[0.15.23] Impossible to use items filters with Macbooks

Post by JoonasD6 »

Slot filtering is bound to MOUSE3 by default, but there is no MOUSE3 available when only playing with a pad on your laptop. You can't change the keybinding because the game says you need to bind it to mouse actions; but such unused buttons aren't available. I guess allowing arbitrary keyboard binds for filtering could fix this.

My middle mouse button is busted currently, so I have bound the filter action to ALT+right click. Maybe you can do something similar in the meantime?

I play on a MacBook Pro (using Steam streaming, but the limitations of the MBP's input devices still apply). My solution is to use an external keyboard, mouse, and monitor, but if I did not have a USB mouse I would definitely rebind the item filter from MOUSE3 to something with a modifier key.

Whether the game should have an alternate default keybind for computers that do not have a MOUSE3 is an interesting question, though. I think it should, personally, but I don't know how hard it is to detect.

Due to limitations in our gui system, control inputs that work with item slots have to be bound to a mouse action, possibly with a modifier.

I have changed the default keybind on macOS to Alt + Right Click, I think that's a reasonable keybind.
