Odd 5 movement?

Sometimes when I am pressing the directional keys 1-4, and 6-9, I accidentally press 5 once. I'm on a laptop so this happens more than not. The next directional key I press I find myself the farthest my character can go in that direction. I.e. I'm in a corridor and press 5, then 6 and I find myself at the end of the corridor or next to a monster if any is in my way. May someone please tell me what this is, and it should probably be noted here as well if it is anything. --YaoiBlossom - Devious Valkyrie 17:47, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

This is intentional; 5, g, and G are all controls for farmove in numpad mode. It's the equivalent of pressing control-direction (I think) in vikeys. Ais523 17:49, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
