Quit-key doesn't work (no.keyboard)
« on: December 10, 2002, 04:49:30 am »

Should i use sourceforge bugtracker or this forum .. ?

Anyway, as the subject says: The quit-key (backtick, according to the docs ?!) doesn't work. I'm using Linux, on a Norwegian keyboard, and to get a backtick (in console), i have to hold shift, press backslash (which is to the immediate left of backspace), release them, and press space (pressing fx. e in stead makes an accented è). This apparently doesn't work in UQM. Any chance of moving the quit-char to some other (sane) key, or adding 'quit game' in a menu ?

Btw, i'm a SC2 newbie.. The manual tells me to ask Starbase Commander Hayes for info, but it says nothing about where he is (some starbase ?), or how to talk to him ?

You start the game in Sol (our own solar system), so travel to the third planet, Earth.. Wink

I never read about any quit key.. course I didn't try looking very hard.. before I accidentally discovered it, I was just assuming it was overlooked, and apparently left out, so I was always ctrl+alt+del'ing it. ;P
The easy way to quit is just to press `
the key right below the escape key.  Lets you quit from anywhere in the game.

...But of course, I am not awake and didn't read your post properly.  Your kb probably doesn't even have that key, and if it does, it's probably somewhere else. Wink
