No matter how I map my Alive key or User Custom Key 20, I am unable to open with the Alive menu.
Restarted after mapping, tried new missions, added laser designation and command tablet.
The ALiVE menu should open regardless of the item you're carrying. It's the submenus that reply on the object that's defined in the modules (C2ISTAR, Combat Support, Combat Logistics).
By default, on my American keyboard, it's bound to the app key thingy. So I have to hold the function key and press the right ctrl button (the app thing is the same key as right ctrl).
