I'm using a french "TypeMatrix bépo" keyboard, and even with a qwerty layout switch, i can''t seem to find the "?" key.
I didn't find an external text file with all the commands or settings options.

Actually, I was wrong when I said the SDL frontend takes into account the character, not the key. It's true about the other frontends, but not this one.

I checked and '?' is generated in my code from the '?' key and from the '/' key with shift. If you could send me what the game says when you press on your keyboard something as close to '?' as you can get, perhaps I would be able to add a special case to the code (it's full of such special cases; tough luck).

Cheers!

Hi, thanks

When i press "Shift" + "/", i obtain "9", the one above the L on this picture.
When i try to do my "normal" "?", it does nothing at all, it seems. To do it, i press "Shift" + "'", as you can see also in the picture of my keyboard.

This layout seems weird at first, but if you read about it, you will see how it's vastely superior to standard non-ergonomique french azerty, and other "ancient" keyboards.
For qwerty, it's dvorak, if i'm right.

In Allure, i tried, and it's opening the Help, so it works, in a way.

Uhm, nice keyboard. I have an ancient one with the parts for each hand at an angle *and* a keypad, but I never attempted to learn Dvorak, probably to my detriment.

I wonder how you cope with moving and running (which is different), especially diagonally. If you want we can try to hack together a version of the config file that would attempt defining some move/run keys for the Dvorak keyboards, but it may be non-trivial. Using a mouse is not too awkward, but for a prolonged intense melee, it's a bit error prone.

Anyway, let me rephrase this in my own words, to see how much I misunderstood you:
1. When you press the apostrophe key, it normally would print the apostrophe.
2. In Allure it apparently does nothing (it probably starts recording a command sequence that you can repeat later with the "v" key, because that's what apostrophe does).
3. When you press "Shift" + "'", it normally would print "?".
4. But in Allure in shows Help (well, first it clears messages, if any, and on second press, shows help).
5. F1 doesn't do anything.
6. Enter and F12 open Dashboard allright and ESC opens Main Menu (both, after clearing messages first).
7. Control-Shift-"'" (morally, Control-"?") points the crosshair at the closest unexplored tile.

Is any of the above correct?
