    And a solution for this is to use the button twice like I said earlier in my post.

    The d-pad allows you to scroll up and down the action menu by default.

    How come sometimes, when I set my own controls, they sometimes come up in red?

    AND

    If I set two commands to the same key, what key would do what? - eg: Let's say I set "B" for shooting and "B" for running, would the "B" key shoot instead of run since I set it shoot first?
    hi,
    to scroll thru list on left, use the mouse wheel or the '[' or ']' keys.
    keys come up in red means another function is using the same key.
    you can use the same key for different functions, assuming that the keys are in different context.
    for example, i use the B key to bring up binoculars as infantry, but i have B bound to 'autohover' in helicopter. it is still ok as it cannot interfere with each other.

    Just to add something in (Question).

    - What is the difference between thrust analogue and normal thrust (Aircraft)
    - What do the 4 slider bars for the controller settings do?
    - The two turbo's - which one is necessary and is it useful?

    Use your mouse's scroll wheel. These are the keys I mostly use in ArmA 2:

    On foot:

    WASD - Movement
    Q and E - Leaning.
    Alt - Looking around. (With my character's head)
    Shift - Walking.
    Scroll mouse - Scrolling the action menu.
    Mouse, Left and Right click - Firing and aiming.

    EDIT: About the turbo... In a car or tank, I just hold E, it's like pressing both W and Shift together. In an aircraft... I only know of the Q key to increase thrust/torque.

    In a land vehicle:

    Q, W and E - Q = Slow, W = Normal speed, E = Pedal to the metal (Well, it's like W with Shift *Which is Turbo*)
    SD - Turning.
    Alt - Looking around both in 1st person view and 3rd person view.
    TAB or #2 menu, just press 2 on your keyboard - Targeting enemy vehicles if I have an AI gunner, you can use '2' to target infantry too, only ones that have already been spotted though.
    Keypad Enter - Changing to 1st person or 3rd person view.
    Scroll mouse - Scrolling the action menu.
    Mouse, Left and Right click - Firing and aiming.

    In an aircraft:

    Q and Z - Increase and decrease thrust/torque.
    WASD - Tilt front, left, back, right. I never use the mouse to turn my chopper or plane.
    Alt - Looking around both in 1st person view and 3rd person view.
    TAB or #2 menu, just press 2 on your keyboard - Targeting enemy vehicles if I have an AI gunner, you can use '2' to target infantry too, only ones that have already been spotted though.
    Keypad Enter - Changing to 1st person or 3rd person view.
    Scroll mouse - Scrolling the action menu.
    Mouse, Left and Right click - Firing and aiming.

    If the enemy vehicle is on radar and it isn't in the #2 menu, just press TAB with for example, a tank's main cannon and it'll target it if there is line of sight. This is best done with an AI gunner.
