Keyboard configuration movement help needed
« on: June 04, 2013, 15:11 »

Guys,
I just recently lost all my progress in DoomRL and I have to restart again, on a laptop with no numeric or external keyboard. The standard Home-End-PgUp-PgDn is not available to me due to my keyboard layout.

In ToME I used the following four keys for diagonal movement - [ - as NW, ] as NE, ' as SW and \ as SE. (yes, I know the layout is strange). Could someone please point me to the proper keybindings here, what to put into keybindings.lua? Or if someone has a completely different experience here, could you give me a hint?

Thanks in advance.

Hmmm.. I've played on laptop only for a while, and eventually just got a keyboard and plugged it into it. No keyboard layout I tried did it for me =/

Do you have a USB mouse? You could use that for diagonal movement if needed - or you could transition to complete mouse control.

I gave it a try for a bit, but wasn't able to stick with it, so that may be easier said then done, but technically it's a movement option.

[] should be LBRACKET and RBRACKET respectively. \ is BSLASH, ' is QUOTE.
