Summary0005273: remove SDL2/1 compatibility keycode handling stuff
Descriptionthis line is hit mostly with special keys:


i.e. ALTGR, ß, ä, ö, ü, ...
Additional Informationthis translation should be completely removed!

the same for https://github.com/spring/spring/blob/develop/cont/LuaUI/Headers/keysym.h.lua

in short:

number based keycodes need to die! :-)

should be done past spring 102.0


hokomoko (developer)

Though somehow some of these characters did work on 100 when it already used SDL2


abma (administrator)

just informal:

common french keyboard layout:


for typing "1", SHIFT+& has to be pressed! (WTF?)


silentwings (reporter)

I guess its for office workers who would normally use the numpad for numbers.


abma (administrator)

sorry, dumb question:

what needs to be done at engine side?

atm i only removed the SDL1_keysym stuff, but not sure if there is needed more work?!



abma (administrator)

i guess a new event needs to be added with

so no more ints are used?!
