ALT key combo problem

Post by Raziel »

Hi there,

I'm facing a problem that stems from key combos with ALT.
https://bugs.scummvm.org/ticket/12012#comment:6

Actually ALT+ W A S D X and C assert out in my port.
I have bisected the code that introduced the assertion (in the bug item), but i'd like to know if there is an "easy" way to fix or workaround that showstopper?

I know some of the key combos are bound to actions, like
ALT + S takes a screenshot and
ALT + X quits games from the scumm engine.

I'm pretty sure that all the others also have specific commands bound to them, i have yet to invest time to find them out.

But maybe someone can point me to a workaround in the code (ifdef some lines e.g.) to make that annoying assertion freeze at least go away?

Thank you very much

Edit:

I can see that in sdl-events the byteorder, which handles Big and Little Endian, has been taken out, not sure if that matters, but since i'm on one of the few Big Endian platforms (and using the SDL backend), i thought i mention it.
