Description HeX_Vulture 2016-12-28 18:31:29 CST
From Ch0ww's bug report on git:

I do not know if Odamex will automatically translate all key buttons and reassign them, but when using a keyboard other than QWERTY, all buttons other than a-z and CTRL/SHIFT/CAPS/TAB won't be properly translated.

One possible and easy solution: adapt the keyboard layouts while bringing on the console or chatting, but translate every key ingame/bindings to your locale layout.

<capodecima>but is it really so hard find where is error?
because r5121 is ok
then revision above 5200 is the keyboard problem
so something changed there and its broken now?
<Ch0wW>Since they modified the handling, yep...
<capodecima>it was broken already on sdl1 btw
<Ch0wW>Sdl2 has native outputs, unlike sdl1
<capodecima>its not sdl2 bug
it was same bug
same behavior
