After some difficulties with windows, I had to do a clean install, leaving me with the oh-so-user-friendly experience of rebinding my keys.
Now, I remember having to customize the player .cfg way back when the game first came out, but this time that doesn’t seem to work as well as before. Long story short, I can have the ‘Menu’ command and the ‘Cancel’ command bound to the escape key, but this should have been patched ages ago.
Suggestions for Gearbox: make any key accessible. The two biggest ones that I very much would have liked to use were the Esc and the Tilde.
For anyone else who has troubles with this now or in the future, the simple solution:
-Rebind the Menu key to something unused, such as ‘P’
-Open the folder ‘Profile 1’
-Scroll down in the ‘ControlsOptions’ section, and find “Menu”
86 (or your number of key, I think ‘P’ is 86)
…the 86 with a 27.
The ESC key is 27, but you can replace that with whatever key you prefer.
