#7579 closed feature request (fixed)

PQ1: Allow users to disable the debugger console key combo

Reported by: (none) Owned by: m-kiewitz
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Police Quest 1


cummVM 0.11.0svn (Jul 4 2007 09:37:08) Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 zLib MPEG2

The Amiga version (at least) features a keyboard shortcut for calling Dispatch, which saves one typing the command "call dispatch" over and over again.

Unfortunately this shortcut is "CTRL-D" which is suppressed due to ScummVM's debugger window coming up.

It's not a bug per se, but it would be nice to have the "dispatcher shortcut" back somehow.

I'm not sure of the PC DOS version, but i believe it has the same base of commands. Don't think they changed that much for the Amiga version

I don't think that changing the keyboard shortcut for ScummVM's debugger is the wise thing to do, especially since it is only needed for a shortcut used just in one game. It might be viable to give users the ability to disable the debugger by introducing some sort of command line parameter for ScummVM, though

Furthermore, this doesn't seem to be a bug, but rather a feature request to give users the ability to disable the debugger key combination, so I'm moving it to feature requests and I'm giving it a more appropriate name

We do have other shortcuts for the debugger in place, however (namely # and ~).

Has this been decided on yet? It would be nice to have the help of the shortcut and thus original behaviour

One could tell the user in the readme that the console can be triggered by the other two keys?
