Remapping[edit]

Manually assigning keybindings[3]
  1. Key bindings are stored in %USERPROFILE%/Documents/My Games/Legendary/PandoraGame/Config/PandoraInput.ini
  2. PandoraInput.ini contains many duplicate keybinding instructions. The fourth set of keybindings are the actual ones used in-game. This is most easy to spot if you've already made some keybinding changes using the in-game menu.

Mouse smoothing[edit]

Disable mouse smoothing[2]

Open %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Legendary\PandoraGame\Config\PandoraInput.ini

  1. Change bEnableMouseSmoothing=true to bEnableMouseSmoothing=false
  2. Save your changes.
