Steam game key mapping

Recommended Posts

Probably a dumb question but here goes. I'm using an Xtension emulation edition controller. Key mapping works fine for emulators. Very few steam games actually let you do full key mapping in game. Is there a way to map your keys to any game? I've heard of autohotkey but it sounds like you have to individually turn that on and off with each game. Thanks.

You use AutoHotKey just like you said.

Need to re-config a games controls? Go to your PCgames system, go to the keymapper tab, choose the AutoHotKey sub-tab, choose if the map is for an individual game, system etc... program your keys how you want, save. Works with the majority of games. Can take some trial and error to get it how you want. I recommend manually programming the re-binds as the auto-rebind function can interpose the keypresses sometimes.

You'll find the AHK tutorial on their site. It's pretty simple at heart B::X for example makes your B button actually send the X key etc...
