Priority: low Component: Port: PalmOS
Keywords: Cc:


Platfom: Palm Tungsten T5
scummvm version: 0.7.1

Problem description:
None of the hardware keys let launch the game "options
menu" (resume, load, save, etc) . Only the "menu icon"
in screen show the game options menu. However, in
fullscreen mode, this icon don't appears, and then I
can't load, save or quit! the game.

Here. the actions asociated with the hardward buttons
in Tungsten T5:

- home: move cursor to left
- calendar: move cursor to right
- contact: go to cursor
- folder: go to cursor

- navigator_left: nothing
- navigator_right: nothing
- navigator_up: move cursos up
- navigator_down: move cursor down
- navigator_center: go to cursor

Thanks for your wonderful program :-)

I second that, running ScummVM on Sony Cli UX-50 here.

funny thing is, the keyboard itself is supported fine, I can
enter savegame names or copyprotection codes in Monkey Island 2.

But without function keys or "alt" (to exit using alt-x)
ScummVM on these devices is practically unusable in fullscreen.

in my case, remapping the F5 menu to something like "o" for
options would be enough, but that'd of course only work for
devices with a keyboard.

This is not a bug, more a feature request. You can use
function keys with graffiti stroke : "COMMAND [function
num]", for F5 just use "COMMAND 5".

Moving it to feature requests then.

comment:7 by SF/clemty, 14 years ago

the graffiti area on the clie is in software; turn ScummVM
to fullscreen and you have no graffiti area at all. Will
those strokes be recognized in the game area?


comment:8 by SF/chrilith, 14 years ago

Don't you have a command key on the keyboard ?

comment:9 by SF/davidvilla, 14 years ago

Graffiti don't works in Tugsten T5 when scumvm is in
fullscreen mode. And none of the hardward buttons has the
"command" funcionality, as I say in the original bug message.

I have a button with a blue dot on it, it's used for special
chars like #><[] etc.

blue button + 5 =

I have a "ctrl" button, but ctrl + 5 does nothing

I also have a Shift and Tab button, but those don't do
anything either

also see
(european version actually has a "blue" function for every
button on the keyboard)

Don't know, I don't have a T5 device to test

comment:16 by fingolfin, 13 years ago

OK. So I guess we have two requests at hand here
(although I have really no idea about Palm
programming, so please correct me):

1) Add support for "the blue button" on the Sony
Clie UX50. Although it has a Ctrl-key, so it might
be more natural to map that... ? I guess the
question is how that is accessed/using using the
Palm APIs.

2) The other problem is the Tungsten T5, of which
an image can bee seen here:
tungsten_t5_diagram.jpg>. Since
Graffiti is not accessible, it would be necessary
to map one of the "hard" buttons at the bottom of
the device, I gather. As far as I know, the Palm
(and WinCE) ports have some key remapping
capabilities (don't they?), but to access them,
you probably need to get to the options dialog
first... ?
