@fassFlash - please don't bump old threads if you don't have anything valuable to contribute. Many people don't have game controllers and so a lot of games will need keyboard control.

The reply wasn't really useful indeed...but anything bumping this thread is a good thing to me :p
It's really annoying to see most games stuck with WASD when using an azerty keyboard
@Ashley Maybe it would be a neat addition in the "keyboard" manual page to have a one line reminder like: "Note that other countries may use a different keyboard layout, you may want to provide an alternative to the common wasd keys as game controls."

@Ashley Yay^^
Even if I'm an azerty user, it's nice to have the ZQSD example in there, but maybe you could point to a more general resource as qwertz or qzerty (or other layouts) seems as popular if not even morelemo2013-05-01 19:47:49

When supporting international keyboards, don't forget that some countries have Z and Y the opposite way (QWERTZ; YXCVBN vs. QWERTY; ZXCVBN)
