I've tried a combination of things here:
-Configure all settings and click ACCEPT
-Configure all settings and click APPLY then ACCEPT
-Configure a just one of the areas and click ACCEPT, APPLY/ACCEPT
-Reset all the games OPTIONS to DEFAULTS and attempt to reconfigure
I'd appreciate any feedback for a workaround. For the time being, I will continue to become more intimate with the check boxes and key binds. Thank you!
