I wouldn't be opposed to that, so I would accept a patch that does so, but I am not willing to work on it myself. Marking this as "Wont fix" since I won't be fixing it, but leaving it open in case someone else wants to add this in the future.

There are multiple key possibilities, though the readme doesn't document them for the sake of brevity, so they might be worth trying:

- Move: Keypad keys 8, 2, 5, 4, 6
- Primary weapon: Z, Y, C, A, D, F, slash ("/"), comma (","), 1, 3, Home, End, keypad 0
- Secondary weapon: X, S, period ("."), 2, PageUp, PageDown, keypad 1
- Toggle spread: Alt, keypad 7, keypad 9

So in summary: keypad, Z/X, X/C, Y/X (for QWERTZ), A/S, S/D, 1/2, 2/3, comma/period, or period/slash. (Home/End/PageUp/PageDown are there for the sake of the OpenPandora.)

I use D and S, personally, because it avoids keyjamming with my particular keyboard.

Also, did you try playing with a gamepad? (That's supported too.)

First of all, many thanks for the game.

The trouble is, it is no fun to play with the default keys. And there is no key remapping feature, or is there?
