I cannot get the touchbar to open the menu, no matter how many times I map it. Even to other keys or use the Scan Code setting.

Any ideas would help this old raider out.

I haven't heard of this issue before, I don't suppose you're using any external programs to map keys, or any external overlays like Steam overlay perhaps ? There are quite a few different builds of the EXE available, maybe trying a different build may correct it ? There is a link to a shared folder with all of the different TR2 EXEs somewhere... but I just can't find it! I do hope someone here can provide a link (be warned though changing the EXE might or might not break any patches you already have, which is not ideal).

Or actually this could be a much simpler workaround... I don't know your keyboard layout but if you change the inventory key to something next to it (for example on my keyboard the grave accent key ` is next to ESC), would that work around the issue ? I know you would like to map it to your touchbar but unfortunately I have no idea how to do that .

It doesn't matter what it's called, my suggestion was that new players play an official release before an unofficial port, if possible.
