I recently preordered Borderlands 3 and tried it. Although the game runs well, I encounter a technical difficulty regarding the keyboard mapping.
Even though I am french, I speak english very fluently and enjoy much more to play my games in english so that I have the original voices and other funny elements (puns, accents,…) that are lost 90% of the time in the french version. So I switched my windows language to english while keeping french my only writing language (all this in the windows settings) to force the game to set itself in english. Although it switched the language as I wanted, it seems that the game now automatically assumes that my keyboard is mapped in QWERTY (it is an azerty). Knowing that the game won’t let me do a total remapping by myself (for example, secondary choices in menu or switching to the next menu are binded to really weird keys like C and Q that make many actions feel very cranky). Also I can’t remap the movements for airborne vehicles and map navigation without erasing walking and car driving controls.
So my question (sorry, I know I was quite long in setting the context) is the following : is there any way (such as rewriting a few lines of an “.ini” sheet or working on my windows default settings perhaps ?) to play my game in full english (voices+menus) while having my keyboard detected as azerty ? For a start I didn’t find any “.ini” in the Borderlands 3 file although hidden items are shown.
Also, I think it will be quite crucial in the end that you allow players to do a full remapping and not keep some controls hidden (for example changing area while in a vehicle or map and menu navigation) in order to get the best out of the game and not ruin all the smoothness added to the gameplay with a cranky mapping. Right now a full QWERTY to AZERTY remapping is properly impossible and ends up with non-remappable keys being simply erased (example : when trying to switch to another zone while in a vehicle [NONE] is displayed instead of the usual E).
Hoping that my remarks were constructive and that you will quickly take that matter in account.
