After The Fall - Auto-sprint SteamVR Bindings


The sport (presently) doesn’t have an auto-sprint possibility. This is DIY by configuring controller bindings in SteamVR whereas on Toggle Dash in-game setting.


As you’ll have observed, the sport presently (on the time of this information’s writing) lacks an choice to auto-sprint.

With the primary dash possibility, Toggle Dash, it’s a must to press down you motion thumbstick to start out sprinting.

Alternatively, Muzzle Dash as an alternative makes you begin sprinting when your weapons are lowered. This in fact prevents you from running-and-gunning.

This information outlines the steps on configure SteamVR bindings in your VR controllers to “hack” an auto-sprint habits by altering the motion Thumbstick Contact enter to carry out a Thumbstick Press motion, thus “auto-sprinting” everytime you transfer usually – this in fact applies solely to Toggle Dash setting talked about above.

Vital observe: I’ve solely achieved this personally on my Oculus Contact controllers. When you’ve got Vive Wands, Index Knuckles, or another controllers – please do let me know if this information is just not relevant for them, so I’ll point out it on the information appropriately.

In case you are utilizing Oculus Contact controllers, I’ve shared these binding customizations below the SteamVR Neighborhood Bindings for the sport (see Closing Notes part for more information).

How-to Steps

What we’ll be doing is actually altering the Motion Thumbstick Contact enter to carry out a Thumbstick Press motion with a view to have it robotically press (and begin sprinting in-game) as quickly as you contact the thumbstick to maneuver.

1. When in-game, open SteamVR (left menu button on my Oculus Contact controllers).

You might try to do that outdoors the sport (through SteamVR desktop window), however from my expertise SteamVR doesn’t present the identical bindings right here that it does in-game – as if they’re two utterly completely different apps.

2. Go to the Settings menu (backside proper gear icon) -> Controllers -> Handle Controller Bindings

3. Toggle ‘Lively Controller Binding’ to Customized.

4. Create or Edit a customized binding to open up the binding menu/interface.

5. Be sure you uncheck Mirror Mode earlier than you begin altering any bindings. That is essential as it should in any other case undesirably overwrite your proper controller bindings whilst you’re making an attempt to vary solely the left. I neglect to do that within the above screenshot.

6. Bind your Left Thumbstick Contact enter (or Proper Thumbstick, if the left-handed possibility in-game does swap the edges) to carry out a Press. For my Oculus Contact controllers, I’ve set Left Joystick Contact to axis0_press management.

Within the screenshot, you’ll have observed that I’ve additionally re-binded the unique Left Thumbstick Press enter – that is defined on the backside of this part.

Word: I am not sure if this specific setting is relevant additionally to different controllers, particularly the Vive Wands that would not have thumbsticks. Please let me know within the feedback if this does not work for them.

7. Check your settings in-game and make changes/fixes accordingly. You could have to repair another bindings manually. Personally I’ve needed to manually bind my A & B keys on my proper controller to their respective appropriate controls.

8. Your customized bindings are robotically saved, so it’s possible you’ll exit out of the menu. Doing Save Private Binding is non-compulsory however utterly high quality to do.

The above screenshot exhibits the total bindings on my controllers.

I’ve additionally set my precise Left Thumbstick Press enter to carry out button0_press – which is the X key on my left controller to eject the left-weapon’s journal. This permits me to eject the journal with out having to let go of my motion thumbstick, letting me reload with out stopping.

Closing Notes

With these settings, you’ll begin sprinting robotically everytime you transfer usually. Nonetheless, whereas it really works completely 95% of the time, I’ve confronted a couple of points in-game:

  • Each time you progress, your motion controller will set off minor haptics that happen whenever you begin sprinting. That is hardly noticeable in-game within the midst of the motion nonetheless.
  • Generally my character solely normal-walks as an alternative of sprinting robotically. I’ve to re-touch my follow get it to re-detect my thumbstick contact enter. At instances I’ve to do that a pair instances to lastly begin sprinting once more. This occurs to me often.

As acknowledged within the Introduction part, if in case you have controllers apart from the Oculus Contact and this information doesn’t be just right for you, please do let me know so I can level it out accordingly.

In case you are utilizing Oculus Contact controllers, and would like to obtain my uploaded Neighborhood Bindings as an alternative of doing it by yourself, be at liberty to search for it there.
