How to disable P for pause 

When playing adventure games and typing a command (e.g. "open door"), whenever I press the "P" key the game pauses and the ScummVM menu comes up. This is obviously not how it should be - any help on why this is happening and how to stop it would be much appreciated!

Edit: this seems to happen when running ScummVM via RocketLauncher, and not when running it in isolation. Still keen for any pointers!

That link says to remap the key for the emulator:

1: In the bottom field, just click the green plus and it will tell you how it works (basically, press original key and then press the key it should act as instead). Keep pressing + for evey key.

I don't want to remap the "P" key, as I want the P key to work as a P key when I am typing!

Hi,

Being as the issue only occurs when running scummvm through rocketlauncher, have you asked at their forum:

Many thanks, I did and have sorted it it - it was an option in the ScummVM module for Rocketlauncher!
