AZERTY Starfield: what is the best mod to change the key assignment?

 Starfield does not support AZERTY keyboards, which can be disconcerting when playing on a PC. Thus, players have implemented mods to help assign keys without there being a conflict.

AZERTY Config File is the mod that we advise you to use so that Bethesda's latest game can finally support your keyboard. Below, you can find the entire installation instructions for the mod.

  • Download AZERTY Config File,
  • Unzip the configuration file with WinRare (as an example),
  • Place the "ControlMap_Custom.txt" file in "/Documents/My Games/Starfield"

With this simple manipulation, you will finally be able to resolve the movement key assignment problems. The modder is very invested in the questions that players may ask. He even announced that an update would be added very soon to overcome other assignment problems and correct possible errors.

If, however, the mod really does not suit you, all you need to do is delete the ControlMap_Custom.txt file from the /Documents/My Games/Starfield file and then reestablish the default key assignment in the game.

How to avoid trophy blocking?

Mods block trophy progression on Starfield. This restriction is understandable when you want to change the experience of the base game. However, it is a real shame to deprive yourself of trophies when you just want to improve certain technical aspects.

So, modders have implemented a way to get around this restriction by creating a mod to restore trophy progression. With the “Achievement Enabler” mod, this inconvenience will no longer be a distant memory.
