MWLL Actionmapper is a java based profiler application used to assist in the remapping of keys, buttons, and axes without the need to manually modify the XML files in a text editor. It is now included as part of the Mechwarrior: Living Legends release as of version 0.3.0 and can be accessed from the MWLL Launcher by pressing the "Config Actionmaps" button.


For more information on using the Actionmapper, please see the Actionmapper Guide.

Actionmapper interface as of 2017


Programming for the MWLL Actionmapper began on February 28, 2010, three days after the release of Mechwarrior: Living Legends open beta 0.2.0. The first release of the Actionmapper (version 0.1), was announced a few days later on March 2, 2010 and subsequent patches brought it to version 0.1.2 on March 5, 2010 before work began on version 0.2.

MWLL Actionmapper version 0.2 was released on March 21, 2010, with notable changes being an integrated profiling system that automatically detects the user's Crysis profiles directory, a windows installer package, and key/button detection for keyboard, mouse, and joystick.

MWLL Actionmapper version 0.3.0 was released on June 11, 2010, bundled with Mechwarrior Living Legends v0.3.0. Added features include ability to modify joystick settings (joystick.cfg) along with a few bug fixes and new keys that can be binded.

As of version 0.3.7 the MWLL Actionmapper will be capable of being updated more regularly as needed by tagging along with the MWLL tools set (e.g. Launcher, Updater).
