Physical keyboard codes are gone — as I already said, the codes are not ASCII, but an attempt to provide cross-platform identity of the symbol on the key. We are evaluating whether we want to continue this strategy or return to platform-specific, keyboard-specific codes. We may do something to provide both.

Ok, I’ll rewrite some 120 lines in coll files. ;-)))

However, the function keys yield different key codes, but the same ASCII 16. That was probably the reason why I used them. If the key codes are gone, function keys will go, too, and for my performance patch I need them.

Did I overlook something? Any workaround I can use?

Ah, forgot the final thought… actually the function keys are the only keys on my keyboard that yield a key code (a 5-digit one). I’m reacting to your statement that “key codes are gone”, and encourage you to keep them in for the function keys.

Hello, I Like to emulate photographique-long-exposure (open-shutter;
pose B) frame by frame
i make a mix of jit.slide and jit.op in float divide by the number of
frames accumulate (512, 10124…), then i record one frame and ad it to
the movie.
Of course, it need several day for shoot few second…
The problem is: max hang before I save, or webCam stop to answer… I
lost what I shooted, again and again…several day eatch time…
any hint? Lake of memory? driver of webCam? serial problem?
It will work beter with max 5???
It was so easy with video-script…
I can send more info if you can help
PBaes, laPoseLongue

I love the new standard, even if it breaks old code. For me key codes
didn’t work in OS X. They did though in OS 9….
Now I can use them again. That the model is an american ascii keyboard
layout is convenient and intuitive. There is only a lack of explanation
of that change…
Please do not go back to platform and/or country specific codes, they
are useless. If someone needs it country specific, I have a simplified
unshift abhaXion, to translate big letters to small ones:
