[Running MegaGlest 3.12 64-bit on Windows 7 64-bit hot keys do not work properly]. I tried pressing F to get to Free Camera, but it appears double-pressed back to Game Camera. Tried also rotating buildings with R, but rotates at 180 angle and I have to hold R to remedy this. The pause and music hotkeys are not affected for an unknown reason.

Edit: First sentence edited after splitting this unrelated topic off Nig's.

@Carl the Great
You should write about those a lot more

...I tried pressing F to get to Free Camera, but it appears double-pressed back to Game Camera...
The question is: Why do you think that it is a bug?
Don't expect that on 3.12 everything related with keys works exactly in same way like previously, but different doesn't mean bad ... unless you have good arguments.

...Tried also rotating buildings with R, but rotates at 180 angle and I have to hold R to remedy this...
I can't reproduce this.
Can you? If yes then also say exactly how (even on what faction and building) and tell what is your operating system etc.

...go to the MG-Gameserver-Lobby,
press windows key,
Close MG by using the return and exit buttons,
>>>> MG crashes after closing its screens...
probably related issue: https://github.com/MegaGlest/megaglest-source/issues/111

its not possible since mg 3.12 to get to the desktop by pressing the windows key.
When you press the windowskey when MG is running, the taskbar is displayed, but game (or lobby or optionscreen) is still displayed. If you click something on taskbar the taskbar disappears again...
(I didn't try to reproduce this) ... but good description :).

Acutally, that applies to almost all keyboard hotkeys while playing MegaGlest in that version.

Cannot reproduce that. Other Hotkeys are working fine, no crash on exit.

Great! I should've created a new thread, my post is somehow unrelated to this. First I pressed F to switch to Free Camera, but the console gives me two simultaneous commands:
Code: [Select]
[switched to] Free Camera
[switched to] Game Camera
I pressed F again, and console repeats; does not let me get into Free Camera unless I hold the F key and at the right time, I can go to Free Camera. Pressing F again is like pressing Space back to Game Camera, but still in Free Camera mode.

The same goes to rotating (if able to rotate) buildings. It's like pressing R twice with a single type.

If it's fine for your computers, it's not normal for me; I am on an old computer after a repair install; probably will be updating next week.
Thanks!  ;)

Hmm my first guess is related with some keyboard setting in the OS related with "how fast key is repeated when you keep button 'down'", maybe you have there some too low value?

this should be fixed in svn now.
https://github.com/MegaGlest/megaglest-source/issues/139

A workaround in 3.12 is to enable numlock ( or disable any other kind of modifier key which is active ). This caused a double handling of some pressed (hot)keys, like normal letters.
