Gulp.. [re]setting controls
Posted: Sat, 16. Jun 18, 01:17
I feel like a moron, I KNOW that I'd learned this before, but didn't make any note (that I could find) nor found in my post history...
So, how to:
- clear/reset a control binding back to "N/A"?
- reset all controls to defaults?
IIRC it was simple for clearing an individual keybind, but mashing keys here so far has managed to simply (re)bind the control to everything I have tried..

1) Click the binding, press Delete
2) In Settings -> Controls (scroll down): Load Profile -> select desired one

Thank you! I am pretty certain I have tried the [DEL] key to clear, but would up having the key registered as the keybind. Will try it again.
I modified the default profile, actually wasn't even sure it was all controls or moreso the controller, joystick specific. Alas, I didn't try it again so will clean that profile stuff up so I can use it as a safety net if it works also for keyboard bindings.

Well, for hard resetting defaults you could try deleting inputmap.xml in your user data directory. On Linux it's in ~/.config/EgoSoft/X Rebirth. Not sure where it'd be on Windows, should be somewhere in Documents and Settings.

No, that won't happen, because we made DEL non-remappable for precisely this reason.

I have come to realize this.
I have no idea what the circumstance was that gave me the idea DEL was being bound. I knew it was simple and... well let's just say there are valid reasons I feel like a moron at times.
@radcapricorn - thanks for the filespecs to look at. On windows it's %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Egosoft\X Rebirth\<steamid32bit>\

You are welcome. And don't worry, that's quite normal to forget or misremember these things. It's not like most of your playtime is in fiddling with that menu, right?

Very true. Also I have become complacent due to some of the other games I have been playing -- they all have assorted 'reset' buttons to revert various things back to the game defaults.
