Brand new, installed last night. Went to play today, could NOT figure out how to control the bike. Tried random keys (like arrow and numpad keys) - no help. Went thru the settings that I saw (including keyboard config in the main settings,) still didn't see anything. Went thru the readme, then found this forum. Searched for "keyboard", "key binding", "controls", whatever I could think of, only got tens of thousands of hits. :P
Then saw "Additional Armagetron Links":

In there near the top is DarFuN's post on the official documentation where I was easily able to find default key bindings and how to change them:
Obviously I'm well aware that reading the docs are useful, I only wanted to point out that it took a fair bit of time to figure out how to control the bike. From a noobie point of view, I'd consider making the default controls much easier to find.
Either way, looks like an awesome game and I'm sure I'll get years of play from it. Many thanks go to the developers, and just as much to the mods here: thank you both for the many hours of work you put into making this a wonderful experience. You're awesome. :)
