Observer mode keys not working

Post by The Purple Panzer » Sat Apr 09, 2005 9:14 pm

I can't seem to Roam in observer mode anymore, using the shift-, control-, or alt- arrow keys. Is this a known problem in the new version, or is my system screwed up in some locally bizarre manner?

I also haven't been able to get Binoculars to work either, don't know if this is in any way a related problem.

To get binoculars you have to bind the 'b' key to binoculars, it wasn't done on default. It's a mere setting in the OPTIONS part of BZFlag.

For observer mode, I have no clue how the new controls work. All I know is that I can't get wherever I want to go, I'll press up, and go nowhere. Then I'll suddenly start zooming out, and I dont want to zoom out! They're pretty whacked. I say just go back to the old observer key bindings.

Try resetting the default key mappings. They might have gotten messed up at some point.

As far as the observer controls, to move up, you have to press Shift + Down (no idea why..) and for down you press Shift + Up. Just a little note that might come in handy.
