Also did they add an option to rebind the arrow keys to camera controlls yet? Or am I being too hopeful..
Not yet unfortunately. Ever since beta they stated that they planned on unlocking the arrows keys, but they haven't yet.
Though really not a substitute for the arrow keys as camera control IMO, the mouse works really well to pan the camera around and select enemies and npcs. I had a ls member tell me to check them out after I complained about no camera control through the arrow keys. I found they were right, and I use the mouse now (when I'm not using my gamepad) until they implement those controls.
If you feel like searching through the forums, someone posted an AutoHotkey program that worked pretty well for using the arrow keys as camera control. Edited, Dec 17th 2010 10:14am by Libtech
