Well Tom, if duck were c, going on ease of use lines, I'd assign speak coordinates to either v or d if you need x for other things.

While this doesn't particularly have any logic in terms of acronyms for keys, it might be easier on the hands, ---- though you could call it the "dam I'm lost" or the ""Vere am I" functions ;D.


Games like sound rts, rail racer and innumerable roguelikes like Angband have gone on this basis, and while I agree it does mean consulting key listings a litle more while at the start it can help with speed.

in fact, sinse if I'm playing a game I don't particularly have my fingers on the home keys for touch typing anyway, where letter keys are used outside their function i actually just start of thinking of them as "general prupose" keys, rather the way i would think of buttons on a control stick being shoot, jump, change weapon etc.

This is though just personal preference of course, and there are other methods.

Certainly, where actual in put with a keyboard is necessary, as in an interactive fiction or mud game, I do actually use the keys as for typing.

Beware the grue!

Dark.

Hi Dark,
Well, i try very hard to do both ease of use and logical asignments
when and where possible. Personally, I'd rather asign the duck/crouch
command to c, but I don't know where to put the speak location
command. Maybe move it over to x, but I was planning on using x for
something else. I could move it to m, for map location, but if you are
using the left/right arrow keys to move reaching m then becomes an out
of the way key asignment. The w key of course is asigned to
draw/holster weapons so using w like in Shades of Doom and Tank
Commander isn't really feasable either.
