How do you drop items?

Post by cjsmall »

I'm running R'n'D 4.1.4.1 (from the Ubuntu repository) on an Xubuntu 20.04 system with a UNIX keyboard. Level four has a note that says you drop things (like dynamite) using the right ctrl key. There is no right ctrl key on my keyboard and I can find no substitute. the single left ctrl key does not work.

What key should I use to drop items?

Is there any documentation on configuring/using the program other than the manual page -- especially on a UNIX system?

Thanks.

Hello cjsmall, welcome to the R'n'D forum! :-)
What key should I use to drop items?
You can configure and use any key you like! Just go to "setup -> input devices" and click on "customize" -- it will then let you configure all keys used in the game (keys for moving into all four directions, snaping and dropping game elements).
Is there any documentation on configuring/using the program other than the manual page -- especially on a UNIX system?
Although R'n'D's documentation is generally miserable and outdated, this is indeed described in the manual (also outdated, sorry for that) that you can find here:

Hope that helps! :-)
