I have had some people asking me to help them out with setting up their ace keys and I figured I might actually write a small program with a GUI to do it all
only language I know atm is Java so I was thinking about writing a standalone program that shows all the ace actions and the corresponding keys
if the key file is updated it will just unpack it in a temp folder, show the changes and let you adjust it if you have customized your binds, after editing it will then overwrite your old files

Tbh I would love to have a menu in arma itself where people can edit their keys but I have no idea on how to do that, if someone wants to get me started in that direction I will be happy to take any advise.

If someone from the ACE developers wants to do this I will just sit and wait (allthough I would rather write this thing myself :) )

Mando's Missiles addon has an interface for that sort of thing. It's slightly clumsy but effective.

Does it save the keys or do you have to set them up again each time you play ?

I've got a prototype userconfig editor prepared for Six Updater, however i'm not sure yet when it'll reach releasable state. Ref; http://dev-heaven.net/issues/9287
Besides, I suppose options are always welcome :)
To my knowledge, ingame isn't save-able without an external program like Kegetys his ArmALib for A1, at least last time I looked, there are only a bunch of custom keys you can save and they are used by the BIS CoIn system or so.
