How to bind in-game actions to hardware keys not to layout variables? Keys stops working when I randomly change them in game (Quake Live or Quake III) by alt+shift.

quake live or quake 3.. – swex Oct 26 '10 at 23:59

There is no way to bind directly to the xinput keys, unless I misunderstand your question. Is there a situation where binding to the quake 3 keys is insufficient?

Can you provide a concrete example of what you want to do, step by step?
