Can the Shift+Tab combo for Quest Info be changed/edited?

Post by Circuitous » Sat Aug 03, 2019 7:37 pm

I imagine it's not a problem for most, but I'm launching DFU through Steam and the Shift+Tab combo for Quest Info is the same as the Steam Overlay. So I press Shift+Tab to check the Overlay, end up bringing up the quest info by mistake, close the Overlay, then have to launch the Overlay again to close the quest info. It's annoying, is all.

Could it be opened up to a user-defined input?

Not at this time (it's hardcoded), but I'm planning to create a new keybind interface during alpha that will support changing this and other DFU-specific keybinds.

Hmm, weird... I can call the overlay just fine, I have more trouble bringing up the quest info...

So for me it'S like: I call up the overlay, don't release shift, press tab again to close the overlay - when I then press tab again, the quest info pops up, but the overlay don't :)

It's a bit annoying but works for me so far :)

Nice, I'm looking forward to that. Thanks for the reply.

You can, of course, change the Steam Overlay combo, it is possible somewhere in the Steam Settings (I've done it before in the past to avoid a combo for another game played via Steam).

However, the Shift Tab combo is problematic anyway, as it is a difficult combo. Be nice to just be able to assign it to something else down the road, so looking forward to Interkarma's adjustment down the road.

I made debugger keys configurable in a patch, because "[" and "]" cannot be typed on Azerty keyboard (they're combos AltGr-( and AltGr-) )

The patch is a RFC, so I can't tell if it will be accepted or when, but here it is:

All externalized key settings:
