"command" key issue with newer versions of BzFlag OSX

Hi. There's still the issue with the "command" key that was being used in older versions of BzFlag for the "right click" mouse under OSX. The "Command" key does not simulate right click anymore for Identify/lock on. (I do not have a right click or multi button mouse - never had). I was hoping this get's fixed with the 2.4.12 release. When I clicked and held down the command key “identify/lock on” was activated, now when I do that it doesn’t work and instead of identify/lock on” it does nothing, except for shooting… any suggestions? No, I really do not want to use different key setting for this - I had the described above for more than 10 years LOL :-)
:arrow: and btw... thanks for all your wonderful coding and endless hours of making BzFlag a better place!

Hi mrbean,

I think you might have better luck reporting this on the issue tracker on GitHub.

Generally I've found this a better and faster way for reporting bugs.
(Although you will need a GitHub account to report them there.)

From BZFlag's README:

Alternatively, discussion forums are also available for resolving issues.

He’s talked about it on irc, I believe this post was split here from a posting inside the release thread so it could be addressed individually.

It had been double posted. I deleted the one that was posted in the 2.4.12 release thread and then moved this one from the "Servers: General Discussion" forum to here.

mrbean, what you are talking about is a function of SDL 1.2, which we haven't used since our 2.4.2 release. We currently use SDL 2 for our official releases, which doesn't function that way. I wouldn't count on this being available in the future, although I want to look at seeing if we can allow the command key to be bound to functions. However, for the time being, I built you a client that uses SDL 1.2 so you should be able to get your simulated right-click back: https://download.bzflag.org/bzflag/osx/ ... SDL1.2.zip. Please let me know if that works for you.
