Help me to disable console or remap buttons

Since last updates i can’t use voice chat because tilde always summons two versions of console. I used to remove it trough defaultinput.ini, but seems like this not working anymore. Why it’s so hard to change a single key bind in a video game? Can anyone help me with this?

Sure thing buddy.

Okay so, most keybindings can be changed here:
\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\Input.ini

But unfortunately, the console and some other system bindings are not there.

So to edit the console binding you have to go here:
\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Config\DefaultInput.ini
And here…
\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles\Engine\Config\BaseInput.ini

Change all Tilde to None (or whatever key you want to be bound) in both files. Other system bindings, like screenshots, can be changed in BaseInput.ini as well.

It really is nonsensical to not allow us to change all bindings while in game. I’d love to hear their reasoning behind this. Can’t rebind the player list button, why, will that somehow break the game? Nonsense.

Bonus tip. Disable annoying startup videos here:
\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Config\DefaultGame.ini
Change all +StartupMovies= to have blank values.

It works! Thank you a lot. Perviously i neede only to edit defaultinput, i didn’t know about baseinput… And since i have certain problem with my hand, using anything that tilde for talking while doing other actions are problematic to me, so your help was really needed.

And additional thanks for no-intro fix, i don’t know why dev’s think we want to watch that every time… Oh well, after all we are talking about game where auto-run is a feature, but auto-sprint can be toggled only trough bug.

Any chance you know how to fix this one?

Pressing right shift (what I use for run) and num ins (what I use for jump) freezes my character mid chase/lava jump and brings up a command prompt at the bottom of the screen.

Sadly, it has resulted in many untimely deaths and unlootable corpses.

I can’t even find the key combination in the list of controls or what its supposed to do.

I’m glad I could help.

I made a simple AutoHotKey script for that! I press F4 to auto-sprint and then I can press Shift to cancel the sprint part and keep auto-running if I want. Pressing W cancels the auto-movement.

Send {MButton down} ; Auto run key
Send {Shift down} ; Sprint key

I use a couple quality-of-life scripts like that and one to auto relearn all feats after using a yellow lotus potion. This game definitely needs some QoL updates.

Try this:
\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Config\DefaultInput.ini
Scroll to the bottom. Change the two ConsoleKeys=Insert entries to ConsoleKeys=None.


I just hold shift and open the map while auto-running, that toggles auto-sprint right until you press shift again. Right now i am really hoping that they won’t concider it worth fixing, because it’s a very needed bug, but in case that happen i will probably use your script) Thanks!

But lotuss thing is great. Except the stats part. How hard it is to customize it, remove stats and add\remove needed recipies?

Thanks muchly mate.

Finally got the chance to try it out.

No more console lava deaths. Got the recipes I was after.
