[Tutorial] How to get back left Shift and Ctrl with xfire

Postby Appelpitje » Sat Nov 17, 2012 1:49 pm

Some people may have noticed that since some Xfire updates you can't use the left Shift / Ctrl anymore in game which most people use for crouching and walking.

The solution is this:

Go to: %SYSTEMDRIVE%\ProgramData\Xfire ( %SYSTEMDRIVE% = Drive where you installed windows )

And open Xfire.ini with a text editor.

Change Version=150 to Version=149, if Xfire is open then close it and restart it. Now Xfire will update again but now left Ctrl and shift should work in game! :)

Notice that Xfire is currently on version 150 so in the future it can change!

Changing to 149 doesn't work for me, cos xfire auto update everytime I changed it :aaa: (and ctrl doesn't work again). Changing to 151 seem to work fine :). If new update will be available it have to be change back I think.

BTW: I'm using Windows XP.
