    A suggestion for the Competition Tips

    The amount of games with only WASD keys to move is too damn high ! ^^

    I suggest to add this in the competition tips : “Some persons have QWERTY keyboard and others have¬†AZERTY keyboard. So let the player choose his own keys to move or just set W AND Z to move forward, A AND Q to move to the left, S to move back, D to move to the right. Or, use the directional keys.”

      Do Unity’s “Horizontal” and “Vertical” inputs account for AZERTY keyboards?

      Yes, with unity there isn’t any problem.

      Best to make it configurable. For example, I have QWERTZ keyboard, similar to regular US keyboard with Y and Z swapped.

      Well… I didn’t knew that there were QWERTZ keyboards ^^ So, the best way is definitely to let the player choose the keys.
