I'm getting pretty tired of holding down control and W at the same time to make my character sprint. Is there a way to auto-run?

the W key can be held down by an AutoHotkey script instead of my finger though - – Aprillion Jan 4 at 23:06

You can change the run key from the default "press and hold" to a "push once to toggle" option. For whatever reason, in the time between the demo and the full game, the default was changed from the latter to the former (Needless to say, it was the first thing I changed back).

enter image description here

There doesn't seem to be an "always run" button, so do bear in mind you'll have to re-toggle the run button every time you come to a full stop, or take damage, etc.

Still loads better than holding the button down all the time!

Would you mind explaining how to change it back to toggle? It might be helpful for people (like me) who don't usually change the defaults :p – spugsley Feb 11 '12 at 0:12
@spugsley Look at my answer, now look at me. Now back at my answer. Bam! Now my answer has a picture explanation. ;) – Raven Dreamer Feb 11 '12 at 0:15
This is sprint toggle, not autorun.. It allows you to sprint with a single click on ctrl instead of pressing it all the time. But you still have to press the movement key constantly. – user20017 Feb 15 '12 at 23:40
