Re: Keyboard codes

I think they have to be programmed into the game (whatever)that is? Most game programmers do this anyway but in some games they use emulation such as what you experience ie;W,A,S,Z(they emulate the arrow keys).....there is no way out of this unless you go in to the game programme itself. Thats why you couldnt find any in C++

Is there a way to turn arrows on and off?

on the keyboard laptop itself you can not , but you do that when plug another USB keyboard And follow the following instructions :

    • 1 Use your USB port to install a wireless keyboard. You'll only need it during this process.
  • 2 Download an application to remap your keyboard. InchWest makes the MapKeyboard program that will work (see Resources). For InchWest, after you click the link for the download, you will see a dialogue box giving you the option to unzip the file. Click "OK" to unzip the program. Open and run the MapKeyboard file. SharpKeys and KeyTweak are two other applications that operate similarly.
  • 3 Disable the arrow keys using the layout that will appear on your screen. Highlight one of the arrow keys, and then, in the field at the lower left of the screen, type in the key that you want to take over the arrow function. Save your changes. The program will ask you for permission to get into your registry to finish the remap, so grant the permission if you have administrator rights. The program requires .NET Framework 2.0 or an updated version to make changes to the keyboard function; if your computer doesn't already have it, you can download it for free from Microsoft.

    Ctrl + Alt + Arrow Key DOWN turns video flipped upside down. I have some edistors that use this shortcut for code replication. So I would like to disabled this "video flip feature" orat least...

    An upside down image - this is caused by unintentionalpressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key. Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key. ALSO To change the display from portrait to landscape Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key. Some computers do not have this function.

    Curser traveling to top of screen all the time,

    Disable the joystick mouse in the center of the keyboard. Doubleclick Mouse in the Control Panel (Start/Settings/Control Panel). On the end tab, disable the thumbstick mouse. For my IBM Thinkpad, it's under UltraNav and I disable TrackPoint.
