Mapper Help

I would like the mapper to recognise when I use the command "sneak n, e, s, w, up, down" etc. How can I configure it to do this as well as recognise the normal commands?

Thank you

First off you have to make a new set of directional macroes, (dont worry, the ones you make will override the default ones).

Have them like so:

#KEY Key6 {@move east}

then its just a matter of toggling the @move variable from sneak to %null and back

You may or may not have to remove the 'English Keypad' package. (Depends on weather or not the new macroes are indeed overriding the defaults)

P.S. that you jdid?

I think the issue was the #DIRECTION settings which are defined in the English Directions package. I would suggest the easiest way to handle it is to use the Package Editor. I believe it is in the view menu, Show Default Packages. Then select all the direction settings from the English Directions and copy them into your window. Next you want to add the addition direction command to the string, for example the default north says "n|north". You would change that to "n|north|sneak n". After you have updated all the strings be sure to remove the English Directions package from your session. This final step ensures there is no possibility of a conflict.
The only good questions are the ones we have never answered before.
