I can't change the keyboard layout to german
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Every time I fly a helicopter or viewing the controls in the 'Options' menu, I have an english keyboard layout. my keyboard is a german one, so I need a german layout, so Z is shown as Y and vice versa. Also I can't toggle the layout by pressing Alt + Shift. In every other game it works fine.

  2. Look at Helicopter Movement
  3. You will see Collective raise is Q while Collective lower is Z. But on a german keyboarad it should be Y.

Problem is not the y and z but rather stuff like the ä and ö, which have whole different meanings in the options menu, for example sitting down

Yeah, but I just took this as an exapmple.

ugh, must be painful to setup your key bindings like that D:


Not that I have the problem; but it also applies to other 'non-US' layouts.

And although it's not really a bug, I do think it would be a nice gesture to have several presets for different keyboard layouts.
