RightShift disables NumLock please help

Recommended Posts

Can you please name the numpad keys "NumPad1" "Numpad4" and so on to avoid issues with people who uses RightShift when playing?

To describe the problem here's an example, if someone has a function bound to Numpad0 lets say Crouch, when pressing Rightshift (Run) at the same time as Numlock0 turns it into INS, to which I have no functions bound.

This has been a problem for me for years, shift button cancelling my numpad-inputs, or rather changing the input.

APB is the only game that has not named the numpad keys individually, assuming everyone plays on WASD, which is certainly not the case 🙂

 

Shift cancelling numlock would easily be fixed if the numpadkeys got their proper names, shouldn't be hard for you guys adjust this.

 

Thankful for reply/help 😮

what year do you think i was born in? 2015? i got a numpad let me rephrase. WHO THE HELL USES A NUMPAD WHILE THEY PLAY GAMES?

do you understand me? do you bigfarger? why in gods name should i press an extra button to swap my guns or anything of that nature when i got over 50 keys to pick from other then those 17 keys over there. so tell me why in the hell you use numpad for playing. do you want be special? if you want that play this game on controller trust me i took a look at that and it's grade A controls TRUST ME.

so now that were on the same page tell me why in the fuck you gotta use numpad when you can basically bind your keys to anything else and make it work 100% better then boo hooing over one slight over sight because they never though a 1% would use numpad to move or whatever.

hey @nattsvart_katt

 

After some simple "google" digging..  BUT .. you do this at your own risk, ALSO  AutoHotKey can be detected as a cheat/Macro by BE. 

 

SuperUser Forum

 

To be truly honest with you.. id say 99.9% of games in the last 10 years and going forward will only launch with Key bindings to the now "default" WASD.. and devs wont take time out for the 0.1% .. sorry bud to break it to you. time to change over.  Oh and it appears to be a generic thing with W10 that shift will do that to Num Pad.

Yea already seen AutoHotKey, shouldn't have to use software to use the keyboard as intended, APB is the only game that managed to f this up. X)

 

Any GM got any comments on this, it would be much appreciated.

never mind, I can see youre second quote was incorrect, and that your second quote was just you trying to type your message. 

 

I did research this abit more, out of interest. the issue with W10 , MS has added so many different short cut keys into the os now, (thousands compared to w7)  that youd have to actualy go in to the os settings and begin editing / re-listen what keys you want to do X Y Z,  this is no small job, and yould run the risk of miss labelling or doubling up short cuts. 

another example of  "creating a short cut makes more work in the long run". 

that said doing it via the os would be safer compared to an application like Autohotkeys.   

 

im interested to what solution if any the APB team come back with 👍
