How to use F1 and F2?

Post by Nonjas »

Hi! I'm using Scumm on my SGSII. Works awesome with every game, but I have a problem with Fascination. The game asks to press F1 (Demo) or F2 (Game), but I don't know how to do it.

I bring the virtual keyboard to screen, but there's no F1 or F2.

Any idea?

Thank you!

There is Hacker's Keyboard in the Play Store.

However, it didn't work for me.

It's the Fn key. It expands to all the F Keys, but I have zero luck. I think the ScummVM port does not support the F Keys in a standard way.

On a semi unrelated note, have you tried the AGS port for Android? They have an option in the menu that shows all the F Keys and by touch you can send the F key.

Would be great if the ScummVM port implemented it the same way.

I saw this blurb:
KuroShiro wrote:It's a bit unintuitive... first bring up the virtual keyboard (usually by holding down menu), and then press whatever # of function key you want, and then press the back button. That should serve as pressing the F-whatever key.
But this doesn't work for me.

It is possible to add support for The Hacker's Keyboard?
So you can solve the missing F keys problem, but maybe also the ALT key problem described in this thread
