Linux x64 keyboard keys not being read right

Hi, very amazing thing you've created here.

I'm running it on Arch Linux 64-bit, and some keyboard keys aren't being read properly in the Settings/Controls menu. For example, the up, down, and right arrow keys all produce "0x00" while the left arrow key produces "Alt". Alt itself produces "Enter"... the problem with this is that several keys end up doing the same thing, like the case with the arrow keys all making 0x00. Also I can't press up or down to go through previous console commands, though that's far less important.

I'm using a thinkpad X230 in case that matters.

edit: Using the 32 bit binary produces the same results

Phew, key mapping on Linux looks quite broken in the code. Doom3 is using a very limited mapping table on possibly the wrong input. I added a new mapper for standard special keys that should at least improve the situation, starting from 2.08. In the long term, we may need to look into a rewrite, possibly using a sensible input library.

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
