hiya, newb here!

"= (equals) Selects all mercs in the current sector" doesn't seem to work for me in my qwertz layout, where to invoke '=' is via Shift+7. i can always switch to US layout, but i'd like to know if there is a way to calibrate the game to be qwertz-aware (maybe something in the INI editor i've overlooked?).

thanks in advance!

On my qwertz keyboard with German layout the "select all mercs" function is on the * key, between ΓΌ and the Return key.

same reason i've never typed " on console in skyrim. because " key is the same key which opens console if you hit it closes console so you could never type " which was fuckin annoying. i hate us layout......

anyway in my qwerty keyboard you get = from shift+0 and it doesnt work though.

JA2 uses scancodes (mostly) which describe the actual physical location of keys, not necessarily their assigned character in any one layout. Try pressing the key silver described, i.e. the rightmost on the querty row.

thanks for the helpful responses everyone! the working key for me was the rightmost one on the number row (assigned = on US layout).

On US keyboards, the console key is the tilde key (~), between Tab and Escape keys. Northern European keyboards are different. Also the key to select all mercs on screen is the = ( equals ) on US keyboards. Don't know if it's the same in all english speaking keyboards, i have only used US keyboards.
