I picked up Miner Wars: Arena a little while ago, and it's pretty entertaining (although depressingly limited). The split screen multiplayer mode is a good competitive game to play with a friend, but the default keyboard controls for Player 2 are terrible. Worse still, I can't find a way to customize the controls in the in-game menus.

Am I just missing it somewhere? Or is there some other way I can remap the controls to my liking?

Sorry but there's no way to change controls in Miner Wars Arena.

The good news is that player2 should be able to play without problems - we designed it that way. If you look into game help screen, you will see that there are multiple ways how to operate as player2.

This is unfortunate. The other player didn't like any of the P2 controls, and frankly, neither did I. It's playable I guess, but some customization would be nice. – GnomeSlice Jan 10 '13 at 0:48
