Keybinds Swapping Randomly

★★★ Newbie

I use keybinds to move my camera in the Sims 4, typically it would consist of W for moving forwards, A for moving to the left, S to move back, D to move to the right, Z to zoom in and X to zoom out, however it has changed somehow so that W zooms in and Z is to move forward and the keybind for A is missing, is there any solution to fix this?

@HalcyonClover20  Did you switch the keyboard layout you're using, for example from one language to another?  If so, try switching back, at least temporarily, and see whether it makes a difference.

 

If that doesn't help, or you never switched layouts, please restart your computer just in case it's really that simple.  If that doesn't help either, go into Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 and move options.ini to the desktop.  This will reset all your in-game options, and if this doesn't make a difference and you don't want to redo all those options, you can delete the new options.ini and put the old one back.

After checking, yes I had my keyboard layout changed, I'm not used to Windows 10. I have solved it, thank you!
