Left-Handed Mouse Issues

I know I'm in the minority here, but I'm a left-handed gamer, and I have Windows setup such that my mouse is left-handed. Buttons one and two are swapped, left-click is right-click and vice versa. I haven't yet run into a game where that was a problem, but in League of Legends, it is. The game remaps (or hard-maps) my mouse to a right-handed setup, which is excruciatingly annoying and frustrating (if you don't believe me, try switching your Windows setting for awhile and see how well you do). Additionally, I can't bind keys to the numeric keypad for some unknown reason, which is where I usually put things since having two hands right next to each other (wasd and left-hand mouse) is quite uncomfortable.

Has anyone been able to fix these issues? Is there any hope they'll ever be fixed?

Is there anything in the ingame options you can change to remap the mouse?

Wrenchmen do not work for Riot. They are well respected helpful people who we've chosen from the community to receive Wreachmen status. They also know a lot about computers and common problems people have with the game.

No, there's nothing in the in-game options that will let you change it. You can rebind your mouse 2 command (i.e. auto-move button) to another mouse button, like mouse 3, but you can't rebind mouse 1. Which is to say, you can't put it into left-handed mode.

Not sure why're your trolling instead of reading, we've had a workaround for this for a while now,

I'm a left hander / How do I use the keypad?
You can add these to [GameEvents] (add it if it doesn't exist) to input.ini file.

evtScrollUp = [Num8]
evtScrollDown =[Num2]
evtScrollLeft = [Num4]
evtScrollRight = [Num6]

IMPORTANT: Make sure not to modify the input.ini file under defaults as that will break patching. Modify the one under \League of Legends\game\DATA\CFG and add one if it doesn't exist. You can use the one under defaults as a guide.

no they haven't

this has nothing to do with the keypad

it has everything to do with the fact that you can't reverse the primary/secondary mouse buttons in-game
