Can no longer crouch using left ctrl. (V 193.022)

Anthony Hellforest shared this bug 3 months ago
Solved

After the hotfix, a certain bug was fixed:

"-Fixed character crouching down even on a successful Ctrl+C"

However, this seems to have also removed the ability to have ctrl bound to crouching on its own. This is very inconvenient, as a lot of players, in a lot of games, use ctrl to crouch. This isn't as much of a bug, as it is an unintended side-effect, but it's annoying nonetheless.

This is a serious issue, as I cannot play with the arrow keys, the way I play all other non RTS-like games. Crouching With R-CTRL is impossible now, and preventing me from properly playing.

After reading the Hotfix 193.022 description this one might be a case of "it's not a bug, it's a feature".

I'm not sure it needed fixing though, crouching accidentally while doing something else was much less of a problem then this is (at least for me personally)

If people have problems with crouching while they do something else, let them rebind it to another key. Dont force everyone to be unable to use the keybinds they prefer. Especially not one as common as this.

I can't crouch at all neither using "c" nor "ctrl"

That last "hotfix" really flopped. I host and let my friends join and they all can crouch but not me. Even in offline I can't crouch, makes me have to use a jetpack and rotate slowly...

Which is a very costly use of hydrogen when you're relying on atmosphere for your oxygen, and have no ice on hand.

Seriously going to need to have this fixed ASAP. Removing CTRL to crouch is not an acceptable solution.

I'm also experiencing this issue. I was able to rebind crouch to C, but that's really not a long term solution for me... the game feels almost unplayable after ~800 hours of play time using CTRL to crouch.

Plus using CTRL to crouch in other games just makes it feel worse not being able to do the same in SE

Unfortunately, I do feel like this a short-sighted way to fix the problem, which for a lot of people wasn't even an issue (I myself use Right Control for anything that needed my to hold a Control key (even had Right Control bound to my mouse for this and other games), and thus using Left Control never caused me this issue). It's a real shame as it's by far the most convenient and commonly used key, not just for me but for a wide selection of players out there.

After some testing, it looks like the crouch function is disabled whenever the Left Control is down. You can bind crouching to any other key, and if you're press it while holding Left Control, the couch function doesn't fire.

A more competent and compliant way to fix this would have been to include a check when suppressing the crouch function to only do so if it's not bound to Left Control key or the Right Control key, and that’s an easy fix for the Dev's to implement.

This is a game, not an office application, the copy function is going to have a way less frequent use count than the crouch function, and in my experience, if not most then certainly a HUGE number of games use Left Control to crouch, kinda surprised Space Engineers doesn't by default.

Fixed in XMAS update v193.1. Enjoy the game :)

That's brilliant, thanks, using a workaround keybind has caused many a mishap in-game, it's going to be so great using a more familiar and comfortable bind again :D

Thank you and all involved in fixing this for us!
