[SOLVED] Italian keyboard key doesn't work on Windows: keys ] and }

Post by hexaae »

I use Italian keyboard (see pic below) and all chars work fine as expected following Windows keyboard settings except the chars "]" and "}" (near Return/enter key in the pic) which are ignored by games like Tentacle to control music volume. They don't work from ScummVM search bar either.
The strange thing is that the same keyboard key press for "+" and "*" does work fine... :?

I've found the reason: default SCUMMVM keymap assign for "Increase Scale Factor" clashes with Ita keyboard using ALTGR++ keys (aka CTRL+ALT+plus sign)!
Remapped "Increase/Decrease Scale Factor" to CTRL+SHIFT+KP+ and KP- solved the issue.
Now I can use [ and ] to increase/decrease music in Day of the Tentacle (floppy ITA).
