AZERTY keyboard and uikeys.txt

Post by BlueTemplar »

Sometimes the remapping doesn't work, even with key codes.

For instance I'd like to bind drawinmap to ² (the key under Escape), and I've tried both ² and Any+0x0B2 (B2 is hex for 0178) , but neither of these does work.

Something else I found recently: I was very frustrated with the "wait" activating when trying to change the position of buildings. Here's the solution:

Code: Select all

unbind              Any+z  buildspacing inc
bind              Any+w  buildspacing inc
unbind                  w  wait
unbind                  Any+w  wait
unbind                  Shift+w  wait
bind                  z  wait
unbind            Shift+w  wait queued
unbind            Any+w  wait queued
unbind            w  wait queued
bind            Shift+z  wait queued

The 'keysym' uikeys.txt keyword can be used to
make the file more readable if you're using a lot
of hexadecimal keycodes.

up to this old thread.
I've problem with my own french azerty keyboard, can't :
- change space between build
- slowdown or speedup (do volume up or down instead...)
- can't use group 6 (volume down instead).

there is my uikeys.txt content. I added some command at the end, following recommandations I found on some thread or wiki, but no success about the three problem I describe (but it's ok for the other add I did in the file, like I can now draw on map, I can change build orientation too).

help!

Code: Select all

//
//  DEFAULT UIKEYS.TXT FOR SPRING
//  -----------------------------
//


//
//  Quick Notes:
//
//  1. The built-in default bindings are always loaded. If you wish
//     to override them, use the unbindall and unbind commands
//     to delete them at the beginning of your 'uikeys.txt'.
//
//  2. More then one action can be bound to a specific keyset. The
//     actions for any given keyset are tried in the order that they
//     were bound. The first currently available command that matches
//     an action is used.
//
//  3. As a slight modification to the above note, keysets that use
//     the 'Any' modifier are tried after those that do not use it.
//
//  4. A keyset using the Shift modifier should be bound with its
//     unshifted key  (ex: bind  "Shift+."  instead of  "Shift+>" )
//


//
//  Commands that can be used in this file:
//
//    unbindall
//    ---------
//    - removes all bindings, and adds "bind enter chat"
//      (one of the other unbind commands can get rid of that one)
//    - good for deleting the default bindings
//
//    keysym <name> <keycode>
//    -----------------------
//    - add a custom key symbol  (the default key symbols can not be overriden)
//    - name must start with a letter, and only contain letters, numbers, and '_'
//    - the <keycode> can be a currently recognized keysym
//      (ex:  "keysym menu 0x13F"  or  "keysym radar r")
//
//    fakemeta <keysym>
//    -----------------
//    - assign an auxiliary key for the Meta modifier ("space" is a good choice)
//    - use "fakemeta none" to disable this feature
//
//    bind <keyset> <action>
//    ----------------------
//    - appends the action to the keyset's list of actions
//    - the action can be just a command, or a command with arguments
//
//    unbind <keyset> <action>
//    ------------------------
//    - removes the action from the keyset's list of actions
//    - both the action and the keyset must match
//
//    unbindkeyset <keyset>
//    ---------------------
//    - removes all bindings that use the keyset
//
//    unbindaction <action>
//    ---------------------
//    - removes all bindings that use the action  (command that is, a misnomer)
//
//
//  * NOTE: These commands can also be run from the chat line in-game using
//          the slash command syntax  (/bind, /unbind, etc...)
//


//
//  Keyset Format:
//
//    A keyset is a combination of keys, the main key and its modifiers.
//
//    Here are some examples:
//
//      bind            a  fake_action
//      bind       Ctrl+a  fake_action
//      bind          C+a  fake_action
//      bind Ctrl+Shift+a  fake_action
//      bind          *+a  fake_action
//
//    The format then goes like this:
//
//      [<Modifier>+]...[<Modifier>+]<keysym>
//
//
//    The modifiers (and their abbreviations), are:
//
//      Any   (*)
//      Alt   (A)
//      Ctrl  (C)
//      Meta  (M)
//      Shift (S)
//
//    The special 'Any' modifier makes it so that the keyset matches
//    regardless of the current state of the real modifiers.
//
//    The known keysyms (key symbols), are listed at the end of this file.
//    If you want to use a key that is unknown to Spring, then you may use
//    the hexadecimal notation. Here are two equivalent bindings:
//
//      bind Ctrl+0x20  firestate 0  // hold fire
//      bind Ctrl+space firestate 0  // hold fire
//


//
//  Extra Run-Time Commands
//
//    /keyload   : loads the uikeys.txt bindings  (does not clear current bindings)
//    /keyreload : loads the uikeys.txt bindings  (clears current bindings first)
//    /keysave   : save current bindings to 'uikeys.tmp'  (NOTE: 'tmp' vs. 'txt')
//    /keysyms   : prints the known keysyms to standard out
//    /keycodes  : prints the known keycodes to standard out
//    /keyprint  : prints the current bindings to standard out
//    /keydebug  : prints debugging information to standard out (for each keystroke)
//


//
//  Hotbinding:
//
//    The default bindings include the 'hotbind' (Ctrl+insert) and
//    'hotunbind' (Ctrl+delete) capabilities. Place the mouse cursor over one
//    of the control panel icons (normal command or build command), and press
//    Ctrl+insert. Spring will then ask for a keyset, which will then have the
//    icon's command immediately appended to its list of actions. Placing the
//    mouse cursor over an icon and hitting Ctrl+delete will delete all bindings
//    associated with that icon's command.
//


//
//  Default Bindings:
//
//  fakemeta          space
//
//  bind                esc  quitmenu
//  bind     Ctrl+Shift+esc  quitforce

- slowdown or speedup (do volume up or down instead...)
XTA and also BA I think changed slowdown/speedup to be alt and +/-, and volume keys to be +/-. If you want to remap those I think you should use:

Code: Select all

bind +/- speedup/slowdown
and edit the snd_volume_osd widget correspondingly. Grab it from here and put a local version on spring/luaui/widgets folder:
http://code.google.com/p/xta-springrts/ ... me_osd.lua

(it has a configuation of pluskey and minuskey, I think those numeric codes are the ones you find in uikeys.txt)

Which game?
Since a while the games have begun to add their own hotkey-things intead of just uikeys.txt
For example in in Balanced Annihilation the keys that used to be build-spacing are now to cycle through mexes/energy buildings.
List is here:

I tried XTA and BA.
Ok Jools, indeed alt+ +/- is ok for speeding up/down the game, thx.

Knorke, I'l check the link you provided. I 'll give u feedback (in around a week cause im going away of my PC for holidays now ^^)

Ok so it works.
But it's a bit confusing : indeed I dont have same keys for BA and XTA to inc/dec buildspace (B and N in BA, Z and X in XTA),
and the set of data in uikeys.txt seems ok for some action (like buildfacing) but not ok for anothers (like buildspace).

But maybe I don't use uikeys.txt as it should be ....

Ba has some widget that overrides the values you set in uikeys. I have these default bindings in uikeys, but you can set them as you wish, and maybe ba people can tell you what widget to disable or edit...

Code: Select all

//  bind              Any+z  buildspacing inc
//  bind              Any+x  buildspacing dec
