I'm playtesting this change. I will upload it tomorroy I think.


* This may be a bad attempt at keymapping, but I have a keymap for casting 2 spells - m1am1f (I've also tried m1a\e\em1f ) but the keymap only triggers the first spell (in fact the button text on the keymap only displays m1a too - am I missing something here?)
You can't do this in the windows port either. It was possible in the early 00's. Sorry. BTW, the button displays three characters but all of them are used when performing the action.

Thank you for your kind words!

Perhaps I could replace npp041 for sil-q (added npp for the fond memories). I have to contact the mantainer of sil-q for his approval. At first, it will be easier to play with the keyboard, the ribbon implies hacking the code to form the list of possible keys for each command.

Is there a limit to the number of variants you can have? I don't want to ask you to have to remove anything, especially if NPP is one that you enjoy yourself.

Also, I recently discovered Samsung Dex, which allows me to plug my phone into a docking station or directly to a monitor or tv with an hdmi cable and have a full desktop experience. I have a monitor, mouse, and keyboard setup at my desk all connected to my phone. I tried out Angband in this mode and it ran really well but I just noticed 2 things. 1) Is it possible to completely remove the touch screen interface if you're using an external keyboard? All you would need is the options button. 2) The 9 number pad directionals didn't work, whether numlock was on or off. Is this a Linux thing?

The numpad is tricky. I can't debug that input method but I will add some functionality to print the keycodes. You can send me that info later.

Thanks for this.

I saw you updated the debugger for the external keyboard, thank you for that. If I'm understanding this correctly, every key is mapped to a number on the debugger. So, the issue I'm having is only with the diagnol keys on the right hand numerical pad. The numerical row on the top of the keyboard works fine. Here are the kay mappings to the diagnol keys that are not working.

7=122 (with numlock off)
9=92 (with numlock off)
1=123 (with numlock off)
3=93 (with numlock off)
5 =23 (with numlock off) - This one is weird. If I push it once, nothing happens. If I push it twice in a short period of time, then a menu pops up allowing me to select "Item", "Action Commands" "Manage Items" etc.

When I press any of these 4 keys from the right han numerical pad, nothing happens. I noticed that the beta version of FAangband in Termux has the same issue, if that is helpful at all (since FAangband is based on the Angband 4.2 I believe?) Please let me know if there is anything I can help out with.

Edit: Also having issues with the 5 key, adding that to the list.

These are the missing keycodes:

I've just posted the update.

After updating the app, go to Preferences / Hardware Key Mappings and make a keymap reset.

I did some testing with a logitech keyboard (bluetooth). Sometimes it's too slow to trigger a key secuence (alt or ctrl + key) by its own. If that happens, go to Hardware Key Mappings and redefine the secuence you need. That's the only way for now to trigger those secuences (you can use alt or ctrl, the app will make the translation instead of the keyboard).

I tested it and the external keyboard works great. Thank you for the update.
