Bindings...please fix
Super short and sweet...Can you please give us the ability to bind shift and alt?  FFS.  Thanks.  Those are both on your left hand and take 2 easy to access buttons away as options for binds...makes no sense.

You can bind shift or alt + any other key as a second binding while your waiting if that helps e.g. q is fireball and shift q is magma and alt q is inferno.

Yep I noticed you can do that but I use shift for parry so having to use a second key on parry makes it a bit tough.  Just really suprised they overlooked something rather simple.

Actually add a third button that needs to be bindable...left ctrl.  So left-shift, alt and control are not bindable.  lol.  I thought you all played this game?  :)  It's alpha so I hope that was not intended and an oversight.  Thanks for fixing ASAP!

The issue is in the framework of Darkfall, we need to improve it drastically to allow better binding of modifier keys.
But it is on the list.

Left shift is bindable......I use Shift-1 thru 4 to hotselect my hotbars

A workaround to bind such keys at the time is to edit the settings file directly and replace it by hand. To do this:

1. Turn off Darkfall.
2. Open darkfall appdata folder: Start > Run > %appdata%\DarkfallNewDawn\Character\0\
3. In the appdata folder there will be another folder named with your character number. Open it.
4. In it you will see 3 files. You want to first make a copy of input_persistence.xml and save it somewhere for backup.
5. Open input_persitence.xml with notepad.
6. Find the binding you are after. In case of parry look for (Ctrl+F) "a_Parry". You will find the following line:


Quote
    <binding122>
      <Name Value="a_Parry"/>
      <Binding Value="BUTTON_1"/>
    </binding122>

Change it to LEFT_SHIFT, like this:

Quote
    <binding122>
      <Name Value="a_Parry"/>
      <Binding Value="LEFT_SHIFT"/>
    </binding122>

Save the file. Start Darkfall. Left Shift will be bound to parry. You can do same with LEFT_ALT.
