I am trying to use some of my multimedia keyboard keys for ship controls

- the buttons are recognized and bind properly in game and work until I change instances.

- when I change instances in sector space or tactical view the binds for the multimedia keys unbind

- Ground multimedia keyboard binds seem to have no problem and stay bound

- if I use the console command and "bind_load_file" to load a keybind config each time I change instances, the keys work fine again until I change instances again.

- I have tried adding the buttons 0Xe6 , 0Xe9 , 0Xec , 0Xea to the Ui_settings.txt , same effect

keyboard key... keyboard function... game bind...
0Xe6... Favourite... map...
0Xe9... Back... slot 2 10...
0Xea... Forward... slot 3 10...
0Xec... Email... slot 1 10...

- All the other keyboard binds work fine and stay bound, only the media keys come unbound

I use these buttons because they are on my keyboard beside my gamepad. The gamepad is now mounted to the side of my keyboard , I recommend this setup , its great, if I can get the keybinds working. Here are some images of my setup.

help, help,

many thanks

problem solved, windows special keyboard keys can be remapped using this software and info

If I press my search, favourites, mail, and forward, back keys next to the controller I get these keys instead now
