I want to change the console command key to a different key but how do I do this?

KF uses this key ' which I find hard to avoid when typing to other players, is there some way that I can change it to something else like

If you open User.ini which is in the Killing Floor system folder, you can find the direct key binds. I'm not quite sure I understand which key you are trying to find but if you can find it in the list, then set it equal to "ConsoleToggle" without the quotation marks. That is the command that brings up the console.

Since the shift key is a button, you cannot use it to modify another key outside of console and chat. Personally I either bind chat messages to keys ahead of time or use a mic.

Key assigned in configuration screek, user.ini or via console command "set input <key> ConsoleToggle" works only in game. When you are browsing menus or chatting, the default console key is used regardless is it bound to ConsoleToggle, or not.

User.ini :D thanks I've been searching for DefaultInput.ini and Input.ini....Silly me

Anyway I loaded up User.ini and it is assigned to the Tilde key so I guess that means unreal thinks my ' is actually the Tilde key which it isn't.

The keys that you assign to the console is Case Sensitive just to let you know and you also have to type in the name of the symbol for example if you want to use - you have to type in Minus instead of -

So yeah it's hard to find out what some symbols are called. I always thought that this & was called a Ampersand but apparently the @ symbol is also called and Ampersand but that doesn't matter since Unreal doesn't recognize Ampersand so how do you assign these keys???

It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't use KF so much but I use it tons.

So what do I have to type in the console key for:
