  • Can't edit controls.con for parachute ; need help

    Hi guys,

    I know it's been discussed in a few threads, but I just don't get it. How and what am I suppoed to do to assign the parachute to my jump key?

    I know we have to edit controls.con . I Google searched on my desktop and found FOUR controls.con files! So, I decided to edit them all.
    I added the line
    ControlMap.addKeyToTriggerMapping c_PIWeaponSelect9 IDFKeyboard IDKey_q 10000 0
    because jump is mapped to my q key in my configs.

    I launched the game and it doesn't work.
    So I figured, I must be doing something wrong. I re-opened all controls.con files and saw that they have settings for land, air, vehicule, etc. So I decided to add the keymapping line under each section. I re-launched the game, and it still doesn't work.

    I work on a computer on a daily basis and it is not the first time i edit a config file in a game. But I just don't get it... Where do I do wrong?

    Cheers mates!

    You only need to edit the Infantry settings. And the file in question is located in your BF2 Profiles folder which is located in a different location than your BF2 game files.

    My Documents\Battlefield 2\Profiles\00*\controls.con

    * = the profile that you most commonly use on TG servers. For me it was 002 as I have two profiles.

    Then the lines that should be replaced are:

    ControlMap.addKeyToTriggerMapping c_PIWeaponSelect9 IDFKeyboard IDKey_9 10000 0

    which should be cahnged to this:

    ControlMap.addKeyToTriggerMapping c_PIWeaponSelect9 IDFKeyboard IDKey_Space 10000 0

    I'm cannon fodder.

      Thanks.
      This works. I was now able to assign the jump to the Space Bar.
      I thought it would be possible to assign it to another keyboard key, such as the letter Q, but it doesn't seem to work that way.
      Well, I can live with Space Bar.

      Cheers and thanks!

        Replace IDKey_Space with IDKey_Q

        I think the letter has to be uppercase but I'm not sure

          I tried but it doesn't work for some reason...

          Doesn't matter. I'll keep it no the Space bar. It's still much better than the 9 key. :-)

            I doesnt work because Q is commo rose. If you put another key for that you can use Q.
