Workaround for customisation

The controls cannot be customised at this time. However, it is possible to remap the keys using a program such as AutoHotkey. Additionally, game controllers like Logitech have freely downloadable controller profiling software. Though, your aim won't be as easy with a joystick as it is with a mouse.
