First I'd like to say congrats on an excellent port; beig able to play these classics again on my phone is fantastic!
Though I'd really love to be able to change the key layout. I use an orange SPV E200. In 0.5x there was a set of menus to define keys for the Smartphone. In this one however the menu system has gone and it starts up straight to the Scumm menu. In some ways I think this is much nicer because there is more control over game options. But I can't for the life of me work out how to redefine the keys.
I read the WinCE readme and tried to map the keys by copying the ActionKeys string across. The relevant sections of my old config were as follows:
- Code: Select all
ActionKeys=0025 0027 0028 0026 0075 0076 005b 001b 0077 00ff
stepY3=413 lines; 0 keywds; 19 nums; 15 ops; 0 strs; 0 coms Syntactic Coloring v0.4 - Dan East
I tried to mimic this with the new config style in 0.7.0:
- Code: Select all
action_mapping=0025 0027 0028 0026 0075 0076 005b 001b 0077 00ff
stepY3=115 lines; 0 keywds; 23 nums; 18 ops; 0 strs; 0 coms Syntactic Coloring v0.4 - Dan East
This however doesnt appear to make any difference.
I think I'm missing something. Can the author or someone else familiar with this point me in the right direction?
I want it to work as follows; I hold my phone longways, landscape style. I use my left hand to move the phone's joystick, guiding the crosshair, and my right hand to use the volume up/down buttons as left/right mouse buttons respectively. I find this very comfortable and would love to use this setup in PocketScumm. Thats the way I had it working in 0.5x.
For the attention of the authors, while I'm at it, there appears to be a minor bug. If I launch it from the Start Menu as normal, I get the Scumm screen as expected, however as I start to navigate the menus and play the game, I begin to see parts of the taskbar show through the screen, sometimes flickering and fouling the game image.
If I choose the program from the Start Menu and then immediately press the Home button to switch to the homescreen, the problem doesnt occur I don't think.
May want to try looking at that - its very minor but an annoyance all the same
Thanks very much and again thanks for what is still otherwise an excellent port. Bravo!
