Pressing 2 Directions at Once for Diagonals?
« on: May 01, 2014, 13:19 »

Is it possible that some day I could use the cursor keys for diagonal movement?  My laptop doesn't have a number pad and I don't always enjoy using the trackpad.  Pressing Up and Right together would move me diagonally, well, up and to the right et cetera...

You might want to check "keybindings.lua" file and change the diagonal movement for keys you wish. Yes, the controls are a bit awkward without numpad - but they still do work.
Correct me someone if I'm wrong, but two keys at once is something that simply can't happen because of the console engine limitations. Sorry.

iirc, you can use the PgUp, PgDn, Home, and End keys for diagonal movement. Thats what I use on my non-numpad laptop when I don't feel like using the full usb keyboard.
