I have a game that I enjoy - one in which I can't change keyboard controls - and using the directional arrows is causing havoc to my desktop folders and files whilst I'm playing!
Go to System Preferences
Choose "Keyboard & Mouse"
Choose "Keyboard Shortcuts"
Scroll to the bottom and click on "Application Keyboard Shortcuts
Click on the + button underneath the dialog box
A new dialog box will appear, choose your app, type in the EXACT name of the menu command from your app and type in the keyboard shortcut you want to use.
Repeat this for duplicating all functions of the arrow keys
As an example make the up key arrow the "i", the right arrow the "k", the down arrow the "m" and the left arrow the "j"
I tried what you suggested and found only numeric keys could be put in. Anything else just gave me the dinging noise. On top of that the numeric key replacements didn't work. Any guess as to why?
I have found that the keys can actually be changed within the game, but would still like to know how to assign keyboard shortcuts properly...
As far as the letters, my apologies, you need to add a modifier such as the control key or command key to the letter such as control-l. Probably not the best solution for a game ;)
Having changed the keys within the game though, I'm finding now that about a minute in I'm getting that warning ding with every keystroke, which is really annoying!
