Binding the Spacebar as a Control

Hello - first post, hooray!

I would have searched for this, but apparently I can't log in at the moment, so I can't use that feature. To be honest I don't even know if this will work, but whatever.

All I'm wondering is how you can bind the "Spacebar" as a control for Soldat. When you try to do it through the Player screen like normal, the act of pressing the spacebar to make it the key selects the option again, so you go around in circles trying to assign it but then selecting it again.

If it's not possible through the GUI, I'll just do it through the ini, but I need to know the key code for the spacebar to do that. So any help you can provide is appreciated :).

This is a known problem. What you have to do is click on the function to which you want to assign the 'Spacebar' as a control. Now, press the ?Spacebar?, hold it down and click on another tab e.g. 'Start Game', 'Join game'?etc and then let go of it. That?s it! The ?Spacebar? is now is assigned to a function.

Yes that worked for me.

Another way to bind space bar is to edit soldat.ini

In the [CONTROLS] section, edit the action to number 57. This is the key for spacebar.
