Can't use WASD keys to direct vehicle as commander
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I order an AI teammate to enter a vehicle (eg: Marshall) as driver. Than I enter the vehicle myself as commander.

In Arma 2 i were able to control the drivers action using the WASD keys, but not in Arma 3.

I suspect it might have something to do with my keybindings, but there are no dedicated keys for these actions. As a driver i can control the vehicle fine. - might it have something to do with the "empty" template which i used for creating my keybindings? I noticed not all available key binding options from the config file show up in the options menu.

Unable to reproduce. WASD work fine for commanding AI.

i had a look in the config file. i guess the according entries are


@AD2001 i guess you did not use the empty keybinding preset like stated in the steps to reproduce

you can't rebind these keys using the option menu

This all boils down to #14141.
