Unable to set shift key as a key binding in the controls window #4488
In the options->controls window it is not possible to set as a key binding. After clicking on "Binding" or "Alt Binding", the dialoge that appears does not react when I simply press the shift key. I can bind shift + a normal key though, e.g. <shift + /> by pressing / while holding shift.
Be able to set (and too) as key binding, since it is also used in the default bindings.
Steps to reproduce
Start pioneer, go to options->controls, choose "Binding" or "Alt Binding" for any function you like.
My pioneer version (and OS):
The use of the shift key to toggle low-power mode is hard-coded in the ship controller and is not subject to the usual rules for binding inputs at this time. If you wish to select the right shift key, you will need to change ShipController.cpp and/or edit the config file manually.
The inability to bind a modifier key (shift, alt, ctrl...) on its own is a known hold-over from the input system upgrade and is slated to change at some point. The planned replacement is a key-chord system, allowing the use of up to three arbitrary keys (or other key-like inputs, e.g. gamepad buttons) in a binding.
