Keyboard-Shortcuts in HOG4PC

Hi @ all!

Is there a possibility to get the keyboard shortcuts, e.g. "s" for setup working in Hog4PC as it was in 2PC and 3PC?

Best regards

    They are all the same...
    Just make sure that you set your keyboard to MAP and not Abc (pressing the Pause-Break button toggles those modes)

    Thx! Now I remember, it was the same with the 2PC and 3PC.

    I'd like to make a request to restore the keyboard shortcut hints when you hover the mouse in H4 PC.

    This existed in H2PC and I loved it, it helped me learn them all. It was removed from H3PC and has not returned in H4.

    Scott. It currently does the hints for me.

    How are you able to view the hints? I've loaded on a Windows 7 and a Window XP machine. I change the keyboard to MAP mode and hover over the onscreen buttons with the mouse.

    I recall in HOG 2 there was an option to enable or disable onscreen hints in a settings menu.

    I order to get hints to work for me, I have to have a window open (any pallet, output, programmer, whatever), and then click somewhere on the front panel to draw focus to it. Then when I hover over keys, I get keyboard shortcut hints, whether I'm in MAP mode or not.

    Funny thing I've found also is that in H4PC, if I don't have any windows open, the front panel will stop responding to any mouse activity. If I then click on pallets, output, whatever to open a window, everything works fine. Don't know if that's a bug or what. Or maybe it's a Win8 thing. I am trying H4PC out on my win8 touch screen. I was going to test this on my Win7 pc that I've been running but I'm now getting "Hogclock init fail" when I try and start H4 on it. Off to trouble shoot that problem...

    Update: Tried this on my Win7 and don't have any of the same behavior. Front panel/mouse interaction works fine in whatever situation, but I can't get any keyboard hints at all.
