AGI: LSL1: Keyboard layout ignored

Reported by: SF/pmrtvcom Owned by: sev-

Game: Leisure Suit Larry 1


In ScummVM 0.11.1 (as found in Debian Lenny), at least with Leisure Suit Larry 1, it seems that the keyboard layout is always treated as US QWERTY. Of course, there could be games ScummVM runs that depend on this being the case, but this is not one of them. As I tend these days to use a UK Dvorak keyboard layout, if I use Leisure Suit Larry 1, typing commands is quite difficult.

This is really only a "wishlist" matter, but if it can be fixed, it would be helpful.

This sounds like an issue outside of ScummVM, maybe related to how the keyboard input code in SDL works, so we might not be able to do anything at all about this.

We are getting keycode from SDL, and no special processing is applied by AGI engine. Thus it is purely SDL issue. I.e. we have no way to determine your keyboard layout. Closing.
