Receiver unplayable on an azerty keyboard

Post by Nyamiou » Sun Jun 24, 2012 2:23 pm

If I change the key input the ingame menu will still display the default ones also I can't change the key for '?'.

The game help overlay is hard-coded to display the default keys.

That's nothing to do with your keyboard, it's just that that part of the game hasn't been implemented (yet?)
I don't know if it ever will be, Unity doesn't seem especially pleasant for querying the actual key your virtual axes are bound to, and in fact a scary proportion of commercial games lack this functionality ...

As for rebinding ?, I'm not sure I can help beyond pointing out that it actually has nothing to do with the "?" key.
On a QWERTY keyboard, the ? is on the same key (but shifted) as the /

Since people presumably use it more commonly for its ? functionality, it's listed as such in the controls.
The specific key the game is actually expecting you to press is in fact the "/" key, however.
Hopefully that's in some way useful ...
