View Full Version : Keyboard layout

08-12-2010, 06:19 AM

if I use the chat msg in MP mode, the layout of the keyboard is US. But I am using a german keyboard with a different layout.

How can I configure the chat msg keyboard layout?

Right now the only way to do it is to do a little modding and make a new mapping file (.map file in the localization stuff).

I tried to do this but i could not find the right codes for the keys.

It seems that you did not use the normal keyboard scan codes, did you?

The keyboard scan code for z is 22 but the map file handles it as 21.
The keyboard scan code for y is 46 but the map file handles it as 44.

Could you please tell me where i can find the codes?

The keycodes we use are setup by Direct Input, here's a link (http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/DIK_KeyCodes) that shows them (unfortunately they are specified in Hex instead Decimal).

There is also a list in this thread (http://www.xtremevbtalk.com/archive/index.php/t-94359.html) that has them in decimal and looks correct.
