[already exists] go to maps by keypress
« on: 16 January 2016, 19:57:27 »
When setting up a game, the ability to go to maps that start with 'h' by clicking in the map selection field and pressing 'h'.

or any of the other 25 letters in the English alphabet. ;)

Perhaps a key combination would be needed to prevent conflicts. ex: press 'alt-h'.

Does there exist any idea how to communicate this behaviour to the common user ?

In both version of MG, I tried shift + <key>  and it didn't work for me.

I guess I will need detailed instructions on using a key combination. :\

If you want a map that starts with the letter T, shift+t and click the next map button

Imo only 2 ways:
- on the "keyboard setup" list,
- in the hints.
