It's uncomfortable to play on laptop.


Problems running or configuring the software, commands & options, compiling, different platforms, using the interface, documentation, etc.

It's uncomfortable to play on laptop.

Is there any way to move diagonally easily?

Does crawl have this feature?

shift + ← + ↑ = ↖

Crawl uses the vi keys for movement, so yubn are your diagonals. You can also use a numpad if you've got one (you probably don't on a laptop though). There's also mouse navigation, clicking where you want to go.

  Code:
keyboard movement options

y k u    7 8 9      ↑
h 5 l    4 5 6    ←   →
b j n    1 2 3      ↓

You cannot push multiple keyboard keys to produce a diagonal the way video game directional pads work (...though if you have a d-pad controller for your computer, I suppose you might be able to map it's inputs to crawl). Shift + direction runs instead of moving a single square.

Seconding the vi keys. Try it out for a little while. After not too long, it will start to become second nature.

You can use arrow keys + diagonal vi-keys combination: it is quite popular among Webtiles players who have no or little access to Numpad.

To easily remember where the diagonal keys are: they are Here, around the H: Y U No 'Buse them?

I am sorry for using a terrible meme for this line: I simply use "They Are Here" myself.
