Not possible to reassign or remove controller button mappings in DayZ 1.18 Experimental
Assigned, NormalPublic


It's not possible anymore to reassign/remove controller button mappings. New assignments are getting added to existing assignments, with no way to remove the latter. In this case I'm using an XBox controller.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Open ingame options menu.
  2. Click controls -> configure keybinds.
  3. Change an existing controller button mapping.
  4. After clicking "APPLY", the controller mapping now shows BOTH the old and new button mapping, meaning both buttons have to be pressed together to perform the action.

Does anyone at BI test anything before going live these days?

Yeah, they put test builds into a catagory called "Experimental" and experiment with it there...

This bug can be fixed by removing ignorepointer=1 from alternative_bind and alternative_clear in gui\layouts\new_ui\options\keybindings_selectors\keybinding_option.layout, essentially reverting it to the (correctly functioning) 1.17 version.

We added an override for the respective layout file in Expansion because otherwise people would have blamed us for this vanilla bug, guaranteed xD.
