    well on most games ctrl is used for crouch and I have been a windows user for years but the problem is fn is in the place of the ctrl on the windows keyboard, so i'm wondering if theres a way to configure fn to work with crouch.

    (I know I can just plugin a USB keyboard)

    Never tried it but; http://doublecommand.sourceforge.net/ looks like it should do what you're asking. :)

    Edit: Glad you asked now, it works really well and i wouldnt have thought to look if you hadn't. Will definitely help me with claw-finger at LAN get-togethers! It lets you reassign everything temporarily or permanently, great software.

    Thanks is there a equivalent version for windows (bootcamp) as most games are not on the mac os yet?

    Double Command works perfectly, thanks!

    Unfortunately it can change FN-key only to Control key, would have been great to be able to change the FN-key to something like F13, or other such never-used key and then bind that key to something in games. Now you end up having two Control keys next to each other.

    Anyways, it makes FN-key useful for gamers. And yes, it works with Wireless Apple Keyboard too.
