I was having a tough time with the keyboard commands in the game so I decided that I would remap them. For this I amusing a program called autohotKey which is a free app available at www.autohotkey.com. Download that before continuing
In short this is a key remapping software that allows you to write scripts which can be enabled or disabled at any time. Typically I will start the script and then run the game (which can be done automatically, though I have left that out for now for simplicity). When you finish the game don't forget to stop your script or your keyboard will be messed up.
my script is as follows
;start of script
;reassigning the arrow keys
;reassigning the view keys
;end of script
Copy the text above to Notepad and save it with the extension ahk (example companyOfHeroes.ahk). To run the file simply double click it and it will appear in the tray.
As you can see the syntax is very simple. It is in essence the key you want to use followed by two colons and then the existing key in the game. there is an extensive help file with autohotkey that you can refer to as well to add additional keys (which I will be doing) and functionality
Hope this helps - let me know if you have any questions
