After doing so much texture testing in Arena, I finally broke down and created what I believe to be the best possible TES:Arena key layout for Dosbox.

 

TES:Arena Remapped is a custom mapper.txt file to modernize Arena's controls while maintaining the ability to easily enter text. 

 

FEATURES

  • Full WASD movement controls (arrow key and numpad movement unaltered)
  • Slide left and right keys (Q,E)
  • Dedicated World Map, Long Jump, and Quick Cast keys
  • Most keys moved for ease of access and to mirror modern Bethesda games (e.g. quick cast is C and ready weapon is F)
  • While L ALT is held down all keys revert to original keys for entering text. Releasing L ALT returns them to the new control scheme.
  • Handy keyboard JPEG showing the new controls (also linked below).
  • Here is an image of the keyboard layout... https://www.dropbox....Layout.png?dl=0

     

I have uploaded the file on both Nexusmods and Moddb.

P.S. It works REALLY well.

I just downloaded Arena and I'd like to use this, but it doesn't seem to be working for me. I placed the mapper.txt in the DOSBox folder as directed, but the controls in game aren't changed. Please help, I don't understand what I'm doing wrong.

I'm wondering how would I switch it so the slide/strafe keys would be A and D, while making the Q and R keys the turning keys?

I tried doing this many times, I have downloaded the game with Dos-box from the Bethesda website and have tried putting the mapper text file into the correct place but it does not work. Any help would be appreciated.

JoePod, 

 

That is because the Bethesda download doesn't include DosBox which is required to get it to run in any environment that isn't DOS. Look here  for the "fully loaded" download then add my mapper file to the root directory.

Get a copy of Arena from UESP first and foremost. It's the best version. Then just drag this mapper in the main Arena directory.

Also get it's copy of Daggerfall while you're at it. It's also the best version.
