with. please make it so that mouse buttons can be altered.

    My middle mouse button is really annoying to work with. How is it not possible to change this key aspect of the game?
