Once you’re satisfied with your settings, click ‘apply parameters’.

Please note that you first need to click ‘activate keyboard mode’ before entering your settings.

Can I use the 3dRudder foot keyboard and my regular keyboard simultaneously?

Absolutely. When you emulate the 3dRudder as a foot controlled keyboard, the 3dRudder enacts as a second keyboard. You can combine both your keyboards. While gaming, for example, you can assign arrow keys + WASD keys to your 3dRudder and use your regular keyboard for all the other controls.
