Keyword Mapping

Post by Neverlast74 » Fri Sep 25, 2009 10:06 pm

Hello everyone - first of all I would like to thank all of you who helped creating this game - it is wonderful.

I am playing the latest 1.73.4 test and have to say it is much better than the 1.63. Although installing it killed my save games but what do I know what I did.

somehow I have a talent killing my save games, because what happened I kept using the autosave option and when I died - I pressed F1 instead of F2 so exited the space station and autosave was overwritten :cry:

SUGGESTION
So my suggestion is, as hardly no one starts as jamson all over again after he died: instead of pressing space which starts a new game (LAVE 100 Credits) - it does load last saved version - or show the screen you see when launching a new game. Load new Commander (y/n)

Mapping Question:
I am lefthanded - and would like to remap my keyboard using num block - what do I have to use for decimal?

Some I have already found out ...
num 6 252
num 7 (home) 302
num 8 (arrow up) 255
num 2 (arrow down) 254
num 4 253
minus -
plus +


others are still missing:
num 0 (insert)
num 1 (end)
num 3 (page down)
num 5
num 9 (page up)
divided by /
multiply *
numblock enter

Can someone help me what they are in keyconfig.plist? thanks in advance - greetings from Vienna Austria.

First time I've had chance to do this for a while:

Welcome to the Friendliest Board this side of Riedquat(tm)

With regards key remapping I think it may alter subtly from OS to OS and from native language to native language - I think if you use a German keyboard layout somebody has already produced a Keymapper app that may be able to help, but it may be Mac only - not sure - if I find it, I will edit this post.

Hi, Neverlast74 and welcome.

Some advice on saving: don’t use autosave.
Get into a method along the lines of: dock, sell, refuel and refit, quicksave (f2), select next system, buy, launch.

Always keep a back-up of your main savegame.

Enjoy the game.

Some keys are currently not used at all by Oolite. As far as numeric keypad keys are concerned, this is what can be seen by the game in 1.73.4:

Code: Select all

SDLK_KP8 // equivalent to up arrow
SDLK_KP2 // equivalent to down arrow
SDLK_KP4 // equivalent to left arrow
SDLK_KP6 // equivalent to right arrow
SDLK_KP_MINUS
SDLK_KP_PLUS
SDLK_KP1// equivalent to <
SDLK_KP3// equivalent to >
Unfortunately, at this stage you cannot map the entire numeric keypad.

I've now tweaked autosave, and it should work reasonably ok now...

About loading the last save game on dying: this was the case for a long time, and somehow we (I?) managed to break that functionality a little while ago... I'll try and restore that functionality at some point - hopefully in the near future...

At least the spin doctors were working fine, and sold it as a new feature. :wink:

Are you referring to this, by any chance?

Well, there was an 'accident' with the restart game code and it was broken in many places... we did our best, and it took a long, long time to get it to work properly again. In the meanwhile the old feature got lost in the wash ( and yes, I thought it was done on purpose, when I read some comments attached to the code ).

When we figured out it was actually a snafu, it was thought best not to fiddle with such a delicate part of the code for a while, lest we'd break it again...

But I'm feeling a bit reckless at the moment, and that part of the code is more robust now than it was at the time, so I might risk Oolite's life & limb once more in the very near future! :D

Yes, that was about what I was referring to. And the release notes of version I-don't-know-now-and-am-too-lazy-to-look-it-up, of course. :D

Commander McLane, I don't quite know how to say this, but I think I managed to get that functionality back. I'm testing it now, and - barring any nasty surprises - it should be making its way to maintenance fairly soon...

Fine with me. :D

I mean, bringing back and forth features that originally weren't even intended to be features is becoming something of a specialty here lately (your specialty, to be precise). :wink:

Well, I have checked the code, and the situation is quite awful at the moment. To be a little more precise:

What works (with keycode)

KP minus: 45
KP plus: 43
KP 1: 310
KP 3: 311

What partially works

2/4/6/8: these are considered to be the same by Oolite as down/left/right/up cursor keys, so they have the same codes.

What does not work

All the other keys on the numpad, they are totally unhandled.

You can hack you own support by modifying MyOpenGLView.m (around lines 1250 (key press) and 1400 (key release)) and adding your own values (also, don't forget to increase NUM_KEYS in MyOpenGLView.h) and recompile Oolite on your own. Oh, the beauty of open source! :)

EDIT: I'm new on this forum, hi everybody!

Hi dabadab! nice opening post! :D

Welcome to "the friendliest board this side of Riedquat!"™
Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied

Welcome, dabadab! You'll see it's a nice place here. Feel free to take a rest on a seedy space bar or push some Thargoids (this one not, please) bugs around.
