Sorry but I just don't remember if I had that problem and how I got around
it. I definitely have both play and pause on my tennis working and IIRC I
just mapped them both to p. But it was a long time ago.
A quick work around would be to add a new unused key to the myth keybinding
and then map that. ie so play = p, pause = q. (presuming q is currently
unused I don't recall).
