Impossible to set control keys?



  • Hey,

    I must say I’m very disappointed. There is no way to customize the control keys? How is that possible? Are you aware that many people in the world use AZERTY keyboards?

    Hi there @julacariote, the guys are working on this one it came up shortly after release. If you take a look at this thread you’ll see a temporary fix you can work with provided by fellow Linux user @duff. I swear there used to be a way to link directly to a post and not just a thread but I can’t find it so here’s a quick paste of his solution

    The other problem is for no “qwerty” users, it’s unplayable cause Keys are not at the same place.
    Is there a config file somewhere to change key map ?

    E.g :

    • in qwerty : wasd
    • in azerty : zqsd

    We can change the keyboard layout with :

    setxkbmap us
    

    and get it back (for french)

    setxkbmap fr
    

    but it’s not really practical.

    Hope this helps in the mean time, I appreciate it’s not ideal. I’m sure the developers @geoffb or @richtaur will be able to update you on this when they check the forums.

    I will bug @geoffb about it! Promise!

    Hi @julacariote, sorry for the disappointment! We’re definitely working on custom key bindings for an upcoming release. In addition to the work-around posted by @Affordable_Desk, you can also use a gamepad. We think that A Wizard’s Lizard is best experienced with dual analog sticks because it allows you to move and fire in 360 degrees instead of limited to 8 directions on the keyboard. That said, we know that not everyone has or wants a gamepad, so we’ll be addressing the key binding issue soon. I hope you can enjoy the game in the meantime!



  • Thanks you all for your answers, really appreciated!

    Yeah I thought so too. I just filed an issue: https://github.com/designcreateplay/NodeBB/issues/1451

    (Note: it’s in the pop-up menu when you click on the <3 in the lower-left.) Ugh I hate filing invalid tickets. I hate myself :{
