Better Controls

Better Controls is a new client-only mod that includes many more toggle keybinds and options than Better Sprinting. It's available for Forge and Fabric.

While not a direct replacement, I intend to support Better Controls in the future and eventually stop updating Better Sprinting.


- Sprint key can be set to Tap or Hold mode
- Toggle keys for sprinting and sneaking
- Option to turn off double tapping W
- Option to sprint in all directions in singleplayer
- Configurable speed boost when flying in creative/spectator mode
- Option to continue flying when touching the ground

- To configure the mod, click the Better Sprinting button in Controls, or press the configuration key in-game (default: 'O')
- To configure update notifications in Minecraft 1.13/1.14, open the config folder (same location as the mods folder), and edit the bettersprinting-client.toml file in a text editor


- While sprinting, press the Sprint key again to stop
- Opening a GUI while toggle sneaking makes you automatically stand up until you close it
- LAN multiplayer allows sprinting in all directions if the host has the mod installed


Use the /bettersprinting admin command to enable special features, or automatically disable the mod for players on the server. If you don't have a Forge server, you can read about the server protocol to implement a custom plugin and benefit from the features.

Old Versions

- Old releases for Minecraft versions between 1.2.5 - 1.8 are available in the archive
- If you experience a mod conflict, try installing PlayerAPI Core (only applies to versions 2.0.3 and older)
- In 1.7.10, vanilla clients cannot join Forge servers; if you install the mod on a 1.7.10 server, your users will need to install Forge (the mod itself is not required)
