Keyboard command survey
« on: September 11, 2016, 07:33:30 AM »
I have a small problem with key Q. I had an idea to use lower case letter for items and uppercase for larger objects, like 'r' to read items in inventory and 'R' to read signs and stuff like that. But of course, 'q' is to quaff (funny word) potions and 'Q', well, that't the problem. It's most often used to quit the game, but in Kaduria it's handled in a game menu (F1). I could also use d/D (drink), but then how to 'd'rop items? Some of these command bindings are kind of standard in a way that changing them to some other would probably feel odd.

What I ended up is using q for drinking potions and Q to drink from larger objects like fountains. It seems to work very well, also with other similar key combinations (r=real scrolls from inventory, R=read signs, graves etc.) and so on. It's a bit against typical key bindings, but I think somehow more logical and easier to remember.
