Forum:Enter moves me south?

From NetHackWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Pressing the enter key moves my character south until encountering something; ?, f <enter> yields

"^J     Go south until you are near something"

Since enter is also what I use to confirm selections, cycle through messages and the like, it is very easy to accidentally press enter once too much, which can be very annoying. Would anyone know how to solve this?__Train (talk) 12:40, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Use space to cycle through messages instead, and be more careful after entering text. Or use numpad. (You may also be able to convince your terminal to send a ^M carriage return instead of ^J linefeed when you press enter, but this seems quite likely to break a lot of things.)

Thank you, space seems to work. I would use numpad, but with my current keyboard layout, I find that rather unintuitive.__Train (talk) 16:16, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
